Mercury Conjunction Venus

Posted by admin on February 5, 2010

You have a good appreciation of the aesthetic and of the finer subtleties implicit in the mind’s artistic processes. More than this, though, is your ability to use the mind itself as an art form, with all the creative sensitivity this implies.

Mercury Conjunction Mars

You have a strong mind, and one which accepts and responds to a challenge without too much forethought or timidity. You’re nobody’s fool, and you use your considerable powers of persuasion with often remarkably successful results.

When you’re bad, you can be extremely cutting and sarcastic. You can make sweet little things cry, and English roses wilt. When you’re good, you can use the same mental powers to great constructive effect, becoming incredibly forthright and far-seeing, and so unflinching and strong-minded as to be an inspiration to all.

Sometimes you just feel like running screaming from the room until everyone and everything in there just shuts the hell up or turns into a cloud of smoke and disappears. In other words, when things start grating, you get angry and anger, as we all well know, leads to much frustration and headbanging.

Mercury trine/sextile Mars

You can handle disruptive or potentially threatening situations better than most because your mental strength allows you to remain unflustered and therefore capable of warding off your foes. In other words, you’re living proof that the key to winning over adversity is very much a case of mind over matter.

Mercury Conjunction Jupiter

Posted by admin on February 5, 2010

You have a good feeling for the drama of situations – all that overblown emotionalism and heightened tension is like food for your soul. You need these qualities to such a degree that often you’ll exaggerate mundane events in order to accommodate your sense of fantasy.

Mercury Opposition Jupiter

Your appetite for experiencing altered states, intellectually and emotionally, is legendary, and others know you for your willingness to dance with the devil. However, though this might sound amusing it’s ultimately self-destructive. There’s only one altered state you should strive for – that of overseeing, and therefore learning from, your follies!

Your enthusiasm for all that which is larger than life – the excitement of extraordinary events – can lead you on an endless chase after mental and emotional sensationalism. The paradox is, though, that such persistent chasing can over strain your sight to the point of developing a permanent blind spot. That is, opportunities can stare you right in the face and you won’t even see them!

Mercury trine/sextile Jupiter

Intellectually, it’s easy for you to understand the heightened thoughts and emotions which give rise to grand causes and events. In fact, you have all the ingredients in your own mind which could enable you to bend your talents to championing such causes yourself.

Mercury Conjunction Saturn

Posted by admin on February 5, 2010

You have good intellectual powers of structure and stick ability. When you begin a project you usually see it through to the end. Or, put another way, you often don’t start anything until you have already visualized the outcome which predetermines your approach to the whole thing anyway.

Mercury Opposition Saturn

Posted by admin on February 5, 2010

You have great powers of intellectual endurance and stamina and can withstand mental pressures for longer than most, and with less damaging after effects. Paradoxically, however, because your mind is, in fact, tuned to a very fine tension, it also runs the danger of snapping and, when it does, you might find yourself picking up the pieces for years to come, for there’ll be so much to put back together again!

Mercury Square Saturn

Posted by admin on February 5, 2010

Your mind is forever casting about, looking for rocks upon which to fasten itself. Well, truth is, those rocks are literally everywhere and any one of them can be latched on to and secured. It’s the art of actually finding a base for your intellectual powers, in order to build on it, which should be your primary aim – if you haven’t done this already, of course!

Mercury trine/sextile Saturn

Posted by admin on February 5, 2010

Your powers of concentration and foresight are very well developed. You can see through to the depths of things, thus giving you a good basis for building up a foundation of intellectual strength and structure. You have great intel lectual stamina and resilience. You understand life by building a mental framework for your thoughts, a process that takes information and links them together. Sometimes you take longer than others to learn something new, this is the time it takes to both build the framework and then include all the information so that all facts are pieced together in their most efficient order. However, once you have completed this mental feat you dont just understand it, you know it inside out and back to front.

Mercury Conjunction Uranus

Posted by admin on February 5, 2010

You have the kind of mind which makes leaps and bounds in all sorts of directions. You make intellectual connections which astound others, leaving them wondering where you get your flair and inspiration. But, sometimes, depression sets in and then. . well, let’s just say you become a little difficult to live with.

Mercury Opposition Uranus

Posted by admin on February 5, 2010

Your mind is tuned to such a pitch that your intellectual tension is truly as fine as glass wire. Along these fila -ments travel all kinds of illuminated thoughts, some of them so strikingly original as to verge on what lesser mortals call genius. But, careful now: the harder they come the harder they fall!

