Mercury Conjunct Natal Ascendant

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

Mercury Transits

Mercury spends about a week in each natal house. During that time it affects your mental outlook, communications with others, and urges to take trips. When Mercury is in retrograde motion during its transit it may introduce delays in the affairs under its influence.

This time can get a lot more hectic as you may have more errands, phone calls or meetings than usual. Even if you don’t have so many obligations you want to do more, and you should have more physical energy available. Good communication is important so strive to make yourself heard and understood. You are charming and more people will be drawn to you. People are fascinated by your command of language and effective delivery. Your thinking is clear and organized, and you can defend your perspective and direct your actions in a productive way. You will not be afraid to speak up when you know you are right, but the fact is that you aren't always right. You may be much more preoccupied with yourself than usual.
