On June 5th, Mercury and Gemini will square off with Neptune in Pisces. Just a heads up, this is going to be some pretty tough energy to work with. There will be a lot of confusion surrounding facts and perception. What we think we can trust in terms of information may not be necessarily so. If you have the opportunity to just chill on this day, it would probably serve you best to do so. Continue to read on to find out more about how you can navigate the Mercury in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces aspect.
Mercury in Gemini Square Neptune in Pisces
When Mercury squares Neptune, no matter which signs both planets are transiting, there is usually an issue about facts and how they are perceived. Mercury, especially since it is in Gemini, seeks to gather information. It goes from place to place seeking out information from various sources in its desire to know more. However, with Mercury in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces, there’s something off about the information that we are presented. That square to Neptune elicits issues with perception. In fact, what we may think of as being factual may not be the case at all. Neptune puts a fog over things, and it requires the ability to feel one’s way through in order to understand. Using the mind which is ruled by Mercury won’t work right now. The mind is not as clear enough for it to be able to come to a logical conclusion. Thus, it is going to be very important to be careful about the type of information that we consume at this time.
When Facts Aren’t What They Seem
Likewise, Mercury in Gemini enjoys some good verbal banter. Sometimes this verbal banter can lead to double talk or gossip. With the square to Neptune, the information that we are hearing may not be truthful. We would all be wise at this time to refrain from talking about others or sharing information about others because what we are sharing may not be honest. Again, Mercury is also in retrograde motion so what is shared during this very tense time between could result in some issues later on when Mercury finally moves forward. It’s one of those energies where Mercury in Gemini says I have all the facts while Neptune in Pisces resonates with the saying, “the man who thinks he knows something finds he knows nothing at all.” To be on the safe side, it may just be best to keep what you know to yourself at this time since what you know may not really be what you think you know at all.
Mental Confusion & Brain Fog
With the Mercury in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces aspect, there is going to be a lot of mental confusion that will result in an altered perception. Due to this aspect, Mercury is not its usual self. It does not possess the usual sharp, agile mind that Mercury is known for. Neptune clouds the mind making it difficult to think clearly. This is a time where what we think we know, we really don’t know. In fact, many people may feel as if they can’t think straight! One of the best ways to put this aspect in relational terms is the idea of brain fog. It’s as if we want to think and the wheels in our head are turning, but there’s just this “something” keeping us from being mentally adept.
The Ability to “Tune In” for Understanding
So, what do you do when your mind isn’t really functioning at its best? Well, this is where harnessing the energy of Neptune is important. When someone presents us with facts, there’s this idea that facts are right because they have been scientifically proven via logic. However, have you ever encountered a situation where someone says something factual, but it just doesn’t feel right? This is the energy of Mercury Square Neptune. This could happen for a variety of reasons. For example, let’s say Mercury is presenting facts, but the facts have been augmented to achieve a particular result. Neptune comes along and attempts to interpret the facts, but can’t because it just doesn’t make sense. It doesn’t resonate. It just doesn’t FEEL RIGHT…remember Neptune/Pisces operates via emotions. A perfect example of this is when a person looks good on paper and everything, but there is just this feeling that something is off. This is a feeling that goes beyond the facts that are displayed before us.
With Neptune energy, it is going to be very important to tune into our intuition. This is the realm of Neptune and often people have an issue with tuning in because they’re very left-brain heavy which is traditionally ruled by the more logical signs such as Gemini. If we should be presented with facts or information at this time, it’s very important that we pull back and check in with our intuition to determine whether or not what we are being presented is what it appears to be. The ability to “tune in” goes beyond the left-brained, logical experience of Mercury in Gemini. Intuition is unseen and not verifiable through concrete facts. It’s the “inner knowing” that guides us, and it will be the greatest asset in shifting through information at this time.
Making the Most of This Tense Energy
So, what is the best way to deal with Mercury in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces, to be honest…don’t…unless of course, you have a good connection with your intuition. This is not a good time to get caught up in information and facts because everything isn’t what it seems. We could be thinking that we have all the details at our disposal and with Mercury being retrograde alongside the square to Neptune in Pisces, we don’t. There is something that is off, and it’s important to know that no matter how much information we have there are times when facts aren’t very factual at all.
If possible, it’s best to just lay back and enjoy the Neptunian energy at this time. Relax and chill. Don’t press anything…specifically when it comes to facts and data. When it’s time to move forward with information and facts, we will have the opportunity to do so. The Mercury square to Neptune in Pisces suggests we wait for the fog to lift from information at this time. Instead of trying to collect information and hold the intellect as supreme at this time perhaps, it’s just best to lay back and enjoy art, music, film, and getting in touch with our spiritual selves. In fact, this is a great time to strengthen our intuitive awareness.
Also, it’s okay to not talk all the time. It’s okay not to have all the answers. It’s okay to back away from socializing especially if we think we may get ourselves in trouble where words come back to haunt us later on. Some of us may even choose to isolate because we want to stay away from the confusion. This is a choice, not a mandate. Remember, now is not the time to act on anything that we may think is factual, because more than likely those facts that we are being presented with aren’t what they appear to be.
