Sagittarius is the sign of detriment for Mercury, meaning Mercury has difficulty expressing itself within this sign. Mercury wants to take in information and gather knowledge; in Sagittarius, however, Mercury can be caught up in the opinions of life rather than the facts.
Natives with this placement tend to be quite loquacious, without really having much to say. They might be regurgitating what they have heard on the news, read in a book, or from someone they spoke with. However, because Sagittarius is a bit overconfident at times, these natives may not fact-check those points, therefore believing their opinions and experiences are reality.
They also tend to proselytize to friends and family, more so if they are religious or have found a cause to fight for. These natives can make for great preachers and religious and spiritual speakers if they develop interest in those fields.
Other than this, people with natal Mercury in Sagittarius tend to enjoy amusements and sports. They probably know everything about their favorite team, down to statistics and player history. Depending on their chart, they also may turn out to be gymnasts, Olympic athletes, or track runners.
