Mercury/Chiron Aspects

variety of keysPain associated with speaking, writing or other forms of communication. Extreme sensitivity to communication – what people say, how they say it and when they say it. Words most definitely can hurt you. Learning how to use voice, thoughts and language for healing purposes. Feeling pain from not having your voice heard. Using words and language to heal yourself. Using storytelling as a way to heal yourself and others. The journey of getting in touch with your unique voice. Learning to open up and talk about your problems. The need to talk about your “pain point.” Talking is painful. Expressing your thoughts through words is painful.

Guiding others with your words and thoughts. Playing with language. Tricksters. Court jesters. Deliverers of messages that others may not want to hear. You act as an antidote to self-importance – your own and others’. Puncturing egos with words. Facility with non-rational logic. Maverick communications. Sticking your foot in your mouth. The ability to embrace paradox. The ability to synthesize conflicting information and perceptions. The ability to reconcile opposites. No need to choose either/or.

He (Mercury) loves to see pride come before a fall, and is a natural antidote to the self-importance, pretensions and inflations encountered in the quest for consciousness and integration. The more we endeavor to reach our highest, to become godlike, to actualize our potential, the more this figure constellates quietly underneath ready to trip us up at any point should we dare to forget the chaotic origins of our hard-won sense of order, personal integration and consciousness. ~ Melanie Reinhart, Chiron and the Healing Journey


Siblings with disabilities or illness. The need to heal relationships with siblings. Pain associated with siblings. Feeling wounded by a sibling. Pain experienced by being the brother or sister of someone else. Flawed education. Feeling that your education was missing something. Needing more non-rational learning opportunities. Synthesizing all information in a learning environment. The ability to present information in a variety of formats. Seeing no conflict in differing learning styles. Letting your way of learning take you on a journey. Embarking on a self-healing journey through words and language. Telling a story of pain. A healing journey through information and learning. Embracing a self-informed learning style. Self-taught. Taking responsibility for your own education. Creating the information that you need. Realizing that there are gaps in the available information, or in the way it is presented. Taking it upon yourself to fill in gaps in learning and education. Searching for the missing links and connections to make information come together. A sudden epiphany – and then you get it.

It is the most delightful thing that ever happens to me, when I hear something coming out of my guitar and out of my mouth that wasn’t there before.
James Taylor

I believe musicians have a duty, a responsibility to reach out, to share your love or pain with others.
James Taylor

Synchronized timing with remarks and jokes. Saying the right thing at the right time. Saying the exact wrong thing at the wrong time. Subtle communication powers. The ability to pay attention to information that others miss. Learning by tripping yourself up. Having a knack for sticking your foot in your mouth. Being forced to think differently about the affairs of Mercury and Chiron’s house. Non-verbal assimilation of information. Knowing that a piece of the puzzle is missing. The ability to find a loophole in any logical thought pattern. The ability to learn through multiple channels. The way you think is somehow flawed according to convention. Your mental processes are not “normal.” You have the ability to open doorways of thinking that others would never have considered. You have unique perception. You have a way of putting information together that is wholly your own. You find opportunities in misses and near misses.

It makes me believe in fate. In most cases, the readings where I’ve been really bad have usually been the ones where I got the part.
Robin Wright Penn

The fragmented mind. Sectioning and compartmentalizing experience and perceptions. Lack of awareness of the greater whole. Learning to heal your fragmented perception of the world. Learning to bring all of your thoughts together. Bringing your various learning experiences together into a cohesive whole. Creating new learning disciplines and paradigms. Reclaiming missing memories. Extreme nervous energy and over-sensitivity to what people say. Inability to get over upsetting thoughts and concepts. The key to healing is reconciling your differing perceptions. The key to healing is reclaiming missing and fragmented observations, memories and connections. The key to healing is talking about what gives you pain. The key to healing is finding an outlet for nervous mental energy. The key to healing is learning how to relax your mind. The key to healing is resisting the urge to cut off from unwanted observations and thoughts. The key to healing is to recognizing and accepting all of your thoughts as part you. The key to healing is practicing mindfulness.

