Mercury

Mercury is Astrology's symbol for your intellectual energy. As such, it's in charge of all the things your mind can do. This covers everything from the way you learn to the way you communicate, from the topics that interest you to the way your imagination forms pictures & feeds your creative soul. Whatever the mind can accomplish falls under the aegis of Mercury.

Part of it works through sensory data, part through things you think & talk about, part through things you learn from research & study, part through what you read & write about, part through speculation ... making predictions, filling in the blanks, coming to conclusions & assembling forecasts about what all this might mean -- or what it might do, & how you should respond -- in the future.

Mercury

Mercury symbolizes your Intellectual Self. It's the part of you that thinks, learns, remembers & communicates. It gets ideas & forms opinions. It develops perspectives. It reads & writes -- & does research. It moves around, explores, talks, figures stuff out & solves problems. It invents stuff. It talks things over with other minds it meets -- & learns what they know so it can add that data to the pile.

It puts two & two together & comes up with four -- sometimes. Sometimes it comes up with something else. If he's doing his job well, it's constantly revising what it thinks / what it "knows" about the world & devising different ways to work with it -- to stay a step or two ahead of any problems. Sometimes that works / sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes its flexibility depends also on the sign it occupies.

Mercury

Especially in today's world of digital reality & online everything, the way you develop & work with your Mercury energy can be even more important than your involvement with your Sun energy. So knowing what Mercury is about -- its meaning in Astrology -- * maybe its sign position & house location -- can be just as important to your knowing who you really are as all your Sun / Sun Sign stuff. Astrology's standard.

Mercury represents your mind, your intellect & everything connected to that, including physical movement, your ability to think & learn, your ability to communicate & share information, your language skills -- & your talents for figuring stuff out & solving problems. In today's social media climate, sometimes the first time you meet someone is on a social media platform, in a chat room, through an email or in a phone call.

Mercury

Mercury represents the part of you that is essentially your Intellectual Self, & he has at least two ways to function, two ways to "do his job" -- & usually at least two jobs to do to fulfill his duties to keep you & all your Inner selves performing & contributing to both you & your survival & the benefit of your community.

In his "Gemini" mode, he roams around, physically & intellectually. He notices things, has experiences, learns things he didn't know before. He gets ideas & forms beliefs about what's happening, what it means, how it works, how he needs to react & most importantly what good it is -- or how it's harmful, & how he can use (or avoid) it in the future. Then he remembers so you can call on it again.

Mercury

I went looking tonight to see what I'd written on the planet Mercury for this feature. (Never mind why. I just did.) Turns out the answer is "not much," so let's correct that. The Sun and the Moon get plenty of attention, & Mercury is just as important. All the planets are, actually. Each one is significant & deserves his time in the spotlight. I declare tonight, it's Mercury's turn.

The Sun = ego. The Moon = emotions. Mercury = the mind. That's it in a nutshell. Mercury is Astrology's symbol for consciousness, the intellect. It's the energy, ability & power that separates & elevates you as a human over every other expression of energy on the planet -- maybe in the Universe, who knows?
