Mercury Enters Aquarius: Think Outside the Box

Mercury Enters Aquarius: Think Outside the Box
“We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down.”
-- Kurt Vonnegut

When the planet of communication and messages moves into the fixed Air sign of Aquarius January 19 through February 5, we’re being asked to push our ideas to the next level. Aquarius is the sign concerned with mental values, and the fixed nature of the sign can certainly bring out a stubborn quality to defending our notions of right and wrong.

The higher aspect of the sign is the ability to detach and look at things objectively. However, if you’re trying to have a heart-to-heart with someone during this phase, try to appeal to their reasoning rather than their feelings. Anything too mushy-gushy isn’t going to fly now.

The best way to use this transit is to access the quirky and experimental nature of Aquarius. Push your mind to the most eccentric and bizarre thought channels possible. Play with language and watch how easy it is to take a more rebellious approach to your normal way of thinking and communicating.

Aquarius is also the sign of invention, so this is an excellent time to allow your mind to come up with wonderfully new and strange ideas, creations or future projects. People are less likely to care what others think about what they have to say, and language may be more blunt if not shocking over the next few weeks.

Aquarius rules friendships and goals, so put your mental energy into either of these life arenas and you’ll see awesome results. It’s also the sign of humanitarian pursuits; there will be more chatter around issues that affect the group rather than people complaining about individual petty gripes. It’s time push the envelope mentally and apply our intelligence in the direction that will serve the many instead of the few.
