Mercury, planet of intelligence and communication, is in Uttara Ashada from February 4th to 14th 2023 the nakshatra across the zodiacal signs of Sagittarius and Capricorn.
This transit sees Mercury return to Uttara after its recent retrograde period, and cover again the territory it was in from late December 2022 to early January 2023. Ideas, offers and deals from New Year may reoccur, or you now get the results of a decision you made back then.
A second take may prove better, where you see the flaws in your thinking, and readjust and pay attention to a missing detail that brings a plan together. Uttara’s auspicious energy emphasises diplomacy and moderation, and any issues which come around again have special importance.
This asterism’s Shakti, for ‘Uncontested Victory’, also favours careful negotiation and you may find a result coming to you without apparent planning or outside interference. In fact, this quality is the hallmark of correct thinking, and you may have to adjust in any situation where you run into opposition or complication.
Though your mentality is lively and curious, you don’t mind a patient build-up when there’s the prospect of ultimate success. Uttara ashada is of the Kshatriya, or warrior caste, and you meet with success when channelling your mental powers into a war of words.
Letters, articles and debate give your campaign energy and publicity, and you can make a real difference to an important issue. You are also on hand to offer good advice to a friend in need.
Initiating new plans and desires is a feature of Uttara Ashada, and its symbol, the elephant’s Tusk, has a link to Ganesha, where chanting a mantra for the Remover of Obstacles sees any work, plan or journey start early 2023 off with a routine victory.
