Moon Mercury Aspects ☾☿

The moon is our everyday, habitual self – who we are when we are in our comfort zone, when we act naturally and our “inner child” can come out. It has to do with emotions, gut feelings and intuition. Basically, it’s a major determiner in who we are and how we act.

Mercury is our logical mind and intellect. This planet is associated with communication, connection, interaction, language, and facts.

When the moon and Mercury form an aspect, it shows that a person will likely live in their heads a lot. Thoughts and feelings, facts and intuition will be combined – either in constructive or destructive ways, depending strongly of the sign and house placement of both planets and the nature of the aspect.

These people are likely to read or write on a daily basis and keeping a diary or journal is also common (so are blogging and vlogging). All ways of capturing memories with words or technology, such as photography, videomaking, or scrapbooking, will appeal to them. They also like emojis and emoticons because it’s a good way to show emotion and built a more humane connection over text. While others go comfort shopping for clothes or food, these people find comfort in buying stationary or books. They also feel at home in bookstores and libraries.

Their affinity towards reading and writing probably stems from their inability to know how they feel until it has been put into words – either in their private journal, in a conversation, or in a quote or book written by someone else. Heart and mind being so closely interwoven can be quite confusing.

It does, however, also give them a great intuitive understanding of situations and people and a good common sense. These individuals typically have great emotional intelligence. Actually dealing with feelings, talking about them, or comforting others, can be hard, though. Those with Moon Mercury aspects tend to rationalize their feelings and avoid talking about emotional or otherwise uncomfortable topics. When nurturing and comforting others, they usually do so by giving sound advice or using logical reasoning. They are either really good or really lousy listeners - their whole heart is in a conversation, or their head is up in the clouds.

Rather than having a mind that works mathematically, these individuals have a talent for understanding the symbolism behind fairytales and mythology or interpreting poetry. They may also get grammar and spelling right intuitively and pick up languages naturally. At their core, they are curious, clever, and quick-witted. They are creative in coming up with solutions to everyday problems.

Although their intuition can be a talent and a strength, as described above, their emotions can also get in the way of rational thinking. They can be rather na├»ve and immature in their thinking. They’re prone to confusing intuition with facts and simply assuming that what their guts tell them is a truism (this may actually be the case, sometimes, though). Getting emotionally involved in thinking and reasoning can cause them to have a strong personal bias and to be unable to see past their own circumstances. They may even bend facts so that they’re comfortable with them or ignore information which does not support their opinion.

In conversations, they can be rather shy and sensitive to harsh words. They are easily hurt when their thoughts and opinions are disagreed with and they take it quite personally.

With a Moon Mercury Conjunction, there is a blending, a unity, of heart and mind. These people are especially intuitive and have a strong common sense, or what some call street-smarts. They react rationally and consider both logical thinking and intuitive feeling in their decision-making. They are naturally clever and curious but have a hard time keeping thinking and feeling separate, which is why they tend to rationalize their feelings.

In a Moon Mercury Square, the two energies block each other. This may result in not being able to talk about emotions and staying within a small comfort zone in conversation. They can also be quite sensitive and shy in conversations and perceive differing opinions as a personal attack. When their ideas are rejected, they take it to heart and may react insensitively. In general, subjectivity interferes with rational thinking, so they are quite biased and also have a tendency towards daydreaming and not being able to listen attentively. There is however, also a strong thirst for knowledge that may be explored in reading, writing, or conversation.

With a Moon Mercury Opposition, there is a constant back-and-forth of thoughts and feelings. Although it may feel like a dispute at times, the dialogue between them may also turn out to be productive: You can weigh up rational thought and intuitive feeling equally.

When there is a Moon Mercury Trine or Sextile, the positive aspects of this combination (being a good conversationalist and/or writer and quick-witted, picking up new skills naturally) will dominate. However, these positive aspects can be lazy, too, so the strengths may fail to be recognized as such. With the trine, especially, there may be a tendency towards gossiping and being a chatterbox.

Mars Jupiter Aspects ♂♃

Aspects between Mars and Jupiter bring lots of energy and enthusiasm. These people are very driven to the point of being hyperactive. They are very motivated, energetic, and enthusiastic.
They do not shy away from confrontation. Actually, they can come on more strongly than they intended. They may surprise themselves, because they can be so aggressive, direct, and proactive.
Their energy levels are off the charts and they believe in whatever they are doing so they openly promote themselves and can be rather pushy.
They don't quite know what's enough and when to stop.
These people may also overextend themselves and end up depleting all their energy at once.

Mars-Jupiter is really good at motivating others or inspiring them to take action.
Since Jupiter is the guru and Mars is the warrior, this combination is kind of like the Nike slogan "Just do it."
Taking inspired actions and acting on your beliefs or believing in what you do is the biggest strength of this aspect. Because they have so much faith in themselves, what they do often turns out well and inspires others.
These are the people you will find fighting for justice and defending morals, too.

With their faith in winning and expectation of victory comes great risk-taking, too.
The Mars-Jupiter person can be somewhat of a gambler, and often successfully so.
Being daring often leads to them becoming lucky (unless Jupiter is somehow debilitated in the chart).
They will spontaneously say yes to new opportunities or create them themselves.
Because of their optimism, they never stop standing up after falling down - they never lose their good spirits or give up on something they want to achieve.

"What is defeat? Nothing but education; Nothing but the first step to something better." 
Bruce Lee (Mars opposite Jupiter)

Being unable to accept defeat can, however, also be a weak point of this aspect.
The Mars-Jupiter individual is a really bad loser, simply because they won't even accept being a loser.
They will just try again until they win and unless they do, it was just "practice" or somehow "unfair".
There is an exaggerated need to prove one's potency and masculinity. Even the women with this placement will be really competitive and have a need to show their strength.
They're very reactive to dares and hate to be seen as cowards so they tend to push themselves towards being overly reckless and brave.

Since Mars also has to do with irritability, people with this aspect also typically have an abundance of pet peeves - it's really easy to agitate them and for them to get annoyed or lose their patience.
Since their battles are fought in the realm of beliefs and worldviews, they will often attack other people's beliefs or feel attacked once people express differing worldviews.
Because they connect personal belief systems with fights and confrontations, they may either avoid the topic or actively seek out the discussions - usually depending on whether the chart is more pronounced on positive or negative signs.
Either way, they'll usually be quite self-righteous and will defend their own beliefs, not wanting to reconsider them or admit that the other person has a valid point.

Remember: You can do anything. If you believe.
