Yellow is a Mercury color

Your mind, intellectual energy & assets

Mercury in Astrology is the symbol for your conscious mind with its amazing array of accessories and gifts. That's the short answer to the question, "What does Mercury represent?" ... because the Sun, Moon and all the known planets have distinct meanings in Astrology.

But like most quick short answers, this one is incomplete. Mercury doesn't just symbolize your mind ... it represents all the things your mind can do, all the intellectual tasks simple daily living requires ... and also some things that aren't readily obvious. So let's talk specifics.

The Moon rules emotions, feelings,
instinct & intuition

One kind of knowledge & information

There are two basic ways to receive information, acquire knowledge and from that form conclusions about what's happening around you ... and how the world works. The Moon is one of the celestial citizens in charge of the unconscious channels. Neptune also has a hand in it, but together they preside over the realm of intuition, feelings, emotions, psychic energy and material from the Collective Unconscious.

These comprise a very real, very valid kind of knowledge ... those gut feelings & hunches, the things you just know without knowing how you know them ... and the flashes of meaning & psychic messages some of us notice and trust and use as reliably as any spoken word.

* Mercury -- Ruler of Gemini -- Ruler of Virgo ---> Yellow is a Mercury color! ---> The metaphor for your mind ---> Mercury, quick, intense, lively and highly mobile -- racing its way around the Sun faster than any of the other known planets, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's mental and communications skills

From the Blogs, Ezines
and Elsewhere

When Mercury Leads the Sun -- Mercury passes and moves out -- in front of the Sun ---> Yellow is a Mercury color. ---> Racing ahead, out in front like he ought to ---> When Mercury leads the Sun, your intellectual shift moves gradually out of the pensive, reflective, "planning mode" you've occupied for the past several weeks, and you're ready to talk, write, and share ideas openly and freely again with "strangers."

When Mercury Trails the Sun -- Mercury retrograde moves behind the Sun ---> Yellow is a Mercury color. ---> Quiet time ---> In the next few weeks you'll become more contemplative, spend more time in planning and research, quietly consider what you've learned recently ... and what you want to do next with yourself, your life, your interests, and your mind. With Mercury in a trailing position, you will be more observant and less talkative, more intuitive ...

* Mercury ... and the Miracle of the Mind -- Astrology's Search for Intelligent Life ---> Yellow is a Mercury color! ---> 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.
