AQUARIUS - "I KNOW, THEREFORE I AM."
Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
Here is a nice little piece of Mercury trivia for you. Mercury will never be more than one Sun Sign away from the Sun. This means someone who has their Sun in Aquarius, will have their Mercury within 1 Sun Sign on either side of Aquarius or it will be in the sign of Aquarius. This means there are only three possibilities that an Aquarius Sun Sign individual might have their Mercury in -- Mercury in Capricorn Mercury in Aquarius or Mercury in Pisces. This helps you guess someone's Mercury even if you don't know their exact birthdate but you know their Sun Sign. You can pretty much rule out Mercury in the opposite sign (Leo) or the four signs on each side Leo (Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius) and (Cancer, Gemini, Taurus, Aries).
When Mercury, the planet of the mind, enters the Sun Sign of Aquarius, this is not only a meeting of the minds, it is mental energy that is open to new thoughts, ideas and experiences. More people will be trying new things during this period of time. There is a search for answers that are based in Truth. The traditional accepted way of doing things is tired, old, boring and may not be working anymore and it is time to change gears and do them differently. After all, Aquarius is THE MOST inventive and innovative sign of the zodiac.
If you are looking for originality or a time to be original, it is when Mercury is in Aquarius. That's because Aquarius is naturally aloof and distant; therefore, they are not attached so they are never really surprised by much. What some might find impossible to believe or understand, Aquarius can shrug it off and say, "Yeah, I can understand how that could be possible."
There is such a mental change in energy during this time that you may see yourself getting rid of old things or changing your approach or lifestyle. Out with the old and in with the new! Aquarius is the sign of 'the future' therefore the mind is set firmly on the future. Whatever house is reflected below for your sign, there is a futuristic focus on this particular subject matter. If you notice from the Aquarian glyph, energy (knowledge) is being poured out into the ethers. Pouring energy!
This is a really great placement for Mercury because Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, which is the natural ruler of Aquarius. In other words, Mercury is very comfortable here as if it is in its exaltation. Mercury rules the mind and the intellect and Aquarius is one of the three intellectual air signs (Aquarius, Gemini and Libra). Since this placement acts as though it is in its exaltation (higher form) this increases the need and desire for Good communication that transcends human understanding and turns more Universal and ethereal. This is why Mercury in Aquarius is often seen as telepathic and that of a mind reader. Notice how you will be able to communicate with fewer words or even with the nod of your head. You may find yourself joining or engaging in a group effort where there is truly a 'meeting of the minds'. This is because Aquarius rules groups, memberships, friends, socializing and organizations. Yep, a true meeting of the minds. Stay Astrologized™. Now click your Sun Sign below and go to your Monthly Horoscope to read how it impacts your entire Sun Sign.
