    My mother has Mercury conjunct Neptune in Libra. In my observation, she does possess an acute intuition that doesn’t really fail her (and sometimes it creeps me out). Sometimes, I can pick up the subtleties in her voice (almost to the point of being hyper-sensitive to them).

    I find that with that position, it really makes my mom a “master diplomat” – she’s extremely tactful and knows just the right words to use show she doesn’t offend but if she has to, she’ll give you the blunt truth.

    Her voice is very interesting. She has an infectious laugh, she has a beautiful singing voice (she’s an alto but was once a soprano) – you can definitely tell she’s a Libra by her voice: “an iron fist in a velvet glove”.

    Funny thing about her is that even though she’s principled and devoted to her faith, there are some moments when she’ll listen to me talk about astrology. I even dissected a bit of her chart and translated it for her and she agrees with a bit of it. Her mind ebbs and flows like the tide with information that she’d sometimes call “blamphsemy”. She highly interested in prophecy and foresight too. Could that be a symptom of the Mercury / Neptune conjunction?

      I don’t see why not.

    Bob Dylan has mercury 22 gemini square neptune 24 virgo. 

    • Michelle

      The “AA” rated natal chart on astro.com and astrotheme.com gives the positions stated in the post: http://www.astro.com/astro-databank/Dylan%2C_Bob

      Maybe you didn’t see he was listed.

      I would have been surprised if Bob Dylan didn’t have a Mercury/Neptune aspect.

    Libra Mercury in the 9th square Neptune in Capricorn in the 12th – cannot effectively communicate with humanity leading to mental illness. :( Waa, passively seeking an outlet.

    • Michelle

      Lol!

  • Leah-nine

    *Mercury sextiles, not trines Neptune. I don’t think you can have four trines in a chart, haha.

  • Leah-nine

    Aha… Very illuminating. 12th Merc trines 4th Neptune and Saturn. A lot of time the time I feel as though I’m communicating with people’s subconscious. Very confusing. Saturn opposite Chiron which trines Mercury also contributes to the madness.

  • amoureuse

    Mercury – opposite neptune. I always get spaced out. Painting helps alot

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Interesting. I don’t get spaced out while painting either. Is your Saturn connected to Mercury or Neptune?

      • Anonymous

        yep. trine. what does it mean when it is trine?

      • Anonymous

        oopss… made a mistake. no. i got not trine. saturn is not connected to merc and neptune.

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          I was just wondering if Saturn might act as an anchor to your Mercury and Neptune.

          • Anonymous

            i dont know what u mean about anchor. but my mercy and neptune is in opposition. what does that mean?

            • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

    What would your interpretation of Mercury conjunct Neptune in Libra in the 9th House be?

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Probably the need to communicate about your beliefs in a refined and sensitive way; a person who is finely tuned to issues of artistry, ethics and fairness.

  • Rmary_13

    :O ooh I love the tv picture
    I have the mercury neptune conjunction like 1degree apart and Uranus happens to be in the middle of the two. does that make any difference?

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Your Mercury/Neptune conjunction has a Uranian influence. Stay tuned for the Mercury/Uranus aspects post which is coming up next.

  • Msfullroller

    Mercury retro in Pisces sextile Neptune in Scorpio.

    • Msfullroller

      Oops, I meant trine! See what you get with a Mercury retro natally in a Mercury retro period. Thank goodness for my good ole Saturn conjunct Mercury retro, otherwise I’d probably be several cards short of a full deck. lol

      • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

        Yeah ;)

        Do you feel that you can be both vague and specific at the same time?

        • Msfullroller

          Yep! ;-) Especially when asked something regarding me.

  • Eclipse

    ii have mercury (leo 11th) trine neptune (3rd sagittarius) and I daydream so much that I do mix reality and illusion very often. I often finish other’s people sentences and read people’s thoughts, at the same I can be very vague in what I say. I start daydreaming when people talk and sometimes I miss very important details!! that puts me in trouble sometimes ;-).

    I learn languages very easily just by being with people who spek it, that’s true! Pictures are created in my mind when people tell a story, and the same goes when I speak, it seems like I have living it…

    Oh I retain every single lyrics of the songs I listen (leo moon conjunct leo mercury 11th trine neptune 3rd).
    I find it a cool aspect :-), even if my life is full of misunderstandings ;-)

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Thank you for sharing your experience Eclipse – fascinating :)

  • http://3rdhouseparty.typepad.com/blog/ Les

    I have Mercury sextile Neptune (and Jupiter), with Mercury conjunct Venus and Pluto. And OOS square Mars. So it’s all very complicated! I will become very familiar with my Mercury-Neptune sextile next year when transiting Neptune moves into opposition with my Mercury at 0 Virgo. Should be, ah, interesting. At least Neptune will have moved beyond its long transit square my Mars. I may get my physical energy back even while losing my mind. ;-)

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      I may get my physical energy back even while losing my mind. ;-)
      Lol…perfect!

