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.

Mercury Opposition Natal Sun


This is a very mentally active time and one in which you may find yourself involved in exchanges of ideas. However, as during this time your ego is in conflict with your communication, some conflicts may arise.
So beware of coming in with intense energy. Focus on the issues, not on your ego, and you should be able to avoid stepping on other people’s toes.
And then you can learn from others, which this transit is well suited for. When you listen, you can bypass the conflict between ego and communication.
One of the reasons people tend not to listen that much or that well is that listening takes more energy than speaking. Luckily this is a transit of high energy. It’s the most beneficial thing to focus on at this time.
Expect to find some wrenches in the gears of your plans. Bureaucratic mishaps and failures of organization are likely, but whatever inconveniences you suffer as a result, make use of them, see them as an opportunity.
Your flight is delayed for three hours? Is this not a great opportunity to catch up on your reading?
The alternative is sulking about your misfortune for three hours. When life gives you lemons, make lemonade.
