So, Mercury is on deck to join Venus in Aquarius Sunday the 4th at around 10PM EST. Just two short hours before the Cancer/Capricorn Full Moon.
Nearly back to back ingresses for the powerhouse worker bees extraordinaire!
Just gettin’ amped for when they conjunct on the 12th is all! More about that later.
The winged Messenger is going to be in Aquarius for awhile, since on January 21st he will Retrograde at 17º, to begin Direct motion again on February 11th at 1º. More on this later, as well.
Aquarius is Fixed Air, ruled by Uranus.
This signals an inconsistent yet stubborn intellectual disposition geared toward radical mental exploration.
As Hermes flies through the sign of the Water Bearer our minds gravitate to solid facts and lofty humanitarian goals. Social reform and humankind’s greatest potential. Aquarius gladly bends the rules to breaking in search for absolute universal ‘truth’.
All Air signs love the role of Devil’s advocate, and Mercury in the 11th sign is it’s champion. Nothing like a bit of controversial pot stirring to get this astro placement giddy.
Collectively, under this transit, we will be able to see and synthesize BIG picture concepts a bit easier. There may be a tendency to become over-opinionated and cold, but our minds could just as easily bend toward the innovative and genius.
All are Aquarius’ bread and butter.
Yes, during Mercury’s time in the 11th sign, we get a chance to release the need to be liked—that is not high on the priority list.
And instead, think up glorious tenets of eccentric dogma capable of blowing our minds wide open.
Just right to keep us entertained during a cold, long winter season.
