When Mercury is in Virgo
Your Intellectual Self in the Sign of Work and Service

by Rebecca Brents

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.

When Mercury is in Virgo, intellectual energy is in one of its best, most forthright forms. Ideas are efficient, meticulous and objective. Thinking is precise, exacting, practical, and demonstrably useful. Mercury in Virgo is concerned with "perfection." It emphasizes "getting work done" and doing good service for others.

People want to be helpful and efficient, but there is often an undertone of anxiety ... a poorly disguised "inferiority complex" attached to this blend. In its presence, you want to "justify your existence" ... and are concerned with the quality of your work. You may look at your efforts and see nothing but flaws and imperfections staring back with a critical, unsympathetic glare.

Under stress with Mercury in Virgo, ideas, comments, and remarks are inconsistent, impatient, insincere and petty. People are unfocused, narrow-minded, superficial, impractical and fault-finding. Mercury stressed in Virgo is painfully critical and constantly unhappy ... and he faces a ton of trouble over the next two months. Unfortunately, that means ... so do we.

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 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.

Mercury and the Miracle of the Mind -- Astrology's Search for Intelligent Life ---> 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.

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 Natal Chart -- Fore, Aft and Center ---> Mercury, named for the Roman god of commerce, communication and messages, has come to symbolize in Astrology, the way a Native employs his mind, wit, charm, and intellect, the way he communicates his thoughts, views, and opinions, and the way he acquires ... and applies ... the knowledge and information he uses to manage his life. Mercury is concerned with learning, logic, rational analysis, and language skills.

When Mercury Trails the Sun -- Mercury retrograde moves behind the Sun ---> 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.
