Mercury makes the jump to Sagittarius today after a longer than usual run in Scorpio. Under the influence of powerful and intense Scorpio, Mercury (mind and intellect) does not embrace compromise and tends to be somewhat vindictive where arguments and controversy are concerned. In Sagittarius, Mercury tends to be broad-minded and easier to adapt new ideas and opinions, making all kinds of conversations easier and more productive.
Mercury in Sagittarius encourages us to be more positive and think more expansively. If you’re like me, you may have been really feeling the isolation of the pandemic lately as we move into winter in the northern hemisphere. Perhaps the optimism and facility with new ideas and adventures will help to bring in new ideas for ways to maintain a healthy balance during this challenging time. Jupiter and Saturn both moving into Aquarius in a few weeks will likely complete that process, so we can get a head start now.
