Mercury, the planet of communication and intellect, is in Ashwini from May 10th to 21st 2024, the nakshatra in Aries known for speed and Quick Action.

This is Mercury’s second pass through this asterism, after its recent retrograde transit from late March to early April, and altogether you may have rehearsed and weighed up an idea very thoroughly.

Mercury in Ashwini operates on instant decision-making, but all the facts may not have been available, and it’s been wise to defer a choice. By now you are properly informed and combine decisiveness with an intuitive certainty you are right, and you use your knowledge to get ahead of the competition.

This nakshatra’s lordship by the Ashvini Kumaras, the divine physicians, gives this transit an association with medicine and taking care of people, which for Mercury, may involve studying a healing or lifestyle path. Ashwini is known for fine personal qualities as well as fiery speech, and you can be wise and measured, with diplomatic skills to balance all options.

People appreciate your straightforward talk, as long as you keep it civilized – personal charm carries you a long way, and friends like being around your can-do mentality. The influence of smart, strategic Saturn on Mercury also gives you greater forethought and the ability to make a mature choice.

You have waited for your moment, and you are not going to rush anything now. From May 14th, you may need Ashwini’s courage to back yourself against opposing views or even criticism. Trust your own instincts on an idea and only share your thinking with those who are on your level.
