Mercury in Sagittarius
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Mercury is Thoth, the Sacred Scribe. Sagittarius is allied with the Warrior Goddess Sekhmet. While Thoth is often perceived as a detached and logical archetype (think of a cosmic Spock), this position brings out the Warrior in the usually reserved Thoth.
Mercury in Sagittarius natives love to talk. They are opinionated, inspiring, and interested in a wide range of topics. Sagittarius always wants to back up and see a wider perspective. Politics, spirituality, and philosophy are areas of interest to Mercury in Sagittarius individuals.
There are times when a Sagittarius Mercury says too much, too loudly, and with too much emphasis. They can be blunt and fall prey to foot-in-mouth disease. They can usually maneuver out of the situation by using their charm and charisma, and there are still moments when their big aura doesn’t know when to stop and where the boundary lies. When this happens, they can be argumentative, challenging others when they don’t want to engage.
Mercury/Thoth will remain in the emanation of Sagittarius/Sekhmet from November 24 until December 13. For much of this time we will be in the eclipse portal, moving from one phase of experience to another. This is a fertile time for inward contemplation on big topics.
