Mercury Opposite Saturn TransitMercury opposite Saturn natal brings intelligence and wisdom, but also great frustration and sadness. The frustration comes from an inability to connect to others at a personal level. The reason is a lack of communication skills. Problems with hearing or a poor attention span lead to words being misinterpreted. So you often think the worst or believe that others are disagreeing with you or nagging you.

Frustration comes not only from poor communication skills but also an inability to share your knowledge in an understandable way. Your speech may seem dull and boring, or too negative or technical. But there is hope because Saturn is a late bloomer. The constant struggle to be heard and taken seriously can result in a mastery of communication, more often with the written word but sometimes the spoken word.

The Internet offers a wonderful chance to communicate more effectively where extra time can be taken to fully understand and reply to messages. You also have a talent for understanding symbols and the deeper meaning of images.

In general, negative thinking can lead to sadness and depression. When growing up, you may be subject to demeaning or harsh words from a parent, usually your father, from teachers and other authority figures. Such negative conditioning can cause you to assume people are criticizing you later in life, even when in reality, they are not.

A conscious effort is required to rewire your brain with positive affirmations. This does need continual hard work, as does practicing to communicate clearly. Otherwise, depression and the wrong handling of matters will continue to cause frustration and lack of opportunity. Others would then continue seeing you as lonely, sad, abrupt or mean.

There is the possibility of some bad news or very challenging situations arising, especially if you have been neglectful in some way earlier. However, it is likely that you will be seeing the worst in every situation. This is not a day for making important decisions, especially about relationships. Also, avoid signing contracts or making big investments. You may have a critical eye but could also make mistakes.

  1. Yes ofcourse. It is so depressing when people take your spoken word for granted and then you need to wage a war in writing.
    This has always been the case with me Jamie. Maybe this configuration makes us inrovert because people don’t take you seriously and that leads you to depression and sadness.
    I have mercury opposite Saturn and have to face this challenge day in and out. Professionally I have commanded the written communication but still have to push through for things get done.
    Thanks for the insight.

    • I’m finding it easier to get things done, now aged late forties. Antidepressant medication is a must for me and I doubt I will ever stop it.

      • Can I say I admire your site, and accurate interpretations. However I have an in-law who thought they would always be needing to rely on anti-depressants to safeguard themselves and those closest, and now they are undertaking treatment to become free of them completely, with the aid of a supportive partner too…Please be open to the future as a gift too. It is a wonderful and serendipitous – faith restoring, and possible.

        • I always keep an open mind Eve but I have been doing so well for a while now so I think I have the right mix.

  2. Have this aspect. Add to the mix aT square to the Moon, but I have some good aspect to soften it all. Uranus sextile natal Saturn and trine natal Mercury

    • That great that Uranus break up the restricting nature of Saturn. Do you think it helps at all in expressing your feelings?

      • Yes, I find that I express myself better through writing. All my teachers in school said I have a talent for crafting perfect essays.Speaking though an issue, I sometimes feel that people do not care for what I think, wether that is true or not. Also, I have amazing memory and attention to detail

  3. Hi Jamie!

    Saturn transit is trining my natal mercury, so could this minimise the impact of Mercury transit opposite Saturn transit?
    I need to send some official papers so wondering if I should wait until Monday or I should use the energy of the new moon despite this opposition, what are your thoughts?
    Thanks!
