Mercury stay in Sag will be a long one, entered on the 6th Nov – 11th Jan, 2018, while there will go Rx, 3rd Dec – 23rd.
Mercury’s in the opposite sign that it rules, Gemini is where Mercury works best, in Sag, the mind gets to stretch further out, has to think bigger, thoughts and logic will be touched with thoughts of hope and inspiration. It gets to weave a bigger picture to the story. Not so much looking at the details or facts, you will want to see the whole thing. So some of the facts may not stick as you are too busy, preaching about the bigger picture you want to paint. Which can be tricky at times, as you may not want to miss out on the details, as during the Rx period will be important. Best to remember this along the way.
Whats enjoyable with Mercury’s time in Sag, is fresh ideas, a new way to look at something, gaining higher knowledge or broadening your perspective on areas of life that have become too narrow. Great time to travel or go to far off places in your mind, broaden your mind with new stories, have something new to marvel at. Use this time to clear out the mind of old long-held beliefs, let something new filter in.
You communication style may turn more cheerful and optimistic, reality might just take a bit of a nose dive, as you believe that you can achieve the visionary view you have of life. You know Sag’s they are the optimistic bunch of the zodiac.
Mercury Rx will happen, you then have to go back over all of the this again and get a closer, slower, look at your faith, beliefs, hopes, attitudes and the new thoughts that have come. Pay attention to what is just too far out there, being in Sag, facts are flown out, as you are in the mix of wild enthusiasm, filled with inspiration and perhaps some exaggeration of what you thought is possible.
This may turn it around and the reality check pops in, and of course Mercury hits it up with Saturn just before Rx stationary and just after and that is a one big whoop of reality, right there, Boom!! you may have to come back to earth, instead of flying high in your mind. Use Saturn’s rules and limits to let you see how this will really work out for you, this is the framework.
