Is Mercury masculine or feminine?

Mercury has neither a masculine nor a feminine energy. It is a synthesis of both energies and is generally neutral. However it can sometimes have a more masculine energy or a more feminine energy depending on the planet it contacts with.

Mercury is the planet of communication and therefore it can have different effects on people depending on how well they communicate their ideas and feelings. If someone is lacking in communication skills, then mercury in an undesirable sign for them. Otherwise, if they are good at communicating themselves successfully, then mercury being in a beneficial sign for them.

Generally speaking, if mercury is in an undesirable sign, then that person will have problems with their speech. They may have difficulty expressing themselves clearly because misunderstandings are common. They may even have problems forming complete sentences because parts of the brain associated with language come into play when mercury is in an undesirable position. However, if they have good communication skills, then perhaps learning new languages or using social media excessively would be positive activities for them. Either way, mercury having an effect on communication patterns is likely to cause problems for them.

If mercury is in a beneficial sign, then that person will have plenty to say. Their voice will be clear and understandable and others will want to hear what they have to say.

Why are Sagittarius and Mercury so compatible?

Because Mercury is an androgynous planet and Jupiter is a masculine one, the signs controlled by both celestial bodies are quite compatible. Sagittarius is interested in studying and going on travels since Jupiter reigns over philosophical pondering and grasping deeper truths. It's also the sign that houses Mercury in astronomy.

Thus, they are very well matched and their relationships tend to be versatile and exciting. Often, these pairs will travel together or meet each other through mutual friends. The facts that both planets are curious and easy-going as well as imaginative and optimistic make them perfect companions for those who want to maintain their connection even when they are separated.

In fact, there are several aspects between Mercury and Jupiter. When Mercury is conjoined (directly opposite) Jupiter in aspect, it indicates that you are looking at such a conjunction from a distance. If Mars is located between them, this combination is called malefic. However, if Venus is situated between them it becomes benefic.

When Jupiter controls Mercury it usually indicates success in life. You can use your mental capacity along with your spiritual vision to grasp important things in life. This combination also suggests good health since Mercury is considered the "prince of planets" that controls communication between our body and mind.

Is Mercury male or female?

The Sun, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn are masculine planets; Mercury and Uranus are neutral; while the Moon, Venus, Neptune, and Pluto are female planets (though Pluto is related to Mars despite its Dark Mother feminine archetype). Mercury is the least masculine of all the planets and the most feminine.

This may seem counter-intuitive since it's common knowledge that women are born with a full moon and men with a half moon, but this difference arises because women have both a masculine and feminine quality. The Moon is influenced by both the Earth and the Sun so it can be seen as having some of each qualities: feminine when in harmony with the Earth and masculine when in harmony with the Sun.

Mercury is also known as the "wandering planet" because it travels through space at a speed of 60 miles per second which makes it difficult for us to track its movement across the sky. Visually, we can see that it's always on top of something even when it's not visible, such as radio waves or hurricane winds. This idea of being on top of things has many cultural meanings including magic, technology, and commerce. Mercury is the ruler of Gemini which means it is passionate, emotional, dualistic, and curious. It also represents communication, thinking, understanding, and perception. As Mercury is part of the Chiron constellation, it can sometimes be wounded physically or emotionally.

What does "Mercury Rising" mean?

It provides overall commercial skills, although being a convertible planet, it is significantly influenced by the effect of aspects. Thus, Mercury rising indicates that one has an intelligent understanding of business practices and the ability to communicate this knowledge effectively.

Aspects are positions of the Moon or another planet across from or opposite the Sun. When aspected by the Moon, Mercury experiences changeable moods and emotions, as well as changes to communication methods. Aspect by Venus, the goddess of love, marriage, and diplomacy, leads to an interest in fine arts and culture, which can be explored through reading material such as poetry or novels. Aspecting by Mars, the warrior god, increases awareness of physical processes and how they affect us mentally and emotionally, leading to the desire to learn more about health and fitness. Aspecting by Jupiter, the king of planets, expands our view of society and others, giving rise to interests such as philosophy, religion, or social activism. Aspecting by Saturn, the ruler of endings and limitations, shows us what is essential for life and therefore drives us toward clarity and truthfulness.

In astronomy, mercury rises with the rest of the moon on the horizon just before dawn. On earth, mercury rises with the sun at approximately the same time.
