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.

This is a good time to focus on your business goals and ambitions. Examine the targets you are currently aiming for... are they still the things you want to hit?
You will be more critical and objective at this time, so use that energy to unsentimentally assess where you are going with your life, and to consider if you want to go some place different. Get into all the details, leave no stone unturned. You will have the mental energy to really get into it.
Along with your increased rationality at this time comes a more judgmental attitude. This might come across when communicating your ideas to others, and if it does it will hurt their reception.
Watch out for rigidity in your thinking, and you should be able to avoid the pitfalls of judgementalism. Keep your thoughts swaying to the rhythm of consciousness around you, instead of having then trying to fit inconjunct pegs in round holes.
Being more open minded enough to ask yourself what if other ideas could be true and then let the implications of that affect you. It takes more than open-mindedness; it also takes a certain courage.
You may find, at this time, that you are not on the same page as the authority figures in your life. But with the same tuning your mind in to what is going on around you, you should be able to avoid this causing major conflict.
