Mercury

Astronomy, Mythology, Astrology, Alchemy

March 30, 2011 ... While updating the file about planet Mercury, I discovered the Babylonians called it Nabu (sounds a lot like Nibiru) after the messenger to the gods in their mythology. Nabu is the Assyrian and Babylonian god of wisdom and writing (Thoth in Egypt). Nabu was worshipped by Babylonians as the son of Marduk - (mythological Sumerian Gods who created this reality). There is a connection here between the epitome of events (closing) of our program and Mercury. Many people await the return of Nibiru in 2011-12.

Mercury Retrograde

Retrograde and Direct Motion Wikipedia

The energies begin now so plan for it, especially with reality changing so unpredictability. Expect the unexpected and be careful what you do and say. Don't make major decisions - you'll change your mind, especially as this is the time of the year relationships end. Mercury is the God of Transportation and Communication so apply where needed.

In Astrology when planets are in their period of retrograde motion as seen from Earth, it is considered to be a time of the negative traits and a general duration of the inauspicious qualities of that planet. For example, when Mercury is in retrograde, it is considered to be a time of problems with interaction, travel and even the simple basic workings of things. It is also thought that the general averse aspects of a retrograde planetary motion carry over into the lives of the people born under them as a part of their lifetime astrological chart.




Mercury MESSENGER 2011



The MErcury Surface, Space ENvironment, GEochemistry and Ranging (MESSENGER) is a robotic American space probe. It was launched by NASA in August 2004 to study the chemical composition, geology, and the magnetic field of Mercury. It became the second mission to reach Mercury successfully and the first spacecraft to orbit Mercury. Its instruments performed well on a complex series of flybys of Earth (once), Venus (twice), and Mercury itself (three times). These allowed the craft to be slowed relative to Mercury with minimal fuel. MESSENGER successfully entered Mercury orbit on March 18, 2011. Its science instruments were activated on March 24, 2011.

First look at Mercury from orbit   MSNBC - March 29, 2011

The first image sent back to Earth from Mercury orbit shows a rayed crater known as Debussy and a smaller crater with unusual dark rays, called Matabei. The picture was transmitted to Earth by NASA's Messenger spacecraft.

Transmutations of Mercury to Gold The Alchemy Website


Mercury was known to the ancient Chinese and Hindus, and was found in Egyptian tombs that date from 1500 BC.

In China, India and Tibet, Mercury use was thought to prolong life, heal fractures, and maintain generally good health. China's first emperor, Qin Shi Huang Di was said to have been buried in a tomb that contained rivers of flowing mercury, representative of the rivers of China. He was ultimately driven insane and killed by mercury pills intended to give him eternal life.

The ancient Greeks used mercury in ointments and the Romans used it in cosmetics. By 500 BC mercury was used to make amalgams with other metals. The Indian word for alchemy is Rasavatam which means 'the way of mercury.

Alchemists often thought of Mercury as the First Matter from which all metals were formed. Different metals could be produced by varying the quality and quantity of sulfur contained within the mercury. An ability to transform mercury into any metal resulted from the essentially mercurial quality of all metals. The purest of these was gold, and mercury was required for the transmutation of base (or impure) metals into gold as was the goal of many alchemists.

Hg is the modern chemical symbol for mercury. It comes from hydrargyrum, a Latinized form of the Greek word "hydrargyros", which is a compound word meaning 'water' and 'silver' - since it is liquid, like water, and yet has a silvery metallic sheen.

The element was named after the Roman god Mercury, known for speed and mobility. It is associated with the planet Mercury.

The astrological symbol for the planet is also
one of the alchemical symbols for the metal.

Mercury is the only metal for which the alchemical
planetary name became the common name.
