In the ancient Greek mythology, God Hermes also known as mercury is known for his cunning and diplomatic nature.
He was so crafty, and swift in his actions and thoughts that he became the messenger of Gods responsible for trade and commerce where negotiation is required.
The wings attached to the hat and his magical sandals made him an excellent traveler who use to travel freely and fast between the worlds of mortals and divine.
God of Medicine
On the other hand, Asclepius was considered to be the Greek God of medicine and healing. He learnt the art of medicine from his father Apollo, and his mentor Chiron.
Asclepius became so popular and skilled that he developed an ability to bring the dead back to life.
Caduceus vs Rod of Asclepius
There is a great resemblance between the staff of Hermes known as Caduceus (left image) and the rod of Asclepius (right image).
Caduceus is a winged staff with two snakes wrapped around it which is mistakenly considered as a medical symbol by physicians in major parts of the world due to its adoption in the early 19th century.
Rod of Asclepius represents the true symbol of medicine because the ancient Greeks considered snakes have healing power and shredding of its skin as a symbol of fertility and rebirth.
Anyway, the characteristics of both these mythological Gods such as communication, business sense, energy, healing power and medicine completely matches with the qualities of the mercury mount in palmistry.
All these traits are closely akin to a healer.
