Hi,

so, here's the thing.

I think I made a deal with Mercury.
I 'think' - because I am not sure he accepted, I'll know the result by end-ish of the month?
But there was a sign, that made me think he did - and I asked him around the 15th, which was a Roman holy day for Mercury - so His ears might've been pretty open then.

Been pondering to include Him in my life for quite some time now, but now is the best moment, I guess.
Concerning my daytime job changed from customer service only to selling products now (no, it is a good change, really, sounds awful, but it's good) and since I want to go on with my writing - which is communication - I could need a bit divine help.

All I found on the web was the myths of course, his attributes - caduceus, nifty sandals and hat with wings, the tortoise, the ram and the cockerel and the strawberry tree and the crocus flower as his plants.

Somewhere I've seen the lizard mentioned, and somewhere - but my memory might fail me - that almonds and bay where given as offering.

Whatever.

Please share - UPG totally welcome.
What do you offer Mercury?
What attributes do you assign to Him?

I really could do with a bit inspiration. Wink

Thanks.

Best person I know to talk to about Him is Steve (Com-W). He has been working with Him for years now.

As for attributes.

Oddly silence and music

knowledge of people - both their strengths and weaknesses

Knowledge of trends. including "this to will pass"

Give them to some good purpose?

Keep them in my wallet for 7 days. then given them to the first charity worker who'll take them.

Mmh... sounds interesting.
Mercury - esp. in Gaulish areas - was often depicted with a purse.
I think I get a money pouch on the Ren Fair this weekend, just for this purpose.

Thanks again. Smiley

One trait of his I've always found striking that isn't often emphasized is his role as a deity of trade and commerce.

Mercury is a trickster god and a god of quick thinking.  In his role as Hermes he represents maleness in much the way that Mars does (thus the word Hermaphrodite, a melding of Hermes and Aphrodite)  He is the only god aside from Pluto himself that is allowed into the underworld.
