The North Node’s transition to Gemini puts a spotlight on Mercury (co-ruled by Gemini and Virgo) till Jan 2022. This got me thinking that we don’t often listen to how we sound when we speak or notice the words we prefer to use. For example Mercury in Aries might sound aggressive, speaking fast, and their words maybe more action orientated. While, Capricorn may sound unemotional even if that’s not the case and can use bossy, stern words, maybe with a low pitched voice.

What do you sound like – pitch, tone?

How do you communicate with yourself and others?

Do you prefer writing over speaking?

What words do you frequently use?

Is your vocabulary more likely loving (Libra), probing (Scorpio), nurturing (Cancer), detailed (Virgo), quick/short (Gemini) etc.?

Interesting topic smile

I have a Virgo Mercury inside the 12 house: I’m a cautious speaker, I observe much, speak when necessary – if necessary. It is conjuncting my ASC, so I speak (in the end!) although I take my time – sometimes thinking too much about how to say it.

Packed 3 house with Uranus, Jupiter, Neptune in Sagittarius, but the cusp in Scorpio. So, I pay a lot of attention to my words. I speak less than I think and I need a long time to get comfortable to express myself playfully and spontaneously – as I feel inside my mind where my thoughts are jumping around. I appear very serious in my speech with people I know from work or know less. With friends I’m fun and playful, you could say almost another person.

I do a writing job, but I’d like more speaking. Strangely, my sun in the 12 house keeps me blocked, I don’t like spotlights, so I stick to writing instead of speaking because I don’t have to face an audience and I feel better behind the scene (although I feel the need to be seen and heard).

I’ve always admired people who are spontaneous speakerssmile

My mercury is in scorpio in the 12th. I hate to text and I don’t enjoy talking on the phone.

I prefer a one on one conversation in person . Facial expression and tone of voice is so important for me . Usually I am less of a talker and more of a listener.

I hate simple chit chat. I am trying to be a little more open to that as I realize for some its just a way to relax. {My gem daughter in particular}

Fast and coarse, I think.
My daughter said I was more soft-spoken then she recalled so maybe I’ve changed some,

Not course. 

Fast during a reading to get it all in. As just a person talking, a friend, not fast at all. Clear, to the point. But, mostly gentle and fair. In writing… here, if someone gives you shit you will shut that shit down. But, fair. You gottttssss the Libra. When a person is in despair, there is a hug in your voice. A kind of …. hold on it will get better kind of tone. 

I am certain you can hold your own in a verbal spar though. 

I know. I have talked to you many many times… in both realms…. 

Also, you laugh heartily and have a lightning quick sense of humor. Maybe people don’t know this. So, I thought I would explain what have experienced.

Fun topic 😎.

I have a full bodied, more on the deep side, sounding voice. Certainly not masculine, but never high pitched.

I do tend to talk fast and with those close to me I use acronyms to speed things up.

Like most, I adapt my style to who I’m talking to eg. my fave style is when I talk to babies and my pets (colourful, melodious etc).

Because my mercury is in aquarius and the 11th, I do have kooky habits in this department. With close friends I tend to invent a lot of code words/terms so we can continue to express ourselves freely when out in public. When I talk to my partner I rarely use a person’s real name, I use their code name. It is hilarious when I’ve went to address people in their unknown code name as opposed to their real name 😄uranus

Leo Mercury in the 3rd house. I communicate lavishly and generously. I possibly come off as pompous or a know-it-all sometimes without meaning to. I think I express myself better in writing than in speech, although I can be a good speaker as well. There’s just more time for thinking and crafting in the written word.

My Taurus rising comes through in my voice…it’s not super deep but it is a little deep and has a steady quality to it. But it also has energy and a declarative flair that comes through with the Leo. Someone once said that I “pronounce words really well.”

Yes, interesting topic indeed!

I actually find it hard to describe the way I communicate & speak. The few times I’ve heard myself (like on answering machine) I was freaked out. I speak sort of slow, with a lowish voice, it sounds sort of muffled. I have a moderate Parisian accent in French and neutral in English.

Don’t think I have a particular communication style, but I like to joke or take things lightly. I think I get this from my American education.

I like both writing and speaking, but writing is private. My job doesn’t entail much writing, but good communication is part of it.

I don’t have frequently used words (that I’m aware of).

My vocabulary is all-sorts (or nothing specific), I like to mix words from different sources. I like slang (including old and outdated words – it makes me laugh, for myself).

My Mercury is in Virgo in 11th H, sextile Uranus and (I just recently realized, crazy as it seems) conjunction my Sun.

Forgot to add : I love words! All types – technical, scientific, exotic, foreign etc. Places, things, ideas. (Ubangi bottle whistle! Mombasa magic!)

I wish I could speak ten languages. In fact, I wish I could understand animals.

😄You have a terrific mercury placement, Satsun. I think it was you who shared that fun beverage name; the Quarantini. Yes, it would be awesome to speak multiple languages and understand the creatures.

Hey Osiris,

I’ve gotta confess that I am curious to know anything you may be comfortable to share about your mercury, and the way you communicate offline.

I’m guessing you prefer the medium of writing 🙂.

I’m curious about the sound of your voice. I can’t imagine you being high pitched, but it would be funny if I was surprised.

lol.

Apparently, I sound like the Queen of England. I hear this all the time from people, yet when I listen to her speak I am positive that I do not sound like that.

I prefer speaking, because I can see, hear and intuit subtleties of a conversation much easier and faster, than through writing.

My Mercury is eclectic, curious about people, how the brain works and what’s hidden beneath the surface. I dislike superficial or dull conversations; would rather resort to silence than suffer through an insufferable bore.

😄@ Queen of England…wow

Yes, I agree that it’s so much easier to interpret people via their voice/tone. In person, the eyes and body language of someone speaks volumes.

I can see evidence of your dynamic mercury by the Brilliance you demonstrate on this forum.

Thank you for sharing heart
