Mercury Trines are a blessing from Hermes-Thoth himself.
They’re where you have the Power Of Glib, instant and easy understanding or even psychic powers.
For more of an explanation of trines, check back to Trine and Dine.
In general, there is heaps of astrological info in the D.I.Y. Astro Category, which you can access via the drop down categories menu on the left.
A trine is a 120 degree angle but the easiest way to figure what trines something is if it is in the same element. Fire-Earth-Air-Water. Then check to see if it is close in number. Mercury at 16 Taurus and Uranus at 14 Virgo? You have a Mercury-Uranus trine. Mercury at 2 Gemini and Venus at 6 Libra? Mercury trine Venus.
Or you can look at the table of aspects on the Astrodienst charts. Look for Mercury (similar to the Venus symbol and right next to her) and then it actually will show the trines to other planets or points as a triangle symbol.
Mercury is how you think, talk and express yourself. Mercury trines to other planets show where/how you find it easy. So simple you probably take it for granted. Some ideas;
Mercury trine Moon: ease and harmony in talking/thinking about emotions, easily intimate.
Mercury trine Mars: sticks up for the rights of the downtrodden, guts and fab pep talks
Mercury trine Venus: supernaturally-charming, always says the right thing, brill at flattery.
Mercury trine Uranus: genius scientific mind and quick eureka flashes, nervy but also clever with gadgets.
Mercury trine Neptune: psychic, dream interpretation or divination skills, can often see auras.
Mercury trine Pluto: awesome detective skills, highly focussed mind, sometimes brilliant, never lie to them.
Mercury trine Sun: amazing output of words, ideas, thoughts, charismatic as stink…
Mercury trine South Node: natural link to the past or even past lives, understanding of fate at play.
Mercury trine North Node: awesome ability to manifest the future.
