Things to Know About Mercury Square Uranus

by Rebecca Brents


From Apr 2002*

Mercury in Taurus Square to Uranus in Aquarius

Mercury in Taurus (practical thinking, a desire to stick to well-laid plans) goes square to Uranus in Aquarius (the generation of independent and inventive proposals) tonight, ushering in a week or more of intellectual excitement that could bring a raft of new ideas, unexpected pieces of information, ingenious concepts "from out of the blue," and sudden changes of viewpoint -- that can both provide new stimulation and catch you totally off guard.

The welcome grounding of Taurus in this equation may keep these new thoughts practical, realistic, and semi-stable ... at least for a few hours, but the change of Mercury into Gemini in the very early hours of Tuesday morning is sure to kick the idea factory into very high gear. At that point we will have both these highly volatile, cerebral, communicative planets in their own signs of rulership -- and the mental fireworks will shower new concepts into your life like sparklers on the 4th of July.

The stressful side of this square energy comes from a definite nervous tension that marks all of these planets and signs, even under the best conditions. You may be blessed with more brilliant ideas than you can handle. A definite sense of urgency may accompany their implementation. Insomnia ... from the stress of this combination is possible, and if you have tendencies toward this in the first place, it may be aggravated by this energy.

You also may speak first and engage the brain later -- which is a notorious problem with this square. Not that you'll necessarily say stupid things, or untrue things ... just things you wish you'd thought twice about announcing -- or revealing. The lightning fast responses contained in this energy now may make this a special hazard.

You also need to be especially careful driving for the next couple of weeks. This obsession with speed and quickness translates very easily into a brick-foot on the accelerator and making sudden moves without benefit of a turn signal. Everyone is feeling pushed and impulsive now ... and distracted by all the activity as well, and may be paying more attention to the conversations and movies in their minds than to conditions on the roads and highways. Just remember: Caution pays ... every chance you get.

But for those of us who love playing with the acrobatics of thought ... on a high wire without a net, this can be a most exhilarating bit of fun. Have a good time.

What Does Mercury Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> In mythology, Mercury was the winged messenger of the Gods. -- Your mind -- at work and play -- In Astrology, Mercury represents your conscious, rational mind. It tells a lot about your intellectual self; your ability to study, learn, analyze, communicate and work with information.

Mercury in General -- Your Inner Selves of Learning and Work ---> Learning stuff, using your mind and putting it to work -- Like Venus, your Mercury energy describes two inner selves. One manages your mind and all its talents; the other is in charge of the work you do ... the ways you use your skills and abilities to help others and build the kind of life your want for yourself. Again, as with Venus, these are usually reduced to the basic categories of "mind" and "work," but they also include whole subdivisions of behavior and talents.

Mercury and the Miracle of the Mind -- Astrology's Search for Intelligent Life ---> As an Astrologer I see both the mundaneness of common knowledge -- handling the basic facts of awareness and everyday rituals -- and a touch of miracles in Mercury.

Mercury Retrograde -- Rethinking Your Present Direction ---> In the territory of the mind -- When Mercury is retrograde (Mercury Rx -- in shorthand), it is a time of rethinking, refocusing and re-communicating. In Astrology, Mercury represents your intellect; your mental focus; your mind and how you use its assets.

When Mercury is in Taurus -- Your Intellectual Self in the -- Sign of Patience and Determination ---> Taurus is the Spring Earth Sign -- Mellowing out -- When Mercury is in Taurus, ideas and attitudes are stable, pleasant, patient and concerned with long-range planning. Thinking shows affection, compassion, dependability, devotion, loyalty, generosity and is concerned with "being nice." This energy is composed, calm, placid, and highly opinionated.
