Mercury Sextile Venus Natal and Transit

Mercury Sextile Venus

Mercury sextile Venus in the natal chart, along with the conjunction of these social planets, is one of the more common aspects in astrology because of their similar orbital speed. And because of their inferior and elliptic orbits, the conjunction and sextile are the only major aspects these planets make to each other.

These are both very sociable planets, with Mercury ruling communication and Venus ruling love and relationships. So the energetic and expressive sextile makes this the ultimate aspect of friendship and diplomacy.

With this aspect in your chart you will have excellent social skills and be a pleasure to be around. Being in a pleasant environment is important because of your aversion to anything coarse or aggressive. This is also one of the reasons you make a good facilitator or diplomat, bringing people together and encouraging cooperation.

The one draw back of avoiding conflict is that you may miss out on some of the challenging experiences need to strengthen you character. Fortunately, you can talk and charm your way out of just about anything, and if that does not work, you can enlist the support of someone with the fighting skills to defend you.

A career in business, entertainment or politics would suit you, but your communication and numeracy skills would be an asset in any field. An ability to work well in groups means you would probably prefer not to work alone, but if you did perhaps an artistic or creative field would allow you to show express your natural talents in this area.
