Not necessarily. Depends on the rest of your moon and Mercury aspects. Can you name them?

Also, while you might pick up a "blow to the head" for someone at, say, age 3; in a blind chart reading (vs. a post-hoc reading for a known person) you might have difficulty in saying how it affected the person.

Sometimes the difficulties in a chart reading are not in tracking planetary movements, but are in correctly intuiting how they affected the individual.

Medical astrology is not an exact science. I was just looking at a medical horary on another forum, and the querent indicated a lifetime of trouble with her current condition. Yet the indicators seemed to suggest that it was temporary. Possibly the chart timing was off, which is something else to consider in making highly fatalistic readings of what might be erroneous data.
The configuration of the natal chart demonstrates the effects of the transits/progressions, and in that way, the natal would still also describe the types of events that might be experienced, however they manifest.

Perhaps a conflict between Moon and Mercury shows up as a childhood head injury that results in a dissociative illness, only later to be successfully treated, where the conflict will show up again as a estrangement between parents/children, etc. Like you said, there lies the real difficulty of interpretation.

In terms of potential, being a creative genius or what have you could be just as likely as the head injury according to the natal.
