On August 7, 2015, Mercury entered Virgo. Mercurial energy will change and become more critical and demanding. At 8-9 degrees of Virgo, Mercury opposes Neptune, the planet of illusion, delusion, confusion and lies and miscommunication, and this becomes exact August 12. The energy of this transit however will be apparent before and after this date.
Mercury-Neptune energy is misleading, confusing, discouraging and it becomes difficult to communicate clearly. Even if you communicate clearly, those you communicate with may not understand what you are saying, or vice versa. This transit is indicative of unrealistic thinking, being out of touch with reality, as well as smoke and mirrors, lies and deception, some of which will be unearthed in the world and in your personal life if this transits sets off a transit in your personal chart. It can indicate depression, unclarity, lies, and very unclear circumstances.
This will aspect your personal chart if you have mutable planets (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, or Pisces) at 8-10 degrees. If this does hit your chart, it will take on the energies of the planet and house in your chart it aspects.
Situations can be uncovered at this time. As Neptune is confusing, don't take anything you uncover as truth without evidence to back it up. Many people will experience a feeling of being confused, slighted or discouraged. Try and not take this energy seriously as Neptune and the personal ego don't mix well. It can indicate lack of confidence, and very uncertain circumstances. Let this transit pass before jumping to conclusions
At its highest this transits can indicate a period of compassion, spirituality and a drive to work for the highest good in a selfless manner. Mercury-Neptune at its best can be a look into the infinite that we call life and all its mysteries.
Dreams will be vivid at this time, and some may be prophetic, but they may also make little sense.
On the world stage, untruths can be uncovered and lies exposed and told. Neptune represents pictures and we could hear of scandals and be subject to them ourselves is this transit is aspecting our chart.
We could see water related weather conditions over the next few days.
