Mercury in Capricorn is in mutual reception to Saturn in Virgo at this time. This encourages people to take a hard look at how the communicate, what they think about, what they are interested in and so forth.
Today I had to critique someone’s letter applying to business school. I also did several consultations, taking care to offer something valuable in the time allowed.Textbook!
A few days ago we had the Sagittarius who has to learn to let her partner talk. I continue to defend / support my status (or lack of it) behind the scenes.
I’m really grateful for the prompt to do this. It’s a fortune to have something new to think about. Like how and why the soldier routinely avoids “emotional damage“. I have no luck with that at all.
I’ve also considered how I really feel about being a lowly astrologer and I’ll tell you what’s emerged.
I am not interested in “common knowledge”. I am not interested in TV. I am not interested in ‘what everybody knows”.
I am interested uncommon knowledge. I am interesting in free, independent thinking. Matter of fact, I will do anything to garner just a nugget. Dress up like a gay man and go undercover for example.
I am also pretty sure how I got this way. This would be the foundation (Saturn / Capricorn) of my mind (Mercury/Virgo). As difficult as this process as been, it’s nice to find yourself standing on solid ground, even if the ground is unconventional.
How much mind do you pay your mind?
I have Mercury in Cancer – I either connect with someone on some soul-level, or there just is no connection. I have never been a bullshitter, and cannot really deal with being around one. Salespeople literally make me cringe – they see it in my face and give up pretty quickly.
Merc in Sadge. I want to know everything about everything. The more I know about anything, the better.
Mer in the first house in Gemini. My brain goes to places that are a little far out,lol. I love books of all kinds and eat them up like food.
mercury in scorpio conjunct scorpio pluto/sun/midheaven .. i go over things again and again in my mind to understand it, i’m interested in motivations, the “why” behind everything ( growing up in church i would press my pastor with lots of questions quite annoyingly lol ) .. the crux of the matter,.. and having moon & mars in aries kind of makes me very insistent in getting to the point.. i love writers who pick themselves apart, honest yet visceral
Mercury/Mars conjunct. Mars seems to speed up my mental processes. So much so, I think faster than I can type, so the race is on!!
