The Mercury Opposite Neptune Mood Board

Filed in ASTROLOGY

Nina Simone

Mercury opposite Neptune people specialize in offering breathtakingly surreal unsolicited advice.

They also oscillate between being super-practical and then running their entire lives off dream-messages or the I-Ching the next.

Mercury Neptune opposition people are adept practitioners in glamor and style (Elizabeth Taylor, Marlene Dietrich) but can also be delusional, especially if Neptunian substances end up in the mix. An interesting example of this aspect is the channeller, J.Z. Knight. She kicked off that entire scene after, she says, a Lemurian Warrior named Ramtha appeared in their kitchen one night in 1977.

At the time, she was a beauty school drop-out married to the Tacoma dentist who invented acrylic fingernails. The point: if it has supernatural elements and seems like it should be in a movie, Mercury opposite Neptune energy is in play.

That’s from my Astral DNA birth chart report but I need to add Nina Simone into that delineation!

 

“I made wine from the lilac tree, put my heart in its recipe, it makes me see what I want to see, and be what I want to be.”

Nina Simone

Lilac Wine is super Neptunian.  Anyway, welcome to the Mercury Opposite Neptune Mood Board!

San Junipero

The bar at St Junipero is totally Neptunian.

Moebius

 

James Eads

I forget the reason, but I loved you once,
remember?

Maybe in this season, drunk
and sentimental, I’m willing to admit
a part of me, crazed and kamikaze,
ripe for anarchy, loves still.

SN and Neptune opposing my Sun…no wonder I keep getting messages that I need to concentrate on earth and water. Fire and air (particularly air) being my preferred elements.

Neptune on south node in 7th. Lovely so far thank you pliz. Sunday we moved the furniture around AGAIN, and have found a configuration that finally feels right. We swapped the bedroom with the living room, bought new bed linen and mattress topper, put up heavy curtains. I am sleeping well and husband and I are building bridges after the revolting time we had in September. Spent a lot of time just cuddling and talking in lovely room. Yesterday I washed my hair for the first time in 17 weeks. No poo not working. I feel fuqin amazing today. Greenpeople… Read more »

Does anybody know or heard about dreaming of the Scandinavian devil? Someone told me once that dreaming of a blue-eyed devil is dreaming about a Scandinavian devil & that it is a thing – like some rite of passage for women.

A young woman told me of this dream of the blue eyed devil she had last night & was still shaken but intrigued by it. I had same sort of dream when i was her age. So wondering if anybody can shed more light on this theme.

Now in the past 48 hrs i have accumulated 3 piece of trash men attempting to woo me. I am so pissed off. One left a shitty broken up plucked rose on the windshield of my car. The rose smells like an ashtray and deli cold cut sweat with b.o. Another asked me to eat…SUPER FUCKING POISONOUS TO ME Greek food with him. Just no… No..,no..,leave me alone.… Read more »

I am done asking it Sun Tzu questions now, so I thought, ooh, day off, housewitch cure. Oracle told me to light a candle to Vesta and clean my oven, how did it know it was the one place left uncleaned? I literally moved furniture and dusted and hoovered underneath everything on Sunday. It was sparkling, save the bastard oven.

I lit the candle. Sometimes the Oracle is bang on and makes you squirm.

The housewitchery i love about the oracle. If it is something i feel free to ask the oracle all the time it is house stuff. Other things not so much. Today I figured out that part of my malfunction is that attracting these sort of unwanted men is what got me to stop playing music and singing so long ago in high school. Back then i blamed my multiple sexual assault on having a beautiful voice and then being seen in public because that is what my mother would say. Lord knows she cant have any responsibility in not teaching… Read more »

You know what is worse than getting ghosted in a dating scenario? Getting ghosted in a potential job thing? After i returned some emails with important job criteria and my abilities, fucking vapour for a couple of weeks! No automated email that says we got your reply and you’ll be hearing from us in x time. Nothing. Fuck i want to contact because i want this job so bad, a potential dream job for me esp if pay matches but dark moon rules and now this neptune crap. I suppose i will wait until after new moon to act.

