Mercury Square Mars Natal and Transit

Mercury Square Mars TransitMercury square Mars in the natal chart creates a number of tests and challenging in your life which mainly stem from the rapid speed of your thought processes. You rationalize things so quickly that there is not enough time for you to think about whether you are right or not. As a result of this rushed decision-making, you can blurt things out which others may find confronting. They may think you are being overly assertive or argumentative. Such misunderstandings only add to your frustration and temper, thus this destructive cycle continues and can escalate.

Your strong need for independence, lack of inhibition, passionate beliefs and cynicism can add fuel to the fire. Your gritty, courageous and fighting spirit can also exacerbate the problems which your sharp wit and tongue get you into. Other people may end up finding you hostile and unsympathetic to their concerns.

Of course, you may be subject to such aggression and hurtful words, and you would be very sensitive to this. You are a very unique and sometimes controversial person, but you don’t have to put up with the anger and irritation of arguments and hostile relationships. You must confront your tendency to speak without thinking or rushing to conclusions. You can master what you are not good at and this is the role of the square aspect in astrology. You will continually be presented with tests and challenges by others in order that you gain the knowledge and experience to rationalize and communicate effectively.

The key in to slow down your thinking and communication style. Conscious awareness of your rapid thinking is half the battle won. Join a debating team and focus on literacy and numeracy. Start blogging or learn creative writing. Physical exercise and sport, even body building, may improve self-control, patience and reaction time. Some astrologers suggest you should avoid sharp objects and dangerous machinery. I believe these are things you should face head on and master.

You can become a very skilled communicator and thinker, even a knife thrower. You do not need to contain your high energy but must learn to use it productively and safely. Enjoy being the suave, sexy and outrageous character you are.

Transiting Mercury square Mars leads to rushed thinking which can make you short-tempered and aggressive. You may jump to conclusions, rush your decision-making and say the wrong thing. All of this can then lead to disagreements, arguments and even open hostility.

Your personal relationships can suffer under this influence but other areas of life can be problematic. When interacting with other people they key is to listen carefully and think twice before speaking. Just as you are likely to be irritable and touchy, those around you can pick up on the vibe and become more assertive too.

This is not a good time for making important decisions or entering into negotiations. If you must attend to important business or legal matters then seek professional guidance. Studying and paperwork may suffer from your jumpy and unsettled nature.  But you cannot bury your frustrations and smother your high energy. There are constructive things you can do to safely express this nervous energy.

Danger when taking risks comes from your heated mental state and impulsiveness. Instead of racing cars or debating politics and religion, you should look to more controlled or conservative activities. This can include hobbies or creative projects in which you use your hands and fingers for dexterity. Physical exercise and sports, though not too competitive, will also burn up the hot energy.

  1. Hi Jaime,

    I see that Mercury Square Mars will be around Sep 11~13 with 21 ~ 19 degrees. Would late decan 2 and early decan 3 for mutable signs suffer?

  2. This is so accurarate. This girl once asked me if my Sun Sign was Aries because of how confrontational I sound when I talk. I’m actually a 3rd House Aquarius Sun, Sagittarius Rising (fiery? duh) and 10th Virgo Moon. Virgo Moons can be very verbally scathing and tactless, because after all, it’s ruled by Mercury. And Mercury in my chart is in Capricorn, squaring my Mars in Libra, ugh.
