The Sun

The Sun in astrological transits acts as a spotlight on our lives, illuminating our path, identity, and individuality. Its influence in transits is potent; it highlights areas needing growth and development or affirming our existing paths. When the Sun transits another planet in a natal chart, it activates the planet's energies, enhancing or challenging them depending on the nature of the aspect.

Mercury governs communication, thought processes, and the exchange of information. When transiting, Mercury affects how we think, communicate, and perceive the world around us. These transits can bring changes in our way of expressing ourselves, learning, and connecting with others.

type of aspect:

A conjunction occurs when two planets align at the same degree within the same zodiac sign, merging their energies. This alignment often signals new beginnings and the initiation of a new cycle. Conjunctions can amplify the planets' qualities, leading to a focused burst of energy in the areas governed by those planets.


The Sun conjunct Mercury transit marks a period where your conscious mind (Mercury) aligns with your core essence and vitality (Sun), illuminating your thoughts, communication, and self-expression. During this time, you may find your mental faculties are sharpened, and you're able to articulate your ideas and perceptions with greater clarity and confidence. This is an excellent time for all forms of communication, planning, and intellectual pursuits. You might experience a burst of creativity, find solutions to problems more easily, or have meaningful conversations that align closely with your identity and purpose. This transit encourages alignment between your thoughts and your true self, offering opportunities for self-reflection and the clarification of your personal goals.

what to do

  • Engage in conversations that matter to you. Your words have more impact now.

  • Start a new study or research project. Your mind is ripe for absorbing new information.

  • Write. Whether it’s journaling, articles, or letters, your ability to articulate is enhanced.

  • Plan and strategize for the future. Your clarity of thought can help set the course.

  • Express yourself through teaching or presenting. Your communication is powerful and effective.

what to avoid

  • Overthinking. While analysis is a strength now, don’t get lost in it.

  • Being dismissive of others’ viewpoints. Openness can lead to greater insights.

  • Neglecting to listen. Communication is a two-way street.

  • Underestimating the power of your words. They can have lasting effects.

  • Getting caught in details and missing the bigger picture.

  1. Over-Identification with the Mind: Individuals may overly identify with their mental processes, leading to ego inflation or the belief that self-worth is tied solely to intellect or communication abilities.

  2. Difficulty in Listening: There's a tendency to dominate conversations, which can result in not truly hearing or valuing others' perspectives.

  3. Overthinking: The mental buzz can lead to analysis paralysis, where making decisions becomes difficult due to overanalyzing every possibility.

  1. Self-Reflection and Journaling: Begin by reflecting on recent conversations and thought patterns. Journal about instances where you felt compelled to dominate discussions or found yourself overthinking. Identify the emotions and beliefs underlying these behaviors.

  2. Mindfulness Practices: Incorporate mindfulness meditation into your daily routine, focusing on the breath to anchor you in the present moment. This practice helps reduce overthinking by training the mind to observe thoughts without attachment.

  3. Active Listening Exercises: Engage in conversations where your primary goal is to listen and understand, rather than to respond or impress. Practice reflective listening by summarizing what the other person has said before adding your thoughts.

  4. Communication Skills Development: Learn and practice assertive communication techniques. This includes expressing your own thoughts and feelings clearly and respectfully, while also valuing others' input.

  5. Creative Expression: Channel your mental energy into creative outlets such as writing, art, or music. These activities can help process and express thoughts and feelings in a non-verbal way, reducing the impulse to over-analyze or dominate conversations.

  6. Information Fast: Take regular breaks from consuming information, whether it be news, social media, or books. These "fasts" can help reduce mental clutter and the compulsion to constantly process new data, easing the tendency to overthinking.



  1. "I honor my intellect and my heart equally, recognizing the strength in both listening and sharing."

  2. "My self-worth is multi-faceted, encompassing my kindness, empathy, and ability to connect with others."

  3. "I embrace the power of now, engaging with the world through a lens of curiosity and openness, free from overthinking."
