Melanie makes a good point. All my life, people have said to me, "Gee ... I never thought of it that way."
I have multi-Uranian influences on my tangential thinking, but I also attribute this not-linear approach to my Mercury square Neptune. I never reach a clear conclusion really. One doesn't seem to exist. But occasionally I get a clear cut with Mars, also square.
The circuitous path that Mercury-Neptune takes leads to rather imaginative places and I would probably have to agree. Some of them are extensively ridiculous. Some only moderately.
Interesting, no? How squares can be circles.
