Mercury Combust, now you see me, now “cazimi” ~ White Light Retreats
Mercury, like Venus, orbits within the earth’s orbit, or between Earth and Sun, so from our geocentric point of view they always appear relatively close together in the sky. Mercury is never more than 28 degrees from the Sun, and so the “Winged Messenger” remains archetypally the perennial close associate, side kick and brother of mighty Apollo. And the “Goddess of love” also keeps close association on the other side, never wandering further than a sidelong glance away.
