Mercury Conjunct Saturn

© 2004 Curtis Manwaring

Mercury Conjunction Saturn Transiting Mercury conjunct your natal Saturn. You focus on the trees, but miss the forest. Your mind is more disciplined now and concentration is usually improved and your attention is focused on the details. Socially, you may tend to expect the worst from others. Some people will suffer the blues but this is not usually serious as this transit has a short duration unless it is stationary.

This can be a time when you are especially prone towards negative thinking. As Dennis Cole says, the lesson is to dwell on what you want, not on what you don't want, because what you dwell on becomes your reality. Occasionally this transit means saying goodbye to someone who is about to leave for a long time, perhaps forever, and this could make you sad for a time (hence the depressive aspect).

More on determining planetary condition...

If Saturn is lord of your 1st house, you are more focused on the details now and may miss the big picture. You may receive important news now or have to say goodbye to somebody.

If lord of your 2nd, you may scrutinize your financial situation to the point that you become depressed and think you are in worse shape financially than you really are.

If lord of the 3rd, you may be prone to miss opportunities that present themselves in the community due to habit. You may not feel like talking much or feel depressed. You may feel isolated or lonely now or have to talk about serious matters with older relatives.

If lord of the 4th, you may have to discuss serious matters with your parents. It is a good time to inspect contracts or legal papers regarding a lease or real estate.

If lord of the 5th, you may have temporary responsibility of another's children. Sometimes this indicates the breakup of a love relationship.

If lord of the 6th, you may have to concentrate more carefully in the office. Paperwork becomes more tedious. A serious mood pervades the office environment.

If lord of the 7th, you may have an important talk with your mate about serious or long range issues. On occasion this can signify divorce or a separation, but this aspect alone will not cause that.

If lord of the 8th, your attention may focus on tax or debt related issues. It is a good time to inspect loan agreements. You may be thinking of writing the terms of a will or estate.

If lord of the 9th, you may have an obligation that forces you to travel now. This is a good time for scientific inquiry or research. You may have a hard time with faith.

If lord of the 10th, you may have a career decision to make and be focused on plans to make the change. There may be excessive distance between yourself and your superiors.

If lord of the 11th, you probably feel a little lonely and isolated now. A friend may be saying goodbye.

If lord of the 12th, be careful about too many depressive or morbid thoughts now as this position is more likely to cause depression. Also indicates the possibility of a serious error in judgement, because Saturn represents agnoia.
