“Neptune and Hunches Involved with Mercury and the Moon?”


An article in the New York Times, July 28, 2009 by Benedict Carey entitled “In Battle, Hunches Prove to Be Valuable Assets” , in which the government is doing a study on our soldiers in Iraq who are surviving the war using their hunches to avoid danger and dangerous situations.  The top story was about Sgt. First class Edward Tierney, acting on an urge while leading a patrol, gave a command to fall back right before a blast.  The headlines got me to thinking what planet or planets handle intuition, psychic perception, and hunches.  Of course, the first planet that came to mind was Neptune, but if you were a traditional astrologer, might it be Mercury and or the Moon?  The following dissertation is of my own making and how I see it for myself.  You may disagree and that is okay.  I am talking about hunches or short psychic impressions one gets on any subject.  I compare hunches to Twitter; they are short little messages to the brain to tell you what they think of the situation at hand.  It is not like being psychic or a clairvoyant where one receives a whole story on a situation.


To me hunches are more than psychic impressions with the paranormal which would involve Neptune, but being observant of all that is going on around you is a necessary ingredient.  Having your psychic antennas always on, and being able to digest the information and to put it all together takes Mercury to be in control.  Is that all?  Not so fast says my book, how ones’ emotion plays its’ part, is a big component in whether we even receive the message, or if we did, what significance would it have in our lives.  The emotions color how we accept the message and it controls our body language, and our body language is what other people respond to.  I am wondering whether some of the messages we are receiving is body language from others, because it is their emotions on display.  Our emotions can deceive and get the best of us, and make us do things we might not want do, so Mercury needs to be in the picture to balance out the playing field.  Too much thought power without some emotion is the same as too much emotional without some clear thinking, just bad chasing after bad.  The important thing is the balance of Mercury to the Moon, so that the antenna that is picking up from the psychic wave length (Neptune) can be deciphered correctly and be to our benefit.


Seeing how this works out in ones chart, check the signs, the houses and the aspects they make to one another by the three planets and then to your Sun.  This doesn’t prevent one from screwing up the messages, but helps one to understand how you perceive your intuition and the way it works in your life.  Neptune gives us the ability to see and hear from the other worlds, but it is like a basket full of colors which Mercury and the Moon have organized into the rainbow ending at the pot of gold which is represented by the Sun.  We need to have gratitude and respect for these planets which bring us our hunches which at times can be our lifesavers.  Although hunches can help us out of dangerous circumstances, they can also bring us into conditions which one calls lucky or born with a silver spoon.  So next time you have a hunch that you act on, remember to thank your lucky stars and planets for the advice and guidance.
