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.

At this time you will be more interested in beauty and art than usual. You may see aesthetically pleasing patterns in many things and find yourself appreciating music on a far deeper level.
You will be more receptive than usual, and that will be one manifestation of it. Other manifestations will be evident in how you relate to others. You may reach out for contact with old friends who have fallen off your radar, or you may feel open to having deep conversation with your loved ones, conversations in which you feel open to discuss your own personal flaws.
Dealing with financial and business matters are favored at this time, especially if they involve communicating your vision, or convincing others of your ideas. It the time to make that pitch you have been waiting so long to make. Watch out for people-pleasing tendencies, as they are strong at this time. Instead dare to stay true to your vision, and others will respect you more for it.
It is also a time for giving yourself a bit of pampering, for doing some shopping and enjoying a few indulgences. Be sure to keep it in line though. If you lose the balance in your energies during this transit, it may well take a long time to regain them.
