Mercury Sextile Saturn

The energy of Mercury sextile Saturn brings a clear, sensible, focused mindset. It may not be brilliant & or fast, but it's organized & dependable> That counts for something. You prioritize well. You plan carefully & lay out good strategies. You make conservative, reasonable choices. Basically, you prove the adage, "You can do anything you put your mind to." Right now, your mind is an excellent tool.

Your vision may be fairly narrow. Saturn prefers to leave the wide-angle views to Jupiter while he concentrates on the details, so right now you're good at that. You follow a recipe to a predictable outcome by taking things one piece at a time.

Mercury Sextile Saturn

When Mercury sextiles Saturn, your thinking gets serious. Caution takes over. You become quieter & more organized with a very look-before-you-leap attitude. You talk less & plan more. You listen to your common sense. You do research & weigh your options before making choices. You're after long-term rewards rather than instant gratification. You think about the future -- & how to play it safe.

Your ambitions are sensible & so is your outlook. You take life one step at a time & pay attention to details. You set goals & reach them using reasonable, reliable strategies. You don't depend on luck or take chances. You show self-discipline & don't waste materials or motion. Your results are structured, impressive, orderly & neat. Nothing fancy, just the facts ... presented well. Completely practical.

Mercury depicts your capacity to form ideas and opinions, the way you deal with facts, and the way you process data.

* Mercury -- Ruler of Gemini -- Ruler of Virgo ---> Yellow is a Mercury color! ---> The metaphor for your mind ---> Mercury, quick, intense, lively and highly mobile -- racing its way around the Sun faster than any of the other known planets, is the astrological metaphor which symbolizes an individual's mental and communications skills, the intellectual components of his personality, the inner self that deals with physical movement, informational exchange, discrimination, learning and analysis.

* Mercury: Symbol of Your Intellectual Self ---> Yellow is a Mercury color ---> Your mind, intellectual energy & assets ---> Mercury in Astrology is the symbol for your conscious mind with its amazing array of accessories and gifts. That's the short answer to the question, "What does Mercury represent?" ... because the Sun, Moon & all the known planets have distinct meanings in Astrology. But like most quick short answers, this one is incomplete. Mercury doesn't just symbolize your mind ....

My Notes About Mercury * -- A comprehensive list -- of random things about Mercury -- in no particular order ---> Yellow is a Mercury color!! ---> The symbol of your mind ... your intellect ---> * Mercury is Astrology's symbol for your intellect, your conscious mind.

From the Blogs, Ezines

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.

When Mercury Leads the Sun -- Mercury passes and moves out -- in front of the Sun ---> Yellow is a Mercury color. ---> Racing ahead, out in front like he ought to ---> When Mercury leads the Sun, your intellectual shift moves gradually out of the pensive, reflective, "planning mode" you've occupied for the past several weeks, and you're ready to talk, write, and share ideas openly and freely again with "strangers." This is the stage in the intellectual cycle where you consult with others, gather in new information ....

When Mercury Trails the Sun -- Mercury retrograde moves behind the Sun ---> Yellow is a Mercury color. ---> Quiet time ---> In the next few weeks you'll become more contemplative, spend more time in planning and research, quietly consider what you've learned recently ... and what you want to do next with yourself, your life, your interests, and your mind. With Mercury in a trailing position, you will be more observant and less talkative, more intuitive and less expressive ....

* 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.

Saturn in Astrology

Basic Stuff About Saturn in Astrology ---> Saturn rules Capricorn. Capricorn is an Earth Sign ---> The 6th Planet ---> * Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun in our Solar System, and the second largest planet. It is located between Jupiter and Uranus. * It takes Saturn 29.5 years to orbit the Sun -- and circle the Zodiac. It stays in each of the Zodiac signs just under 2 1/2 years. * Saturn rules the Zodiac sign Capricorn.

Saturn -- Physics, Metaphysics and Myth ---> Physics ---> Saturn is the sixth planet from the Sun and the second largest in the Solar System. Only Jupiter is larger. Saturn is the most distant planet that can be seen with the naked eye. It appears as a small, yellowish star that doesn't twinkle. (Only stars twinkle; planets don't.) If you can keep track of such things, it's the fifth brightest object in the Solar System ....

* What Does Saturn Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> Saturn ... finding stature, taking responsibility ---> Saturn depicts an Inner Self that is careful, precise, methodical and concerned with creating lasting structures in the world. It contains your self-discipline, your sense of responsibility and your ways of relating to authority. It describes your need for status, and is apparent in how you build a career .....

More about Saturn

Saturn Territory -- What Does Saturn Mean ... by Sign, House, and Aspect ---> Saturn is: Practical ambition, the need for social status, reputation, public recognition Playing by the rules and fulfilling your designated social role Professional contributions, career development and issues Your ability for self-discipline, focus, concentration, control Your responses to perceptions of lack, limitation, restriction, vulnerability, frustration

* Saturn Retrograde -- Rebuilding Your Personal Foundations ---> Delays ... get worse ---> Saturn is notorious for signifying delays, and because under stress it also symbolizes limitation, restriction, and loss, many followers of astrology consider it their least favorite planet. But I think it gets a bad rap and lots of blame it really doesn't deserve. Sure, Saturn makes you work hard for everything it offers.
