After midnight, Mercury in Gemini squares off with Neptune in Pisces, distorting perception.

The opinions or convictions we cling to are doomed to fall apart with the slightest bit of scrutiny. Embarrassment or insecurity might arise due to misunderstanding.

Although this transit can be harnessed to improve rapport with loved ones, personal biases can also greatly impede our judgment. Expect making objective assessments to be a challenge. However, the next two weeks will be ideal for building bridges and bonds.
