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?…
Knowing what really matters to you is such a big deal. Once you know that, you can arrange your life accordingly. So as Mercury moves into your 2nd House, it’s the right to ask yourself: What do I really value in life? Over the coming few weeks, you can expect this question to be raised for you again and again, one way or another. For some, there will be issues related to “How hard to do I want to work, in order to earn a decent living, versus how much time off do I need to allow myself to have a decent quality of life?” The next few weeks will help you work out your answer. Business plans, especially connected to property, are well-starred now. Certainly you can expect The Bottom Line of something to be front of mind. If you feel you’re not being adequately paid for the work you do, now is the time to talk to the Powers That Be about it. If you feel totally lost by all the financial questions swirling around you now, it’s an excellent time to hire an advisor or accountant.
