Transit Aspects

Astrological transits are a part of what is usually called predictive astrology, the claim of astrology to predict or forecast future trends and developments. Most astrologers nowadays regard the term 'prediction' as something of a misnomer, as modern astrology does not claim to directly predict future events as such. Instead it is claimed that an astrological pattern with regard to the future can correspond with any one of a variety of possibilities. What is in fact foretold is the trend of circumstances and the nature of the individual's reaction to the situation

Ceres Square Natal Mercury

This is a time when Ceres is provoking your natal Mercury in a battle of consciousness. If you have been staying busy in order to avoid your thoughts and feelings, this transit can give you the bitter medicine of slowed down solo time to get more in tune with your mind.

This transit is not a punishment; rather, it is an opportunity to remove distractions and stimuli that keep you constantly reacting rather than processing. This time can help you gain new insight about your needs.

When Ceres and Mercury do not easily mesh, it can be difficult to maintain a positive mental schema of self-image. On the one hand, the self-nurturing aspect can provide psychological nourishment – but on the other hand, the mind may be suspicious of whether unconditional love is deserved.

This is a great time to begin a quiet spiritual practice that connects you to your understanding of your higher self. Of course, this does not mean you must shut everyone out. Try to find a healthy balance between alone time and asking for assistance.
