Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

Mercury RX can help writing, but because it may indicate some problem in other (verbal) forms of communication. For instance, I know one professional SF/F author with Mercury retro (and the usual Uranus and Neptune involvement I see with SF authors) ... but she's about 80% deaf! Writing became her communicative outlet.

I know another Mercury retro who writes because he stutters in person.

And yet another Mercury retro who talked late (as a baby) and then developed ADHD as a child, interfering with his ability to communicate effectively. He also had a horrible time spelling, although his writing *itself* (the letter forms) were always very good for his age.

So with Mercury RX, I usually poke a little further and see if there is some literal blockage or psychological issue that prevents or impedes verbal communication. In some (but not all) cases, the need to communicate goes "inward" and comes out in written form rather than verbal.

I was born at the same time as Brett Easton Ellis the writer and I'm a writer too. There is some analysis on the web of his chart which is pretty interesting- at least it is for me.
Typically there are 3rd house/9th house placements.
Gemini, Virgo and Mercury aspects are good as these all rule communication.
Also aspects to the 5th house for general creativity are good
Jupiter or Venus just past midheaven or conjunct (according to Gaugelein is statistically common in writers). I have both.
More famous poets are Pisces than any other sign. (I am Pisces). More general writers are Taurus than any other sign according to a study done on famous people in Encyclopaedia Britannica (although of course there are plenty of writers from every sign).
In the end though if you just go ahead and write then you are a writer and nothing in your chart will say otherwise.
If you want to be a rich and famous writer though you will need the usual aspects for fame and money (of the earned income variety).

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

Strong 3rd and 5th, with a connection to the 10th for professional writing

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

I try to ask myself, every time I'm making my mind up about something major in my life, what is it that I need to do, not what I simply want to do. What is it that I feel compelled to do? Writing is very much one of those things- or at least communicating in general. This is particularly evident in me when I'm feeling very low- I need to have a pen in my hand to express what I'm feeling, or I find myself mentally creating stories out of my pain, or imagining how I would write it down effectively so that other people understood. I don't know if my chart suggests success in writing, or even if I'll ever take it seriously as a career, but I know it shows how I am definitely compelled to express myself with words and creativity. Here are some of the things I think supports my writing ability: Neptune/Uranus conjunction in the 5th, though generational, gives me a sense of drama when I'm being creative, and I think Neptune in the 5th gives me quite a creative imagination. Uranus gives me quick insight and inspiration when I'm writing (sometimes I feel like I should be carrying a notepad around with me everywhere because I have ideas coming to me out of the blue but go just as quickly). With Mercury in Scorpio, conjunct Mars and Pluto, I'm very passionate with how I communicate, and when I write there's usually a supernatural element or a sense of mystery or major plot twists or even whole transformations of characters. Mercury/Mars/Pluto are in the 4th. I don't really know how this plays out, but with 4th being the roots of who you are, I think Mercury in 4th would make me a deep thinker, someone who observes the outside world and absorbs it all, and seems to suggest that I have a lot going on in my head. My thoughts are fast and I seem to be always thinking. I suffer with insomnia because of it, and even whilst I'm dreaming my thoughts and wondering continue. Mercury and Neptune are my most highly aspected planets (and they sextile each other). Mercury sextile Uranus helps too, I think. My third house is somewhat strong- Sun (chart ruler) and Jupiter (5th house ruler) conjunct in Libra, placed in the 3rd, squaring my Neptune/Uranus (it seems really negative but I think there's a plus side to these squares, especially since my Sun/Jupiter trine my Saturn and that seems to give me a sense of reality, too). I have Venus in Virgo, sextile Pluto and trine Neptune/Uranus, in conjunction with my Moon who rules my 12th house. (Both Venus and Moon are placed in the 2nd).

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

First glance, my chart should read that I'd be writer. I've never wanted to write professionally, though. I have Aqua 10th house cusp, Uranus in Sagittarius in the 7th house, making very little aspects to personal planets.

My preferred outlet was visual art and drawing. I think there is a fine line there. Rx Leo Mercury conjunct Sun oppose Moon in 3rd/9th house axis, ruler of my 5th house and Venus in Virgo, Gemini ASC, makes for difficult communication of feelings, but a strong need to communicate creatively, and a good facility with words and written communication (though not foreign languages for some reason... Sag DC?). Yet I was more interested in stories communicated visually, such as illustrated books, animation and comics. I made stop-motion animation with clay figurines as a kid, and considered being a cartoonist for a while, even as an adult. I can come up with great stories but have difficulty writing them. I tried to write poetry, and I was encouraged to do it, but actually had very little interest in it. I can bust out some good poems once in a while... but no where near talented.

What is the difference there? What separates writing from other forms of communication? I'm wondering if Neptune must be involved somewhere (very lacking in my chart) for poetry, or if the Leo/5th house somehow overpowers the "writer" side for storytelling and communication. Venus conjunctions do seem to show up in people with great writing skills, but as far as identifying as a writer, is far more sketchy.

Posting my chart just for reference.

