Insights on Mercury-Pluto

One of the more interesting planetary combinations of energies to me is the Mercury-Pluto pair which is associated with propaganda, indepth thinking, speaking, and probing, and is similar in nature to Mercury when posited in plutonian Scorpio.

Reinhold Ebertin, in his ‘The Combination of Stellar Influences’ gives Mercury-Pluto’s principle as: ‘the art of persuasion, suggestion.’

Psychologically, the pair gives restless thinking, a quick grasp of every situation, sharp criticism, good observation powers, intellectual triumph over others, slyness or cunning, crafty subtlety, and diplomacy (where one may use the other traits.

Wielding influence – especially over the masses through speaking or writing – is one the attributes of Mercury-Pluto and its power is invaluable to critics and demagogues everywhere.

Negatively, plagiarism and fraudulent representations or misrepresentations may occur with aspects or other links to the Mercury-Pluto combo (such as Mercury in Scorpio, Scorpio on the 3rd or 6th cusp – houses naturally ruled by Mercury. Ex: George W. Bush has Mercury conj Pluto in Leo – in 1st house of Self, the ‘propaganda catapulter’ as he called himself.)

Overuse of Mercury-Pluto energies can result in disturbances or irritation in the nervous system through excessive zeal – so slow down, Mercury-Pluto, your fanatic side may be showing to your disadvantage!

In fact, hasty thinking followed by premature action, impatience, and overestimating one’s abilities are also dangers with this blend.

Positively there can be success through speaking or writing particularly with specialized subjects but pacing oneself is important for best results.

For more indepth information check out Chirotic Journal’s excellent article ‘Mercury Pluto: Insight or Inquisition?’ concerning this fascinating pair of planets.

Can ‘vintage shopping’ help save the environment?

Maybe not so much but it can certainly look stylish, oui?

And here’s a second view from a different angle!
