What does it mean to have no planets or aspects in my mercury?
I have mercury in sagittarius and with no planets in it but I have my sun in scorpio conjunct mars and pluto and moon in taurus opposite mars and pluto and midheaven and mars in scorpio also.Does it mean that the way I think and communicate is absolutely careless and thoughtless as having a mercury in sagittarius implies especially with no aspects in it?
Answer by Consort of the Goddess
“Mercury in your horoscope shows the focus of your mentality as the instrument and reflection of the ego-force. Mercury is neutral and takes on the colorings of the planet(s) aspecting it. The most powerful aspects indicate the native’s predominant manner of thinking and his/her primary interests for mental energy.”
“When Sagittarius is in Mercury, the mind is on fire with ideas, especially visions for the future. Those born with this Mercury have a cheerful way of making light conversation, but also love being drawn into philosophical debates. These natives are curious and open-minded, alighting on each detail as a possible clue leading to their end goal — the illuminated truth.
Sagittarius is an inspired fire sign that seeks the broadest possible perspective, collecting all the pieces to form a whole, the big picture. Sadge is the map maker, and Mercury here means mental adventures to get a sense of every landscape. Many with this Mercury stay in the academy for as long as possible, thriving in the learning environment.”
Mercury is also in one of the 12 houses, to see where your mental energy if focused, what turns you on mentally look up the meaning of Mercury in whatever house it is in.

Is it me, or does mainstream astrology (horoscopes and the like) give astrology a bad name?
Also, free internet chart readings only give one a bunch of individual aspects (eg. sun sextile moon) and can’t analyze the chart as a whole because of this. It completely clouds your perspective and you end up missing the big picture if you can’t weigh the pros and cons “objectively”. N’ah mEAN?

Totally, it is not taken as seriously as it could be. It is seen as a joke when it is actually very in depth.

If you are talking about sun sign newspaper and magazine astrology then YES absolutely it does.
I’m still trying hard to get people around here to understand that you are far far more than ‘just’ sun signs. In fact I get sick of repeating myself, you would hope that some would learn something by now.
Internet chart readings has a great place in learning about astrology, and yes what astrology can be used for is important. That’s why I started this thread.
Misconceptions about what astrology can do
perhaps this thread will help you understand a little more
some of the silly questions around here are soooo boring, like why do saggi cheat, or why to virgos treat me so badly. When will I gret married. Which sign has the most beautiful people, which sign is the most intelligent, or stupid even….. its monotomous over 2/3rds of the questions are of this type.
hopefully though if we get enough people interested beyond sun signs, we’ll have em hooked.

Generic horoscopes and their like are fun to read and can be entertaining. But they do give a soft target to psuedo-skeptics who like to use them to justify their rantings about how astrology doesn’t work, and is too general. Those are also the type of “skeptics” who would never give astrology a fair shake but are more than willing to run astrology’s little brother, the newspaper horoscope, through a battery of inappropriate tests.
Free internet chart readings are good starting tools for people. Just as horoscopes in newspapers are like the building blocks from which you learned your ABCs, some people need these little bits of fluff to get a better grasp on the bigger picture. The free chart readings can be an intermediate step into real learning.
