Mercury's orbit around the sun

Mercury is so close to the sun that it is only rarely visible to the naked eye shortly before sunrise in the east or shortly after sunset in the west. Its orbital frequency is 1 time per 87.969 days, which is 30 octaves higher than a tone frequency of 141.27 Hz. The keynote is one or two octaves higher for small singing bowls and one octave lower for large singing bowls. The octave analogue colour is blue-green.

Mythology and effect

In the mythology of the ancient Romans, Mercurius, and as Hermes among the Greeks, was the messenger who brought the intellect sent by the gods to mankind. He stood for the art of oratory and protected travelers, art dealers, merchants, but also thieves. The Celts and Germanic tribes also worshipped Mercury. The sound of Mercury promotes the speech center and the communicative-intellectual principle and finds resonance in the throat chakra Vishudda.
