Mercury, planet of thought and business, is in the nakshatra of Uttara Phalguni spanning the signs of Leo and Virgo from August 18th to 30th.

This asterism is ruled by Aryaman and Bagha, which reveals the honest but leisurely style you bring to thinking and communication, with a focus on enjoyment.

Uttara shares many similarities with its previous partner ‘the early red one’ Purva Phalguni, such as its symbol, the Hammock, though Mercury here is more concerned with being of service to other people.

This nakshatra’s Shakti is also ‘prosperity through partnership’, where Mercury gives you the potential to strike commercial relationships and pool your talents with someone in a joint endeavour. An alliance may start on a simple friendly level but you spot the chance to work together and support each other’s interests.

Even a small percentage of an overall profit can be beneficial if you get a share of a larger pie. Either way, you are genuinely curious about others, enjoy an exchange of ideas and a lively social scene. Fight your desire simply to be laid-back and fun-loving, and wake up to the promise that working alongside someone brings.

You are of most help when raising funds and awareness for a cause close to your heart, and you bring the most from this asterism’s potential. Remain open to other people’s thinking and you can also do good work as an advisor or counsellor.

From August 21st, Mercury receives the direct gaze of expansive Jupiter, giving you a broader and more philosophical mentality, which allows you to plan ahead with a bigger vision in mind.

Though you may have to guard against naivety when there’s a hidden or complex agenda on the table, your essential honesty in negotiations still wins the day.
