When Mercury and Uranus hook up in a natal chart, innovative thought which seeks to release itself from the straight jacket of convention is highlighted.
I think Craig Mack said it best:
“here comes the brand new flava in ya ear….. time for new flava in ya ear…. im kickin new flava in ya ear.”
Every planetary placement or aspect in our chart can serve us as an opportunity.
With Mercury-Uranus contacts, we have the continuous chance to infuse our intellectual faculties with new and fresh ideas. To spark innovative thoughts.
Mercury represents our thought process and what we think about. Uranus symbolizes dynamic change, unconventionality and departure from the status quo.
If Mercury touches Uranus within your birth chart, the potential is there not only to shock and shake yourself out of conditioned responses, which ultimately revolutionizes your mind, you can also serve as a catalyst for others by encouraging the same type of examination and questioning concerning the usefulness of the existing thought structures.
Your perceptions have the potential to be lightning quick and accurate to boot. Trusting your intuitive faculties is an important ingredient in this cosmic recipe. We’re talking about flashes of mental insight while in the shower, on the train, driving to work- you name it.
Some astrologers say the highest manifestation of this aspect means genius. I say it can produce someone who not only colors “outside the lines” in life and stretches the boundaries of the mind, but also consistently maintains the courage to stand alone in the face of their ideas initially being branded as “unpopular”, or highly eccentric.
An individual who knows the price of admission to non-conformity and keeps a stash of currency to cover it.
If you have this connection in your chart, it’s extremely important to develop and nurture your capacity for independent thought.
Your natural inclination is to reject the “herd” mentality. So, go ahead and keep developing your new slang and verbiage and let others take their time in catching up.
On the flip side, it’s not a good look when your authenticity is reactionary. When you attempt to be different just for the sake of it. You then become a pseudo-enigma with your “originality” predicated on looking at what everyone else is doing, and simply doing the opposite.
