At the time of this post, Mercury is retrograde and will be until May 3, when it turns direct at 24 degrees of Aries. Mercury leaves Taurus and re-enters Aries April 20.
April 23-24 Mercury will trine Saturn. Even though Mercury is retrograde this transit can give us some stability. This is a perfect transit for going back and getting things done. Utilize this energy for practical accomplishment and I expect you will like the results. This transit will return and be even more powerful after Mercury is direct on May 11.
This is good for persistence in action, preciseness in communication and implementation of practical ideas. It can be positive for approaching those in power, talking with people you have known from the past, older or powerful people, and favors mental discipline and practical accomplishment.
Between April 27 and May 9, Mercury is conjunct Uranus.
This transit will last an extended period of time, and the most significant days are April 27-28, and May 8-9 when the transit is exact. This is a double edged sword. The typical manifestation is unexpected communication and events. This can make some nervous, and you should be careful traveling and driving as you or someone else may not be paying attention.
The positive side of this transit can be brilliant and sudden insights and original ideas. You could have an intellectual interest in many things as well as exciting and unexpected communication. You could experience some type of sudden change of mind or someone else could.
The theme of Uranus is originality, new ideas and freedom. Some will seek freedom at this time from whatever they find repressive, whether it is an idea or a relationship, or something else.
As always with these transits, major events play out in the world. Uranus rules freedom and coups, and can be associated with weather. It is associated with innovation and technology. We can expect to see and hear completely unexpected news. This could be associated with war and nuclear situations, especially as Uranus is still within orb of its square to Pluto, which is associated with nuclear power. When the Sun was conjunct Uranus on April 14, The US military dropped America's most powerful non-nuclear bomb on ISIS targets in Afghanistan. We will hear unexpected news on many fronts.
