Moon sextile Mercury
With Moon sextile Mercury, the Mercury qualities are often more emphasized, as this aspect is associated with the mind, information, understanding, and communication. The lunar personality foundations are usually well established and not disruptive or unduly intrusive. You should be able to express your Moon's qualities in ways which also enhance Mercury qualities. Information and knowledge will be especially appealing; perhaps you will have an almost insatiable curiosity and need for wide and extensive intellectual exploration. For you, the world is like an immense storehouse of fascinations, your mind lighting up with interest as every new one comes into view. You could become a 'perpetual student', loving to explore each topic to the greatest possible depth, and perhaps becoming expert in limited areas of knowledge. Alternatively, this could result in a dilettantish tendency, sampling many varieties of knowledge but rarely exploring deeply. Both memory and comprehension are likely to be above average, thus creating a well-stocked intellect. What can emerge as a motivation is a need to be socially useful by contributing to your community. To achieve this, you hope to discover ways to transform thoughts and ideas into practical results. The sense of value and pleasure this gives serves to encourage increasing your knowledge. The issue of right direction may arise in this context and you may decide to become involved with civic and social groups, pooling your assets and abilities with those of others to achieve group objectives.
Born under Moon sextile Mercury, you look at ideas as sources for practical action and possibly personal profit, as you possess an effective business and organizational ability which could also be successfully exploited. You can be an effective communicator, conveying ideas and presenting them in a clear and persuasive manner, being articulate and literate, entertaining and interesting. This can manifest in writing and lecturing, and can be beneficial in social communication, especially in activities which increase contact with groups. This can extend your influence and increase friendships; your personality is sufficiently flexible and tolerant to relate to many types of people. Moon sextile Mercury may possess a sensitivity to others' thoughts and feelings, almost like a psychic intuition, but which operates through a Moon affinity of sensitivity and emotional rapport. This can act as an 'early warning system', indicating when people or situations are less genuine than they appear, so trust these inner sensations and feelings whenever they arise. This sensitivity helps you to be tactful and diplomatic, whether in social contexts or within the family. Others can recognize your thoughtful and caring nature and, provided that you do not become obsessive about manifesting your ideas, you should be able to co-operate and harmonize well with partners and family. Fortunately, your emotions rarely enter into direct conflict with your mind and ideas, but usually work with them in tandem, so that positive attitudes assist optimistic plans to become productive. This emotional and mental accord minimizes distracting inner conflicts and enables problem resolution to be achieved more smoothly.
Under Moon sextile Mercury, your Moon's emotional warmth and protective concern is an asset for family members and intimate relationships and domesticity will be well organized, founded on close and effective communication. Home is important, but wider social involvement will be equally so, as this is often the environment in which you intend to apply your ideas practically. Both emotions and mind are recognized as offering valid messages, but ensure that neither becomes imbalanced through overemphasis, as each performs an important role in different circumstances. Intimate partnerships, marriage, or love affairs will involve a high level of mutual communication and sharing; enriching both participants' lives and contributing to achieving personal aims. You will be attracted to similarly intelligent and optimistic partners who are able to exploit innate talents, especially those who conceive ambitions and then strive to achieve them. A danger is that, if two people are chasing individual goals and dreams, then conflict may occur if their paths begin to diverge rather than run parallel.
Moon sextile Mercury makes you an engaging and outgoing person. You are easy to talk to and get along with, even though you can sometimes be opinionated. You may prefer to be around people and may have many friends. You have good people and social skills because you intuitively understand people and quickly form emotional connections. Above all, though, you are an excellent communicator. You are intelligent but not seen as intellectual because of your distinctive touch and lively nature. Your curiosity and good memory make you a quick learner and able to hold conversations on almost any topic. You make a great friend because you can openly share your feelings. People can share their feelings with you because you listen to and understand them. This talent to engage at an intimate level extends beyond one-to-one interactions. You subconsciously act as a conduit in groups of people, giving everyone a feeling of belonging or team spirit. Moon sextile Mercury have a playful mind and a youthful spirit. You should make a good parent and enjoy the company of children. You may act as a representative or agent for other people or groups. You are the one who would speak for your family and give toasts at parties. You have a way with words and would have been a lovely letter-writer or pen pal in the past few days. Your handwriting should be neat, pleasing, or at least easy to read. Writing is your particular skill but would be wasted on technical subjects. You are a storyteller, a poet, a songwriter, and a novelist.
