Mercury in the 13 Signs

By Natalie Miller

The world of the mind.  What sign our natal Mercury is in and it’s aspects give insight into how we think and how our nervous system operates, also the way in which we communicate.

Don't know what sign your Mercury is in? No problem, I'll look up where Mercury is in your 13 sign natal chart--feel free to contact me.


Mercury meets Aries

and Aries wants to take the reigns.  If you actually let her take the reigns, you may end up in some unforgiving brawls whether on the physical or spiritual plane.  Learning to think in broad terms and trying to pull yourself out of deeply emotional or complicated life situations that don’t serve your higher purpose will be some of your challenges.  The way out is to imagine your joy beyond the mountain in the way.  Fiercely charge onward to reach your prize, whatever it may be.


Mercury meets Taurus

and what you see is seldom what you get.  These natives tend to mostly have a calm exterior regardless of how their mind is churning.  They are like ticking time bombs because you can’t build up that much electrical charge without an eventual release.  They are prone to nervous system disorders if they don’t find an outlet.  Genius can be and often is born in these natives.


Mercury meets Gemini

and these natives seem to dwell in the in between.  They adapt to whatever energy is around them and mirror it without getting too involved.  They may seem contradictory at times because their mind can compartmentalize to a fault.  They use their prolific minds as a tool for understanding.  Look to them for an example of how the primitive brain works, and flourishes.


Mercury meets Cancer

and you have a wonderful soup of ideas, one flowing to the next to the next.  These natives like to connect everything to everything else.  This makes them vulnerable because it’s very hard for them to “weed things out” of their mind.  The impressions they get stick with them and can grow and build over time producing beautiful new worlds or hells.


Mercury meets Leo

and there is an overabundance of electrical discharge.  Others feel psychically and empathically connected to these natives and oftentimes so do they to others, but the reception on their side is usually echoed by their own strong discharge and therefore muddled.  They can be prone to misunderstand people and to be controlling.  Their selfishness can feel overwhelming, but ironically their shocking glow is something that can re-sus-ci-tate even the coldest of hearts.


Mercury meets Virgo

and the lamb is sacrificed.  These natives are constantly bombarded by information from the outside world.  They are usually self-less in how they think because they weigh many aspects before making decisions.  They seldom get stuck in life because they usually find the resources they need to create something better out of negative patterns, or to release them.  To walk alone is unnatural for these natives and to walk with others is a trip indeed.

Mercury meets Libra

and here we have the nutcracker.  These natives are good specialists.  They like to perfect one or two things in life and that’s that.  They can become obsessive over their hobbies.  They tend to take things extremely personally.  They are uncomfortable thinking about the consequences of their actions and therefore they usually leap before they look.  In the aftermath of this is where self hatred can begin to fester and it’s because of this self loathing that they can be cruel in their interaction with others.


Mercury meets Scorpio

and here we have the mystic or the fool, quite possibly both.  These natives can grow their bounty of eclectic thoughts into a treasure chest of knowledge or plunder them in the moment and subsequently struggle with having an incoherent mind.  There seems to be a big difference between the female Scorpio Mercury and the male.  The male will usually release their thoughts and emotions without regard for other’s feelings (when they feel comfortable to do so) and the female will usually hold on to her deeper thoughts and emotions but then like the Cancer Mercury feel imprisoned by them, or on occasion release them in atomic ways.

Mercury meets Ophiuchus

and the genie comes out of the bottle.  These natives are able to be in many places at once.  No matter what their other natal influences are, they are always highly dynamic people.  They can at times seem a bit repetitious or childish and they are good at moving on either with or without you.  They need plenty of time to meditate and be out in nature in order for them to remain grounded.  An unhealthy diet will lead to anger issues and faulty perceptions; but, kind words and music go a long way to regenerate whatever magic they need to travel between worlds.


Mercury meets Sagittarius

and here we have the burning man.  If you thought the Mercury in Aries or Leo didn’t have patience, then you will have your socks knocked off by the lightening speed bluntness of the Mercury in Sagittarius natives’ tongues.  They can be very entertaining because they aren’t afraid to go there, but they can use this same enterprising spirit to tear down whatever they believe no longer serves you or them (in their opinion), like the burning man.  Mercury in Sagittarius wraps itself around the other aspects of the natal chart and directs them as it sees fit.  This is one of the most powerful and respect worthy aspects in astrology.


Mercury meets Capricorn

and here we have the sage.  These natives are steady and reliable.  They like to get caught up in their own life’s mission but usually never lead reclusive lives.  They are just too curious and love to be the observer.  When confronted with strong emotions they are able to sit back and observe them before taking action.  They usually find meaning in many different forms of communication be it art, literature, or drama.


Mercury meets Aquarius

and here the mind has busted at the seems!  This dynamic is replicated by a strong Mercury - Neptune configuration in the natal chart.  With these influences (either Mercury in Aquarius or Mercury aspecting Neptune) one is a true empath.  They not only experience the emotions of others but also the thoughts, desires, and dreams of others.  Creativity and sometimes confusion are a part of their reality that they can only embrace and never run from, lest they be haunted.


Mercury meets Pisces

and we get to take a walk in the 4th dimension.  Time for Pisces Mercury doesn’t run parallel.  They can experience memories and thoughts from many different lifetimes or at least many different perspectives.  Things pop into their head unexpectedly.  It’s hard to pin their personality down regardless of the other influences in their chart because they are so dynamic and usually outgoing.  Gather your Mercury Pisces and love them hard before they disappear.  Poof!
