with Saturn in Capricorn -- for the third and final time.
This aspect formed at 20°
This is what it looked like to an Astrologer.
The theme of this pattern
careful, traditional methods and applications
yield satisfying, dependable results.
Who are the players
and what are they doing?
Mercury = your ability to convert knowledge, information, the intellectual data you collect and the experiences of your five physical sense into opinions and views that help you make sense of the world
Saturn = the Inner Self that demands order and organization ... and helps you apply them, your ability to work hard on projects and ventures that take long-term planning and determined effort, your sense of discipline and responsibility
Departing sextiles = working with new knowledge and information, learning helpful everyday stuff, inventing new ways to look at and work with what you know, new ideas & data points to collect that you acquire in casual everyday contact -- things you read, conversations you have, light research, opinions or knowledge you share with others.
Well, after rummaging around back-and-forth in its retrograde cycle for the last two months, Mercury has finally made up its mind about things to do -- and how to go about them. Now it's ready to make some "permanent choices" (you know how those go) and actually get some work you can count on accomplished.
This intellectual energy is organized and practical. It's also visionary in ways that make it unusually valuable. With Pisces to provide the inspiration, it can move beyond the usual plodding and methodical means of Saturn in Capricorn and turn in results that are both artistic and profitable -- truly the best of both worlds.
Your ideas are disciplined and realistic. You make careful, rational choices on what to work with and what to set aside -- at least for the time being. Your determined attitude and sensible strategies for getting what you want can hand you success over and over again. Take things one step at a time and don't get cocky -- but at the same time, don't "play small" either.
Step up. Take charge. And let your own miraculous mind show you each milestone you need to hit and how to do it. It will. Make it your working partner -- the way you would respect and treat another human being, even -- and you may develop a new working strategy for engaging life.
This energy is good for solving problems, setting targets and making things happen. This mindset and its operations can deliver invaluable confidence ... in yourself and the benevolence of life. Give it the chance to show you how.
What to expect?
- Careful choices and well-considered plans bring you the results you want
- Your thoughts are organized, disciplined and conservative -- with the wisdom of experience behind them
- You can accomplish projects -- or make excellent headway on work that uses tried-and-true concepts and step-by-step execution
- Your approach to life is practical and efficient -- and the careful, controlled use of resources right at hand counts for a lot
- One cautionary note ---> you may be a little too rigid or inflexible in your thinking -- playing it safe is your preference for now
Final notes / looking ahead ---> Mercury's next aspect is the departing sextile with Pluto in Capricorn. This will show you how to apply these ideas to your overall effort, the tapestry of your life -- and how the accomplishment of this work you're doing will adjust the trajectory of your life so that you contribute more to the world around you -- and harvest more benefits for yourself in return.
Whenever Saturn is involved, there's plenty of Karma in the mix -- which is why it's so important to get things right. The extra effort you've invested here will pay off nicely in the long run. That makes all this extra delay and discipline we've all put up with these past eight weeks worthwhile. Trust me on that. When you look back in a few more weeks, you'll like what you've accomplished.
