Our thought process becomes more open-minded when Mercury makes it’s journey through Sagittarius from November 20th to December 9th. The desire to learn and explore is heightened when the god of communication combines forces with the zodiac’s favorite optimist. We all know Sagittarius has a propensity for tall tales (there’s nothing wrong with that!) but we definitely have to make sure that we get all of our facts straight and research before we enthusiastically share what we’ve learned and what we think we know. Our friendly centaur can sometimes fabricate stories; just make sure that wishful thinking doesn’t take the place of truth.
Mercury in Sagittarius expresses itself openly and honestly; bluntness is one of Sagittarius’ signature personality traits. Telling it like it is and being direct will be coloring our conversations and interactions with others. Mercury in Sagittarius has a knack for encouraging and positive thinking. Just don’t go overboard.
Mercury conjuncts Saturn on November 24th making room for a more disciplined and cautious approach to communication. Saturn’s structured approach will certainly curb Sagittarius’ foot-in-mouth syndrome! Mercury/Saturn aspects can also point to a good memory and ease in retaining information; perfect for focused metal pursuits
Mercury squares Neptune in Pisces the following day, on November 25th. Sagittarius and Pisces have quite a bit in common believe it or not, even though the energies are expressed differently. Pisces traditional ruler, Jupiter, shares rulership with Sagittarius; optimism and looking at the world through rose-colored glasses as well as strong spiritual/philosophical beliefs are prominent in both signs. While idealism is a wonderful trait to have, denial isn’t. Neptune’s foggy nature may make it a bit more challenging to process information. Be on the lookout for communication being misconstrued and projection during this period. If it sounds too good to be true? It more than likely is.
On December 1st Mercury trines Uranus in Aries; thinking is lightening quick, filled with inspiration, and original ideas reign supreme. Feeling high-strung and impulsive can happen with Mercury/Uranus aspects. Ideas come to us so vibrantly and quickly that we may get frustrated when others can’t catch up. This is the perfect time for eclectic creativity and eccentric expression. Now is not the time to play it safe!
