external link:
In astrology, Mercury is the messenger, the total body receiver through which you take in and share information. Mercury is the magician, juggling impressions taken in through sight, sound, the intellect, and creating patterns that form your perception. Mercury provides the narrative for your story, which can be told through emotional waves, abstract concepts, sensate impressions, intuition, or a synthesis of these. Each Mercury sign is a unique filter, and guides the way you engage with others, and form your worldview.
Lends a mind ignited by the initial thrust of an idea outward, often coming out in forceful, confrontational ways. Drawn to the shock of the new, the daring impulse that sets them off on a promising path at the edge of experience.

Quality and Element: Cardinal Fire


sharp, focused, bright, competitive, daring, decisive, innovative, quick-witted, originality

Possible Challenges:

harsh, insensitive, brusque, dismissive, defensive, combative, intellect arrogance

Famous People with Mercury in Aries:
Albert Einstein, Carol Burnett, Christopher Walken, Emma Thompson, Adolph Hitler, David Letterman, Coretta Scott King, Al Pacino, Sarah Jessica Parker, Mariah Carey, Marlon Brando

The Aries Mentality:

Those with Mercury in Aries seek out the new, and present ideas to others energetically. They dazzle others by intuitively hitting on the essentials of a situation. They speak in a direct style that leaves the prolonged mulling over to others. They tell it like it is, and sometimes their honesty is brutal. They are forthright, so others don't have to read between the lines. Decisions are made quickly, and carry a sense of momentum to set it in motion. This makes them dynamic leaders who walk their talk, and inspire others to act.

Their mind is like a high-powered flashlight, with a concentrated focus. They're always seeking that breakthrough moment, when a brilliant notion captures their interest. Theirs is a mind hungry for stimulation and vigorous exchange. That need for verbal sparring can make them confrontational, always escalating conversations into arguments. They provoke others through language, and at extremes can be ruthless in their teasing.

The need to be brilliant and "win" debates means they encounter others as adversaries, even those they love. If this is not kept under control, they become insufferable "know-it-alls." They're restless and grow visibly frustrated when faced with delays. This Mercury also grows impatient with those they consider dim witted, which from their estimation, is a huge swath of the population. They love mental challenges that involve strategy and competition, like chess.

This Mercury's opinions and observations are creations of a self-centered mind. They can be defensive if challenged, because they are their thoughts. As forceful communicators, they are known to "ram" their ideas down others throats. But more often, their confident style infuses a stagnant atmosphere with new life. The fired up way they describe things is contagious, and soon others are alive with ideas, too.

The originality of Mercury in Aries makes them stand out in their fields. A concept they've hatched might take on a life of its own, and be an idea that others rally around. Chances are, they've got a few followers that hang on their every word. Their gift is sudden illumination, and it often startles others. Their challenge is to grow patient with the details, and to stick with projects through the tedious bits. They're genius at starting little fires, and quickly moving on to the next big thing. They are rarely bored, since there's always something new to discover.
In the sign of the builder, one can be a slow, deliberate communicator. Impressions are shaped through the senses, keeping them close to down-to-earth challenges that involve the realm of matter and form.

Quality and Element: Fixed Earth


good memory, hands-on, tactile, capable, results-oriented, tangible outcomes, deliberate

Possible Challenges:

stubborn, restricted speech, heavy mind, plodding thoughts, catching flies, rigid

Famous People with Mercury in Taurus:
Penelope Cruz, Salvador Dali, Daniel Day Lewis, Miles Davis, Marquis de Sade, Uma Thurman, George Clooney, John F. Kennedy, Clint Eastwood, Cher, Linda Goodman (astrologer-poet), Crispin Glover, Rene Zellweger, Johnny Depp, Kofi Annan, Samantha Morton, Martha Graham

The Taurus Mentality:

When Mercury is in Taurus, the mind slows down to take in sensory perceptions. Those with this fixed earth Mercury in the natal chart build up impressions carefully. They speak slowly, often choosing each word like a mason chooses bricks for a foundation. What this Mercury loses in speed, is made up for in thoroughness. They want a solid grounding in what they're experiencing -- often in a hands-on way -- as they shape perceptions.

