The Houses lend a LAYER of the sign that rules that house. I hope you are following me. For example, I have Mercury in Gemini in the Ninth house, which has the sign of Sagittarius on the cusp. Hence, I have traits of the sign of Sagittarius in the way I THINK and COMMUNICATE. I can relate to the sign of Sagittarius and feel I have a “vibe” of Sagittarius.
I have a stellium in the 9th House of the Sun, Venus, Mercury and the South Node, so it is not only Mercury which resides in the Ninth House. Hence the “Sagittarius vibe” will be stronger than if my ONLY Ninth House planet was Mercury, obviously. However, we are here to talk about the House of Mercury and how that affects you. Onto the article.
