There can be problems in communication through a difference of opinion or difficulties that can result in a range of feelings from depression, pessimism and worry to a decision to sever one or more business relationships. With Mercury squaring the Midheaven, it doesn’t seem as if the native would have a good perspective of his/her situation to make wise business decisions. Pessimism can color one’s views to the most negative ways.
There is a benefit to this particular transit: You have the opportunity to defend your perspectives and to give yourself the chance test those perspectives. Some parts of your ideas may fall to the wayside, others will withstand the challenges. Be willing to allow these ideas to be tested and see what needs to be adjusted to make a stronger series of concepts. In the long run, it will help you.
This is how Stephan Forrest phrases it in our Transit and Progressions Report: “When Mercury mingles with Saturn, a thoughtful, reflective perspective enters the mind. This is a season of earnest study, of necessary but often rather plodding kinds of work. A precise, careful, conservative approach generally produces the best results. And, present cultural mythology aside, the cultivation of a degree of calculated pessimism often helps one evade costly blunders as these two planets interact.”
