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.

This transit favors mental work and planning. You’ll be thinking clearly and perceiving the world accurately. You’ll feel logical and possess an intense attention to detail.
Youthful energy may make you feel restless at times, but with the right object of focus you should have enough discipline to use that energy productively. One such object of focus for this time would be doing some complex organizing.
All that clutter that you can’t seem to find a system to hold together… now’s the time to tackle it. Just be sure to put aside some time in which nothing can interrupt you. When you declutter your spaces you declutter your mind, and so this is how you can help your mental clarity continue beyond this transit.
During this transit you’ll have a strong intellectual curiosity. You’ll seek the stimulation of intellectual conversations. You’ll want to both learn from others and to expound your ideas to them.
Doing so will come quite naturally, as you’ll find yourself both listening and expressing yourself well, effortlessly breaking complex ideas down to the level of your audience. You’ll enjoy the back-and-forth of intellectual banter and love the challenge of thinking on your feet in such vibrant social environments.
With openness and focus, this transit could bring you to deeper understanding about the world and self.
