Mercury, planet of the mind and communication, is in Mrigashira from June 28th to July 5th 2022, the nakshatra spanning the signs of Taurus and Gemini.
The Taurus portion of Mrigashira, up to July 2nd, sees your mind fixed and focused, with a stubborn and possibly argumentative mentality that likes to stick to the facts. After this date, in its own sign of Gemini, Mercury finds you more flexible and curious about knowledge for its own sake, and readier to listen.
Mrigashira’s mythical symbol is the Deer, which is shown being pursued across the skies by Brahma the Creator, representing a drive of desire or ambition. You are on a quest for intelligence and enlightenment, and the Shakti of this asterism, ‘To Give Fulfilment’ sees this urge having its own intrinsic appeal, which may be even more attractive than arriving at your goal.
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.
Either way you pursue your goals out of intrigue and a restless desire for information – the chase is everything, so once satisfied you will seek something else to pursue. Mrigashira’s shy and receptive nature also means you may be pursued by someone who wants to pick your brain, or else open up with a secret they want to share.
Try to maintain your focus and deal with one task at a time. Likewise, if you are travelling, it’s worth fixing a schedule in advance to keep you on track and so you don’t lose your way.
