Mercury Opposite Pluto Natal and Transit

Mercury Opposite Pluto TransitMercury Opposite Pluto in the natal chart is felt as an internal struggle with thoughts and concepts, how to rationalize and then communicate them. The intensity of your nature comes from this deep psychological process and others will see you as a deep and complex person.

You are not happy to take ideas, news or opinions at face value. Your inquiring mind must probe and deeply understand all the fine print and ramifications of any piece of data, from a spiritual concept to what your friend just said. This can lead to a wide and comprehensive knowledge. You may hone in on a particular field, becoming a master in your chosen field. You don’t like to be wrong, and this, together with your mental intensity, can lead to relationships problems.

The problem arises because people around you are unlikely to show the same degree of seriousness or interest in what you are thinking or talking about. Difficulty in connecting to people can arise because small talk does not challenge your mind enough to keep you interested.

You may even feel that you are ostracized or persecuted simply because others cannot relate to your depth of thinking. They may become confused and uninterested, or state a different opinion just you upset you. You do have strong opinions so are likely to get involved in arguments and conflict.

In order to have some harmony in relationships at the intimate level, you need to gain self-awareness of your communication style and how you come across to others. Thankfully, you have the intelligence to make this realization. You also have a powerful ability to transform, and through this higher self-awareness, improve your communication style to better integrate and maintain close relationships.

Mercury Opposite Pluto Transit

Transiting Mercury opposite Pluto creates a battle of ideas, either within your own mind or between competitors. There is a tendency under this transit to put the blinkers on an hone in on a particular problem or concept. This is a good time for research, investigation and uncovering secrets. An intense buildup of mental energy requires an outlet, and this can range from occult studies to fierce debates and arguments.

The most positive manifestation of this transit would be psychological self-analysis or relationship counselling. Although opinions may be very strong now, there is also the promise of a positive transformation in your thinking as deeper levels of understanding are reached.

There are however, a number of more negative scenarios to beware of. This transit favors subversive tactics such as propaganda, mid control, threats, intimidation and other forms of psychological abuse. You should be wary of being talking into things under pressure, as there is a tendency to become intrigued or obsesses with a particular idea. Abusing your own mental powers may result in temporary gains and inflated feeling of superiority, but in the long run such tactics would backfire.

The truth may be hidden today by secrecy or propaganda. It is reasonable not to take anything a face value and investigate both sides of the equation. Conspiracy theories abound.

  1. Mercury opposing Pluto is an aspect that I know well. I have Pluto conjunct Regulus opposing Mercury and Mercury and Pluto square Saturn (The focal point) in a nasty T-Square in fixed signs. Saturn trine Uranus conjunct Jupiter and these two trine an unencumbered Sun that is conjunct the Ascendant and these two trine Saturn, lends a little help. However, a grand trine can be lazy if it isn’t acted upon. One should never worry about a T-Square being lazy, because it gives an impetus for action. Can I get an amen to that? Have a wonderful day.

  2. I do not have this placement myself, however I do have pluto in Virgo opposite Chiron in Pisces, and natal Chiron is in Grand trine with Mercury in Cancer and Neptune in Scorpio, so even deeper into the underworld at times to work with learning a deep mind healing at the bottom of the lake, for whatever purpose that is to serve that way, so yes it would be intense and vast and serious as this depth of mind is also very clise to where the spirit becomes a soul, thus highly vulnerable yet hughly powerful too? I love that you have offered this at this timing, it really matters for others to understand how much affect the mind has at this depth of the emotiinal pool to be careful not to be giving cause for oneself or others to suffer needlessly. Kudos Jamie!

    • Thank you. I’m sure you will like my plans to write more about the outer planets aspects, the generation ones.
