Moon conjunct Mercury Transit

During the day in which the Moon is in conjunction with Mercury, people are more emotional when communicating and thinking about their problems, which means logic is not very strong during this period.

Many will have difficulties expressing themselves, but not when discussing their emotions. This is the reason why this transit is extremely beneficial for writing in journals, going to therapy, talking with friends, poetry or doing anything creative for that matter.

Many will not be able to think clearly during this transit, but if they’ve faced the same problems before, perhaps when they were in their parents’ home, they’ll manage to remember how they used to address the same issues and use the same methods again.

However, the way they’re looking at the world will be changed. Furthermore, they may still bear many influences from their past, so when deciding to reject a person, it may be because their mother or father is talking through them.

The best thing for people to do when the Moon is in conjunction with Mercury is to use all of their need for socializing and turn it into an outstanding written material for others to read or into a speech.

This is a good transit for expressing emotions, especially those related to romantic relationships. Those talking with their parents and relatives will feel nourished from an emotional point of view.

Their imagination will come to the surface and their ideas will flow without interruptions. They may be tempted to discuss more personal things and to share their secrets. In the same way, others will want to remember things from their past because they’d be able to easily gain access to their memory by communicating more and more, each day.

This period makes minds more receptive and able to think fast, so a lot of natives in the zodiac will be very busy and more curious during it.

However, they won’t be able to focus for too long on doing the same thing or on the same subject. Their ability to memorize things will increase, not to mention it will be easier for them to communicate with younger individuals.

Everyone will be honest about their feelings and very preoccupied with their personal life during this transit, seeking advice from others, regardless if they need it or not.

Being emotionally sensitive helps their intuition and psychic abilities, but more attention should be paid as feelings can easily cloud perceptions.

Those who are dealing with a lot of pressure will become moodier, the only way for them to deal with this issue being socializing. The more they’ll open and understand others, the more they’ll stabilize.

People going on dates with individuals they’re not so attracted to may change their mind about their future with their dates.

Everyone has to be in touch with themselves during this transit if the dating game is involved, so confusion and insecurities from the past should be completely eliminated.

Those who’ve dealt with the same things before will notice their intuition is stronger and that they’re more sensitive to their problems.

However, they shouldn’t trust their decisions too much because this period is pretty blurry and they may get the wrong impression of others.

The day when the Moon conjunct Mercury is happening is beneficial for dealing with emotional problems because self-expression is increased now and the past can come into the light with many lessons that have been already learned.

Old patterns and behaviors in relationships may surface, also insecurities from childhood, but there’s no one or nothing to stop people dealing with these issues successfully while this transit is in place.

As said before, personal talks and writing in journals are suggested activities for this period, also anything meant to put feelings out there in the open and to heal old wounds.

The energies of the Moon and the planet Mercury are perfect for emotional connections, but people should remember their logic isn’t too strong if these two celestial bodies are in conjunction. Big decisions should be postponed until the time becomes favorable for objectivity.
