When you are under stress or mounting pressure you can learn to distinguish between your rich inner world of fantasy and imagination and the physical world around you. Under typical circumstances however, the boundary between your inner and outer worlds is blurry.

You are easily confused about your own emotions and the emotions of those around you. In this case your powerful creative mind can work against you by inventing narratives about the intentions of others and the world around you which may not be fact based.

You have a preference for retreating into your imaginary life and while your inner world can be a source of creative inspiration, fueling projects that help to keep you balanced, it is more likely you will use your abilities to escape reality.

If the escape is not complete enough, emotional turmoil can compel you to experiment with drugs or alcohol to retreat further from reality and this only complicates the challenges already present in your life. It is much more helpful for you to transmute conflict using your imagination and creativity, rather than seeking to avoid it.

Moon trine Neptune

You are highly sensitive and imaginative. You feel things intensely and are empathically attuned to the energy of others. Your antenna to the spiritual world is fine tuned and as a result you easily perceive messages and guidance from beyond this physical realm.

You are likely to be as sensitive as a tuning fork, responding to every instinct, and receiving every energetic signal around you.

This is a blessing in some ways, as it is not at all difficult for you to open your mind and heart to the interconnectivity of all of creation. The difficulties arise when you are unable to distinguish the meaning of the numerous signals you perceive.

You may become easily overwhelmed and retreat further into your inner fantasy world. Your creativity in this sense can be a crutch because it shields you from dealing with your surroundings and distracts you from the important messages from your emotions.

Your imaginary life is so well developed that you may become confused about the difference between your intuition and higher guidance and your unconscious desires. Especially in love and relationships, you may respond to your own wishful thinking, assuming it is divine guidance.

Having much creativity, you can fascinate people through your speech, imagination and writings.

You try to bend reality according to your emotional needs. Sometimes for you it is not clear where reality ends and imagination starts, so you might tell lies and manipulate others emotionally even without your intention.

You tend to become attracted to idealistic figures with little connection to reality. Feeding an impossible ideal is functional to protect you from reality's disappointments.

You need to face the real world, by observing your emotional reactions for what they are, without becoming lost in a net of confusing thoughts. Meditation greatly helps in detaching from thoughts and unmanageable emotions.

Your source of confusion might come from your early years where you felt your mother was a source of changes, confusion and unreliability.

You are tempted to resort to alcohol or substances to lower the emotional pressure and to keep staying in an imaginary world without facing reality, or to just withdraw in a passive state where responsibilities are avoided.

What might help you is to become grounded in body work and in inner inquiring. Massage, martial arts, and yoga can contribute to your centering and to face reality without escaping from it.

You don’t initially understand the power of your intuition and vulnerable emotions and so you may seek to suppress your emotional, empathic nature. In doing so you are likely to also stifle the gifts that will help you reach greater depths of intimacy.

Your creativity may be used as a shield from reality in your early life. To avoid difficult feelings or interpersonal conflicts, you are likely to escape into your inner world and withdraw from others.

With maturity and experience, you will learn how to harness your powers of vulnerability, intuition and compassion in order to create deeper romantic and personal connections.

In addition you will be able to learn to develop spiritually and emotionally to the point where your intuition is easily accessed and your creativity becomes a part of your coping mechanism when under stress, rather than a defense that you hide behind.
