Planet – Mercury

Freedom, variety, balance, sharp minds, business skill, good speakers.

Ruled by Mercury, the planet of intellect, Fives are the witty, quick thinkers of the bunch. Known for using their rational and analytical abilities to achieve their material desires. Excellent as traders and similar professions where success depends on quick decisions.

Since the mind is always occupied, thinking of the next thing to focus on, patience can wear thin with Fives. They are not comfortable waiting around aimlessly, always needing a practical outlet for their thoughts. Always on the lookout for a change, to fuel their need for constant mental stimulation – this can be positive or negative.

Freedom is very important for the Mercury ruled. Freedom to think, to travel, to change direction, these people feel stagnant if they are in one place for too long. This quality does make them adaptable and versatile.

Mercury is the planet of communication, which is reflected in their natural ability to speak with finesse and charm.
