Mercury Conjunct Pluto

When Mercury conjuncts Pluto, serious things are on your mind. Topics & discoveries have been brewing for a while, & when Mercury & Pluto connect, here's the place where questions find answers, hidden information is revealed & facts come together to make sense -- finally. So, Mercury conjunct Pluto marks a break-through moment in how you think, what you believe, how you see Life & your place in it.

This aspect forms at least once a year, depending on what Mercury is doing with his back-&-forth retrograde moment. It's a significant alliance, but clearly some of these "moments of truth" will be more remarkable than others. Whether it jangles placements in your own horoscope is one factor. Sometimes admitting or proving facts you have long suspected makes the relief memorable. Honesty does that.

Mercury in Astrology: Basic Stuff | Quick Notes on Mercury

Still, your ability now to separate facts from fantasy & especially truth from lies ... or cover-ups, dissembling or denial carries a strange feeling of change. Once the foundations of reality are different ... nothing is the same. Objectively, everything may be exactly as it was ... as it always has been, but your engagement with it is forever altered. So is your path forward. So is the story you tell yourself. Life moves in new directions.

These truths can burst forth when you least expect them ... when you're distracted, lost in your own fictions or looking in another direction entirely. Pluto is famous for that. Rumbling from below ground clutching new dimensions of reality in his grip. New dimensions that bring new options -- & force new choices. Life renews itself this way, & this is only one way.

Light Reading & Open Articles

When You Know Your Own Mind -- Mercury's role in your horoscope ---> What does your Mercury tell? ---> As you investigate Astrology & harvest the wisdom it offers on the human experience, you move from the ubiquitous information on Sun and Sun Sign energy ... into the misty & mysterious realms of the Moon and its meaning. From there, you meet Mercury -- the symbol of the mind, the consciousness, the intellect. It's the most distinctive feature that separates humankind from Life's other sentient beings.

Sciency Stuff About Mercury -- Fun things to know -- about Mercury the planet ---> All in a day's work ---> * In our Solar System, Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun. Because of this proximity it is not easy to see except at twilight. Mercury also orbits the Sun so quickly, early astronomers believed it was actually two different stars -- one which appeared in the morning and another in the evening. * A year on Mercury is only 88 days. (This is the time it takes Mercury to circle the Sun once.)

* Mercury in Your Natal Chart -- Fore, Aft and Center ---> Yellow is a Mercury color! ---> Metaphor for the mind ---> Mercury, named for the Roman god of commerce, communication and messages, has come to symbolize in Astrology, the way a Native employs his mind, wit, charm, and intellect. It describes the way he communicates his thoughts, views, and opinions, and the way he acquires ... and applies ... the knowledge and information he uses to manage his life.

* 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 depicts your capacity to form ideas and opinions, the way you deal with facts, and the way you process data.

* Mercury -- Ruler of Gemini -- Ruler of Virgo ---> Yellow is a Mercury color! ---> The metaphor for your mind ---> Mercury, quick, intense, lively and highly mobile -- racing its way around the Sun faster than any of the other known planets, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's mental and communications skills, the intellectual components of his personality, the inner self that deals with physical movement, informational exchange, discrimination, learning and analysis.


More about Mercury

* Mercury: Symbol of Your Intellectual Self ---> Yellow is a Mercury color ---> Your mind, intellectual energy & assets ---> Mercury in Astrology is the symbol for your conscious mind with its amazing array of accessories and gifts. That's the short answer to the question, "What does Mercury represent?" ... because the Sun, Moon & all the known planets have distinct meanings in Astrology. But like most quick short answers, this one is incomplete. Mercury doesn't just symbolize your mind ....

* My Notes About Mercury -- A comprehensive list -- of random things about Mercury -- in no particular order ---> Yellow is a Mercury color!! ---> The symbol of your mind ... your intellect ---> * Mercury is Astrology's symbol for your intellect, your conscious mind. It's that wondrous, mysterious part of you that deals in sensory messages -- the experience and meaning you get from the things you see, hear, taste, touch and smell.

* Mercury in General -- What Mercury in Astrology Means -- 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," ....

From EDA: Mercury -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology December 9, 2020 Mercury ---> I went looking tonight to see what I'd written on the planet Mercury for this feature. (Never mind why. I just did.) Turns out the answer is "not much," so let's correct that. The Sun and the Moon get plenty of attention, & Mercury is just as important. All the planets are, actually. Each one is significant & deserves his time in the spotlight. I declare tonight, it's Mercury's turn.

* Mercury ... and the Miracle of the Mind -- Astrology's Search for Intelligent Life ---> Yellow is a Mercury color! ---> Your mind makes you special ---> 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. In Astrology, this planet named for the winged messenger of the gods represents your conscious human mind, the part of you that makes you a member of the most intelligent species on the planet, the part of you that makes you human -- and sometimes fallible.
