Mercury and Pluto in favorable aspect

Astrological aspects: general introduction

The analysis of a natal chart must be as comprehensive as possible. This is what we do as we make our personalized reports available in our e-shop. It must be borne in mind that many astrologers concentrate on the interpretation of planets in signs and in houses, and of angles, without paying enough attention to aspects. On the contrary, we believe that when aspects involve personal planets between themselves or slow-moving planets, they are of fundamental importance. In all cases, they are at least as significant as the Ascendant or the Sun. This is particularly relevant when the orb is tight (i.e. when the aspect is exact). This is the criterion we apply for this new series of articles which describe how well-known personalities experience certain aspects.


Mercury and Pluto in harmonious aspect

In this article, we address the major favorable aspect between Mercury and Pluto, whether it involves a harmonious conjunction – that is, one receiving no negative aspects – a sextile, or a trine.

Mercury is the planet of the mind. It relates to our mental activities, our capacity for analysis and reasoning, and our talents for oral or written communication. It is important to remember that Mercury has dual rulership over Gemini (associated with words and eloquence) and Virgo (related to numbers and precision).

In connection with the first sign, the planet shines with its youthful spirit, curiosity, quick wit, and light-hearted humor. In the second, Mercury becomes more intellectual, focusing on details and adopting a strategic approach based on thorough analysis of situations.

In both cases, Mercury is characterized by its adaptability and skillfulness.

Pluto, located at the far end of the solar system, is an enigmatic and collective planet. It only influences the chart if it touches a personal planet or an angle.

Ruling Scorpio, it is passionate, deep, magnetic, with reformative and regenerative energy. In mythology, Hades is the god of the dead, and as such, Pluto is radical.

When these two planets are connected by a harmonious aspect, the individuals concerned exhibit exceptional introspective qualities and a great capacity for concentration.

They demonstrate determination and can mobilize for as long as necessary for a cause that matters to them. Their mental strength is their main quality.

This alliance allows an interest in the hidden aspects of everything, seeking truths that are sometimes difficult to reveal, and solving complex puzzles.

These individuals do not shy away from danger. They are capable of staying cool-headed, focused on their goals, and not paralyzed by scruples.

Lastly, this type of mind is fascinated by security issues, ranging from simple police matters to organized crime and the mafia. All shady businesses, such as drugs, prostitution, or money laundering networks, can prove to be excellent fields of expression for their detective mentality. They fear nothing, neither for themselves nor for others.

In order to better explain this aspect, we are mentioning several well-known personalities, here Stephen King (favorable conjunction), Nicole Richie (favorable conjunction), Jean-Paul Sartre (favorable conjunction), and George W. Bush (favorable conjunction).

This article deliberately isolates the aspects so as to better describe them. For this reason, it claims on no account to be a psychological analysis of the celebrity in question, for whom many other articles are available in the "Focus" section.

It is possible to find thousands of other horoscopes having Mercury and Pluto in favorable aspect (or any other aspects), with the online tool search. The planets, positions in sign and in house as well as the orb, are configurable.

Stephen King

By betting on a debut novel in the horror genre, Stephen King was undoubtedly following the path set by this astrological aspect. In his chart, Mercury is the leading planet, favorably positioned in the 4th house and in Libra, conjunct Neptune, sextile the Moon, Saturn, and especially Pluto.

From his childhood, he faced a dramatic event, witnessing one of his friends being run over by a train.

This tragic accident, along with comics and movies, quickly fueled his imagination and continuously inspired him. At a very young age, he showed enough confidence in the literary field to self-publish his first stories, typed on a typewriter and focused on dark tales.

Mercury's connection to Pluto in the 1st house, the house of personality, gives him confidence: success was almost immediate.

We all know the rest of his career: author of numerous novels exploring thriller, horror, and fantasy. Shining, Misery, Carrie, and It would even become movies that equally captivated audiences worldwide.

Pluto, the planet of depths, well connected to the Midheaven, confirms that this dark dimension was the indispensable ingredient of his career.

Nicole Richie

Born into a family of well-known musicians, Nicole Richie was entrusted to Lionel Richie at the age of three and took his name. In this Virgo native's chart, we find a close conjunction between Mercury and Pluto in Libra, a social sign that emphasizes relationships with others.

Despite the fame of her adoptive father Lionel Richie and the comfort she lives in, Nicole Richie was left to her own devices, which led her to various extreme experiments.

Comfortable in the nightlife, she was one of the first celebrities to venture into reality TV, pairing up with her friend Paris Hilton. To the public, she played her own role as a "poor little rich girl," deliberately using the clichés of her condition to benefit from the attention it brought her, giving her a certain power.

This talent, given by the Mercury-Pluto conjunction, allows her to navigate between challenges and murky waters. Nicole Richie later wrote a novel, described as a semi-autobiography, chronicling a character much like herself, facing similar challenges.

This exercise, serving as an outlet, led her to discuss her battle with drug addiction. For her, Pluto, ruling the 4th house of origins, imposes all its ambiguity in this area of life.

Fortunately, the Mercury-Pluto duo, in sextile with the Ascendant, ensures her an extraordinary ability to bounce back through clever management of her public image.

Jean-Paul Sartre

A prominent figure of existentialism, Jean-Paul Sartre remains one of the most famous French intellectuals.

Born into a wealthy family, Sartre benefited from a favorable environment to fully engage in higher education and quickly demonstrated an instinctive opposition to various forms of authority.

He was known for his penchant for provocation, which allowed him to gain early notoriety in student circles. In his chart, the close conjunction between Pluto and Mercury in Gemini, the latter being the ruler of the sign, perfectly aligns with the profile of an intellectual embracing the ideas of his time, willing to adapt and rebound.

Pluto adds a touch of depth as well as an attraction to disturbing subjects. Marked by World War II, Sartre gradually shifted from themes of personal freedom to collective causes.

He became involved with the Communist Party, before withdrawing upon witnessing the deviations and disasters of this political project when put into practice.

In his case, the conjunction between a highly powerful Mercury and Pluto enabled him to leave behind a significant body of work, including novels, essays, plays, and philosophical writings.

Radical to the end, he always refused honors and remained a great thinker throughout his life, despite health issues.

George W. Bush

A few years after his father had already led the United States, George W. Bush came to supreme power in 2000 in a rather strange manner, very symptomatic of this aspect. The vote count in Florida against his rival Al Gore kept the suspense alive for weeks.

His presidency is marked by the 9/11 attacks, which pushed him to hunt down Al-Qaeda terrorists threatening American interests all the way to Iraq. At the time, George W. Bush insisted on the presence of weapons of mass destruction in that country. Even today, the question of whether he deliberately exaggerated these facts or if his administration acted in good faith is still debated.

In his chart, the two planets rise in the 1st house, conjunct the Ascendant in Leo, playing the role of undisputed dominants. They receive a main aspect, a sextile to Neptune, which brings a touch of idealization to the mission he assigns himself. They describe a skillful politician, with significant conviction and a pronounced taste for power.

With such a configuration, George W. Bush epitomized what political scientists see as the peak of American arrogance on the international stage.

His career and his conservative moral convictions, motivated by religion, perfectly illustrate such an assumed aspect.

After an initial military career, he often showed toughness and inflexibility in pursuing his strategy, being, for example, in favor of the death penalty to deter criminals.

Despite the criticisms, he was brilliantly re-elected for a second term, without deviating from his ideas. It is not surprising that his life has inspired several documentary or book authors, notably Eric Laurent's 2003 book "The Secret World of Bush," on the occult networks of this head of state.
