When Mercury in your chart forms an aspect to another person’s Jupiter. When Mercury in your chart forms an aspect to your partner’s Jupiter, exchanges of ideas are enthusiastic and positive. You are rarely short of words to say, and conversations are inspired.
Square, Opposition, or Quincunx
When your Mercury forms a challenging aspect (square, opposition, or quincunx) to your partner’s Jupiter, the exciting exchange of ideas is present, but there could be problems with following through on too-grand plans or promising more than can be delivered. There may come a time when you realize that you can be “all talk”. You could frequently interrupt each other or compete for the floor. As well, the Jupiter person may become frustrated with what he/she perceives as the Mercury person’s overly-rational approach to the world. Jupiter may come across as haughty or holier than thou. The Mercury person might find Jupiter’s opinions too broad, flippant, and perhaps impractical to hold weight over time. There can be a lack of understanding or the ability to relate to one another’s perceptions and ideas.
When the aspect between Mercury and Jupiter is a flowing one (sextile or trine), your Jupiter partner is especially enthusiastic about your thoughts and ideas, stimulating you to learn more, and to expand your opinions. Conversations can be lively, positive, and inspiring. Communication is open and flowing. There can be a strong bond of friendship based upon enjoyment of sharing ideas and opinions. Your Jupiter person introduces you to new ways of thinking, while you are able to express Jupiter’s lofty ideas in more concrete terms. Your Jupiter partner believes in you and often gives you the benefit of the doubt, which is encouraging and rewarding indeed. You love to learn and share opinions together, and can enjoy a lot of laughter and enjoyable chatting.
The conjunction of Mercury and Jupiter between charts can possess shades of both the challenging and flowing aspects mentioned above. This is a relationship in which learning and sharing information, and perhaps traveling and business, forms a strong basis for your bond.
