About this time of year the “Buddha”, or “enlightened one” comes to visit us. How is that possible? The sanskrit name of the planet Mercury is “Buddha”. Mercury is the intellect. When Mercury goes into the sign of Virgo each year, it is empowered to shine more than any other sign that it visits. It can be a great opportunity for us when a planet moves into the sign of exaltation, as it brings forth the very best qualities that planet has to offer.
From September 2-22 Mercury will be in the sign of Virgo. This is great for communication, technology, high mental acuity and even spirituality. Often people who are intellectually gifted have Mercury in Virgo in their birth charts. The interesting thing is that each planet has one degree in the sign where in “deep exaltation” or the most inspired place. For Mercury that is 15 degrees of Virgo and we will all experience that one Sept. 11, 2020. Our awareness of it can bring about attract more grace from the planet at that time as we are tuning in.
