Mercury Conjunct Neptune

Mercury Conjunct Neptune Natal

Neptune brings an other-worldly component to the thought processes that can greatly enhance the ability for idealism, imagination, and fantasy. If you have this aspect in your natal chart, you may be able to see outside your culture and your time with clarity, taking others on dream-like journeys to far-away lands or times. Conversely, Neptune can overwhelm you with a dangerous sense of being somehow strange and a need to hide this from others. There can be a multi-generational and or cross-cultural component to these irrational fears where the thought patterns of ancestors who were victims may still be playing out, and the lack of proper context for them may be confusing or bewildering. In either case, a clearer sense of personal, social, cultural, and historical boundaries is necessary and helpful for you to navigate day-to-day experience.

Mercury Conjunct Neptune Transit

There are different kinds of conjunctions transit Mercury can make with natal Neptune. During normal direct motion (not near a station) transit, Mercury makes quick one-hit conjunctions to natal Neptune that happen yearly and represent an opportunity for imagination, fantasy, or artistic expression to enter the daily life and provide insight into generational or cultural themes. Sometimes, direct Mercury makes close conjunctions (within a few degrees) to natal Neptune, while also conjunct the transiting sun, only at much longer thirteen-year intervals. These rarer conjunctions represent opportunities for social or cultural events that may offer insight into the ways that generational or cultural forces and ideals shape your world and additional ability to become a personal exemplar of these. The retrograde conjunctions from transit Mercury to natal Neptune will occur in groups of three (with a direct conjunction before and after) only every six to seven years, or more often, thirteen years apart. These are opportunities for major insights and adjustments into the ways that imagination, fantasy, or artistic expression affect your inner life. A greater understanding of the personal ideals and the way they are either serving or frustrating is also possible.