This Mercury likes to learn by doing, and to take slow, steady steps toward a practical goal. Whether it's a solidly constructed building, song or educational program, they want to see tangible results in the end. They work best in an unhurried environment where they're not pressed to make leaps of logic. This Mercury approaches progress with caution, planning out each step to make sure it's on solid ground. Like the tortoise in the fable, they patiently deal with what's in front of them, and progress slowly toward the finish line.

Mercury loses its restless edge, and becomes mesmerizingly grounded in Taurus. They speak with the authority of earthy wisdom, a knowing that comes from leaving no stone unturned. Their words come out full-bodied, rich, and rooted in the real world. They can be no-nonsense, which saves them time in the long run. They're not fantasizing about what could be, because they're enmeshed in what is. Sometimes this locks them into safe boxes, where the unproven or new is treated as suspect.

Taurus is Venus-ruled, and as artists, they're apt to approach it as craft, becoming masterful at what they do. This Mercury lends the strong focus and discipline to make it through the apprenticeship period. Often they're graced with melodious voices, and shine in mediums in which the body is the instrument.

In Taurus, Mercury seeks to create things that are enduring, tangible and stable. Ideally, what is created is a reflection of deeply held values. There's a need to have something to show for the effort, like growing wealth and possessions. This is a mind geared toward consistent effort over time, with the expectation of an abundant harvest.
Thoughts and impressions whizz quickly in and out, lending a curious, chatty, nervous nature that needs mental stimulation to feel alive. As social observers, they're drawn to fields that make use of their restless, brilliant minds.

Quality and Element: Mutable Air


socially nimble, trendsetter, delights with wordplay, bright, funny, sparkly, curious, flexible, playful, light-hearted, great mimic

Possible Challenges:

strung out, scattered, flighty, ingratiating, chatterbox, superficial, excels at mind games, potential for devious trickery

Famous People with Mercury in Gemini:
Anne Frank, Tom Cruise, Helena Bonham Carter, David Helfgott, Frances McDormand, Michael Palin, Franz Kafka, Brian Wilson, Josephine Baker, the Dalai Lama XIV, Meryl Streep, Paul McCartney, Prince, Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie

The Gemini Mentality:

In classical astrology, Mercury is dignified in Gemini, the sign it rules. This Mercury has the speediest of minds, running a zigzag path through the world of ideas. Mercury is the messenger in Gemini, always in the social mix, hungry for the stimulation of new people, situations, news, colorful sights and culture. Those with this Mercury always have the mental wheels spinning. They are swift absorbers of information, and holders of encyclopedic knowledge on an infinite variety of topics.

Here Mercury is enamored with all knowledge, down to the smallest notion. They're intellectual sifters and searchers, always looking for the gems that connect two ideas. Mercury in Gemini loves to tap into the minds of others, and exchange what each knows through conversation. This makes them happiest in verbal, fast-paced environments, with a passing parade of new people to learn from.

Mercury is a magician in Gemini, juggling all it takes in, and often presenting that back into the world through writing, the arts or music. Being conduits of culture comes naturally, and like Paul McCartney has said of his prolific songwriting, just something they have to do. They're lifelong learners, and rarely bored, since there are always new things to discover in life. Mercury here may be called a dilettante, because he promotes happy dabbling in many areas. This Mercury always has a new fascination to share, but can prefer to skim the surface to plunging the depths of a topic. This allows Mercury to maintain a sense of forward motion.

This mercurial character has a dark side, and often makes snap judgements based on superficial information. When the trickster has hidden motives, the brilliance there is put to use in destructive ways. It's a Mercury prone to playing mind games, and when angry, using words as pointy weapons. A bored Mercury in Gemini will stir up drama, just to make things more interesting. They can be the worst gossips at work or in the 'hood. Deeper thinkers might dub this Mercury an intellectual lightweight. When this Mercury is idle, without a creative channel, it can be the devil's workshop.

Mercury in Gemini is gifted in many ways. They shine in social situations, because they're genuinely curious about everyone at the party. It's easy for them to mingle, and engage with each new person they meet. They've got a twinkle in the eye that attracts, are quick to laugh, and have an instinct for lightening things up with humor.
Has an awareness woven by the emotional impressions picked up, and shares ideas in a sensitive, often deeply felt way. Often highly imaginative, but has trouble thinking clearly and objectively.

