Mercury conjunct Jupiter [27 Scorpio 49]
– October 29, 2018 (11:05 GMT)
It’s always helpful and potentially lucky when bounteous Jupiter sits next to one of the personal planets. This takes place today as there’s a Mercury/Jupiter conjunction at 27 degrees Scorpio.
Mercury rules the mind, correspondence, the written and spoken word, schooling. Jupiter rules new opportunity, growth & expansion, foreign connections, publishing, the Law, higher education. Put the two together and it’s an excellent date for the following:
- signing a contract
- being true to your word
- having faith
- thinking big
- offering advice
- an important conversation
- strategic moves
- going global
- gaining new qualifications
What’s interesting about today’s conjunction is that this is the last aspect before both planets change star sign. On October 31st, Mercury moves into Sagittarius. The following week, on November 8th, Jupiter makes its annual change of star sign into Sagittarius.
As we are still in Scorpio’s realm, Jupiter is continuing to dig up the dirt and reveal the truth of the darker side of life. We are starting to see more and more evidence of division in the world, peoples’ intolerance and in extreme cases, hatred, of others. Don’t be blind to what’s happening.
Once both Mercury and Jupiter move into Sagittarius, stand up for your beliefs and insist on a world that demands strong ethics and morals. We are moving from the hidden depths of Scorpio to the big-picture thinking of Sagittarius.
On a personal level, today’s Mercury-Jupiter connection is a little bit of luck, a gift from the cosmos. Take even a tiny step towards success.
