Uranus's nature has a lot to do with Mercury's. I still sort of think Mercury is malefic but too fast to normally have any lasting damaging effects. Really, its effects are felt most beneficially in the same was as the malefics' effects are, not as the benefics' or even "neutral" Sun's and Moon's.

Some other people when I was a beginner: "All of your planets are weak except the very strong Moon and moderate Mercury and Venus."
Me now: My chart is ruled by "weak" Saturn, not the Moon...
