The Sun conjunct Mercury

The Sun conjunct Mercury boosts your intellect & sharpens the way you use your mind. It may be temporary, but it's a good first-hand experience on what's possible when everything comes together with power & confidence.

When the Sun conjuncts Mercury, you have exceptional energy & communication skills. You're good at getting your points across, stating your position & expressing your ideas, opinions & beliefs in ways others will respect.

You believe you have important things to say & share, & there's lots of ego invested in both doing exactly that & believing that you can. These intellectual projects -- & the reasoning & analysis you put into them -- show the world who you really are & you know it. It's an excellent time to plan, study, do research, "get your facts straight" -- & offer them in ways others can understand, use & admire.

You take dissent & disagreement very personally. You take this as a personal affront, reacting as if it calls your worth into question ... which in your mind, it does. It's hard to overstate just how closely you identify with your beliefs & opinions & your perspective on the world.

Your thoughts are clear, logical & focused. You're good at defining what you want & where you stand -- if only temporarily. This aspect forms only when Mercury is about to turn retrograde, recently out of retrograde or during the retrograde period itself. Of course, Mercury Retrograde is a time of rethinking your direction on some interests related to the horoscope house where the conjunct forms.

So your conviction on your plans & decisions is anything from ironic to ridiculous. But there it is anyway. Human nature. The fact that you're busy changing your mind -- for better or worse -- keeps life interesting.

Sun Conjunct Mercury

Mercury conjuncts the Sun fairly often -- several times a year -- because of its retrograde cycle ... & it IS Mercury doing the work, making the move, forming the conjunction, despite the Astrological protocol of listing the Sun first in the description. Mercury is far more mobile than the Sun, surpassed only by the Moon -- which seems pretty free-wheeling compared to any other cosmic citizen in the horoscope.

The Moon is like a pesky gnat, swirling constantly in a circle around the Earth & Sun. Mercury is more like a bumblebee on a leash, constantly there, but he only gets so far before he gets yanked back to a connection with his home-base, the Sun, in whatever Zodiac sign is onstage at the moment. It's an interesting metaphor for how much you & your mind are linked in partnership as you navigate Life together.

Sun Conjunct Mercury

When the Sun conjuncts Mercury in a horoscope, it unites the power of the ego & sense of self (Sun energy) with the power of the mind & intellect (Mercury energy.) For those who love to work & play in the landscape of the mind & imagination, it's always exciting.

Regardless of the sign where the conjunction forms, there's an abundance of Gemini & Virgo energy, too. The "extra sign" just adds extra color. (Mercury rules both Gemini & Virgo. That's why this happens, this feeling of "lots to learn" & "lots of work to do.") Also, Gemini & Virgo aren't all that compatible. So, there's stress along with the gift. (It's always something, huh?)

Sun conjunct Mercury

Mercury represents communication, thinking patterns & attitudes, rationality & reasoning, your early formal education, your "street smarts," & your ability to understand & work with information through speaking, writing & sharing. The Sun represents your ego, your self-identity, your spiritual center. So this energy is a merger between your Intellectual Self & your Essential Self.

When these two get together, it highlights thinking, communicating, reading & writing, talking & learning. This energy urges you to find information & put it to work. It's a time to study, do research, talk things over with the people around you. Organize your beliefs & opinions & then express yourself. Spoken & written language are unique human skills. Step up & use them.

Sun conjunct Mercury
In Scorpio

When Mercury Rx moves behind the Sun -- which happens during every retrograde cycle, it brings a shift to your intellectual life. Your imagination becomes more active. Speculation increases. You are less open with your remarks, opinions & observations. You keep these more to yourself. You don't talk as much or as freely.

You consider your writing more private -- and may put more in notes to yourself & in any journal-work you do than in letters or emails you share with anyone else. So Mercury behind the Sun begins a time of more introversion. Your thoughts are more theoretical, your decisions more tentative. You're more skeptical of the information you find & what others say.

Sun conjunct Mercury

The Sun conjunct to Mercury generates a lot of intellectual energy, so much you may have trouble turning your mind off as it churns out ideas, thoughts, questions & other things to consider. Or you may be so overwhelmed by all the information & reactions coming at you it's hard to think at all. Your mind may be racing, but grabbing one single thought long enough to develop it is more than you can manage.

If you're trying to manage this kind of restlessness & churning chaos, pause. Be still. Ground yourself. Take all the time you need. Breathe. Meditate. Find your center. The time you take to pull yourself together & quiet your thoughts will compensate you far more than trying to push things -- & yourself -- to keep up this pace. That's simply exhausting.

Sun Conjunct Mercury

It's a simple coincidence or fact of physics and "space geology" that Mercury and the Sun are so closely bound together. They are constantly positioned as if the Sun had Mercury on a physical leash. Mercury may roam around, back and forth in his retrograde cycle, but he is never more than 28° away from the Sun. So he's either in the same Zodiac sign the Sun occupies, or the sign just before or after.

That says something symbolic about how closely you and your mind are linked -- in reality. The only major aspect the Sun and Mercury can form with each other is the conjunction. Your mind (as in, Mercury) is never far afield from your sense of yourself, your awareness of who you are (as in, the Sun.) Everything that shapes your definition of reality is filtered through this lens, this perspective, this arrangement.
