Mercury in Virgo

Think long and hard as Mercury transits ever-analytical Virgo

Mercury, the planet of communication, has two home signs: Gemini and Virgo. Gemini represents the objective airy side of thought, while Virgo is the practical, earthy side. So when Mercury moves into Virgo on August 7, 2015, we can expect a time when thought will most likely to be used with efficiency and conversation grounded in reality.

A planet is considered to be strong when in its home sign, one which it is said to rule. This helps direct and refine its energies to higher levels of purity and power. Mercury in Virgo is, therefore, a strong period in which to analyze and criticize with great precision.

Taken to its extremes, however, this can become a narrowness of thought that kills imagination and abstraction. Mercury in Virgo often works best after original ideas are born in rough form that can then be polished and refined.

Those born with Mercury in Virgo usually have very sharp minds that readily comprehend complex patterns and fine details. Success, though, comes when this narrow view is balanced with awareness of the big picture and higher orders of reality. The best thinkers are able to move comfortably among various perspectives to give the widest understanding possible.

Those born with Mercury in Virgo include the highly regarded basketball coach Phil Jackson, law professor Alan Dershowitz, Lyndon Johnson, Yasser Arafat, writers H.P. Lovecraft and Truman Capote, astronaut Neil Armstrong, chef Julia Child and spiritual teacher Sri Aurobindo.

The world of music offers composers Claude Debussy and George Gershwin, and singers Bobby Short, Whitney Houston and Madonna. Acting Mercury in Virgos include Dustin Hoffman, Peter O'Toole, Sean Connery, Ingrid Bergman, Melanie Griffith, Steve Martin, Michael Douglas, Chevy Chase, Lucille Ball and Mae West.

That is, it exists in the same corner of the same universe, but is so remote as virtually not to be a relationship at all. escort beirut

To James: Mercury, which rules both Gemini and Virgo will often attract Mercury in Virgo because of the mental connection you automatically have through the Mercury sign of Gemini. I'm the opposite, attracting a number of people with Mercury in Gemini.

Just a note, with this placement, is that they tend to be very good problem solvers and if you have Venus in Virgo also it gives the mind an artistic focus. Mercury in Leo is also a good placement for creativity especially if you happen to have a Virgo sun.
