Mercury in Aries
Mercury is shifting signs today from dreamy, creative Pisces and into enthusiastic, direct Aries, where it remains until April 5th. So our thinking process speeds up and we feel more like starting new endeavors. We can be intense and focused about reaching our goals, and we need to do it as quickly as possible. Communication will be more impulsive and impatient, so it can be difficult to keep quiet…we just simply want answers now.
With mental Mercury in Aries we are more brave and courageous. We refuse to let anything get in our way, because we want what we want and we want it right now! It’s important to really keep yourself in check during this aspect, in regards to how you express yourself. It’s easy to express our thoughts and feelings without much thought first! It can happen so fast we don’t even realize what we are saying sometimes, like a fuse to a firecracker has been lit and there’s nothing we can do. It’s just boom, and we can suddenly be explosive.
Some folks may get pretty inappropriate during the Moon in Aries, so choose your words wisely and carefully, take a moment before reacting (if you can.) We’re all going to feel the energy of the Aries Moon quite strongly, so it’s best not to take things so seriously or to heart. Try to understand Aries energy is all about telling it like it is, and speaking the truth. We might as well just accept this is going to be part of the equation for a little while as we enter “Aries Season.” If you feel ignored or like someone is being insensitive, breathe and try to not react, walk away! Think about the word “Strategy” instead, and how you can deal with the situation again later. Being strategic is the best way to handle Aries energy, which means listen, plan, think and don’t react.
Now if there’s something you really need to get off your chest and the other person can’t seem to hear you..or if you need to stick up for yourself, I say have at it! It’s time to tell it like it is! But be careful about how you choose to convey your words. We can be extremely direct and hurt people if we’re not careful. Also do remember to focus on yourself and take responsibility for how you are communicating in this energy.
