Mercury in 4th House synastry can become a source of deep mutual misunderstanding between you and your partners, especially if their Mercury falls into 1st, 3rd, or 11th house. It will be very difficult for them to understand your reaction to their words (which they perceive as the “voice of reason”).
In general, your partner is inclined to feel that he or she must tell you something important, fundamental, and concerning your central life attitudes. But it will not be easy because you will not be inclined to entertain such topics for a long time, except for abstract reasoning that somewhat concerns you personally. It is likely that the partner will not be able to understand how deeply some of their reasoning disturbs your subconscious, and to what extent they can be detrimental to your self-esteem when they make you question you life position.
On the contrary, if you Mercury in 4th House synastry partner’s speeches are supportive, you will start treating them with remarkable warmth and forgiveness, which your partner may not notice, so your warmth and trust will remain incomprehensible.
Mercury in Fourth House Synastry Examples
If the two of you meet in your house, you may seek to express your life views. Perhaps you will show an oil portrait of your great-grandfather, or take your Mercury in 4th House synastry partner to the cemetery where your grandfather and grandmother are buried, to show a place has already been reserved for your parents. If the partner takes it well, they can win your loyalty (especially if you tend to believe their word in general).
And yet, all in all, you perceive the partner’s speeches as purring of a domestic cat. This can offend your partner, or they will consider you stupid, which will be unfair since you will listen to the words that are important to you with great attention. If they truly hit the nail on the head, you may even end up changing your seemingly immutable attitudes.
