You possess a spacious and diligently working intelligence which often makes you feel superior to others, especially in the workplace. Your geekiness is the higher expertise, but will always lead towards helping and assisting, or what they call a “service”. You make also a perfect manager, since you can scan with your mind every thought of your coworkers and offer a lot of practical input and guidance.
Two celebrities with this placement:
Comedian Andy Kaufman
The late comedian Andy Kaufman provided a good example of mutable “plasticity of behavior.” He was a gifted copier who had the Sun, Jupiter, and Mars in the Mercurial 6th house. )Mercury can denote “…a talent for mimicking the archetypal nature of the other planets”).9 In fact, many critics say that Kaufman went beyond comic mimicry to actually inhabit his “ways,” including his shape-shifting transformations into a darkly misogynist wrestler and a vituperative lounge singer. (His Moon conjuncted Saturn in Virgo, and Pluto rising opposed his Mars-Mercury conjunction on the Descendant—yikes!) It is interesting to note that, even at the height of his fame, Andy Kaufman (subject of the R.E.M. song “Man on the Moon”) tried to bring himself back to Earth by working periodically as a dishwasher at a small restaurant.
Beat Writer Jack Kerouac
The beatnik writer Jack Kerouac was a nomadic cultural icon whose life became an extended metaphor for the search for personal transformation, frequently accomplished through drugs, alcohol, and frenetic motion; Kerouac had a strongly accented 6th house. His 6th-house Aquarius Mercury was ruled by Uranus, also placed in the 6th house. Kereouac’s famous 1955 autobiographical novel, On the Road—part of a broader generational challenge to the silent, conformist, and “organization-man 1950s—was really about Kerouac’s search for a “way.” The book tells the story of a freedom-obsessed group of friends who “rushed back and forth across the country on the slightest pretext, gathering kicks along the way…and if they seemed to trespass most boundaries, moral and legal, it was only in the hope of finding a belief on the other side.”10
Mercury in Sixth House by Curtis Manwaring
Mercury: If Mercury is in the 6th or is lord of the 6th, and dignified or received, especially by the lord of the 10th, then this is good for professions in accounting, writing, education, communications or news media, computer science and technical fields. You are highly efficient and adaptable and able to handle many different tasks at the same time. You will have many chances to advance yourself and job changes are usualy frequent unless an earth sign happens to govern this place. If debilitated or afflicted then it becomes an indicator of frequent job changes without stability, a hectic schedule and alot of disorganization, and there is a greater liklihood that co-workers will talk behind your back, or you may become the scapegoat for practical, knavish jokes. Communication at work may be more often misunderstood. It does not matter much what sect the chart is as Mercury functions equally well in both. Illnesses associated with Mercury: excessive worry leading to nervous ailments, Parkinsons disease, possibly alzheimers.