Quality and Element: Cardinal Water


vivid thoughts, emotional memories, circumspect, soulful speaker, imaginative

Possible Challenges:

hiding perceptions out of fear, view clouded by emotion, overly subjective, reactive

Notables with Mercury in Cancer:
George Bernard Shaw, Alanis Morissette, Tom Hanks, Cat Stevens, Arianna Huffington, Carlos Santana, Bryan May, Henry David Thoreau, Debbie Harry, Franka Potente, Hilary Swank, Nicole Kidman, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Willem Dafoe, Ian Curtis, Liv Tyler, Carly Simon

The Cancer Mentality:

When your Mercury is in Cancer, the mood or emotional impressions are what shapes perception. It's hard for you to engage in a just the facts ma'am type of conversation. You're geared toward communication that resonates on a more personal level. It has to do with the intimate human experience via the heart, and as a cardinal sign, Mercury initiates through conversation, art, music, literature and healing arts. There are gifts here that have to do with finding the universal in the personal story.

In watery Cancer, you are moody and defensive with your opinions. You've got a sensitivity to criticism about how ideas are presented, and can overreact if challenged. You're not easily fooled by false flattery, since you're able to read the undercurrents of what is said. This comes from a powerful intuition, and can be your ally when learning who to trust with your heartfelt observations. You're not big on small talk, preferring to save your thoughts for those rare intimate conversations with those you're close to.

You're not always quick with your wit, but have a subtle knowing that adds depth to your humor. You come to the verbal aid of the vulnerable, and can be counted on for a kind word when it's needed. Because you resonate with the deeper meaning of life, you're often called on to make speeches at family events, or write the sentiments on the birthday card. You're able to sense when someone is socially awkward or troubled, and know how to draw them out of their shell.

Your Mercury interweaves emotions with thoughts, so that a memory can cause all those feelings to rush back. This can be a blessing and a curse. Sometimes it can cause you to lose clarity, especially if the unresolved issues start to pile up. An attitude of forgiveness for self and other can help calm the choppy waters of the past.

Mercury in Cancer can find an outlet for emotional intelligence through the arts. You're able to express the depths of any experience, and the poignant yearnings we all have to live, love and belong. This gift also makes you a caring co-worker, parent, friend and so on.

Your interests might lean toward the past, and the family. You might be drawn toward history, researching the family tree, and the fascinating area of healing collective emotional trauma. The ancestral soul can be engaged through self-expression, as well.
Lends theatrical flair, conveying ideas in an energized, confident and larger-than-life way. Thrives on seeing their radiance reflected in the eyes of admirers, drawing them to fields that put them out front.

Quality and Element: Fixed Fire


engaging speaker, colorful language, dramatic, passionate, confident, inspiring, grand visions, heart-felt

Possible Challenges:

trouble with details, short attention span, arrogant, inflexible, egotistical, unrealistic

Notables with Mercury in Leo:
Tim Burton, Daniel Radcliffe, Courtney Love, Ringo Starr, Mick Jagger, Roman Polanski, Jonathan Rhys-Meyers, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Sean Penn, Lyndsay Lohan, Kevin Bacon, Robin Wiliams, Bill Clinton, Marianne Williamson, Nelson Mandela, Elisabeth Kubler-Ross
The Leo Mentality:

When Mercury is expressed through the fire sign of Leo, the result is a mind aflame with passion. Whatever draws the attention of Mercury in Leo, in the spontaneous moment, becomes the focus of great concentration. While it lasts, you energize an idea, and bring it to life through colorful language that inspires others, too.

If this is your Mercury, the mind prefers the dramatic to the mundane, which is why you're a riveting speaker. You excel at public speaking, performance, and knowing how to win the hearts of others by 'painting a picture.' You know how to hold the spotlight, but should watch that you don't over do it. Using humor and a sense of play softens your tendency to go over the top with a "me, me, me" ego-based style of communication.

