I am an avid reader. When I read a biography or autobiography, my next step is to run to the charts. I have been noticing that people who seem to make poor life decisions seem to, often, have Mercury in hard aspect to Neptune. Mercury is the planet of the mind. Neptune is the planet of deception. It is, also, the planet of creativity. If a person has Neptune in good aspect–the trine or sextile, they will, usually, have a wonderful imagination, but still have a firm footing in reality.
If a person has Mercury in hard aspect, one can see a slippage in the logic of the decision making skills. Now, I am not saying everyone with aspect is mentally ill. However, I AM saying that they can do things that look goofy to a logical person. I will give an example of a famous person–Melania Trump. I love Donald Trump. If I could kiss him a thousand times I would. Please, Trump haters, don’t bother me. Back to Melania. I think she made a grave error in judgement when she wore the jacket with the “I Really Don’t Care” message. She was setting herself up for more hate, not less. When a person is in a position in which they are hated, they should not fuel the fire. This incident made me rush to her chart and there was Mercury oppose Neptune.
I have seen the exact square in a person who, sadly, lost touch with reality.
I have the trine. This is a classic aspect for a writer.
I hope you enjoyed this rather bite size article.
