Mercury in House 9: what are Mercury and House 9?
If you have Mercury in House 9, then you are going to like to know a little about the old mythology. Back in the days, the Romans used to see Mercury as a God who personified trade and travel. The Greeks had a similar interpretation but with a different name. Hermes was the God with wings on his feet and who was the messenger carrying all the information to a point to another.
The definitions of movement and speed match with the physical conditions of the planet. Mercury is the fastest moving around the Sun and in Astrology, we see Mercury as a chance to connect our mind and reasoning with the Divine.
The influence of this planet is the spark that makes us gather knowledge. After we have it, Mercury stores the information and decodes our thoughts, transforming them into words. The impact on the way we write and speak is inevitable. And Mercury is not only about what is written or spoken, but also affects our visual communication.
House 9 is the House of the expansion of conscience. Being the ninth House, it associates with the sign Sagittarius and represents knowledge and great travels. Does it sound or does not it sound like Mercury itself?
