If mercury is how we process information and the moon is the mind
Do both influence our learning process?

I was wondering if there is a different method of study and learning for each sign that mercury and the moon are in.

For example, I hate making notes, I prefer to read straight from the book and be playing with the information in my mind, I associate it with my moon in Gemini.

But I see that some friends who have the moon in earth signs find it useful and they say they learn a lot that way, personally this does not help me learn anything, I feel like it´s a waste of time to take notes.

Also a friend who has the moon in Sagittarius likes to walk and go around his house while he reads, he says it is quite useful.

Could you associate and match your mercury / moon sign with the way you learn?

What is your most useful study method?

Does the moon influence this, or is it just mercury?

I would say im more competitive physically,not mentally..
But i usually talk,react fast and enthusiastic :)
I dont have particular urge to give answer first,i need to think and analyze long enough to be confident about what im going to say.

I´m not good with my academics. Until I like a subject and or a teacher/professor/instructor. Or if it´s a life and death situation. Very best during crunch time or working under pressure. I passed my thesis oral defense after months of lack of sleep and then after graduation, I slept straight for almost a week due to fever and stress. I swore to myself not to experience that ever again. I´m best at researching rather than being lectured, spending an hour just trying to stay awake. Studying nonstop for days invades my dreams too, rushing myself on waking up when I realized it was only a dream, and in reality, I´m already late! Focusing too much has its downsides too. If I need/want to create an idea or do a memory recall, the bathroom is the best place or by facing a corner wall. Luckily my seat during board exams on June 8&12 2012 was placed there. Seat No. 1. Also, I went to use a toilet break to de-stress, instead of recalling words, I played songs in my head. War of My Life and Edge of Desire by John Mayer. The Album Battle Studies made my review or studies easier to digest it also wakes me up inspired. My method of studying depends on the type of exam. If it´s word for word or memorizing a formula and its steps. I had to write it down practice with my hands. If it´s multiple choice since all 4 choices seem like the right answer then will have to pick the best answer by familiarizing and canceling until it downs to two. Yea it´s a gamble 😂. And throwing questions to your friends and hear their answers is much more fun and memorable, be sure to verify their answers. If it´s my favorite subject and or a teacher/professor/instructor I studied normally and diligently. The best time is from 3 am until the warmth of Sunrise. And from December last year until May I studied astrology until I smell iron inside my nose 😂 its alarming for me so I mellow it down. This time my motivation is to catch up with everyone´s language. Astrology for me is like learning a new language. 12:52 AM here, Good night.

I have a colleague who likes to study, thinking that she is going to compete, she likes to ask before the exam and do a kind of "competition", she has Mercury in Aries.
Do you identify with this in any way?

In addition, when they ask questions, she is the first to answer, I think about it more because of a doubt to be wrong, although I have already studied the subject, but she simply speaks HAHA

Yes, I think that having mutable signs makes us have a less stable type of thinking, but I imagine that if you learn to use Pisces and your imagination to your advantage, you can do great things.

Yes, I think that we have that more mutable signs, since we tend to disperse haha, but I imagine that if you learn to use Pisces and use their imagination to their advantage, you can do great things.
So I think, I had a classmate in high school who had Mercury in Pisces, according to what they say, ACCORDING to, who is down, and won the first place in the average of the entire school, I suppose she knew how to take advantage of her imagination and use it to her advantage.

Well, it really is lazy to study haha.
She studies 2 or 3 hours before the exam, and only then does she do well, under pressure, although she remembers more faces and conversations.

Is it better to have mercury conjunct or trine with jupiter?
Let´s say Mercury and Jupiter are in Aries.

Would that somehow increase the speed of thinking, more than what is already in Aries?

Do you think Neptune´s opposition to all your planets is the cause?

My mercury is in :175: and my moon is in :182:. By every single one of my teachers growing up I was told I needed to pay attention more and I could not follow instructions. I often wonder why I struggled at school (especially math)... was it because school just wasn´t my strong suit and I had focus issues or is it because I had such low self esteem and had actually convinced myself I was stupid and turning it into my reality? I´ve often wondered if I´m an undiagnosed ADD because I show all the signs and symptoms... but could it be I just tricked myself into thinking I was always lagging behind others? I honestly have no way of knowing if or how my birth chart influences this because I´m just a newbie.
For me, note taking is very important and if I´m feeling extra motivated, I´ll turn my notes into flash cards and quiz myself. Just the act of writing things down will do more for you than if you type up online notes.

I am best at learning through educational games, in a group or taking notes by yourself :37:

I guess they both influence our learning process in different layers.

