Mercury Aspects

Mercury symbolizes our intellectual and communicative nature. It governs two vital aspects of our lives: communication and cognition. Mercury is the celestial body that influences how we think, process information, and express ourselves verbally and in writing. In our astrological charts, Mercury sheds light on our communication style, the way we learn, and how we convey our thoughts and ideas to the world.

Mercury Inconjunct Pluto

The inconjunct can give you a harshness of temperament and expression, where your direct, blunt style can often create conflict and confrontation between yourself and others. Even though you prefer to reflect yourself as one capable of handling the 'real situation', you tend to lack a sensitivity towards possible reactions to your potentially penetrating insights. You rarely 'wrap' them up in socially acceptable packages for consumption but offer them raw.
There is a tendency to try to manipulate and mold any partner so that he or she conforms to your point of view; and often your views become intolerant and fixed, allowing little space for flexibility or change to occur naturally. Sometimes, in an effort to achieve your own will, you rely upon your strong willpower to dominate others. Sometimes this can succeed, but you are equally liable to apply it incorrectly through a lack of proportion and through insensitivity, creating more damage to your aims and others than you intended.
Mentally, you require more self-discipline and understanding to make more positive use of your abilities of penetrative insight; in particular, the way in which you present yourself to others may need to be moderated. More control regarding your thoughts and words can help to avoid any controversy and unnecessary conflict with others, and help a redirection of your powers of insight inward, so that you can observe how you are projecting those negative shadow qualities out onto others in the world when these qualities should be being internally transformed and the energies released for positive applications.
