The Moon & Mercury

I intended yesterday's segment to be mostly about Mercury, but my Inner Writer decided to go in another direction. She does that sometimes. But that got me thinking. True, the Moon and Mercury are two astrological citizens that "don't get much respect." For a long time, I, too, usually brushed over them. They were there, but what did they really do? How did they really matter?

It seems to me ... in the days before the internet, there was a general feeling that "most people think alike ... most people think like I do ... friends, family, people I know. We usually agree on pretty much everything." I certainly thought that. I figured most people were honest and kind, decent and "nice." And it was pretty easy to avoid anyone who wasn't.

The Moon and Mercury

Quick Notes on the Moon ---> The Moon is second fiddle? Maybe. Maybe not. ---> * The Moon in your Natal Chart is considered the second-most important element in your horoscope ... & therefore in your character. But there are plenty of reasons (& arguments) to take exception to this except as a general statement of status in the astrological array. * The Moon symbolizes your Inner Self, your Emotional Self ... the part of your character that feels & responds to things

Quick Notes on Mercury -- It gives you the basics -- and saves a lot of time ---> Mercury ... and duality ---> * Mercury is the closest known planet to the Sun in our Solar System. It is never more than about 28° away from the Sun, which means it is always very close to the Sun in your horoscope and is often found in the same sign as the Sun. * Mercury rules two Zodiac signs -- Gemini and Virgo.

The Moon & Mercury

I wonder if beginning Astrologers tend to overlook the importance of the transiting Moon and Mercury when working with horoscopes. It's exciting to look at the movements of the outer planets, the aspects they make, the back and forth of their retrograde cycles ... which is where Life's Big Dramas unfold. These can take months or years to finally finish the work they set in motion.

These fast moving inner planets, however, aren't nearly as spectacular. The Moon brings moods and feelings, reactions that can change in a matter of hours. And Mercury always hangs out so close to the Sun it can be hard to separate what's going on with him from what's attributable to the Sun's position and behavior. But there is a difference. You'll see it if you watch closely.

The Moon & Mercury

Basic Stuff About the Moon ---> Reflections of your inner world ---> * Every month the Moon travels through all twelve Zodiac signs. It completes its circuit every 27.3 days staying in each sign just under 2 1/2 days. * The Moon rules Cancer, one of the emotional, intuitive Water signs. * The Moon is associated w/ the interests of the 4th house of the horoscope which rules the life areas of home, family, roots, history, private life and living arrangements.

Basic Stuff About Mercury in Astrology ---> About Mercury ---> * Mercury occupies the innermost orbit of any other planet in our Solar System. Relative to Earth it is located on the other side of Venus. Mercury is the planet closest to the Sun. * Mercury moves completely through the Zodiac in about a year, but his progression through the signs is very irregular. He goes into retrograde three to four times a year. When he's traveling direct, he stays in a sign about two weeks.
