Mercury in Sagittarius

Mercury in Sagittarius in the Birth Chart

Mercury in Sagittarius indicates a mind concerned with encoding their brain at a broader level, whether in the form of greater spirituality, religion, philosophy, or other higher aspects of human beings. In Sagittarius, Mercury is in the sign of its opposite number and manifests itself with greater concern for attitudes than for facts.

The result of this is often constructive, providing a clearer understanding of people’s social motivations and actions. Even so, people with this positioning may not perceive the truth if they do not pay sufficient attention to the detailed information that is the basis of all logical thinking. We must remember that Sagittarius is in opposition to Gemini and at a 90º angle to Virgo, the signs ruled by Mercury.

While this is not an illogical position to be far from one’s home, it just does not make one propense to worry about very trivial things, with the banalities that most people with different positions focus on in their daily lives. In fact, it is an excellent placement for Mercury that makes those with this position in their charts see the big picture of things, as well as making them communicate with a greater amount of honesty and good humor.

Indeed, people with this positioning in their charts can have almost prophetic insights. This is because their concern with attitudes allows them to understand the information that will be important to everyone. In this way, they can almost foresee a “collective destiny”.

I speak what I think

With this Mercury position, speech is straightforward. They usually say exactly what they think about something. They demand intellectual freedom, but their ideas rarely diverge from traditional concepts or current social morals. Thus, they are generally respected people in the community.

But if social conformism is taken too far, it can lead to hypocrisy, as their moral standards are perhaps no better than other socially acceptable norms. At some point, they realize that an attitude is not necessarily right simply because it is popular or prevailing. At this point, whatever conformism they have may end and a deeper awareness may come to the forefront.

Intellectual authority

Individuals with this position often wish to enter institutions of higher learning or social control. It is not uncommon to see them in universities, churches, philosophical societies and government agencies. Their goal is to gain intellectual authority.

They like to consider themselves examples of conscience and truth. But whether they are or not depends on the aspects involved with Mercury and their life experience. They tend to preach sermons and give extensive opinions about things that they consider obvious to themselves but that may not be so clear to others. With that they run the risk of becoming pretentious in the eyes of other people.

Sometimes there is a preoccupation with distant goals and higher ideals, which can lead to those with this positioning not realizing what is under their noses. As understanding and tolerance are characteristics of the sign of Sagittarius, people with this position in their chart must learn that they are not always the owners of the truth, and it is necessary to at least listen to people more or teach in a more gentle or effective manner.
