     Mercury Positive/Negative with Ascendant
     You are restless, high-strung and have a lot  of nervous energy which
     makes it difficult for you to relax and settle down. You like to be on
     the go and involved with several projects all at the same time. Your
     mind is active and you are continually on the search for new ideas and
     information. You need the  stimulus of communicating with others and
     you do not like to be left alone for very long at a time. It is
     sometimes difficult for you to stop your brain from racing here and
     there and sometimes you wish you just had a switch so you could turn
     it on and off in order to get some peace.
     
     Mercury Positive/Negative with Jupiter
     You like to look at and plan things from the larger viewpoint. You are
     not as good at working with detail as you are in seeing the big
     picture. Your ideas are always on a grand scale and you do not like to
     get bogged down in trivialities. Because of your great optimism you
     may romise more than you can deliver. You have the tendency to
     exaggerate whatever it is you are talking about, including yourself
     and perhaps your own abilities. There are times when you just plain
     talk too much or say the same things over and over, figuring maybe you
     weren't understood or heard the first time you said them. You have the
     tendency to check and re-check things over and  over even  though you
     know they were fine the first time, like setting the alarm clock or
     checking to see if you locked the front door. At times you can be
     impractical because of the scale of your visions. Travel is especially
     interesting to you as it gives you a chance to be exposed to and soak
     up new knowledge. You are always ready to let other people know  what
     your opinions and viewpoints are, even though they haven't asked.
     Philosophical speculation and theorizing about abstract concepts are
     fun for you. You're always ready to play Devil's advocate even if  you
     happen to agree with your opponent's point of view. You just like a
     good  discussion, argument or debate. You enjoy mental sparring
     matches.
 
     You are interested in the broad view, in universal principles and
     systems, in seeing connecting relationships and patterns, and in
     seeing the whole picture rather than the component  parts. You have
     great respect and thirst for knowledge and education is very important
     to  you, whether it is the formal kind or the informal kind that
     continues long past college days. You love to teach and to pass on
     your knowledge and experiences to others. As a teacher you learn as
     much from your students as they learn from you because you are always
     questioning and wondering about this and that. Writing and speaking
     are also two avenues that you may pursue and it wouldn't be surprising
     if you had some sort of connection to broadcasting, publishing or
     advertising. You are a natural salesperson and people tend to trust
     you and believe what you tell them.
 
     You are perhaps better at dreaming up schemes than in implementing
     them. You are just as happy if someone else does the actual work after
     you have thought up what needs doing. You have a direct, open, frank
     and honorable mental attitude and you do not  go around  intentionally
     trying to deceive people. Your optimism and faith in the  future help
     you succeed in all your activities. At times you can display a certain
     stubbornness of mind and thought. You like variety and want  to be  as
     accomplished as possible in as many areas as you can be. Just be
     careful that you do not end up the Jack-of-all-trades and  the master
     of none, unless, of course, that is really what you want for yourself.
     
     Mercury Positive/Negative with Mars
     You have an alert, quick and ready mind for any mental activity,
     exercise or game. You love a good debate and you are ever-ready to
     learn more about almost anything. You love to read and it is perhaps
     the way you get most of your information. You enjoy working on several
     projects at a time and you probably have some sort of mechanical
     ability. You love working with your hands and you may even be
     ambidextrous. When you speak, you not only speak with your  mouth but
     with your hands as well. There  may be mathematical or scientific
     ability  with  this aspect. Along with a sharp mind comes a sharp
     tongue. At times you display no tact whatsoever when you speak your
     mind and you need to learn to think before you speak. Hoof-in-mouth
     syndrome is something that is all too familiar with you. You love
     sarcasm and you don't mind a little good-natured  taunting, either on
     the giving end or the receiving  end. You generally express your
     thoughts in a clear, decisive, forceful and convincing style. You have
     leadership abilities and can talk up a storm, whether you really know
     what you are talking about or not. A little b.s. never hurt anyone,
     right? You love pointing out the flaws and discrepancies in someone
     else's arguments. You can be verbally aggressive and abrasive at times
     and there are times where you overstate your case or offend people by
     your unadorned frankness. You can be an effective spokesperson, lawyer
     or salesperson. You have the power to persuade just from using the
     sheer force of words. You may have writing talent and ability as well,
     particularly  geared toward criticism or satire. You love mental
     challenges. You are quite independent, determined, courageous, with
     the energy to succeed in life. Learn to think before speaking, though,
     since you could easily lose friends through your bluntness and
     sarcasm.
     
