Why Mercury?

  • Mercury represents cleverness. In the ancient Roman pantheon, Mercury rules over communication, swiftness, and commerce. He is related to the Greek god Hermes and the Egyptian god Thoth.

  • Mercury can take the heat; it’s the planet closest to the sun.

  • The element mercury (Hg), also known as quicksilver, is not only a¬†shining metal but also an easy-flowing liquid. Mercury has the ability to grow during times of pressure and high energy. We seek to embody these qualities at Word Mercury.