Your warmth in social situations is contagious, and makes it easy for you to make new friends. When you're sparked by what's interesting about another, you've got a gift for bringing out that potential. This makes you a champion of the passions of others. When your own fire is stoked by something, it captures your imagination. But if you're heart is not into it, it's hard for you to fake it.

Having Mercury in a fire sign allows you to take intuitive leaps in your thinking. In Leo, there's always a huge ego investment in what you're doing. This can cause you to take disagreements too personally, since it seems that others are questioning you. Your pride can be injured if an idea is shot down, for example. It's also more challenging for you to get lost in the anonymity of brainstorming. You want and need to be recognized for the uniqueness of your ideas.

Your mind is lit up, when there's a potential for glory and self-expression. Your gift is adding the flourishes. You might write a book in broad strokes, while the editor takes care of the fact-checking and grammar. What makes you a great teller of dramatic tales, can also get you in trouble with tall tales, as the truth is "dramatized." You're rarely boring, and usually have a funny story or two to tell. Your theatrical style makes you a 'character,' as a leader, artist, friend, parent and mate.
Has the ability to analyse complex situations, and approach mental tasks in a matter-of-fact way. Shines when able to apply their knack for details and breaking down the steps, to a purposeful goal.

Quality and Element: Mutable Earth

losing sight of big picture, stickler for a rational narrative, misses nuances of emotion, hyper critical, obsessively meticulous, worry over small problems

Notables with Mercury in Virgo:
Robert Redford, Ray Charles, Salma Hayek, Edward Norton, Madonna, Tori Amos, Coco Chanel, Robert Plant, Freddie Mercury, Alfred Hitchcock, Colin Firth, Neil Armstrong, Sean Connery, Keanu Reeves, Ted Hughes, Sting

The Virgo Mentality:

Virgo is considered a mercurial sign, and those with this placement have gifts of communication. The thinking processes are concise, and have a sense of order built-in. If this is your Mercury, you're apt to be a wordsmith, someone that builds up language carefully. This orderly mindframe translates to a high level of competence in whatever field of work you engage in.

You like to approach new situations in a detached way, and coming to your own conclusion after you've collected all the facts. This makes you a cool head in a crisis. You're able to be matter-of-fact, when others lose their clarity in emotions or passions. You express your views in a modest way, and don't usually need others to validate your perspective. The Virgo mentality is self-contained and whole unto itself, which makes you a clear voice that grasps the essentials.

In Virgo, Mercury speaks with a voice of integrity. What motivates the attempt to understand is a desire for the whole picture, to have an integrated view. You're able to weave in all the threads, seeing how they fit into the big picture. The fascination with the pieces of the puzzle can keep you from seeing the overall structure. You can drive people crazy when your precise focus becomes a pin light on an issue. Getting stuck on the details, can keep you from seeing other dimensions of the situation at hand.

If you're not involved in something that feels purposeful, you lose interest. As a creative thinker, you stick close to the ground, in a structure that's got a real-life rhythm. This gives you the ability to write, draw, sing, express your imagination in ways that others can relate to. Your find the artful in the everyday.

Your manner of speaking is understated, which is why your humor comes off as dry. You notice things that others miss. Your mind separates the wheat from the chaff, drawing out the essentials on which to build a clear vision. You're not easily distracted by empty words, and come across yourself as sincere, a virtuous thinker. This makes others truth your opinion, since it's usually pure, untainted by a hidden motive.

The Virgo mentality is a working one, always seeking to be productive. You like to keep the wheels turning, and enjoy puzzles and wordgames that challenge your mind. You like to read, and are drawn to anything well written, and that meets your standards of research. You're a serious thinker, who is always refining your perspective.

The Libra Mentality:

Those with Mercury in Libra have the ability to see an issue from all sides. This is where their reputation for diplomacy comes from. Sometimes they're elevated to the status of official peacemaker, known to be able to bring harmony to chaos. Because they often have an innate sense of fairness, it's easier for conflicting parties to trust their intentions.

This same gift of seeing all the options and sides can make them indecisive, which can be exasperating to those around them. The delay comes from wanting to weigh the pros and cons carefully, to follow the best course. But if they take too long to decide, sometimes an opportunity passes them by.

