Mercury through the signs
Written by Alex Saba, Lusid Astrology.
Mercury is our centre for communication and intellect. Your Mercury sign is the brains behind the operation, helping your Sun pick up information and communicate his needs on his journey. When Mercury has his needs met, this can look like deep connection, mental clarity and honest communication that make you feel seen, heard and understood.
When you are in alignment with your Mercury sign’s needs, there is likely to be a burst of inspiration and focus which can support your Sun’s focus indirectly or directly.
As the mentalist in Astrology, our Mercury sign takes the wheel for your communication and learning style. Mercury in each sign offers a unique perspective on the kind of learner you are and your communication style.
When we look to Mercury we ask - How do I express what’s on my mind? What way do I prefer to learn and what tools help me along the way?
Your Mercury sign is part of your full birth chart so you will need to do a little research to figure it out using your birth date to determine what sign it's in. To explore your birth chart more, consider booking a Cosmic Fingerprint birth chart reading with Lusid Astrology - explore more here.
