Mercury Trine Saturn

Mercury Trine Saturn Natal

This combination symbolizes an easy harmony in the ability to understand the subtle fluidity of boundaries and structures, and thus grants the ability to manipulate them over time. Mental discipline comes easy and once an idea has taken hold the mind works on it until it is thoroughly understood. The correspondence between microcosm and macrocosm is intuitively grasped, and this means even large complex structures can be reduced to smaller versions of themselves such that they function almost as a symbol or seed. This makes repeating successes at different scales of both size and time also possible, such that one essential success becomes many, through concepts like franchising and syndication. The only danger of this placement is a fixation on materiality, as a loss of contact with the flow of spiritual energy can cause the gifts to harden and become brittle.

Mercury Trine Saturn Transit

This aspect suggests an easy opportunity to harmonize larger structures with original or essential ideas and symbols. A return to fundamentals restores the flow to stuck situations. This is generally a quick transit that comes around twice a year, but as soon as every six to seven years or more often at longer thirteen-year intervals, Mercury makes a series of three trines with the middle one occurring during its retrograde. This is a pretty significant transit that suggests adjustments to one’s inner sense of authority, boundaries, and structure. If you have given away your power or authority to another or have become lost within a labyrinthine system, this suggests an easy way out by returning to the core of the essential self. Conversely, if you are having trouble entering large or complex structures, then focus, simplicity, and authenticity are the key.
