Mercury Square Saturn

Today November 1st, Mercury in backpedaling mode squares Saturn at 26 degrees (Mercury in Libra and Saturn in Capricorn) and then after Mercury stations direct on the 3rd and begins moving forward he will square Saturn again on the 9th.

Squares are challenging aspects and these Mercury-Saturn squares will set the tone for the next 19 days or so. This is “go- slow” energy. Saturn, at home in Capricorn, is more powerful than Mercury and since Saturn does not rush into things, use caution when trying to push for decisions or results. If you make hasty decisions at this time, you will probably regret some, if not all of those purchases in the weeks to come. Take your time. Do your research. And very importantly be aware of your limitations. Exactly how much can you commit to at this time?

You may find yourself weighed down by self-doubt and negative thoughts. You may believe your ideas aren’t “good enough” or you're not “clever enough”. You may also feel somehow restricted by language or your ability with words and to a large extent you will feel you are being tested by an older person or someone in a position of authority.

“Never let self-doubt hold you captive” - Roy Bennett (Mercury square Saturn)
