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

Sun Transits

The Sun is the source of all energies. These energies stimulate the activities of the houses occupied by the transiting Sun and reinforce or weaken the planetary effects, depending on the Sun's aspect to the natal planet. When the Sun transits an inner planet, it may trigger a dormant aspect between that inner planet and a slower moving outer planet. If a planet is being transited by another planet when it is being transited by the Sun, the effect of the transit is strengthened.

Sun Square Natal Mercury

One thing for sure is that this will not be a boring time. You'll be mentally active and many ideas will come to you quickly and in rapid succession. So many ideas, in fact, that you may have difficulty concentrating on the immediate, mundane tasks in front of you. You’ll likely feel your mental energy scattered across a wide area of multiple interests. This scattered energy can feel both exhilarating and overwhelming, urging you to find balance between your passionate pursuits and daily responsibilities.

During such times it’s easy to get overloaded and respond by clinging rigidly to opinions that you normally hold with flexibility and detachment. That would give you a shallow and temporary sense of stability, but in order to grow through this time it’s best to not try to deny the chaos, but rather accept and learn from it. Observe it shifting your mind this way and that, and you could gain great insights into the normal actions of your subconscious. Embrace this mental whirlwind as an opportunity to explore diverse perspectives, even those that challenge your usual way of thinking. How do you feel when your beliefs are questioned or when you are exposed to new ideas?

In work, you may be tested for the clarity of your thinking and be forced to prove your intentions. There is also potential for conflicts with authority figures. Instead of going into knee-jerk self-defense mode, try welcoming feedback from anyone giving it. It might hurt your ego, but a clear picture of how others perceive you is invaluable for your future professional endeavors. Consider this feedback as a mirror reflecting areas for growth and improvement. What can you learn about yourself from the perspectives of others, and how can this knowledge help you evolve in your career and personal life?