                This is a question that I would rather answer in an astrology reading than in a blog comment. It’s too complicated and I would need to see both charts.

    never though my 0 degrees quincunx could be the responsible for all the trouble and sensitiveness that I ever had with comunication. Oh, and I always have this fear of showing and talking about my vulnerable side, never though also that putting every off was the best way…

    also, “Tricksters”? really? but chiron don’t make everything so autentic?

    #
    • Michelle says:

      Does Chiron also aspect your Moon?

      also, “Tricksters”? really?
      Mercury is the original trickster. Mercury in aspect to anything is trickster-ish. 

      but chiron don’t make everything so autentic?
      I’m not sure what you mean by this.

      #
      • Atlast says:

        oh, yeah, it makes a square! that makes me don’t want to show my vulnerable side, right?
        but I feel that the mercury aspect complement it, I don’t want to show AND don’t like to talk about neeither write, even if I’m the only one who will read.

        “but chiron don’t make everything so authentic?” I meant that I thougt that chiron makes everything so unique, and, idk, real… like when it touches the sun: it makes the individual more human and and authentic person. I hope that explanation helps, haha, I feel that I messed even more…

        #
        • Michelle says:

          That makes sense. Mercury/Chiron could make someone an “authentic” communicator. That’s an interesting idea – I like it.

            oh god, they do, they really do.

            people say that i’m kind of dificult to deal with because i’m extreamly hard to be known. My mom complains a lot that I need to take a long time and lots of courage to finally say what happened in my life, specially things like first kiss and blah. And my friends needs to push me to say what I think about things.

            That’s something that I need to work in, since they are very annoying.

            #
          • billow says:

            “Authentic” is my new favorite word.  Thanks Atlast.

            It could have to do with uniqueness (uniquity?) or individuality that causes separation or feelings of separation.  It can put one in a vulnerable position in group where the individual is targeted with bullying or scapegoating.  It’s too bad that individual strength, that is going to win out anyway, is chastised.  Muffling or compromising authenticity too much or for too long dampens spirit.

            I considered my closest friends.  They are definitely authentic.  We don’t always agree with each other that is for sure, but we respect each other.  I always looked for what I called “redeeming qualities”.  I am replacing that with authenticity.  It seems like I need something to ring true to participate.  It helps me replace my thwarted expectations with the search for authenticity.  Seems more positive.

            My biggest communication problem has been trusting what I am told, especially from people with credentials.  It is really difficult for me to get out of the chain of command thing.  I want to believe the advertiser has the answers she/he claims to have.  I want to believe she/he is really there to do what she/he espouses.  Either there is something wrong with my hearing, or I must accept that she/he is human, too.   Sigh. 

            #
            • Michelle says:

              My biggest communication problem has been trusting what I am told, especially from people with credentials.There’s a weird thing that happens that if you have standing or credentials, you can’t have faults; or, people are stunned and shocked when you are wrong so you lose credibility. It all seems so 10th house to me. 

              #
              • billow says:

                It’s not having the credentials or the position, it’s the portrayal by individuals that they have everything under control because of their credentials.  Part of the reason I have been attracted to those who profess their proficiency, is that I mistakenly read that as confidence in themselves.  That means that in no way am I a threat to them.  I also mistakenly thought that the confidence I read, would mean that I was free to be who I am because I wouldn’t be expected to buy on to everything they believe.  For example, I would be allowed to have my own thoughts, religion, politics, etc.  I wouldn’t be expected to buy onto theirs.  In short, I wouldn’t have to sell my soul.  So no, I’m not against credentials and knowlege by any means.  It’s the on your knees and worship me as god on high that always throws me for a loop.  I can’t buy onto everything or do everything I am asked to do.   My blind trust can end me up as the fall guy. 

                And the 10th house to me is more about reputation than anything else.  Not like how well I look or am liked or how much I know or don’t know, but making conscious decisions that I can live with.  (although I learned in my early years how fast karma plays out.  It’s my set up, I just don’t get away with it.  Something the con finds hard to understand.)

