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 be feeling outgoing and playful. You will want to be social and get out in the world and have some fun.
However, you may face some challenges within your personal relationships, and they are likely to be communication related. Expect to have misunderstandings and for ambiguous statements to be taken the wrong way. But don’t worry, it is a good time to discuss the problems or issues you may be having. Sit down and make your communication clear and heartfelt, and you and your partner should be able to deal with the conflict and maybe even make your bond stronger.
Socially, too, you may have communication difficulties, you may say the wrong thing or commit another faux pas.
Financial matters could also be a source of frustration, and at this time you are likely to show poor judgement when faced with an issue. It is best to delay decision making until this transit has passed and you have a clearer perspective.
The urge to enjoy the pleasures of life will be strong at this time, and there is no reason to not give in to it and take it easy. However, be careful. You will be prone to self-indulgence, so stay aware of when you should turn off Netflix and put the ice-cream back in the freezer.