     Mercury Positive/Negative with Neptune
     You tend to daydream and let your imagination run away with you. You
     are idealistic, visionary, imaginative and perhaps psychic. There is a
     decided lack of willpower at times and you are many times content just
     to flow with the tides of  life rather than taking an active
     participation in directing your own path. You are attracted to the
     arts and have creative talent and ability with painting, poetry and
     especially music. If you do not play a  stringed instrument, then at
     least you are attracted to the sounds they make. Their music is like
     hearing a voice from your true home in the spirit worlds. Because of
     your sensitiveness, you are sometimes easily led without your
     knowledge as the power of suggestion has great effect on you.
     Important character changes are difficult for  you to  make as  things
     are not seen clearly. There is danger through drugs and alcohol and
     you would be wise to stay away from them. You may not have as large a
     backbone as others and for this reason it is important that you watch
     what sorts of influences and environments you surround yourself with.
     You are not the steadiest of people. Stay away from all negative
     psychic influences such as Ouija  boards, seances, hypnotism and
     mediums. Your mind does not function in a linear, logical manner and
     you are often unable to express your thoughts in simple, everyday
     language.  Symbols, images, art, or music  better express your ideas.
     For this reason you may not do as well in formal book-learning
     situations as in simply having someone tell you or show you something
     firsthand. Flights of imagination and fantasy carry you into strange
     and beautiful worlds and you could develop the ability to write down
     some of your perceptions to share with others, for example, by writing
     fantasy, fiction, lyrics, or poetry. You are sensitive to nuances and
     innuendo, but may become confused between imagination and true
     perception. You may have  difficulty concentrating  your attention  on
     practical or mundane activities or in  separating truth  from fiction.
     You are attracted to the metaphysical and the  mystical. There  may be
     interest in photography. There may be problems with the nerves and you
     perhaps need to take a little time every day for some peace and quiet.
     This aspect is very beneficial to  writers, especially of romance or
     adventure novels, for musicians and for actors.
     
     Mercury Positive/Negative with Pluto
     You are naturally suspicious and curious about all kinds of hidden and
     secret things. You love playing the detective, ferreting out any and
     all secret information. You are not content to scratch the surface of
     knowledge, you have to go as deep as possible in order to seek out the
     truth. You  love a  good mystery and subjects  like death and dying,
     reincarnation, sex and mystical or natural methods of  healing are  of
     interest to you. You like to know what everyone is doing or thinking,
     but you rarely divulge what is on your mind. Because of your love of
     research and investigation you may well be attracted to the  fields of
     psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, psychiatry or counseling in general.
     You have great powers of concentration and a penetrating mind. You are
     able to size up people and situations quickly and accurately.  You are
     keenly observant and very little gets by you. You have sort of an x-
     ray vision  regarding the motivations and intentions of others. The
     occult side of life fascinates you and gives you plenty  of scope  for
     your researching talents and interests. Stories of mystery, intrigue,
     espionage, science fiction, etc. are favorite reading for you. You may
     have a morbid side to you because of all this interest in underground
     or undercover subjects. But that is not the way you see it at all. You
     just want to learn everything you can about subjects that most people
     couldn't care less about. You have strong opinions with the power to
     influence others. Some may think you are almost fanatical or obsessive
     about your beliefs or what you choose to direct your thinking upon.
     Just remember to keep an open mind to all points of view. With that
     attitude you will learn even more about the things you study. Lastly,
     you may have a highly geared nervous system which can cause impatience
     and irritability. You must learn when you need to give your mind  a
     rest.
     
