all unaspected planets are here. unaspected mercury, communications sometimes erratic. Talking ten to the dozen and not realising when to stop. then going to the other extreme.
“UNASPECTED MERCURY Like the Moon, Mercury is another planet that benefits from a variety of aspect connections with other planets (although, considering its abstract nature, it is less dependent in this context). Representing the principle of clear, unbiased objectivity, Mercury can be a neutral influence. It does, however, function more effectively when it is able to combine itself with other planets, since it develops best thru the stimulation of a diversity of influences. Mercury is energized to further express its innate potential due to its curiosity about what is unfamiliar (it is driven to want to know how all of life works). Other planets can provide Mercury with the essential learning experiences it eagerly seeks out. But unaspected Mercury, lacking in this educational opportunity, could represent one whose mental development is seldom well-rounded. Although the mind often is quite powerful and capable, it can become one-tracked in its application. And while the individual may be able to intelligently gather information in areas that attract his interest (indicated by Mercury’s natal placement), he may not comprehend as much about himself.
Mercury offers us the ability to apply the light of reason to all facets of our human nature, at least in a manner that prompts us to question our impulses. One with unaspected Mercury might be less driven to direct his mental power towards the observation and analysis of the other components of his personality. Thus, these other parts of his psyche are unlikely to develop and express themselves thru the benefit of logical, objective evaluation (unless they fall in Mercury-ruled signs and/or houses). However, the individual can exhibit an extraordinary mental facility in a singular area of life, suggested by its placement.
What is perhaps beneficial about unaspected Mercury, unlike a heavily aspected one, is that it is less inclined to become scattered (since it is not being simulataneously activated in a multitude of areas). Yet, by being less diversified, this type of mind could become less flexible and adaptable to change (and especially so if posited in fixed sign). The individual is less inclined to weigh all sides of an issue, since he is less familiar with all sides. Not necessarily stubborn or rigid, unaspected Mercury is simply not as prone towards recognizing options and alternatives of thought, as would be a well-aspected Mercury. According to Dean’s study, the urge to communicate is unlikely to be diminished. Yet it does appear to operate in spurtlike activity(although often in a brilliant manner), in which the individual can appear hyperactive (mentally and verbally). For the most part, I’d imagine the individual feels isolated and disintegrated on the mental level."
Typical effects are: hard time keeping up an conversation, cutting off others off, but also highly perceptive and with great wits. I know a successful writer, who has an unaspected Mercury also in Aries in the 1st house. He began the quest to become a writer at a very early age. His mother saved a ‘book of jokes’ that he had compiled at around kindergarten age. He is also very talkative, but very funny and very animated and entertaining, although he does sometimes joke around about sensitive topics and not know when to drop it.
