Natal Mercury in the 6th House

When a native has his natal Mercury in the 6th house, the planet of intelligence is in domicile as the house is ruled by Virgo. Mercury functions in a very good way, even if there are adverse aspects to it; these would mostly challenge the nerves and the mental health of the individual. This natal placement will make the person continuously learning new things for his job, keeping his mind up-to-date and adapting to new techniques very quickly. People who have Mercury in the 6th house will always be aware of new methods and will have the wisdom to choose the best ones.

This planet in House 6 indicates that you mainly apply your intelligence in your daily or professional activity, in which you feel the need to express yourself intellectually. Depending on the sign in question and the aspects, we can say how the intellectual abilities are used in this area, but it is above all a tendency to favor the intellect over action (unless Mars is also in this house ). At the health level Mercury represents above all the nervous level, but also the pulmonary level, and therefore we will be able to see how the person reacts on this level knowing that in general it is these two areas that will be affected by health problems, as well as the domain of the sign of Mercury.

The good aspects of Pluto will accentuate the capacities of research, diagnosis, and will strengthen the nervous plan,… those of Neptune will increase the intuition and the inspiration… those of Uranus will improve the communication but also the skill and the practical sense, and at the health level the nervous system will be more reactive… those of Saturn will amplify the capacities of concentration and reflection, and will make more resistant on the nervous and pulmonary level… those of Jupiter will give the sense of organization, advice, teaching… those of Mars will make you more ingenious, skilful, practical, with a more lively nervous system… those of Venus will give an ability to communicate well by speech (if the conjunction is well aspected)… those of the Moon will make you more alert on the nervous level,and give a better ability to organize oneself in daily life… the well-aspected conjunction with the sun will favor the nervous plan and increase Mercury’s capacity for expression according to the sign concerned.

The negative aspects of Pluto will give a tendency to worry and anxiety and the fact of trying too hard to understand things on a daily basis and reacting too radically… those of Neptune will make you too sensitive nervously or on the pulmonary level and too dependent on the atmosphere at work… those of Uranus will disturb the nervous plan (instability) and will make you more impatient on a daily basis… those of Saturn will make you less adaptable in communication, and will give lung fragility (sensitivity to cold) more than on the nervous plane… those of Jupiter will be able to push to certain excesses and cause errors of judgment to be made… those of Mars will give impulsiveness, impatience, poor control of the nervous plane … those of Venus will make the nervous plane too dependent on theemotional (poorly aspected conjunction)… those of the Moon will give a lot of impatience and nervousness and therefore an unstable nervous plan and a difficulty of organization on a daily basis… the conjunction with the badly aspected Sun can give an imbalance on this nervous plan or according to the sign concerned.

As always, it is necessary to make the synthesis of the aspects to Mercury taking into account the sign of Mercury and that of the house 6 which is the backdrop of the way in which this domain is lived.

You have strong analytical skills and may also have a penchant for computers and electronics. Getting too bogged down in the details quickly wears out your nerves and can cause health problems. Symptoms of illness mostly reflect negative thinking and worries. Perhaps you are restless and tend to change jobs frequently. You are interested in service jobs, possibly of an intellectual nature, but also in the health or nutrition sector. A varied work is very important to you.
