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?…
Where Mercury goes, our mind follows – for you Mercury is moving into the part of your chart which is all about your home, family and foundations. There’s a literal or metaphorical trip into your past ahead for you in the coming weeks. For some, it’ll be thanks to an actual trip which takes you back to somewhere you’ve been before, or seeing someone from your past, but for others it will be a mental (head) trip spurred on by running into and/or reconnecting with someone from your past. Look at the memories which are being stirred up now and see how past events are effecting your life today. If you need to get over something from the past, or reconcile yesterday and today, you will find it easier to do just that – as long as you give yourself the mental time out you need. Look at where you have just been and where you are going. Home and family will occupy your mind more than usual now too. If you’ve drifted further away from your family than you’ve meant to, now is the ideal time to get back in touch.
