The interpretations on this page are for progressed Sun aspects to natal Mercury, except for Sun conjunction Mercury which can apply for both progressed Sun to natal Mercury and to progressed Mercury.
Note: The interpretations for progressed Sun aspects on this page are from The Progressed Horoscope by Alan Leo (1906). Be sure to also see the interpretations for your progressed Moon in the houses and progressed ascendant sign.
Progressed Sun Conjunction, or Semi-sextile, or Sextile, or Trine, or Parallel Mercury
The Sun progressed to any of these aspects signifies an important change of consciousness, a much higher state of mentality being experienced under such influence, which is good for travel, changes, literary work, correspondence, interviews, writings, and in short for all those affairs in which an active mind, diplomatic dealings with others, and adaptation to new and fresh surroundings or undertakings are required.
Any connection with solicitors, agents, literary persons, and those who act as intermediaries will now be successful and advantageous. It is, however, rather the influence of mental quickening, and is hence the forerunner of greater activities to come in the future rather than the immediate indicator of events; so that it depends for outward effect much more upon the lunar aspects than any other solar influence.
Progressed Sun Semi-square or Square Mercury
The Sun progressed to these afflictions of Mercury, the mental ruler, denotes troubles of a mental nature and the experience of anxiety, worry, etc., in various ways. The mind will be unsettled, changeable, and prone to make mistakes and to look at things from an unfavourable standpoint. Care is necessary in dealings with agents, messengers, servants, inferiors, or those who transact business for others, such as solicitors, lawyers, and literary persons; caution is advisable with regard to letters, writing, signing papers, and in all correspondence or personal interviews. This influence of the Sun and Mercury is not wholly bad, but tends away from full realisation, preventing matters coming to fruition.
