Mercury Aspects Mars - Conjunct, Sextile, Trine and Square


Here the fire and passion of Mars are blended with the intellect. In undeveloped natures, this means that the reason is constantly in danger of being swept aside by storms of passion, desire, anger, prejudice, or self-will. In higher natures, the mind overcomes such impulses and utilises them as energies to subserve its own ends. It often shows as a restless activity of mind that is never satisfied and never at peace. There is liveliness, resource, wit, irony, sarcasm, ingenuity, and promptness. There may be much strength of will in some cases, but it is usually more due to vigour and energy than to patience and steadfastness. The mind is separative and scattering, but the energies are such that great results can be achieved in a short time. Pride, harsh criticism and fault-finding are sometimes shown, and there is a tendency to exaggeration and even untruthfulness in some cases.
