Mercury Conjunct Neptune continued
Only because a soul is living in the psychic realms doesn’t mean they are entirely wise or pure, after all. All humans die, but you don’t immediately become a saint or goddess-like when you die; these gifts are earned over numerous lifetimes.
After a person/soul, serious inner work, giving up your base desires and working to improve your character, you don’t just die- leave a spiritual body and become all-knowing; this is not the way it works.
So take all advice from the psychic and material realms with caution; as you age, it’s essential to learn to decipher your own wisdom and trust your own judgements, based on a process of introspection and critical thinking.
When you have natal Mercury conjunct Neptune, it is highly probable when you were younger, you were in tune with imaginary friends and seen things others did not.
You may still have this trait as you get older; note that just as you have sovereignty ( full ownership) over your material world, you also have it over the psychic realms.
Believe in yourself
Do not let a person or spirit take advantage of you; you may shy away from using your extra senses because when you were younger, you were ridiculed by parents, friends, teachers or bullies as a child because of it.
But know your extra senses are your gifts to use and control, find the right people to share your gifts/ talents with.
As you know, in this world, people who are different are often ridiculed, so people shut down their emotional sides, typically by age 30, so they can fit in with the rational, scientific and technological worldview.
Seeking kindred but grounded and aware people is essential when you have Mercury conjunct Neptune; you often have to walk alone for a while to live your truth.
You have to carefully pick your friends, activities, and life goals because being around negativity or adverse conditions for a prolonged period can affect your life progression.
This is why it’s essential to heal and not bury your psychological and emotional wounds.
Self-acceptance is needed to manage this placement, and self-trust, compassion, healing, understanding, control, and love; give yourself the reassurance you need to build your self-esteem.
You must not readily believe anything you hear; fact check, always research and fact check.
Learning critical thinking will help you handle this placement, especially if you have a few squares, oppositions or water and fire aspects in your natal chart.
When you have Neptune conjunct natal mercury, you can infuse the world with uplifting wisdom, especially in the areas of spiritual communion, communication, addiction, psychological and emotional problems once you learn to heal and manage your own emotional and psychological blockages.
You are apt at picking up verbal and non-verbal cues in your environment; you can also have a natural presence of being highly intuned with the unseen and higher truths of life.
Drawing others who seek deeper meanings in life to you, making you highly creative, can make you prone to self-destructive and addictive tendencies due to information overload.
Seek healthy ways to manage your sensitivity like spending time in nature, listening to or creating music or art, dance, act or become an alternative healer.
The shadow of mercury conjunct Neptune
Watch out for manipulating others and being a bit of a slippery character, dream bug but take time and practical actions to bring them into reality.
It’s essential to separate high imagination from logic, and vice versa, do all you can to steady the mind and train it, so there is only ever one clear thought in your mind at any one time.
This takes years, if not a decade or more of training; it can be done; take it slow, don’t beat yourself up when you fall short or get caught in thought loops; after all, to err is to be human.
And as you get a lot of speedy information, it will take time to learn to settle your mind and only receive helpful impressions at least 75-85% of the time.
Learn to hold your tongue as not all things can be received by all people, discern who or who not you can be authentic with, don’t be fake, but as I said, learn to hold your tongue.
I know it’s hard, as you can usually see the best solutions for more people’s problems, but keep quiet if someone shows you they are not ready for them.
Do all you can to still and hold your nerves, eat good food, take regularly but not excessive exercise, do mind focusing activities, do all you can to build concentration.
Learn to control any clairvoyance ability and be honest in all your dealings, especially relationship and business partnerships.
Learn to value but control your imagination and get your subconscious and conscious mind to work together; this is tricky at first but is needed when you have natal Mercury conjunct, Neptune.
Beware of your trait to misjudge and get the wrong idea about situations, information, and people. Avoid jumping to conclusions and check your understanding of something before stating it as truth.
Work and enhance your ability to decipher symbols and suggestions but don’t become obsessive about this work; I know you can get frustrated when others do not understand you.
But if you slow down and think about what you are trying to communicate before saying it, you will create better connections based on harmony and genuine understanding.
Avoid becoming overly delirious and lost in the psychic realms, keep an idea journal, work through them, and finish things before starting something new.
Try not to have more than 3-4 things on the go at once to avoid getting stressed out or giving up because you feel overwhelmed.
Being in tune with the mystical, unseen and higher meanings is good, but you must learn to manage yourself and use logic to make your visions and inspirations known and understood by others.
Avoid becoming an escape artist due to your lack of self-discipline and getting lost in the information; learn to control the background noise and partake in life, don’t avoid it.
Learn to not take others’ criticisms to heart, hear it out, think about it, see if there are any truths in what they said, but don’t beat yourself up if they are, especially if it shows you in a bad light.
All humans have a weakness they need to work on; working on your weak or blind spots becomes strength.
You have promising latent communication talents, and you can use your mind to manifest your highest potential and manage your reality.
Do not become selective about the information you share to avoid the repercussions, stating half-truths always bring, as what’s hidden in the dark, comes to light eventually.
When you have natal Mercury conjunct Neptune, it is crucial to trust your perceptions; by discerning what is real and what is not. You can use your psychic ability to heal yourself and others; you know how to touch your own and others deep inner core positively. Use it.
An afflicted Mercury conjunct Neptune can make you a bit of a cad and low down dirty trickster, know we reap what we sow in life, so yano its up to you have you play your cards in this lifetime.
At times you can just ignore advice, openly or underhandedly, leading you into more hot water. You can become highly secretive, leaving others unable to trust you; this may cause isolation from the very people you want to keep close.
No, it’s never too late to put wrongs right; a leopard can change its cards, but it takes hard work and endurance, avoid living in your own fantasy world.
Becoming neurotic, completely losing all sense of reality and yourself, on the very bad end of the scale you can be prone to psychosis.
So it is vital for you not to meddle in mind-altering substances, especially those with irreversible effects, especially alcohol and weed high in thc, are not your friends.
