Things to Know About Mercury in Aries

by Rebecca Brents

break

From Mar 2002*

Mercury moves into Aries early this morning. Mercury itself is the metaphor for one's use of intellectual energy, abilities in logic and reasoning, and communications skills. When Mercury is in Aries, ideas are very ambitious, assertive, and enthusiastic. Thinking shows a strong capacity for independence, initiative, competitiveness, and pioneering spirit. This energy is known for being adventurous, courageous, direct and dynamic.

There may be a very obvious emphasis on winning and dominating. People feel very strongly about their ideas and viewpoints ... and will vigorously push their opinions, often without caring whether those are welcome or not. They may call this "communicating," which it is, technically, . . . but they're really most concerned with "getting their own points across." Accordingly, styles of speaking and writing may be blunt, self-assured, domineering and contentious.

It will certainly be easier to pick a fight ... or get into a spirited debate for the next several weeks. There is extra drive and vigor fueling intellectual ambitions now. People want to get their convictions out where others can see them, and you may have to either present your own notions with equal force -- or stand back and let others have their say while preparing your counterarguments for when they finally wind down.

As Mercury moves hard to catch up with the Aries Sun ... and finally succeeds in the early morning hours of April 7, objectivity will become less and less available. People will identify quite belligerently with their own beliefs and react to intellectual dissent as if it were a personal attack. Tempers will shorten, and the tendency to snap back with an impatient, aggressive remark may set off quite a string of verbal firecrackers ... since everyone is charged with this energy now.

Keep in mind that under stress with this energy out and about, styles of thinking, speaking, and writing become temperamental, defiant, and arrogant. The ideas of others incite contempt and petulance, and there is a strong tendency in everyone to be rebellious, overbearing, self-willed, and uncooperative. Courtesy may be a temporary casualty, along with self-control.

It tells a lot about your intellectual self; your ability to study, learn, analyze, communicate and work with information.

Mercury in General -- Your Inner Selves of Learning and Work ---> Learning stuff, using your mind and putting it to work -- Like Venus, your Mercury energy describes two inner selves. One manages your mind and all its talents; the other is in charge of the work you do ... the ways you use your skills and abilities to help others and build the kind of life your want for yourself. Again, as with Venus, these are usually reduced to the basic categories of "mind" and "work," but they also include whole subdivisions of behavior and talents.

Mercury and the Miracle of the Mind -- Astrology's Search for Intelligent Life ---> As an Astrologer I see both the mundaneness of common knowledge -- handling the basic facts of awareness and everyday rituals -- and a touch of miracles in Mercury.

Mercury Retrograde -- Rethinking Your Present Direction ---> In the territory of the mind -- When Mercury is retrograde (Mercury Rx -- in shorthand), it is a time of rethinking, refocusing and re-communicating. In Astrology, Mercury represents your intellect; your mental focus; your mind and how you use its assets.

When Mercury is in Aries -- Your Intellectual Self in the Sign of -- Initiative and Self-Assertion ---> A bird with an Aries attitude! -- Independent thinking -- When Mercury is in Aries, ideas are assertive and enthusiastic. Thinking shows independence, initiative, and pioneering spirit. All by itself, this energy encourages bold, candid opinions. Compared to the creative dreaminess of Pisces -- which we just finished -- and the laid-back planning of Taurus -- which happens next, this intellectual climate is lively and confident.
