Mercury represents our rational mind and is the planet of everyday expression and communication. It signifies our curiosity and what areas of life we find mentally appealing and stimulating. It analyzes and organises and defines the way we interact with others. Mercury in your chart reveals how you get your point across and in what style.

You will look deep within yourself for answers to the questions that come up in life. Your inner feelings will strongly influence your view of the world, and you will consider your own point of view to be the most important factor. But try not to get so wrapped up in your own way of seeing the world that you cannot imagine anyone else's point of view. Being too subjective is a serious danger with this aspect. On the other hand, you will be able to communicate your ideas and feelings to others very easily, even while you are quite young. Your basic attitudes and opinions will take shape very early in life, and later it will be very difficult to change them. So, it is very important for you to be exposed to broad and sophisticated views of the world, because you will keep the ideas you learn now, even if they are narrow and intolerant. You will think about your past a great deal, and you may spend too much time wondering if it could have been different. Do not worry about this, because you only have one past, and it is pointless to think about it, except to help you deal with the present. Because you are in touch with your feelings, you can react to a situation according to your real needs, but only if you concentrate on the present and future, not the past. It may be difficult, but you should examine your thinking and never take your feelings and ideas solely at face value. Probably your beliefs are based on what your parents and family taught you instead of on your own observations.
