Mercury Conjunct Pluto

Mercury Conjunct Pluto Natal

This combination brings a deep penetrating awareness of the deeper hidden dimensions of the psyche, with a natural curiosity for and ability to understand things that often aren’t formally discussed—like sex, death, power, and the occult. If you have Mercury conjunct Pluto in your natal chart, you may be granted great power through wealth, or an ability to sway the masses. Conversely, you may be subject to, or even victimized by, the lingering effects of vast generation-spanning socio-cultural forces such as racism, mental illness, war, or poverty. A compulsion to break the cycle of these debilitating conditions drives you and can result in ruthlessness where the victim becomes the perpetrator. Like the tales of great monsters impossible to defeat by the will alone, you must learn to use your wits to expose the inevitable weaknesses.

Mercury Conjunct Pluto Transit

There are different kinds of conjunctions transit Mercury can make with natal Pluto. During normal direct motion (not near a station) transit, Mercury makes quick one-hit conjunctions to natal Pluto that happen yearly and represent an opportunity for insight into the urge for power, domination, and control in yourself and those around you. Sometimes, direct Mercury makes close conjunctions (within a few degrees) to natal Pluto, while also conjunct the transiting sun, only at much longer thirteen-year intervals. These rarer conjunctions represent opportunities for social or cultural activities that awaken you to your place within the currents of vast impersonal forces that move the masses. The retrograde conjunctions from transit Mercury to natal Pluto will occur in groups of three (with a direct conjunction before and after) only every six to seven years, or more often, thirteen years apart. These are opportunities for major insights into and adjustments toward how you have been both helped and hindered, or even victimized by, the urge for power, domination, and control over others.
