Mercury is called the first of the celestial Gods, the god Hermes… initiating men into Magic (and ancient word meaning “manifestation).” Mercury is Mithra, Wisdom, Buddhi (4th plane of reason Enlightenment, “reawakening” in the Divine Science (Ageless wisdom). The Aryan (5th) Race is born under Mercury. Mercury is the elder broth to Earth. Mercury receives seven times more light than any other planet.Mercury represents the Mind, which is the illuminating principle (Mercury “lights up” our mind with information). In Gemini (Mercury as personality ruler), Mercury provides us with information and the ability to disperse that information. In Virgo, Mercury also as personality ruler, Mercury allows us to organize our thought and data and to begin the process of discrimination. In Scorpio, as Hierarchical ruler, Mercury works within groups, opens the door from knowledge (abstract mind) into the world of intuition (Buddhi, 4th plane, pure reason, love/wisdom).
