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 emotional state will cloud your ability to think clearly. Your mind will be highly subjective at this time, and there’s likely to be an emotional shading to all that you perceive. Negative comments from others will cut deep, so get ready to be strong.
Whether due to poor communication or poor perception, misunderstandings with others are likely, and you will probably feel frustrated with many people. You will feel a lack of clarity in your social interactions and may inadvertently express unconscious impulses and say things you do not mean.
If facing any difficult communication tasks like a presentation or high-level meeting, be sure to prepare well – now is not the time to improvise.
Be wary of making big personal decisions. If they can be postponed for after this transit, be sure to do so.
Overall it’s a difficult transit that exposes you to a lot of inner conflict. But you can get through it, and get through it much the wiser, if you manage to stay aware of what’s going on inside you.
Observe the inner conflict, and examine what it reflects about your day-to-day habits and attitudes. Perhaps you can come out of this facing life with a better mindset.
