Astrologer Richard Swatton reminded me that, according to traditional bounds and dignities by term, the malefics rule the final degrees of all the signs. Neptune is the planet of dreams, illusions, and subconscious, so having Neptune at 29 degrees can show someone who runs as far from reality as they can, getting lost in their delusions and fantasies, or who rejects their fantasies and imaginative side.
