Composite Mercury in the Houses
Composite Mercury in the 1st House
With Composite Mercury in the 1st house, your ability to express yourselves and communicate openly with one another can be strong. You can feel better able to communicate with one another than with other people, and conversation can be a strong tie that helps you get along. In a romantic relationship, you have to make sure you’re making an attempt to keep passion strong, otherwise the relationship can lose sparks quickly. This can be a great position for virtually any other type of relationship though.
Composite Mercury in the 2nd House
With Composite Mercury in the 2nd house, this can be a good placement for a business relationship, and you can focus on the plans and ways you can create wealth and accumulate values together. In a personal relationship, you can take your time getting your points across, and you may be more stubborn about your viewpoints with one another, so you need to make sure you’re being open about your differences with your beliefs and opinions. You may not be quick to get into fights, but can get stuck on them when you do, so try not to hold on to grudges with one another.
Composite Mercury in the 3rd House
With Composite Mercury in the 3rd house, this is a house naturally ruled by Mercury, so communication can be very easy between the two of you, and you can more comfortable express yourselves and feel you’re being understood. This can be a beneficial placement for any type of relationship. You can feel you’re understood by one another better than with other people, and it can be easier and more natural for you to talk things over and open up.
Composite Mercury in the 4th House
With Composite Mercury in the 4th house, you can express your feelings with one another more freely and openly, and find that you can understand what you’re both trying to express even when you’re not saying the right words. Talking openly about your feelings can be an important way that you connect. You may have a hard time separating logic from emotion with one another though, and need to watch for being subjective about the relationship and each other, lacking the objectivity you need to see when things aren’t going great.
Composite Mercury in the 5th House
With Composite Mercury in the 5th house, you can enjoy expressing yourselves with one another, and your communication can be pleasant, joyful, and fun. You can focus on lighter subjects and topics with one another, not wanting to be too serious, and you can make each other laugh. The danger is that you don’t take the relationship or each other seriously enough when you need to. This can be a good placement for a relationship focused on being creative, or between a parent-child.
Composite Mercury in the 6th House
With Composite Mercury in the 6th house, this is the house of work and is one of the houses naturally ruled by Mercury, so this can be a good placement for a work relationship, though it may be best for an employee-employer relationship rather than an equal partnership. In a personal relationship, you may have the tendency to nitpick with one another, and need to make sure you’re not getting lost in the little daily details and losing sight of the entire relationship.
Composite Mercury in the 7th House
With Composite Mercury in the 7th house, this is the house of relationships, so this can be a good placement for communicating openly in any relationship. You can give and take equally, and you each try to listen as much as you talk. You can feel you understand one another well, and you can get along quite well. The only problem may be that you each try to avoid confrontation with one another, and so you can refrain from saying things that are bothering you but need to be addressed, so don’t hold it in.
Composite Mercury in the 8th House
With Composite Mercury in the 8th house, you can open up about serious subjects and issues with one another, and talk about the things you hold deep inside of yourselves. You can dig into one another to gain more understanding of each other than you may have with anyone else. Communications between you can be intense, rarely light, and you do have to watch for having some epic fights. When you don’t see eye-to-eye, you each may try to dominate and control the conversation, but you need to be more open.
Composite Mercury in the 9th House
With Composite Mercury in the 9th house, you can have light-hearted communication about subjects that interest you and expand your minds with one another. This can be excellent for a relationship based on study and learning. You can enjoy expressing yourselves with one another, and can focus on the positives of the relationship, but you may have a hard time focusing on more serious stuff, so you have to make sure you’re not trying to avoid that on purpose.
Composite Mercury in the 10th House
With Composite Mercury in the 10th house, you can communicate with one another about practical matters and try to say what needs to be said, but not too much more than that. You can avoid getting into fights if they don’t seem to serve any kind of purpose, and you can keep emotions out of it, but need to work on being more open, if it’s a personal relationship. This can be excellent for a business relationship since this is the house of career, and together you can map out a course of action for your common goals that can lead to success.
Composite Mercury in the 11th House
With Composite Mercury in the 11th house, you can be open to what you each think, and allow one another to express yourselves without feeling like you have to be a certain way. You can talk about your hopes and dreams together, and may be a little idealistic about the relationship, but you can get along and understand each other so well that you feel the relationship can endure. This can be an excellent position for a friendship since the 11th house rules your friendships.
Composite Mercury in the 12th House
With Composite Mercury in the 12th house, you can open up with one another about the things you may normally not talk about, which can create a strong bond between you. On the other hand, you can keep more secrets from each other and not feel like you can be open with each other. You may even volley between the two. You may also find that one of you divulges a tremendous amount, and the other helps to deal and understand, but doesn’t open up as much. There can be a great deal of subconscious understanding between you.
