Moon Sesquiquadrate Mercury
The Sesquiquadrate aspect between your Moon and your Mercury means your feelings often dominate your reason. You have trouble differentiating the logic of an argument from how its conclusion makes you feel, likewise for differentiating facts from the implications of those facts. These are habits of mind that have you often reacting against things that at their core are more or less reasonable.
All this emotional coloring you apply to the world does, however, bring you some benefits. First of all, it enhances your memory. You have a great mind for faces and names, and when you emotionally connect with a song, you remember it forever. Second of all, it makes you quite creative, as all that comes from you is loaded with heart and color, and you have a strong intuitive sense of aesthetic beauty.
The part of self-expression where you are lacking is the editing. You get bored reviewing your creations and improving them, you just want to go with the creative flow and let it do what it naturally does. Such an approach is great for improv comedy, but most other artists need a later editing stage. They need to apply a hard, critical eye to their work and ruthlessly delete and alter until what they left with is beautiful, well-rounded and balanced.
You're strongly affected by what’s going on around you, and feel affected when the vibes in a social situation aren’t right. The common social good always concerns you, but you are suspicious of institutional and political ideas for improving it. You prefer a more direct approach, helping the people right in front of you, without any need for middlemen. Psychology interests you a lot, but not the academic, university kind.
As you learn more about yourself, you will discover how let your intuitive, creative nature flow while giving your rational mind the space it deserves to be a responsible guide in your life.
