MERCURY ENTERS THE SIGN OF SAGITTARIUS ON 1 DECEMBER 2020
any hope of tact should be ignored
Mercury, ruler of Gemini (collects information about whatever, whenever it can) and Virgo (only interested in information that can be used in a practical way) enters the sign of its detriment.
Mercury in the sign of the archer has the tendency to overlook and discard generalised information (Gemini) and practical details (Virgo) placing attention on the bigger picture and thus becoming sloppy as information becomes scattered and unfocussed.
Mercury in Sagittarius is playful and best suits his prankster fame, I also see it as a “foot in the mouth” position, Sagittarius loves the truth and Mercury here often blurts it out in a very tactless fashion. Mercury is also prone to preaching here but it’s also an excellent placement for travelling and intellectual discourse.
