The communication planet, Mercury, rules Gemini. Its placement in your birth chart falls under one of the 12 signs of the zodiac, playing a major role in describing how you think, talk, and listen.

When conversation flows smoothly between you and another person, it demonstrates that your respective Mercurys are in compatible signs. When you find it difficult to understand someone -- no matter how much you may try -- your Mercurys are likely to be in incompatible signs.

Indeed, the small but mighty planet of Mercury wields a great deal of power! It's no secret that relationships can be made and broken based on communication. Knowing the Mercury sign of the people most important to you can help you learn how to best tune into what they're saying, as well as how to communicate in a way that they'll clearly understand you.

To offer a few examples, if someone in your life has his or her Mercury in the Earth sign of Taurus, you may want to think twice before demanding a quick response to something you ask. Otherwise, you'll likely encounter resistance on their part, since a Mercury-in-Taurus person will prefer to mull things over before forming an opinion or answering a potentially complex question. On the other hand, a Mercury-in-Gemini individual will immediately suggest a number of ideas -- maybe more than you want to hear! Those with Mercury in the Water sign of Cancer, meanwhile, will need to feel their way through what they think. And a person with Mercury in Sagittarius may be prone to speaking before thinking, as they're known for both honesty and moments of tactlessness.

Take time to learn the Mercury signs of people close to you. You'll not only improve your communication skills, but you'll also gain a deeper understanding of them!
