Neptune gives insight and Mercury understanding, so combined they lift the veil to the other side and allow communication across different dimensions. Intellectual borders dissolve under this aspect.
However, this is not the week for dealing with facts, figures, or detailed work as Neptune tends to muddle things on the material plane. This combination can cause some scandals 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 lies, deceptions, fake news, 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 trine interacts with your natal chart. Mercury trine Neptune can give wonderful experiences with music, art, psychology, and mysticism. It also allows a person to use these talents in constructive ways as trines can be unstoppable flow of energy (which can be destructive if you are unaware of it’s influence.)
Although paranormal abilities may manifest more strongly, the flip side to psychic is over-sensitive. This can cause emotions to 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. Like a worn out rug from many people walking on it or sugar dissolving in a glass of water. 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 (Neptune). 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. Beware of a tendency to want to escape reality with alcohol or other indulgences. Also a general feeling of apathy or laziness may also be strong now.
Sacrifice is also a Neptune keyword, so volunteer work and helping the less fortunate may benefit you as well as others.
While Neptune can cause drug addiction, the positive side of Neptune (spirituality) can help a person. This is a positive time to practice meditation a/o spirituality. Also at this time you may have more appreciation for poetry, music, art, film, and photography.
If you have been meaning to write a letter about something important (good or bad) writing it now and sending it out will ensure that is has the most powerful impact possible.
Mediums and psychics may be getting more or better messages than usual. This is an excellent time for communicating with the other side, even if you don’t normally get messages from the other side, you may get a sign or some sort of message today.
This is also a good time to work on joint finances, bills, taxes, estates as well as any secretive matters. You may receive the alimony, insurance or other money you were owed.
This is also a good time for mystery writing, intense artwork, living wills, psychology, occult, diet, sex, health matters, cleanses, power, powerful speaking/writing of all kinds.
This is a good day to destroy any junk mail or paperwork that needs to be shred. Purging information out of your life that is no longer relevant is a positive way to use this energy.
What you say and write today may affect a large number of people and potentially have a profound impact on your life. As with all transiting aspects, it depends on each individual’s chart how strongly a particular planetary aspect will affect them.
With Venus forming a positive aspect to Saturn, this may result in obtaining some stability in love and financial matters. Initiating a creative project will have solid results. Creating permanence in romantic and creative areas of life are favored today.
Benefits through older people, farms, coal, public buildings, state officials,or antiques. This is a good day to have an heirloom appraised. This is also a positive time to organize or attend to money matters. Doing something constructive which lays down the rules with children in a loving way, could be very successful now and last long-term.
Beautifying an old place or object may have some outstanding results. Painting, sculpture, and interior decorating are also favored under this aspect. Donations to charities will help more than usual today.
