That was just after the New Year, from January 2 until Mercury stationed retrograde on January 5 and headed back into the sign of Capricorn on January 9 .
Well, he’s baaaaaaaack!
Well, the combo of Mercury & Aquarius is one of the best for thoughts that move with the rapidity of an electric impulse through the brain and down the spinal cord. This neuro-electricity conducts messages from brain to mouth, or to other parts of the body, and the body responds.
How Can We Put This Energy To Best Use?
We’ve already discussed that Aquarius is an energy filled with the potential for aha! moments and revelations. When they come, they come quickly. How can we not lose them in the hurried pace of our everyday lives?
Hmm…well, here’s one trick I’ve recently discovered. I carry an mp3 recorder with me when I go out in order to capture my thoughts when I’m on the move, walking, in the car, etc. I find this to be extremely helpful because you know how it goes: you can write an entire novel in the shower but as soon as you step out to dry yourself off–poof!–the idea vanishes into the mist…
How can you capture these aha! moments best? In any way that fits into your schedule, I say. You can also keep a notebook or a pad by your bedside and jot down notes before going to sleep or immediately upon awakening. A recorder is even better but of course you have to transcribe it.
The good news? There’s software out there to help you do this–and it’s free! There’s Audacity and others–a quick google search–computers, after all, correlate with Aquarius energy–can prove useful in your research.
Which brings me to another point. Anyone notice the recent news about the discovery of gravitation waves in the universe? The ones that prove Einsteins’s 100 year-old theory of relativity is not just a theory?
Aquarius energy represents science, technology, computers, and also astrology. When Mercury transits through this sign perhaps it’s time for a computer upgrade?
Or maybe thinking about or searching for a new way to communicate through your technology, such as the one I just mentioned—finding a way to transcribe your tapes without having to do it yourself or pay someone else.
Or how about taking up the study of astrology? Stranger things have happened when Mercury flies through Aquarius!
Feel Free To Do Your Own Thing!
Aquarians prize above all else their freedom. The true Aquarius nature is in somebody who requires freedom to be able to think independently. And because so much of their thinking is often about the betterment of mankind, which is to say humanitarian, he or she needs to be able to roam freely in their mind in order to come up with new outside-the-box solutions to old problems.
Aquarius energy is also extremely innovative.
So go forth and innovate, I say. Those who are resistant to change won’t like it. And those who are in positions of power–who are resistant to change–definitely won’t like it.
Contemplate this: is it time to think about making a change where you’re not always bucking up against the powers that be, where you have the capability to be and do and think freely? Where you may implement what you want without the naysayers gathering around you in a circle, looking at you perplexed or confused–or worse yet, with disdain.
That’s what makes Aquarius feel like the outsider. When the group comes down hard on you because they simply can’t see the possibilities that you’ve envisioned so clearly in your mind’s eye as the light bulb went on.
And it’s the testing of these ideas, through our conviction about and/or commitment to them, that provides us the ability to put aside our concerns about what other people will think–i.e., that we’re crazy–that helps give form and shape to these concepts.
So from now until March 5–when Mercury moves on to the sign of Pisces–I wanna see you be brave and do your own thing!