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

I'm going to post my chart here, firstly because I think mine may be an unusual case, and secondly because any suggestions would be very welcome at this time. I turned twenty recently enough, and am working steadily towards publishing a collection of poems. As it is, I've published in numerous literary magazines and have delivered public readings of my work (a little wine always helps). I began writing in earnest around the age of sixteen or seventeen I think, and write for several hours every day, no matter how pressing other things may be that space is cleared. I recognized from an early age that poetry was my vocation, and I find myself a touch obsessive about realizing it and making the work as good as it should be. A slight needy perfectionism has to be contended with in the process.

Anyway, as I enter into my final year at University this September, I'm increasingly anxious about how writing can be practically gone about. I wonder about the indications of writing in my chart. Whether they're present as strongly as I want them to be or not, won't have any influence on my work ethic of course, but it would be an affirmation of sorts to find out.

Thanks,

INT.

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

You have a lovely minor-grand trine between your Pisces Sun, Pluto for depth, and the Uranus-Neptune conjunction of the mid/late 90s at the apex. These all suggest that your fundamental self is hooked in to the largely social consciousness, which is good for a writer: to be able to speak to others, not just to the self, even while it may come from the self and highly personal experiences. Jupiter also makes a trine to Saturn, suggesting a good sense of balance between ambition and effort for mastery.

You also have a loose stellum in your 5th house, but it receives several challenging aspects from Pluto and Jupiter. These are squares, and to be honest, a chart NEEDS challening aspects, or you get nothing done. The Moon and Mercury in conjunction suggests an ability to verbalize emotion, squaring Pluto suggests being pushed to express it, but perhaps also sometimes coming into conflict with authority (especially female). My son also has a Moon-Pluto square, so I have some idea of how that can play out. If someone tells you "No," how do you respond? If there's an automatic instinctive kick-back, that's typical for this aspect. Depending on how you manage it, it can help you get through the inevitable rejections that come as part of a writing career (any type of writing career, not just fiction). It can either help you keep going or, in the negative expression, lead you to snap back and perhaps burn bridges, or walk away entirely. Just something to keep in mind.

Jupiter also squares the Moon-Mercury combo, which can be good, but may lead to exaggeration at times. Another thing to be aware of. Sometimes less is more. :-D Perhaps the most challenging aspect is the Mars-Saturn conjunction (Saturn can feel like a wet blanket on the bravery and incentive of Mars), squaring Pluto. In short, at times, you may become your own worst enemy, undermining your own efforts either by stifling yourself, or by occasional explosions of temper. Poetry may be one way to channel that energy in a positive way (as Pluto is part of that minor-grand trine).

Squares may present challenges, especially when younger, but are also very energizing, once we learn to handle them. We don't get much done in life without squares, in natal charts, in transits, and in progressions. :-)

Keno,

thanks for responding so promptly. I hadn't realized that I had a minor grand trine, and discovered this and other like passages online:

"Minor Grand Trine
The Minor Grand Trine is a common aspect pattern. It occurs when one planet sextiles two planets that are in a trine aspect and forms a long red triangle. This favorable pattern is associated with creativity and intelligence. Depending on the planet that sextiles the other two, above average communications abilities may also be present. If you have a Minor Grand Trine in your chart, you can depend on being able to put your plans into action and achieve positive results. This pattern also highlights intuition and insight".


Well, that's heartening. I do feel the 'push' of those Pluto squares, in more ways than one, and it being the most heavily aspected planet in my chart it's certainly difficult not to see qualities in people, it's like being hyper-empathic. That comes with intensity of focus, seeing deeply, paranoia sometimes... One thing I do notice is that my communicative abilities can be highly erratic in person - one day I can be perfectly articulate, then it's like I'm aware of something about someone in my presence that I don't want to be, wires get crossed, and I struggle to be coherent. I used to pin this on my north node.

I can relate to your 'kick-back', for sure. I've been looking at my upcoming transits, and notice that Saturn will be entering my third house in a few months as Jupiter enters the eleventh. This looks to be favourable for writing.

Anyway I'll leave it there for now,

INT.

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

ImNotThere9, your described focus on writing cries out for a clearer astro factor in the chart than I’m finding (though the conjunction to the Moon can be a classic IQ indicator).
But I don’t jump to Pluto squaring your personal planets to fill in the gap (because at such wide orbs, the influence is weak or non-existent, other than the 90 to your Mars).
Instead of Pluto squares, how about your “hyper-empathic” being best indicated by your Moon novile Ven and your intense focus by your 15 min tight orbed Sun semi-decile Uran.

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

Krewster,

hard to say, but since you're pointing to noviles and semi-deciles, my attention was drawn recently to a tredecile between Jupiter and Mars. This aspect is meant to confer a strong creative drive, and Mozart had this one. I can't say that I am au fait with them beyond this and a little that I've been told. All I know is that the focus is there, discipline isn't an issue. Apparently these tredeciles help to create opportunities for manifesting creativity. I wonder if writing is shown as a likely vocation in my chart? I know that the ruler of my MC is placed in the fifth house conjunct Mercury, which is a fair indication. But otherwise, like publication, I'm looking to the ninth house whose ruler Venus conjuncts DC in Aries, which in itself suggests almost nothing to me. Looking to the third house, the ruler Pluto is a few degrees back in the second, which is known to influence the voice (house of Taurus).

