On December 1, 2020, Mercury, the messenger of God, enters the sign of Sagittarius, a home not very comfortable for this god but at least in the hearth, the fire burns, it is the light, and we can see things better, people. After a very long period in which Mercury transited the sign of Scorpio (due to demotion), we can get our heads out of Pluto’s land and stay in the light.
As Sagittarius is a mutable fire sign associated with the idea of expanding our horizons, with Mercury in this fire sign, we become more optimistic, as if we have more interesting options, we can more easily visualize what we want, where we want to go. It’s time to look for the truth. Even though with Mercury in Sagittarius we may think we know them all, it is good to understand that Truth is a moving target, there will always be much to learn and understand. It is important to think before we speak, not to let our words accidentally cause “pain” in others.
Mercury in Sagittarius is ruled by Jupiter still in Capricorn and that makes it look uncomfortable with the Moon in Gemini in the moment map. We need to be more vigilant with all the information that comes to us now. Many can be a form of propaganda that promotes the interests and agendas of people with high positions (Jupiter in Capricorn), work projects, health, (Jupiter in the sixth house). Incoming messages must be questioned and tested before they can be believed. Promises can be great but impossible to deliver, mainly because they are unrealistic. On December 13, Mercury in Sagittarius looks like a square with Neptune in Pisces which will make communication extremely confusing and absurd. And Mercury in Sagittarius merging with the South Node in Sagittarius can bring an end to karmic payments to relatives, brothers, and sisters. It is time to learn that the Light frees us from the restrictions of “darkness”, it is much better to live in the LIGHT.
