Mercury transits occur when Mercury travels directly between the Sun and an advanced planet, visible to us on Earth and occurring around May or November. Transits can form conjunction (in the same sign as your natal Mercury), sextile, square or opposition depending on which constellation is involved.

This transit can bring out diplomacy, charm and social graces while encouraging negotiations, presentations of ideas and romantic overtures. Furthermore, it helps develop judgment skills.

Mars Conjunct Natal Mercury

Mercury conjunct Mars can greatly enhance one’s communication abilities. This transit can be invaluable when writing or public speaking; it also can enhance one’s tendency toward arguments and provoke sudden action, so it’s wise to avoid making defense of one’s ideas an integral part of communication; use that energy instead to write or do work that requires mental focus instead.

The combination of two planets creates an intoxicating mix of irritability and intellect, so it is wise to be on guard against arguments that lead to anger and avoid driving or handling sharp tools during this transit, so as to prevent accidents due to sudden impulse responses. Furthermore, this transit may bring health concerns such as fever or eye issues that should also be monitored closely.

Ascending Mercury and Mars can create either soft or hard aspects in our birth charts, with their outcomes depending on where they fall in our charts and which aspects they take up. Some examples of hard aspects are squares, oppositions and semi-squares which tend to provoke stronger responses than sextiles, trines or conjunctions.

Mars-Mercury conjunctions can be powerfully influential for those involved in research and development, providing an ideal time for brainstorming, sharing ideas with others and brainstorming new ones.
