Mercury, planet of communication and commerce, is in the nakshatra of Krittika across the signs of Aries and Taurus from June fifth until thirteenth 2023.

This transit comes at the end of Mercury’s extended period in Aries going back to early April, including its last retrograde phase, which has featured your most direct and impulsive thinking. Krittika’s symbol of a Flame or a Razor is ruled by Agni, the Sacred Fire, and its energy gives you mental zest, passion and spontaneity.

You put your plans and ambitions through a period of fiery scrutiny where only the best and most profitable ideas remain. Scalpel-like discrimination is excellent for research and development, where you cut away external information and get to the heart of the matter.

Insight comes from clearing away obstacles, and trusting your intuition gives you a real advantage in business – as well as in psychology and divination. Krittika’s Shakti, or special power, ‘To Burn’ may show sharp, stinging words, but also describes a kind of mental purification where you get important matters off your chest.

A fiery statement or debate sees provocative words exchanged, and an issue comes out into the open, where you see what needs to be done before moving on. Mercury in this assertive, rajasic nakshatra is ideal for writing a strong letter and campaigning, or speaking up publicly for a cause you believe in.

Moving from Aries into zodiacal Taurus by June 7th, Mercury now gives your ideas earthier and more practical form, where Krittika’s rulership of digestive fire includes consuming nutrients in the body, and absorbing information and other ‘mind food’.
