Mercury in Astrology

As with most systems of organized thought, Astrology contains a foundational structure you rely on as your "bedrock" of meaning & concept. You build on that & from there you branch out into more sophisticated, complex areas of thought & development. This becomes a little more complicated in practice because Astrology itself is a language built on a system of symbols -- many of which are profound & elaborate.

In Astrology, the planetary foundation pieces are the Sun & the Moon. These represent the consciousness of being & the subconsciousness of history -- "having been." One moves from the eternal present -- the constant "now" -- into the adjacent future. The other moves from the eternal, subjective past into the present. Together, they unite your current consciousness, your memories & your immediate plans.

Mercury then is the next step up on the hierarchy of conscious engagement. Beyond just being aware that you exist, Mercury, the symbol of your logical mind & intellectual skills, reaches out into the surrounding world ... seeking data & bringing back information for you to process.

Mercury reveals the way you work with knowledge, share the facts you've found & opinions you've formed. It shows the kind of information that catches your interest & how you're apt to interpret & apply what you learn. It's the intellectual lens through which you view everything that defines & comprises "reality" for you.

You use Mercury energy to form ideas & opinions. It helps shape your beliefs & perspectives. Your particular point of view is the result of Mercury's magic. It gives nuance & meaning to what you absorb through your personal experience ... & what you make of it. It shows how you learn & how you communicate. Mercury deals with your everyday knowledge. ... your "street smarts."
