Pluto quincunx Mercury

Threatening differences

Kelli Fox

You really want to understand what makes each other tick, but that is really difficult to do. You just aren't able to see each other clearly; you grasp at understanding each other's emotional drives and mental makeup, but you fall short of figuring each other out. This aspect creates a subtle incompatibility between what drives each of you, and how you perceive each other.

You try to talk things out normally, but you both become irritated and then angry when you feel misheard or misunderstood, or when you perceive a threat to your own way of living life. Any mental differences between you come across as threats, which isn't a pleasant influence. You tend toward sarcasm with your partner; you don't try to rein in your dismay at their ideas or feelings. You could even start trying to manipulate them mentally, to force them to be more the type of person that you can understand. Somehow, you just offend each other without even meaning or wanting to. How to avoid the negative potential of this aspect? For one thing, you have to find a better way to communicate with each other. It's not fair to mistreat your partner with sarcasm or derision, just because they say or feel something that you don't understand. You have to try to control that tendency within yourself, and you both have to learn to treat each other with respect -- even when you're faced with how very different you are, and how little you really understand each other.
