Mercury, planet of thought and communication, is in Pushya within the sign of Cancer from July 18th until 24th 2022.
Pushya is a highly auspicious nakshatra for most life purposes, giving you a generous mentality and the promise of peace, prosperity and the finest things in life. Your attention turns to security and providing for your family and loved ones, where Mercury gives you the ability to connect with a new and supportive circle of people.
This asterism is symbolized by an Udder which shows a nurturing, serene and generous temperament, and the promise of attracting good fortune.
You may be working in an area associated with food, drink, care or hospitality, and are drawn into influential circles. Mind-food and mental stimulation appear from the most mundane materials and your thinking is inspired, or else you even find a sympathetic boss or benefactor to support your ideas.
Pushya is ruled by Brihaspati – Jupiter – so there is also a great spiritual tendency where you explore philosophy and principles that you believe make the world go round.
The Shakti of this asterism is ‘The Power to Create Spiritual Energy’, so you may have your own belief system and a charisma that inspires others to follow you, especially when writing and speaking. Studying goes well, and you have a deep curiosity about the world which is returned with interest.
Your wisdom is in demand, both academic or practical, and simply giving a promise sees your word being trusted and valued. Mercury receives the influence of benevolent Jupiter through this transit, which enhances your optimism and brings a yet more philosophical outlook, with the power to think ahead and manifest your intent.