Mercury is the intellect, intelligence and communicative abilities.

Moon is mind, emotions and mother. So its more related to emotional memory.

Dont forget Jupiter is Knowledge, high learning, spiritual learning as well.

Besides you need to check the lord of your 3rd house, 6th house and 9th house as well and also check what aspects has all those planets involved.

Ahhh also if you are interested in how does your mercury works you can check in what stage is your mercury. If is promethean or ephimethean. Check this link:…

In my case I have stationary retrograde mercury in rohini nakshatra (i use vedic astrology) and is conjunct jupiter. I love to learn by reading, very disperse way (sometimes with 20 or more tabs) but also hiperfocalized (i dont hear or see or realize the external world when im focused). My moon is in cancer in ashlesha nakshatra. My memory is awful... I barely remember my childhood or familiar events. At least is something im interested then i remember every piece of useless info ive gathered lol.

For absolutely everything? Including facts and studying for tests etc. Or just remembering thing´s that others don´t bother to remember some of which may have some relevance to heavy relavance later?
I´m very good at remembering faces, it doesn´t matter if it was a brief encounter and the second ten years later. Also I can grasp what was the most important elements within a larger situation and recall that.

Mercury in Pisces - Moon in Scorpio.

Since I´m easily distracted by my surroundings specifically random noises, it´s important for me to have my own space if I want to fully grasp the information that I must know. Writing notes helps my memory too and I´m also a visual person. I much prefer the methods of reading what I´m trying to learn than listening to someone else explain it to me. My mind tends to drift away whenever somebody tried lols that´s also the reason why studying in a group setting doesn´t work for me.

For extreme focus: Headphones on. I´m in the zone.

I have moon in virgo and mercury in aries.I prefer study things old style by books.I mean certain major books related to specific field.I see nowadays people dont care much about details and want to grasp information fastly as possible and become quickly ´master´
All those 10 minute informational videos on youtube are attractive and visual sure but they dont tell much about what is going on backround and deep below surface..details are everything..
I have more theory based approach and like to play with ideas inside my head.
You dont need to have lab or instruments to run a thought experiment in your mind :)
So short answer is reading reading and reading again..

Old books with crumbling acidic paper are often well-thought-out!
Someone here has an interesting YOUTUBE tutorial on quarters of the brain that relate to the four elements!
The Air element is the most human, the water element the most fascinating, the fire element closest to God.....................Earth element.................... should be put out to work at eight-years old!
Irony as Latin has been taught less, Latin terms appear more densely in Neurology texts than before!
Oken book I have mentions thalamus relating to :159:, I believe that the fact appears online as well!
Obviously if :152: & :153: relate to aspects of memory, a gifted neurologist could quickly associate them with specific brain organs!
:156: is always connected by mid-point & aspect to pure brilliance!
You would think with a :176: stellium with well-placed natal :153: that a school system that leans maniacally towards punctuality would have made it easy for me to progress grade by grade, but tardiness meant one class for eleventh graders had to be taken all-over again in the twelfth grade just to matriculate to Community College!
The scroll bar has just appeared at the right which suggests I have been here for a while so :29:

Hmm. I´m just thinking about different aspects of this now. Yes I suppose I am usually either very calm or restless so I want to be doing things/thinking about things (I think this is meant to typify the experience of Virgos?..)(my moon) but also with my sun in leo and asc I think that contributes to a relaxed attitude, but also if I do nothing "then" I become more restless (virgo moon) and moody -mercury in cancer.
Because both cancer and Virgo are introverted signs I need a lot of time by myself to learn things by myself through contemplation and reflection.

So I guess I´m saying that I´m slow but busy?...

But I prefer to remain calm at most times and keep this anxiety at bay and usually have a stable mood.

This is a very interesting analysis. Could you also make some comment on my mercury-moon? (sextile- cancer-virgo 10th and 12th house respectively)

Is there a book that relates the parts of the brain to astrology? :24:

Why do you say the slow learning thing?
Is there a book that talks more about this topic? :32:
I think my biggest problem while studying is my dispersion by Gemini, so I have to be motivated and interested by what I read, or I get distracted.

We had an :181: stellium here for a while who "awed" us with her academic achievements.....................I wondered about her tight-orbed :159: :194: :153:; She was reminded about Astrology having more math than other forms of divination and ditched with :85: emoji as her last message!
:179: is the gambler and gamblers have 30 extra I.Q. points by not overzealously making pre-frontal connections!
There might in fact be syndromes of thinking that are represented by planets in Astrology like ` :164:´ and the pine-cone gland at the brain´s posterior ventricle!
