Mercury enters the sign of Sagittarius on December 1, 2020 and will be there until December 19, 2020. This is a Mercury transit that will not be as intense as the Scorpio one. Mercury wants to find the truth, but there is also a sense of optimism and joy that is associated with Sagittarius that can truly change our outlook (even briefly). Here, Mercury is sharp, funny, and blunt. Mercury is not afraid to let other people know what it thinks, which can make people admire and respect it, but others might wince. It can be polarizing. However, we need more of the fire as we get ready to see the Cardinal Earth energy from Capricorn switch into Aquarius later this month. Mercury in Sagittarius has us all preparing for the next chapter, and most importantly, makes us unafraid to embrace what it is to come with that tinge of hopefulness it tends to bring.
Aries – As this change in Mercury signs makes you feel livelier, you must remember to not cause too much offense. You can provide great insight to others and feel confident in your self-expression, but you need to make sure that your words do not cut. Mercury here brings back confidence and optimism to your life. This is a great time to pick up on some projects you abandoned and try to finish them since the trine with Mars, your ruler, will have you motivated.
Taurus – You will feel as if you are revisiting the past with this transit, trying to let go and move on. With this shift in Mercury signs, your concerns are still pertaining to relationships and how they have impacted you in the last year. Mercury in Scorpio taught you what you needed and who to appreciate. Mercury here will make you more reserved and analytical, a benefit needed as you wait for the new year.
Gemini – Mercury in Sagittarius lights up your relationship house, making you more charming and confident in your mannerisms and self-expression. Words might come from a more diplomatic standpoint as you opt to keep the peace instead of bringing conflict. The people you will attract during this period will be like minded and will keep you extremely engaged. Have fun.
Cancer – Your focus now will be on self-care and relaxation, as both Mercury in Sagittarius and the Full Moon in Gemini bring a much-needed reminder to take breaks for yourself, especially after this intense year. This can be a period of growth and innovation as you dive into things that bring you peace and harmony spiritually. Prepare to receive inspiration from dreams.
Leo – Excitement is in the air for you this much-anticipated Sagittarius season. You are in your element, shining brightly, and this is the moment you have been waiting for. Mercury lights up your mind, heart, and spirit. You will be more apt to reach out to people, engage in romance, or just focus on creating big things. This energy is lighthearted for you, giving you back some control.
Virgo – Discovering things from the past or just an overall focus on what keeps you stabilized will be a major theme during this transit. The impact of the Full Moon will make you strive for balance at home and work. You will continue to pursue and fuel your dreams, but first, you will consider resolving any pending issues in the home front before setting your sights towards the top.
Libra – A need to learn and explore will stimulate your mind and spirit during this transit. It will bring us all a sense of optimism, which is very much needed as we wait for the New Year. Mercury makes things a little more lighthearted for you and your partners. Friends and business partners will be intrigued by what you want to say and do. Speak your truth and do not be afraid to seek new knowledge that will contribute to your growth.
Scorpio – There will be a focus on work and finding a balance with your own stability and care. Mercury in Sagittarius will allow you to bring the confidence you need to bring more grounding in your life. This is the season to “treat yourself,” but remember to consider what is truly worth binging on. Consider how you can find ways to budget more efficiently.
Sagittarius – Mercury in your sign is a great transit, especially with the Sun already there. This is a period of reenergizing as all these Earth placements might have made you feel a little off in the last year. You are now ready to take charge and control, especially with the trine Mercury will be making to Mars later in the month. Prepare to be center stage.
Capricorn – This can be a period of reflection, calm, and spirituality with this transit. You can feel the guidance that this transit will bring, since it is Jupiter-ruled. Think about all that you have accomplished in the last few years and commend yourself. The road has been tough, but you have managed to overcome; even if you do not feel satisfied, it all still matters. Take things easier as we get closer to the new year.
Aquarius – This will be a good time to socialize on social media. Mercury in Sagittarius will make you more charismatic and many people will notice. This can also be a period of reflection when it comes to your intimate relationships. As the Full Moon brings a close to past relationships, this cycle has you looking ahead to the future. You will no longer be inclined to repeat the same mistakes and be more willing to let go of relationships that don’t work for you.
Pisces – A focus on building and perfecting will be on your mind with this Mercury transit. You feel the fire and passion to make your goals a reality without feeling fear or being held back. Mercury in this sign might cause some tension with your sign, but you will still benefit from the abundant optimistic energy Sagittarius tends to offer. Set your sights and shoot for the stars.