They're very easy-going and the best people to meet at parties. They're warm and able to offset any social awkwardness with their charm. You might call Mercury in Libra the smooth operator of Mercury signs. Oftentimes their voices are distinctive in some way, which gives them talent as speakers or performers.

Mercury in Libras love harmony so much, that at times they'll run around conflict to avoid it. This can create all kinds of neuroses and confusing relations with others. It comes from an actual fear of the boat being rocked, since that state makes them very uncomfortable.

Mercury in Libra are synthesizers and bridge builders, whether its merging people or ideas, as with writers born under this Mercury sign.

They may restore balance in every area of life they touch -- from their own personal sphere, to the public stage through activism, social justice, the Arts, writing, speaking, etc.

The Scorpio Mentality:

Mercury in Scorpio in a birth chart gifts the person with a searching mind. It's as if they send the information they pick up through a maze of channels deep within. Often they seem to pick up on everything, especially what goes unsaid. What they offer has depth, while going to the heart of the matter. They may churn over something before offering a perspective.

As a water sign, they read emotional vibes, and are the first to spot a liar. Because of this radar for what's off, they sometimes seem obsessed with other people's character flaws. They are skilled investigators and love having a mystery to solve. This genius for disecting human motivation also makes them gifted artists, often drawn to the darker side of life as subject matter. Mercury in Scorpio understands psychic states that go to a point of no return, when the only way out is through the darkness to the other side.

They've got an almost psychic ability to make leaps of logic that involve the intuition. Being so tuned into subtle dynamics, many find it natural to embrace metaphysical topics and alternative paths. In Mercury, this sign of total transformation, means they may go through radical changes in their mindset in their lives. They'll also have a big impact on others through their depth of wisdom.

When challenged, this Mercury has an instinct for gaining the upper hand in a conversation at any cost. There can be a tendency to cut others down with their poisonous barbs, often as a defensive maneuver. They're a formidable opponent with the ability to poke holes in the presentation of their adversary.

If Mercury in Scorpio has a blind spot, it's with themselves. Often they resist the kind of probing they do of others. Their curiosity with the dark may be part of a lifelong quest to face it fully in themselves.
A bright seeker of sweeping truths, often drawn to fields where ideas have room to grow in every direction. Looks for ways to combine fragments to create a unifying whole, a big picture vision.

Sadge is the map maker, and Mercury here means mental adventures to get a sense of every landscape. Many with this Mercury stay in the academy for as long as possible, thriving in the learning environment.

When your mind is a chaotically moving spotlight, there's a lot that's left in shadow. There's a rush to declare the Truth of the matter, often before all the facts are in. This native often fixes on a passionate thought, but misses subtle nuances. Without tact, this Mercury steps on toes and says hurtful things without meaning to, lacking the subtlety to read a situation on an emotional level.

This Mercury paints a situation in broad strokes, and this kind of sight makes them visionaries for the future. It helps if they've got allies to fill in the details they've missed. These natives shine a klieg light on whatever is in their field of vision, and often are blinded to all else. Their challenge is developing discernment in their quest for the highest truth, so they'll know which threads to follow.

As artist-creators, they infuse the mundane with vitality, proving that sometimes, "God is in the details." These souls are gifted in the fields of science, the arts, comedy, music and as educators, philosophers, activists, politicians or full-time adventure-seeker.

After carefully considering an issue, this Mercury puts forth their opinion. Some have a resonant or booming voice, like James Earl Jones, with wisdom that's of this world, but has a timeless quality. Some with this Mercury use communication to throw their weight around, and may be intimidating.

Mercury in Capricorn has the patience to stick with one subject, and become an authority in their field. They are resourceful and discriminating, and channel their brainpower into just the activities and people that further their goals. This Mercury isn't a fan of idle chit chat. They're communicators that favor self-control, and conversations that are directed toward a purpose. They come across as serious thinkers, and may find it hard to mix and mingle.
During group brainstorming sessions for a project, they'll be the ones that point out the limitations. They like to see the steps to completion, in their mind, before taking on a goal. This Mercury can get lost in pessimism, and have a hard time with intuitive leaps of faith. They want the net to appear before they jump. But being cardinal earth, they're solution is to weave the net themselves.

