Something about flights of fancy

Sunday 10 November

Moon in Aquarius

Mercury Direct

Mercury trine Neptune

When Mercury is in water signs, sensitivity is heightened.

When Mercury is in easy aspect to Neptune, creative imagination is stimulated.

When Mercury is in Scorpio, you speak your truth- from the soul.

Put all of this together and we have the mood for the next few days.

Here’s how it will pan out.

  • In just under an hour, Mercury will trine Neptune.
  • In just under a day, Mercury will turn direct.
  • In just on two days, Mercury will trine Neptune again.
  • In just under three days, the Sun will trine Jupiter.
  • In just under four days, Neptune will turn direct.

That’s one watery week we have ahead of us.

We’ll talk more about Sun trine Jupiter, and Neptune direct over the next few days, but for now it’s all about Mercury.

Mercury retrograde operates similarly to Mercury in Pisces- with imagination, fantasy and a resolute ability to pretend that reality and practicality are for other people.

Over the next couple of days, you’ll be sensitive to non verbal cues in a way that you’re not usually- even the most subtle of subtle non verbal cues. You’ll also be more prone to flights of fancy, day dreams, talking about the way that things should be rather than the way things are.

If you’re Piscean, this energy will feel a little immersing yourself into a warm, tropical sea, only to emerge to a deckchair and coconut. Somewhere like in these pictures…which were taken at Ko Khai in Thailand, in case you’re interested. Sure, this is my particular fantasy, but you get the idea.

If you’re a water Mercury, you’re used to communicating with sensitivity and sympathy, so you’ll get this too.

If your chart (and Mercury) is heavy with air, fire or earth practicality, you’ll find the next few days tough going.

My advice? Go with it.

Go with the fantasies, go with the dreams and let your mind wander a little- everyone needs to escape from the real world every so often. The other thing is, escaping from disciplined thought patterns isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Just like when you find something just as you stopped looking for it, often creative solutions to existing problems will pop into your head when you least expect them to. If you don’t overthink it, your intuition will guide you through.

Don’t worry about not being able to find your way back to reality- this is a trine, so the departure will not be a lengthy one. The energy will peak on Tuesday, when the Moon is in Pisces. Besides, this is Scorpio that we’re talking about, and the Scorpio bullshit metre is the best in the business. You might feel deluded, but deep down, you know the difference between fact and fiction.

My only warning? Jot down the ideas as they come into your head, but avoid the temptation to act on them until after the transit is done.
