You're right, it's not easy to find info online on the "IC Conjunct Neptune". I believe the IC is also known as the Nadir, and I tried using that too in my search, and it was still difficult.
The best I could do was post this excerpt, then try to piece the basics together. If you read the following, and consider these energies to be Conjunct the mystical Planet of Neptune in your Natal, then it should heighten your mystical side, make you a very gentle and understanding parent, that type of thing.
It might heighten your dream life, make you very creative, and very compassionate. Depending on other energies in your Chart, if it continues to emphasize the same theme, you might even be a bit of a mystic. You might think of yourself as one, or it may be others are picking up on that.
It can also cause you to be fooled, if there aren't any other influences in your Chart to help balance out reality.
How do you think this compares to how you are experiencing this Conjunction? I think it's a very interesting Aspect and would love to learn more as well ...
It's also possible reading interpretations on a Natal "Neptune in the 4th House" as well as "4th House Cusp in Pisces" may include more clues.
"The IC is typically described as representing our family history and psychological roots. The ancient Greeks considered the IC to be the home of the underworld and in psychological astrology the IC usually represents the nurturing parent - typically the mother, but not always. Sometimes the IC represents the grandmother if the parents were absent, and the father can also be present there if he was the parent that did the nurturing in the home.
From a transformational perspective, the Imum Coeli is the midnight of the soul. It shows the psychological legacy from our parents and ancestors that submerges in the unconscious until activated, usually by transit of a planet to that point. This is the point at which we enter the underworld of our own internal psyche, turning inward to meet the essence of who we are in this lifetime.
There is a certain amount of karma and destiny inherent in the cardinal points or "angles" (ascendant/descendant, Midheaven/Nadir) and transits to angles are usually life-changing events. The nadir is where we turn inward for self-examination, where we settle with ourselves and become aware of what lies within us. Our hidden fears, desires, dreams, parts of ourselves that have become lost - all lie at the IC waiting to be discovered. Until we are able to embrace and reclaim these parts of ourselves we cannot manifest our highest aspirations as shown by the Midheaven. Therefore, the IC is really the foundation of the personality and of the chart and the key to unlocking our personal evolution.
