Mercury Square Pluto Natal and Transit

Mercury Square Pluto Transit

Mercury square Pluto in the natal chart gives a complex and deep nature. Your thinking and view of the world are heavily influenced by intense or threatening situations, such as a major crisis in the family or experiences with the darker sides of humanity. Such rich life experience can lead to strong opinions which subject you to criticism. Your interactions with other people are often intense and mentally challenging.

You may therefore take on a very defensive attitude and use extreme or forceful tactics to defend your position. It is likely that you will attract other strongly opinionated people who challenge your ideas. Because you associate yourself, or identity so strongly with your ideas and opinions, you may go to any length to defend them. There is no doubt about your street smarts and deep intellect. Your opinions are worthy and based on deep research and life experience, however, the manner in which you communicate these ideas can lead to conflict.

You may use dictatorial, threatening or underhand tactics which would aggravate any opposition. Over time you will find that your method of communication evolves to a more diplomatic style which will further your cause and lead to less mental stress. It is also likely that your ideas and opinions themselves will undergo major transformations through your interactions and research.

Mercury Square Pluto Transit

Transiting Mercury square Pluto can lead to deep thinking and intense interactions with other people. You might research a specific idea or topic, and will need to take care you don’t take too seriously extremism or conspiracy theories. Even if you focus on a bland topic or moderate point of view, there is a risk that you will use extreme or coercive methods to express your thoughts.

The more extreme your idea, or the more force you use to convince others, the more criticism and conflict you will encounter. You will naturally become defensive under this influence, but it is important not to let your fighting spirit back you into a corner and complicate matters.

This transit will challenge your thinking which can result from, or lead to some crisis or experience with the darker side of humanity. There will also be an urge to dig deeply and investigate the truth of the matter. There is great potential then, to uncover secrets and mysteries which will deepen your understanding or a matter of your own psychology.

Taking the high road by maintaining an open mind and not arguing for the sake of it, can lead to a positive transformation of your intellect and communication style.

    • I think we can have a susceptibilty to go searching for secrets or anything that’s been covered up in the past with this transit. Also, we can accidentally find “secret information” in this transit. Thing’s that have been left in the wrong places and found; subsequently making us become accidental or provoked detectives! Once Pluto’s started searching, it won’t stop till it’s found everything, and all the answers! Who put pieces of information in the wrong places to be accidentally found? Like in family homes, work – anywhere. It’s almost like it was destined by the universe to be found in a Pluto transit. Also – “skeletons coming out of the closet.” All the secrets get uncovered in the end!

  1. This my favourite aspect in my own chart. There so much negative things said about Mercury square Pluto but honestly I don’t see why those things are looked upon as negative or bad…? This single aspect have caused me to rise above the mediocracy of life that everyone seems to blindly accept.

    • Glad for your feedback Johnny. I have heard too, that transiting Pluto square Mercury can be a very constructive one.

      • What I experienced with the exact square transit is that other people who are particularly egotistical and confrontational were constantly challenging me. It’s calmed down a lot now. But what I’ve learnt, which I found difficult at the time, was to ignore and walk away. There can be a lot of biting ones tongue when tolerating rubbish coming from others. I think where it was my natal Mercury being targeted, I was up against it by other “power abusers” – Plutonian’s. In my natal chart, I only have Neptune sextile Pluto and the only fights I had with others during this transit, both have Sun Square Pluto and Mars square Pluto! Was terrible – like going through a mental war zone! Bloody hell – the power that Pluto (people) like to have over others. I’ve learnt – the people who try to control others, usually haven’t got control over themselves and I found that to be so true regarding the two people who were constantly fighting with me (the native Sun Square Pluto’s). Also; if we walk away – they’ve got no one to argue with! You have to shut down your ego, your ears and ignore them! It can be very hard when they’re pushing you though! Will this transit still be effecting me for a few more months? My Mercury is Libra 13.26 degrees. I think that the intensity of it has definitely calmed down, thank God!

        • Pluto square Mercury transit will be slightly different than this but you get the picture. These were the exact dates for your Mercury:

          19 Jan 2015
          25 Jul 2015 Rx
          22 Nov 2015

          It may be feeling a bit stronger again as Pluto direct approaches in late September.

          • Thank you for the dates. So would the Pluto energy to my natal Mercury be less intensified when retrograde? But the the Rx one is supposed to have the internal effect.

            • Yep, that’s one way of looking at it. The transit lasts so much longer so the intensity of any event is spread out.

  2. Well, I have Pluto (Ascendent) square Mercury (4th House) and I completely DISAGREE!!!! GRRRR!!!

    Just kidding. ;-p

  3. Mercury 2nd square Pluto 5th near 0 degree orb.

    What is truth? Is it what another tells me? When someone soothes or lulls me, is it truth? I enjoy that therefore I accept. Or would I consider truth an ugly thing or something far more? Does it challenge who I am? When I think of truth it reminds me of this… Truth is Freedom, Security is Fear.
