Mercury Opposite Neptune
With Mercury opposite Neptune, your imagination has full reign in this surreal and expansive expression of the mind. Insightfully and creatively inspired, you possess a vast sea of all thoughts and feelings as you tap into the collective unconscious and receive psychic insights. Because of this mental osmosis, you’re not sure whether it’s your mind doing the thinking as certain thoughts or ideas seem to come from ‘somewhere else,’ so you may doubt their authenticity.
The subconscious and the mind come together and it feels like you’re ‘tuned out’ from reality. At times you lose track of your train of thought and your mind may take on a vagueness; you could suffer from misunderstandings, confusion, and disorder around the communication area. The mundane matters of life could be a struggle to organize when your perceptions feel distorted, unusual and just strange. It can be hard to verbalize such vast feelings, so it would be ideal for you to write some poetry, creative form of writing, or another form of inspiring work; learn to be introspective and just go with the flow. Otherwise, you might find yourself drunk on Lethe, and lost in the river of forgetfulness. Thinking in pictures is something of a gift you have and it’s due to your thinking being wholly open and receptive to the great symbolic world.
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, and this watery planet afflicts you with unbearable sensitivity in the area of the intellect. It can make your mental faculties terribly drawn to this introverted world, and far away from external reality. The intellect is already one of the most sensitive instruments in the environment. But when Mercury is opposite to Neptune the floodgates open and the mind is taken everywhere. Overall, you have a receptiveness, dreaminess and sympathetic style of thought that is unparalleled.
