Uranus Conjunct Mercury
© 2004 Curtis Manwaring
Transiting Uranus conjunct your natal Mercury. Ideas that you may have never considered before seem to come out of the blue. Intuition and insight seem to play a greater role in your life and your mental speed is increased. This combination is often associated with genius and breakthroughs in science, technology, and mathematics and it is an excellent time to take up study in these areas. Daily life becomes more interesting and exciting. Be careful of a tendency to become nervous or jump to conclusions before checking the facts. This may not be the best time to make plans or to travel, because there is the tendency for things to turn out in ways that are unexpected. Some people will have trouble containing their speech and may say things that they later regret.
If Mercury is lord of your first house, you may have trouble maintaining a consistent path and direction for your goals in life right now. Many possibilities present themselves to you now. You may have bouts of nervousness or anxiety if your pace becomes too hectic.
If lord of your 2nd, be careful now about mixing up numbers and accounting errors. You probably will not feel certain about your financial stability during this period. Make sure that you are properly equipped before you go into any situation.
If lord of your 3rd, many ideas and new possibilities run across your mind now. It may be hard to seize on any idea long enough to thoroughly work out it's implications now so take notes. Your neighborhood becomes more interesting or filled with gossip and rumors or chance encounters while doing errands.
If lord of the 4th, stability in your domestic situation may be hard to come by now. You may have to relocate to another city during this period. You may feel a sense of estrangement from your relatives or may desire more independence from your parents.
If lord of the 5th, be careful about how you express yourself now. Communication may not come out as intended or your speech will have multiple interpretations and double entendre's which could lead to embarassing situations. If you have children, they may be more knavish and harder to predict than usual.
If lord of the 6th, watch your health in regards to nervous disorders or anxiety. Your office or co-workers may be more chaotic and the office environment more hectic than usual. Routine may be hard to maintain. Watch for clerical errors.
If lord of the 7th, contracts and agreements that you have with partners may dissolve during this period. Greater freedom is needed in existing relationships, including marriage.
If lord of the 8th, be careful to inspect the details in matters of estate or taxes during this period or you may miss out on inheritance or be subject to a tax audit.
If lord of the 9th, travel does not turn out as planned during this period, but may prove interesting if you are flexible enough. Matters of philosophy and education are favored, but legal issues need to be carefully handled.
If lord of the 10th, you may be given a new opportunity in your career for advancement, particularly if it involves journalism or the media. Your communication skills will need to be in top form during this period. Sometimes this indicates a complete change of career into a relatively unrelated field.
If lord of the 11th, you may be inundated with advice and have a hard time choosing what path to take. In order to resolve this dilemma, you will have to become more self reliant.
If lord of the 12th, be careful about mental or nervous anxiety build-up during this time and make sure that you get enough rest. Do not act on information immediately as it could lead you astray. Wait for proof.
