Mercury conjunct Saturn Transit
The Mercury conjunct Saturn transit is known to make people more criticizing in the way they’re thinking, meaning they should seriously work with this when being challenged from a mental point of view. Without training their intelligence, the mind of natives can dwell on the negative side, which can have them stuck in a rut.

During the Mercury conjunct Saturn transit, many are feeling like they’re engaged in something serious and that they need to focus or to keep everything logical.
They can deal with any challenge and still keep some sort of perspective while moving forward. This is happening in such a contradictory manner because they’re only seeing what’s negative and the problems when it comes to the businesses they’re dealing with.
For as long as Mercury is in conjunction with Saturn, many may feel the pressure of having to be meticulous and straight to the point, so they are, but at the same time, they’re watching to have some illusory expectations from themselves and to be too self-appreciative. They can as well have the most serious discussions with powerful people and bosses.
They shouldn’t worry too much while this transit is in place, which is only for one day, because the next one will be clearer and they’ll be more realistic when it comes to appreciating what they’ve accomplished.

Strangely enough, when people are not performing their duties, their energy is getting consumed more easily.
Many people can feel like they no longer have any worry and that they should take care of the problems they’ve been reluctant towards. More than this, the Mercury conjunct Saturn transit is perfect for planning and taking care of any endeavor.
Others should make lists with what they need to get done and after complete their projects. Organization and priorities are important, not to mention the list should be kept in an important location.
The following months of this transit are usually keeping people on track for many months after. When it comes to addressing how heavy this placement is, positive ways of thinking and working the brain towards important tasks and routines can be very important.
This time is requiring heavy concentration, a lot of patience and judgments to be sound. Businesses and working with papers should be in favor. When it comes to common sense, paying attention to details and thinking long-term, this period is perfect for making plans on the long-term.
Any serious discussion when it comes to how hard life is can have good results, for example, if people are talking about the abused and those who are not being favored by others. Some may decide to act as mentors and many may come to them for advice.
This period is meant to promote serious talks and to avoid superficiality. Whereas some may feel restricted in their movements and limited to their learning, they can focus on what’s important and benefit from it.
