Mercury in General
What Mercury in Astrology Means
Your Inner Selves of Learning and Work

Creating your intellectual reality

Like Venus, your Mercury 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.

Mercury, too, aims to keep these two significant life areas working comfortably ... with each other and with your inner selves who have other interests. (Again, there are 10 major ones who comprise your psycho-spiritual Inner Family.)

Your mind ... and how you use it

Your Mercury energy wants your mind ... and the work you do with it ... to be fun, educating and useful -- for you and those you meet, live with and work for. Sometimes Life cooperates in this; sometimes it doesn't. Sometimes your different Inner Selves cooperate in this; sometimes they don't. You -- and your Mercury energy -- will act one way when things are going well. You will both become "a completely different person" when they aren't.

For general purposes, consider Mercury your Inner Self of Intellectual Engagement and Practical Applications. Essentially, Mercury gathers information on a wide range of topics ... from general to specific and from profound knowledge to trivial facts. Then he finds ways to put it to work doing useful service and support for you ... and the people you work for.

Working smarter

This is how he intends to improve life for everyone, using what he knows to simply make things run better. He is always gathering in new facts, always looking for ways to improve his efficiency and methods. Getting stuff done faster and more economically is what simply makes his day!

There are also many other facets to Mercury energy within these broad categories. Also, from time to time, small parts of these roles will be taken over -- and used ... or infringed on ... by other Inner Selves, but these general categories define Mercury's consistent interests ... the part of life these Inner Selves manage.

Mercury in Astrology
Light Reading & Open Articles

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.

Mercury -- Physics, Metaphysics and Myth -- Part 1 ---> Physics ---> Mercury is the closest planet in our Solar System to the Sun. It is about twice the size of Pluto, but for now, it's the smallest official planet since scientists decided to mess around and demote Pluto down to "dwarf planet" status ... for a while. We'll see what the future brings. Mercury is also classified as a "terrestrial planet," meaning it's made of solid rock and dust, etc. In structure, it is the most similar planet to Earth.

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.
