Mercury conjunction Ascendant
Mercury conjunction Ascendant makes you an ideal person who loves to share thoughts and ideas. You are a communicator who specializes in one to one conversation but you still like chatting within groups of people. You are intelligent, elegant, vivacious and curious. Your mind is always racing, gathering information and processing it. Your memory is excellent and you love to take things apart and put them back together again, in your mind and with your hands. This dexterity would be useful for a mechanic or watchmaker. Rationing and reasoning everything at such a fast pace makes you adaptable and variable, However, being always on the go mentally and physically does put a strain on your nervous system. You can be changeable, fidgety, anxious, jumpy, and easily distracted. Schooling and education are essential for you, but some mental discipline is sometimes needed to stay focused on one thing at a time, and not chatter and be otherwise disruptive. Mercury conjunction Ascendant would do well in any career that involves communication or personal interaction such as sales, office work, human resources, journalism and writing. Fully expressing yourself in relationships is very much appreciated by loved ones and friends. This is where you are most comfortable. Even though you can sometimes be somewhat unemotional, being alone with your highly functioning brain for extended periods would be really hard. You also like hanging around with people in your neighbourhood and with children, siblings, and cousins for some mental stimulation.
Since the ascendant represents our persona or interface with the outside world, and Mercury is about an exchange, Mercury is said to find its joy or highest expression in this position. If you have Mercury conjunction Ascendant, you inherently understand and navigate with a fluidity of consciousness that sees everything as it truly is—only a temporary manifestation of a single possibility. There are great flexibility and magic in this placement, which amounts to a kind of natural shapeshifting, but this can be a source of confusion, concern, or even consternation for those who are less pliable or need more permanency. The danger here is retreating into a world of imagination and fantasy where you are free to change at will. As you learn to control your consciousness and maintain more stable outer forms, others will learn to trust and accept your changes and you will be highly valued for your natural magic. Impulsive, bright, restless, may have nervous habits especially if connected to Uranus.
