Mercury, planet of intellect and communication, is in Bharani, in the zodiacal sign of Aries from May 21st until June 5th 2023.
This transit is a repeat of Mercury’s recent stay in Bharani from April 8th to May 8th, which included its retrograde phase, so there has been an intensive focus in 2023 already on the affairs of this asterism.
Bharani’s name means ‘she who bears’, its symbol is a Vulva, and its meaning is bound up with giving birth, either as in bearing children or delivering a plan or creative thought.
An inventive scheme which you thought up weeks ago comes around again and you deal with the finer points, and perhaps practical details of pricing and delivery. Your personal ‘brainchild’ gives rise to educational achievements and new insights, as well as giving birth to new plans, connections and business schemes.
The Shakti of this asterism is the ‘Power to Carry Things Away’, in a mystical sense, but Mercury gives you precisely the detachment and presence of mind to stop you getting ‘carried away’ with an idea. Intense focus is your gift.
From May 20th to 24th especially, Mercury receives the influence of stern, traditional Saturn, and you walk a line between conformity and rebellion. You may wish to air your own radical statement or opinion on a subject, only to be told you don’t yet have the experience or credentials.
It takes study and focus to come up to the required level, but this is a useful experience if it sees you raise your awareness and think about precisely what you want to say. You rebound from an initial setback and end up with more respect for working answers out for yourself.
