For several days, work flows effortlessly from our minds to our industrious and nimble fingers. Discipline and attention to detail pay off big-time with splendid results, which we may or may not see right away.

Take a methodical approach to work tasks and utilize the pragmatic, practical qualities this influence promises. This is a great time to tackle any type of administrative work, because we feel much more organized and efficient than usual. Precision work is well indicated too, with our attentive focus on detail and minutiae.

Our perceptions are heightened and our reasoning powers are keen. Clarity of thought leads to clear and accurate communication, and improved perception helps us find and use details that have been overlooked. Studying and teaching go equally well at this time. After work, socialize with people who share your intellectual interests. The discussion will be splendid and informative.

If you have Mercury trine Saturn as a natal aspect:

You’re a paragon of virtue when it comes to your mental processes and work habits — you’re organized, efficient, and disciplined. From an early age you took to learning like a fish takes to water, and have always looked behind, underneath, and in between things to see how they’re put together and how they operate. This skill for detail and discrimination gives you a natural ability for fields like mathematics, engineering, and construction.

You’re able to manipulate tools and enjoy the process of actually building things as well as the planning stages. You’d make an excellent instructor or teacher, because you are able to organize your material and present it in a way that your students can grasp. Structured teaching environments are a good fit for you.

You particularly enjoy learning about traditional or classical elements in your field, and have an affinity for learning about old things (archeology? classical literature?). You may actually teach the elderly, or have an older mentor yourself. The stability of your thought processes and the patient way in which you both learn and teach pave the way for great respect from others.
