Nazaudy, a spark in your curious mind

Mercury square Neptune

Mercury square Neptune can have a strange effect on your mind. You see and sense the world through a different lens than anyone else, not the actual or factual world. This distorting influence of Neptune can harm 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 your 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 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 significantly for regular 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 you must 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 include becoming involved in lies, fraud or scandals, conspiracy theories, cults, or abusing drugs and alcohol.

These people change their opinions often and unexpectedly. When they get in trouble they do not hesitate to use lies or deceive themselves or others. These people do not express themselves very well and they tend to be dreamers. In order to grow they need to have creative people around them. They often close themselves in their own fantasy word and they do not have a very good short-term memory. They are aware of their special abilities but they are not always able to use them. Depending on other aspects, other people may take advantage of them. Others may find it hard to deal with their chaotic thinking and lack of order. People with the Mercury square Neptune aspect are compassionate and intuitive dreamers.

It may be difficult to separate thoughts from emotions or the personal content from that belonging to others, but this is precisely what is most needed.

Indulging in flights of fancy is fine, but it is necessary to keep from identifying with all but the most personal of dreams. If you have this aspect in your natal chart, you may be a natural artist and definitely a dreamer, meaning that you need time to just sit and contemplate or be alone in nature. At the same time, healthy routines of hygiene and pragmatic activity should be adhered to in order to keep grounded.

They also have a fascinating ability to excel as creatives. These individuals are incredible writers, musicians, and artists. They also make for great magicians, entertainers, and tricksters. Unfortunately, being an escapist has its drawbacks. In a natal chart, Mercury Neptune square says the person will be haunted by big expectations for their entire life. They also have trouble focusing on the task at hand and taking and receiving instructions is difficult. They are very likely to exaggerate their stories to sound better or more enjoyable than they really were.

At first, they will consciously notice that they are telling little lies. Over time, though, Mercury square Neptune people will believe their own embellishments. If this character flaw isn’t immediately worked on, they will begin falling down a slippery slope that leads them to become persuasive and eventually downright manipulative. They have to catch the lies and correct themselves consciously, or they will tell larger and larger lies, finally pushing those they love away and losing all of their credibility.

Succeeding at Work as a Mercury Square Neptune. You must also learn how to create, set, and follow routines for yourself. This will help you better manage your reality. Your thinking is constantly distorted, at least a little, at all times. Find a trusted confidant, mentor, or even a lawyer to look over all of your business and legal matters. Your misinterpretations can cause many issues for you. Learn how to control and ground your mind on command, so you can work more effectively. Keep a journal or agenda, take pictures, or record conversations. Find what works for you, and then use that tool relentlessly. If it’s possible, find a career that works with your gifts, not against them. Become a fantasy writer, stand-up comedian, artist, photographer, or musician. If those positions aren’t an option for you, find a job that encourages multitasking. Use your intuition and ability to read others as journalists, investigators, counsellors, hypnotists, meditation coaches, or diplomats. Or use your knowledge to predict future events by working as a financial investor, planner, or marketer. You will be misunderstood a lot. When you are misunderstood over and over, you become prone to anxiety and crippling insecurities. You are naturally sensitive, so others’ irritation with you and their criticism and rejection hurt you more than they do the average person. Your go-to coping mechanism is hiding away in your mind, but doing this will only perpetuate the cycle. Find other like-minded, free-spirited individuals and find refuge in their friendships. Usually, these friends are spiritual and artistic, so use your hobbies as a means to forge your friendships.
