On November 10th, Mercury moves into Sagittarius and begins our journey towards the upcoming fire sign season!
Mercury is the planet of communication, memory, technology, and travel—the ways we often explore and express ourselves. When it moves into Sagittarius, the fire sign of expansion and exploration, we can feel more encouraged to say what we are feeling, for better or worse.
Mercury can struggle in this sign at times due to Sagittarius’ more impulsive, go-with-the-flow approach. Mercury is big about fixating on the details and can find itself running off at the mouth or taking on too much in the excitement of Sagittarius. However, it does give a strong impulse to shake things up, which is good for us now and again.
While all the signs will feel the effects of Mercury in Sagittarius, a few signs may find this period will work to their advantage more than others. Check out the signs below (Rising and Sun!) to see which signs are most likely to thrive under Mercury in Sagittarius.
As Mercury moves through your 1st House of Self and Identity, you may feel more empowered to speak your mind. Of course, your fire sign energy already gives you an edge in that department, but sometimes, we tend to avoid potential conflicts or steer clear of certain topics to keep things uplifting and positive—and Mercury is here to push you to say what you mean, not what you think others want to hear.
With Mercury moving through your 3rd House of Communication and Local Travel, these themes will be highlighted double by the communication-oriented planet’s presence. This can be a great time for catching up with old friends and reaching out to those you haven’t heard from in a while. This can also work well to make plans to meet up with friends, neighbors, or family close by. This can be especially healing if you’ve felt distance from others lately—Mercury is more than ready to help you say what you’ve been meaning to say and get connected once again.
With this transit taking place in your 6th House of Habits, Routines, and Wellness (the natural ruler for Mercury), you’ll feel a strong push to get the details of your life in order. This is a time when you will likely see more logical, clear-cut paths to successfully manage your daily life as well as your work routines and be able to put them into action. You may feel a more intense focus on your health as well, whether this is about creating healthier routines or getting that doctor’s checkup you’ve felt you needed for a while; this transit has the potential for you to feel more in control of yourself and your surroundings, so take advantage.
As Mercury makes its way through your 8th House of Bonds, Intimacy, and Shared Resources, you may find yourself more intuitive and open than usual. While conversations can be uncomfortable, especially with close partners, Mercury is ready to give the nudge you need to talk about some of the more difficult or tumultuous topics, such as vulnerability or shared finances. You feel more connected to your gut feelings, but you also desire to view things from a logical perspective rather than solely fixating on the emotional, giving you some great balance to work with for the next few weeks.
