The elusive formula and meta lost thoughts that are, drumroll, found in Mercury-Neptune’s evasive domain. Info washes over the native in oceans and the mind splashes about in the imagination. It’s hard to come back to reality and onto the shore. Sometimes, though, it’s like Neptune takes a giant sponge and erases everything.
