Mercury conjunct Uranus will occur on March 26th, 2017 at 15:05:48 UT (11:05:48 EDT) in tropical Aries, sidereal and constellational Pisces.

It ’gives’ inclination to invent and reform, but – if this conjunction is strongly afflicted by some other planets – native may become headstrong, provoking, injurious and intentionally affronting, rejecting all traditional norms.
