Continuing with the Almanac's series on the planetary energies and the days of the week, here is the wisdom for Wednesday:
Wednesday: Day of Mercury
Mercury is the planet of communication. Mythologically it’s linked to all messenger deities like Hermes, Iris, Hanuman, and trickster archetypes. The Roman god Mercury was said to protect travelers, merchants, gamblers, and thieves. Mercury is sometimes associated with luck. Mercurial energy can be quick and light, and generally rules the intellect. Mercury not only delivered messages, but also guided souls to the underworld; he was a god of magic, boundaries, and journeys. Some link him to the Egyptian god Thoth who ruled astrology, philosophy, astronomy, and science.
