Mercury opposition Pluto
With Mercury opposition Pluto you are so perceptive and you dig so deep for answers that you can be your own worst enemy. As a result, you might find ulterior motives or dark intent where there is none, and your suspicious, provocative attitude can cause some problems in your personal life, particularly if it reaches the level of paranoia. Not many people enjoy being second-guessed all the time, yet that is something that you are inclined to do, and a tendency that should be kept in check in your dealings with others. However, your determination to get to the bottom of any matter, to rip away falsehoods and expose true motives, can be used for good if you employ it in your work, for example, which can involve investigation and research, psychology, or revealing and perhaps dark creative arts. You can be insatiably curious about all that is hidden, taboo, repressed, or secret. You have a great love of debate, but should be careful that you don’t overpower others with your strong opinions, attempting to “convert” them to your frame of mind, or treat regular debate or exchanges of opinion as battlegrounds. Many of you do learn to harness your intense mental energy and apply it productively. You are capable of very hard work and effort. You are bright and insightful but the very strength and depth of your vision can mislead you. In consequence, you get in your own way a lot. The magnitude of a project can intimidate you so that you don’t even embark on it. You are a perfectionist and compulsive. You fear being judged by others as inadequate and this quality has you afraid to act. Of course, you do overcome this many times in your day to day life, but it goes smoother for you when you stop attributing negative motives to those around you. You are able to do this when you feel better about yourself. Periods of meditation and contemplation are necessary to get to know yourself.
Mercury opposition Pluto combination symbolizes a state of dynamic tension between the rhythm of your daily thoughts and movements and the urge to penetrate deeper into the mysterious depths, or to gain and exercise power over the masses. One of the first ways this shows itself is in obsessive tendencies where the intense probing nature of the mind will keep at something until it is figured out or you end up being exhausted. You may feel alienated because of your tendency to always look deeper than most people ever care to go and dwelling on the surface of casual chit-chat may feel like a waste of time. Once you realize that the depths are a place to visit and return from, rather than to dwell, you will be able to manage your ordinary life much better. Understanding the natural doors and openings and heeding the need for invitations to go deeper will limit the intrusive nature of your gifts.
Mercury opposition Pluto feels like an internal struggle with thoughts and concepts, how to rationalize, and then communicate them. The intensity of your nature comes from this deep psychological process; others will see you as a deep and complex person. You are unwilling to take ideas, news, or opinions at face value. Your inquiring mind must probe and deeply understand all the fine print and ramifications of any piece of data, from a spiritual concept to what your friend just said. This can lead to a wide and comprehensive knowledge. You may hone in on a particular field, becoming a master in your chosen field. You don’t like to be wrong; this, together with your mental intensity, can lead to relationship problems. The problem arises because people around you are unlikely to show the same degree of seriousness or interest in what you are thinking or talking about. Difficulty in connecting to people can arise because small talk does not challenge your mind enough to keep you interested. You may even feel that you are ostracized or persecuted simply because others cannot relate to your depth of thinking. They may become confused and uninterested, or state a different opinion just to upset you. You have strong opinions and are likely to get involved in arguments and conflict. In order to have some harmony in relationships at the intimate level, you need to gain self-awareness of your communication style and how you come across to others. Thankfully, you have the intelligence to make this realization. You also have a powerful ability to transform and improve your communication style to better integrate and maintain close relationships through this higher self-awareness.
People who are born during the Mercury opposition Pluto aspect are feeling like there’s an inside struggle between their way of thinking and some concepts, how these are being rationalized and after, they’re communicating them. This is because they have a way of psychologically processing thoughts, so others can see them as very complex and profound persons. Those who were born during the Mercury opposition Pluto aspect can deal with a lot of tension in their mind, but they can from time to time showcase mental balance. It’s difficult for them to see in the future and are often times failing to look at a problem before they’re committing, meaning they’re taking risks that aren’t necessary. These people can often find themselves in situations in which they have to manage secrets and deal with danger. Being so extreme, they can end up practising the job of detectives and spies, or do something that can bring them their death. When it comes to how they’re communicating from a psychological point of view, these people are usually blocked and require assistance in order to release their nervousness. They’re never happy to just take ideas and opinions as they’re coming towards them. Their mind is inquiring, so they should understand in a profound way, what the ramifications of the information they’re gathering are, as far as spiritual concepts mean and what their friends are saying. This can have them understanding wide conceptions and gaining a lot of knowledge.
Problems may arise when those around them are not being as serious as they’re supposed to be, no matter what they may be thinking or discussing. If connecting with others and facing difficulties, things can become complicated when small talks are starting and their mind is not being challenged. Some may even get to feel that they’re persecuted and forced by others to do what they don’t want, just because these others can’t relate to the profoundness of their thoughts. They can become puzzled and no longer caring when it comes to what they’re discussing or when being contradicted. Natives born during the Mercury opposition Pluto are strongly opinionated and can end up involved in many conflicts. This opposition is creating a lot of tension, from both a mental and emotional point of view, so it can be addressed in a constructive manner because the change inside the heart of natives becomes necessary, just before their energy is in control and integrated into their personality. Feeling anxious and agitated, they may perceive the world and their own feelings in colourful ways. These people have an incredible ability to let go when facing any desperate situation, to not be bothered by details, as well to clearly talk about what they’ve learned. Their objective and insightful way of speaking can scare some people, who may only want to agree with them and to avoid their negative influence. More than this, they may see what’s happening when someone is challenging them: many nasty words being said or a strong gaze being thrown at them. People born during the Mercury opposition Pluto aspect should be careful and never too zealous when it comes to important matters. While this may seem almost unachievable for them, they need to remember balance is the key and allow information to come their way because they’d no longer be inflexible and too stubborn. More than this, they should avoid being obsessive and return to the same ideas because this can have them brooding for too long, even if they have the mental discipline to overcome it. When it comes to relationships, these natives need to pay attention to the way they’re communicating because it’s very likely they have their own hidden motives, not to mention they can start blaming their partner for not being able to communicate and this problem is only theirs. It’s important for these people to be fair and honest. Besides, they can work in the scientific or the investigations field, but this can impede their relationships from developing. People born during the Mercury opposition Pluto transit like converting others’ ideas into their own. This is a beneficial aspect for expression, no matter the subject being addressed. Many are harsh when talking and receiving the exact same responses in return, but they can as well be tactful and diplomatic. If they want harmony from an intimate point of view, they need to be self-aware in the way they’re communicating and how they’re interacting with others because they’re intelligent enough for things to happen this way. More than this, they have the strong capacity to evolve and by being more aware of themselves, to improve their style of communication when it comes to their closest relationships.
This aspect depicts conflict which, when resolved, results in growth. Oppositions show a tug of war between opposing forces. If they are resolved, then the oppositions become the backbone and strength of the chart. It is important to understand that Mercury rules the reasoning and conscious mind that forms conclusions. Mercury is intellectual, it is the thinker, while Pluto rules transformation through destruction, only to end up in reconstruction. Pluto is powerful and behaves like plutonium, where it completely destroys only to rebuild anew. Pluto levels one thing to cause something else to rise up out of the ashes, just like the phoenix-rising arises from the ashes. Pluto destructs in order to reconstruct and there is where the transformation takes place. There is a tendency to become obsessed with your own ideas, which you might relentlessly impress on others. This can be a very tough aspect to handle simply because Mercury rules the mind, intellect and communication. Pluto rules secrets, darkness and volatility. When these two planets are coupled up it makes for an extremely probing mind, which can easily seem like an interrogation to others. Mercury rules the curious mind, which can make you overly curious when questioning others. This can create resentment and result in some really bad personal relationships.