Just realized that my progressed moon is at 11’30 Pisces – – almost exactly conjunct the south node. In the 11th – hmmmm I don’t know what to think! Really want to quit my job and be an artist though. It’s also square my Saturn – just completed second Saturn return.

I have to say that as someone trying to get over a karmic relationship (a “this is the last time, scorched earth, horrible plutonic power dynamics” type) this does not sound like the most helpful transit ever. I’m just going to focus on Saturn as much as I can, in spite of hopelessly Geminian (insomniac, highly distractible, analysis-mad) tendencies. Or, okay, mine it for insight into relationship patterns. The problem is NOT that I don’t know what I’m doing, though. It’s that I don’t know how to stop doing it. I tried ‘normal’ & got bored, now karma has sent… Read more »

I’m loving this transit. North node is exact on my ascendant. Everything is magical. There are some wonderful and surprising connections happening, both old and new. Sure there have been some messy moments in the last few weeks but no regrets. I was going to say it’s wish fulfilment but it’s actually the opposite of that. What’s happening is the real manifestation of almost forgotten wishes coming to pass.

Another poster child here for this transit…my 7th house sun/Saturn/Merc and 8th house Psyche / Chiron in the mix. I’d love to say it was all music and art… However for the first time in my life I am actually addressing some of my more self-destructive behaviours and putting in proper steps to deal with them. Rather than just telling myself off and attempting to stop them without replacing them with anything else. Cleaning up my diet is having a positive effect on my dreams. I’m still dreaming of my ex-hub but the dreams are changing in quality. Hopefully moving… Read more »

This should explain the dreams about a childhood frenemy (kataka sun/scorp asc/leo moon). He gave me a hard time but also was the most genuine relationship I had growing up and urged me to improve myself and be who I was when tween peer pressure was at an ultimate high. Sadly, I gave in to most of the pressure and modeled myself after an ideal that hurt me until the zap zone and saturn square neptune (1st-11th houses for me) crushed it. Now I’m closer to who I was when we were friends and the dreams are probably more about… Read more »

frankly I’m a bit tired of being implicated in these outer planet configs! *smiles wanly* the Neptune Saturn square was exact on my ASC (neptune) and MC (saturn). now Neptune on the south node is right on my ASC and the virgo north node is right on my DESC (natally I have neptune rising). I’ve been going great guns re sobriety and a grown up new relationship, but this last week has seen me depth bombing some of the less – ahem! – attractive characteristics of Neptune. to be fair, i have neptune trine venus natally, so its not unknown… Read more »

ol’ Neptune is natally conjunct my south node and on the descendant for me. I for reals thought I’d gotten my head around the whole love zombie thing in the last couple of years, only to take a look around me this month to see that I’m still stuck in the house of mirrors! Ohhhhhhh the delusion game is strong peeps. Luckily Pluto is steamrolling over my cappy sun in the 7th and Mars has been poking all the dead things with sticks to see if there are signs of life, past or present. Mars really helped me end something… Read more »

I woke up from a very intense dream last night, where the name of an old college classmate from almost 2 decades ago, was repeated over and over. He had a thing for me back then, but we never really got to know each other, or even keep in touch. I woke up feeling like I had to look this person up. I click on this site and I see this post. Does this mean that this is all a pretty but pointless illusion? I mean, wtf I never even thought about this person for decades and suddenly he is… Read more »

I love it…and because it’s all in Sag, I am a human lie detector, which serves me incredibly well, because not only do I know the lie, but I can intuit the truth. The challenge for me with this placement is to stay grounded and to get out of my head. I have an overactive imagination!

Hey does Venus conjunct my south node natally, and being a Pisces, mean that basically I get this vibe all the time so I am kind of immune /a native speaker?

