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 Sextile Midheaven


As you go through life, you tend to stay in touch with your own and other people's inner feelings and psychological currents. Your rational mind is more influenced than most by feelings and intuitions, which deepen your understanding of the world. It is often, however, not easy to tell people about what you see so clearly.
People may think of you as somewhat reserved and secretive. You are not trying to be mysterious, but you have already learned that if you don't choose your words carefully, taking the time necessary to speak as sincerely as possible, others will misunderstand you, with some unpleasant results. It may take time before your ability to express yourself catches up with what you already know intuitively.
As you like to examine secrets, you are attracted to mysteries and puzzles. In fact, you may build up your own secret universe to wander around in, not just for idle play but as a way to express your creative insights.
You use your mind to help understand human nature. You are a natural psychologist, and developing the abilities to communicate your ideas in speaking or writing will serve you well.
You will spend a lot of time in your head planning and arranging your future. Instead of falling into a career by accident, you are more likely to work out everything you must do to get where you want to go. You are able to study hard to achieve your ambition, and you should be a good student in any subject that engages your passions.
