Re: Intelligence

For example, take a look at the chart of a brilliant and famous astrologer, Reinhold Ebertin (attached).

He has Mercury in Pisces. However, what else is that Mercury doing? Mercury's dispositor is Jupiter, placed in Capricorn on the Capricorn ascendant, whose dispositor is Saturn, also in Capricorn in Domicile. Mercury is also widely trine the MC and sextile Saturn, reinforcing the Mercury/Saturn connection. Mercury is also closely square Pluto, and part of his legacy is that some seem him as rather harsh and pessimistic for their tastes.

One can't just go by a single position in ANY chart and make a judgement on it in stasis, "cookbook astrologers" notwithstanding.
