ARIES - "I AM, 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 Aries, will have their Mercury within 1 Sun Sign on either side of Aries or it will be in the sign of Aries. This means there are only three possibilities that an Aries Sun Sign individual might have their Mercury in -- Mercury in Taurus, Mercury in Aries 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 (Libra) or the four signs on each side Libra (Scorpio, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius) and (Gemini, Cancer, Leo, Virgo).
Mercury in the sign of Aries is the classic 'Rash Thinker', which is one who makes decisions without thinking of the consequences. And no, President Trump does not have his Mercury in Aries, he has a Mercury in Cancer, which is the one who has their 'finger on the pulse of the public'.
Mercury in Aries is an independent thinker and is indicative of one who talks quickly, and likes to think up new ideas. There may be flashes of intuition that come in the form of bubbles that pop up above the that are filled with captions. Mercury in Aries suggests ways of thinking that are decisive and to the point. "LET'S JUST DO THIS!" This Mercury transit is argumentative by nature and enjoys competing mentally. This placement enjoys a Good mind wrestle that engages in original mental play. This transit of Mercury creates new ideas out of thin air and enjoys intellectual adventures.
Mercury in Aries thinks and debates well on its feet, but may become impatient with opponents or opposition. This transit absolutely abhors delays. "LET'S DO IT NOW!" Roadblocks are frustrating to no end and immediately puts the native in an aggressive state wanting to ram down the gate that closed in its face. This attitude may extend to areas of life other than speech, communication, and decision-making. This transit can cause fast driving and impatience in traffic that can easily turn into road rage.
It may be difficult to concentrate on any one subject for very long. This can cause one to jump to conclusions quickly with little hesitation. Impulsiveness can also be a problem. If this trait is not controlled in daily living, then it will appear to have a type of intellectual egotism that is most unattractive.
Guard yourself against becoming too headstrong in your thinking and decision-making. A quick temper is sometimes a by-product of this placement, which can leave you without anyone to communicate with by this transits end date.
The mind is witty and inventive, which makes for a very quick mental trigger. BOOM, YOU SAID IT! This transit makes it easy to come up with a clever answer and quick repartee to any question. I'm thinking that Lorelai and Rory Gilmore (from the Gilmore Girls) both have this placement. Actually this thought caused me to wonder if the creator of Gilmore Girls has this placement, so I looked up Amy Sherman-Palladino's birthdate (the creator) and I can't find it anywhere. DANG IT! While this transit may not be the best at digging deeply in to subject matter, when it comes to having some sort of an answer quickly, this transit will surely lead the pack and deliver, ready to go with keys in hand or a snappy answer.