Famous People with Mercury in Aquarius:
Norman Mailer, Oprah Winfrey, Lou Reed, Benjamin Franklin, Christian Bale, Bill Maher, Drew Barrymore, Thomas Paine

The Aquarian Mentality:

Those with Mercury in Aquarius take great mental leaps forward, and are geared toward logical, objective thinking. Mercury is exalted in this air sign, which means the planet of communication moves along speedily, and with ease. In Aquarius, Mercury has a fixed focus, but information is seemingly plucked out of the air. It's like they're tuned into distant frequencies, that are channeled into this awareness. Because of this, their ideas are often highly original, or ahead of their time.

The Aquarian thinker is a neutral party in any discussion, and has a gift for reading into the collective mindwaves. Their own ideas have the mark of individuality, even eccentricity, but they're aware of the pulse of the group, as well. Their thinking is often progressive, and challenging to the status quo. The Aquarian mindset is loyal to concepts and 'the truth,' not as much to people. That's why they're often verbally combative, and enjoy exposing the subjective bias of opinions. It's possible for them to become 'know-it-alls,' that don't see the flaws in their own thinking.

Sometimes they argue just to be different, and end up defending a train of thought that they're not invested in at all. They're at home in the realm of public discourse, and many notable social commentators and talk show hosts have this Mercury. Not emotionally weighed down by ideas, they can present different sides, and play Devil's Advocate when necessary. This is one role for this change-agent Mercury. The ideas are prodded out of people and tossed around, then synthesized into something totally unexpected. Their goal is to be thought-provoking, and respected for their intellect, not necessarily to be liked.

Mercury in Aquarius has a gift for the big picture. But true to the paradoxical Aquarian nature, it's a Mercury that can get stuck in a narrow grove of thinking, dismissive of other opinions. Theirs is a mind enamored with processes and systems, and many are drawn to science and technology. There's an element of mystery in how they arrive at conclusions. Often, they lay out facts, but as explorers of far-out mental realms, what they present resembles nothing currently in existence. Some are drawn to metaphysics, or venture into the arts. These are original thinkers with minds that are capable of doing genius things. Mercury in Aquarius follows their own inspirations to the outer limit and beyond.
Picks up on the vibrations, feelings and even thoughts of others, and seeks to connect and create through this mystical one-mind awareness. Often speaks with compassion and empathy, but is easily lost in confusion, distortions and an illusory view of what's going on.

The Piscean Mentality:

In Pisces, Mercury sees life more like an impressionistic painting than one done in the realistic style. Sounds, images, shapes, memory, psychic impressions, emotional tones -- all these are absorbed as part of an overall perception. Mercury in Pisces picks up on subtleties in the atmosphere that others might not pick up. Their outlook is dreamy, and often they appear tuned in to some distant message or inner vision.

The mind is directed by the emotions in Pisces, more than by logic. This Mercury is very sensitive to the environment, and is easily jarred by loud noises and the psychic static of crowds. Their mind is the ultimate psychic sponge, which is both a gift and a challenge. They need lots of time to reflect and unwind their thoughts, and create space to 'listen' to their own rich inner narrative.

Mercury in Pisces has a naturally artistic outlook, and is often drawn to music, theatre, visual arts, filmmaking or photography. It's a mind able to dwell fully in the imagination, and bring those visions to life in their work. There's a healing aspect to what they share, and it strikes others as divinely inspired.

This Mercury has a gentle touch socially, as well, and is often a bridge between people. They have an innate trust and readily accept what others say, and therefore can be led astray by manipulators and con artists. Such an emotionally-driven Mercury has to guard against being pulled by the heart strings to dark places. Developing the ability to discern truth from illusion, and to add logic to decision-making is sometimes a lifelong task.

Mercury in Pisces has gifts to share that elevate the experience of life to something transcendent. Theirs is a vulnerably sensitive mind, one that often seeks refuge in fantasy and "checking out" somehow (like television or drugs). When lost, this Mercury struggles with fuzzy thinking, unable to handle the details of life. They gain confidence when they find creative self-expression, and release all that's absorbed back into the world.
