Theodor Geisel’s whimsical surrealist genius earned his work longevity and resonance achieved by few. AKA Dr. Seuss, he had Mercury conjunct Saturn. That may seem austere for someone so playful. But you can see it in his enormous output, professionalism and the endurance of his brand.
Mercury reflects the person’s intellect, sensibility, and eloquence. It is particularly important for writers and creatives.
This is from my Astral DNA birth chart report:
Mercury Conjunction Saturn
In old fashioned astrological textbooks, Mercury conjunct Saturn was said to lend people a dour temperament. Maybe their consciousness does veer more toward stoic philosophy than – say – the Law of Attraction but they’re brilliant at turning their words and thought style into legacy. Saturn is the Time-God and often, long after the Mercury-Saturn person has switched dimensions, their words and ideas live on. Some examples: Dr. Suess, Albert Einstein, Edgar “the Sleeping Prophet” Cayce, Rene Magritte, Colette, Philip K Dick, Emmeline Pankhurst. In contemporary terms, the investigative journalist Ronan Farrow is a fantastic example of the genre. Chuck Palahniuk, the author of Fight Club, is classic Mercury-Saturn: “The things you own end up owning you.”
My fave Dr. Seuss is The Pale Green Pants.
