Transit (moving) Mercury travels fairly quickly, spending almost one month in each sign, though it can take longer if it retrogrades (moves backwards) in one sign. The aspects it makes last for about two days, the day before and day of.
When I see this in my readings, I know that there has been a major breakthrough of scale that has happened when you practice astrology. This is a killer transit to look for the transits of the knots in astrology and they can't really play faded karmic cycles and can add so much context to the natal chart story if you haven't seen my last article on what the lunar knots were , also called Rahu and Ketu, you can watch this article linked below of what the knots are just for time constraints. So if you are not familiar with what the Lunar Nodes are, as well as their background and rationale, as you recommend watching the article linked below first, I'll also take some general astrology concepts for granted, namely the rationale of the healthcare system and the importance of the planets, so if you get lost on these and want a full article explaining them let me know below so I can update them all, including by lunar node or by node s I'll be in refer to the lunar nodes throughout the article, not other planetary nodes.
I'll also use some examples to quickly work through how the concepts manifest, but when you're all caught up and ready to dive into what the transit nodes of the of the moon terms make sure you subscribe and hit the You're always up to date with what the stars have in store for you Hi I'm Marena, professional astrologer, current college student and author, I practice a blend of traditional Hellenistic astrology techniques with modern counseling dynamics in order to provide sound spiritual advice this article is also made available to you by the Rasi collective Rasi is my newly founded company. It is a platform that connects spiritual practitioners with their ideal clients. So if you are part of the spiritual community and want to publicize your metaphysical services, or if you are looking for healing in general, you will find all the information below.
Rasi is basically a spiritual yelp service a place for you to hold place, to sum it up in a nutshell Rahu, the north node of the moon is associated with increase and insatiability, while the south node of the lunar ketu is in it is an indication of decline or release I'll get to the general Now understand the nodes passing through, and then go through some specific case-by-case examples, first from the nodes of the moon, which are actually retrograde backwards through the diagram due to their retrograde motion. So if you watch the nodes recede through your diagram, you will find that they are moving you backwards through the houses because the north node represents the dip in your direction. You can see the traversing north node on your diagram as you really lean in and move forward a lot, and since the south node is a decrease, you can look at the traversing south node on your chart record a business that you might flee into, or depend heavily on previous patterns it is when you are in the cardinal houses first fourth seventh tenth because these are the backbone of the health system and the really standout areas of life.
The particularly defining moments in these cardinal houses will be when the nodes migrate near the ascendant descendant or MC or IC, when the nodes are on your ascendant descendant axis. This will be a time when you really focus on your identity or to increase or decrease relationships depending on which node is where and when the nodes are on your MC-IC axis, depending on which node is where there will be a time of extreme shifts in relation on the public image vis-à-vis inner, inner, very intimate states, also because the north and south nodes are always connected, we have to regard them as an interconnected access, not as separate transits, although the north node is really progress or development and Forward movement highlights and the South Node will tend to think of the past and dissolve it are a cycle, even though they are interconnected. The nodes can also go through in relation to your natal chart itself, where I see the crucial turning points.
It takes 18 years for the knots to complete their full cycle, so every 18 years the knots return to their birth position in your chart and this is called a knot return on the other side by the time you are nine years old, the knots are flipped over and connected their birth position in reverse the north knot is on the south knot and the south knot is on the north knot, this is called a knot opposition and it happens every eighteen years too, but starting when you are nine so basically there is nodal opposition every nine years with no return etc. because the node entry in your natal chart is already pointing your karmic history towards an increase in decrease, with the transit nodes either in a returned or opposite position 'activate the progress or further continuation of this history nodal returns indicate that the life story in the next The same themes are found in the house positions as the full context for what history of the increase in decreases is played out. Not returns also often manifest as a vertical crisis in which there is an urgent need to improve personal transformation, node opposition be viewed as a crisis of that need for transformation and therefore can be a time of positive dissolution and as you feel about this cycle, of course positive dissolution and not negative dissolution if you come from a savvy point of awareness.
