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.

During this transit your mind will feel clear and focused. You’ll reason well and be able to discern the logic underlying arguments with an uncommon clarity.
But rather than use this to critique, to knock down arguments you don't agree with, use it to improve, to add to the arguments at play, and you’ll be appreciated for it.
You’ll find yourself communicating well with people. In negotiations you’ll state your case clearly and objectively, and they should therefore work out quite well.
Just remember to listen as well as you speak, as nobody who doesn’t feel heard will feel inclined to come to an agreement. Use your communication abilities to paraphrase what your interlocutor says, and success is as close to guaranteed as is possible.
The same could be said for group discussions. Use your mental clarity to see find the idea that unites all the ideas being thrown around. It’s both the most desired and the most difficult thing for any group discussion to arrive at, but with focus and openness, you can be the one to bring it.
You’ll find yourself able to quickly knock out those boring tasks you normally hate. Taxes, paperwork, organizing the files in your computer… you’ll get a buzz of energy going and even quite enjoy doing these tasks of nightmares past.
