Mercury Square Neptune 29 May 2019

Mercury Square Neptune TransitMercury square Neptune natal can have a strange effect on your mind. You see and sense the world through a different lens than anyone else, not the real or factual world. This distorting influence of Neptune can have an adverse effect on your relationships. You can misunderstand others and they can misunderstand you.

Yet you can also be a master of illusion and find great ways to express you ideas. Some will excel as tricksters or magicians, some as entertainers on the stage or screen, and some as science fiction writers. Music, art and poetry are also excellent ways to show off your creative talents and vivid imagination.

Confusion can enter into close relationships if you cannot learn to focus or concentrate on the basics of language. Keeping it simple will help greatly for normal human interaction. At the higher level you do well, but at the ordinary level such as giving and receiving instructions, you will need to develop stricter control over your mind. You may need professional advice when signing contracts or dealing with government and legal matters.

Because you are likely to be misunderstood much of the time, especially when young, you may develop insecurities of a mental or nervous nature. To cope, you may rely even more on your fantasies. You are very sensitive to criticism or rejection so it is important you try to find other spiritual or artistic types to hang around.

It is also vitally important that you do not do anything which will exacerbate your sensitivities. These would include becoming involved in lies, fraud or scandals, conspiracy theories, cults, or abusing drugs and alcohol.

Mercury Square Neptune Transit

Mercury square Neptune transit distorts your thinking which can confuse and complicate discussions and business dealings. Even giving or receiving instructions can suffer from lack of clarity and misinterpretation. If you must deal with any important business, government or legal matters, seek professional advice or help from a trusted friend.

When dealing with family and friends, try to stick to the basics of communication. Your imagination and potential for deception can lead to sticky situations. This would only increase the level of confusion and insecurity that this transit brings. You really must avoid treachery and scandal. Even little white lies could lead to major embarrassment or the need for more convoluted cover ups.

You are more susceptible to believing conspiracy theories or strange and extreme spiritual and religious views. You need to protect yourself against loan sharks or pushy sales people. Psychic vampires may find holes in your aura so stick to more suitable activities for this transit, like music, dance, poetry or creative writing. Drugs and alcohol are a big no-no.

  1. Once again, Jamie, you’ve unearthed a complex, sophisticated aspect. Have got this in my natal and it is spot on. Thanks-

    • A psychic vampire is someone who sucks all your positive energy and leaves you feeling weak or depressed. They often do this by discussing horrible subjects of a personal nature like sexual abuse and such things.

      • I have this aspect in my chart and my whole life I’ve had these “psychic vampires” getting me down. Being quite a sympathetic person, they’ve been blood thirsty with me! I had to get rid of one of these friends recently. She just made me feel down every time I saw her. I’ve been making quite a few comments on the website recently, because I’m learning deeper into my natal chart. It can be a bit painful, facing yourself with the truth about certain aspects in your natal chart (like Venus Square Saturn), but it’s a necessary reality one has to deal with if we want to heal, change and grow.

      • I’m realizing every time I talk to my sister on the phone I feel completely depleted/ depressed after. It’s tricky becs. we are quite close, but live far apart, so phone conversations are how we connect. But there is always…I emphasize always…a tragedy she tells me abt. Most frequently it’s abt. a funeral or some one who’s dying from some awful disease. Takes me hrs, sometimes days, to recoup. Have decided to call maybe once every 3-4 wks. instd. of weekly. Astrologically, I’ve got Neptune conj. my ASC and a 12th Hs. Moon, so I soak everything up. Hard, though, to pull back when vampire is someone you love. Thank you for confirming my experience. i’ve got Merc. sq. my Neptune tomorrow 😀

  2. Jamie, I have Mercury sq a retro Neptune in my natal and Neptune is in Sagittarius 11′ 13′..(where Mars is retro) and with this square Im afraid..from what I don’t know… but this all sounds ominous to me… Does this configuration implies difficulties ahead or harsh lessons?
    Not necessarily or depending on other configurations in the chart?
    Many thanks, Coliberi

    • Not so much lessons as danger of deception so take no risks with negotiations or contracts. Mars Rx on your Neptune suggests extra care with medications, drugs, and square Mercury travelling.

  3. I AM TRYING HARD. BUT SOOOO MUCH IRRITATING TO CONTROL IT. I NEED SOOO MUCH MENTAL POWER TO AVOID IT. ITS JUST FEEL ME FROM ‘OCTOBER’ MID, SUDDENLY, MANY RELATIONS WEAR MUSK ON FACE FROM PAST OF MY LIFE AND ITS JUST OFF IN ONE TIME. ALL R BEHAVING LIKE CRUEL PEOPLES. THEY EVEN DON’T HAVE TIME TO READ ABOUT WHAT THIS EXTRA POWERS CAN DO IN OUR LIFE. EVEN FOR ME IT IS SOOOO MUCH HARD TO TACKLE IT. HOW MANY MORE TIME WE R GOING TO FACE IT? I AM SOOO MUCH DISTURBED THIS DAYS.

