When Mercury is in Aries
Your Intellectual Self in the Sign of
Initiative and Self-Assertion

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.

There is emphasis on winning. People feel strongly about their ideas ... and vigorously push their opinions, whether they're welcome or not. It can be a time of loud rhetoric and competition -- with less emphasis on "persuading" followers than on shouting down dissent.

There is a big difference between "getting people to see things your way" and getting them to just shut up!!! But that fine point gets lost when Mercury in Aries gets excited. People may call this "communicating," which it is, technically, ... but they really just want to get their views some air-time. Speech and writing may be blunt, self-assured, contentious -- and inflammatory.

Under stress with Mercury in Aries, attitudes are impatient, defiant, and arrogant. Other people's ideas are met with contempt and irritability, and the intellectual climate is overbearing, self-willed and uncooperative. Mercury in Aries stressed is the hallmark of the loud-mouthed know-it-all.

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.

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 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.

The Lunar Light

The Moon Position Presently Indicates:
You're ready to get some work done. The trouble is ... there is so darn much of it facing you. Just getting organized is an issue ... let alone making any progress. Worse, your Inner Critic is having a field day bearing down hard on your Inner Workaholic.

You feel vulnerable, browbeaten and desperate to get out from under this pressure. Predictably, the result is depression ... which is no help really. Beating yourself up does not motivate you. It just adds to the inertia.

Ask your Inner Critic where to start on this mountain of work. See what answers you get ... and see if beginning there persuades him to cut you some slack.

The Next Lunar Aspect Will Be:
The Moon in Libra Sextile Venus in Sagittarius on Mon 11th of Dec 2017 at 11:41 pm MST

The Moon Is Void of Course:
until it enters Libra on Sun 10th of Dec 2017 at 10:01 pm MST
