As we know, Mercury (or Hermes, in the ancient Greece), well-known in Roman mythology as messenger of the gods, is associated with the principles of communication, reasoning and adaptability. This planet influences our manner of thinking and the way we express ourselves, but also rules education and transport over short distances. On the other hand, Virgo is an analytical, meticulous and practical sun sign, using critical thinking in everyday life.
