Broadening your worldview
While Mercury transits Sagittarius, and depending on how it affects planets in your birth chart, you could find yourself broadening your worldview and exploring a variety of subjects. There’s an urge to expose yourself to new ideas and perspectives, especially of a philosophical nature. You ask yourself life’s big questions, wondering, What does it all mean?
Nitpicky details, facts and figures are less interesting now, and you make decisions based on intuitive knowing rather than logical analysis. This is an excellent time to focus on your ideal vision for the future, though not so favorable for figuring out the steps it will take to get there. There is also a tendency to blurt out the first thing that comes to your mind which is known as “foot-in-mouth” syndrome. Planning and practicality can come later. Optimistic thinking and faith in positive outcomes characterize this transit.
Generosity and idealism
You can be a highly entertaining storyteller now, and you may have a tendency to tell tall tales. You make broad, generalized statements that you might not be able to back up with any hard evidence. As long as you don’t become arrogant and think that your “truth” is the only one, people will forgive you, since you tend to come from a place of generosity and idealism.
Travel and different cultures
In your longing to stretch beyond the mundane world of the familiar, travel will appeal to you, especially to foreign countries. You might feel compelled to brush up on your foreign language skills or learn about different cultures.
