Mercury into Sagittarius

Mercury, the planet of mind and communication entered Sagittarius at 5:18 am this morning, Monday Nov 6, where it will reside until Jan 11 2018. It’s retrograde takes place in the sign from Dec 3 at 29 degrees until Dec 23, when it turns direct at 13 degrees. Here’s my take on how Mercury may express in those born with this placement
Mercury searches far and wide in Sagittarius to discover answers to the big questions, like what is the meaning of life, what is my purpose for being here, is there a God? etc. This search is typically conducted through the study of literature, philosophy and religion, or travel to sacred sites and ‘power spots’ in distant lands, or simply through contemplation and meditation. Those with this placement are generally avid readers and travelers for sheer pleasure too. Intellectually, their gifts are for synthesis and overview rather than detailed analysis, and they are much given to prophecy and story-telling where they rarely let a mere fact stand in the way of a good story. Their communication style is humorous, opinionated and loquacious, and many are amateur, if not professional comedians, ‘shock jocks’, media commentators, and sporting pundits. Teaching, documentary making, journalism and writing are other favoured vocational pursuits, whilst in business, their innate optimism and ‘gift of the gab’ suits them to marketing, sales, gambling and share trading. Shortcomings include a tendency to exaggerate, being sloppy on detail, promising more than they deliver, and not practicing what they preach.
