Everyone has been in situations that require him or her to convince someone of something, and everyone has been the object of someone's attempt to be convinced of something. The technology of persuasion is different from the technology of manipulation, because persuasion essentially aims to satisfy the interests of all those who are involved in the situation.

Today’s article is about the methods of persuasion that one is skilful at and uses in the best possible way. Accordingly, he or she succumbs most easily to exactly the same methods. Therefore, do not reproach someone if you are faced with "pigheaded stubbornness" - you are just using the methods to which that person does not react.

The process of persuasion is a kind of collision and gaining mastery over someone, but in a quiet and peaceful, and even enjoyable manner. It also involves the use of "weapons", strategies, "fighting" with someone, the ultimate goal being to convince him or her of something, make him or her trust you and support you. The sixth house in the personal horoscope symbolizes and describes everything that one should overcome, literally and figuratively, in order for that person to be able to maintain a good physical and material existence. The power to win, prevail over opponents and deal with any "enemies" and to be convincing falls under the rule of the sixth house in the horoscope.

I have mentioned in the previous articles that, according to one of the major astrological postulates, when the sixth house in the horoscope is strong, when its ruler is well positioned and supported by other planets, then that person knows how to win and advance in life. The charisma that paves the way in life and enables a person to go through any obstacles, "enchant" and subordinate others, overcome conflicts, competition, rivalry, persuade people in discussions and debates is due to a strong sixth house in the horoscope.

Since the planet Mercury closely relates to the intellectual power of people, the sixth house considered from Mercury shows the method of persuasion that one masters best as well as the methods to which one succumbs, i.e. how someone could convince you most easily and quickly.

I will write the information that is derived from the zodiac sign in which the sixth house falls, considered from Mercury. If you do not know the sign in which Mercury falls in your personal horoscope, read the information on the sign where the Sun falls by birth, because Mercury deviates no more than 28° from it and often falls in the same sign. However, Mercury may be positioned in one of the neighbouring signs. For example, if you were born with the Sun in Taurus, then Mercury may be found in Aries, Taurus or Gemini.

Mercury in Aries
The sixth house falls in Virgo and is ruled by Mercury. The methods you use to persuade are associated with a skilful game of numbers, facts, arguments, details. You power lies in your ability to go into detail, be precise and break everything to the last particle. Mercury is a "skilful, witty and clever" planet that knows how to "joke, be funny, and play with words." Therefore, sometimes you can resort to expedients and intrigues, use clever jokes and a solid dose of humour to be convincing. Very often, the critic dressed in humour is a tool that you use in a very appropriate manner. You yourself can be easily persuaded if someone else uses the same strategy.

Mercury in Taurus
The sixth house falls in Libra and is ruled by Venus. The methods you use to persuade are related to a polite and kind presentation of your viewpoint. Your strength is to bet on beauty and pleasure, to emphasize only the best part. Often, you may use that "I-seek-advice" trick by which, step-by-step, you drive the other to give you exactly the advice that you have had in mind from the outset. And naturally, the one that is giving advice cannot but support you, i.e. you have convinced him or her of your opinion. Venus is a "seductive, artistic, beautiful" planet and therefore you are very convincing when using this style. However, you yourself very easily succumb to the same tactics of persuasion.

Mercury in Gemini
The sixth house falls in Scorpio and is ruled by Mars (Pluto). The methods you use to persuade are related to the manifestation of power, expression of superiority and inspiration with fear/threat. Naturally, you do not do it directly but others feel it in your words, intonation and behaviour. Your strength is your ability to skilfully master and control the fear of others. Mars is the planet that knows how to "cut, burn and fight" and Pluto makes it profound and able to do so in a hidden, unnoticed manner. Therefore, some extremes of the "either-or" type and methods of coercion are present in your style of persuasion. You yourself also succumb to this strategy of persuasion.

Mercury in Cancer
The sixth house falls in Sagittarius and is ruled by Jupiter. The methods you use to persuade are associated with the active use of philosophical reasoning, postulates of religion and faith that you follow, moral principles to provoke others to reason and higher consciousness. Your strength lies in being open, honest, full of optimism and faith, having an objective approach and demonstrating wisdom, regardless of your interests. Jupiter is a "generous, wise, philosophical and optimistic" planet. Therefore, your style to convince often contains arguments in the form of lessons, precious advice and selflessness. You yourself also succumb to this strategy of persuasion.

