Hey Passiflora 😊 thanks for your thoughts.

For me, Iím doing this thread to understand certain things as Iím delving deeper into astrology and my own chart really so looking at what others see in their chart is interesting.
What makes you that way if not mercury due to what you have mentioned?

Thatís not necessarily what a traditional reader would expect from a retrograde, detrimented mercury, especially one receiving a square from Saturn. The retrograde makes the square temporarily separating, interestingly - not sure if that has any effect.
But again, on that square ... my life experiences are somewhat unusual, and Iím a relatively private person. I do a pretty good job of seemingly looking like an open book which protects my privacy. The combination of unusual life experiences and a desire for privacy means I donít really open up except to spirits who seem kindred. With chatting around, I usually disagree with whatever the trend is, so staying quiet is the alternative to being either openly disapproving or passionately preachy or the middle way of opening up.
Thatís interesting. I wonder if communication is much more than mercury then. My merc is intercepted. I can go quiet depending on the environment almost suppressed in communication but only by my doing if I, say, donít like the environment or energy around me. Or if I know thereís no point and only I will get wound up from the situation. Other timeís I need to have my say otherwise my stomach will be in knots almost painful lol
Which house is your mercury in?

What sign / house is yours in, what aspects does it make?
So my mercury is 29 degrees sag. I have Venus and Neptune there too. All in 3rd house. Due to interception I have Uranus in Scorpio in 3rd.

Mercury connects sun and is combust so Iíve been told.
Moon in leo and Chiron in Taurus Sesquiquadrate mercury
Mercury opposition mc cancer
Mercury square ascendant libra
Jupiter is in libra

I hate it when people talk shite and can see when they are full of it

Is there anything that is challenging you specifically about it, that you are trying to work out? It sounds like your mercury is the most angular planet. Unless that distinction goes to sun, in which case sun makes similar aspects as listed above? Also is mercury last over Venus or Uranus?

Not specifically just good to know others insights about their own and how it all gets interpreted.
Venus is in sag 8degrees Neptune is 22 degrees and Uranus is In Scorpio at 28 degrees.
Sun is in cap at 3 degrees in 4th.
I feel my communication isnít in a set way. For example I know some people are consistent in the way they communicate but Iím forever changing and growing. I can be one thing and then another. Also sometimes I want to be more open. My body language can Be louder than me lol it says it all of Iím pissed off lol

Re: Mercury - what is your communication style and why

My Mercury is in the 9th and Pisces. They tend to display high intelligence and still, they are prone to mental impairments. I happen to have mild autism and these behavioral traits are common among people in the autism spectrum.

Any aspects to Mars or Jup? That is often common with people that have autism.
I don't think having Merc in the 9th or in Pisces per se has anything to do with autism.

Re: Mercury - what is your communication style and why

I have Mercury @24 Libra. To be fair it gets, complicated, by aspects. My Scorpio Asc @24, my Uranus @ 24, my Jupiter @25. Thay always affect each other.

I am pretty straight forward, to the point. I don't mince words. I am okay with people disagreeing with me, rather used to it. I am not easily swayed by opinion, I am a good listener, I don't feel I have to agree with people for just listening. I do try to be fair, if others aren't fair, well, Scorpio Ascending takes care of that >>>>.

I like that!

As for me, I am mercury in Leo. Just like with all fire-sign mercury, I am straightforward. No hidden agenda, no mincing of words. For me, communication is a matter of coupling my inner world to my mouth and just letting everything loose. But I have my quiet, reserved moments, too, which I attribute to my Pisces ascendant.

Square to ascendant can provoke the feeling of discomfort, like your body language giving away stuff you didnít intend. I donít think thereís necessarily a right answer as far as integrating all those different energy patterns, itís different for everyone. A podcast I was listening to last night had a couple of spiritual teachers disagreeing on the sort of related subject of how to process uncomfortable energy. One was all ďmove towards the discomfortĒ and the other was all ďI donít own that stuff, it just came through me and Iím not going to deal with it.Ē But the funny thing is that both would take the opposite perspective on certain other elements or situations and it had something to do with how they were both holding ego and spirit together. Itís not an evolutionary thing where one is superior to the other. I think personally you can use both approaches and see how each works in different circumstances.
Hey Passiflora, great advice!!! Sounds like a great podcast that I would be interested in. Interestingly a lot of thread are about Pluto Saturn and not much about mercury and when you delve deeper itís a big part of us as without it comms would be strange lol yet we are not drawn to it like say Pluto or Venus.

With your merc do you like an audience when you communicate?

Definitely, Hkk. I certainly love having an audience, in fact, I do not like private messaging too much at all. Almost every private conversation I have with someone fizzles out eventually. I much prefer talking on the open forum, where my words reach a much wider audience. But this might have to do with my very gregarious, people-loving Mars in Gemini. I love the idea of talking to a multitude of people.

I knew this post would get ignored because of what i wrote I wrote it on purpose because my mercury 8th house placement has an effect too on my Leo mercury. I'm great at doing reverse psychology on people, I can also pick up vibes from people very quickly....hence my signature.

I remember a fun thread i opened on here once using reversed psychology, and the response i got was hilarious. I'll try and find it.

Re: Mercury - what is your communication style and why

Mercury in Sagittarius. 12th house, conjunct Sun and Pluto with a wide square from Saturn in the 3rd.

I have a talent for seeming like a straight shooter when it suits me. Often silent and watchful. Mind is tenacious and energetic. I like to simplify and distill what I say without losing my point, especially in real life conversation. Usually it's only after a long period that people have any idea what's on my mind, and I'm cognizant of what it is that I "let loose". Naturally, with Pluto and Saturn involved you can understand a manifestation of "controlled speech".

I agree with what Wan said. My mercury is also in Leo. Iím very talkative, have nice sense od humor, quick replies...I often lead a conversation and I can talk about various themes. People usually tend to listen to me and I am very expressive and considered intersting for most of times. Iím also very open with everyone which is sometimes not great. When I first talk to people or they donít know me well they usually guess that Iím a fire sign and are left in shock when they find out Iím a cancer. However, as you said there are some times, rearly but there surely are, when Iím quiet, reserved and when all of above seems to wanish. Itís durring times or in situations where I for some reason donít feel comfortable, either because od many people I donít know, lack of any common themes, or there is specific person that I donít vibe with or makes me anxious either for concrete reason or just some bad energy. This is probably due to cancer sun and pisces rising... or even virgo moon. Still new to astrology so Ií canít claim or say for sure anything about other aspects for now.