     Mercury Positive/Negative with Saturn
     Your  mind  is  scientific, serious, deep and capable of great
     concentration. You are a relatively slow thinker, but you are very
     thorough. You enjoy studying or thinking in solitude and you rarely
     offer an opinion on any matter until you have thoroughly considered
     it. You are subject to periodic bouts of depression and are cautious
     and reserved by nature. Conservatism is your natural mode of
     operation. You are something of a skeptic and may be narrow-minded and
     closed to new ideas, especially if you have no concrete proof or
     scientific evidence as to their validity and correctness. You have an
     aptitude for research or doing mental work which requires precise,
     organized thinking, attention to  detail, and a methodical  approach.
     Socially, you tend to be reserved, serious, uncommunicative and
     uncomfortable with light, frivolous conversation. You love work and
     are very conscientious about carrying out your duties and
     responsibilities. For you, work is fun.  Anything that doesn't
     accomplish something practical and productive is considered more or
     less a waste of time and energy. People who listen to you talk know
     that you speak with the confidence of authority.  You have  wonderful
     organizing ability and executive capacity. You are practical and
     deliberate and you have difficulty expressing your affection for
     others. You have a tendency toward tooth decay.
     
     Mercury Positive/Negative with Uranus
     You are a lightning quick thinker who is constantly coming up with new
     ways of doing things. You have an intuitive genius for originality.
     You are unconventional, weird, a bit eccentric and you demand complete
     freedom of expression. New ideas, discoveries and inventions thrill
     you to no end. You love  keeping up with the latest state-of-the-art
     theories and products. Because you grasp ideas so quickly, you may
     have difficulty being patient with those around you who do not pick up
     on things as quickly as you do. You understand scientific and
     mechanical theory easily. You are indeed blessed with a sharp,
     brilliant, swift and clever mentality. You may be attracted to
     electronics, astrology or astronomy and metaphysics in general. You
     have a decidedly high-strung and nervous temperament and you find it
     difficult to relax. You get bored rather easily so you need lots of
     things going on at the same time. You enjoy travel as there is always
     something new to learn or think about. Your  mind functions in an
     intuitive, non-linear fashion, and sudden insights and ideas often
     come to you "out of the  blue". You do well in open, unpredictable
     atmospheres where flexibility and quick responses are required. You
     are self-reliant and demand freedom of thought and expression at all
     times.
     ****************************************************

     writer or jewelry designer. This aspect usually gives talent in the

     heart. You are an upstanding, moral and generous person who  would not

     persuading to others. You have a sense of humor that is more satirical
     or sarcastic than it is outrightly funny. You are good with your hands
     and may be ambidextrous. You are very vocal and adamant  in expressing
     yourself and your hands frequently help you convey your message. You

     people  and  making  decisions.  You  have  an aptitude  for writing,
     especially criticism. You aren't afraid to tell people when they are

     because of the abundance of energy you have. It may be good for you to

     also help in this regard.

     reality by bringing them  into your  rational, conscious,  and logical

     mind and bring the ideas found  there into your consciousness. Your
     mind is inspired and you have an aptitude  for art, creative writing,

     book-learning. You have a love of the sea  because of  its ability  to
     soothe  your  nerves. You  have a  high degree of  intuition and

     rather than breadth of knowledge. You do not disclose your intentions
     easily, although you want to know what everyone  else is up to or
     planning. You prefer to work behind the scenes as that way there are
     less people to disturb you and there are also less  people that know
     what you're really doing. You may have healing ability with your hands
     and perhaps could be an excellent masseuse or physical therapist. You
     probably have mechanical ability and you enjoy taking things apart  to
     see how they work. You are always up for a good mystery  and ferreting

