All About Mercury

Gemini highlights the quick thinking, communication and sometimes tricky and changeable nature of this planet that gives its name to the word mercurial. While Mercury in Gemini embodies the trickster, Mercury in Virgo embodies the crafty trader. While Mercury in an Earth Sign is less flexible than when it is in Air, with the help of the Mutable nature of Virgo, Mercury is able to adapt, repurpose and cobble together whatever it needs to solve a practical issue.
