Mercury, planet of the mind and speech, is in Shatabhishak from February 23rd to March 1st 2024, the nakshatra within the zodiacal sign of Aquarius that translates to ‘a hundred medicines’ (or doctors).
Shatabhishak’s Shakti, or special gift, is for Healing, and your mind turns now to wellness, in whatever form it takes for you, where Mercury makes you curious and intelligent about new developments. Gather information or read around a particular form of medicine or positive-thinking program, and you have an excellent bond with knowledge.
You are aware of the mind-body relationship and may heal yourself through mantras and affirmation. This asterism’s rulership by Varuna, God of the Seas, is good for immersion in the inner meditative ocean, or else being in contact with actual physical water can to hydrate and heal.
Shatabhishak’s symbol of an invisible container or shoreline represents infinity, separating the land from the sea, or earth from the sky. You can tap into a mystical quality and ponder esoteric ideas and technology, and this is may also be a good time to study astrology and esoteric arts.
Still, try to stay in touch with your basic social skills – Shatabhishak has a reputation for blunt speech which can make tension between you and friends. Though you are decisive and articulate, any modern, progressive ideas need careful handling where you weigh your words and don’t cause an unnecessary shock.
A reality check may arrive on February 28th and 29th, when news reaching you initially acts as a setback. Don’t be disheartened, and instead think of a practical answer to the issue at hand. You are smart and resourceful, and any solution you reach should stand the test of time.
