Finding Fascination in Many Things
Learning from Your Inner Tension
Being Aware of Your Projections
Controlling Your Impulsivity
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.

At this time, you will feel a certain tension gnawing away inside you. You may end up projecting it outwards and getting into arguments just for the sake of relieving it by giving it an expression. To avoid this, try and stay aware what’s going on in your subconscious mind. If you don’t, you’ll be its puppet, never knowing what is pulling your strings.
It’s not a good time for negotiation, or any work that involves subtle mirroring and empathy – you’ll feel too impulsive and impatient. But when working with others try to be as diplomatic as possible, as small disagreements are otherwise likely to escalate into full-blown conflicts.
You’ll feel a lot of energy but a lack of ability to focus that energy. Thoughts will rush past you faster than you can make out what they are, and the willpower necessary to gather your cognitive forces will seem to be just beyond your grasp.
But perhaps willpower isn’t what you should be reaching for. It is a finite resource at the best of times, after all. Instead, look for what’s fascinating in that which is outside yourself – everything has something in it with the potential to fascinate – and then your focus will be effortless.
