Yesterday afternoon, Mercury changed signs from practical, cautious, accomplishment-oriented Capricorn to freedom-loving, forward-thinking, objective Aquarius, where it will journey until March 5th.
Mercury represents mind, and is a quick-moving planet that spends two to three weeks in a sign, unless retrograde. With Mercury in Aquarius, everyone’s style of communication becomes rather unconventional. Visionary and brilliant ideas bubble over. Thanks to an inventive mindset, conversations become more far-out and debates are favored over chattiness. Your powers of observation and detachment are greater now. The mind is logical.
For the next three weeks, we tend to contradict others more quickly, and offer a different perspective. We enjoy intellectual debates. We are quicker and more alert; our powers of observation are particularly strong.
We have something interesting to say, and our perspective on issues can be delightfully unusual and surprisingly insightful. This makes for some great conversations. We are more attracted to scientific and/or metaphysical pursuits right now. Anything that promises progress and advancement for mankind has special appeal.
Do you have your Ascendant or Sun-sign in Gemini or Virgo? If so, you will feel a greater need for focusing on your future and any humanitarian causes.
