Mercury Square Moon

Mercury Square Moon Natal

This combination suggests a tension between the way or speed with which you take in and absorb experience and the speed or way in which you process information. This can make it feel as if you are constantly waiting for one part of yourself to catch up with the other. If you take in information faster than you can process it, this overload may cause you to feel shut down and result in a need to retreat periodically until you can process everything. Reducing distractions and practicing mindfulness will help you keep focused only on what is important. If you process information faster than you can absorb it all, then you may find yourself making quick decisions that aren’t fully informed. You may need to ask more questions and use decision making structures to assure that you account for all the variables before arriving at final conclusions.

Mercury Square Moon Transit

This transit symbolizes an opportunity to consciously modulate the relatively unconscious choices you make about the information and experiences you expose yourself to daily. You may need to open or close the overall flow of information and also consider re-structuring the sequence and duration of individual kinds of input. This transit is generally quick in nature and occurs twice per year, but every six to seven years or more often as rarely as 13 years apart Mercury will make a series of three squares with the middle one occurring during the retrograde. This is a more significant transit that suggests an inner need to re-think your entire information “diet.” Are you getting the information and experiences you really need for a well-rounded life, or are you filling up on junk? If junk is not gumming up the works then you may need to simply “switch channels” to allow for fresh perspectives.
