The Moon And The Mind
For the head and heart to align,
You need a harmonious trine
Between Mercury and the Moon,
If these two bodies are in tune,
Your heart and mind will coincide
With all that you need to decide.
If the Moon is in its own sign,
The empathy you show is fine,
Mercury cannot be immune
To the influence of La Lune,
It will flow with the lunar tide,
For it has nowhere it can hide.
If Mercury is exalted,
The situation is altered,
This will mean that the intellect
Will on the heart have strong effect,
Together they will be content,
But with a more rational bent.
Happiness need not be halted
By what ties may have resulted,,
The bodies with which they connect
Cannot undo the trine aspect,
Its harmony some may well dent,
With others, some support is lent.
A Moon-Mercury trine tends to make one outspoken, but the manner depends on the sign's element. Fire is the most assertive and forthright, air is witty, but not necessarily kind, earth is blunt and matter-of-fact, water the most gently tactful. They all "tell it like it is" because their inner harmony gives them the confidence to do so.
