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?…
Have you ever heard that very old song which says “You’ve got to have a dream, if you don’t have a dream, how you gonna make a dream come true?” It’s actually a great line and so true. And it’s pertinent to you now too. Your dreams and goals, what you wish for yourself and your goals – all of these are to be highlighted from today onwards for the next few weeks. Now is the time to think about your expectations. Are you hoping and wishing for something which is starting to seem like it’s really never going to happen? Is there anything you can do, a last ditch effort, to try to turn things around your way? And if not, is there any point clinging on to this dream or is there perhaps some other channel you can put your energies into? Or perhaps all is not lost and there is someone you know – socially, or through another network – who can help you? Think about it. This is most definitely the time to be considering the people around you that you’re somehow hooked up to. It’s also a good time to be assessing if your dreams and goals are your own or the result of peer pressure.
