Mercury Opposition Ascendant

Mercury Aspects

Mercury represents our rational mind and is the planet of everyday expression and communication. It signifies our curiosity and what areas of life we find mentally appealing and stimulating. It analyzes and organises and defines the way we interact with others. Mercury in your chart reveals how you get your point across and in what style.

Mercury Opposition Ascendant


The Opposition between Mercury and your Ascendant indicates that you are a good listener. You listen carefully to the opinions of others before expressing your own. Often, however, the opinions you express will not be your own, but rather a reflection of who you’ve been spending time with recently.
Your mind is sharper and more creative when you have a partner you can bounce your thoughts and ideas off. In your personal relationships, your thoughts are reflected by your partner, who serves as a mirror giving you a different perspective.
You tend to pick up ideas and thoughts from others so much that you may not be taken seriously as someone has thoughts of your own. You want to be liked and therefore normally change your mind and opinions depending on whose company you are with.
For further development you need to ask yourself what it is that you really think, regardless of who you’re around. Start with your core values and build up from there.
Stay open to other’s opinions, but let them interact with your own and watch both morph accordingly. It’s necessary for you to get past the fear of rejection you feel of daring to truly be yourself.
You are, at the same time, rather independent and will not allow anyone to restrict your freedom, but you love to talk things out before arriving at a decision. Conversations with you are always stimulating and lively. A career where communication is important such as sales, management and marketing could be quite successful for you as your talent for conversation will benefit you greatly.
