Mercury sextile Neptune: Let your Imagination Run Wild

Mercury at 29 degrees Sagittarius forms a sextile to Neptune at 29 degrees Aquarius at 7:16 am PT.

This is a day better spent on spiritual or creative pursuits than on anything requiring mental discipline, which will be in short supply. We’ll be drawn more toward the unseen side of life, and at times like these, it’s important to remember to feed our souls.

Trying to keep our feet on the ground in anything other than a physical sense is pretty much a lost cause.

When we find our minds wandering, we can bring them gently back to the present. But realize that just about everyone is more suggestible, sensitive and dreamy than usual.

Miscommunications can easily occur, so be sure to speak in complete sentences so everyone else knows exactly what you’re talking about. Instead of getting frustrated with your lack of focus, it’s better to go with the flow and experience the integration of creativity, imagination and spirituality that can occur under this subtle, intuitive energy.

If you have Mercury sextile Neptune as a natal aspect:

You have a fortunate ability to be able to tap into your dreams and yet not be overwhelmed by them. There is so much information available in dreams, images, symbols, and mythology, and you are an expert at finding meanings and connections among them all.

You perceive subtlety and enjoy simply observing it. Highly imaginative and mentally creative, you have the ability to weave together stories, poems, myths, prayers, and all sorts of disparate ideas, creating work and art that are mystical and magical. Your best forms of communication are through creative images and creative writing.

You are not to be taken literally, for you speak in metaphors. You embellish your retelling of events and make up tales; in fact, you’d make a fine storyteller. The sooner you realize that this is where your mental, logical, and intuitive strengths lie, the happier you’ll be.

Communication through normal channels is of course necessary but you perceive the possibilities of communication on a much deeper level, a soul connection that can only be established and maintained through subtle and creative means. These are the friendships that feed you most, and likewise for them.