                Wrong to me would be when I stand up and present my side of things, and then accept a position or a bright shiny object to keep quiet.   Wrong to me is also being verbally or physically attacked because I do not agree.   Freedom of speech .   .   .   is not always allowed. 

                #
    • billow says:

      There is probably a good reason for not talking about my vulnerable side.  My journals are filled with lamenting words.  The pages always listen to my pen.

    I love it. I really enjoy learning more about Chiron. As I read this post, I had a friend in mind and when I looked up his chart, he does indeed have a Mercury-Chiron contact. You really captured him.

    I can’t wait to read the rest of this series. I have a few Chiron aspects myself.

      I think it’s amazing when you can begin to look at people and pinpoint which aspects they have. It’s so beyond Sun signs. Being able to do this also reinforces that astrology works :)

    Awesome post :)
    I have the square, Chiron in Gemini-Mercury in Pisces.

    “Using words and language to heal yourself”
    This is so interesting, I love writing and reading, I need to write every day to feel good,lol. I can read in 5 different languages, and I enjoy it so much! (Venus in the 9th house though).

    I also realized that I can heal others through my words and way of thinking.

    “Learning to open up and talk about your problems.”This is a huge thing for me.

    “Words most definitely can hurt you.”
    Yes.

    I think Im lucky cause based on my Mercury position, I could easily had learning disabilities or sth, but it’s not the case at all, although my mind is absolutely hyperactive and I’ve only recently realized how to cope with the fact that I always tend to think way too much. On the other hand, I basically need to learn step by step how to express myself, especially when it comes to non-verbal communication and expressing feelings or my needs due to bad childhood experiences.
    All the things you mentioned about “Key to healing” are true  for me.

        Oh, I’m sorry…. Equal house…..In koch/Placidus/ Whole sign Chiron is in my 11th house.

        It took me quite a while to decide what seemed to resonate with me,but I think Chiron Rx in the 10th explains a few things perhaps about my difficult work history.

    “Saying the exact wrong thing at the wrong time…Having a knack for sticking your foot in your mouth..” Another area where I can say thanks to Saturn and Mercury being retrograde!

    This post resonates more and more every time I go back over it. If you’re interested, here’s an insight I just gained:

    (Using Placidus, but similar themes with Whole): Intercepted 10H Cancer Chiron makes a kite through my Earth grand trine, so Chiron sextile 12H Virgoan Mercury resonates with the descriptions of pain through words. I think this manifests as being unsure of what to say, fear of speaking for being hurt or hurting others, fear of public speaking for unique reasons. I also catch myself going back over and over and over in conversations to make sure everything ‘went ok’. Perhaps at some point in the past I used words that hurt someone or was hurt by someone’s words. On that point, I appreciate the optimism of your including healing potentials! It’s uplifting to be reminded that such oversensitivity DOES serve a purpose. :)

    Fantastical. I have a square between them. Most stuff I read seems good for me, I identified with it. I have a friend who said me the other day that I raise his self-steem when I talk to him. But it’s not always true, I guess it depends if the person really wants to feel better or not. Or if the person is hiding something. Or maybe they’re just blind with grief. Or even they just want attention at all costs. Other interesting thing is that when I’m saying something terribly stupid, everyone becomes silent in order to everyone hear my dumbness. It made me sad some time ago, but now I’m almost ok with it, it’s funny at least. I guess that chiron is really associated with pain, since communication is a pain for me and relationships are also pretty painful (chiron is in my seventh house and mercury is in my tenth). Chiron is also part of a cardinal grand cross in my chart, dealing with my first house cap neptune and my fourth house ari mars. I have bad timing, I can make people feel better or worst with words and I always forgett about anything beyond my fragmented plans, wich is why I am a terrible strategist.

    Aw man, I can’t believe – or rather I’m surprised – I don’t have have a Mercury/Chrion aspect with the way I’m so sensitive (in both good & bay ways, of course). Chrion opposes/square a handful of my plants but not this one. humm..

    In any event, I can’t wait until you get to the Mars/Chiron aspect; its should be an interesting experience for me, lol.

    This one makes me crazy cuz I have Mercury in the 11th trine chiron in the third Aquarius.  It has been good to think about, because how the energy set has played out in my life finally makes astrological sense.

