Excellent day to initiate or work on an endeavor. At this time people will have just the right combination of energy and patience to get done what needs to be accomplished. Work may go more smoothly and may lead to success. Training for any physical activities will go well today too. Also this is a good time for working with machinery or doing any work that may entail some risk. Mars and Saturn get the job done,efficiently and with an expertise and determination that can be most powerful and produce impressive results.
Neptune gives insight and Mercury understanding, so combined they lift the veil to the other side and allow communication across different dimensions. Borders dissolve under this aspect.
This is not the time for dealing with facts, figures, or detailed work as Neptune confuses things on the material plane. This combination can cause mishaps and misunderstandings when dealing with everyday communications, interactions or financial matters. Missed calls and misplaced messages are common so try to give others the benefit of the doubt in these matters.
If you hear any incredible news or gossip it is best to wait and see if it’s really true before acting upon it. Beware of scandals, lies, deceptions and scam artists as they will be very active this week.
How strongly this will affect you on a personal level depends upon how this square interacts with your natal chart. Mercury square Neptune can give wonderful abilities in music, art, psychology, and mysticism. It also allows a person to use these talents in constructive ways as squares can be very productive (or destructive if you are unaware of it’s influence.)
Emotions flow more readily and feelings can be easily hurt. You may send or receive and email or text and take it the wrong way. It is important to be very clear in all communications, perhaps making a direct phone call instead and double-checking any work emails to avoid getting into trouble.
You may find your most productive work will be done in solitude (as Neptune is associated with the 12th house of isolation). Be aware of any *signs* or unusual events that may be the result of influences from the other side.
Neptune rules the ocean, water and the feet. Water wears down and dissolves matter. This aspect can result in a loss of some kind. Neptune teaches us not to become attached to samsara or material world that we live in. Buddhism teaches us that this world is just an illusion after all. What we think of as solid and permanent, really isn’t.
Neptune also rules viruses, drugs and alcohol. Being careful with any prescriptions and avoiding intoxicants is important now.
Sacrifice is also a Neptune keyword, so volunteer work and helping the less fortunate will also benefit you in a difficult Neptune transit.
While Neptune can cause drug addiction, the positive side of Neptune (spirituality) can help a person overcome these problems.
The Serenity prayer is a perfect example of Mercury and Neptune:
God grant me the Serenity
to accept the things I
Courage to change the
things I can and
Wisdom to know the
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a
time; Accepting hardship
as the pathway to peace;
Taking, as He did, this
sinful world as it is, not
as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make
all things right if I
surrender to His will;
That I may be reasonably
happy in this life, and
supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.
Aquarius is a rebellious sign as it is co-ruled by Uranus (traditionally ruled by Saturn) so revolutions, technology, ‘geeky’ organizations will be more influential now and may earn more money. This is the time to enjoy being with groups and friends as they will lead to personal satisfaction and increased earning capacity.
Romantic liaisons may be more unusual, happen suddenly/unexpectedly and be of a more friendly nature than usual. This is the classic ‘friend becoming a partner’ type of influence that Venus will have now. Long distant relationships go well now as well as partnerships which give each other plenty of space. Unusual romantic experiences may occur now as partners may choose to express their love in unusual ways.
This may be a time of some young women protesting or acting in a shocking manner. Young women may become news stories for something new, unusual or genius.
There may be disruptions or unexpected events in relationships. People may suddenly break-up without any warning or forethought. Or partners may show their love in an unconventional or surprising way. There may also be some surprises with finances or from banks.
There may be sudden fluctuations with money or the stock market. Unusual or taboo relationships or social interactions may occur today. Surprises with art or in socializing.
This is a perfect day for an activity where people will want to experience intensity!
Mars and Pluto may also motivate some to burn the midnight oil on some work project which may lead to success. If you find yourself compelled to work on a pet project, just go with the flow and you may accomplish more at this time than for the rest of the year.
Find healthy outlets for rambunctious animals or children to safely burn off the excess energy that they may have now. Be aware that any activities or competitions may become more intense and possibly secretive.