      Which house is your Mercury in?

      • http://3rdhouseparty.typepad.com/blog/ Les

        First house. Neptune is in my 3rd, 5 degrees from the IC.

  • http://fascinus.tumblr.com/ Joswan

    Oh how I love the “osmosis” term. I used to be genius with this aspect (Mercury trine Neptune) until Saturn square shake this up and make me speechless. Right now I’m a hobo painter, unable to explain my art in words. :)

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      The Saturn square might just be pointing to a need to concentrate on a few things.

      • http://fascinus.tumblr.com/ Joswan

        You know, back then when I took English composition writing, my teacher told me that my mechanic skill is need a little bit work on (aka horrible) but he enjoyed my writing because he said I definitely has “style”/ writing style. When I think again, what amazing is, I have my writing style before I mastered my grammar, that just bizzare *_* hehe :)

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          Not so bizarre…style doesn’t have much to do with grammar ability. So many people get the mechanics of writing but don’t know how to express themselves with it.

          • http://fascinus.tumblr.com/ Joswan

            That’s why I consider if I have future in writing? Well, maybe :D The problem is I dont have too much patience.
            I guess visual imagery is the one best suited me, I’m heading to graphic world for my continuing education :)

            • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

              You are certainly suited to the visual world. Is that what you got your degree in- visual graphic design?

              • http://fascinus.tumblr.com/ Joswan

                Yes difinitely :)

    Wow. Am I the ONLY person suffering from Mercury square Neptune around these parts? LOL

    I say suffer because I am likely being dramatic as a person with Mercury square Neptune might be prone to do (not to mention that Leo rising!), but also because this square is between my logic and order loving Mercury in Virgo and my imaginative. big dream loving Sagittarius.

    I definitely find myself having trouble focusing on the task at hand at times – unless there is an outside time pressure or firm commitment to keep all that daydreaming at bay. I guess at times my mind is struggling between a focus on the small daily concrete provable truths and the larger philosophical truths with a capital T.

    Daydreaming about any number of things is my favorite pastime and escape. I only wish I employed it less often. I think most of the time my Mercury in Virgo can keep Neptune in Sagittarius more or less in check and focus on the details at hand, but since my Neptune is also conjunct my Scorpio Moon, I don’t always succeed at all.

    Confusing sibling relationships? Check! I have half siblings on both sides that I didn’t grow up with and it makes me feel confused about where they should fit into my life. Then again, all my family relationships are confusing to some extent since Neptune resides in my 4th house.

    So now that I have taken you all on a completely unnecessary, tangent-laden and inefficient excursion (Again, there goes that blasted Mercury square Neptune) thru some of my inner dynamics, I will conclude by saying that I can relate to some of the interpretive possibilities listed. lol

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Lol :D

      I can really relate to the confusing sibling and family relationships as well…Neptune sesquiquadrate Mercury, with Neptune in the 4th too.

      Mercury in Virgo probably helps keep Neptune in Sagittarius from losing all sense of boundary and limitation. Otherwise you might just drift along with nothing to mark your way.

  • Zodiacal_macaw_1210

    I have Mercury in Sagittarius (12H) semi – sextile Neptune in Capricorn (1H). I have a knack for voice impersonation but I tend to favor doing impressions of women that have contralto voices like Pat Carroll, Carol Channing, Bea Arthur, Angela Lansbury and Rosalind Russell lol

    I’ve found that people that possess beautiful singing voice or are great voice actors have a Mercury / Neptune aspect.
    Susan Boyle:Mercury – Neptune trine
    Michael Buble: Mercury – Neptune sextile
    Angela Lansbury: Mercury – Neptune sextile
    Bea Arthur: Mercury – Neptune sextile
    Mel Blanc: Mercury – Neptune conjunction
    Susan Blakeslee: Mercury – Neptune square
    Corey Burton: Mercury – Neptune square

    • Zodiacal_macaw_1210

      I should have also added people with pronounced, unforgettable voices

      • Zodiacal_macaw_1210

        Mike Meyers has an interesting voice

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          That’s so funny…I thought I mentioined him in this thread. He does have an interesting, and adaptable voice. I think I looked him up and he does have a Mercury/Neptune aspect.

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      That’s interesting…lol…

      That just prompted me to check out Mike Myers (not that he has a beautiful singing voice!) He has Mercury opposite Neptune.

  • Lili

    I have Mercury (0 Taurus) QUINCUNX my Neptune-Jupiter conjunction (1 $ 2 Sag). When I take an interest in something, I often get carried away. My mind goes to places I don’t want/expect it to go… Which is not so good when I am feeling depressed/angry/jealous/insecure, but otherwise I don’t ever get bored. I also have a mixture of accents from three countries, and re: “An elusive sibling. Confusing sibling relationships. ” – yes, I have a sibling with a mental illness who often makes no sense…

    How would you describe the Quincunx, Michelle?

