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?…
So how’s your love life? If you haven’t been giving it much thought lately, that could be about to change as the planet of the mind and conversations, Mercury, moves into your Love Zone. Overall, it’s very good news for you if you’ve been working hard and trying to get your love life on track. Mercury moving into your Love Zone marks the start of a period of several weeks when you’re more likely to be thinking about Love and Important Others In Your Life than about the mundane details and routines of life. If you’re attached and you and your partner have been having ‘issues’ now is the perfect time to talk things out. If you’re semi-attached and you want to discuss where your relationship is going, this is also the ideal moment, so seize the day (at some point over the next few weeks). And if you’re single, your powers to flirt lightly and effectively have just soared, so get out there and share your extra bubbly personality around. Whatever you do now, do it in partnership if you can – for the next four weeks or so, two minds are definitely better than one.
