Speak your truth: Mercury's dance on his way to Sagittarius


Mercury in Sagittarius, Mercury in aspect to Jupiter or Mercury in the 9th, knows a bit about the phrase, “Speak your truth.”


This doesn't always make them the most popular in the crowd. And, it doesn't make their truth equivalent to your truth. However, neither of these two factors will keep them from speaking it unless there is some type of inhibiting aspect going on.


Mercury in Scorpio will begin retrograde on Oct 21st at 18 degrees. It's as if the messenger approaches a connection with some type of higher truth (Jupiter), and says, “Wait a minute. Lets back up and think about this.” Then, down the rabbit hole he goes. The trine is waxing but does not perfect while both planets are in direct motion in Scorpio and Cancer.


Mercury retraces his steps all the way back to 2 degrees Scorpio before turning direct on November 11. On this backward journey, he passes over the upcoming new moon eclipse point of November 3 (11 degrees 16 minutes) before it happens, meets up with the Saturn, passes over the North Node, trines Neptune and even retraces the Full Moon eclipse point from this past spring. See the dates at the end of this write up for more information.


Add to this, a fact a mentioned before, that not only are our minds (Mercury) in a Mars ruled sign (Scorpio) but our motivations (Mars) lie in a Mercury ruled sign (Virgo) until Mars passes from Virgo to Libra on December 8, 2013, and what you have is a whole lot of information and a whole lot of motivation to get to more information. While Mercury is retrograde, this process is largely internalized. We meet up with forces that may keep us from sharing our insights we get from the depths during Mercury Rx with communication delays, phone problems, computer problems, etc. The point IS to internalize and consider all that has happened. Slow down and pick through the information through contemplation, maybe meditation, and to pay very close attention to what we are getting through intuitive sources rather than external tangible sources.


Mercury (our truth) and Jupiter (our higher truth) are both in water signs. Emotions and intuition play key roles in discovering our own personal truths and higher truths. To facilitate this process, it is helpful to engage in grounding activities (particularly during Mercury RX and when Mercury or Mars aspects Neptune), keep yourself hydrated and reduce your intake of stimulants (these can confound the already “on fire” nature of a double Mars/Mercury contact), be around water and fortify (Jupiter) your emotional (Cancer/Moon) base.


By the time Mercury reaches his trine with Jupiter on November 28th, we will have learned quite a bit. The eclipses of this fall would have began unfolding and refolding. We may know things that we had never contemplated prior to this. Then, by the time Mercury reaches Sagittarius on December 6th, we may just be ready to take to our soap boxes and preach about it. Or, at the very least, share it with others.


What is the point in all of this? I think a person with Mercury and Sun conjunct in Sagittarius in his 12th house may be able to tell us a little bit about it.
 

Or perhaps we could learn a bit just by listening to what someone with Mercury conjunct his Sun in Sagittarius in the second illustrates to us without words.





For your reference Mercury makes 3 passes over the new moon eclipse point of November 3.

First past (direct) October 9, 2013

Second pass (retrograde) October 31-Nov 1, 2013

Third pass (direct) November 22, 2013



Mercury also makes 3 passes to the Full Moon eclipse point which occurred this past Spring on April 25th at 5 degrees and 46 minutes of Scorpio. Dates for these passes:

First pass (direct) October 4, 2013

Second Pass (retrograde) November 5, 2013

Third pass (direct) November 17, 2013



Mercury makes three passes to Saturn in Scorpio. Dates for these passes:

First pass (direct) October 8, 2013 at 10 degrees 52 minutes Scorpio

Second pass (retrograde) October 29, 2013 at 13 degrees 19 minutes Scorpio

Third pass (direct) November 25 at 16 degrees 34 minutes Scorpio



Mercury turns direct in Scorpio on November 11, 2013. Jupiter turns retrograde on November 7. Mercury in Scorpio (moving direct) perfects his trine with Jupiter RX in Cancer on November 28 at 19 degrees and 47 minutes
