MERCURY CONJUNCT URANUS
A conjunction or conjunct symbol is an aspect that emphasizes and brings together the energies of the planets involved. Conjunctions focus and intensify the energy much like a laser beam on an exact point in your chart. These planets have their own uniqueness and when tag-teamed their energy is intensified even more.
Mercury is the planet of the intellect, the reasoning mind and mental abilities, while Uranus is the planet of a sudden change in circumstance, much like a lightning strike. Uranus also represents innovation, invention and independence. It literally strikes out and strikes out on its own, like lightning. Uranus is unconventional and electrifying; thereby bringing about sudden change in an instant, which can show up as being erratic. You can pretty much expect the unexpected when Uranus is involved. Uranus is also the higher octave of Mercury, so this takes the energy to a whole new level, especially in a conjunction where the two planets involved intensify the energies of each other.
This is the mark of 'mental genius' and 'original thought' as Mercury rules the mind and Uranus takes it its highest level. This placement gives a lightning quick mind and sensible wit. This aspect also gives flashes (like lightning) of intuitive insight and foresight. Mental telepathy is also present with this aspect. This aspect is perfect for those studying astrology, especially if it shows up in the natal chart. If this aspect shows up as a transit, then it will help astrological study and understanding to a higher degree while it is present. The individual with this aspect in their chart is able to tap the Universal Mind for sight and guidance.
This aspect is perfect for those studying the sciences, engineering, electronics or the study of something where understanding on a micro level is needed. This makes communication through electronics more likely. Since the scientific mind is present, then everything has to be 'proven' to be believed. This helps the individual solve problems in an original way that others just didn't seem to consider. Individuals with this placement in their chart are usually highly educated and they are experts in their field. I have also seen this aspect in individuals who have no degree and are incredibly intelligent.
Mercury conjunct Uranus can show up as intellectual insecurity or intellectual conceit, simply because this aspect can show up in someone with no degrees or someone with multiple degrees. The individual with no degree is prone to bragging about smart they are and how they are a member of MENSA, while the other individual may have several degrees and will have graduated summa cum laude, not only from high school, but from college as well. The latter individual may even have an advanced degree, such as a doctorate and is highly respected in their field.
This aspect is incisive with an ingenious mind. Thoughts and speech are erratic and inventive with progressive topics. Opinions are ahead of their time.
