Mercury, planet of thought and communication, is in Shravana within the sign of Capricorn from February 7th to 16th.

Shravana is an auspicious nakshatra associated with wisdom and learning, and its symbol, an Ear, relates to an oral tradition and spoken, spiritual knowledge. This asterism’s Shakti, or unique gift, for ‘Connection’, sees you reaching out to others and bringing people in to a shared endeavour, or simply making a wise new friend.

Mercury’s affinity with all these qualities makes this an excellent transit for education, either formal or self-taught, which broadens your horizons. A teaching role is a perfect way to share knowledge and show off your skills to others, and also to enhance your own understanding.

You become well-versed in your subject, and pay attention to overheard intelligence and scraps of information picked up in your daily business. Shravana also has a natural association with Saraswati, devata of wisdom, whose nature enlivens your intellect and gives a natural connection to new and esoteric ideas.

You choose your words for their power to affirm and create, and a period of quiet reflection lets you hear your inner voice and tune out small-talk and gossip. Show off your culture and intelligence, but also a practical quality which uses your brains to a specific purpose.

Shravana is also in the moveable class of nakshatra, so you may travel actively in pursuit of knowledge and have the ability to study language and culture while you are on your journey. The New Moon on February 9th is a perfect time to open your studies, and show an emotional intelligence that draws people close when you seem to understand.
