As Mercury moves into Aquarius and the mind buzzes with crackling electric excitement, the result is lightning quick speed of electric conduction that runs through the nerve endings to and from our brain.
Snap, Crackle, Aha!
Aquarius energy, ruled by Uranus–the great awakener and lord of thunderbolts & lightning–can be unexpected & erratic, making revelatory aha! moments plentiful when Mercury transits through this electric, eclectic, outside the box, march to the beat of your own drummer sign.
You may think and speak quickly as your brain makes connections quickly and you process information at lightning speed. You may also derive your ideas from unexpected sources.
Aquarius energy is both revelatory and rebellious. The universe doesn’t like stasis or stagnation, and Uranus is the planet & Aquarius the energy that sees to it that we don’t stay stuck in a rut forever.
If you are person who welcomes change, then Uranus is your guy.
If you are a person who abhors change, then in some sense at least Uranus is, if not your enemy, then certainly not well liked. Often this may be because one who espouses and/or embraces change bucks up against the status quo.
But change things must for it is the law of energy & of the universe.
Where can you make these changes through the introduction of a new perspective or new way or perceiving the world around you?
Where have you been itching to say what you want to say even if it’s different from what everyone else has to say?
The dark side of Mercury in Aquarius is that Aquarian energy—while it likes to think differently from the majority and the rest of the sheeple—can also lead one to believe that she has truth with a capital “T.”
Ergo, one can become an ideologue married to a certain thought process or way of thinking that is so outside the box–or about which one is so adamant–that one alienates oneself in the process of expressing these theories, ideas, thought, teachings, etc.
Snap, Crackle, Eureka!
Your brain, as Mercury moves into Aquarius, is rife with the possibility of breaking through to a new way of thinking…
Who says it can’t be done? Not someone with a lot of Aquarius energy in their chart, that’s for sure!
But where might one react in knee-jerk fashion simply because one is not interested in following the conventional path? The key here is to go deep about whether you are rebelling for rebellion’s sake, or if you truly feel it…
Right it, speak it, feel it the way you do, regardless of how different that is from the way anyone else writes, speaks or feels.
Justify your viewpoint not with righteousness, but because in order to arrive at that viewpoint you have searched all the highways and byways in an all-inclusive open-minded manner and can objectively see different sides and points of view.
When the discernment used to arrive at your conclusion is one that is well thought out through observation & correlation, or a more scientifically objective manner, you are bound to stand out from the rest in true intellectual Aquarian fashion: AS BRILLIANT!
