- Mercury conjunct Saturn in Sagittarius: 27 deg
Saturn defines Mercury's ideas. Words are official. This is the aspect of a verbal or written commitment, a firm answer or a "No." Due to Saturn's association with endings, this could also be a goodbye or verbal declaration of boundaries. Mercury in Sagittarius' big-picture view is narrowed, and focus is applied to one area.
However, upcoming influences such as the Gemini Full Moon and Mercury Rx indicate that today's "last word" will not be the last word. There's more to come - questions, a change of opinion, additional facts.
And, this is a repeat aspect:
- Dec 6th, 2017: Mercury Rx conjunct Saturn (28 deg)
Whatever is confirmed, signed or finalized today will be revisited on December 6th. The proof or rules may be questioned. Note that Mercury and Saturn will make another conjunction, but this one will take place at 2 degrees Capricorn on January 13th, 2018. A different sign, but I think it will be connected to today's Mercury/Saturn union. I think the final, final word will truly be carved in stone, due to Capricorn's Earth-sign manifestation. But first, there will be a process of reviews and second-guessing (in Sagittarius) as a belief, truth or essential meaning is examined.
Today's word (or your definitive decision) will be very important, but consider treating it as the start of a process that will continue until January 13th.