     organizing anything. Your mind is disciplined and structured  and you
     are able to accomplish a great deal mentally because of this. You  are
     not a particularly fast thinker, but  you are  thorough, comprehensive
     and deep. You are basically a serious individual who prefers  work and
     duty to frivolity. You are well-suited to analyzing myriad details and
     problems  that  others consider too tedious, repetitive, technical,
     time-consuming or difficult. You are discriminating and highly logical
     and rational and you like to get right down to business. You have
     executive ability and can lead in  almost any situation. People can
     count  on you and you take great pride in  your work and
     accomplishments. You may prefer specializing in one area of expertise
     rather than  spreading yourself  thin across  many subject areas. You
     prefer studying alone where you can ponder your own thoughts in peace
     and quiet. You are quick to see the weaknesses in  other people's
     logic. You are highly  suited for any work which requires organized
     thinking,  precision, and  a  methodical  approach. You are self-
     controlled, practical, responsible and  disciplined in your thinking.
     Your physical health tends  to be  strong with  excellent recuperative

     You possess lightning-quick physical and mental  responses to  stimuli

     sit still. You love being involved with several  projects at  the same
     time  because  you  do  not  like  to be  bored. You  are open-minded,
     independent, original, eccentric, creative, unusual, a bit of a genius
     and a free-thinker. New ideas and  concepts are  important to  you and
     you encourage everyone you come into  contact with  to experiment  and
     try new things. You are intuitive  and many insights come from your
     Higher Self. You like an unstructured environment free from rules  and
     regulations where you can respond to the needs of the moment. Routine,
     repetitive work makes you nuts. Your mind functions  in an  intuitive,
     nonlinear fashion and sudden insights and flashes of inspiration often
     come to you "out of the blue". You hate being told what to do  and how
     to do it. You need to discover your own truths and experience  things
     for  yourself  first-hand.  You are better suited to a fast-paced
     atmosphere  where  things happen  and change  all the  time. You  love
     science and new technology and you like keeping up with all the state-
     of-the-art inventions,  products and  ideas. You ave an  interest in

     ************************************************************************************
    
     Mercury Negative to Ascendant
     You love mental challenges and are  quick to  take up  the cue in any
     argument or debate. You have a  lot of  nervous energy  and can't  sit
     still  for  long. You prefer intellectual  people and you like  to
     challenge their thinking and ideas. At times you  may have  a lack  of
     clarity in expressing your thoughts. There are moments, too, when  you
     simply talk too much.
     
     Mercury Negative to Jupiter
     You are optimistic, but perhaps overly so. You make promises you don't
     or can't keep. You exaggerate the telling of any story for greater
     effect. You may have little or no faith in a higher power because you
     can't make sense of the whole issue. You love working with the big
     picture and want someone else to do the detailed work. You have a
     penchant for checking and re-checking things multiple times, just to
     be sure you did something in the first place, like checking to see if
     you really set the alarm or if you really locked the front door. You
     tend to do more rather than less. For example, if a recipe calls for a
     tablespoon, you may add a tablespoon and a  half. You figure if this
     much is fine, then a little more makes things better. You may be
     intolerant of other people's beliefs, habits or cultures. You tend to
     gloss over details that come back to haunt you later and you have the
     propensity to overestimate the potential of an idea or product. You
     are not intentionally mean-spirited, it's just that you get carried
     away with yourself and this can be detrimental at times. You have an
     abundance of ideas, interests, and plans for the future, but you may
     find it  difficult to focus on any particular area. You may devote
     yourself and your energies to some irrational cause. Philosophy,
     religion, or other areas of theoretical speculation interest you.
 
     You  also  possess foresight, numerous enterprising  ideas, and  a
     gambling instinct, all of  which contribute to your  success in  the
     world of business.  You love to travel, especially if there is some
     mind-expanding or educational aspect involved with it. There is a love
     of communicating your thoughts and ideas  to others and you may very
     well be an excellent teacher, formal or otherwise. You need to learn
     how  to discipline yourself so that you think problems through
     logically, clearly and with full knowledge of the facts. You have a
     tendency to  rush  through your thoughts or to be sloppy in your
     thinking, and perhaps even in your penmanship. Your thoughts go  too
     far, you can get carried away with them, making grandiose plans that
     are too expansive to be put into concrete reality. Yet, you do seem
     to be extremely uncritical of others and accept them just as you  find
     them. At times you are absent-minded,  even though  your mind  is very
     original  and  fertile.  You may have literary or speaking talent. 
     Guard against jumping to conclusions, bad judgment and  over-optimism.
     You have a knack for putting together unrelated ideas and concepts and
     making something out of them.  At times others will take advantage of
     you because of your sympathetic nature and generosity. You may  have
     the tendency, also, of talking too much, using more words to say
     something than what it really requires or repeating several times what
     you have already just said.
     
