Mercury Square Mars Natal and Transit

Mercury square Mars natal creates several tests and challenges in your life, mainly stemming 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 that 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 fuel 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. Mercury square Mars makes you unique and sometimes controversial, but you don’t have to deal 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, which is the role of the square aspect in astrology. You will continually be presented with tests and challenges by others so that you gain the knowledge and experience to rationalize and communicate effectively.

The key is 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 sports, even bodybuilding, 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 high energy but must learn to use it productively and safely. Enjoy being the suave, sexy, and outrageous character you are.

Mercury Square Mars Transit

Mercury square Mars transit can cause rushed thinking and make you short-tempered and aggressive. You may rush your decision-making, jump to conclusions, and say the wrong thing. This can lead to disagreements, arguments, and even open hostility.

Your relationships can suffer under this influence, but other areas of life can be problematic when interacting with others. Listening carefully and thinking twice before speaking is vital. Just as you are likely irritable and touchy, those around you can pick up on the vibe and become more assertive.

This is not a good time for making important decisions or entering negotiations. If you must attend to important business or legal matters, 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 express this nervous energy safely.

Danger when taking risks comes from your heated mental state and impulsiveness. Instead of racing cars or debating politics and religion, you should consider more controlled or conservative activities. This can include hobbies or creative projects where you use your hands and fingers for dexterity. Though not too competitive, physical exercise and sports will also burn 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.

    • Good feedback Fabs. YOu will always find that is is the aspects and not the Sign that gives people their characteristics. Also look to the fixed stars more even more detail.

  3. This definitely sounds like the negotiations with Trump’s government shutdown aren’t going to loosen up anytime soon.

  4. I think this happened to me today.
    I got an anonimous phonecall this morning and I answered it abruply, defensive and maybe a little agressive.. The caller didn’t even answer me.. and after some hesitance hung the Phone.. so I still don’t know who called and it frustrated me.
    So then I went shopping and came back with a sketchbook and a 3 kilo-kettlebell for a work out! Haha!
    Now that I’ve read this article I understand why!

    I have mars in libra 6th house natally and it was squared by transit mercury in 10th house.
    Mars is lord of the first house as well.

  5. Notice Two of the Three Mercury square Mars occurs during the last Venus Retrograde?

    19 October 2018
    26 November 2018

    With the third in the series occurring when Venus direct, January 9, just after the Jan 5, 2019 eclipse?

    Now look at the present cycle:

    Wait first the important decision after the second aspect, July 8, 2020.
