All fired up!
“Mercury in Aries, helps to fire up the mental energies and encourage action or the pursuit of new ways, ideas, paths and possibilities.” –Dipali Desai
As Mercury transitions from peaceful, dreamy, Pisces to bold and brash Aries, our minds and our words will get less poetic and more action-oriented. Directness of speech, fast perceptions and an attitude of “just do it” mark this transit. While Mercury sprints through Aries, we may feel the impulse to cut through and get to the point in conversations and other forms of communication.
Body language speaks loudly now, as do actions. At its best, this transit can help words, awareness and insight to arise spontaneously, combined with the courage to express them. Our thoughts and ideas are pioneering, and we tend to speak more spontaneously and directly. On the other hand, we could also say things out of anger, impatience or impulse that we later regret.
Aries is a Fire sign known for being impulsive, so we must be careful what we say! Comments might be blurted out before they’re fully formed, giving them a tinge of sarcasm or even an edge of insult — whether we intend them to or not. And even if we think we know the full impact of our words, there’s the danger that we haven’t thought far enough ahead about the effect they’ll have on those we care about. It may be a time when we’d rather cut to the chase – acknowledge things and move on – rather than hang around to process the details.
It is a good time to think independently and follow our thoughts into new perspectives. Aries is the first zodiac sign — literally, a true leader. Our thoughts and speech become more courageous, but more than that, this pioneering sign could make us more innovative, too. It will be easier to think of fresh, brilliant solutions to nagging problems as we receive rushes of fresh inspiration. And with rebellious Uranus in Aries, too, we can really expect this innovative energy to fly off the charts. But catch this inspiration as fast as it comes, because Aries is not known for being patient. In fact, it may be more difficult to complete everyday tasks if they lack the flavor of excitement.
