SUN CONJUNCT MERCURY
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.
It is important to understand that Mercury rules the reasoning and conscious mind that forms conclusions. Mercury is a communicator, traveler, salesperson and an intellectual, while the Sun rules the identity, ego, individuality, power and pride.
I call this aspect the 'All Circuits Are Busy' aspect or TMI (too much information) where it makes it hard to process, understand and connect. This is when the mental wires can easily sizzle and fry during its presence, especially during an air or fire sign conjunction, and I mean OVER-POWERED, FRIED AND SIZZLED! In fact, when Mercury and the Sun are 4 degrees or less from each other, this leads to complete burnout and then nothing gets done. That's exactly why you need to re-engage, re-orient and re-inject yourself back into your Life. It can become very hard to communicate your thoughts or even process your thoughts. It's like overloading a power strip with electrical gadgets. Too much is just too damn much and thoughts get scrambled. This is when a person needs to disengage and get their thoughts together because it's just too much if there are too many questions that require too many answers. Test taking would be extremely challenging.
When the mental circuits get overloaded it creates 'mental blindness'. It's like when you drive and there is a car coming up beside you and there is the driver's blindspot. All you have to do is turn your head a little tiny bit over your shoulder and alas, lookie there . . there it is, you can see the 2,000 pound car that was hidden in your blindspot.
Did you follow the trial of Jodi Arias, the woman who murdered her boyfriend? She has the Sun Conjunct Mercury with a 03 degree 34 minute orb. I followed this trial every single day on HLN. When Jodi Arias said to Juan Martinez, "Usually, when men like you are screaming at me or grilling me, it makes my brain scramble" I yelled back to her, "That's because you have the Sun conjunct Mercury in your birth date!!!"
This conjunction usually lasts for about a week before and after its exact conjunction. So the fix is to look for ways to communicate your thoughts and ideas. Not to mention it is a super time to listen to the thoughts and ideas of others. When the Sun is shining to brightly up close and personal to Mercury, it may be difficult to see yourself as others do because we are being blinded by ourselves. Don't be too surprised if someone offers you an opinion about you that doesn't seem anything like you . . to you. This is certainly mental energy at its very core but like any other astrological orb of influence, it all depends on how you choose to channel it. You still get a choice.