Mercury rules the mental processes and the neuro-circuits of the brain, Uranus corresponds to the higher mind, the ’sudden insight’ type of thinking. This aspect both links these two faculties and creates tension between them. As well as having the ‘genius’ ability you can also suffer from mental overload caused by the higher mind or thought processes running faster than the circuits of the brain can handle. Restlessness, irritability and a stressful head are all signs of this overload and are the brain’s way of saying SLOW DOWN.

You have what one might call a ‘quirky’ mind. That is, one whose individualism shoots off into all kinds of unexpected areas with enough randomness to be considered eccentric. You can be clever, you can be difficult but, nearly always, you’re different.

Mercury trine/sextile Uranus

Posted by admin on February 4, 2010

Inspiration comes pretty easily to you. You have a creative intellect and one which thinks around corners with sufficient efficency to give you an effortlessly original approach. Indeed, at times your individuality of mind could court the envy of others. You can be quite apt at “winding people up” to you this is just a case of adding fun to what you might see as pretty boring conversation, to others it may some times seem like you do not take life seriously. At the end of the day though, who enjoys themselves the most?

Mercury Conjunction Neptune

Posted by admin on February 4, 2010

You have the kind of mind which can easily incorporate things from the so-called ‘other dimension’ – that outlying area in which dreams and reverie are said to reside. You can actually ’see’ with your mind – this is simultaneously exciting and frightening – the latter because sometimes you may perhaps see too far before you’re ready.

Mercury Opposition Neptune

Posted by admin on February 4, 2010

You’re capable of some very extreme and inspired mindtravelling, journeying to areas which others couldn’t even dream of. This is indeed a gift but, sometimes, you might think it more of a burden: the strain of living with an inspirational cast of mind could make you feel that being different is too much of a responsibility. But. . don’t despair. Be grateful!

You have the type of mind that ’sees’ reality in picture form, and your imagination can edit these pictures so as to make them perceivably different, to you at least. This can give you a strange sense of humour that can become very abstract at times. You may have good photographic skills since you can create a picture in your mind before you actually take it.

Mercury Square Neptune

Posted by admin on February 4, 2010

You have a very clever – some would say devious – intellect and can trip unsuspecting opponents easily and paint them into a corner. Once boxed in you tie them in knots and then walk away, leaving them tangled in their own predicament – or rather the predicament in which you yourself ensnared them.

Mercury trine/sextile Neptune

Posted by admin on February 4, 2010

Intellectually, you can easily accommodate elements which others of a more mundane persuasion might consider outlandish or occult. Indeed, matters of an esoteric or other worldly quality fascinate you and you will follow almost any school of thought which might claim to represent cryptic and hidden knowledge.

Mercury Conjunction Pluto

Posted by admin on February 4, 2010

You’re paranoid, but it’s actually a healthy, observant paranoia, not the result of isolationist panic. You imagine
all kinds of conspiracies and plots are being concocted in order to ensnare you in particular and others in general. Well, don’t look now, but there’s someone watching over your shoulder even at this very moment! In others words, what you believe to be true, is.

Mercury Opposition Pluto

Posted by admin on February 4, 2010

Mentally, you waver between the straight and narrow and the truly bizarre. Or, put another way, between that which is ‘voiceable’ and that which is perhaps better left unsaid and unheard. The point is, there’s intellectual power here – of the potentially subversive kind.

Mercury Square Pluto

Posted by admin on February 4, 2010

Sometimes you paint yourself into a corner at the back of your mind where there’s not one iota of light and no way out at all. We’re talking major depression here. But – and here’s the beauty of it – it never lasts for long: something always breaks and then – sunshine!

Mercury trine/sextile Pluto

Posted by admin on February 4, 2010

Intellectually, you can grasp the abstract pretty effortlessly. You have the kind of mind that frequently hovers out on the perimeter anyway, so you’re rather familiar by now with all the eccentric thought patterns others might seek to impose upon you, either for amusement or for a more sinister purpose. The point is you understand the control games which people play. You have good insight into the motives behind what people say on the surface; you see the good and the bad of mental manipulation.

Unaspected Mercury

Posted by admin on February 4, 2010

You have a prolific and restless intelligence: anything and everything interests you. This is both positive and negative. Positive because you can willingly explore and take on board an enormous variety of subject matter, and negative because you sometimes do this only because you are drifting, because you are without a mental anchor. At other times, you might chase after nothing at all, as you will have failed to become sufficiently motivated, or mentally focused enough, to consider it worth the effort. This, of course, is laziness and a frittering away of valuable energies. Still, it’s only how things can be, not how they are permanently. You are capable of considerable achievement in just about any field you choose – so if you haven’t already done so, choose one now!
