In addition to being a brainy transit, Mercury in Aquarius is also a bit offbeat. Our thoughts will certainly be inventive, possibly to the point of being eccentric or downright weird -- there’s a fine line between being "weird" and being a genius, right? This ends up being a good thing since we’ll have the ability to look at life from a different angle and gain fresh perspectives. And because Aquarius is very forward-looking, we may also spend time thinking about how to make our futures bright.
When Mercury is in Aquarius
Our thoughts and ideas become more progressive when Mercury sets up camp in Aquarius. This sign is known for pushing the envelope, so when it pairs up with the planet of mental activity, we’ll want to consider what could be rather than what is. We shouldn’t be surprised if we come up with a few far-fetched and wacky ideas during Mercury in Aquarius.
Aquarius is about remaining neutral and not letting our feelings get in the way of the truth. So when Mercury does his trek through this sign, we’ll have the opportunity to view the things we’re emotionally invested in through a more rational lens. This approach could finally help us see people and situations for what they really are. Expect a few "a-ha" moments courtesy of this dynamic duo!
The one thing to watch out for during Mercury’s time in this sign is hurting or neglecting other people’s feelings. The cerebral nature of Mercury in Aquarius can overpower emotions and rationalize them away, making it difficult to feel. It’s possible that we’ll lose touch with our sensitive sides, so we need to do our best to handle any conversations we have during this time with care.
