Horoscope Mercury in Virgo
Sense impressions never reach you till they have been interpreted. What you see, hear, smell, taste and feel is swiftly given significance before it arrives at the reacting center of the brain. You never see just a chair; you see a beautiful chair, an old chair, a charming chair, a chair that looks comfortable or uncomfortable. You never hear just a noise; before you have heard it, it has been labeled pleasant or raucous or sweet or whatever. Your senses take the impression, hold it for ransom, and say to the brain, “Name it and you can have it.” Thus you tend to card-index and catalogue every sense experience that comes to you. This leads to boredom, because pretty soon everything drops into its own niche and there is nothing new under the sun. Your pleasure in the physical world thus tends to diminish as life wears on, and through too much intellectualizing you can lose the zest for life. To get it back, try to regard things for their own sake. Remember that “a rose by any other name would smell as sweet” and that you get more fun out of a kiss if you don’t think of it as a deception of Nature to encourage reproduction. Exorcise the demon of words from the temple of nature, and in the name of simple animal enjoyment, throw away the dictionary!
You are an exacting perfectionist with a clear, logical, analytical mind and an aptitude for work that requires meticulous attention to detail and efficient organization. Well-grounded and pragmatic, you tend to develop specialized skills and technical expertise in some practical field. Knowledge, ideas, and theories don’t really interest you unless they are useful in a tangible way. You are inclined to analyze, measure, and dissect everything and to miss nuances, subtle shades of feeling and meaning. Your strengths are in your precise thinking, careful craftsmanship, and mastery of technical skills. You tend to be very good at what you do and critical of others’ work if it does not meet your high standards.