    Also in a r’ship with a man with Mercury CONJUNCT Neptune. He writes fantasy novels for a living.

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      I’m thinking about writing a much longer post about the quincunx, but my basic idea is that it involves an adjustment of expectations. Two planets in quincunx to each other have to adjust their expectations of how things “are supposed to work.”

      • Lili

        that would be really great!

  • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

    It’s interesting how many more people have the minor aspects of Mercury/Neptune than the major aspects (compared to the other planet combination polls).

      What effect do you think the retrogrades have on your placements?

      • Anonymous

        i think the retrograde makes the square feel more internal. my reactions to it are usually internalized. a lot of my angst as a kid was due to misguided notions of myself – i wasn’t very sure of myself. i mean most kids aren’t, but i had a hard time believing in myself. i very much wanted to take drugs and get lost, get wasted. lots of runaway fantasies. when i took up meditation in college, it changed everything. for the first time i understood the connection between my thoughts and my reality, my happiness. since then i haven’t cared to do drugs or drink so much. i can get lost in my creative projects – that’s more fulfilling to me.

        i’m naturally introverted so with the neptune contact i have very, very vivid fantasies (and alternatively, nightmares) – it would not surprise me if i started to float off the ground. creative visualizing is easy for me and is a more effective way for me to grasp the meaning of my jumbled thoughts and emotions. like sometimes, instead of *thinking*, i’ll just let images pop into my mind. and as i’ve gotten older i’ve learned to trust those images – they’re metaphors, but they’re like messages from my higher self.

        the square was challenging moreso in childhood because i was afraid to face the truth a lot. my ego would either be inflated to neptunian proportions, or disappear entirely. i was quite gullible, evasive, accustomed to playing the victim and the martyr. as i got older i started to figure out how my thoughts affected my well-being. sound body, sound mind, etc.

        just now i had an image of me standing on a cliff ledge, looking out over the grand canyon. clear sky. peace, clarity, a view from above. this is where my mercury-neptune has taken me.

        • Anonymous

          one more thing. growing up i was very sensitive to messages from the media. magazines with flawless beautiful girls. television sitcoms with happy families. movies where the girl always gets the guy. i was addicted to all these puffed up fantasies, but it was also my downfall because i became disconnected from real life and from my real self.

          mercury square neptune = reality check.

        • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

          Beautiful!

          instead of *thinking*, i’ll just let images pop into my mind. and as i’ve gotten older i’ve learned to trust those images – they’re metaphors, but they’re like messages from my higher self.

          I love that!

  • Tuscan

    I have this one : a trine from mercury in cap to neptune in scorpio. I love to read and write poems and like to speak about movies.And , yeah, i do have overly idealistic notions.

    • Tuscan

      Not a trine but a sextile.

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      I imagine that Mercury/Neptune people might be the least likely to want to “kill your television.”

    “No limit to the number of mental connections you can make. No boundaries to the ways that information can be linked together.”

    Those particular descriptions made me laugh. So true! I have this conjunction (in Scorpio), but the two are also conjunct Jupiter, so that probably changes things a bit. Or maybe it just exaggerates the qualities you’ve described (lol!)

    Because I value the truth, I’ve never been much of a liar (more of a diplomat), but I’m definitely a storyteller prone to using poetic language and painting pictures with words; my art also tells a story and seems to evoke strong feelings in others. I have a very soft voice and I sing. To some extent, I’m also able to mimic different singers, and even though my voice may be completely different, something is the same. I’m a sponge when it comes to accents and often get mistaken for being from the country of whomever I’ve been hanging out with, which is unintentional and annoying. I also love TV, movies, and spiritual or other-worldly music. Maybe because my conjunction is right on the cusp of my 2nd/3rd (and quintile my Gemini MC), I’m able to pick up information using my hands; I’d like to incorporate this ability in my new career as a Reiki practitioner.

    And of course, I pick up clues others miss. Somehow I just know things. But rarely am I able to convey that knowing in such a way as to allow others to understand, except through my art. I try, I really do.

    BTW, my astro-twin, Viggo Mortensen also has this conjunction.

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Viggo! :D swoon.

      Madonna has the sextile which may help explain her quick English accent.

      As always, I love to read your responses.

  • Jara

    LOL @ “Ninja mind”. You hit all of the nails on the head with one hammer, Michelle.

    Mercury is so strong in my chart. I have this aspect and my entire chart points to learning how to discriminate (“Indiscriminate influx of information.”) is a lifelong lesson.

    • http://astrofix.net/ Michelle

      Thanks Jara. Which aspect do you have?
