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.

Your intellect will be quite sharp at this time, and you’ll be able to clearly formulate ideas that you normally would have trouble with. You’ll be more curious than usual and interested in all that is new and different. You’ll find your speech is rich and fluid and your reasoning sharp.
So sharp, in fact, that the flaws in the reasoning of others will be maddeningly obvious to you. Try not to get argumentative, nobody likes smart people who need to show it off.
Rather than toppling flawed arguments, it’s a great time to use your mind to build. So talk to people who you’d like to start a project with. You’ll likely find them receptive to your enthusiasm.
But with the spontaneity you’ll be feeling it could instead be a good time to go it alone, to blast through all the usual inner resistance and start a project yourself. You can always add the other people later on.
Look into your heart and you'll know which option is best.
In your personal life it’s a good time to talk with the people you normally have trouble communicating with. Create a nice setting for it and perhaps old misunderstandings can be forgotten about and old friendships restored.
