In astrology, the Sun-Mercury aspect synastry is significant because Mercury is the planet that governs communication. This aspect, therefore, represents how we use our logic and intellect to express ourselves and make decisions.
In this article, we will explore the different Sun-Mercury aspects and what they mean for our lives.
Sun Opposite Mercury Synastry
A significant aspect of astrology is the conjunction, where two planets are 90 degrees apart. At least in the western world, the conjunction is regarded as being the most fortunate aspect and is one of the reasons why so many marriages, if the free aspect is favorable, work out.
Astrologically speaking, trines are the next favorable aspect, although a trine alone in an astrology chart can be misleading if other factors aren’t favorable as well. The next levels occur with squares, sextiles, oppositions, and semi-squares, with the semi-square being the weakest aspect.
Certainly, Venus doesn’t trine Jupiter; therefore, unless Mercury is Jupiter-ruled and Sun is Venus-ruled, it’s not a particularly favorable aspect. Mercury opposite Venus means that one or both of the two people are unlikely to be able to communicate well.
Sun Quincunx Mercury Synastry
There is a class of factors capable of many diverse effects, depending on their signification and on the nature of the relationship natal. Such is the nature of Mercury. Mercurial friendship or partnership is quite different from Mercurial attachment or dependency. Friendly unions are definitely possible and are often positive. But it takes more than friendly rapport to make your relationship work.
Both partners have to work at it. Assuming your Sun is in Gemini, and that your Mercury is last-degree Sagittarius, your network of friends will be excellent. But it will serve as your network of friends only if both of you maintain a more relaxed attitude toward life. Stepping into the friendship game can set you on a track toward the partner.
Sun Square Mercury Synastry
When the Sun is in synastry square to Mercury, this aspect acts as an intensive target to improve your relationships with others. You will be looking for new strategies for dealing with family, siblings, or friends to improve communication issues.
The main problems are in disputes with colleagues or authorities; although you will defend your actions, your performance will suffer because of this relationship. The lack of communication and understanding may also be decisive in your loss.
Sun Conjunct Mercury Synastry
The Sun and Mercury are the closest two planets in the Solar System, so synastry aspects between them can be extremely intense. Generally, there is a strong connection with another person, and can be quite intimate or intense.
If you have a trine aspect or sextile between the sun and mercury planets in your synastry chart, you will have mutual admiration between them. This will strengthen with time and people who share this aspect are likely to find you very attractive because they are both sociable. These relationships are amicable, easy, and totally even.
The benefits for the lovers can be seen on both sides with neither feeling they are not being given enough attention or affection. It’s an ideal love match. People with this in their synastry chart make great friends and love spending time together. They can be strong communicators with almost no awkwardness or shyness. Itchen trines place you in a situation where you feel just as at home with your partner as on your own.
Sun Sextile Mercury Synastry
Sun-Mercury aspects in synastry enjoy a very comfortable relationship, and can often find agreeable solutions to shared problems. In general, these partnerships are supportive and progressive, allowing everyone to reach their full potential.
The Mercury person in a Sun-Mercury aspect often has leverage over the Sun person and acts as a sounding board for the Sun’s plans, goals, and preferences. This synergy helps the Mercury person express the Sun person’s ideas more clearly, and helps people get along better.
They enjoy pragmatic and practical discussions, where real problems are dealt with realistically, and everyone can make a practical contribution. Although Sun and Mercury have different personalities, both get the job done with their friendly, grounded approach to life.
Sun Inconjunct Mercury Synastry
According to Crow Astrology, one of the hardest aspects to reconcile in Synastry is the inconjunction between the Sun and Mercury. This is because it can mean both strong attraction and strong repulsion between two individuals. Fortunately, there is an aspect called Sun/Mercury Semi-Square that can add to troublemaking Sun/Mercury aspects in better understanding sexual/romantic compatibility.
Sun-Mercury aspects can often mean lots of talking (and talking and talking). No couple can talk continuously for hours without starting to feel like someone is making them talk. Sun-Mercury aspects can indicate a kinder partner who can listen for a long time without getting bored. It may also suggest two people who are lost in their thoughts and who share a longing for connection.
If this is one of the many Sun-Mercury aspects in your Synastry chart, you may be drawn to a person whose company you can listen to for hours on end. On the other hand, Sun-Mercury aspects can also imply social anxiety or discomfort with talking for long periods of time, especially if your partner is quick-witted and sarcastic. People who dislike talking may find a partner who can’t think of something to say and just keeps talking to be a real turn-off.
Sun Trine Mercury Synastry
A Sun Trine Mercury or Sun Trine Venus aspect in synastry indicates a flirtatious union, in which one person tends to be more talkative and the other is more considerate. The two will either have a great time or a bad time together, depending on how they interact with each other.
If Venus is in direct aspect to Mercury, then relations will be characterized by an active exchange of information instead of dispute; whereas if Mercury is in aspect with Venus, relationships will be more flirtatious, spontaneous, and amenable to a “misunderstanding” of some sort. In other cases, when the Sun or Venus is in Trine aspect to Mercury, the union may be one of the shortest lifetime unions amongst the other types of synastry aspect combinations.
There are three types of Sun/Mercury aspects in synastry: Trine, Sextile, and Square aspects. All three Sun/Mercury Synastry aspects describe different types of relationships between the Sun or Venus and Mercury, and its possible combinations with other planets in synastry.
The Trine aspect is the most harmonious and the best. Trine is the most harmonious of the aspects, between a Sun Trine Mercury and a Sun Trine Venus. Trine aspects tend to signify harmony, camaraderie, harmony, and a keen interest in communication. They can also indicate that you and your partner are at ease around your partners parents, close relatives, or other mutual friends.
