Your mind makes you special
As an Astrologer I see both the mundaneness of common knowledge -- handling the basic facts of awareness and everyday rituals -- and a touch of miracles in Mercury.
In Astrology, this planet named for the winged messenger of the gods represents your conscious human mind, the part of you that makes you a member of the most intelligent species on the planet, the part of you that makes you human -- and sometimes fallible.
But it's also the part that lets you see yourself as both limited and godlike in your being -- one step below the angels maybe, but aware of your own potential ... and eager to close the gap. You can see yourself as all this ... and at the same time ... as simply human.
Think about it -- no irony intended. Even without moving into the realm of mysticism and other-worldliness, your mind sets you apart from everything -- even all other humans -- as special.
You are totally unique -- unlike any other creature or human on earth. Your perceptions, experiences and interpretation of what life is about, your place in it and what you think about who you are ... these are yours alone.

* What Does Mercury Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> In Astrology, Mercury represents your conscious, rational mind. It tells a lot about your intellectual self; your ability to study, learn, analyze, communicate and work with information. Mercury depicts your capacity to form ideas and opinions, the way you deal with facts, and the way you process data. It shows the kinds of things that interest you ... and what you do with what you know.
* Mercury in General -- Your Inner Selves of Learning and Work ---> Like Venus, your Mercury energy describes two inner selves. One manages your mind and all its talents; the other is in charge of the work you do ... the ways you use your skills and abilities to help others and build the kind of life your want for yourself. Again, as with Venus, these are usually reduced to the basic categories of "mind" and "work," but they also include whole subdivisions of behavior and talents.

Basic Stuff About Mercury ---> 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. But when his retrograde cycle kicks in, he can be in a sign for over two months.
