"Lies lies lies yeah (they’re gonna get you)
Lies lies lies yeah (they won’t forget you)"
-- Thompson Twins
They say that loose lips sink ships, and that aphorism is truer than ever when sneaky Mercury squares flaky Neptune on Mother’s Day. This is one of those instances when you should avoid saying anything unless you have something nice to say. And if someone tempts you with gossip about a mutual friend or family member, decline to participate unless you’re willing to experience the painful boomerang of bad karma.

Mercury rules communication, and when it’s in its home sign of Gemini, trickster tendencies are magnified. When this chatty planet is poised in the sign of its rulership, we’re all more loquacious. It’s a great time to write longhand in your journal, or to tweet, text and blog. Don’t be surprised if you crave information and feel more distracted than usual. However, that’s not the whole story with this aspect …
Neptune dictates our dreams and holds sway over our fantasy life. This reality-averse planet’s domain is the astral realm. It also rules the places in our waking life where things aren’t exactly as they seem. As glamorous as Neptune can make us feel, it’s also the planet of deception, and trusting it blindly is not the best idea. The planet of pink fog is currently in the sign of its rulership: Pisces.
When Mercury makes a hard angle to Neptune on May 11, expect to feel a healthy dose of mental confusion. The upside is that this is a dreamy and poetic influence. The downside is that you might believe everything you hear. Remember to be a bit of a skeptic -- especially when it comes to grand promises.
If you’re celebrating Mother’s Day with your family, note that everyone might want to get on the gossip bandwagon. Gently dissuade them from nattering on about other people by employing the healthier vibration of Neptune: compassion. Tattletales and blabbermouths may be busy this weekend, but you can choose to take the high road.
