Mercury, the planet of communication, typically spends three-ish weeks in one sign, but it’s spent way! too! much! time! in Scorpio. Mercury’s been in the fixed water sign since September (apart from a brief dip into Libra during its retrograde in October). If you’re #overit and ready to get out of this moody, intense (but also mysterious and sexy) mindset, you’re in luck! On December 1, Mercury flies out of Scorpio and into the mutable fire sign, Sagittarius. Fire signs Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius are benefiting the most from this transit, while mutable signs Gemini, Virgo, and Pisces are getting most of the action (possibly too much!).
The planet of communication is all about your intellectual side. It’s precise, calculating, organized, and great at picking apart the small details of a situation. Sagittarius is the least precise of all the signs—they’re all about the “big picture” and don’t pay close attention to the details. That, my friends, is why Mercury is said to be debilitated in Sagittarius—it just isn’t equipped to do its job efficiently in this sign. Or at least that’s what most astrologers would say!
But there are actually a ton of benefits that come along with Mercury in Sagittarius. You’re less critical and harsh, you’re more optimistic and adventurous, and you just don’t GAF. You’re able to set bold goals and work your ass off while you pursue them. Even if you don’t get exactly what you want, you’re still able to have a good time and grow in the process.
However, if you’re really, really a perfectionist (earth signs, I’m talking about you), this could be a pretty troublesome transit. Mercury also rules communication, and since it’s debilitated in Sagittarius, there can be a sense of disconnect with others. Sagittarius loves, loves, loves to talk, but a big part of communicating is listening. If you don’t pay attention to what others have to contribute, then you’ll squander all the potential that comes with this transit.
Mercury in Sagittarius + Sagittarius season + Mars in Aries = some super spicy astro-weather. Fire signs are all about creativity, motivation, and self-expression, so put yourself out there! This astrology is a major upgrade from all of the tumultuous astro-weather we’ve been facing for the past…forever…so enjoy it!

The world is really yours rn, Aries! All of this spicy Sagittarian energy is harmonizing beautifully with your fiery Aries vibe, and it’s putting you in a great mood. Mercury’s helping you to live out the saying “you learn something new every day.” Keep an eye on your inbox—important info re: higher education and/or travel is incoming. Expect plenty of opportunities to learn, grow, and become a more well-rounded person!
Mercury in Sagittarius is great for you, Taurus, for two reasons: First, it’s helping you connect with your S.O. in more intimate, intense, passionate ways (yes, including in the bedroom). This is a great time for the “What are we?” convo or just getting better at reading your boo’s body language (*wiggles eyebrows*). Second, you’re feeling more ~investigative~. You’re exploring a variety of subjects, and it’s supes easy to find a new interest that truly fascinates you—and once you find it, you want to completely devour it. This is a splendid time to dabble in occult or mystical practices, so if you’ve been thinking about learning more about tarot, numerology, palm reading, or (my favorite) astrology, dive in!
If you read your Sagittarius season horoscope, you already know that Sagittarius season = cuffing season for you. Now, Mercury in Sag is reinforcing that concept a ton. Not only are you connecting with your S.O./crush/squad, but you’re also having a blast starting new relationships! It’s a great time to turn a casual friend into a BFF, meet a new crush, or totally change up your weekly date night with your S.O. (even if you can’t exactly take a casual international vacay right now, you can at least switch up where you order take-out from). You love to learn, and you love being around people (even on Zoom), so you’re having an amazing time “exploring”!
Right now, you’re focusing on your life at work and your day-to-day routine. If you’re feeling crummy, 1) check it out with your doc, and 2) reevaluate the ways you take care of your wellbeing—physical, emotional, and mental—every day. Eat a vegetable, go on a walk, set some screentime limits so you can go to sleep earlier, or just spend a couple days reorganizing your life, Marie Kondo style. As you start living a healthier, more productive lifestyle, you’re certain to start feeling much, much better!
To understand the vibe that all this Sagittarian cosmic action has, play Sagittarian Miley Cyrus’s song “Can’t Be Tamed.” Mercury in Sagittarius is activating your chart’s zone of romance, sex, and fun. You’re playing by your own rules, feeling confident, getting your flirt on, and living your life how you want. Enjoy a more confident attitude, a more optimistic outlook on life, and a lotttt of hotties in your DMs!
This transit is a little weird for you, Virgo. Mercury is your ruling planet, so whenever it changes signs, connects to another planet, or goes retrograde (ugh), you feel it, hard. Mercury in Sagittarius is extroverted and adventurous, but in your chart, it’s activating the fourth house, aka the most introverted part of your chart. It governs life at home, family connections, and the past. Right now, you’re exploring all those themes and getting very in touch with your deepest emotions. Sagittarius is the most growth-oriented sign, but instead of going out and adventuring, you’re focused on inner growth.
Sagittarius is a fire sign, and you’re an air sign, so you’re naturally compatible…which means Mercury is in Sagittarius can be a whole lot of fun. This is, above all else, a busy time for you. No, you’re not stuck at the (probably virtual) office or running around doing errands 24/7—this upbeat, active vibe is coming from how poppin’ your (also probably virtual) social life is! You’re the sign of relationships, so connecting with anyone tends to be a good time. Over the next few weeks, expect tons of fun convos, Zoom hangouts, and new connections sliding into your DMs!
Right now, you’re focusing on your values and your valuables. You’re examining your financial sitch, but also your own self-worth and self-image. These two themes suggest that this is a busy time at work, so keep pushing and do your best! After slaying on the job and getting all your sh*t done, not only will you get some more $$ in your bank account (financial worth), but the boost of confidence you will send your self-esteem through the roof (self-worth)!
HBD, Sagittarius bb! Mercury in your sign is helping you to amplify and express aaalllll of the traits that people love so much about you. Your sense of humor = on point. Getting your flirt on = easier than ever. Speaking your mind (your favorite thing to do) = a breeze. Just remember than communication is a two-way street. Make sure you’re listening as much as you’re talking, or no one will want to hear what you have to say!
Mercury in Sagittarius is activating your twelfth house, which governs isolation and the completion of cycles, so you can kiiiiind of forget about all of the upbeat, extroverted Sag vibes in the stars right now. Instead, you’re getting a ton of alone time and investigating your past. Former projects, jobs, and/or relationships are all becoming relevant in your life again, and you’re dealing with them, finding closure, and clearing out all the clutter from your life. This way, once Capricorn season comes around, you’ll be baggage-free!
All this Sagittarian energy is helping you become even more social than normal—and you’re loving it! You’re able to add a few new friendly faces to your squad, turn your buddies into your besties, and make sure your crew is full of people who want to love, support, and uplift you. For the next few weeks, you’re fine-tuning your crew. You’re learning who your true ride-or-dies are, strengthening your connections with them, and distancing yourself from crappy friends. For every person you kick to the curb, you can expect a better new friend to take their place!
Some might say that you’re directionless, just floating wherever life takes you (I try to be nice and just say y’all Pisces are really ~dreamy~), but Mercury in Sagittarius is helping you prove the haters wrong! You’re making serious money moves right now. Your boss is watching you closely, and it’s a great time to start mentioning that raise, bonus, or promotion you want/deserve. Keep up the good work, and you can reach some HUGE goals over the next few weeks—but if you slack off, you’ll be recognized for all the wrong things!
