MERCURY ENTERS THE SIGN OF SAGITTARIUS ON 24 NOVEMBER 2021
MERCURY ENTERS THE SIGN OF SAGITTARIUS
During its stay in Sagittarius, Mercury will become OOB on 3rd December (GMT) at 12°59’ Sagittarius returning in bound on the 28th December at 23°16 Capricorn.
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.
A few days before Mercury becomes OOB it will be first antiscion Pluto (27th November) and then parallel Pluto (30th November), Mercury-Pluto conjunctions always makes me think about “words that can kill” or obsessive thoughts, don’t get involved in any communication squabbles during these days because they might turn out nasty. Another twist to this aspect could be devastating news too.
Mercury OOB is on steroids, big truths could come out, but not necessarily “true” verities, thoughts could get really scattered even more so around 7th December when Mercury makes a square aspect to Neptune (20°24’). We need to be ever more attentive during Mercury’s stay in Sagittarius about re-posting and/or believing news which will eventually turn out to be fake.
