Mercury is a fast moving planet that nevertheless has a powerful impact if you happen to be affected by it personally, and over the coming week Mercury will be trining first Pluto, and then Jupiter and Saturn. During this time you’re likely to be more open to other ways of looking at things, new solutions to old problems will pop into mind unexpectedly and there will be an increased desire to learn and to gather knowledge.
Mercury trine Pluto will particularly enhance your abilities as a powerful communicator and if your chart is triggered it’s likely your mind will feel sharper than usual, more focused. This is the kind of transit that allows for charismatic speeches, empowered manifestos and hard nosed strategies to be developed.
During Mercury trine Jupiter syncronicity is enhanced and you may unexpectedly bump into the right people at the right time. Finding the information you need will be easier too and others will be forthcoming with helpful ideas. Getting your own ideas across will come naturally as well but remember to remain open to other perspectives. The old saying that we have something to learn from everyone we meet is particularly true during Mercury trine Jupiter!
Expanding your view point through conversation is just one of the ways that that Mercury trine Jupiter can open your mind. Travel, reading and cultural exchange can also be very beneficial during this time and may lead to new opportunities and good fortune. Be sure to take advantage of every opportunity that comes your way, bearing in mind that sometimes we may not recognise them as such.
Jupiter is in strategic Capricorn, and with Mercury in Taurus it’s likely that the big picture view will hold your attention much more than the specifics. Allow yourself to enjoy this way of looking at the world and use it to strategic advantage. Planning is highly favoured during this time so take time to sit down with some paper and coloured pens and get mind-mapping!
Positive thinking comes naturally during Mercury trine Jupiter so this is also a great time to take up your wand of manifestation and make some magic happen in any area in your life that has been stuck or congested. Be careful however that your over-confidence doesn’t lead you to see only the positive side of a situation when there are issues that need to be addressed.
On the downside, Mercury trine Jupiter can make us prone to talking things up and to getting carried away promising things we may not be able to deliver. Be careful of exaggeration and slow down! There’s no need to convince everyone of the rightness of your view!
As Mercury moves out of Taurus and into it’s own sign of Gemini on 12 May, trining Saturn in Aquarius, many people will experience what could be called ‘strength of mind’. That is the capacity to stay true to your ideals and beliefs, even in the face of opposition. However, rather than being oppressive with your viewpoint, forcing your views onto others, you’re more likely to be diplomatic in your communications, whilst still being extremely persuasive.
With Mercury trining all three planets over the coming week this is a great energy to help restore harmony in relationships that have been stressed by COVID social restrictions. Being in isolation with someone can be take a huge toll on a relationship, as can being separated from those you would usually be in contact with. Take time to connect with those you love.
