A strong Mercury will pass very close to the Sun as its orbit carries it between the Sun and Earth. Spiritually, Mercury carries the messages between the soul and the brain and establishes accurate relations between the lower self and the higher self. It is, therefore, the Illumined Mind, relating soul and personality. Yellow is a color of intellect and clarity. Wear yellow when you’re having a fuzzy-minded spell. Mercury’s attention is attracted to yellow, and offers clarity in response to it.
Mercury’s close orbit to the Sun also brings a good scenario for sharing. Today, try talking about your ideas and your feelings, and encourage others to share theirs. Often in talking with someone you each gain a different perspective that can help you both look at things in a different way or find solutions. Before you can do anything else, you have to recognize and accept that you are going to have feelings and there is nothing wrong with that. Feelings are not right or wrong, they just exist. Be gentle with yourself and don’t get too upset if you are struggling with expressing your feelings. Believe that your feelings matter to other people. Surround yourself with trusted and positive people. As social humans, we tend to match the tone of the situation. If you are with people speaking negatively about others, you might be inclined to join in the negativity. Conversely, if you surround yourself with positivity, you will thrive and feel nurtured. The friends with whom you choose to surround yourself will provide the environment in which you either succeed or do not.
