Mercury is Squaring Saturn – A Time to Think….Then Speak

  Mercury is making a disharmonious aspect, a square, to Saturn. The positive aspect is that it brings Saturn’s love of form, structure, commitment, discipline, gravity, and focus to our communicative abilities (Mercury’s purview.) This is the time for negotiations, choosing words carefully and negotiating with care. Saturn loves to bring things in perspective and put an end on them.
