“Hermes the god is the herald who carries messages from the gods to humankind. In psychological alchemy, Mercurius is that part of our psyche through which insight and knowledge come from the “higher” (divine, transpersonal) realms to the human, personal realms. He is the prince who awakens Sleeping Beauty; he is the archetype of the Awakener.”
—   Ralph Metzner, in The Unfolding Self: Varieties of Transformative Experience
