Mercury sextile Saturn

When Mercury sextiles Saturn (at least twice a year), you're ready to cut to the chase, get down to business & accomplish something useful. Given the tar pit of 2020, this drive may be especially urgent, a last ditch effort to make something happen in your public life, so the year won't have been a total loss. That sober, critical judgment spurs your resolve.

If nothing else, you want to pull some plans together & get a head-start on next year's agenda. Whatever awaits in 2021 has to be a giant leap over the stagnation & mess of 2020, where absolutely nothing went well or stayed on schedule. So with that background music, you'll take yourself in hand, organize your ideas -- & salvage something from this miserable experience.

Mercury Sextile Saturn

When Mercury sextiles Saturn, it's possible to be overly cautious. Depending on what you're coping with though, "being too careful" may not even be possible. Extreme situations call for extreme measures & clear, informed, logical thinking is hardly a liability. Mercury sextile Saturn isn't rigid or backward ... the way harsh angles to Saturn would be. But it doesn't like to "think outside the box" without very good evidence.

However, it's an excellent time to study & learn. You retain information. You rely on experts. You lay a solid foundation for your own ideas & thoughts. You do plenty of research & survey the established thinking on the topic. What you become in the process is your own brand of expert. This kind of self-education means you'll know what you're talking about. You trust your own conclusions & are able to teach others.

Mercury Sextile Saturn

When Mercury is sextile to Saturn you focus on career issues, your professional direction, decisions about how you want to invest yourself and your talents in the foreseeable future ... and the myriad of tasks that are your daily routine. Those are, after all, the building blocks of everything else I just mentioned.

Your eye for organization and detail is keen. You use proven methods to make progress. You rely on logic and common sense -- and figure out "what's reasonable." You show discretion, practicality, and planning as you make decisions -- possibly ones recently revised since Mercury just came out of retrograde, or choices that have been hanging fire for a while -- and act on them.

Mercury Sextile Saturn

Mercury sextile Saturn prompts you to organize your ideas into sensible projects, do something useful with your knowledge, listen to pieces of helpful, facts-are-facts information ... and make some practical choices and plans. This mindset doesn't get lost in wishful thinking ... or wander down lanes of fantasies and daydreams.

There's an almost survival mode in this combination. It can stare cold, hard unpleasant truths square in the face and deal with the consequences of what it receives from the stripped-down, objective reporting of data. This is what happened -- what was said ... what was done ... what the results were ... what happened next.

Mercury Sextile Saturn

When Mercury sextiles Saturn your mind is clear and focused. Choosing carefully from your available options delivers good results.. Your thoughts are disciplined, your ideas practical. You feel you can do "whatever you put your mind to" -- and within reason, you're right.

Your objectivity and close attention to details helps organize your thoughts. You can make plans and start lining up the steps to accomplish something worthwhile. You may be too preoccupied with details at the expense of a broader vision, but for now you can develop sensible strategies to move you forward.

Mercury -- Physics, Metaphysics and Myth -- Part 1 ---> Physics ---> Mercury is the closest planet in our Solar System to the Sun. It is about twice the size of Pluto, but for now, it's the smallest official planet since scientists decided to mess around and demote Pluto down to "dwarf planet" status ... for a while. We'll see what the future brings.Mercury is also classified as a "terrestrial planet," meaning it's made of solid rock and dust, etc. In structure, it is the most similar planet to Earth.

Sciency Stuff About Mercury -- Fun things to know -- about Mercury the planet ---> All in a day's work ---> * In our Solar System, Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun. Because of this proximity it is not easy to see except at twilight. Mercury also orbits the Sun so quickly, early astronomers believed it was actually two different stars -- one which appeared in the morning and another in the evening. * A year on Mercury is only 88 days. (This is the time it takes Mercury to circle the Sun once.)

Mercury Retrograde -- A Personal Perspective -- Rethinking Life's Regular Reversals ---> Changes in latitude ... ---> Over the years -- somewhere without my realizing it -- my attitude toward Mercury retrograde has changed. Dramatically. Not being anything close to patient, I once watched the arrival of this moving-backward journey of the mind with dread and resentment. It was a huge pothole in the path of my progress, and there was no way we were going to be friends.

* Mercury ... and the Miracle of the Mind -- Astrology's Search for Intelligent Life ---> Yellow is a Mercury color! ---> Your mind makes you special ---> As an Astrologer I see both the mundaneness of common knowledge -- handling the basic facts of awareness and everyday rituals -- and a touch of miracles in Mercury. In Astrology, this planet named for the winged messenger of the gods represents your conscious human mind, the part of you that makes you a member of the most intelligent species on the planet, the part of you that makes you human -- and sometimes fallible.

From EDA: Mercury -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology December 9, 2020 Mercury ---> I went looking tonight to see what I'd written on the planet Mercury for this feature. (Never mind why. I just did.) Turns out the answer is "not much," so let's correct that. The Sun and the Moon get plenty of attention, & Mercury is just as important. All the planets are, actually. Each one is significant & deserves his time in the spotlight. I declare tonight, it's Mercury's turn.

From EDA: Mercury Retrograde -- From Everyday Astrology ---> Everyday Astrology February 2, 2021 Mercury Retrograde ---> All the planets in a traditional horoscope have a retrograde cycle, an optical illusion from the perspective of Earth when the planet seems to reverse course & for a while, move in the other direction than its usual path. Mercury retrogrades more often than any other planet -- usually three times a year for about three weeks at a time. It happens so often & the effects are so notorious, the phrase is in the common lexicon.

From EDA: Mercury Direct ---> Everyday Astrology November 20, 2019 Mercury Direct in Scorpio ---> When Mercury is retrograde, news arrives that will change your plans and perspectives. You revisit and often revise your intentions ... because the mix of life itself is shifting, and you have to wrap your mind around these different facts and possibilities. It's not over the top to say you understand reality differently. That's the purpose of Mercury retrograde. Kind of a fruit-basket-turnover of how you perceive yourself and your choices.