     Mercury Negative to Mars
     You have the capacity to be very clever and cunning,  trying to take
     advantage of anyone if you get the chance. Your mind is alert, quick
     and always ready for an argument. Your speech is sometimes too hasty
     and you lack tact. Your tongue is a sword you use to lash out at other
     people when they have upset you or done something you did not like.
     You have a temper that can explode into swearing, name-calling  and
     general ranting and raving. You are a convincing and forceful speaker
     and you have a way of bringing people over to your way of thinking,
     but you are not especially receptive to the ideas and opinions of
     others. You need to better learn how to rationally and logically
     control your desires. Your mental energy should be directed into
     creative channels instead of wasted in conflicts with others. You are
     irritable and fault-finding at times and this turns friends and family
     against you. You are argumentative and rather critical and aggressive
     in discussions and you like turning any conversation into a debate or
     verbal war. Try to choose an occupation where this talent is a  plus
     and not a minus.  Perhaps you could be a spokesman  for a righteous
     cause, a lawyer vigorously defending a client, an analyst or critic.
     You love to read and you may have literary talent.
 
     You are high-strung and have a lot of nervous energy, thus you find it
     hard to sit still for very long. You love working on several projects
     at the same time because it keeps you from getting bored, but you may
     have difficulty finishing the things you have started. You need to
     take time out occasionally and give your mind a break so that it does
     not become overstrained. Inner tension and hostility find their outlet
     in angry outbursts, sometimes making little sense to listeners. Your
     anger destroys your ability to think clearly and so you are unable  to
     logically present the reasons for your anger. Since your nerves are
     also stretched taut, you must be careful or you may suffer from  some
     type of nervous disorder, such as shingles or an ulcer. Anger is very
     detrimental to the heart, also. You have a tendency to overwork, which
     is very hard on both your physical body and your nerves. Your approach
     to life can be too much  hustle and bustle, with a lot of running
     around and nothing being accomplished. Slow down once in a while and
     chill out.
     
     Mercury Negative to Neptune
     You tend to be very imaginative and very visionary, but it is hard for
     you to put your thoughts and ideas into practical, everyday terms. You
     may occasionally be accused  of cloudy  thinking and  of letting  your
     imagination run wild. Having visions and wonderful ideas is great, but
     if you can't implement them in the real world, then much of  their use
     and effectiveness is lost. You need  to learn how to discipline your
     mind so that something real can come of your brilliant inspirations.
 
     When problems become too much for you, you re-create the situation in
     your mind with the ending you prefer, until  you become  convinced the
     new ending is reality. You may have a  tendency to  run away  from the
     world and its problems. Finding supposed shelter in drugs or  alcohol
     only compounds any problems you have in the first place. Although it
     may be  uncomfortable or even painful, you must  learn to face your
     problems head-on as they will not go away if you ignore them.
 
     At times you are very absent-minded and forgetful and there  have been
     a number of others who have thought of you as an air-head. You are not
     stupid, it's just that your focus and concentration is on another
     plane. Of course, we do have to live down here on earth, so it would
     be wise for you to be off in  the clouds only when  the situation  is
     appropriate. Communication with others may be  difficult at times
     because you are not always clear on what it is that you  want to  say.
     Either  that, or you describe things in such terms that no one
     understands  what  you're  saying. Use  your  ability  for  artistic
     expression to  communicate your  thoughts. Much of your inability to
     communicate with others is  because you  are not  concentrating. There
     are times, too, when you perhaps purposely try  to mystify or deceive
     others. You have great difficulty in  paying  attention and
     concentrating  on  anything  for  very  long, except of course, your
     daydreams.
 
