After enduring two months of murky, messy miscommunication mayhem, the messenger planet is finally moving out of the non-verbal waters of Pisces. Hopefully you’ve reaped the benefits of learning to feel with your brain and listen like a psychic when words fail ... and with the recent Mercury Retrograde in foggy Pisces, verbal failure was a daily affair.
Miscommunication almost always leads to tension and complications, so you’ll be happy to hear that the airwaves are about to get clear. Fear no more, as Mercury moves into the straight-shooting fires of Aries for the next few weeks. We are all getting ready to speak our minds -- loudly. No more beating around the bush or passive-aggressively stating what we want. We’ll have no problem with declaring our needs, wants and must-haves.
The only problem is that we’re all apt to shoot our mouths off without thinking first. Expect many hotheads running the show. We’re all more likely to scream and shout when we don’t get our way versus taking the quiet, calm and placid approach. Conversations can quickly escalate before you know it. Watch your words and make sure you’re not adding fuel to the fire.
This is an excellent transit for saying what you mean without any sugar coating. We can be direct, to the point and immediate in our delivery. Know that actions speak louder than words when Mercury is in the sign of action, Aries. Cut to the chase in conversations as patience and tolerance for rambling is in short supply during this phase.
This is a time for independent thinking. If you want respect, don’t look for approval for your thoughts or opinions. People aren’t going to coddle you now. Death to the victim mindset, Mercury in Aries screams, “I am that I am!”