I’d also like to know! My 24 degrees Venus in Aries conjuncts my south node, in (wait for it), 7th house.

Out of the blue, strong emotions came forward last week processing about the lover I left this time last year……he has Venus at 15 Pisces, so our Mars/Venus conjunction is in this undertow transit……. There is still so much magnetic pull there……I mean, Mars/Venus conjunct in PISCES?! Come on! The… Read more »

Am I seeing things or the north node (hence the SS as well) moves backwards? Last year it was in Libra, this year is in Virgo.
Is that for real? I hadn’t noticed that. Ever.

marsbar

Yes they are always retrograde moving backwards! 😀

Jokerman
Jokerman

But when it IS Rx it is moving forward which is backwards. But when it is stationary it is not moving at all…..which it really is moving. But it is not really there. But it is there if you imagine it. Imagine that for a moment but a moment is really there bcos if you stop it is gone. Like music can not be paused bcos if you do you can’t enjoy it. If you play it backwards watchout for the nodes.

MissDeeMM Member
MissDee

So Marsbar now that is going retrograde while moving backward, is actually going direct?
My head is spinning. ?

Nodes move clockwise on a chart. Counter to the rest. When they are Rx they move anti.

Love this: “a part of me, crazed & kamikaze/ripe for anarchy…” Yas! My natal nodes square my Pisces AC-Jupiter (and my Neptune’s on my North Node– which Saturn is creeping up on atm, feeling that), so baseline batshit drunk & sentimental, no alcohol required.

“This astro-passage is a like an astral drug and it’s morphed into a designer version until the end of November.” Well, this certainly explains the 2016 Election, now doesn’t it? 😉 😀 No way I’m drinking THAT Kool-Aid, though…! It really is a travesty. Like we’re collectively huffing the last of the tail-end Piscean Era’s fumes in a desperate attempt to get high, only we may well asphyxiate in the process. That’s the only way I can logically explain what I’m seeing, anyway. There are two words I feel accurately sum up Neptune on the Pisces SN (in any context):… Read more »

Right now I have Neptune on the south node on MY south node, which is my IC, meaning north node on my north node on my MC….

and yep… I’m pretty confused lol.

New career projects inspired by creative nostalgia, moving towns to my dream town. Craving/creating a morph/ transition in career.

But I have to say… there’s a definite restlessness and fear thing going on.
I want to race out into the future but Saturn is my ruler sitting in my 12th.
It’s exciting but what will this new future hold!?!?

I can’t possibly imagine what this could bring that is worse than what my mind has done to me already in 2016 so i am feeling somewhat neutral about this. If nothing else I have learnt some good coping techniques. Maybe it helps that these two complete a natal water trine with Vesta and Uranus. Also Venus and Saturn will be transiting over my natal Neptune so yes, the transit is as the transit does I guess. Also I think the little glider in the illustration with the boy in the magical floating bed is really special for some reason.

Ursula Andress, gawd she really does embody Pisces illusionary woman. Perfect in the 1960’s film “She” based on H R Haggards story of an immortal queen – forever searching for for her ex-lover. Talk about Pisces/South Node theme gone horribly wrong.

You just reminded me that the NN is going to conj my Virgo rising during second half of November while Nept on SS takes place at a “exact degree”.
Don’t know what to expect.

I recently found out I am very “Neptunian” (Nept conjunct my IC being one of the most exact aspect of my birth chart) and I already am a Mars and Venus in Kataka gal. I’m not sure I can take more “water” then I am now.

Well, i think Water is the perfect medium for getting at the Truth. And for feeling its ramifications, and then letting those feels move through to where they need to rest. Remember, water is a great conduit for electricity. And it wears away stone. With fire, it creates a steam engine’s piston fuel. And it cools the metal between metalwork processes. It makes the air full of cleansing rain. It’s hard emotional / intuitive labour, being Water. But, in the same way art seeps into the soul to make deep changes, it is a catalyst.
