Mercury in Aries.
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 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.

Basic Stuff About Mercury ---> About Mercury ---> * Mercury occupies the innermost orbit of any other planet in our Solar System. Relative to Earth it is located on the other side of Venus. Mercury is the planet closest to the Sun. * Mercury moves completely through the Zodiac in about a year, but his progression through the signs is very irregular. He goes into retrograde three to four times a year. When he's traveling direct, he stays in a sign about two weeks. But when his retrograde cycle kicks in, he can be in a sign for over two months.
* 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.
* 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.
