Where Mercury goes, our thoughts follow
You have probably heard about Mercury retrograde, right? It’s when the planet of communications appears to reverse in the skies and life can go a bit mad. But what about Mercury when it’s just being Mercury and not being retrograde? Mercury is the communications planet. Whenever you open your mouth to talk, or when you write something – anything from an SMS to a novel or beyond – or even if you just think or listen to someone, you’re using your Mercury. It’s the mind planet and it guides how you talk, write, otherwise express yourself and take in information. It’s your intellectual process. The sign and house Mercury is in will tell you how you think and express yourself, and even how you negotiate. (From my best-selling book Astrology Made Easy). So now Mercury is changing signs, moving from Pisces and back into the first sign of Aries. This affects us all in different ways. PS This is a day to definitely read your Rising Sign if you know it (or find it out here if you don’t!)
What does Mercury’s move into Aries mean for you?…
Let’s hope you’re in the mood for a chat, and happy to have plenty of people to see and even places to go. As Mercury cruises your Third House over the coming weeks, you can expect to be meeting new people, possibly taking some quick trips and/ir even getting to know your neighbours a little better. Also, if you’ve been out of touch with your siblings, there should be more opportunities to get together and make up for lost time. This transit of Mercury also bestows you with greater mental agility – if you have a written project or task you’ve been putting off, leap into it now as you’ll find the words come more easily. Overall, communications, conversations, emails, texts and phone calls are going to be taking up a lot of your time and life should flow more smoothly (and quickly) because you’ll find it much easier to talk to anyone and everyone now. Express yourself. This is not the time to be making weighty decision but it’s an excellent time to be gathering information.
