I stutter, but want to learn another language.
I am shy and don’t feel I communicate with flow and grace as most here.
I also stutter and talk too fast when I’m nervous in a crowd or one on one, depending the situation or setting. Or group of people.
I want to learn another language.
But- I’m not confident that I can say it correctly, as I already stumble my language.
I admire those who can speak eloquently and with ease and flow.
Is this possible Mercury placement?
Or would Astrology have any involvement or be helpful? Or any aspects be supportive or a struggle?
Hello! I used to stutter a lot, but with the help of a coach I realized that I should focus on the purpose of communicating first and then everything would follow suit. I have Mercury opposition Saturn. However, my Mercury trine my Moon and Pluto provides a way out. My mother tongue is Greek and I speak English and French fluently. I would check the condition of Mercury to find the difficulties and the ways out.
I haven’t become fluent in any other language besides English (well, and astrology), though I understand a second well, and can read and write in it pretty well. I’m pretty good at picking up meaning and expression in multiple languages, but have just never been immersed enough to practice speaking enough to gain fluency.
There are some language learning apps where you might be able to get some practice away from prying eyes at first. And I would look to the condition of Mercury first. Right on. I’d also check out the planet that rules the sign your Mercury is in (that be Saturn, for Capricorn). Then your 3rd house and its ruler.
Knowing nothing else about your chart, I’ve already seen you’re committed to your own learning, you’ve taken control of it (Mercury in Capricorn). You’re asking good, “teach me how to fish questions.” That’s pretty cool.
It could be the transits, but having Gemini over the 3rd house is great for learning 😀 I'm passionate about languages and like to learn all the time something new (have a few planets inside the 3rd). I only learn from passion... I don't care about the trends...
It is important to choose a language you love its sound as you would feel more inspired and will definitely learn faster. Spanish is a great choice & you will find plenty of materials.
Just go with this flow of energy and do what makes you feel happy 😊
