Mercury, planet of thought and speech, enters Ardra nakshatra, in the sign of Gemini on June 27th until July 3rd 2023.

Ardra’s symbol, a Teardrop, immerses you in empathy, anger and deep talk, where sharing ideas or just simple conversation has a strong sentimental undertow. This nakshatra’s ruler, Rudra the Storm God, symbolizes a downpour, with inner tempests and psychic upheaval sitting side-by-side with a light and witty mentality.

This transit is good for research and investigation where you are emotionally invested and have powerful insight. You can be detached and positively clinical, or explore an uncomfortable area that other people tend to shy away from. In its own sign, Mercury has curiosity and clarity of mind, where you can dive into a subject and become an instant expert.

Ardra’s Shakti, or special power, for Effort makes this an excellent time to put hours in pursuit of your studies or a task that needs completing to deadline. One minute you are completely rational, the next overwhelmed with emotion, and the slightest trigger can tip your feelings over.

Yet you are both sympathetic and able to find the right words for a friend in need, while also having inner steel for a tough task. In a work crisis, you get credit for keeping a cool head and removing a problem with professionalism, apparently without a second thought.

Take care that the contrast between your mind and emotions doesn’t confuse people who misunderstand your widely diverging responses – this is the classic Gemini duality. The Full Moon of July 3rd brings this transit to a climax, when you can let your composure slip for a well-earned moment of escape.