So let's look at Kurt Cobain's diagram as an example of a knot return and an oval of opposition, he's a celebrity diagram that I enjoy working with because I know his life pretty well, so locating events on his diagram is quite useful If you've seen other articles I tend to use it quite a bit, yes I used my own natal chart before and both Kurt and I have our natal nodes in the same third and ninth houses which makes it easy for me to refer to that Diagram example pointing out mples only because you are used to seeing the same places in the article, but obviously the notes can be in any house access pair in your diagram. During his first knot return, he had recently denounced Christianity and began to indulge in truly remarkable anti-God cries, even when living with his friends, a born-again Christian family, when he was picked up by street homelessness and the song Lithium actually arose from this experience and it was really a hallmark of how his philosophical foundations for nirvana came about Faith with the south knot indicating liberation and the ninth house of higher philosophies, religions, spirituality and belief systems indicating a north knot, who seeks more forward thinking The third house can also indicate nearby neighborhoods or areas and the ninth house can indicate foreign travel or areas that are not as familiar on a living basis and this was also the time he started to li under a bridge in Aberdeen, where he ended up around s wrote on the way, which is super literal because the south is literally related to being dragged down or having to let go, and he literally talked about how his surroundings and current pressures are obviously immense to turn gates and moments, which drove him to his Dharma, his purpose in life, and these tend to appear more complete with time. The knots really tend to work in terms of planting a seed that turns out to be collective change, whether or not it is as collective as Kurt Cobain, for his nodal opposition this was really dramatic because he died during that time , but no de la positions are no signs of death an indicator of death, it's a turning point indicator I'm also in astrology, just to sum up its sign, that all of it is not causal so that none of it happens, it signals that these things are happening, so I will not touch his death in regards to this nodal opposition, it was just a vertical crisis that he realized that the carryover of his ninth house philosophy is a truly forward-looking thought that is more life changing, more dramatic and effective for his personal mental health, when he had realized with the third house activated by the north node, even with his new birth node in the south, where he lived in Seattle, he had returned to where he came from, and with these ideas he grew a lot over time, even amid his now global fame, he had returned to the culture he grew up with, and if you've had a particularly memorable return or opposition I'd love to hear about it in the comments below, depending on how it manifested for you and your experience let me know in a comment below if you're open to that Sharing notes can also show a really dramatic rise or fall as they traverse planets in your land of birth chart when traversing over the evils that are either Marsor Saturn it generally becomes either a supercharged Rahu or a really very draining one Ketu challenge, if they cross the magnetics Venus or Jupiter it will also be a really charged or draining type of occurrence, however Crossing the sun in a more positive constructive way can relate to personal life paths.
Creativity and egoic developments or releases. Also, crossing the moon generally indicates a physical or emotional increase or decrease like the physical body or really relevant emotional states The state in which the cycle's increase and decrease as a whole is going on, regardless of whether the transit nodes are connected to your natal nodes or other planetary placements, or the nodes are not a planet, but other placements indicate a breakthrough moment that tends to be a personal choice that has faded consequences in the end to how your life turns out if the decision at one point seems insignificant or petty, which usually it doesn't, but sometimes it can be a more nuanced decision. More than likely you can look back later and see how much it affected your life path, so I consider the transit nodes not just another transit in astrology, but a turning point in terms of your hero's journey.

Mercury is considered auspicious in the 1, 2, 4, 5, 6 and the 7th houses and gives bad results when placed in the 3, 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12th. Its colour is green and moon is its enemy. Sun Venus and Rahu are friends, whereas mars, Saturn, and Ketu are neutral to him. 7th house is the Pukka ghar of mercury. .Mercury is special because it is the only metallic element that is liquid at standard temperature and pressure. Its elementary symbol is Hg because it is based on its older and much more difficult name to pronounce. It used to be called 'hydrargyrum'.
When the planet Mercury transit from one zodiac sign to another, then it is called Mercury Transit. This planet remains in one zodiac sign for 14 days. Mercury's transit period is lowest in Vedic Astrology. Mercury is the lord of Ashlesha, Jyeshtha, and Revati Nakshatra.
Thanks to Ptolemy and his cronies, everyone thought that the earth was the center of the solar system, with the sun, planets, and even the stars revolving around them on a series of concentric crystal balls. It was a smart idea and explained the movements motion of the planets kind of.
