Chess players astrostatistics – Mercury angles

The present post is part of a series of analysis focused on 1303 Grandmasters chess players astrological statistics.

When you are doing an astrological analysis you have to deal with large volumes of information and data’s . Finding the distinctive mark for your target group can be difficult and very often you have to go beyond planet sign position and standard aspects.

On this chess player study I’m made an analysis of Mercury influence starting from the degrees distance to various other elements. I’ve tracked Mercury with Sun, Venus, Mars to Pluto and asteroids. For most of the pairs (ex. Mercury-Saturn) I got standard distribution of values , meaning that were no specific pattern on those values.

But there are some Mercury influences that really got my attention.

The first is Mercury-Mars pair… see the below picture where you can see the distribution of Mercury-Mars distance from 0 to 180 degrees. The blue line shows us how many chess players (in percentage from total no) have a specific Mercury-Mars angle.
Mercury-Mars distance : astrological analysis

As we can easily see there is not a normal distribution but we have a strong outline for first 90 degrees.  Practically 71% of the chess players have the Mercury-Mars distance up to 90 degrees. I found it quite interesting observation. On the chart I added the degrees distance found most often on chess players: 3rd, 21st and 76st degrees.  And the interval between 20 to 80 degrees hold 50% of all data’s.

One conclusion that we can get it is that in order to be a Grandmaster chess player it better to have a Mercury-Mars degree angle below 90 degrees.

Moving forward you can see a combined chart containing values for the following pairs: Mercury – Mars, Mercury-Jupiter, Mercury-Saturn and Mercury – North Node.

Mercury - other planets angle

About Mercury-Mars we already discussed. Looking on the Mercury-Jupiter and Mercury-Saturn we see a normal distribution around 180 degree angles and there is not important deviation. This chart is similar to Mercury wirth outer planets: Uranus, Neptune and Pluto.

But looking on Mercury – North Node values (dark green line) we see a strong emphasize on 50-80 degrees interval ,which counts for 24% of total chess players, and last 30 degrees – 150-180 , which counts for 21% of the chess players. We see here a reverse pattern compared with Mercury-Mars: the values towards 180 degrees angle are higher. But we should remember that Mercury oppose NN (180 degrees) means Mercury conjunct South Node! This means that Mercury conjunct with South Node adds some weight on a chess player database.

Now let’s move to one of the most interesting found on this Mercury angles study: Mercury and asteroids.

I’ve included here Vesta, Ceres, Juno and Pallas – the big Four. See the chart below for a clear picture, followed by my comments.

Mercury and asteroids

When I first build this chart I was quite amazed by the distribution of Mercury-asteroids angles. We can easily see that on all pairs there is a strong outline for the 0-90 degrees interval! And on all Mercury angles with asteroids.  It’s quite similar with Mercury-Mars stats.

Juno, Pallas and Vesta are going head to head and are keeping the same ratio. Mercury-Ceres is a little bit different with a strong focus on 20-50 degress interval.  The first 3 asteroids are very strong on conjunctions and first degrees interval.

The reason I’ve made the asteroid analysis is the Mercury-Mars distribution. And I wanted to see if there is a connection between Mercury, Mars and Pallas Athena.  I consider Pallas having a Mercury-Mars flavour:

‘According to mythology, Athena was the favorite daughter of Zeus. She was said to have sprung from his head full grown and clothed in armor. The goddess was usually shown wearing a helmet and carrying a spear and shield. Like her father, she also wore the magic aegis a goatskin breastplate, fringed with snakes, that produced thunderbolts when shaken. Athena was very different from the war god Ares. She represented the intellectual and civilized side of war she was not so much a fighter as a wise and prudent adviser.’ Source:

Finding some interesting patterns related to Mercury-Mars-Pallas on Chess players is quite interesting and it makes a lot of sense. When playing chess you need to combine a good thinking (Mercury) with boldness (Mars) but in a civilized way (Pallas). And do not forget that in the end on the chess table there is a war going on :)

I hope you find this information interesting and if you notice something that I’ve missed please let me know. I will continue my analysis on chess players with other interesting finds.

    Nice work! You do some pretty hard-core # crunching around here, and I certainly appreciate the data! The Pallas connection would certainly make sense – Athena was a tactician whereas Mars was the warrior-fighter. Mars had no real strategy or finesse, which is why I think that Pallas connection is so telling.

    Excellent thought-provocation! Any thoughts on how Saturn (discipline) might fit into the equation? Thanks, Dan!

    I’m also a astrology resarcher, so a am very happy to see your results. Congratulation for your very valable work!

    Two advise for you:

    – I suggest you to use stratistical tests, for example the khi square test
    – Listen the sesonal variation in human birth (generaly). It would be very useful if you coud get the the romanian birth data from the Romanisan Statistical Office?

    I suggest you to take the contact each other, and discuss the results!

    Good luck!

    I think it’s also good to look for chess brilliance in Mercury – Uranus aspects. I noticed that actually difficult aspects help to form the brilliance! Conjunction, squares, oppositions, as well as trines/sextiles are just mental magic. Chess certainly involves mental discipline (saturn-mercury) and boldness (mars-mercury) but also general brilliance and creativity (mercury-uranus). Some examples: Gelfand (direct square Mercury (gemini) – Uranus (virgo)), Anand (square Mercury (Capricorn) – Uranus (Libra)), etc). It will be also interesting to look at mercury-pluto aspects I think.

    Loved your research, awesome job!

    Yes. No problem. I’ll be honoured to have it translate it in turkish.

    I will soon post something about Chess on my blog (in French smile) and link it to your article.

    Testing Uranus could also be interesting indeed… and I am surprised too by Saturn being so shy. Maybe the major impact of computer age on Chess World (?)

    I also profoundly agree with your feeling about Pallas and the flavour ‘Mercury Mars’ (which especially leads to the idea of ‘coordination’)… By the way your study shows an interrelation between those 3 factors.. sustaining (ligthly smile) the idea of their common form or effect in combination.

    Thanks for your work
