In Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Mercury is allied with Thoth, the Sacred Scribe. Thoth is an elder god of Egypt, the creator of language, writing, and time. His wisdom is grounded in the mind and expressed through communication.
Sagittarius is allied with Sekhmet, the lion headed goddess associated with famine, drought, and pestilence. Sekhmet is a fierce agent for change. She activates a willingness to cut cords when needed and the ability to charge forth when required.
Mercury in Sagittarius is never shy about expressing an opinion and loves a passionate exchange of ideas. This fire sign is naturally interested in the philosophical foundations of spiritual and social concepts. The expansive enthusiasm natural to this sign can carry those born with this position beyond the boundaries of intellectual exploration, into passionate advocacy of a cause.
Mercury in Sagittarius people are the ones who speak up, giving voice to what others are afraid to say. They can be blunt, sometimes to a fault. Under this seeming lack of consideration lies an ability to strip away falsehood and a seeking of truth that can be breathtaking. If there is an elephant in the living room, a Mercury in Sagittarius person will point it out, roaring the truth to all who will listen.
Mercury/Thoth will journey through Sagittarius/Sekhmet from December 1 through the 20th.
