Mercury in Sagittarius conjunts Saturn in Sagittarius.
In the early hours of this morning, a new cycle begins between Mercury and Saturn join together as they bring your attention to conversations, effort and work. This means we are getting in a serious committal frame of mind. Both planets are in the last degrees of Sagittarius, which means we are being asked to look at very significant issues from the perspective of our highest understanding. We see Mercury turning retrograde on Sunday, and then we see this aspect between them both happen again on January 13th 2018. During this time we are being asked and been given time to contemplate the serious intent involved in regards to our lives, work and life lessons.
Saturn enters Capricorn on December 20th, 2017. This means we will be called to stabilize our thinking, really focus and get clear on what direction you want to go in regards to your work, growth, and your greater understanding of yourself and the world.When they join together in January, they’ll be in the early degrees of Capricorn and asking that we go to a deeper place of responsibility and integrity!
Mercury represents our rational mind, communication and our everyday expression. If you have your birth chart yo can see where Mercury sits in to have a deeper understanding of what makes you curious, and what areas of life mentally appeal and stimulate you. Mercury in your chart reveals how you get your point across and in what style. Saturn is the Master planet, that is the teacher of life lessons and karma! When these two form a conjunction it shows up in our life areas that require responsibility, contemplative, and seriousness. This aspect activates our logical minds, we will seek a higher meaning and information and wont worry our time on superficial matters. We are goal orientated and focus on realistic outcomes instead of fanciful dreams with this planetary aspect. However this aspect’s shadow side, we can be over focused and obsessed with the detail, work and the bigger picture. We become OCD and overlooking the effect we have on others in regards to our actions in reaching these goals. We get hung up on making mistakes or failing! During this period try to look at the bright side when things don’t work out and learn to laugh at your own mistakes and take some time out to laugh and enjoy life. Don’t become to over focused and obsessed on the big picture that you lose sight on why you begun it in the first place!
