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 General -- Your Inner Selves of Learning and Work ---> Learning stuff, using your mind and putting it to 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.

What Does Mercury Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> In mythology, Mercury was the winged messenger of the Gods. -- Your mind -- at work and play -- 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 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.

The Lunar Light

The Moon Position Presently Indicates:
A productive working alliance between intellect and instinct arrives, opening the opportunity for organized achievement and "better ideas" regarding work, lifestyle, health matters, and the services you offer other people -- both through your job and through the errands, tasks, favors, and commitments you take on to make life run more smoothly for everyone. Offering advice can strengthen some team effort enough to produce benefits you hadn't counted on before.

The Next Lunar Aspect Will Be:
The Moon in Sagittarius Sextile The Sun in Libra on Mon 25th of Sep 2017 at 2:58 am MDT

The Moon Will Be Void of Course:
from Wed 27th of Sep 2017 at 5:09 am MDT until it enters Capricorn on Wed 27th of Sep 2017 at 10:24 am MDT
