Mercury, planet of the mind, is in conjunction with the all-powerful Sun in Aries from April 15th to May 15th 2023.

This combination gives you pride in your thinking and communication, and may inspire you to find a new solution to an old or intractable problem. Sun and Mercury are planetary enemies, so while it’s a challenge to reconcile their intuitive and intellectual natures, there are definite rewards at this time.

Budhaditya Yoga, is a combination for academic study, clear speech and commercial skill, and with the Sun in Aries at its most focused and charismatic, you have the courage to pursue a difficult question and back yourself against opposing views.

Mercury is in Aries for an extended period and its retrograde motion starting April 22nd is a turning point. You seek to move forwards and break new academic or business ground, but may have to review your ideas – if not have a total rethink.

Keep an open mind, but if anything, hold fast to your original ideas at this point. This conjunction is at its closest from May 1st to 3rd, where Mercury is completely obscured in the Sun’s brightness, and you should pay special attention to detail.

Write down any passing idea that may be revived later. Sun and Mercury are also under the gaze of cool, karmic Saturn through this whole transit, which gives you patience, persistence, and the ability to meet a deadline.

This influence takes the edge off Aries’s impulsiveness and allows you to think strategically and professionally. Strike a balance between seizing the moment versus thinking through consequences, and don’t be afraid to negotiate hard on a deal if your first offer isn’t right.
