With Mercury barely moving lately and now going retrograde, it seems a good time to look back over what we’ve learned about Mercury. It turns out to be as much of a theme on Skywriter as Pluto or Neptune—though it’s usually more fun.
We started with a test to measure how important Mercury is in your chart, then opened up a forum for readers to ask questions any questions they wanted to about Mercury, Gemini, and the 3rd house. Then, as we explored Mercury’s aspects, readers gave details about how they worked on a variety of levels.
For students, here’s a list of links to over 30 articles about Mercury and related series on thinking and communication.
