MERCURY CONJUNCT JUPITER: CAN WE BE FRIENDS?

EYE ON TH SKY: MERCURY CONJUNCT JUPITER OCT 17-18TH

Mercury is in a planetary war with Jupiter in Libra on Oct 17-18 and is Mercury is losing the war.  The two planets  are actually great enemies and this conjunction and if you have this in your chart, it can  be good for writing and thinking clearly but it for Virgo, Pisces, Gemini and Sag. rising signs, it can lead to very complex relationship problems centered around the challenge of idealism with of Jupiter  and the practical and critical and biting nature of  Mercury.

It is a good transit for business as Mercury is the significator for business and Jupiter expands it. It also can lead to broadened and deep comprehension of any issue you are dealing with.   Still, when they are are close Oct. 17-18 , you might get carried away by enthusiasm and doing too many things and being too critical or argumentative and getting into relationship squabbles.  Be more patient and accepting of others and less hard on yourself.

Mercury/Jupiter conjunctions at their worse can lead to a “Pollyanna” attitude where one missed great opportunities for quick gains or gets caught up in lazy thinking. As the planets separate, it will support publishing seminars, music, dance, childhood education, speaking and counseling.

Mercury stays in Libra with Jupiter until Oct. 31st but the max. impact of the transit will be on Wednesday, ruled by Mercury when it is losing the planetary war.

Have a great day!
