Mercury moves into Aquarius on January 24th.
Yeah, so what? I hear you say. ‘I’m not an Aquarian,’ you say, ‘so it can’t affect me.’
Yeah…nah. The thing is, the movement of the planets provides the planetary or astro weather forecast for all of us. That means that like it or not, Aquarian or not, for the few weeks that Mercury is in Aquarius, whatever part of your chart is ruled by Aquarius will be where you start to ask more questions, look for more knowledge, want to know stuff…think a little differently.
It’s also a good few weeks to do some future planning, get your head around the latest and greatest app or social media platform and to have that relationship talk that you’ve been needing to have. Actually, I lied about the last one. It’s not a great time at all to do communication that is deep and meaningful in nature. Wait for Mercury in Pisces for that – and bring tissues….just saying.
Want to know more? Of course you do – especially if you have Mercury in Aquarius, or Mercury conjunct Uranus. Duck over and have a look at something I prepared (much) earlier. The link is here.
Doing it for yourself…

We just started Aquarius season on the 20th, so with an added planet within this sign we will be looking at living more authentically and disregarding those who don’t agree. Mercury will be camped out in this sign until February 10th when he moves into Pisces, creating a very different energy for us and our relationships.
Aquarius are sometimes seen as not caring and while they are more detached emotionally than other signs, they still care. They see a bigger picture; they aren’t just looking at what is right in front of them or what’s obvious, but they’re looking beyond that into what the greater meaning and significance of what situations or even feeling represents.
Aquarians are rebels, sometimes considered weird and can even be loners. In this case, we’re coming off Mercury in Capricorn which was largely about ideas for the future, plans, and how we choose to share them with others.
In some ways, Mercury in Capricorn can be like that overzealous child who likes to tell everyone everything they are planning to do, but as we get older, we start to realize that sometimes big moves need to be done ourselves. The thing we are also focusing on right now, based on the current astrology including eclipse season, are our core needs and what self-love means to us.
It’s likely that any big plans we have for ourselves this year had some tie-in with needing to meet our own needs and practicing self-love. This is because we’ve realized that we can’t expect someone outside of ourselves to help us succeed and feel more confident if we haven’t been able to do that for ourselves.
As we began the year, we were feeling really excited and positive with Mercury in Capricorn, and we likely saw a lot of plans declared or even those who wanted to show just how well they were feeling in part to prove it to themselves. However, as we shift into Aquarius, it’s going to bring a more real energy.
While Aquarius may not wear their heart on their sleeve, it’s within this sign that lets us detach and look at emotional matters more logically. Sometimes, while we do need to remain heart-centered, our emotions can drown out how we feel about someone, partly because one of our biggest obstacles is being honest with ourselves.
Mercury in Aquarius prefers only truth, which means we could not only see a lot of those moments in which we suddenly realize who we want and how we feel, but also what we need. The thing that makes this sign different from other rebellious signs like Sagittarius is that Aquarian energy doesn’t care what other people say or think.
Aquarians don’t care if someone thinks they’re crazy or wrong because, in their hearts, they know they are making the choices they are meant to. They have a confidence about them that lets them not only believe in themselves and how they are feeling, but also enables them to act upon it and communicate it to others along the way.
While this transit is going to affect how we plan and communicate in the next month, there is a bigger storyline going on and that is how this transit, days after our eclipse, will come to affect our next six months.
