Saturn-Mercury Aspects

Saturn Conjunct Mercury

Disciplined but Limited Thinking.

Keywords: sensible, sober, cynical

Our biggest challenge for the few days of this transit will be thinking outside the box. Our minds feel disciplined but limited, and we may even feel quite slow in our thinking, though methodical and thorough. Practice some mental gymnastics to loosen up and don’t over-think things. Be aware that your limited perceptions may prevent you from seeing important factors; be skeptical but not cynical. On the other hand, a shrewd business sense is in operation at the moment and can help us select the best choice among many. Some folks may feel too shy to speak up during this time, even when they have something important to say. We shouldn’t let our inhibitions get the best of us. If we’ve got something to contribute, let’s speak up. Economy of speech is evident under this influence; we don’t use many words when only a few will do. This is an excellent time for any type of structured learning.

Problem Solving.

Keywords: discerning, methodical, determined

This is the perfect time to work on a project that requires skill, mental discipline and attention to detail. We should apply powerful mental processes to problem solving during the several days that this transit lasts. Take a methodical approach and utilize the pragmatic, practical qualities this influence promises. Don’t give up if the going gets tough; patience and persistence pay off with splendid results, even if we have to wait a little while to see them. Tunnel vision keeps us focused but shouldn’t limit our perception or perspective. Minds absorb and organize information quickly and correctly, so it’s a fine time to go to a lecture or class, or teach one. When presenting information, proceed in a patient and orderly way; don’t waste words or energy on extraneous information. Students and teachers should have little trouble staying focused and on track.

Mental Rigidity.

Keywords: depressed, skeptical, grumpy

Difficulty communicating and mental blocks will be clearly evident under this challenging transit, which persists for several days. Folks are more skeptical than usual, and even cynical. ‘I'll see it when I believe it’ is the dubious response to any information that strays outside the realm of absolutely normal. We have limited perceptions at this time and suffer from mental rigidity and even temporary depression. We tend to be over-critical, clinging stubbornly to already established ideas. Many folks are dogmatic or narrow-minded. We may even feel inadequate when it comes to our own mental capacity or speaking abilities. We’re willing to work hard, but we have difficulty explaining our work to others. Delayed documents or miscommunications frustrate us and slow us down. Take frequent breaks, especially if headaches or hunched-up shoulders are bothersome. Know that this influence will soon pass.

Organization and Focus.

Keywords: organized, focused, sober

For several days, work flows effortlessly from our minds to our industrious and nimble fingers. Discipline and attention to detail pay off big-time with splendid results, which we may or may not see right away. Take a methodical approach to work tasks and utilize the pragmatic, practical qualities this influence promises. This is a great time to tackle any type of administrative work, because we feel much more organized and efficient than usual. Precision work is well indicated too, with our attentive focus on detail and minutiae. Our perceptions are heightened and our reasoning powers are keen. Clarity of thought leads to clear and accurate communication, and improved perception helps us find and use details that have been overlooked. Studying and teaching go equally well at this time. After work, socialize with people who share your intellectual interests. The discussion will be splendid and informative.

Limited Perceptions.

Keywords: cynical, quiet, reserved

Under this challenging but mercifully short transit, we see what's wrong but can't see what's right. We shouldn’t make the mistake of throwing the baby out with the bath water, however. We have limited perceptions at this time and suffer from mental rigidity, cynicism and even temporary depression. We tend to be over-critical and want to cling stubbornly to already established ideas. Many folks are dogmatic or narrow-minded. Employees and bosses or other authority figures don't see eye-to-eye at this time. Mind and duty lead us in opposite directions; for best results, do some of both. Temporary feelings of isolation or loneliness are very possible now. We could feel unsure of our ideas, even the very solid ones. Projection is quite common now, so don’t blame the other guy if you feel inhibited or shy about speaking out. It may be more your fault than theirs.
