Mercury Square Saturn

Mercury square Saturn brings a depressed, pessimistic attitude that can really clog your thinking & sour your attitude on life. It interferes with new ideas & perspectives. Thinking is traditional, rigid & lacks creative zest.

When you talk to yourself & others, all you can see are the reasons why your ideas won't work, why you can't move forward on them because of commitments, responsibilities, a lack of authority or other interference

One part of your life (where you want things structured, safe, predictable & carefully organized -- the area where Saturn is located) resists any new information, ingenious solutions to problems, creative inspirations ... even "better ideas."

Mercury Square Saturn

Mercury square Saturn describes intellectual energy that is cross-ways with notions of structure, boundaries & organization. This energy feels sluggish, difficult to manipulate & terribly pedantic. There's very little wiggle room when it comes to style & accuracy in expressing your thoughts, & creativity may not find much welcome either.

This energy promotes seriously limited thinking, a negative attitude & a pessimistic perspective that all reinforce each other. It gives a dim, narrow view of the world & "life in general." You may realize you're dealing with serious problems & may barely have enough resources to cope with them all. That alone is pretty sobering.

Mercury Square Saturn

Mercury / Saturn squares are a time when you present your ideas, thoughts, opinions, writing & general knowledge to others for review. Your audience isn't an easy one to play to either. It consists of people who have their own authority to back them up, who have give your issues a lot of thought -- or who have maybe made up their minds & aren't ready to be confused by challenging facts.

Whatever the situation, people "in charge" or who have status & standing are in a position to pass judgment on whatever you bring to the discussion. They may consider this exercise to be "just a courtesy / a formality" -- or they may think it's just a waste of time -- or they're not convinced you have anything to offer they want to hear. Like I said ... a tough audience. No kidding.

Mercury square Saturn

Mercury square Saturn promotes a seriously depressed or overly conservative mindset. You are likely dealing with serious issues, limited options and for some reason are wary of new information. You may not have enough sources of news ... or you may not trust the ones that are available. You may not know for sure what to believe ... so you feel your best choice is to go slow and err on the side of caution.

Using "what's worked in the past" over-rules any effort to experiment. Tried-and-true methods seem to offer more direction and comfort than anything new or anything based mostly on theory. Following this route may indeed help you stay safe -- or at least not get you in more serious trouble, but it could also slow you down in solving the problems you face ... faster.

Mercury Square Saturn

The energy of Mercury square Saturn feels like Mercury retrograde. You have trouble thinking clearly. Your mind and perspectives are stunted or warped. Decisions are stalled or unreliable and communications are messed up, misunderstood or incomplete.

With Mercury in Libra square Saturn in Capricorn, what you think or say about career plans, professional involvements or public commitments isn't popular. Partners aren't onboard with your intentions ... or they may not be ready to shift gears fast enough to support you. Also, they have their own agendas., which makes things complicated. (Yeah. Terrific.)

* Mercury in Your Natal Chart -- Fore, Aft and Center ---> Yellow is a Mercury color! ---> Metaphor for the mind ---> Mercury, named for the Roman god of commerce, communication and messages, has come to symbolize in Astrology, the way a Native employs his mind, wit, charm, and intellect.

What Does Mercury Represent -- in Your Natal Chart? * -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> In mythology, Mercury was the winged messenger of the Gods. ---> Your mind -- at work and play ---> In Astrology, Mercury represents your conscious, rational mind.

* 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.

More about Mercury

* 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.

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 .....

* 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.
