Mercury in House 11 is all about the future, but first we need to go back to the past to begin explaining what Mercury is. In the old mythology, The Romans believed that Mercury was a symbol of trade and travel. For The Greeks, Mercury was the God Hermes, who used to take messages and information through the sky using his own wings on his feet.
The physical conditions of the planet match the definitions of movement and speed. After all, Mercury is the fastest moving around the Sun. In Astrological terms, we say that the influence of Mercury is an opportunity to connect our mind with the Divine.
Mercury provokes the impulse to gather knowledge. After we got it, Mercury helps us to store what we have learned and decode our thoughts, transforming them into words. The impact on the way we speak and write is strong. And there is more, Mercury is not only about what is spoken or written, but also affects our visual communication.
House 11 is the House of the collective. Being the eleventh House, it associates with the sign Aquarius and the element air. It represents the possibility of integrating ourselves to something bigger than our own ego and image, themes so important in the previous House 10.
All the astrological Houses can shelter more than one planet or be empty. Having Mercury in House 11 tells that you value your independence and humanitarian issues.
