Nazaudy, a spark in your curious mind

Mercury in Sagittarius

Freedom of thought is the main characteristic of those born with Mercury in Sagittarius. You are respectful of freedom of opinion and of expression, and you communication means open-mindedness above all. You reject all forms of sectarianism and prejudices, and no one respects laws and social structures better than you. Relentlessly, you strive to enlarge your horizon and are known for your interest in other people's views, as well as for your healthy curiosity about others that may border on indiscretion. You communicate in an optimistic and forward-looking manner. You have vision, and your ideas are generally very big, but it’s probably wise to use tact when you see all the little holes in your arguments. Not always thrilled about focusing on details, Mercury in Sagittarius people prefer to expand their mental horizons through thinking and reading about larger subjects, like philosophy and religion. Your thirst for knowledge can be insatiable but you have little patience with dry academics or cold, hard facts, being yours a restless intellect. The best way for you to learn is when you are given the freedom to think for yourself, when you are truly interested in the topic at hand, and when the things you’re learning are fun. Your optimism is both your strength and your weakness. After a conversation with you, other people will probably feel stimulated and invigorated, because you make life a little better for others due to your positive and irremediable optimistic outlook, even though sometimes that optimism can be a little far from reality. With Mercury in Sagittarius you defend justice and freedom religiously, and generally have a whole set of principles that you follow, or at least defend in conversations.

Mercury in Sagittarius


The planet Mercury describes your relations, your communication skills and the way you relate to the external world. Organisation is a must for those born with Mercury in Sagittarius. You do appreciate lots of room, or at least the illusion of space, especially when you’re working, studying, or thinking. So, your office or personal space might look alright at first glance. Conversations with Mercury in Sagittarius are always interesting, and other can’t help but admire your enthusiasm. At your worst, you take to preaching instead of conversing, which may not be intentional, and can get you into all kinds of trouble nonetheless. You also tend to speak up your mind regardless and have no problems on saying offensive things in front of people and stand by your statements despite any outcry. A good debate is hard for you to pass up. Mercury in Sagittarius natives think they are very open-minded–and they are in spots–but they can come across as quite moralistic at times too. You’ll be the first to spot bias or prejudice in everyone else’s communication, but you can be a little blind to your own bias, and you’re not always the best listeners, either, and not adapted at picking up the subtleties in your conversation. Bluntness of speech is a trademark of Mercury in Sagittarius, and you tend to get impatient with indirectness and beating around the bush. You are a mastermind that can take a concept and turn it inside out, and a sure-fire way to get under your skin is to play mind games with you; you may not always pick up on the game-playing at first, but when you do, they won’t be amused.
