• Mercury in GeminiMERCURY ENTERS GEMINI

    Mentally instable?

    Mercury enters one of the signs that it rules on the 3rd of June.

    Mercury is obviously in his element here, a rational and agile thinker open to new ideas and experimentations, puns and intellectual flexibility are also part of the game although Mercury is also the prankster of the zodiac and here words could be used to alter the truth in some way!

    A little bit of history:

    Mercury in the Greek myth is associated with Hermes and he held an amazing number of roles here; thief, storyteller (aka liar), trickster, magician, craftsman, messenger of the gods, the god of boundaries, commerce, merchants, words and language among the many. He was the only god who had permission to travel freely between the Underworld and the heights of Olympus.

    Mercury is so versatile that he can take on any of the archetypes represented by the other planets too and in this way he is also good at making deals or compromises and the house placement of Mercury in your chart will show where you’re good at this also.

    Alan Leo’s description of Mercury from his book “The Art of Synthesis”

    “A considerable portion of the correct judgement of a nativity is derived from the study of Mercury, its position, aspects and progress, the tendency of the mind being easily seen from the sign which Mercury occupies a birth.”

    Mercury will make the following aspects during its stay in Gemini:

    03-04 June: trine Pluto (01°52’ Gemini-Aquarius) and then conjunct Jupiter on the 4th (02°12’ Gemini) – for those involved with their natal chart in this transit there is a huge possibility for advancement be this in terms of authority, power, professional success and/or personal wealth but as with all harmonic aspects, you need to invest yourself in this!

    12 June: square Saturn (19°19’ Gemini-Pisces) – some serious thinking or planning may be needed now.

    17 June: square Neptune (29°52’ Gemini-Pisces) – it’s easy to confuse and be confused, try to keep facts real and not tell untruths to yourself and others.
