Mercury Square Uranus 31 January 2017

Mercury Square Uranus TransitMercury square Uranus in the natal chart sets you apart from the pack because of your different way of thinking and communicating. While you may well have a brilliant mind, your sometimes provocative ideas or eccentric manner can upset others and lead to relationships difficulties.

I will deal with the drawbacks of this aspect first which mainly revolve around how you communicate. Trouble listening can occur due to lack of concentration or being easily distracted. This can lead to you saying the wrong thing in response to others as you did not fully understand what they said first.

The prankster in you can also lead to others being offended or insulted, and the same can result if you have an abrupt way of speaking. But at a higher level, your tendency to see the other side of things can lead to you challenging other’s ideas. This can be a good thing in general, but can be seen as arrogance or shit stirring by others. People may come away thinking you are just out for attention by shocking them or being deliberately argumentative. It is likely, however, that you genuinely see the benefit in looking at things from all sides. The benefit being that all options on the table leads to a better discussion and better outcomes.

Your tendency toward controversy can actually be a sign that you are gifted, intelligent and creative. You are certainly experimental and are easily excited by new or shiny things. Perhaps more discrimination or self-control is needed if you wish to maintain harmony in relationships, especially when meeting someone new. And this aspect does indicate that you experience many chance encounters and will meet a wide variety of people, from different cultural, ethnic and philosophical backgrounds.

However, this aspect also indicates that you may change friends often, having difficulty maintaining long-term companionships. You may be subject to more than your fair share of shock and surprises in your life, while sticking plans may prove difficult. Discrimination and feeling isolated or cut off from mainstream society are other outcomes of your original way of thinking, Being labelled weird or a nerd would be all part of this. Nervous anxiety, spasms, or broken arms and fingers are possible.

You may be particularly amused by, and drawn to novelties, and your quirky sense of humor would come in handy as a comedian. Your unorthodox and inventive way of thinking could lead to a career as a scientist, designer, engineer, inventor or mad professor.

You would also excel in occult subjects which include science or mathematics, such as astrology and numerology. Interestingly, Mercury is the traditional ruler of astrology, and Uranus the modern. Computers and the internet would could provide a healthy income, with the internet in particular being a great way for you to communicate and make friends. The internet limits the dissociative influence of Uranus and gives you a longer time to think before making rash statements.

Mercury Square Uranus Transit

Transiting Mercury square Uranus brings excitement and change to your daily routine and interactions which can cause upsets and nervous tension. You may receive shocking news or experience something unexpected that forces you to change plans. The normal tempo of life increases and you may have an unsettling feeling of always having to catch up.

This is not the best time for making plans or attending to detailed paperwork due to lack of concentration. An increased need for excitement or amusement makes you easily distracted and less responsible or dependable. Likewise, others may let you down or seem distracted.

Mishaps are likely in your communications whether in person, in writing or on the internet, where misunderstandings could lead to arguments. It could be that you or the other person misses a vital piece of information which could lead to the wrong thing being said. You are more likely to offend others and be offended under this influence.

On the positive side, you have an increased ability to view things through a different perspective, which can lead to original ideas and breakthroughs. Chance encounters with others are possible, but friendships made now are likely to be short-lived.

The anxiety and stress of this transit can be somewhat alleviated by postponing important meetings or appointments. Think twice before making bold statements, and double-check and travel plans. Avoid making spontaneous decisions or agreeing to things on the spur of the moment. Remaining flexible and open minded is key to dealing with any unexpected events, from your car breaking down to printer jams.

9 thoughts on “Mercury Square Uranus 31 January 2017

  1. Hi Jamie, do I have Uranus square Mercury? I only know Uranus is in Virgo and Merc is in Sag. Dec 2 1962 935 am Calgary Alberta. I’m trying to figure out what is square to fire. ? Earth or water? Thank you

    • No, the orb is too wide at 9 degrees. There is a weak Sun influence from Sun square Uranus at 5 degrees and a strong influence of Mercury square Pluto at 2 degrees orb.

      • Thank you! So I should look more to the Sun square Uranus and Merc square Pluto? Can you tell me why do I feel like that Pluto gives me tons of trouble? I’m trying to change my outlook towards it, but it’s been hard. I have no basis for feeling this way, so it’s confusing to me. And Sag is square to Virgo then? And Sag is square to Pisces?

        • Yes, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces make a grand cross. Actually Sun square Pluto at 2 degrees orb is probably twice as strong as Sun square Uranus at nearly 5 degrees orb.

          Venus sextile Pluto is your tightest aspect at 0°06′. The you also have the very intense Moon quincunx Pluto to research.

          When you mention “feeling” and “confusion” in the same sentence it makes me think that your trouble comes more from Neptune than Pluto. You do have Moon square Neptune under half a degree.

  2. 100/100. I have this one at 1’47” on my natal. Can’t thank you enough! A bit confused though right now. I(ascendant cancer) also have Mercury in my decan(3) and Mercury trine Mars in this week and those seem to be quite positively powerful. But with this Mercury square Uranus should I be postponing all meetings? Really have a good opportunity between 11th and 13th to present my ideas which I know will take me a long way. Thanks Jamie.

  3. Actually before i could decide, luck decided it for me. My manager went on leave(which was sudden) between 11th and 15th July, so this window kinda became non existent for me. The next one coming up is between 27th July and 5th August, but that would not be a in-room presentation, at best a web presentation or just sharing my presentation over email and then answering questions over phone/email. What do you think of that window? Better/worse/similar in terms of planetary aspects? I am an Aquarius(Decan1) and Cancer(Decan3).
    Also another question: What is the window of validity i should consider for the transiting aspects? Like for Full Moon and New Moon we have a window of 2 weeks, extended to 4 weeks. If an aspect is on my natal chart, i guess it’s effects are lifelong 🙂

    • Yes, an aspect in your birth chart is life long. A new moon lasts for 28 days. A full moon lasts for 14 days. Eclipses usually last about 6 months, up to the next series of eclipses.

  4. LOL. I have this natal at 5mins orb. As a child I was incredibly clumsy. I was constantly breaking things, falling and bumping. I have had to learn to watch what I am doing but do still have a knack for that odd clumsy accident. Also interestingly you say it gives nervous anxiety spasms. Well I do suffer from acute anxiety and bite my nails to a stump! Uranus is conjunct Pluto by 2deg in my chart and I have also had to learn how badly words can hurt, both myself and others. In anger if I am not careful I can say horrifically cruel things. I also often inadvertently will blurt something out that really should have stayed in!
    On the positive, this aspect, well yes. I don’t believe I am anybody’s victim and have no time to feel sorry for myself. I am resourceful and inventive and believe in the power of invention. With my MC also at the last degree of Aquarius I make my living by finding often complex solutions for other peoples problems. I am very free thinking, loving all kinds of subjects from esoteric to science of which I am a junkie and follow various journals as a hobby.
    Thanks Jamie.