Then in 1543 Copernicus found out that the earth is not the center of the solar system. In fact, it's just one planet in a huge solar system, with objects swirling and whirling around the sun. With the structure of the solar system figured out, and the idea of the crystal ball in the garbage, astronomers still had a great unknown: How big is the solar system? Was it a few million kilometers in diameter or hundreds of millions.
How big is the sun far away is Venus? Astronomers needed some kind of cosmic yardstick to measure anything against. Find one piece of the puzzle and then you could measure everything else in relation to each other. In 1627 Johannes Kepler determined that the movement of Venus was predictable. and the Venus would pass in front of the sun in 1631, probably in the afternoon.
This is known as the 'passage' of Venus. The first rough measurements of the movement of Venus across the Sun were made in 1639 by Jeremiah Horrocks and William Crabtree from two different locations in England. And with these two observations, they were able to calculate the geometry between the earth, Venus, and the sun.
When you remember all of those memories that you push out of your high school geometry, once you have an angle and one side of a triangle, you can figure out all of the other parts of the triangle. Horrocks and Crabtree calculated the distance from the earth to the sun with an accuracy of about 2/3. Not bad considering that prior to that point, astronomers literally had no clue.
Following this observation, the astronomers returned to their telescopes on each Venus transit, refined their calculations and finally agreed on the current distance of around 150 million kilometers. From here on earth we can see some objects happening in front of the sun: Venus, Mercury and the moon. Venus transits are the rarest and occur twice about every 108 years.
Mercury transits happen more frequently, about a dozen times per century. And a transit of the moon, also known as a solar eclipse, occurs on average a couple of times a year. It's all a question of perspective.
When standing on the moon, you may see the earth pass before the sun - a lunar eclipse, while the lunatic would call it an earth transit. We can also see transits in other parts of the solar system, like moons passing planets. For example, if you have a small telescope, you can see when Jupiter's larger moons are moving past the planet from our perspective.
However, one of the questions you may have is why these transits don't happen more often. Why don't we see a Mercury or Venus transit every time they line up with us and the sun. This is because the planets are not oriented at exactly the same angle to the sun.
Planets are tilted at an angle that takes them above or below the sun at different points in their orbit. For example, the orbit of Venus is tilted 3 degrees from the equator of the sun, while the earth is tilted 7 degrees, Venus and Earth are lined up, Venus is either above or below the sun. Are you an ageless vampire or plan to live in multiple robotic bodies for a long time, then you are in luck.
In the year 69.163 there will be a double transit on the solar surface with both Mercury and Venus at the same time. Enjoy while you ponder the horror of your existence.
Once we become a true solar system civilization, there will be even more opportunities for transits. The people who live on Mars will be able to see Mercury, Venus, and even Earth transits in front of the Sun. Neptunians will get bored of seeing them so often. they survive A section of the night sky observing the brightness of thousands of stars.
When a planet passes perfectly right between us and a star, Kepler detects a drop in brightness. When you think about the geometries involved, it's amazing that this happens at all. But the universe is a huge place.
Even if even a tiny percentage of the star systems are perfectly aligned with us, there are enough to discover thousands upon thousands of planets. Kepler has uncovered worlds the size of the earth orbiting other stars, some of which even orbit the habitable zone of their planet. Watching planetary transits is more than just a fun astronomical event, it is how astronomers figured out the size of the solar system for themselves.
And now they are helping us to find other planets orbiting other stars, agree to meet in the year 2117 for the next Venus transit and celebrate this amazing event.

Today the transit remains an important scientific phenomenon, which could even assist astronomers searching for 'exoplanets' - planets beyond our Solar System. 'When Mercury crosses the face of the Sun, it actually makes a very small impact on the brightness of the Sun,' Kerss says.
Thanks to Squarespace for sponsoring today's article. On November 11, 2019, Mercury will cross the sun from our point of view on earth. This will not be noticeable to the naked eye, but with the right equipment you can see the silhouette of Mercury against the sun.
I'm Alex McColgan, and you're watching Astrum, and in this article I'm going to go over the what, when, and where of this transit and also explain why it doesn't happen much more regularly. A transit is when a celestial object passes in front of another object from our perspective, but perspective makes the next body too small to eclipse the farthest one. So while the moon eclipses the sun, only Mercury and Venus are at this distance to be able to pass the sun.
