Jupiter-Mercury Aspects

Jupiter Conjunct Mercury

Mental Giants.

Keywords: expansive, inspired, big ideas

This is an excellent period mentally, when our minds are stimulated and we’re ready, set and anxious to learn; in fact, we crave new knowledge! The bigger the idea and the broader the concept, the more receptive we are to it. Mental stretching never felt so good. How big is the universe, anyway? This is a good time to explore the heights, depths and edges of any subject. We respond to new information and may even be a teacher or mentor ourselves during this period. We speak quite persuasively now, inspiring others, but we may overdo it in the preaching department. We may also exaggerate, talk too much or in a loud voice, or be overly confident of our ideas. And the problem with knowing it all is that then we can’t learn anything! Trying to stay humble will help us articulate our big plans for the future. Expansion never looked so good.

Live and Learn.

Keywords: stimulated, inspired, lively

Our minds run fast and smooth for a few days, like a well-oiled engine. This is a great time to conquer something that's been puzzling us. If at first we don't understand it, we should find a bigger picture to frame it in. Context helps. We’re broad-minded, tolerant and much more philosophical than usual at this time. Social engagements work out well, particularly if they center on the exchange of information. We’re more talkative than usual and must be careful not to hog the microphone or dominate the conversation; others want to contribute too. Limit your own contributions to sixty seconds. Likewise, take care not to exaggerate or talk too loudly. Tasteful jokes go over well now, as does any type of inspirational or motivational speaking. Utilize the power of positive thinking. It's stronger than you realize! This is the best time to study a foreign language or conduct business with someone from a different country.

Know-it-All.

Keywords: overconfident, nervous, arrogant

Minds are stimulated now, perhaps even over-stimulated. Boy, do we have some big ideas, and it’s wonderful to entertain such grand plans; but our optimism no doubt exceeds our ability to step up and fulfill them. We think big but we aren’t very practical. We mustn’t ignore pesky details that threaten to topple our grand plan; instead, we should figure out how to incorporate them. Remain open to others’ input, because together you’re more likely to find the answers you need. Look for mistakes and correct them, but next week be sure to review the entire matter. Watch for signs of dishonesty, fraud, miscommunication or negligence. Caution, though difficult in the moment, pays off later. Communication is iffy during this period, due to some people’s exaggeration or know-it-all attitude. Some of us are a little big for our britches right now. If that shoe fits, rein it in so you’re not embarrassed tomorrow. Figure out the difference between confidence and boasting.

The Forest AND the Trees.

Keywords: humorous, optimistic, curious

This is one of those great times when we can see the trees as well as the forest. Details and grand plans merge in a delightfully complete scenario. We feel optimistic and hopeful for the future; our minds are active, tolerant and open to new information. Socially, we can make very beneficial contacts during the span of this transit, short though it may be. We’re discerning today, yet upbeat. We’re talkative, yet articulate and well-spoken. Words have more impact than we can imagine so choose yours carefully. Tasteful jokes are appropriate now and any type of inspirational or motivational speaking is favored, because we’re impassioned about our favorite subjects -- even prophetic. This is the best time to study a foreign language, to travel or to make contact with a person from another country. Utilize the power of positive thinking. It's stronger than you realize!

Exaggeration.

Keywords: exaggeration, overblown, dishonesty

Our minds are strongly stimulated for a few days, but this can result in lots of misdirected nervous energy that makes us feel both high-strung and absent-minded. Focus is a very real challenge now, and our tendency to enhance stories to impress others may backfire. If we can stick to the facts, we’ll be a lot safer. Given the inclination toward exaggeration and self-righteousness, this could be easier said than done. We shouldn’t get bent out of shape if someone challenges us, but instead view it as an opportunity to clarify our position. We’re so distractible now that sleight of hand can keep our focus away from the real action. Watch for deception and don’t give little details the slip. They’re sure to come back to haunt you later. Words have power, but we may be over the top today, which makes others dubious. Avoid exaggeration and arrogance. Don’t take offense if others are tactless.
