AQUARIUS - "I KNOW, THEREFORE I AM."
Mercury moves into Aquarius on Thursday, January 16, 2020 until Tuesday, February 3, 2020 where it will then move into Pisces. Mercury will turn Retrograde on February 16, 2020 where it will then move back into Aquarius on March 4, 2020 until March 16, 2020 where it will then move back into Pisces under Direct status. Mercury turns Direct on March 9, 2020.
Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
Here is a nice little piece of Mercury trivia for you. Mercury will never be more than one Sun Sign away from the Sun. This means someone who has their Sun in Aquarius, will have their Mercury within 1 Sun Sign on either side of Aquarius or it will be in the sign of Aquarius. This means there are only three possibilities that an Aquarius Sun Sign individual might have their Mercury in -- Mercury in Capricorn Mercury in Aquarius or Mercury in Pisces. This helps you guess someone's Mercury even if you don't know their exact birthdate but you know their Sun Sign. You can pretty much rule out Mercury in the opposite sign (Leo) or the four signs on each side Leo (Virgo, Libra, Scorpio, Sagittarius) and (Cancer, Gemini, Taurus, Aries).
When Mercury, the planet of the mind, enters the Sun Sign of Aquarius, this is not only a meeting of the minds, it is mental energy that is open to new thoughts, ideas and experiences. More people will be trying new things during this period of time. There is a search for answers that are based in Truth. The traditional accepted way of doing things is tired, old, boring and may not be working anymore and it is time to change gears and do them differently. After all, Aquarius is THE MOST inventive and innovative sign of the zodiac.
If you are looking for originality or a time to be original, it is when Mercury is in Aquarius. That's because Aquarius is naturally aloof and distant; therefore, they are not attached so they are never really surprised by much. What some might find impossible to believe or understand, Aquarius can shrug it off and say, "Yeah, I can understand how that could be possible."
There is such a mental change in energy during this time that you may see yourself getting rid of old things or changing your approach or lifestyle. Out with the old and in with the new! Aquarius is the sign of 'the future' therefore the mind is set firmly on the future. Whatever house is reflected below for your sign, there is a futuristic focus on this particular subject matter. If you notice from the Aquarian glyph, energy (knowledge) is being poured out into the ethers. Pouring energy!
The Sun in Aquarius, as well as, Mercury in Aquarius is the walking encyclopedia. They know more useless, unimportant and trivial information than anyone. It's hilarious. These individuals know absolutely something about everything. It's the most amazing dang thing I have ever seen or heard. Aquarian's also have no problem telling you 'what' they know and 'that' they know it. They will use phrases such as, "I know" and "I told you so." At the same time, Aquarius has a knack for making more mistakes than any other sign because they are so locked on what 'they' know that they might forget the intuitive knowingness or forget who they know. Aquarius can be quite stubborn and is quite capable of completely ignoring someone else's input. After all, Aquarius is a fixed sign, so changing their mind is no easy task. At the same time, Aquarius fully enjoys intellectual banter; therefore, in relationships, Aquarius needs intellectual stimulation before you EVER get those pants off of them. (winky wink) I have two very close 'bestee' friends who are Aquarian's, one male and one female. One minute we are talking about the distillation process of moonshine and the next minute we are talking about tectonic plates in the earth's crust. Then the conversation changes to flying buttresses, then shifts to making a cake with a dutch oven and a tripod while camping. I really dig on Aquarian energy, but of course I would because I have Jupiter in Aquarius in my Natal Chart, which makes me a 'know it all' in my own right. Talk about expanded knowledge. BRING IT BABY! Astrology naturally rules Aquarius so naturally I would turn out to be an astrologer putting my Jupiter in Aquarius to work for me.
There is something to be said for "knowingness" on an intuitive level, which is also the gift of Aquarius. You don't know why you know what you know, but you know. If there is anything that Aquarian energy can teach us right now is to trust your knowingness . . heck, THEY DO! Go with it folks! Take on this incredible sense of knowingness to help you feed your futuristic pursuits. Aquarius is the revolutionary character of the zodiac, which rules the future, and this is where you will find your independent and rebellious streak. So it's not just what you know, it's who you know and your knowingness.. Remember, Aquarius is the circulator of groups, friends, organizations and gatherings, as well as, the ruler of the circulatory system.
This is a really great placement for Mercury because Uranus is the higher octave of Mercury, which is the natural ruler of Aquarius. In other words, Mercury is very comfortable here as if it is in its exaltation. Mercury rules the mind and the intellect and Aquarius is one of the three intellectual air signs (Aquarius, Gemini and Libra). Since this placement acts as though it is in its exaltation (higher form) this increases the need and desire for Good communication that transcends human understanding and turns more Universal and ethereal. This is why Mercury in Aquarius is often seen as telepathic and that of a mind reader. Notice how you will be able to communicate with fewer words or even with the nod of your head. You may find yourself joining or engaging in a group effort where there is truly a 'meeting of the minds'. This is because Aquarius rules groups, memberships, friends, socializing and organizations. Yep, a true meeting of the minds. Stay Astrologized™.