This is because they are the only planets that orbit closer to the sun than we do. When the earth and either Mercury or Venus align between us and the sun, this is called a subordinate conjunction - the sun is a planet, the shorter its year means for Mercury that a year is only 89 earth days. This means that in the time it takes for the earth to orbit the sun, it will dash to the sun a few times.
If so, then why doesn't Mercury transit happen a few times? Times a year? This is because, while planets in our solar system all orbit roughly at the level of the solar system, not all of them have perfectly flat and circular orbits. Their orbital eccentricity is not great, but it is enough if you take this into account to explain the great distances between these relatively small objects. So for most orbits, from our perspective, Mercury is either too high or too low to be directly in front of the sun.
Every now and then, however, the alignment is just right for a transit to take place, unlike Venus, which has a very fixed time span between transits, 2 eight years apart and then a long gap of 121 and 105 years. Unfortunately, if you wanted to see a Venus transit but haven't done it yet, you've probably missed it forever, the next one is now a hundred years away. Mercury on the other side has a strange pattern, although there are usually around 13 transits per century .
Interestingly, each Mercury transit only happens in May or November. If that's what you want to see, I wouldn't miss the one this year or you will have to wait 13 years. These articles you see now were captured by the Solar Dynamics Observatory, a NASAspace telescope that constantly monitors the sun, from the last transit in 2016.
So how can you see this transit for yourself? The first stop I would suggest is to look for local astronomy clubs nearby. They are usually very interested in observing phenomena like this and are generally happy to see the public come on such occasions; if this is not for you, you can observe it with a telescope. Note, however, that you will need to use a solar filter or you will definitely be self-dazzling, you need to see if your telescope can use a solar filter attachment, I wouldn't strongly recommend using a homemade one just in case it's not done right and you're still damaging your eyes.
You can use the same glasses that you used to view an eclipse, although you need to have pretty good eyesight to see Mercury for what it is so small. My final suggestion would be to build my own optical projection camera. A simple pinhole camera won't work in this case because Mercury is again too small.
All you need are two thick cardboard boxes and a pair of binoculars. Hold the binoculars in place and cut holes in one of the sheets so you can attach them seamlessly around the lenses. This is to block the sunlight from everyone but the lens.
Block one of the lenses, you don't need two projections. Using the second sheet, hold it about 30 cm from the viewfinder and you should get a projection of the sun. Adjust the position of the blade and adjust the focus on the binoculars until you get a nice, sharp image.
With a bit of luck, you can see the silhouette of Mercury! But here too, don't look at the sun itself through the binoculars, just look at the projected image. So November 11th, 2019. When can I see it? Well, that depends on where you are in the world.
It starts at 12:35 UTC for Europe. Africa and the Middle East. During the day it will become visible in America.
Sorry Russia, Asia and Australasia, you are out of luck. When you are at the South Pole, you have a good view from start to finish. So there you have it, Mercury's upcoming 2019 transit.

When Mercury is placed in 7th house, it will give you a youthful appearance. You will have good communication skill, quick intelligence and quick grasping power. If this Mercury is associated or related with Mars by aspect or conjunction, it will give you good ability to debate and argue. .
Transit (moving) Uranus travels slowly, spending years in one sign. The aspects it makes last for about 6 - 12 weeks, and when it transits a house, it stays there for many years.
The 6th, 7th, and 10th are bad houses for the Sun. The Moon, the Jupiter and the Mars are the planets friendly to the Sun, where the Saturn, Venus, Rahu and Ketu are enemies. The first is the Puccka Ghar, the permanent house and the house of exaltation of the Sun, whereas the 7th house is in the house of debilitation. .
Saturn is considered good in houses 2nd , 3rd and 7th to 12th, whereas 1st, 4th, 5th and 6th houses are bad for Saturn. Sun, Moon and Mars are its enemies, Venus, Mercury and Rahu are friends and Jupiter and Ketu are neutral to it. .
When Mercury is in Cancer, it has a subtler approach to communication. Instead of relying on the spoken word, it is more intuitive and emotional based. Cancer is a mute sign because it belongs to the water element. Therefore, you can expect to struggle with how to express your sentiments over the next few weeks. .
During this retrograde cycle, Mercury will be backspinning through its home sign of Gemini and because it's also currently Gemini season 2021, the retrograde effects may be amplified. .
