People who were born during the Sun conjunct Mercury transit are the best communicators in the zodiac. They want to interact with others as much as possible because this is what’s stimulating them to come up with new ideas.
However, having such a busy mind, they may not pay too much attention when their loved ones are speaking because they’re usually thinking of many other different things. When it comes to communicating, it can be said they’re better at talking than at listening.
The planet Mercury rules over communication, logic, ways in which people are thinking, education, neighbors, relatives, means of travel on short distance, exchange of information and even news.
It’s an astrological guardian that makes natives having it in conjunction with the Sun in their birth chart think fast, be alive, adapt to anything, less emotional and more curious about new knowledge.

These natives love to reflect and introspect, but they can overdo these things and become preachy, selfish, too stubborn and judgmental, especially in the event in which the conjunction between the Sun and Mercury in their birth chart is at under 5 degrees.
This influences them to be rigid to others’ opinions and to refuse ideas that aren’t the same as theirs.
Furthermore, it makes them less objective when they’re trying to analyze themselves because their mind and ego seem to be the same thing.
These natives can be selfish and not realize it because their thoughts are more about themselves and never about others. Because they’re the most talented when it comes to communication, they make amazing teachers.

However, it’s still rather beneficial and not in any way evil. It also makes them pretty single-minded, but they’re not at all the type to argue with those who are not agreeing with them.
They have this ability to integrate their personality with almost anything, but this doesn’t indicate that their life is going to be without problems. It only shows how satisfied they usually are with all of their goals and what they’ve managed to achieve.
If a situation doesn’t benefit them in one way or another, they’re not even trying to adapt to it. Being motivated to make all of their dreams come true, success is sure to follow them everywhere, but they’re never investing any time and energy in what isn’t meant to bring them any benefit.

They’re better working alone because this way, they can easily appreciate how much they’ve done and how good their results are.
While confident when it comes to the way they’re interacting with others, they’re only successful at socializing, not at developing interpersonal relationships because they’re too afraid of getting hurt.
They’re more sensitive than their loved ones believe them to be, so it’s normal for them to protect their feelings most of the time, not to mention how dependent they are on being spiritually fulfilled.