     You may have the tendency to believe in everything you  hear or  to be
     just the opposite and  believe nothing  unless you  see hard  and fast
     proof. You do not see the world around you accurately,  hence you  are
     prone  to  faulty conclusions. Your mind is highly imaginative and
     creative and you possess dramatic, artistic, or musical abilities. You
     perceive things that others do not grasp and  understand and you have
     an amazing ability to read people  and situations  without being  told
     anything about them. You have a love of mystery and  are attracted  to
     metaphysics or occult science, but you need to stay away from negative
     psychic practices such as Ouija  boards, seances, hypnotism and
     mediums. There is a need for you to learn to discriminate truth from
     fiction and reality from fantasy. You are accused of being a liar at
     times and it is hard to tell whether you know the difference  between
     truth and falsehood or that you are simply trying to be deceitful on
     purpose. Some clear thinking on your part could prevent others from
     getting the feeling that you are intentionally misleading  them. You
     must learn to discipline and focus your mind  if you wish to  use all
     your creative talents. You are not particularly good at formal  book-
     learning because you tend to absorb knowledge in an indirect way. It
     is easier for you to pick up things by having  someone tell,  describe
     or show something to you instead of your trying to read about  it and
     understand what you've read. You may have literary talent as  you are
     excellent in describing anything imaginatively. You are a great story-
     teller.  Be careful of the people and environments with which you
     associate as you are very sensitive to vibrations and tend to soak up
     the atmosphere that surrounds you.
     
     Mercury Negative to Pluto
     You are naturally suspicious and curious about all kinds of hidden and
     secret things. You love playing the detective, ferreting  out any  and
     all secret information. You are not content to scratch the  surface of
     knowledge, you have to go as deep as possible in order to seek out the
     truth. You  love a  good mystery  and subjects  like death  and dying,
     reincarnation, sex and mystical or natural methods of  healing are  of
     interest to you. You like to know what everyone is doing or  thinking,
     but you rarely divulge what is on your mind. Because  of your  love of
     research and investigation you may well be attracted to the  fields of
     psychotherapy, psychoanalysis,  psychiatry or  counseling in  general.
     You have great powers of concentration and a penetrating mind. You are
     able to size up people and situations quickly and accurately. You are
     keenly observant and very little gets by you. You have sort of an x-
     ray vision  regarding the motivations and intentions of others. The
     occult side of life fascinates you and gives you plenty of scope for
     your researching talents and interests. Stories of mystery, intrigue,
     espionage, science fiction, etc. are favorite reading for you. You may
     have a morbid side to you because of all this interest in  underground
     or undercover subjects. But that is not the way you see it at all. You
     just want to learn everything you can about subjects that  most people
     couldn't care less about. You have strong opinions  with the  power to
     influence others. Some may think you are almost fanatical or obsessive
     about your beliefs or what you  choose to  direct your thinking upon.
     Just remember to keep an open mind to all points  of view. With that
     attitude you will learn even more about the things you study. Lastly,
     you may have a highly geared nervous system which can cause impatience
     and irritability. You must learn when you need to give your mind a
     rest.
 
     You tend to have a very suspicious, even paranoid, side.  You need to
     learn not to be so intensely involved with your own ideas and beliefs,
     as some of your beliefs may be downright fanatical. When others do not
     believe the same way as you, you may have a tendency to  get angry  or
     self-righteous. You need to learn to listen calmly to other viewpoints
     and consider whether yours is in error. Be big enough to admit when
     you are wrong. The attitude you may have that you are always right is
     just not reality. Keep an open mind before  ridiculing any  idea. This
     aspect can give the "doubting Thomas" tendency whereby you believe  in
     nothing unless the evidence is displayed to you first-hand. The  only
     real way you can find the proof you want is  for you to learn to tap
     your own Higher Self in order to find the truth from your own inner
     wisdom.
     
