Let’s Have A Chat... Mercury Signs & Storytelling
I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time so I’m glad that I’ve finally managed to get off of my lazy ass and actually make some content for a change! Some of this stuff is a little cringe and hopefully no one gets offended but if you do, sorry in advance I guess lol. I’ve written “mercury” so much, I’m not even sure if it’s a real word anymore. Enjoy xo
Aries Mercury: they tend to get right to the point when they tell people stories. They are probably the least likely to unnecessarily drag the process out. They just want you to know the important information and that’s that. they really get into whatever emotion they were feeling at the time that the experience happened. For example, if they were very angry during the encounter, they’re likely to appear that way when they retell it to others.
Taurus Mercury: Unlike the Aries mercury, they prefer to take their sweet time when recounting events. For them, it’s more about making sure that they don’t miss anything that they feel is crucial to really understand what they went through in that experience. They can be unaware of other’s time and that’s why they’re not likely to get into a lot of stories unless others ask them about particular situations. They don’t want to burden anyone.
Gemini Mercury: It’s very difficult for them to stay on track when they tell stories. They jump around from thought to thought and suddenly, they’ll forget that they were even telling a story in the first place. For them, getting distracted is a common theme. When they can actually stick to the topic at hand, they make some of the most entertaining and hilarious storytellers out there.
Cancer Mercury: They tend to have a lot of stories but that doesn’t mean that they share them all. However, when they do, they have the power to make everyone in the room feel what they were feeling in that moment. They can get into a bad habit of not giving enough at times in fear of getting too “into their feelings.” This results in two types of cancer mercuries: the ones that put their all into their stories and the ones that keep their walls up all the way through.
Leo Mercury: These individuals have a way of drawing attention to themselves, especially when they get into stories about their own lives. Their larger than life facial expressions and hand movements add to whatever they have to say. They tend to exaggerate and dramatize situations in order to make their tales appear more interesting.
Virgo Mercury: Mercury is at home in Virgo, as is the case with Gemini. However, their ways of expressing themselves couldn’t be more different. Virgo mercury natives love getting into the details of their stories; what was she wearing? What time was it? They believe that all of these aspects are crucial to their stories. Their analytical way of speaking can either intrigue listeners or put them to sleep.
Libra Mercury: These individuals can make every story that they tell sound beautiful and worth listening to, even if they’re just talking about their uneventful day. They have a knack for relating to others, and that is what makes them great storytellers. However, they tend to mix up events and details and they may change aspects of their stories to make themselves/others look better.
Scorpio Mercury: If you’re not a ride or die, you shouldn’t expect to get any juicy stories out of these folks. However, if you are, you’re in for a treat. In terms of storytelling, Scorpio mercuries are pretty savage. They tell it like it is and they don’t hold back anything. I’ve noticed that sometimes they can “test” people by observing other’s reactions to their stories. They love to read body language and if they notice that something is off with yours, you may not be getting too many more stories in the future.
Sagittarius Mercury: They’re really chill storytellers, no fuss involved. But unlike the Virgo mercury, Sagittarius mercuries prefer to focus on the big picture when telling stories. Because of this, they can leave out important details. However, they are more interested in the philosophical aspects behind the stories that they tell. What should have been a 5 minute long story can very quickly turn into why we should all live our lives to the fullest because YOLO. (I hate that meme but it’s relevant in this case… RIP my credibility)
Capricorn Mercury: They have that dry sense of humor that never fails to make those around them laugh. Capricorn mercuries don’t even have to try, they are just naturally funny individuals. Whenever they tell a story, their words are drenched in sarcasm and just a tad bit of self-depreciation. One downside is how critical they can get, not only of themselves, but of others as well. Because they are all about self-improvement, their stories can turn into epiphanies regarding whatever situation they were in.
Aquarius Mercury: They don’t just tell any stories. They tell the weirdest, most outlandish stories you’ll ever hear in your life. The Aquarius mercury really doesn’t have any shame when it comes to talking about… well, anything. The taboos of life come alive with the words that they weave. They want to be known as exactly that: the person that has the insane stories about having sex on their neighbors’ trampoline (or whatever it is that you guys get up to).
Pisces Mercury: Like the fish that represents them, they swim around… the point of their stories, that is. They’re that friend that’ll be like “oh shit… what was I talking about?” It’s like they need a GPS to direct them on where to go with their stories because they tend to either ramble or start talking about something else completely. However, they’re very good at making you feel like you are actually there in that moment with them. They have such a way with words and a conversation with them often makes you feel like you’ve entered another realm.
