Mercury Conjunct Uranus Natal and Transit

Mercury Conjunct Uranus NatalMercury Conjunct Uranus in the natal chart gives a brilliant mind, that of an eccentric genius. Ideas come thick and fast out of nowhere, aided by a keen intuition and sometimes psychic ability. These flashes of insight are processed at lightning speed, with abstract reasoning.

Often times, the speed of mental activity can lead you to jump to conclusions. If your intuition is spot on, then this is a good thing. However, the lack of methodical analysis can lead to incorrect assumptions, changeable points of view, or boredom once the fascination with a subject or new idea has worn off. Physically, you should be nimble and clever with your hands, with quick reflexes mirroring the rapid-firing of neurons in your brain.

The original and unorthodox nature of your thought processes can manifest as a talent for the sciences or other technical subjects, also occult fields such as astrology. Interestingly, Mercury is the traditional ruler of astrology, while Uranus is its modern ruler.

One thing to be careful of with the high vibrational energy of this aspect, is that you may suffer from nervous irritability and impatience. The key to harnessing the best of this sometimes erratic energy, is to learn to slow down and meditate when the pace of life becomes too quick. In this way, you can reduce the risk of mental exhaustion or accidents.

Mercury Conjunct Uranus Transit

Transiting Mercury conjunct Uranus stimulates your thinking and adds excitement to your daily interacts and routines. The electrifying influence on your brain makes this an ideal time for any mental or creative work requiring originality. Increased open-mindedness and intuition can lead to flashes of insight and breakthroughs.

Routine study and concentration is likely to be disrupted because you are more easily distracted. However, these are excellent conditions for scientific or technical fields like science and mathematics where the grasping of concepts is more important than memorizing formula. Strange or occult fields can be better understood and this includes astrology, with the transitional ruler being Mercury and modern ruler Uranus.

Unexpected news may come your way but this transit alone does not imply whether it be good or bad news. Your reaction time is rapid which is good for dexterity but can cause problems like jumping to conclusions or interrupting conversations. Your speech could even become abrupt as you blurt out whatever comes to mind. Any nervous conditions would be exacerbated like fidgeting, nail-biting or muscle spasms.

This is a good time for gaining higher awareness and experimentation, but not a good time for making plans, serious negotiations or sticking to routine. Errors in judgement and spelling mistakes are more likely. Remain conscious of the tendency to become distracted when driving or using machines. Computers, electronics and appliances may malfunction.

Personal interactions are affected by your erratic thought and communication style but this can lead to interesting discoveries about yourself and others. New people may enter your life and would likely be different or exciting in some way. You will be more accepting of unusual people and such chance encounters will provide valuable pieces of information. Although new friendships will be exciting they are likely to be fleeting unless other transits indicate otherwise.

  1. Not sure if this is relevant because already have a moon in neptune. But if feel squeezed by soceity or put on the spot, i’ll drop out ( it’s a top secret operation) and take the long way round to get what i want or problem solve.

    • During the moment/transit with this kind of nature, meditation or walk in fresh air, is a must. Just so keeping balance, because once imbalanced, it will take more time to come back to balance.

  2. Hi Jamie,

    Quick feedback on this: I had the most unexpected news on 31 March ….Uranus rules my 7th and 8th and Mercury rules my 3rd…. well I got a text message from an older love with who I haven’t been in touch in 2 years…just like that out of the blue.

    This conjunction was opposing my natal Pluto which is natally square my venus and I felt so much that energy at the time this person was important for me …I guess I can say I am completely free from this venus-square energy when it comes to this person.

    Astrology is astonishing 🙂

  3. I have this in my progressed chart, in Leo…quincunx Saturn in Cap…still… yep there is a fine line between genius and insanity, not sure I am either, so hopefully neither, but still a fine line lol!
