About Mercury

Mercury is one of the key planets in astrological interpretation, and it holds a special place in shaping an individual’s personality, communication style, and thought processes.

In simple terms, Mercury is associated with the way you think, speak, and process information.

Let’s delve into this with a gentle and caring approach.


Podcast Episodes

Listen to our latest podcast episodes and learn about the planet MERCURY and how you can interpret it in your charts.

In these episode,s Alison and Arwynne discuss all about Mercury in your chart.

They share some keywords and how this personal planet expresses itself in each sign and house.


Mercury is often described as the planet of communication and intellect.

It influences how we express ourselves, how we learn, and how we perceive the world around us.

Imagine Mercury as the cosmic messenger, delivering the thoughts and ideas from the depths of your mind to the outside world.

Communicates and Learns

Mercury’s position in your birth chart plays a significant role in shaping your communication style and learning preferences.

It affects how you process information, make decisions, and interact with others.

If Mercury is strong in your chart, you may find it easier to convey your artistic ideas and connect with people who share your creative passions.

On the other hand, if Mercury is challenged, you might face hurdles in effective communication, which can be a valuable area for personal growth in your artistic pursuits.


The zodiac sign in which Mercury resides in your birth chart adds another layer of complexity.

Each sign bestows certain characteristics and qualities upon Mercury.

For instance, if Mercury is in a fiery sign like Aries, you might have an energetic and assertive way of expressing your artistic ideas.

If it’s in a watery sign like Pisces, your art could be deeply intuitive and emotionally charged.


Furthermore, the house placement of Mercury in your chart determines the specific areas of life where you channel your creative and communicative energies.

If Mercury is in the 5th house, which is traditionally associated with creativity, your artistic endeavors are likely to be a significant part of your life and identity.


Mercury’s aspects to other planets in your chart also influence your artistic journey.

Positive aspects like trines and sextiles can enhance your ability to communicate and create, while challenging aspects like squares and oppositions may require extra effort in order to harmonize your artistic expression with your inner self.
