On February 7th, 2017, Mercury enters Aquarius, astral sign which the planet will transit for two weeks and a half, until February 25th. Mercury was a major Roman god, having essentially the same aspects as the Greek god Hermes. He was the winged messenger of Olympian gods, especially of Jupiter. Wearing winged shoes and even a winged hat, Mercury was also the patron god of travellers, boundaries, of commerce and thieves. In astrology, this planet influences intellect and communication, schooling and education, adaptability and variability.
Aquarius, the eleventh sign of the zodiac, is ruled by Uranus, planet of rebellion and surprises, promoting unconventional ideas, revolutions and inventions. So, between, February 7th and February 25th, transiting this sign of Uranus, Mercury encourages original thinking and remembers us that rules are made to be broken. Let’s see how, according to your zodiac sign:
Aries – you need many people around. You successfully find new ways to meet new people and make new friends, but you also take time to talk to people you already know. You are positive and encouraging, so that there are good chances to be accepted into new groups of friends or any other social group.
Taurus – when was the last time you changed your hairstyle? What about your fashion style? During Mercury’s transit through Aquarius, is a good idea to get a new look. On the other hand, your career requires more communication than usual. You also have more conversations about your professional goals.
Gemini – now it is a good time for foreign travel. Meeting people who are different to you will help you to broaden your horizons and to promote tolerance and diversity. And we already know that, for a Gemini, diversity is like water for a fish – his natural environment.
Cancer – you gain the ability to use other’s capital to make money. With Mercury in the house of money, you should try your luck in business. This is a good time to open up conversations about topics that usually are considered taboo, like intimacy, political or religious views.
Leo – it is the proper time to break bad relationship habits. Maybe you are too melodramatic, maybe you are not being totally honest with your partner, maybe you take him or her for granted or maybe you argue in public. Now, you decide to improve relational skills. You have a strong desire to cooperate and communicate with others.
Virgo – During this transit, your mind is focused on work and you develop your analytical and critical thinking. It will also be easier for you to change bad health habits, like not getting enough sleep, not drinking enough water or eating too many processed foods.
Libra – finding new pleasures is important for you, when Mercury transits your fifth house: recreational activities, romantic games to play with your partner (let’s not forget about Valentine’s Day!) or all kind of guilty pleasures. You also have a good sense of humour.
Scorpio – you find ways to spend more time with your family. You develop positive relationships with your parents, brothers, sisters and children. During this transit, you make your decisions based on what you’re feeling, rather what than what you’re thinking.
Sagittarius – you learn new things, you adapt easily to changes. You love traveling and visiting new places. You spend a lot of time at the phone, but also on social media sites. This is also a good time to start learning something new,
Capricorn – communication related activities bring you money, during this period of time. It is a good period to sell or buy things and properties. That’s because, during this transit, you are more practical and rational in your approach to finances.
Aquarius – having Mercury in your sun sign, you develop your communication skills and self-expression comes easily. Your originality is highly appreciated and you feel good about yourself. You also take a more mental approach to situations.
Pisces – you know how to get people to tell you their secrets. You find out intimate details about family members, friends, co-workers and about almost everyone you know. This is also a good time for meditation, prayer and anything connected with spirituality and religion.
