Sorry, I didn't think it was a copyright violation. Feel free to delete all three, the photo is not important.

The point was:

Titanic is full of Neptunian themes, both literally (shipwreck, the ocean) and conceptually (idealism in lieu of practical reality). Jack and Rose are romantic and easy to idealize simply because romantic tragedy prevented them and us from seeing the inevitable tragedy (from an hyper idealist's perspective) of a life of mundane squabbles and dirty dishes.

Rose seemingly chooses the practical path of survival, but ultimately she has to engage in romantic folly (throwing the diamond necklace into the ocean) to maintain her connection with the romantic idealism that defined her story with, and love for, Jack.

A Neptunian person can't just turn it off and behave realistically just because someone says it makes more sense too. In fact, the greater the practical cost of a decision, the greater the sacrifice, the deeper the sense of meaning derived from the symbolic act of choosing an ideal over the real.

Like all forces, this is a two edged sword. Sometimes it be can be self destructive, sometimes it can teach profound lessons about connecting deeply. Sometimes both at the same time.
