Mercury Joins the Party in Sagittarius

After an extended run in the sign in the sign of Scorpio (from September 27th to October 10th and from November 8th to November 27th due to a particularly intense Mercury retrograde), Mercury entered the sign of Sagittarius at 9:26 p.m on November 27th. This was definitely something to have gratitude for on Thanksgiving Day! It joined the Sun and Venus in Sagittarius, so we can definitely expect a time of good cheer accompanied by a lighter tone in communications and greater ease in getting unstuck. That's what I call the Power of Three - let the party begin!

Mercury did not leave the sign of Scorpio by going gently into the good night, however. Mercury in 25 degrees of Scorpio conjuncted Saturn in 26 degrees of Scorpio on November 25th. I loved what astrologer Penny Thornton said about this aspect in her weekly absolutely. com:

"...while Mercury conjoins Saturn inspiring reality checks and generating a fairly cheerless climate, the Sun is angling Neptune, interfering with our perception and blinding us to reality; either we are in Cloud Cuckoo land or in a severe trough of low pressure."

I concurred with Penny on that score and tweeted this on the 25th:

"Mercury conjunct Saturn in Scorpio today may feel like a harsh reality check but it's temporary. Any depression lifts soon."

What could make me think its effect would be temporary, especially when this aspect squared my natal Pluto in Leo? Well, first off, I knew that Mercury would be leaving Scorpio in a couple of days, but more importantly, I know that Saturn will be leaving Scorpio on December 23rd, so I know that I won't have to experience that aspect any time soon!

Mercury in a fire sign is a time of renewed energy and momentum. Sagittarius is the most future oriented of the fire signs; it loves to explore and expand. It allows freedom in the ability to see things from a broader perspective. New information becomes available and we are encouraged to adapt to that new information. Sagittarius is the mutable fire sign, so we should find it easier to literally go with the flow, share what we know and travel both physically and mentally.

Right now the Sun and Mercury in Sagittarius are transiting my second house until December 8th. I keep reading that Scorpios are going to get a break financially, so I am trying to be proactive by launching a couple of holiday promotions for my services. Check out my discounted Reiki special at:

A Reiki session can provide healing on the physical, mental and spiritual levels while balancing energies in the body and reducing stress. Who wouldn't want that for Christmas?

I am also offering a 20% discount on all of my astrological services through the month of December. Check out my astrology holiday promotion at:

One last things, folks. Mercury in Sagittarius is squaring Neptune in Pisces on November 30th, so we can expect a rather fuzzy day. Chalk it up to being a lazy Sunday. If you are of a certain age, you may vaguely recall Sunday being referred to as a "day of rest." I don't recall it ever being that restful, but it was a time when retail establishments were closed, which certainly meant you didn't have to labor going to the supermarket or the mall, let alone work in a store on a Sunday.

I hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!
