Mercury’s transits to your natal Pluto cause a lot of mental intensity. You may even say things unconsciously or spend the entire day consumed by obsessions. You can also communicate with persuasive force and energy. You can make a penetrating analysis of human nature.
However, you should be cautious about who you talk to because inner conflicts can be triggered, resulting in impulsive behavior and psychological issues in either you or others. You may be deeply understood by others during Mercury-Pluto transits, or you may have intense and heated arguments and struggles. There is no middle ground.
Essentially, these periods can help you better understand yourself. They help in the discovery of deep psychological issues, particularly communication patterns. They help you change the way you communicate with others. You may not want to accept certain things, but being stubborn and refusing to give in can be harmful. These are times for you to penetrate the invisible world and work on your inner and metaphysical development. These are good days to see a psychologist or get some deep healing therapy.
Transit Mercury Conjunct Natal Pluto
When transiting Mercury is in conjunction to your natal Pluto, the force of your will is behind your thoughts and words. You have plans to change things and the necessary power to do so. You speak with authority now and can convince others that you know what you’re talking about. However, try to reach out to others without provoking them. You can say very hurtful things today if you think you have to defend yourself. Try to be open-minded with others and tolerant of their beliefs. You don’t always have to be right, and they will appreciate seeing that in you.
Whatever you tackle today, you will want to get at its deepest roots. Your mental activity now has a very penetrating quality. You uncover the truth behind appearances, both your own and those of others. You can see the motivations of others and also recognize your own. Do not abuse this energy by manipulating or attempting to change a situation that is not worth changing; instead, put it to good use by conducting a thorough analysis and solving problems from the recent past.
If you have an obsessive tendency, you may dwell on a thought all day, but before acting on it, consider whether it is worthwhile. If you’ve lost something, you might spend the entire day looking for it or worrying about it, leaving no time for other thoughts. You may believe you’re right about something and refuse to give in, arguing the point to the end.
Transit Mercury Square Natal Pluto
When transiting Mercury is square to your natal Pluto, it’s important to keep an open mind and avoid becoming obsessed with an idea or thought. You worry a lot and do not let others or yourself relax. You easily become defensive and try to impose your point of view on others, or you may encounter someone who acts this way towards you.
You may experience verbal boxing matches today along with a test of wills. Propaganda may be spread that just isn’t true. Don’t bully people into seeing the rightness of your cause. Be tolerant of others’ viewpoints. Remember, you’re not always right.
A deep sense of frustration may cause you to engage in compulsive behavior. Don’t act on your thoughts; instead, observe yourself and recognize your subconscious patterns. You may not get what you want in your interactions with others, but it is interesting to recognize your thoughts when this happens so that you can get in touch with your inner dimensions and gain more control. Everything affects you deeply and can also greatly impact your environment, either positively or negatively.
Transit Mercury Trine Natal Pluto, or Transit Mercury Sextile Natal Pluto
When transiting Mercury is trine, or sextile, to your natal Pluto, your powers of perception are very sharp. You can get right to the heart of the matter with the skill of a competent surgeon. You might want to play detective today and uncover some of nature’s secrets. You long for a deeper understanding of things and have the skills today to do so. Share your discoveries with others. Conversations with others may profoundly affect your thinking.
This transit helps you solve problems and find solutions, either by discussing a significant issue with someone or by delving deeper into your motivations and unconscious patterns. It also allows you to get in touch with the inner workings of others. You can examine everything that bothers you and explain it forcefully and clearly. You can even persuade others to change their minds. You can also show them valuable truths.
You penetrate everything that is hidden behind appearances and the subconscious, so consulting a therapist or a psychologist is extremely beneficial now. You have a powerful influence on others and can find deep meaning behind little things that happen today, and you may feel transformed as a result. You are attracted to the mysterious and all things secret.
Transit Mercury Opposite Natal Pluto
You may experience verbal boxing matches along with a test of wills when transiting Mercury is in opposition to your natal Pluto. Propaganda may be spread that just isn’t true. Someone may try to convince you of something you do not want to accept, or you may have a strong argument and try to talk them out of something. Be careful with subversive or dishonest methods, as they will lead to more conflicts later. Don’t bully people into seeing the rightness of your cause. Be tolerant of others’ viewpoints. Remember, you’re not always right.
It’s a good time to get to the bottom of a problem, whether it’s personal or about your relationship with another person. This transit makes it possible to conduct any type of research or investigation in order to resolve a problem or conflict. It’s a favorable time to discover secrets and even speak to a therapist or psychologist. This transit helps you understand the mechanisms of your unconscious mind.
However, don’t become obsessed with an idea today because it won’t let anything else into your head. While this may favor the resolution of a pending issue, it may also complicate matters in other cases. Keep an open mind. Let the power of your mind help you to have a deeper communication with others.
I will describe what a boy I know of went through when transiting Mercury went stationary square to his natal Pluto.
As the transit came into orb he became ill whilst at school one day, and had to be taken home by his mum. Then every day for the next week (or however long the transit was in orb) he claimed illness, thus refusing to go to school. Eventually he was taken to the doctor, who verified that there was nothing physically wrong with him.
The issue? It turned out that he was getting quite badly bullied by classmates. Thus it appeared that he was using illness as an excuse to avoid school (and the bullies).
I would imagine that the transit must have felt horrible for the boy at the time, and yet the end result was that the bullying was dealt with, and afterwards his school life appeared to greatly improve.
when my mercury square pluto transit came into exact orb it happened to be a morning when my 16 year old son and I had to do some errands. he was driving as a student driver and I was sitting beside him when we went to take a blood test at the GP`s and then went to the hospital, where he had some minor examination while I was waiting in the car. all morning he seemed to be annoyed and short-spoken, which was not pleasant at all as we had to be together and also it would be his last day at home for the next three weeks. so many things had to be organized, but he seemed to not care very much. after lunch on our way to his father`s place, again him driving, I was glad to get rid of him but we were talking about some soccer player`s father when the following happened: at a junction he was hesitant to go and I thought without saying it, ah ok, he is waiting for the lorry to pass when all of a sudden he did go. he must have overseen the lorry and I screamed: be carful! he braked abruptly shouting abusive words to me and how much I get on his nerves. although I was shocked by this sudden attack and very irritated by his behaviour, which seemed not to take into account in what danger he had brought both of us, I managed to only in- and exhale and observe my feelings without confronting him, which I would normally have done. but it seemed pointless in the very situation. so we did not talk or say good bye later.
do you think my containing myself and trying to understand his puberty mood enabled him to behave in such an inadequate way? i must say that normally he is a very well tempered and polite young man.
should I have addressed his unkind and ungrateful behaviour in the morning instead of trying to understand and stay unaffected by it?
have I projected something on him?
I would very much appreciate your thoughts on this situation and mercury square my pluto.
thank you and best regards,
