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.

At this time you will be more inclined to seek pleasure rather than try to get things done. Your social skills will feel sharp and you will want to get out in the world and put them to use. If you want to direct them toward a professionally productive end, networking would work very favorably at this time. Otherwise, be among your friends or put yourself in situation in which you have the chance to meet new ones.
While alone, enjoying music and reading is very much favored at this time, and you are likely to feel a greater appreciation for the beauty of what you are taking in.
Financial opportunities may well come your way, provided your eyes are open to seeing them. You will also feel an increased sense of creativity, so be sure to spend time exploring all the possibilities offered by this opportunity, and then maybe you can grow it into so much more than that which it first appears to be. As influencing people with language is also favored at this time, here could be a situation in which you put that skill to use.
Remember to give yourself some time off during this transit. Relaxing and pampering yourself for a while could bring benefit that will be felt long after this transit has passed.
