EYE ON THE SKY: MERCURY IN TRANSITION
Mercury is in Sagittarius moving toward conjunction with Saturn into Thursday, Nov. 28th. . Here for Mercury, poor judgment is a problem so with today being ruled by Mercury, you have to be careful about decision making particularly if you are Gemini or Virgo rising.
Mercury is in the Mula gandanta (Sagittarius 0-3) until Monday the 27th where the haunting from the past beckon us to let go of difficult karma and be patient. Mercury gets conjunct Saturn on Nov 28th at 1:58 am EST and does not get very far past Saturn as it prepared to go retrograde on Dec. 3rd until Dec. 22nd.
This upcoming Mercury retrograde may seem challenging because it is very close to Saturn until it retrogrades back into Scorpio and the gandanta area Dec. 11th and stays in the gandanta area until Dec. 13th. Hence from Nov. 22-Dec. 13th, Mercury is fairly troubled emotionally dealing with past karma and emotional churnings. This will impact Gemini and Virgo most or of you have planets in the 27 Scorpio to 5 degree Sagittarius area.
Mula consists of nine stars at the end of Scorpio and is the place of the center of the galaxy which Western Astrologers are fond of calling the Galactic Center as that wonderful part of the sky that looks like a white river in the night sky. Mula means “root” or “the center” and people who have a sun, moon or ascendent lord in this constellation are very direct and do not like to beat around the bush. This is the core of the galaxy and it is ruled by Ketu who wants to get to the core of everything: hidden motives, events, core roots. Ketu is connected to past lives and Mula wants to tie up all the talents from one’s past lives and bring them together. It seeks deeply for the truth of existence.
If you have Mercury retrograde in your natal chart, it can make you more intuitive people and reverses Mercury’s normal logical mind. This may be triggered in transit for some.
Remember with the Saturn conjunction and the retrograde starting Dec. 3rd, be redundant about communications as emails and phone messages may get lost; back up computers; be patient that things may take more time or that people may not understand you.
Mercury retro is good for Geminis and Virgos as it strengthens their rising sign and Taurus rising may do better with as it owns the 2nd 5th house. Cancers have the most difficult time with it as Mercury owns the 12th house.
Be patient Nov. 29-30th as Mercury is very close to Saturn and Mars is weak so be careful and focused in driving and not letting your mind take over and keeping you out of the action of the present moment. Energy may not be there to push the envelope the next few days for getting a lot of writing done but if it does happen it can be deep and profound. . The cobra pose is good for balancing Mercury and the shoulder stand can sort out a confused mind so those may help the next few days.
