Processing Your Emotions
Dealing with Your Inner Conflicts
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 your mind and your emotions are not aligned. You're feeling your emotions strongly, but knowing just what they’re saying will be difficult. This lack of clarity could manifest itself in your body as headaches and digestive issues. Also, nervous tension could have you talking too much in social situations.
At work and in the organization of your day-to-day life, you may find yourself not keeping track of time, missing appointments and falling behind on your tasks. Remember that a few dropped balls isn’t the end of the world, and getting excessively angry with yourself will only make it more likely that you’ll drop some more.
Watch out for overly emotionally tinged conversation. For example, you may find yourself adding layers of misdirected bitterness in your chats with friends of family. It’ll feel confusing and you may even feel out of control of your actions, but taking time out to process your emotions patiently will help bring all those obscured feelings into the light.
So sit down with a pen and paper or open a new document on your computer and put everything you’re feeling into words. If you’re not the writing type, find a friend who would be willing to help you process what’s going on inside you. Afterwards your mind will feel clearer and more under control.
