Mercury, planet of speech and intelligence is in Vishakha nakshatra across the signs of Libra and Scorpio from November 14th to 23rd.
Vishakha is ruled by Indragni, a combination of Indra, King of the Gods and Agni, the embodiment of divine fire, which together create a Phoenix-like deity. This fiery nakshatra makes you a great campaigner and may also see you getting involved with a political ideal or outlook.
The symbol here is a Victory Arch, and Vishakha’s Shakti, or special power, is To Achieve Many Fruits in Life – all of which gives great promise, but make sure your ambitions don’t become all-consuming. You have a focused way of thinking, where you are concentrated on one particular goal, perhaps to the exclusion of all else.
Your powers of concentration are perfect for studying and research, and all it takes is a fascinating subject for you to become completely immersed. Appreciate others also have their opinions and instead of arguing all-out to win, try to work more subtly and make your proposals a mutual victory.
This way you head opposition at the start and others want to see you succeed. While preparing the ground for victory, you may confront others with similar desires, which draws you into a bigger political scenario. This can make you feel like a pawn in somebody else’s game, so be on the lookout for ulterior motives and make sure too that your business connections are on the level.
Up to November 21st, Mercury transits alongside dynamic Mars, which gives you a passionate and immediate way of thinking – be careful of an impulse buy, but if a proposition seems good, you seize the moment quickly.
