Mercury in Gemini Trine Uranus in Aquarius
As its parting gift before leaving Gemini yesterday, Mercury formed a trine with Uranus in Aquarius.
When this energy connects, your mental abilities are strongly linked to your intuitive faculties ... and in these two extraordinarily intellectual signs, the result can be ideas that shimmer with brilliance and insight. Your ideals for the future ... and your altruism in your conduct of relationship are also strengthened.
It's a wonderful energy to support investigation or research into new areas of thought and personal education. It helps you think for yourself and bolsters your willingness to take risks -- which may pay off quite handily because your instincts are so in tune with your inspirations. Your own ingenuity may startle you!
It's a time when new insights into the meaning of life ... and specifically the meaning of your life may arrive -- sometimes with the force of a lightning strike. I'm not kidding when I say this is a powerfully intellectual combination, and your personal connection to the Universal Mind is reinforced now.
Independent thinking ... and the readiness to explore bold new concepts ... and strongly indicated -- for everyone. You have no patience with "group think." You're ready to draw your own independent conclusions ... and champion them to anyone who will listen. You may reach new dimensions in "thinking for yourself" while this energy lasts.
This energy supports communications of all sorts ... everything from conversation to broadcasting to creative writing. If you are involved in any of these fields either professionally or as a hobby, dramatic and original new ideas may present themselves in the next few weeks. Again, this is a bonus for your eagerness to "think outside the box" ... and enjoy your own brilliance.

What Does Mercury Represent in Your Natal Chart? -- What is it ... and why is it important? ---> In mythology, Mercury was the winged messenger of the Gods. -- Your mind -- at work and play -- In Astrology, Mercury represents your conscious, rational mind. 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.
