Moon Trine Mercury
The trine indicates an opportunity to reconcile the Moon's instinctive, emotional energies with the mental and communicative energies of Mercury. You should experience few direct conflicts between emotional messages and mental messages. A channel exists between the conscious and unconscious personality; yet these do not often pull you in different directions or amplify stress and psychological conflicts. In order to determine your reactions to experiences, you will need to evaluate emotions and feelings; and this underpins your Mercurial intellect. You approach life with a relatively open heart and mind and see all experience as contributing to self-development. Even though your Moon may resist life's sometimes harsh lessons, you can see the positive value that can emerge form difficult times. Through this attitude and heightened sensitivity, you can acquire insight in addition to knowledge, particularly when perceiving the interconnectedness of information and new ways of using it. This provides a new foundation for ongoing creative expression. You can be inspired by a desire to utilize natural talents and abilities for social benefit; and your 'common sense' reflects a progressive, optimistic attitude, yet one which is not overly idealistic or blind to life's realities. You recognize that all is not either light or darkness, but that much of life exists in the shadow or gray area between. Instead of dwelling on the negative, you prefer to look toward more positive future possibilities, hoping to ensure that hard-won lessons from previous experience are applied when dealing with present situations. Experiences from the past can serve as stepping-stones taking you progressively onward. In social and intimate family relationships, you will be appreciated for your sympathetic understanding. You have genuine concern and compassion for others, and a love of fairness and equality of opportunity. You help others less fortunate than yourself, and those who are passing through traumatic times of life disruption. Emotional anxieties are usually kept hidden, although, in your sharing and helping others, your previous experiences and lessons may be deliberately mentioned if they serve to support or illuminate problems. You are not the type, however, to unload any current difficulties onto the shoulders of others. Reason and logic are strong personality components, although these are colored by your instinctive emotional valuations of people, situations, and circumstances, forming a uniquely personal viewpoint.
