Mercury, planet of communication and commerce, is in the nakshatra of Chitra from Oct 22nd to 30th 2022.
Chitra translates to ‘the Brilliant’ and its symbol of a shining Jewel reflects its brightness in the night sky, bringing skill with arts, crafts and design.
You may be interested in precious stones and metals – along with bright, colourful people – and this asterism’s rulership by Vishwakarma the celestial architect, shows a grand and ambitious project where you combine hands-on work with mental inspiration.
Chitra’s Shakti, or unique gift, is the ‘Power to Collect Merit’, so pursuing positive and life-supporting ambitions ensure your wishes succeed. You present well, with a stylish and eye-catching way of speaking that makes people sit up and take notice.
Either selling drawing a crowd with your cleverness, this is a time to shine and put your message across. Your earnest manner hides a good sense of humour and you can find somebody to connect with on a natural mental wavelength.
You love to flirt and mix with new people, and you let someone see the chaotic centre that lies underneath your surface calm and composure. In both the commercial and political worlds, you have tact and insight, and find exactly the right words – in the early Virgo section you have brains and precision, while the Libra section after October 26th gives you charm and diplomacy.
Mercury also associates with romantic Venus in the second half of this transit and gives you an even smoother and more diplomatic way of speaking. You can play the go-between or matchmaker and know how to handle the moment when somebody catches your eye.
