Mercury at the Greatest Western Elongation

On April 11, the planet Mercury reaches the greatest western elongation from the Sun. When this happens, Mercury will be at its angular distance from the Sun, so for a few days, we will have a unique opportunity to see it in the morning sky. However with the naked eye, you would look for it in vain. Mercury is one of the smallest planets in our solar system and at the same time, it's closest to the Sun, and so its visibility is very poor. For this reason, you will have to use a telescope to admire it.

Don't forget to take advantage of Mercury's positive effects regarding travel, challenges and communication. In the phase of maximum elongation of this planet, communication skills are intensified, as is clarification of your thinking. Embrace this period, use it for personal development and be receptive to any changes.
