Mercury Trine Ascendant

Mercury Trine Ascendant Natal

If you have this combination in your natal chart, it brings an easy flow to your personality, possibly making you very popular and well-connected. You are at ease with yourself, which allows you to be comfortable taking risks, which often pays off, leading to expanding horizons. The danger here is that you could take your success for granted and dissipate too much energy in partying, gambling, or just constantly having a good time. The real gift of this placement is that you can learn to genuinely enjoy yourself no matter what you are doing, so that even when hard at work you are fun to be around. By working and playing hard, but keeping excesses within reasonable limits, you can find a true source of happiness within yourself that shines no matter what far-off horizon you may be drawn toward next.

Mercury Trine Ascendant Transit

This aspect suggests an opportunity to either make use of your natural talents or to receive the gifts that follow from letting them flow out into the community. You may have acquired a small surplus with which to take a risk or have some fun, or you may be invited to expand your creative efforts into new social or cultural milieus. This is generally a quick transit that comes around twice a year, but as soon as every six to seven years or more often at longer 13-year intervals, Mercury makes a series of three trines with the middle one occurring during its retrograde. This is a more significant transit that suggests either the need for significant rest and relaxation after a period of especially hard or lucrative work, or else the need to look within for new creative ideas and risks that get the juices flowing.
