EYE ON THE SKY: MERCURY IN TRANSITION
Mercury is at the end of the sign of Scorpio the next few days getting ready to go into Sagittarius on Friday and moving toward conjunction with Saturn into Thursday, Nov. 28th. This Wednesday/Thursday, Mercury it is in the Scoprio gandanta (Scorpio 27.00-30.00) known as the drowning area of the stinger’s tail where deep psychological and emotional rumbling can well up. Here for Mercury, poor judgment is a problem so with today being ruled by Mercury, you have to careful about decision making particularly if you are Gemini or Virgo rising.
Friday, Mercury goes into Sagittarius and 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.
Mercury conjuct Saturn at its best can make your critical faculty sharp and you can see the flaws in others arguments and your own and it can develop deep intellectual precision if you have to do detailed work like computer programming however planning may be marred by extreme caution and frustration. The Mercury direct conjunction with Saturn on Nov. 28th is better than the retrograde conjunction which happens again on Dec. 6th and then repeats again Jan. 13th.
At its worst, the Mercury/Saturn conjunction will slow down writing and may make it difficult to concentrate or communicate. Make sure the computer problems are taken care of early with back-ups. This conjunction teaches patience around communication and err on being redundant as people are less likely to get what are trying to communicate so slow down and write it carefully as the planets will not be supporting particularly if you have a natal chart conjunction of Mercury and Saturn.
The retrograde does not start until Dec. 3rd and everyone knows about Mercury retrograde and we will write more about it next week. Shares of stock are ruled by Mercury and also stock brokers so we think that end of the year profit-taking will hit the stock market with this conjunction and retrograde action.
