Mercury in Virgo
Coherent, practical, and organized, this position is gifted with discernment and the ability to prioritize. If you’re feeling overwhelmed by too much information and want to bring clarity to your thought process, call on someone with Mercury in Virgo.
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Mercury is allied with Thoth, the Sacred Scribe. Virgo is allied with Nekhbet, the Crone Priestess. Nekhbet is the wise grandmother who asks if we are doing what we came here to do. If not, she encourages us to attend to whatever is in our way. When it comes to clarity of mind, you can’t ask for a better ally.
Everything has its shadow, and the shadow side of this position is a tendency to be overly critical, both of oneself and others. Perfectionism can cause anxiety and excessive worry. During this brief sojourn of Mercury in Virgo, we all have an opportunity to prioritize our thinking so we can streamline creative action and attend to our next right steps.
Mercury/Thoth will be in the emanation of Virgo/Nekhbet from August 11 until August 29/30.
