Mercury Square or Opposite Jupiter

Transiting Mercury square or opposite your natal Jupiter. The challenge at this time is to keep ideas in proper perspective. This can be a time of overly optimistic thinking. You are more prone to see the big picture and have difficulty focusing on details. Read the fine print very carefully. In your communications with others, you may have a tendency to be too sure of your facts and your presentations can come off as being cocky and arrogant. You may also have a tendency to exaggerate details now. This combination is good for making the sale if you are trying to sell something, but it can also mean that you later have difficulty delivering on promises. It is a good time for getting over writers block, but be sure to proof read the final draft.
