Mercury, planet of intellect and communication, is in Bharani nakshatra in the zodiacal sign of Aries on April 14th.

Bharani’s name means ‘she who bears’, its symbol is a Vulva and its meaning is bound up with giving birth, both as in bearing children and hatching a plan or creative thinking. Bright, inventive Mercury sees your creativity revolving around smart ideas, or a project which is your personal ‘brainchild’.

You are active and impulsive, and this nakshatra sees you doing battle for achievements, ambition and life itself, as well as giving birth to new plans, connections and business schemes. The Shakti of this asterism is the ‘power to carry things away’, in the sense of a spiritual journey or seeing something – or someone – being removed from your life.

This separation is an important experience, even though Mercury has the detachment and objectivity to spring back and stop you getting emotionally ‘carried away’. Try to keep a cool head.

Bharani’s ruler is Yama, Lord of Death, which points to transformation and the necessity to let one desire go before chasing after another. There is also the liberating sense of being released from attachment through achieving your goals and doing what is demanded.

This nakshatra’s association with birth also gives you a maternal and sympathetic quality which you can use to look after people and be hospitable, and someone may confide in you as you seem simply to understand.

Mercury associates in this transit with Rahu, the shadow ‘outsider’ planet, and your thinking may be exotic, inventive or even rather shocking to some people. You pick up a new idea and run with it and have an instinctive grasp of power and politics, along with a worldly-wise way of getting things done.
