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 will likely be a busy time. You may have troubles with communication, and find colleagues and casual acquaintances you normally get along find with to be suddenly irritating.
There’ll be a lot going on in your mind.
You’ll find that there will be lots of things vying for your attention and you’ll find it difficult to figure out what you should focus on. And if you try to do everything, you’ll end up advancing in nothing.
This excess mental energy can also lead you to feel more anxious than usual. The small stuff will become big in your mind and you’ll be sweating it.
Avoid all this unproductive and unpleasant diffusion of your attention by channeling your energy into some concrete tasks. Nothing too grand or complex at this time – stick to the simple.
Those errands you tend to postpone and leave hanging over you for weeks… make a list of them and then knock them out one at a time. Doing the first few might be a challenge, but after you get into the rhythm it’ll be plain sailing.
When you’re done your mind will feel more clear and focused, and it’s likely that you’ll have come to new understandings about how you organize your life and direct your attention.
