There’s no better time to get social! Mercury -- the planet of ideas and communication -- entered forward-thinking Aquarius on January 11, 2014. Intellect trumps emotions now, as this Air sign helps us take a detached and cerebral approach to everything. Our thinking can expand far outside the usual bounds, until we ask, “What box?”

Mercury in Aquarius ramps up mental activity, flooding the mind with brilliant ideas and “what if” scenarios. It’s the sign of social media, communication on a mass scale. The downside: Aquarius can get lost in concepts and hyper-abstract thinking, and is often insensitive to others’ feelings. Which leads to feeling all alone and way out on a tangent.

This week, it’s Mars to the rescue! On January 24, it will be in Libra and form a congenial trine aspect to Mercury in Aquarius. Mars is the planet of action and initiative, the urge to get out of bed in the morning and go conquer the world. Traditionally it's not believed to function very well in Libra, a sign that needs to consult and weigh alternatives before acting.

Transiting Mars trine Mercury turns the curse into a blessing. All week long, it won’t be enough to have a brilliant idea. You’ll want to talk it over with someone. It might be face-to-face over coffee or in an online forum or Twitter blitz. And once the interaction starts, great things begin to happen! A synergy is created that multiplies the possibilities exponentially.

The Aquarian influence might nudge you towards a group of like-minded people. Mars' initiative will help you make one if it doesn’t already exist! You could go big and decide to launch a publicity campaign for your company. Or organize an online initiative to benefit your favorite charity. Or maybe you’ll update your LinkedIn or Tumblr profiles, expand your Pinterest presence or add a new tool to your social media toolbox.

Even though your social media calendar will be full, schedule time to examine your life from a different angle. You might be surprised what it looks like from a new perspective. Use the future-minded Aquarian energy to plan a brighter tomorrow. And employ the Libran energy to rally a dynamic team to help you make it happen.

Another possibility: Aquarian brilliant thinking will blossom into a full-blown “Eureka!” moment. Because it’s a trine aspect, inspiration will come easily. Don’t discount its importance because you didn’t have to work for it. This is a time of insight and inspiration.

Mercury will spend more time than usual in Aquarius, as Mars will in Libra due to the retrograde cycles in effect. This will open a few windows in the months ahead just in case you didn’t have time to implement all your excellent ideas. Make sure to keep notes this week, just in case!
