Mercury moves into the sign of Aries on 8th of April and will stay there until 24th of April, 2022.

This is a great transit for Mercury as it comes out of debilitation in the sign of Pisces. But before transiting into the sign of Aries, Mercury has to travel through the Gandanta zone which is a sensitive point between water (Pisces) and fire (Aries) signs.

Gandanta is nothing but a karmic knot that could unravel when a planet transits over it. The Gandanta zones always occur between fire and water signs of the zodiac as fire and water cannot coexist.

It is best to keep things simple especially with relationships. Issues from the past could surface up during this time for healing and rejuvenation.

We have to be careful about our communication as there is plenty of chances for misunderstanding. Double check all your travel docs and allow extra time at airports etc. Do not communicate in haste as you may not have the complete picture of a situation.