     Mercury Negative to Saturn
     Your mind is scientific, serious, deep and capable of great
     concentration. You are a relatively slow thinker, but you are very
     thorough. You enjoy studying or thinking in solitude and you rarely
     offer an opinion on any matter until you have thoroughly considered
     it. You are subject to periodic bouts of depression and melancholy and
     are cautious and reserved by nature. Conservatism is your natural mode
     of operation. You are something of a skeptic and may be narrow-minded
     and closed to new ideas, especially if you have no concrete proof  or
     scientific evidence as to their validity and correctness. You have  an
     aptitude for research or doing mental work which requires precise,
     organized thinking, attention to  detail, and a methodical approach.
     Socially, you tend to be reserved, serious, uncommunicative and
     uncomfortable with light, frivolous  conversation. Anything that
     doesn't accomplish something practical and productive is considered
     more or less a waste of time and energy. People who listen to you talk
     know  that you speak with the confidence of  authority. You have
     wonderful organizing ability and executive capacity. You are practical
     and deliberate and you have difficulty  expressing your  affection for
     others. You have a tendency toward tooth decay.
 
     Mental cruelty is possible. You tend to have  fears and worries that
     are unreasonable. Instead of planning you focus on worry. You are
     distrustful or fearful of anything you cannot understand with your
     rational mind. You should develop more awareness so that you do not
     interpret what others say to you in a negative manner. You may have
     difficulties in verbally communicating what you mean to say to others,
     so that misunderstandings occur on both  sides. You are such a
     conservative in your thinking that you prefer to stay with  ideas that
     work for you rather than adopting new ones. It would at times, though,
     be  to  your advantage  and listen  to new  concepts and  to try  them
     occasionally. Be careful that you do not get into the habit of
     rationalizing everything such that any means to an end is acceptable
     as long as you believe it. You have a tendency to go to extremes with
     details. Some of the details are not important. There is a tendency
     to strain on the nervous system through stress or overwork.
     
     Mercury Negative to Uranus
     You are a lightning quick thinker who is constantly coming up with new
     ways of doing things. You have an intuitive  genius for originality.
     You are unconventional, weird, a bit eccentric and you demand complete
     freedom of expression. New  ideas, discoveries and inventions  thrill
     you to no end. You love keeping up with the  latest state-of-the-art
     theories and products. Because you grasp ideas so quickly, you may
     have difficulty being patient with those around you who do not pick up
     on  things  as  quickly as you do. You understand scientific and
     mechanical theory easily. You are indeed blessed with a sharp,
     brilliant, swift and clever mentality. You may be attracted to
     electronics, astrology or astronomy and metaphysics n general. You
     have a decidedly high-strung and nervous temperament and you find it
     difficult to relax. You get bored rather easily so you need lots of
     things going on at the same time. You enjoy travel as there  is always
     something  new to learn or think about. Your mind functions in an
     intuitive, non-linear fashion, and sudden insights and ideas often
     come to you "out of the blue". You do well in open, unpredictable
     atmospheres where flexibility and quick responses are required. You
     are self-reliant and demand freedom of thought and  expression at all
     times.
 
     But, you have the tendency that if ideas do not fit in with your
     previously conceived  pattern, then they are simply rejected. Your
     interest in knowing about everything can dissipate your mental focus
     and concentration. You tend to scatter your energies into too many
     directions at once and to make impulsive or hasty decisions. You jump
     from one thing to another without finishing what you've started. Your
     mind is rather antagonistic towards the ideas of  others so that you
     have a tendency to disbelieve them out of hand. But, if your own mind
     comes to the same conclusion, then you find it totally believable. You
     usually like new ideas, but you don't want  them "preached" to you.
     Thus, it's  important for you to realize that others are not
     necessarily "preaching" to you when they present different viewpoints.
     Discipline yourself to stay with a subject long  enough to  master it.
     You may be carrying a chip  around on your shoulder that is most
     unattractive. Let it go and become detached.
