« Astrology and Planets in the Zodiac
The Planet Mercury - exalted in Virgo and Aquarius, rules over Wednesday.
The Planet Mercury, the closest planet to The Sun, is known as The Messenger of The Gods. Astrologically Mercury, the Romanised version of the earlier Greek Hermes, represents our intellect, thoughts and communication. During the short seven days every few months that Mercury can be found in your sign you will show more rationality, reasoning and adaptability. At opposition however, Mercury can cause more erratic, volatile or unstable tendencies. Mercury rules Gemini as the day sign with communication and intellect and Virgo as the night sign with analysis and critical ability. Mercury is also seen as the great healer. In mythology, Mercury's staff, The Caduceus indicated occult forces represented by two serpents, Ida the feminine channel of The Moon and Pingala the masculine channel of The Sun. Both serpents are seen to entwine the rod of Shushumna which represents the central channel of the spinal cord. The Caduceus emblem often describes commerce and negotiation but can also represent deception and theft. Mercury is also a god of crossroads as the divine messenger and counsellor, but is also the prince of thieves.
