Mercury, planet of the mind and communication, is in Mrigashira from June 28th to July 12th 2021, the nakshatra spanning the signs of Taurus and Gemini.
This transit goes back over the ground of Mercury’s recent retrograde phase, so you may be reviving ideas or giving a final call on decisions made earlier in June. The Taurus portion of Mrigashira, up to July 7th, sees your mind fixed and focused with a more argumentative side, while after this date finds you more flexible and curious about knowledge for its own sake.
Either way, there’s a sense of pursuing your goals out of intrigue and a desire for information, which may be insatiable – you still ask questions even after your chase is over. Mrigashira’s mythical symbol is the Deer, which is shown being pursued across the skies by Brahma the Creator, representing a pursuit driven by desire or ambition.
You are on a quest for intelligence and enlightenment, and this nakshatra’s Shakti, ‘To Give Fulfilment’ sees this desire having its own intrinsic appeal, which may be even more attractive than arriving at your goal. Mrigashira’s shy and receptive nature also means you may be pursued by someone who wants to pick your brain, or else to open up with a secret they want to share.
If you happen to be travelling, it’s worth fixing a schedule in advance to keep you on track and so you don’t lose your way. This nakshatra is ruled by the Moon, the fastest moving planet, which represents the emotional mind and adds to your current fickle and changeable character.
You react and communicate depending on your mood, but also enjoy the feeling that comes from having information at your fingertips and expressing yourself smartly.