        Well, unfortunately the trouble with a sibling is one way–my brother is, er, kind of a lost soul, to put it mildly. And one of my biggest problems growing up was not feeling listened to or understood, and I went back and forth from being kind of a loudmouth to being really timid and afraid to speak to people. My brain still tends to move faster than my mouth can keep up, but I’m actually a writer now, so communication has pretty much become my lifeblood.

  14. AriesGirl says:

    I start to realize that Chiron might add a kind of “never enough” feeling to the planet it touches… a bit similarly to Pluto. At least this is what I feel with my Moon and Mercury (Chiron squares both of them). With Mercury, I feel that my need for learning something new can never be satisfied, no matter how much I study/learn, I always feel the “need” to study more and more and more…. and its so hard to resist it.
    And with the Moon, its like that I crave for such emotional security whihc is simply can not be fullfilled in this world…

    What do yout think about it. Michelle?

    #
    • Michelle says:

      I can relate to that. I have Mercury conjunct Chiron, Pallas and Jupiter (with all in the 8th house and Jupiter on the 8/9 cusp) – I never think I know enough. No matter how much I know, there’s more that I don’t know. It doesn’t help that Saturn forms a very close square to Mercury and Chiron.

      • MsFullroller says:

        I can definitely relate as well

  15. Anonymous says:

    I have a Mercury-Chiron trine.  I never knew how to interpret this other than “It’s easy to talk about my pain” but that’s terribly boring. My pain and talking about it. I do have sibling issues and those issues make me dread having a partner.  How do you separate out Chiron issues from Saturn issues?  Saturn and Mercury are in mutual reception in my chart as well (and if you’re using Placidus, it’s a 3rd/6th house exchange as well.)

    #
    • Michelle says:

      That’s a good question about separating Chiron and Saturn. In my own chart I have Mercury conjunct Chiron both square Saturn all within less than degree. Chiron/Saturn has more to do with authority, restriction, limitation, expectations, fear and experiences of failure.

    (I’ve been told that Mercury sextile Neptune is the quintessential writer’s aspect.)   

    Interesting … I’ve never heard that. 

    Learning for the sake of learning doesn’t seem to be appreciated until you get to be retirement age (that’s what I’ve noticed). 

    #
    • Writer&Teacher says:

      re: Mercury and Neptune … I read that some years back now, and can’t recall which book.  In any case, I ran a few purely unscientific surveys on charts I’d collected of my writer friends.  I found that every single one of them had SOME Mercury-Neptune aspect, not just the sextile, but one of the major aspects or, in one case, the quintile.  Also, Mercury tended to be involved with larger aspect patterns in their charts, often the “big” aspect pattern, if there was a single one that stood out more than the others.

      Now, some caveats … I had only about 10-11 of these, but I restricted myself to published authors.  Still, 10-11 is not a statistically sound sample!  Furthermore, a lot of them were roughly of my age, give or take 10 years, so many of them had the Uranus=Pluto/Neptune conjunction/sextile of that era.  Ergo, if Mercury hit one of those planets, it tended to be in aspect to all three.  Last, ALL these writers save 1 were SF/F authors.  There were some men among them, but most were women.

      So, any of those factors might have something to do with it, but I did find it extremely interesting that ALL of them had a Mecury-Neptune aspect.

      I’m sure somebody with a better collection of charts could do a better survey. :-)

      #
    • MsFullroller says:

      I’ve heard that as well, not the quintessential part though. I have this aspect but have not understood when it was said that I should be a writer. Writing has not been my strongest talents, IMHO.

      You are correct about the learning for the sake of learning not being appreciated. However, as I read both comments, I can see how my learning for the sake of learning has been lots of benefit to me.

        I have Chiron conjunct ascendant, trine a Mercury conjunct Saturn, trine Moon. Somewhat like a grand trine if Chiron was considered a planet. Yes I definetly think differently than others. I always blamed it on my Mercury conjunct Saturn, but now I see it may have a little to do with Mercury trine Chiron. I also perceive things differently than others. I don’t trust my siblings and they have screwed me over and not cared about me. father wasn’t there either. So far spot on. Read the Chiron 1st house, Chiron Saturn and Chiron Mercury so far and spot on.

