Sebastian Domaschke - The Seven Planets
The third sheet is dedicated to planet Mercury, the ruler of Gemini and Virgo. Based on Greek mythology, Mercury is represented by Hermes, the fleet-footed emissary and messenger of the gods. Mercury is known as the planet of logic and communication. While Gemini is the sign of mental im- and expression, underlining the constant flexibility of thought, Virgo’s key aspects on the other hand hold more of an analytical and reasonable side. Hermes, being the god of travelers and merchants, is attributed with a satchel and a winged shoe. His main symbol remains the caduceus, an icon for the spinal column and ascending energy towards the spirit. Matching Gemini, the marguerite is painted as associated flower.
