What to Stream on HBO Max Based on Your Mercury Sign

in partnership with HBO Max

What’s your Mercury sign? The buzzy planet of socializing and communication says so much about what you stream and who you bond with.

Here at Astrostyle, our team meetings often turn to talk of our favorite series and shows. Since we’re all working remotely, the characters, plot lines and action create connective tissue, just like our zodiac signs do. As spring begins, our social sides are blossoming. As such, the characters we invest in through watching shows and series are like the common friends of our crew. And this got us thinking about how everyone’s Mercury sign figured in.

We’ve extensively analyzed female friendship series, like HBO Originals Sex and The City, Girls and Insecure. Recently, we’ve been exploring the connection between Mercury and the characters each of us vibes with. Why do some of us feel soothed by the relatable messiness of Issa and Hannah while others live for the shameless ambition of Molly and Marnie? 

As a result, we took a peek at our Mercury signs for clues. You can find yours too, using our Mercury Sign Calculator.  Mercury’s placement in the zodiac at your time of birth provides fascinating insight into: 

  • What you stream, read, converse about on social media and text to your friends 
  • What characters you connect to
  • The storylines that move you
  • The narratives you learn from and relate to

How Mercury shapes current trends:

What’s trending? Mercury’s current station in the sky also plays a role in shaping cultural conversations that we’re all having in any given moment. This buzzy planet spends an average of three weeks in each zodiac sign, coloring our collective interests accordingly. During its notorious retrograde periods, Mercury hovers in one sign (sometimes two) for over two months, churning up scandalous headlines and #BTS gossip…AKA the stuff that biopics are made of!
