Mercury opposite Neptune is a great aspect for letting the imagination have free reign. Indeed, this is a surreal imaginative and expansion expression. The individual is insightful and creatively inspired, with a vast sea of all thoughts and feelings. Because of this mental osmosis, they are not sure whether it’s your mind doing the thinking as certain thoughts or ideas seem to come from ‘somewhere else,’ they doubt their authenticity.
Actually, they lose track of your train of thought many times. The mind takes on a vagueness and subliminal tone and they must be careful not to get derailed. The type may suffer from plenty of misunderstandings, confusion, and disorder around the communication areas. It may reveal itself through the mundane matters of life. Moreover, it could be a feeling of mental fatigue and tiredness that takes a hold. Perceptions feel distorted, unusual and just strange. Whatever the case, the mental nature and the subconscious come together receiving psychic insights, and also feeling ‘tuned out’ from reality.
Thinking in pictures is something of a gift got these kinds of people. Also, being in touch with the Collective Unconscious. The mind is wholly open and receptive. It can be hard to verbalise feelings. At times, it would be ideal for them to write some poetry, learn to be introspective and just go with the flow. Otherwise, they might find themselves drunk on Lethe, and lost in the river of forgetfulness. Neptune tends to put the mind into a deep sleep, pulling it into the deeper layers of the unconscious. Foremost, Neptune is the planet of extreme hypersensitivity. In fact, this watery planet afflicts us with unbearable sensitivity. It can make anybody feel transparent and terribly drawn to this introverted world, away from external reality.
Many people influenced by Neptune will often feel more sensitive, gentle and perceptive than the average person. Mercury is our trickster, shapeshifter and ever changeable. As it rules the mind, this type may feel as if their mentality is swayed by the feelings and thoughts of others. Plus, as it rules the intellect, it is already one of the most sensitive instruments to the environment. When Mercury is opposite Neptune the floodgates open and the mind is taken everywhere. The individual may become extremely sensitised to the words of others. A fluid-like mentality shows a greater need for an anchor. Overall, though, they possess a receptiveness, dreaminess and sympathetic style of thought that is unparalleled. The details of life feel boring and their cerebral sensitivity makes them feel disturbed by the opinions of others.
