Mercury opposite Moon

Mercury Opposite Moon Natal

This combination suggests that the way and speed with which you take in and absorbs experience is at odds with the way and speed with which you process information. Either you tend to take things in quickly and then process very slowly, or you take things in slowly and yet process rapidly. In either case, there are internal delays as you either wait to understand what has just happened or for more experience to come your way. If it’s the former, then the secret lies in developing the extended expectant pause. In order to keep from being pressured to move on before you are ready, you should learn to act outwardly as if you are looking or listening for something external. If it’s the latter, then you should learn to take the time to examine all possibilities before moving ahead.

Mercury Opposite Moon Transit

This transit suggests a challenge to the inner emotional identity or perhaps even personal safety. Things should be examined to see if they are “deal-breakers” or not, and potential enemies avoided until things blow over. This is generally a quick transit that comes around once per year, but as often as six to seven years or as seldom as 13 years apart Mercury will make a series of three oppositions with the middle one occurring during retrograde motion. This is a much more significant transit that suggests an inner need to evaluate your feelings of being nurtured, taken care of, and rested. You may need to take better care of yourself somehow or to decide how to deal with someone else who is either not doing their part or has somehow broken your trust.
