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.

With a mind that is clear and sharp, this transit is a good time for thinking through issues that have been niggling away at you for a while. It’s the moment to bring them out into the light, to brainstorm out their elements and the relationships between those elements until you can see it all much more clearly.
You will feel a greater internal balance and a youthful mental energy awash with curiosity. So be sure to feed that energy with some intellectual stimulation.
Get your hands on a new book, or give your mind a complex task to accomplish, ideally one you haven’t tackled before. Making detailed plans for your future could be the perfect thing, as you will at this time be seeing things quite objectively.
If you have something important to say, now is the time to say it. It’s a transit that favors the communication of ideas.
You’ll find yourself able to communicate them well, taking the level of your audience into account. You’ll be able to get your point across, as long as you remember to give you audience time and space to take it in. Just because you may be seeing the idea objectively, doesn’t mean other people are.