  4. Donald Trumps behavior illustrates a Mercury square Neptune condition: He creates his own reality or in other words lives in a dream world with an unbalanced mind. A very dangerous situation for America as a fool who is delusional and in a powerful position poses a danger for the whole world. He will be faced with more pressures and might just lose it completely. Mercury square Neptune I find always poses an irrational or insane min along with lying.

  5. Here’s one I’m having difficulty with & no one seems to be able to definitively answer. I’ve lost something incredibly important. It would place in the 2nd house. I have Neptune conjunct Chiron in the 2nd w/Pisces, however, Mercury square Neptune and Chiron trines Fortuna. The contradiction is difficult to interpret. I’d appreciate any feedback!

  6. I’ve got this one, go figure. The orb is 5°Applying. Ive “calculated” that Neptune is becoming important at this time in my life, and for the next 7 years. My dreams are becoming more complex, with better waking outcomes, ie not nightmares. Mercury is generally weak in my life, the square is between the 4th and 7 house, angular.

    In Tracy Marks book, The Astrology of Self Discovery, she mentions when Neptune transit Squared Mercury, she began to make mistakes calculating charts. She fixed this by using a computer service.

    This is what she says: “Because my creative and Spiritual energies were beginning to awaken, I began to use role playing, dialoguing and visualization techniques in my class. Neptune was transiting my 12th house at the time…and as I became more attuned to its energies. I was also inspired to write my 12th house book.”

    So if you have this Square, either by transit or natal, perhaps look where Neptune is transiting to Cope. With me, I have Neptune transiting the 8th house, With Donald Trump, Neptune is transiting his 7th.

  7. Very interesting aspect, since the transiting Mercury, which went retro in Pieces makes a lot of aspects all over my chart, both harmonious and difficult. Talking about Mercury-Neptune, the transiting Mercury in retrograde in Pieces squares my natal Neptune (which is also retrograde) in Sagittarius at 29°, which is on the cusp of 7th and 8th houses. Moreover transiting Mercury in Pieces conjuncts my natal Black Lilith in Pieces at 29° on the cusp of 10th and 11th houses. Concomitantly the transiting Uranus, which has just entered Taurus (in my 12th house), trines my natal Mercury at 0°(which is retrograde on the cusp of 4th and 5th houses) in Virgo and opposes my Pluto in Scorpio at 0°, which is on the cusp of 5th and 6th houses. From the very beginning of the transit i have felt a lot of mental activity, insecurities, fears, doubts, mostly related to ‘me-others’ relationships, my abilities, my wishes, my feelings, my trust. Everything used to take place in my own head, sometimes without even talking to somebody about it. Sometimes it was hard for me to see the outcome of my own thoughts on a certain situation, then during the night it happened to have dreams, which indicated that there is a solution i am not aware of. I had a lot of fears related to what i want, think, feel, desire and what others want, say, think, feel on the same subject from my life. I spent a lot of mental energy on these topics and then finally i came to the conclusion that if i feel so, this is right for me, if they feel so, it is right for them, and everybody is happy! I decided that my dreams matter, that my feelings matter, that my choices are correct, because my gut was just screaming out there ‘listen to me, listen to me’ and i tried to ignore it, just because somebody else, more experienced, said that they see things differently. I lied to myself and ignored my feelings, which led to a huge a huge inner conflict, distress and irritation. At this moment i also felt a need to escape from these obsessive thoughts through alcohol (i drink just occasional, when being out or celebrating something), while during this time i used to drink a glass or two alone at home and it was very weird for me. But i managed to find the middle ground (just around the time Uranus was in the last degree of Aries and it started to challenge my Pluto and Mercury went stationary and then retro) and discerned that if i feel something i will not ignore it, and if somebody feels somehow different on the same subject, i will not talk them out of it. It is so difficult to deal with, but after i set boundaries, i felt this transit as a blessing. Because now i can attune to some energies that i couldn’t have attuned in a state of stressed mind and alcohol escapism finished as well, although the transit hasn’t finished yet. I am not an astrologer, i am an amateur.

  8. I have seen in natal charts, again and again, that the traditional interpretation of

  9. of Mercury square Neptune being an indication of lies misses the mark widely. I know it to indicate instead persons who are wrongly assumed/believed to be lying. There is a real element of the neptunian victim/victimizing with this aspect as well.

    • And, if/when Pluto or the eighth house is involved, there is a likelihood of a witch hunt phenomenon.

      Jamie’s description, especially the notes about of being misunderstood, is very accurate. I was glad that he provides a nuanced and thoughtful analysis of this aspect.

      Too often, it is dangerously dispensed with as being indicative of a liar.

      But I find consistently that Mercury square Neptune is not a reliable marker of dishonesty, and, because to wrongly accuse an innocent person of lying can be devastating to them, I feel compelled to share this caveat with fellow astrology folks.
