July 2, 2022, presents us with a square between two very adaptable and mutable planets and astrology signs Mercury in Gemini squares Neptune in Pisces. This is an energy that wreaks confusion. Mercury rules communication and information and Pisces is nebulous and hard to understand. When these two planets are not playing nice, this can result in difficulties with understanding and relaying information and a mix-up of details. This energy is simply not the best for communicating anything of importance because there’s likely to be some type of misunderstanding on one side or both sides. Likewise, under this energy, it is important to be very mindful of taking words at face value. There’s likely something that is missing from the conversation or the information provided is lacking at best.
When Words Aren’t What They Seem
The energy of Mercury in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces creates a situation where words aren’t always what they seem to be. Mercury in Gemini rules communication and information while Neptune in Pisces connects beyond the limitations of words. Here we have two different energies operating on different planes. Mercury in Gemini operates under the mental and airy energy of logic while Neptune in Pisces operates beyond language into feelings, emotions, and intuitive awareness.Read More »
Hard to Focus on Details
With Mercury square Neptune details get blurred. Whenever another planet touches Neptune, the energy loses a lot of its original meaning. With the square between Mercury in Gemini and Neptune in Pisces, the energy of confusion is enhanced. Brain fog makes processing information difficult, and messages received may be missing vital information.
It’s best to hold off on handling any important details. If dealing with information is a necessity, make sure to go through any paperwork, contracts, information, etc. with a fine-toothed comb because with Mercury square Saturn the information presented is not all that it seems to be.
Sweet Little Lies
The energy of Mercury in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces can produce lies and false information. Whether it is Mercury in Gemini using its quicksilver tongue to share information that is not true or Neptune in Pisces changing language and/or omitting details, there is a propensity for Mercury square Neptune to avoid clarity. This could show up as little white lies, big lies, as well as lying through omission. Just a heads up.
Not in Touch with Reality
One of the effects of Mercury in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces is a tendency to have our heads in the clouds. This can make it difficult to live in reality. Neptune, especially in its home sign of Pisces, can get caught up in daydreaming and being out of touch with its immediate surroundings. This lack of awareness of the immediate environment can cause numerous issues such as being deceived or being the deceiver, and feeling “out of touch.”
Sensitive to Criticism
The Mercury in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces aspect can also make us a bit overly emotional and sensitive to communications from others. We may not want to hear anything that knocks us off our daydreaming clouds. We may not want to incorporate the information, no matter how valid, if it takes us away from our dreamy, idealistic perception. We may not want to hear information that pushes us to deal with our realities. It is important to take note of this tendency under the Mercury square Neptune to be hypersensitive to criticism as a way of avoiding responsibility and accountability as well as escaping our realities.
Using Mercury Square Neptune Beneficially
The Mercury and Neptune square aspect, no matter what signs it occurs, can be quite difficult to deal with because there is always something amiss that we can’t quite grasp. One of the best ways to deal with this energy is to be cognizant that everything isn’t what it appears to be. This is a lesson that Neptune in Pisces energy understands all too well if guidance from intuition is heeded.
Similarly, Mercury in Gemini is very aware that words can be manipulated, so, not all information should automatically be perceived as a fact. Just making the space to understand that perhaps everything that we see and interpret is not necessarily true from the perspective of Mercury in Gemini as well as Neptune in Pisces can really help us avoid being deceived and delusional at this time.
With Mercury in Gemini square Neptune in Pisces, it’s best to just take everything we hear and see with a grain of salt. Not everything that is spoken is true and not everything that is perceived is reality. Sometimes we have to use both logic and intuition to determine whether or not something is more than meets the eye, and that is a great lesson from the Mercury square Neptune.
