Placements for high intelligence
Hi ! I always wondered what are the placements in a genius birth chart ? What are the aspects and placements that indicate high intelligence and high iQ ?

The 9th house is house of education and philosophy and Mercury is the planet of communication and intellect, so i think having Mercury in the 9th house is a good placement for intelligence but i´m not so sure

What are some other placements that indicate high iQ ?

Dmitry Mendeleev, he became professor when he was 32 years old. 6th house i notice in some doctors and scientists charts with some planets. Mendeleev is great scientist and thanx to him we he formulated periodic periodic table of elements. He has great stelium in aquarius. Mercury is in aquarius one of my fat and Venus in aquarius and in 6th house means he enjoys being busy with science researches gave him so much pleasure. And the most interesting part he has sun , moon and Uranus conjunction. Real genious , amazing mind. Magnificent. Big big respect to such a wonderful scientist.

My child has Uranus in Aquarius in the 3 and Mercury in Gemini in the 7th house. Virgo in Chiron on the Midheaven. He usually goes off the test scores even at 5 years old and was playing chess against adults around there as well and could beat them on the computer. Although that deals with the Jupiter in Sag and Ascendant as well.

well in my case my mercury is placed on the ic. and i dont know if it indicates high intelligence. but intelligence comes in many different ways and i know it indicates a great memory of childhood and memory in generel. and that´s true in my case. but i also have mercury sextile moon 0.19 degrees. all in all i think my mercury is the most highlighted planet in my chart also i have sun jupiter and mars and technically mercury in 3rd house and moon and venus in virgo. and saturn in sixth house. but day to day i meet a lot of people that are more intelligent than me. but i will say that in terms of the mind and thinking i´m pretty high on the list not that i am smart. :P but mercury tends to do that. it doesn´t promise that you will be clever but have a natural flare in that realm what you do with it is up to you self. :1:

Mercury in 1st house in Virgo, Sagittarius or Gemini.

Mercury conjunction Pluto.

Mercury conjunction asc.

Mars in Virgo.

I can also say MC/Mars conjunction in Virgo because those people know how to use their intelligence effectively as far as I see.

When I read charts, I immediately go to Mercury and Saturn.

Intelligence markers.

No, it does not tell me their level, per se.

It shows me their capabilities.

😂😂 "something of an idiot" very well said. Also of course emotional intelligence is important too. But.. the oblivious do what the oblivious do.

Yes I could see that as being true. I also have my Venus in the 9th, in gemini. I´m not quite sure precisely how to interpret it though. Also as it´s the ruler of my ascendant!

I totally agree, especially on the different kinds of intelligence part. But i still think there are some placements that can make a person have a better intellet than the others, just like there are some placements that can make someone better at handling emotions. But of course it´s not because someone doesn´t have these placements that he is dumb :4: Some people are good at human interactions, some have high intelligence, some are good at reading emotions etc :)

No himitsu carefully read what i wrote. If many planets in aquarius Uranus can destroy all of them in aquarius. But trine to these planets from Gemini good for Uranus :1:

I just don´t think that´s something that can ultimately be seen in a chart...

You can tell if a planet such as Mercury is functioning "well", or unencumbered, in a chart, but you can´t really tell the *level* it´s functioning at...

A preponderance of air signs could mean alot of mental activity... But what is the quality of the mental activity?

There are also different kinds of intelligence too...

A person could be an intellectual powerhouse, but be completely divorced from their intuition...

I would consider such a person, despite their IQ, to be something of an idiot..

A bunch of intellectual fireworks, but no knowing...

>"I see the 9th house as being more about philosophy"

I agree with that - don´t have Mercury there, but my Sun and Jupiter in 9th work that way too :3:

Asc aquarius and sun , moon and mercury is all in aquarius and in first house. Jupiter sextile from Sagittarius and Saturn trine from libra. Uranus trine from Gemini. Double effect. I don´t out Uranus in aquarius because it will destroy all planets in there :4: mars is in aries in 3th house also support all of these combinations :4:

A bunch of us here have Mercury in the 9th and are all VERY smart so I support your opinion :61:

Most of us here are too old to have :199: & :159: in mutual reception which means a vibrant Noetic Realm chakra! Politics might get in the way of expressing your I.Q.!

I see the 9th house as being more about philosophy and wisdom. I can see you have mercury in Virgo though, that´s really good for being analytical.

Mercury on the ascendant, is a good placement for higher levels of intelligence, especially if the asc is ruled by Mercury.

It would make them very quick-thinking in their intelligence.
