Mercury Sextile: The work of thought is effective in the boundaries between what a person does not understand and what he cannot wrinkle in principle. Mercury Sextile gives the Planet the opportunity to constructively interact with the principle of thinking. The statement “the mind is the head for everything” is both a varnishing of reality and its falsification; however, in the sphere of action of the Planet, sextile will provide a person with various possibilities of rational understanding and tactful mental control. The Sextile of Mercury does not give an instant and easy superficial rational understanding of the principle of the Planet, which is characteristic of trine, but makes constructive efforts aimed at comprehending it, and, with a certain amount of work, a person reaches a level where his understanding does not profane the principle of the Planet, but gives him on the contrary, new directions of development. Here, when interpreting, it is important to pay attention to which planet is stronger in sextile. If Mercury is stronger, then a person will be tempted, only having begun to understand the problem, to consider his first (or second) thoughts sufficient and effective and to harshly suppress the principle of the Planet by them, eventually accepting it with great distortions, and the mental control of the Planet will turn out to be too rough … If the Planet is stronger in sextile, then a person will be tempted to subordinate his thinking to its principle, and then rational understanding will be biased, which interferes with the objectivity of assessments, and mental control is too weak. In any case, a person will feel the general need for mental development in the areas ruled by the Planet. Development gives great opportunities for rationalization in the spheres of influence of the Planet, subtlety and flexibility of rational thinking, the boundaries of competence of which a person will feel well. Good for teachers in areas related to the Planet, since this person will be able to give students ample opportunities to master the principle of the Planet, forcing their rational mind to work – a very effective teaching tool. On the contrary, a lack of elaboration, a persistent unwillingness to use rational thinking to work with the principle of the Planet, leads a person to a loss of faith in himself, his abilities and capabilities, mental depression and possible blows of fate in the relevant areas. Chiron Sextile: Why are the hidden capabilities of a person so carefully hidden from him? They are afraid that they will be sold into slavery. The Chiron Sextile gives a person the possibility of a non-standard and even almost implausible expansion of the Planet principle, but it is often not easy to guess about this (and even more so to implement). The manifestation of this aspect may look like incomprehensible or incomprehensible circumstances in the spheres ruled by the Planet, which is worth a certain amount of work to understand, but the results will give an unexpected understanding or non-standard vision of the corresponding situation, which then acquires an inner meaning. At a low level of elaboration, the Chiron sextile provides imaginary opportunities for expansion and exits from the dead ends of development associated with the principle of the Planet, which plunge a naive, trusting and hoping for quick success of a person into chaos and internal confusion. Chiron teaches to work outside the box, reliably, practically, and most importantly, solving internal problems first and only then external ones. A person can learn all this if he can understand that the opportunities offered to him by the sextile of Chiron require not only honest work, but also a non-standard approach, and possibly parting with some part of the usual picture of the world. In general, this is a very promising aspect that gives a person the opportunity to understand the complex and deeply hidden mysteries of his subconscious, to highlight and reliably bring into consciousness programs that seem completely unattainable, which sometimes leads to a transition to a qualitatively new level in the spheres controlled by the Planet. The study of sextile makes it possible not only to choose completely original ways of developing the Planetary Principle, but also to offer them to others.
