Scorpio, Aquarius, and Sagittarius: What’s Beneath the Surface
These mercury signs share a commonality of finding interest in peculiar things, or things that otherwise seem strange and even scary to other people. They enjoy discussing/watching conspiracy theory videos, developing theories of their own and going against traditional knowledge. They may even have been geniuses growing up in school because of how rigid and talented they are in taking different approaches to problem solving and application. They are also talented in reading other people. These signs know how people work and can read deep into other people’s body language. They also crave a solution and holding onto beliefs. Sagittarius is mutable so they are able to bulge a little, but they define themselves based on their beliefs. Scorpio and Aquarius are both fixed so they have such strong will its hard to win against these people in arguments. Underpinning quality of these signs is their penetrative mind.
Leo, Gemini, and Aries: The Joy of Talking
These mercury signs share a commonality of great communicative skills that the simple act of talking to someone comes across as an interest. Gemini is ruled by Mercury so it adheres to more of the external qualities of the planet. These people have a natural talent when it comes to words and they also tend to be over gesticulative, such as relying on their hands. Leo and Aries, both fire signs are also naturally predisposed to an enthusiastic mind and way of communication. The Sun gives Leo the glowing presence to attract people in conversation whereas Mars gives Aries the strength and harshness needed to move people into action. These signs are also quite popular among others because of how charming and enthusiastic they exude in conversation.
Libra and Capricorn: Status
These mercury signs share a commonality of exuding an authority or leadership. Libra may be more flirtatious and calming than the rigid Capricorn; although, both seem to share a relationship of using communication as a form of increasing status. Libra being ruled by Venus, is naturally predisposed to wanting a lavish and luxurious lifestyle so riches is almost destined whereas Capricorn’s main goal is to achieve the rags to riches narrative; there is always gain wtih these two signs which is why they can be rather calculating. Also, Libra being exalted by Saturn can indicate a stern Saturn presence and can be firm in aligning their ideals of equality and justice.
Virgo and Taurus: The Practical and Non-Abstract
Virgo and Taurus being both earth signs shows a similarity of practicality and adopting less intiutive forms of thinking and speaking. It is rather hard for these two signs to look deep into things. In fact, they usually agree with what’s in front of them. Also, they are grounded given the fact they are earth signs so they tend to adopt a realistic approach to things. Virgo, being ruled by Mercury harbors more of its internal properties such as organization and due to their mutable nature, they can apply different forms of approaches when it comes to thinking and problem solving whereas taurus, given they are fixed, its hard to adopt new thinking approaches–in fact, it takes a bit of practice. They can come across harsh because of how well they are with detail since they are used to seeing what’s in front of them. This can be a little daunting and even mean for other people. Because of this, they tend to be great at collecting information on others and collecting, what we would call, “receipts.”
Pisces and Cancer: Idealists and Abstract
Pisces and Cancer are whimsical and figurative. They are enriched with creativity that they can adopt really abstract forms of thinking. They are not excellent when it comes to logical reasoning and critical thinking. Especially for Pisces, a sign that denotes an almost fantasy like state its hard for people with this mercury sign to confide in traditional knowledge and also, adopt the easiest way of doing things. Both signs are entrapped with idealism, conveying hopefulness. The way they speak can almost be reassuring and nurturing, like no matter what they say it provides almost a blanket or safety net. They can also be soothing, relaxing and very intuitive. They share a similar nature with aquarius, scorpio, and sagittarius in the way they can look deep into things (especially pisces!). But what is most underpinning between cancer and pisces is how chaotic and fertile their minds are in terms of romance and poetry. Cancer, especially has a great reservoir of memories and feel attached to the past. They also have great memory storage, which is not exactly congruent with pisces. Both are great listeners and can provide you with an emotional sentimentality not found in other signs.