Mercury in Leo
The sixth house falls in Capricorn and is ruled by Saturn. The methods you use to persuade are associated with hints for using hierarchical power, social status, prestige. Your strength is to rely primarily on the respect that others have for you, awake it in them, provoke them to comply with order and discipline. Saturn is a "serious, conservative, restrictive" planet but it is also "safe, stable, authoritative." Therefore, your style to convince contains all kinds of rules, generally accepted norms, references to written and unwritten laws; you put limitations, demonstrate disciplined behaviour, bet primarily on the benefits and practical side of things. You yourself also succumb to this strategy of persuasion.

Mercury in Virgo
The sixth house falls in Aquarius and is ruled by Saturn (Uranus). The methods you use to persuade are associated with the use of a very friendly element, you try to make friends with others, so they give you their support mostly "because we are friends." Your strength is in counting on surprising moves, slightly shocking the others, catching them off guard, reminding them that you are still friends. Saturn in conjunction with Uranus loses its conservativeness and it is more opposed to restrictions, rules and regulations. Therefore, moments like "let us get this straight as we know, in a friendly manner" are present in your style of persuasion. You yourself also succumb to this strategy of persuasion.

Mercury in Libra
The sixth house falls in Pisces and is ruled by Jupiter (Neptune). It is a little difficult to talk about the zeal to convince anyone of anything in your case. Maybe you easily win your way to people’s hearts and manage to "enchant" them because your approach is to be above things and (apparently) agree to everything. Your strength lies in the fact that you are always willing to give in, compromise, refuse to convince, you simply adapt to others and win your way to them. Jupiter in combination with Neptune makes you very philosophically and spiritually oriented, so "Why do I need to convince anyone of anything?!". You yourself also succumb to this strategy of persuasion (as far as we can talk about a strategy).

Mercury in Scorpio
The sixth house falls in Aries and is ruled by Mars. The methods you use to persuade are related to showing yourself as a bold, courageous, fearless, spontaneous person, to taking chances. You pay attention to the most problematic part that would inevitably lead to the need to fight and compete, thus provoking fear but also undertaking to lead and win the battles. Your strength is in your ability to subordinate others to some extent, make them feel threatened but also safe if they stay behind you. Mars is the planet that knows how to "cut, burn, fight, compete." Therefore, your style contains some type of threats too. You yourself also succumb to this strategy of persuasion.

Mercury in Sagittarius
The sixth house falls in Taurus and is ruled by Venus. The methods you use to persuade are related to listening to viewpoints in a ‘soft’, calm and polite manner. Your strength lies in your ability to focus primarily on material possessions, comfort and convenience, to emphasize only the best part. Your approach is to seek advice but actually to drive the other to give you exactly the advice that you want and have planned to obtain. Venus is a "seductive, artistic, beautiful" planet and therefore you are very convincing when using such a style, accompanied by a delicious meal or a nice gift. You yourself also succumb to this strategy of persuasion.

Mercury in Capricorn
The sixth house falls in Gemini and is ruled by Mercury. The methods you use to persuade are associated with a clear mind, bright intellect, the ability to handle a huge amount of information and quickly catch the point of an unknown matter. Your strong points are to have all kinds of arguments, facts, to know something curious, even if it is a juicy story or gossip. Mercury is a "skilful, witty and clever" planet that operates on the principle "it is a good thing we have jokes to tell the truth through them." Therefore, sometimes you can resort to expedients, intrigues or hint that you know more than you say in order to be convincing. You yourself also succumb to this strategy of persuasion.

Mercury in Aquarius
The sixth house falls in Cancer and is ruled by the Moon. The methods you use to persuade are associated with the expression of strong emotions and with your ability to awaken the emotions of others, to tempt them in some way. Your strength is to exert emotional influence through laughter, excitement, sadness, tears, to infect with emotion. The Moon is a very variable planet (its phases prove it) as well as intuitive and receptive, it "loves" to receive, it is the largest consumer of sunlight. Therefore, sometimes you can resort to temptation and seduction, place baits (especially gifts) to be persuasive. You yourself also succumb to this strategy of persuasion.

Mercury in Pisces
The sixth house falls in Leo and is ruled by the sun. The methods you use to persuade are related to the demonstration of superiority, which clearly shows others that they have to trust you and support you. You actively use compliments and flattery that make others feel good and unconditionally surrender to you. Your strength lies in the inner confidence that no one can refuse you. The Sun is the only "charger" of the rest of the planets and they all go round it. Therefore, your methods of persuasion often have the meaning of "You have no choice but to agree with me." You yourself also succumb to this strategy of persuasion.
