Once a year, the transiting Sun moves through your 12th house and over your ascendant into the first. Mercury is never far ahead or behind, so that’s a transit that happens in the same time period as well.
When the Sun and Mercury transit the 12th house, the ego, senses, communications, and attitude slip behind the veil a bit. For some, this is a magical time when tapping into inner wisdom and divine guidance brings connection into (misty, dreamlike) focus… like vaseline on the lens of life.
For many it’s a time of insecurity and the questioning of purpose, existential anxiety.
In any case, they eventually cross the ascendant, they RISE. This dawning sense of self and mental cohesion is a once a year treat.
Granted, if you have hard aspects to the ascendant/decendant axis, it’s not such a straightforward affair. It is still a new chapter and holds a basket of goodies to mull over for the rest of the year. For some it just takes more work to loosen the lid.
What was the sky like this year when the Sun and Mercury made these transits? Where is it coming up for you? Is that an annual time period you generally like or not? You might take a moment to see if they offer extra insight.
