Spider Rock, Canyon de Chelly, Arizona – William Lee
According to Navajo tradition, Spider Rock’s second spire is home to Spider Woman, the creator of the free world. The the holy ones advised Spider Woman that she had the capabilities of weaving a map of the universe and the geometrical patterns of the spirit beings in the night sky. She was first to weave her web of the universe and taught Diné (Navajo) to create beauty in their own life and spread the “Beauty Way” teaching of balance within the mind, body, & soul.

Expansion of the mind, broadening of the horizons – the brain set loose to wander, roam and philosophize freely. Perceptions are laid back, casual – not rigidly fixed like while gripped by the Scorpion.
Mercury here travels far and wide gleaning experience from diverse sources across the globe – the natural desire to SEE and UNDERSTAND underscores the natural Mercurial curiosity. The student also teaches; the healer is also healed.
Reading, study, teaching and tapping the enormous potential of the higher mind is what Mercury in Sagittarius offers. This is also the house of spirit, faith and religions – here Mercurial perceptions are more open to others. Sharing stories and impressions of different cultures is fascinating to the higher mind.
Mercury here races into hopeful territories where all decisions turn out for the best. Forever optimistic, the changeable nature of the trickster works well in the mutable sign of the centaur. Lively mind meets hot to trot to travel and explore the unknown.
The Road goes on Forever and the Party Never Ends with a Sagittarius Mercury.
One thing to be wary of – hoof in mouth disease.
Sagittarians are famous for it.
If I had a dollar for every time I have said, “I can’t believe you just said that !” to one of my Sag friends – I would be rolling in $$$. Seriously, they just blurt out whatever is on their minds in any and all types of crowds. Hilarious mostly, they really are more fun than a barrel of monkeys – and game for just about anything.
Mercury in Sagittarius SEES the larger patterns at work in the world, and of course, can not resist making hilarious commentary on their observations. Mercury here likes to broadcast, publish, and reveal their news ala the comedic town crier.
Note: If you rile them, they can pontificate profusely from the tallest soapbox in town !
Fair Warning !
Sag is the sign of the sage, Mercury here will soak up knowledge like a sponge !
GIDDY UP !
