Mercury-Neptune Conjunction - Fog Machine

"Everything from the little house was in the wagon, except the beds and tables and chairs. They did not need to take these, because Pa could always make new ones."

— Laura Ingalls Wilder

Mercury returns to conjunct Neptune this week. The strength and duration of the Mercury-Neptune conjunction is intensified by Mercury's station and turnaround before resuming direct motion on Thursday. The intellectual fog bank is thick, producing significant confusion but also offering the potential for powerful inspiration. Our mission over the past few weeks under the retrograde Mercury has been to review our past and jettison the baggage that has weighed us down. Once we have processed our past, we can prepare for a new beginning. Last week's Spring Equinox was muted by the strong Neptunian influence and the Mercury-Neptune conjunction under a retrograde Mercury. We continue to find shadowy and confusing distractions this week that keep us from making the fresh start that we are looking for. Family and community connections are extremely important here. However, we may discover new blind spots from our reliance on these connections. There are significant vulnerabilities to any rhetoric which is intended to 'divide and conquer' — tempting us to separate ourselves from others. We may be dealing with vague suspicions or unrealistic expectations, leaving us with less faith in those who we rely on for support. In fact, these suspicions and expectations are likely to be symptoms of any remaining blind spots that we need to deal with before we can gain the necessary perspective to begin to chart a new course forward.

Sunday's confusion is particularly disorienting. The Scorpio Moon has us trying look deep into the abyss, plumbing the depths of understanding but possibly only discovering shadowy suspicion. We'll do better focusing on family and community connections on Monday. Self-interested pursuits are likely to keep us disconnected, distracted and highly vulnerable to deception. Venus arrives in Pisces on Tuesday, softening suspicion a bit and promoting more compassionate responses. It is important to seek ways to connect our vague ideas and inspiration with concrete meaning. The Spring energy finally begins to be released on Wednesday but we need to continue to unwind unrealistic expectations of others, while also cultivating connection and communication. Mercury turns direct on Thursday but it's clear we don't yet have all the tools we need to truly make a fresh start. There is increased self-confidence on Friday but also increased sensitivity to failure or being rebuffed. By Saturday, our self-confidence may have gotten us into a bit of trouble. We need to stay objective and quickly admit any mistakes we've made. Mars arrives in Gemini on Saturday night, opening doors of communication so that we can begin to blow away the fog bank that we've been living in this month.
