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 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.

You may get a little overwhelmed during this time as your work obligations and home situation are likely to become quite hectic. Your to-do list will grow, and your diary will fill up, and you may face some unforeseen disruptions to your day-to-day activities. Overall, it will be a time in which it will be difficult to keep up with meetings, phone calls or other routine activities.
Therefore, it is important that you understand how much you can accomplish, so you don’t stretch yourself too far. Cut your cloth to measure. It is better to do a sustainable amount of work each day rather than doing so much one day that the next day you are too exhausted to be productive.
You will be more competitive with your communication and will find debates and disagreements about ideas to be enjoyable. Other people, however, may not appreciate your forceful opinions. They may not be seeing the debate as a lively back-and-forth game. Watch out for those who are strongly identified with their opinions, as they are likely to take your counterarguments as a personal attack.
At this time, you will quite often feel like you are in the right. That others can’t see the logic of your position will be very frustrating. But don’t fall into the trap of assuming yourself to be an unrecognized genius. Instead try to remain humble, patient and open to learning from others.
As you will have lots of excess energy, find a good outlet for it, such as outdoor sports or the gym. Then you can keep your mind and body in harmony, and your anxiety at bay.
