Mercury enters Sagittarius at 1:24 am EST. Communication turns into larger as curiosity and beliefs develop. Statements are sweeping and sometimes convincing- it is simpler to inform a persuasive story once you skip over the small print.
This planet/signal combo is the preacher, trainer and salesperson. Open-mindedness is emphasised as is talking from a spot of perception relatively than logic. That is how we be taught new issues (initially)-the overseas idea, the sense of what is proper and fallacious, the large image. Mercury in Sag shouldn’t be essentially false nevertheless it’s extra of a place to begin on the journey to the reality relatively than the ultimate reply. You begin large after which zoom in on key information (later). This leaves room for grand ideas and optimism for the longer term which might usually be starved of gas if extreme give attention to one factor continued. This transit may be inspirational and uplifting. It could additionally open the best way for refreshingly trustworthy and typically humorous phrases.
The draw back to that is the endless gross sales pitch, the empty promise, the fanatical sermon that sweeps everybody up in a blazing preferrred with zero proof. Phrases may be artless, awkward and even hurtful as freedom of speech is valued over empathy.
Upon entry to this signal Mercury is straight away met by a restrictive sq. to Saturn in Pisces. So straight away the large thought is censored and the hopeful outlook dimmed. It’s a must to show it or you possibly can’t communicate brazenly or the lesson is harsh. There is a cause you are being blocked and perhaps your process includes talking out a couple of sacrifice or concern (this would possibly not be simple). Or, perhaps you are meant to cease and pay attention after which reply with care. Is that this censorship or worthwhile, enforced focus?
Additionally as we speak, Jupiter (ruler of Sagittarius) Rx in Taurus trines Juno in Virgo (dominated by Mercury) at 9 deg. The calibrated settlement expands, nevertheless it does so in a cautious, sensible method. A contract that is based mostly on enchancment or doing issues the precise approach delivers as a result of the companions share related beliefs about what’s right, what’s worthwhile and what an enchancment seems to be like. Paperwork or discussions proceed easily.
Sure, Mercury is squaring Saturn however this trine says that slowing down is an effective thing- Jupiter retrograde is concentrated progress and it is all taking place in deliberate Earth indicators so the contract yields tangible advantages.
Be aware that Mercury will briefly return to Sag from Dec twenty third to Jan thirteenth attributable to its Rx in Capricorn (it’ll station direct at 22 deg Sagittarius on Jan 1st, 2024).
