“You ought to be able to explain why you’re taking the job you’re taking, why you’re making the investment you’re making, or whatever it may be. And if it can’t stand applying pencil to paper, you’d better think it through some more. And if you can’t write an intelligent answer to those questions, don’t do it.” Warren Buffet.
Billionaire Warren Buffet, an analytical Virgo, has his Mental Mercury in Balancing Libra in a tight square to “Show Me The Money” Saturn, in Achievement Capricorn, the sign of the goat, which Saturn also rules. This influence gives him a tendency to want to weigh everything very carefully, characteristically checking ideas and plans for their level of utility, before rendering a decision or verdict, or embarking on a particular course of action. Saturn signifies both “responsibility” and “the practical urge.” With Mercury-Saturn, we know to be “fully accountable” for our thoughts and ideas.
Buffett’s more “pragmatic orientation” is also a good preview of the general mindset that we can expect to adopt with Mental Mercury entering Saturn’s Utilitarian Capricorn, November 30th through December 18th. (Mercury enters Capricorn at 7:11 pm EST on Nov. 30th.)
Mercury signifies our thinking and communication. It also rules transportation.
Mercury in Saturn’s native homestead is practical, cautious, focus and disciplined. Because Saturn also speaks to us of our fears, on the shadow-side, Mercury here can initially make us more fearful and worried, until we have our plans and strategies carefully in place, at which time we tend to feel more confident and in control.
Too, with “Karma Lord” Saturn’s inherent penchant for wanting to “call the shots,” Mercury in Capricorn tends to make us want to communicate in an authoritative manner. We want to be taken seriously, and want to give the impression that we know what we’re talking about. Mercury in Capricorn is also a time to evaluate, and if warranted, put into motion the futuristic ideas and inspirations we received while Mercury was stationed in Dreamer Sagittarius.
(Mercury will be retrograde December 10th through December 30th. It will also leave Capricorn and re-enter Sagittarius on December 18th, where it will stay until January 13th of 2011, at which time it goes back into Capricorn, staying there until February 3, 2011. Mercury retrograde is a period when we review and or revise our decisions, taking action on them when Mercury once again goes direct.)