    4th house Chiron in Aquarius (2 degrees from the 5th house cusp) opposes Uranus in Leo in the 10th. Been self-employed all my life, ups and downs, work from home, done this been there, but one thing started in school and 50 years later its more alive than ever…writing. I can write with much more ease than talk – even to someone I know well. Sometimes I read later what I wrote and don’t know where it came from, don’t remember THINKING it – it seems to have bypassed my conscious mind. Great satisfaction and clarity gained through writing, even if I just do it for myself.   ‘Learning to heal your fragmented perception of the world. Learning to
    bring all of your thoughts together. Bringing your various learning
    experiences together into a cohesive whole. Creating new learning
    disciplines and paradigms. Reclaiming missing memories.’

    I have been reading books and articles about astrology since January 2009….

    I am a Gemini with a Scorpio AC so Imagine my thrust for learning and I have Jupiter conjunct Sun in Gemini too.

    This is the best article I have ever read in my entire life.
    Thank you.

        thanx for that.I feel like printing it out to show to people whenever I hear ‘what do you mean’…which is often the case.My Chiron is in the 12th house conjunct Sun and Mercury in Taurus (intercepted).learning difficulties?big time?i understand in my own way but puting it into words always a struggle.photography is my means of communication,though never show it to nobody. have reached the point when i just don’t want to talk at all sometimes,as my thoughts just don’t translate to spoken languageI can relate to 99% of the above.all the best!

    Hi. I have Chiron in Pisces 12th house square mercury in sag (8th or 9th). Which one of the description goes with that? I have a hard time expressing myself in words and often say something that is insignificant really instead of saying what I really mean. It takes a while to get to the point especially with some people who are “authorities”. Been really wondering how to share authentically and not feel worried that I will be too vulnerable. Any insight? Thanks.

      With those houses involved I would recommend brushing up on nonverbal communication. There’s an awful lot you can “say” through a smile, meaningful eye contact, and emotive power. Verbal and nonverbal go hand in hand and people pick up on body language consciously or not. Most of the time people are not listening to you with undivided attention anyway!

    I have Mercury exactly 12 degrees from my Chiron…so a loose conjunction (if you could even call it that) but I definitely can relate to this post. It doesn’t hurt that my Mercury/Chiron midpoint is right on top of my north node either. The whole first paragraph is me, especially “Feeling pain from not having your voice heard. Learning to open up and talk about your problems. The need to talk about your “pain point.” Talking is painful. Expressing your thoughts through words is painful.”

    Just the other day as I attempted to share an experience that shaped me to my class I got totally choked up and started crying. But I enjoyed it though…I let it out and I wasn’t silent about it. I could own it, and it just felt right no matter how much it hurt to speak.

    “The need to heal relationships with siblings. Pain associated with siblings. Feeling wounded by a sibling.” <—This. Yes. Most definitely. And how do they hurt me? With words…all the time…but I've learned to deal with it.

    " A healing journey through information and learning. Embracing a self-informed learning style. Self-taught. Taking responsibility for your own education. Creating the information that you need. Realizing that there are gaps in the available information, or in the way it is presented. Taking it upon yourself to fill in gaps in learning and education. Searching for the missing links and connections to make information come together. A sudden epiphany – and then you get it." Yes!! I love learning…always have, always will. I also feel as if the more knowledge you have the more potential you have in healing yourself or others or whatever problem is at hand. Nothing is new, just missing from our perception.

    Hi- I was just looking at my chart and i noticed that my 8th house mercury squares Pluto, uranus, mars and chiron. It also has a trine to my Aries ascendent. I have a natural house chart (mercury is in sag though ).
    What I am wondering is if using and being aware the trine aspect can help to integrate the mind – or if you can share what you think all of the squares are pointing to. Seems significant. Thank you so much~Deborah

      PS. Mars, Pluto, uranus is in the 6th. Chiron is in the 12th. :)
