“If your mind carries a heavy burden of the past, you will experience more of the same. The past perpetuates itself through lack of presence. The quality of your consciousness at this moment is what shapes the future.” Eckhart Tolle


Old Trees In Autumnal Forest

With “mental” Mercury conjunct “cautious” Saturn, today, there can be a tendency to dwell on “what’s not working” – or what could go wrong – instead of focusing on what’s going smoothly, or on the mend. Albert Einstein once said, “Problems cannot be solved with the same mindset that created them.” Meaning that if we’re going to fix or resolve things, we must first find a way to expand our consciousness.

Interestingly, Einstein, a Pisces Sun with a Sagittarian Moon, was born with his natal Mercury in a tight conjunction with Saturn in “pioneering” Aries. Mercury-Saturn aspects, on the plus side, can often confer great powers of concentration, or allow us to think very deeply about things, as it is the nature of Saturn to narrow or refine our focus.

Additionally, Mercury-Saturn can also make us more aware of our distinctness, or separateness, from others; Saturn energy is naturally associated with a desire to set boundaries around ourselves. Also, on the shadow side, we’re potentially more sensitive, now, to perceived hurts or slights from others. Choosing our words more carefully, today, so as not to unduly offend others, might be a very good idea. Also, if we can put in an encouraging word, if we’re around someone who’s down, that may also go a long way in helping to turn their day around. While Mercury-Saturn can often incline some of us to want to be alone, now, with our own thoughts, for others it can be a time when serious discussions are broached.

Mercury conjunct Saturn is an excellent period to work on projects that require attention to detail, or research. This influence can also be favorable for studying history, with Saturn ruling the past.

Question for Today: What problem in your life, now, may actually be a “gift in disguise?”
