Mercury enters Aries on April 17, 2019 at 2:00 am ET.
Mercury in Aries signifies a lot of ideas and inspiration that arises quickly. Of all the signs, I know more Aries people than any other and they certainly do tend to think fast and talk fast and have especially enthusiastic personalities. I also have my Mercury in Aries so I know what it is like to think and learn quickly. Mercury in Aries can be great for those that like to be assertive and decisive and those that appreciate stimulating conversations.
The buzz of excitement and enthusiasm can be contagious and uplifting which is great! There are lots of birds doing lots of talking these days now too, adding to the elation that spring has arrived!
The mind will run faster with Mercury in Aries, which can actually lead some to feel anxious, restless and nervous while others will feel more excited and enthusiastic. A good representation of Mercury in Aries would be someone eagerly gabbing rapidly after having a few highly caffeinated coffees!
New information and ideas can be more intriguing and kick off new, inspiring directions of thought. A sudden change of mind when new info arrives is common. This can make it challenging to spend long periods concentrating and studying, so many breaks for a change of pace is likely necessary to make the most of learning new info. Variety keeps things interesting.
Writing down your ideas is recommended. With so many ideas showing up you are likely to forget some along the way. Keep your pen and notebook, or note taking app ready.
Aries is a Cardinal sign, so ideas that arise during this period can bring new beginnings. The issue with Cardinal signs though, is that initiating new starts are likely, but following through to completion can be more difficult, requiring extra an extra push. Keep things interesting and inspiring along the way to keep the motivation going forward.
This can be a great time for entrepreneurs to initiate new starts to inspired, pioneering business ideas.
Witty responses are also a hallmark of Mercury in Aries. The personality can shine with amazing key words and phrases that bring energizing, bright intelligence to the forefront. This is a great placement for comedians to come up with just the right responses in no time!
There can be a level of young energy and potentially naivety with Mercury in Aries. Looking mainly at just the surface and the superficial without going too deep into facts and underlying reasons is common with Mercury in Aries.
Jumping to conclusions right away and being too hasty is certainly a factor to consider with Mercury in Aries as well. So, if you find that you are making decisions rather quickly or you are swiftly forming opinions about people without thinking things through first. Making fast decisions can also lead to mistakes if you are just skimming information so do try to remember to tone down the swiftness in situations that require a slower approach, like signing contracts.
Those with tempers could immediately bark out quick responses in situations in a road rage fashion, sending out darts of reactionary words.
Sports cars and driving fast can appeal to the ego with Mercury in Aries. Traveling short distances quickly and efficiently is of interest here.
Bosses, leaders and business owners can be impatient and push employees to think faster to work faster.
Mercury will meet Chiron in Aries, on April 19, 2019 at 7:45 pm ET which inspires us to think about how we are dealing with personal wounds regarding our identities and personalities. Much of the wounds embedded in our personalities can be formed in childhood.
Fast moving Mercury will be in Aries until May 6, 2019.
