The Mount Of Mercury (negative)

This Mount may be considered negative when the persons are born between

August 21st and September 20th, and until the 27th, but these last seven

days of this period are not so marked, but take more from the

characteristics of the incoming sign.

People belonging to this negative type of the Mount of Mercury have all

the good points of the positive class, and even some added in their

favour. For example, they stick longer and with more continuity to

whatever study or career they adopt. They have hardly the quickness or

the brilliancy of the first type, but they have a more solid, plodding

course of action, and as a general rule they make more out of their

change their religious views half way through life, or from the most

conventional suddenly become the reverse. In the same way women who have

commenced their career by leading unconventional lives, may just as

suddenly become religious and enter some extremely severe order or


Again, as in the positive type, it is the Line of Head that must be

carefully considered if one should endeavour to form an estimate of what

they will eventually become.

If it be clear and straight, their best qualities will, as a rule, come

to their rescue; but if weak or poorly marked, it is more than likely,

especially with this class, that the evil side of the nature will in the

end predominate.
