Mercury

Mercury rules Gemini and Virgo, and its keyword is communication, both mental and physical.
It is exalted in Virgo.
Since it is placed between the Sun and the Earth, Mercury always appears to be near the Sun in the sky, and in the astrologers’ charts must fall either in the same sign as the Sun, or in the preceding or following one.
If your Sun sign is Aries, for example, Mercury will either be in Pisces, or in Taurus, or, of course, in Aries.
Mercury is one of the most sensitive planets and helps you to communicate with other people. It influences your desire for knowledge and often makes you feel either the wanderlust or a disinclination to travel.
If you had Mercury in Cancer, you are likely to be very sentimental in your responses.
