To calculate Mercury's position, please enter your date of birth below
Mercury is the closest planet to the sun and the smallest of the planets in the solar system. Located between the Earth and the sun (like Venus), Mercury is never far from our sun: it can only be in the same sign or one of the two neighboring signs.
In astrology, Mercury symbolizes intellect, communication, exchange, and mobility. The sign in which it is placed at birth determines our mentality, our way of thinking, and the type of exchanges one has with others.
The house in which it is located indicates in which field of predilection one develops their experiences and the capacity to connect the facts. It also indicates how one learns and what are our tastes in terms of contacts and exchanges.
Mercury induces the art of establishing relationships with others and exchanges. It also evokes freedom, independence, ease, flexibility, interpersonal skills, and liveliness. It expresses activity, the ability to take advantage of situations, and the taste for change. It says a lot about the art of putting yourself in the spotlight, pleasing, having fun, and astonishing. However, Mercury does not just boast about your interpersonal skills. It also highlights your little flaws. It is thanks to Mercury that you can discover if you are unstable, a little superficial, or that sometimes you lack scruples. Your natal Mercury tells you a lot about your intellectual openness, your relationship skills, and your understanding of situations. If you have Mercury in Cancer, you do not like to find yourself in perilous situations.
On the other hand, if you have Mercury in Aries, you love this kind of situation, and you know what to do. If you have Mercury in Taurus, you can not stand to be wrong, and it puts you in a bad mood. The house in which Mercury is located indicates in which area it expresses its full potential. If you have Mercury in Gemini in House 3, you love to communicate by sending messages to everyone. But if your natal Mercury is in Capricorn and in house 12, you stay behind. You do not like to speak, especially to say banalities. If you have Mercury in Aquarius, you are a free spirit who refuses any moral constraint. So, find out, without further delay, in what sign and in which house is your native Mercury.
