Mercury square Uranus
With Mercury square Uranus, you possess a quick mind, you are very intuitive, and you require a great deal of mental stimulation to keep from feeling bored. Preferring to be self-directed, you don’t always take advice easily. There is a part of you that loves to shock, challenge, and instigate with the things you say; however, this may not be a conscious process. Your mental energy and output is extremely variable–one day you might be capable of enormous effort and interest in a project, and the next day the opposite. This is largely due to the fact that you feel a strong need to be true to your instincts and intuition, and if you are not absolutely inspired, you don’t feel right working on a project–you might feel that you are “faking” it, and this doesn’t sit well for you. The problem is that in life there are always going to be routine tasks to complete, things we have to do that don’t entirely suit our interests, and so forth. School years may be challenging as a result of your disdain for a linear approach to learning, routine tasks, and subjects that don’t inspire you, not because of any lack of mental ability. In fact, you can have real flashes of genius and your ideas and perspectives are often very original. At times you can be very dogmatic.
Mercury square Uranus gives you a tendency to be, or to appear to be, scatterbrained. Your attention span can be short, and as a result, you might often leave projects unfinished. At times you can have an irritable temper and need to channel some of your nervous energy into constructive pursuits. Take time to reflect on what you truly believe in, because many times you are too busy challenging established thought, or playing devil’s advocate, to get in touch with your own opinions and feelings. This way, your intelligence, integrity, and ingenuity can come shining through. Mercury square Uranus aspect is a seat of inner tensions. The tension of the square gives us motivation. Squares are dynamic aspects that give us the drive to succeed. What begins as an inner problem is overcome or accepted, and then becomes a door to understanding. It is important to understand that Mercury rules the reasoning and conscious mind that forms conclusions. Mercury is intellectual, enjoys learning, teaches and is communicative. Uranus is the planet of a sudden change in circumstance, much like a lightning strike. Uranus also represents innovation, invention and independence. It literally strikes out and strikes out on its own, like lightning. Uranus is unconventional and electrifying; thereby bringing about sudden change in an instant, which can show up as being erratic.
Those who have this aspect in their chart are probably asked quite frequently, "Where in the world did you come up with that idea?!?!" That question might be asked because the person came up with an invention that was really 'out there' or the question might be asked because the individual made a snap judgment without any evidence to support their thinking. You can pretty much expect the mind to change suddenly when this aspect shows up. This aspect can and will make a decision based on insufficient evidence or any amount of experience or knowledge. It just makes you want to scratch your head when you see it or hear it. And if you are one who has this aspect in your chart, others may think you're a obstinate and egotistical. Mercury square Uranus gives eccentric thought-patterns, intellectual superiority, the 'know it all' syndrome, and a changeability of mind and emotions which can both confuse and antagonize others. The main difference with the square's influence is the dominance of the Uranian 'rebel' attitude, which will condition your social expression. Your initial reaction to most social traditions, rules, and beliefs will be a belligerent opposition, even if you hide most of this activity within your own thoughts. A 'rebel of the mind!'. There are at least two sorts of rebel those who just oppose, and those who oppose and offer radical solutions to social problems. You are likely to have the tendency to be the 'opposer', as your ideas are often erratic and impractical, lacking in the ability to be easily applied by people in everyday life. This can be frustrating for you; but until you come to better terms with contemporary life, it may be inevitable. Part of this problem is your inability to acquiesce in social rules and accepted ways of behaviour, allied to an innate resistance to authority.
Mercury square Uranus fail to see why you have to live in certain ways, acting and behaving according to a social code of conduct, or thinking within predictable and conventional parameters. You have enough of a sense of freedom to know that life does not have to be the way your parents, teachers, employers, politicians and priests tell you. So, you become an outsider. Alienation from society can vary in degree; but you may have to be careful that your tendency is not just negative in nature but possesses a positive creative ability for social change. You may have to realize that the only person who is responsible for you is yourself! The responsibility for your choices and actions lies with you, no-one else; and it is a foolish denial of personal power to pretend otherwise, or to seek to blame society or someone else for the repercussions of your choices. Basically, what you are looking for is a personal state of freedom. The freedom to live in a world that suits you; and there can lie the problem. How to move from a restrictive world into liberation? One approach is to transfer the energy flow from opposing 'out there' to being turned within, to experience fully the contradictions in your nature, accept them and attempt to resolve or rebalance them. Techniques from the humanistic schools of psychotherapy and creative visualization could prove useful in this act of recreation. The social rebel has to undergo an inner revolution.
This combination can result in a very high-strung and volatile temperament. A well-rounded existence that includes physical and emotional activity is necessary to keep grounded. You may be adept with modern technology, but there should also be space for thought for thought's sake, and a conscious cultivation of the imaginative and artistic faculties. You may oscillate between relatively quiet to almost manic levels of mental activity, and cultivating routine and good habits may help to even this out. You definitely have an ability to see into or understand things that most other people do not, but it can come at the cost of a chaotic existence until you learn to control and focus it. This focus should not become an obsession with a single interest, however. Channelling your mental energy into practical and pragmatic areas and activities may result in some unusual solutions to the problems of everyday living and indeed you may easily become something of an inventor or eccentric renaissance type.
