Mercury went into Aries on Tuesday March 22 AEDT where it will reside until April 6. Here’s my take on how it may express in that sign
Mercury in Aries thinks and talks quickly and decisively. And being ever ready to engage in argument and debate, it positively relishes an intellectual challenge. Its communicating style is forthright and assertive, and even outright aggressive in an all male context. Words are weapons for this Mercury, and suitably armed, it makes a powerful advocate for a cause, and at best can be an inspiring orator. Aries also gives Mercury an aptitude for original or futuristic thinking and spontaneous expression. Tact and sensitivity are not strong points, so don’t ask this straight-talker what it thinks if you can’t handle hearing the truth. In business, Aries Mercury people enjoy the challenge of meeting sales targets and are well suited to venture projects, where the big profits go to those willing to risk all on the ‘next big thing’. Negatively, they can turn every discussion into a competitive argument, and lack the ability to genuinely listen.
