Mercury in Aquarius Is the Breath of Fresh Air You've Been Waiting For
16th January 2020

If you woke up with a better attitude than you’ve had since literally forever ago, you can thank Mercury! Mercury, the planet of communication, commerce, and travel enters fixed air sign Aquarius on Thursday, after a very long trek through earthy Capricorn. While Mercury was in Capricorn, it had to survive:

But now, Mercury is finally free! The air signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius are enjoying Mercury’s vibes here the most, while fixed signs Taurus, Scorpio, and Leo can anticipate getting super busy during this transit.

So since Mercury = communication, and Air signs (like Aquarius) = the most communicative signs, it makes sense that Mercury tends to have a good time when it’s transiting Aquarius. Aquarius is the zodiac’s humanitarian. People of an Aquarian nature are naturally charismatic, helpful, and social, so you’re feeling these same vibes while Mercury is speeding through Aquarius. You’re making new friends every day, you’re getting aaaalllll the Tinder matches, and when it comes to work/your career, networking has never been easier!

It’s not all fun and games with Mercury in Aquarius, though. First off, be mindful that yet another Mercury Retrograde is looming on the horizon. It’s still a little far off (it doesn’t start until February 16), but the important thing for you to know about this retch-rograde is that it will (partially) be in Aquarius. Mercury Retrograde starts in Pisces, but will shuffle back into Aquarius on March 4, turns direct on March 9, then re-enters Pisces (going the right direction again) on March 16. So mark your calendars, y’all.

There’s also a lot to be said about Mercury in Aquarius’ tendency to make you feel detached from your feelings. Aquarius isn’t the least emotional sign per se, but it’s way more brainy and intellectual than it is emotionally competent. Don’t let this make you insensitive or cold towards others. You can use this energy to detach from your feelings in a healthy way—it can help you eliminate preconceived notions or biases you have towards others and be more open-minded and open-hearted towards people from all walks of life.

Overall, Mercury in Aquarius is a happy time. Its light and airy vibes are a major change from all of the stern Capricorn energy coming from the cosmos, so enjoy it! I cannot emphasize how much it bears repeating: it’s been rough out there lately: 2019 was a bust, 2020 started off pretty rough, but Mercury in Aquarius (aside from its little retrograde in February) is giving you the breath of fresh air you need to proceed forward with the new year!
