Mercury Quincunx MarsMercury quincunx Mars natal makes you extremely smart and talented. It gives a colorful, feisty, and engaging personality that makes you entertaining and popular. You have many bright ideas and make bold plans to reach your goals. However, with such an active mind and eagerness to be heard, you can experience much anxiety, conflict, and crises.

You are very passionate about your ideas and impatient to share them or convince others of their merits. Your directness, outspokenness, and forthright activism can result in remarkable achievements and wide publicity. But with your sharp tongue and quick temper, it can also bring arguments, fierce rivalries, public scandal, and notoriety.

    • Good to hear from you again, Gaby. Al Gore and Carrie Fisher are already on the list. I did not include Tim Robbins because his aspect orb is over 2°00′, and Jean Renoir’s chart is rated C.

  1. I have this aspect but Mars conjunct Uranus and Pluto on top of it. .. I can very much agree with your words! Interestingly Mars (ruler of my Sun is Aries is in Virgo) and my Mercury ruler of Virgo (and communication ) is in Aries. So I have a triple or (quadruple?) wedgie effect. So, you can imagine….But as age goes I hope I am getting better to control my words and impulses….still not always easy because if I can’t say what I think and I hold it back too long…well, you know…people don’t understand what hit them…. so, I have to always let some steam out so it doesn’t cause an explosion….1 of the lessons of my life…Very good analysis though…Thanks Jamie,
    I was waiting for this for a while now…

    • Wow, Uranus and Pluto would make your brain so wired and intense. Your analogy sounds like a volcano. Thank you for the feedback!

      • Thanks for the report …..Yes, maybe a bit more under control as I am older (and I forgot to add that those 3 oppose Saturn (LOL) in a fairly tight opposition 1-3 degrees.) So, yes…you can imagine the duals in my head . It is in the 6-12 house opposition, I am not sure, if that is any help…but as I said , as I m getting close to my second Saturn return, it is a bit more controlled most of the time….unless something or someone irritates Mars or Uranus…..😉 Thanks again, and take care of yourself…

  2. Thanks Jamie: I’m glad you did this aspect by transit. It’s been such a crazy ride with Mercury Quincunx Mars, especially with these air transit issues. One more week to go with the retrogrades!

    • Your are most welcome. That is why is wrote this aspect now. I started writing this last month for a Mercury retrograde post but ran out of time.

  3. Thanks for the post, Jamie, and the feedback from the readers.

    This time is especially interesting, when both Mars, then Mercury, go retrograde and stop on the 8th degree of Gemini and Capricorn. Exactly. At 150°. Synchronicity at work!

  4. Thank you so much for your article. I have this aspect and my Pluto at the apex. I have not been able to find out very much information and this really helped me and I can relate 1000%.
