Conjunction Sun – Mercury


(Natal Sun → Natal Mercury)

S.V. Shestopalov. Aspects of the planets

Mercury never moves further than 28 ° from the Sun, so the aspect that it can form with the Sun is conjunction. There are two types of conjunction of the Sun with Mercury, depending on the orb of this conjunction: – the orb of the conjunction is less than 2 ° or more than 8 °. The qualities of this connection are mental acuity, activity, mobility, activity, contact, sociability, enterprise, quick mind, intuitive, adaptive, observant mind, good assimilation of information, memory. – connection orb in the range from 2 ° to 5 °. The qualities of this compound are reflectivity, subjectivity, anxiety, nervousness, randomness, verbosity, inconsistency, illogicality, speech defects. The positive side is the depth of thought, richness of associations, observation, attention, encyclopedia.

Francis Sakoyan. Aspects of

Creative forces and activity in the spheres of Mercury, new ideas, work, friendship. The tendency to carry out ideas, make decisions with willpower. It interferes with objectively looking at oneself, since the I is compared with the mind, it is difficult to look at oneself from the outside. Great spiritual strength and energy. If the connection is within 1 / 2-4 degrees – Mercury burned out: mental connections are oversaturated with solar energy, spiritual disconnection occurs. In the heart of the Sun – it gives the same difficulties as when the wave pattern is completely likened, the solar energy is changed by Mercury and turns out to be ideal for frequent thinking – the will becomes an instrument for spiritual aspirations, this position gives great intellectual abilities, especially if the union in Gemini, Virgo, Aquarius , Libra.

Absalom Underwater. Aspects of

Conjunction of the Sun: He called himself a load – climb into the back. The conjunction of the Planet with the Sun gives its manifestations a shade of imperative – at a high level of elaboration of the aspect. At a low level, the imperative relates more to the need to work out the Planet. The sun illuminates the lower manifestations of its principle and actualizes them, mainly by direct pressure. At a low level of elaboration of the Sun, it acts through rigid imperatives that it imposes on the Planet, suppressing its creativity and forcing its principle to manifest itself in a very narrowly outlined framework, in which it, in principle, cannot fit; excessive internal tension and explosion arise, and the creativity of the Absolute manifests itself both in the moment and nature of the explosion (unpredictable in advance), and in the shape and trajectories of the debris. If the connection is not worked out, but stands harmoniously, these explosions will be more dangerous for others, and the creative principle of the Planet will manifest itself only on the path of rigidly selfish consumption in areas corresponding to its principle. For example, the unprocessed connection of the Sun with Mars gives a large and useless activity, which, however, seems extremely important and useful to the person himself, and on the other hand, the ability to completely devour someone else’s energy, leaving the other person literally without strength and even a hint of gratitude. The study of the connection (and the Sun) will give a switch to a higher egregor, when the solar initiative is not in the order of a rigid order, but as an indication of the desired direction of activity, and most importantly, attention. Then the interaction of the Sun with the Planet is greatly facilitated, and the Planet receives from the Sun a kind of weak magnetization, which serves for orientation in difficult (for the Planet) conditions, when the optimal choice is not obvious. Conjunction of Mercury: Not only is the absence of thought disturbing, but also in many cases its presence. Mercury gives the Planet in conjunction with it a strong mental coloring, even when it is completely unnecessary and undesirable for a person; for example, during the conjunction of Mercury with Venus, there will be so much calculation and sanity in a love relationship that any immediate feeling and living sensation will live very shortly, especially if Mercury is stronger than Venus. Unfortunately, the mental coloration is not identical to the mind, since most often it comes down to the widespread flat ideas and cliches of public consciousness and subconsciousness, which will actively influence the principle of the Planet, greatly schematizing and profaning it. A person will, of course, feel this, but all his attempts to get rid of such deadening (each time in its own way) influence of Mercury on the Planet by expanding the sphere of its manifestations (for example, the search for new lovers in the case of Venus) are doomed to failure, since the mind, although rude, but flexible, and can adapt and somehow simulate any phenomenon. The elaboration of the connection goes first of all through the study of Mercury, that is, the awareness of the role and meaning of mental activity as giving a general direction to energy flows and planetary principles, but not replacing them. Here, the elaboration is difficult, since it requires a restructuring of thinking, rejection of heavy, straightforward social clichés and a transition to work with lighter and more flexible thought forms capable of adequate interaction with the principle of the Planet. For example, the conjunction of Mercury with Mars with strong Mercury at a low level of elaboration gives not a person, but practically a robot, which must first simulate any active action in the head, completely unable to trust the feeling and logic of its direct energetic manifestations. Working out the aspect gives great creative abilities, manifested in the form of subtle and inventive indirect mental control of the principle of the Planet in those moments when it is necessary.

Het Monster. Aspects of

Activity in the sphere of Mercury – new ideas, work, friendship. Inability to objectively evaluate oneself. If the connection is in Gemini, Aquarius and Libra – great intellectual abilities. All efforts are usually crowned with success, although there are often obstacles from the strong. Burnt out Mercury – subjective thinking, stubbornness, often speech disorders. “Spacious” connection (approx. 10) – acuity of mind and speech, talent in language, writing. Mercury behind the Sun – always difficulties with work, with public service, and with an empty or damaged X house, any career is excluded, there will be no sense in service.

Catherine Aubier. Astrological Dictionary

Favorably Aspected Connection: Combination of Consciousness and Discretion; self-affirmation of the individual in intellectual communication, exchange of ideas. Poorly aspected connection: the elements of instability, nervousness, suggestibility. Note that in the astrological tradition about Mercury in conjunction with the Sun they also say that it is “burned” by the Sun. This should be interpreted as follows: the closer to the Sun is Mercury, the more one’s own “I” overshadows the mental faculties; this. element of the subjective. Mercury, located far from the Sun (in semi-sextile, i.e. 30 ° aspect), on the contrary, is an indicator of objectivity.

Various sources for a child’s horoscope

The child can be very sensitive to criticism and attacks from other people. It is difficult for him to separate the transmission of feelings and thoughts from his ego. It can be a problem if he does not learn to distinguish between his ideas and his personality. If he makes a mistake at school, he may think that the mistake shows him in a bad light, and because of this, he may feel inferior. He needs to be considered smart. Speaking in front of an audience, participating in discussions, or writing would be most useful in this regard.
