Maybe blocks was the wrong word to use. Its more like you can rise above the emotional realm. I guess the new age term is ascension. 

Somehow there is a way to sense what a person is going through without getting enmeshed. I guess its just about standing really firmly in your own vibration. Staying connected to your own source. Nature helps. Natural psychedelics help. Abstaining from alcohol helps. Resolving some of my own emotional issues helped. Meditation. 

What’s happened for me now, is that Im able to access the deeper pool of the collective. Its less personal and it feels much more expansive. Still definitely messy though. 

As far as the astrology, I forgot to mention that I have Neptune in 12th house sextile Sun and some personal planets in Scorpio. Ive read that 12th house Neptune is “psychic” but thats not the word I would use.

I'm quite empathic too...I am sure there are varying levels of intensity to this, but I can sense moods without a word needing to be spoken and have had psychic experiences through premonitions, dreams and deja vus. It's not just perceptiveness either, although that is an element too, but it's deeper than that, it's an acute sensitivity to energy, not just emotional energy but energy in general. This is why large crowds, social gatherings, all these things can be very overwhelming, it's an energy overload. 

I think this relates in large part to a Neptunian influence, as Neptune tends to dissolve boundaries, making us more open and vulnerable to external energies. Any kind of strong 12th house, Neptune influence or aspects seems to add to this. Pluto also relates to energy too, that's why Plutonians are energy manipulators in the way that they can sense and shift things around on an energetic level, and why they can be such great healers when used positively. 

I see you have your Sun in the 12th house, Neptune's natural home, I think that goes a long way in adding to your empathy, along with a watery Cancer Venus which is a deeply caring and sensitive placement in how it relates to others, aspecting your Moon which usually means your relationships with others have a greater impact on you emotionally, you cannot easily detach. 

Personally I have a highly aspected Moon/Chiron conjunction in the 8th house, plus a Neptune which is stationary direct in my natal chart squaring my nodes, making it a pretty prominent energy.

I think spiritually evolved people are also, in general, more likely to be empathic, because as you evolve a little past your ego and can see into a bigger picture, you recognize others are not so different from you in seeing their humanity, and it's only more natural to be able to empathise more easily with what you can relate to and understand.

Makes me relieved to know some of you relate. Yeah before I was into astrology & meditating I thought it was perceptiveness & me just overthinking about people. But as I tap into being more aware & into my true self I realize it’s a real thing to feel people’s energy. I don’t do well in large crowds either.. overwhelmed & overstimulated. Mainstream people would tell me I just have anxiety or need medication. But I refuse to be on medication & I’m glad I did because I moved back home to my small town & away from the city has helped tremendously. 

Im glad you can explain Neptune & Pluto more because I’ve known they are both deeper parts of our charts but haven’t understood their influences.. this conversation has helped me a lot this week. I can’t detach from my friends tragic divorces, depression all I do is worry about them & try to help. I’m more emotionally affected by their lives than my own. Help not always appreciated so it makes me feel worse when People take my intention as being nosy & my Intention is only to help heal. I agree we are all more in tune with the bigger picture of life. 

Anyways, thanks for the insight.
