    Question Re. Mercury exactly combust the sun and it’s relation to silence. Do you think being exactly combust the sun weakens the planet? Especially the personal planets?

    I would call that Bumese Mercury cazimi that is within 17 minutes of the Sun and therefore much strengthened.

    It’s interesting that you ask about silence. One of my favourite books about meditation was written by an Australian woman in the 1950s (I forget her name) but it is called Journey Into Burmese Silence.

    Mercury in Capricorn knows when to be silent, the weight of silence, the power of silence.
