Mercury, your ruler, is a busy planet, moving from one aspect to the next rather quickly. Its conjunction with quirky Uranus on May 13 is of note, however, because of its stimulating effect. New thoughts and ideas are easily created, which can alter your daily routines and plans. Not one to move too quickly, you are a mutable sign, so you’re open to changes if they happen slowly.
Mercury’s trine to retrograde Saturn on the eighteenth is good for studying and catching up on things like paying the bills and signing contracts. You have stellar attention to detail, so if anything’s wrong, you’re going to catch it. Putting your mind to reaching goals has excellent results right now, even if it will be a while before you see your hard work pay off.
When Mercury spends time in Gemini, a curious air sign, on May 29, you’re excellent at trivia games and puzzles. Your brain works like a well-oiled machine, and your enthusiasm for learning new things puts you at an advantage over your competitors. The one drawback of this transit is your tendency to get distracted. When restlessness gets to be a problem, redirect your excess energy and attention to something productive.
