Mercury is the planet of communication, ruling your mental sphere. From talking and thinking to writing, tweeting, texting -- speed-demon Mercury helps you to get your ideas across efficiently and articulately. When it’s in Aquarius, the sign of communal networks and technology, you can expect your social scene to skyrocket.
Adding to the social mood of the moment, Mars -- the planet of passion and desire -- is currently spending a long stretch in Libra, the sign of relationships and diplomacy. Mars isn’t exactly comfortable in this constellation, but because it’s making a positive trine aspect with Mercury this week, it will definitely improve conditions in your social and business life.
This is a great time to meet new people and make important contacts, whether you’re online or off. Be ready! Make sure you have business cards with you wherever you go. Freshen up your website, and make sure your bio or your business profile information is up to date. Consider revising your logo if it’s been a while.
If you’ve been quiet on the Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest front since the holidays, get back to it! Comment on people’s posts and get interactive. It’s also an excellent time to reach out to contacts you met a while back -- make sure they remember who you are and what you’re capable of.
Even if your job (or the job you want) doesn’t require you to spend time in the space of social media, there are still ways to seize this moment. You’re probably having new ideas at a fast and furious rate, so pitch them to higher-ups. You can also revise your resume if you’re job hunting. Finally, if you’re an artist, spend some serious, quality time writing in your journal -- and trust that brilliant ideas will flow!
