Mercury's meaning in Astrology

In Astrology, Mercury symbolizes the conscious mind, personal intellect, mental capacities and communications skills, the personality components that deal with learning, data gathering, informational exchange, the handling and applications of knowledge, critical judgment, and logic, discrimination, and analysis.

On a social level, Mercury also represents mobility, travel, interpersonal understanding and communication, comprehension, and the ability to make rational, informed choices and decisions.

Mercury is always found in either the same sign as the Sun, or the sign before or the sign after. When it is in direct motion, Mercury zips through a sign in a little over two weeks. But it slows down, stalls, and retrogrades so often (as many as three times a year -- far more often than any other planet) that its path can hardly be considered predictable or regular.

Mercury in Astrology

* My Notes About Mercury -- A comprehensive list -- of random things about Mercury -- in no particular order ---> Yellow is a Mercury color!! ---> About Mercury ---> * Mercury is Astrology's symbol for your intellect, your conscious mind. It's that wondrous, mysterious part of you that deals in sensory messages -- the experience and meaning you get from the things you see, hear, taste, touch and smell.

* 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

* 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.

More on Mercury

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 Retrograde

* Mercury Retrograde -- Rethinking Your Present Direction ---> In the territory of the mind -- When Mercury is retrograde (Mercury Rx -- in shorthand), it is a time of rethinking, refocusing and re-communicating. In Astrology, Mercury represents your intellect; your mental focus; your mind and how you use its assets.

Mercury Retrograde in Virgo -- Rethinking Work and Health ---> Rethinking "everyday stuff" -- When Mercury is retrograde in Virgo, it's time to reconsider all the things that comprise your everyday life routines, your working conditions and arrangements and your health maintenance practices -- the ways you take care of your physical body ... so you can go on doing all the things life requires of you. That covers a lot of ground. None of it glamorous -- or even much fun; all of it important.

* Mercury in Virgo Brings ... -- Working with Mercury in Virgo ---> Mercury in Virgo brings ---> Mercury in Virgo brings -- for everyday consciousness and data handling ---> An emphasis on being precise, exacting and factually correct in what you say, think and write Critical, rational, orderly attitudes ... strongly preferring intellect over emotion, reason and logic over intuition Making your talents useful, giving service with the work you do, improving life's quality by doing what you do well

* When Mercury is in Virgo -- Your Intellectual Self in the Sign of -- Work and Service ---> Getting work done! ---> Mercury is the astrological symbol for your conscious mind, your use of intellectual energy, your ability to generate ideas and communicate knowledge, your capacity for learning and study, and your aptitude for processing language and information.

Gemini & Virgo
Mercury rules 'em both

* Born with the Sun in Gemini -- The Gemini Character ---> Gemini likes to have back-up ---> Creatures of the mind ---> Gemini is one of the Zodiac's most intellectual signs. Reading, writing, learning, talking, sharing viewpoints and opinions, gathering facts and data, communicating in all the ways you can imagine is what Gemini is all about. Geminis love words ... and jokes, and puns. They love odd pieces of wisdom like trivia, and word games, and "Twenty Questions," and "Jeopardy."

Horoscopes for the Season of Gemini

* Born with the Sun in Virgo -- The Virgo Character ---> Virgo's symbol is the young woman ... the virgin. ---> Virgos devote themselves to work. ---> I will try to keep this brief. I know how Virgos like efficiency. Work and service are their passions. They'll find it -- or at least what they define as it -- even if they have to make it up. A Virgo in his heart of hearts wants to be useful. Virgos can be the most selfless, dedicated, indefatigable workers in the world.

Mercury in Virgo
From the Blogs, Ezines
and Elsewhere

Mercury -- From Everyday Astrology ---> 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 ....

Mercury in Virgo -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Mercury in Virgo loves order ---> Well, there's been a shift in the intellectual sector again. Mercury has left Leo & come home to Virgo, one of two signs he rules. Gemini is the other. The sign of the twins, where Mercury (& all the other planets) like to double up on everything. So this is really no surprise. But ruling two signs means he also has two jobs, two sets of responsibilities -- & two different outlooks. On the one hand it sounds kind of schizophrenic, living in a split ...
