Mercury in Sagittarius is nearly upon us. Visual: After weeks of trekking through the Plutonic jungle of Mercury in Scorpio, raiding your own tombs, and confronting spectral monsters of your psyche, the terrain opens up.
Yes, Mercury in Scorpio is fantastic but nine and a half weeks of it? Too damn much. Of course, it worked for psychological growth and rousing or reanimating gritty resolve that will be useful for the next several weeks of Saturn conjunct Pluto/Eclipse Season.
But the trek featured treacherous swamps and cryptic animosity, the usual Scorpionic turf rendered more oppressive by Pluto’s proximity to Saturn. They are strengthening one another.
If you tote up the last nearly ten weeks, you may be surprised by just how much has changed.
As I write this, Mercury – the Magician – is five hours off being in Sagittarius. Consciousness and energy-wise, it is about to feel as if you’re emerging from the valley of lost temples and deep mysterious pools of memory or emotion into high mountain paddocks.
Keep a grip on whatever you got from the Mercury in Scorpio trip – it is useful to conceive of it as a literal talisman – but lengthen your stride as you feel the sunlight and air.
Anticipate an omen or revelation within 48 hours of Mercury in Sagittarius, meaningful and so multi-layered or nuanced that only you get it.
Thoughts? How was your trek experience?