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

Thanks for getting me to pull up Wolfgang’s chart (from which I see he has more 5 and 10-denominatored aspects than Einstein and Mars, alone, enjoying four such aspects, including your mentioned Mars tri-decile Jup).
Wolfgang’s is four x tighter-orbed than yours but ?coincidentally? both of your aspects are triangulated by Uran (his into a 40 min-average-orbed 108-144-108 triangle while yours into a 30 min-average-orbed 72-108-36 triangle).
So (along with both of your chart’s Sun (semi)decile Uran), you guys enjoy natural/easy discipline/focus not for a Saturnian reason so much as because of the endlessly available windows of opportunity through which you are afforded access to jump.
My prior post did what I could on the subject of your writing (is the style dreamy oriented from your Merc’s 30 to Nept or a-social somehow from your Merc’s tri-undecile to Jup?).

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

Thanks Krewster,

interesting what you write about Mozart. He was a famously prodigious child.

I also like what you say here, the "endlessly available windows of opportunity through which you are afforded access to jump". What is your conception of the creative process, in relation to this jump?

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

I’m mostly just trying to focus on what each aspectual denominator can be said to mean and am not enamored of the keyword “creativity” for the 5 and its sisters the 10 and the 20 (which seems just like one possible result from these aspects’ manifesting when Merc, Ven and/or Mars are involved).
But happy to listen to your thoughts and/or answer to my last post’s curiosity about your style/content of writing (for comparison to your chart).

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

I'm still puzzling over what you write about 'windows' and 'the jump'. Thought of as a 'leap', it reminds me of Kierkegaard and his 'knight of faith'. It seems quite Uranian to me too.

It's hard to define my own style, it is always developing. I know this sounds evasive. All I know is that the writing is - what most concerns me is how I can sustain myself financially in the coming years while actualizing it as a vocation, if there are opportunities shown in the chart for doing this. I suppose I will continue investigating that. Thanks.

I can personally agree with this. Here are some of my aspects and placements that give me superb writing skills:

Mercury in Virgo in the 8th House (north node Gemini in 6th house - Virgo's natural domicile)
Mercury trine Ascendant (excellent one right here)
Moon in the 3rd House (Gemini's natural domicile), trining Neptune in the 12th and sesquiquadrate my Mercury

That's basically all you need right there.

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

Mercury in good position in the 12th house gives a person ability to write on sci-fi things and about spiritual things about unknown. In 3rd house; it may give ability to write drama and with saturn here it can give long writing ability like writing a big-big novel because saturn here elongates the time. moon sextile mercury can add some extra power on writing ability. But it must be in exalted position or in its own sign.

My mum is extremely good at writing stories, novels etc. But too bad she never used it for a carreer or something....Now its kind of too late cause shes 56 I guess.

She has Mercury, Jupiter, Sun, Uranus in cancer 11th house.

Mercury is conjunct jupiter closely (in contrast to my mercury SQUARE jupiter)
Mercury also trines saturn in scorpio.

She has Leo AC with venus and pluto in the 1st conjunct AC.

Moon and mars in the 5th together with NN. Maybe has something to do with creativity also??

Neptune in the 3rd --> Very creative mind, but not able to achieve anything academically because of problems concentrating and so on.
I know it's been a long time since this thread was started, but I just want to explain one thing: it's NEVER too late to start writing. I attended a live reading where one of the authors had her first book read out loud by someone else, she couldn't make it there easily because she was 92! You're never too old to start writing!

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

Not only is it never too late to start writing, but writing is one of those fields that actually FAVORS age, as it brings with it experience and experienceS. A writer writes what she knows (or researches like hell), and so the more experiences one has, the deeper the well one can draw on.

(And in today's publishing world, it can sometimes take a while not just to finish a book, but to find an agent/publisher and get it sold, or to learn how to market and self-publish.)

You have a gift for expressing emotions and communicating feelings. You are probably a very talented poet. You gain much support through your brilliance in communicating, and may find numerous creative ways to express this exceptional ability. You are a fascinating conversationalist.

Moon quintile Mercury: Adopting a style of intelligent perceptiveness and of articulate commuication of feelings; creating a rational structure of thought for understanding the world; seems to be connected with wit, humour, and especially with satire.

neptune and pluto aspects to mercury are probably beneficial, having planets in gemini can't hurt either!
hah? I don't get people who take semi-minor aspects like a quintile and say it has a great impact. Lol. You need to look for aspects that have a bit more weight. There are a lot of writers with Jupiter in their 3rd. That often makes a wordy, well-spoken person. Mercury in hard aspect to Neptune may create an imaginative person. Mercury in the 1st, or perhaps someone's Sun in the third would also create this.

Re: aspects and configurations...that make good writers

I'm posting my chart before going back to read all the responses (sorry, short on time) but I was curious if my chart points to creative writing or debate? I skimmed and briefly saw mentions of pisces in mercury & whatnot.
