Mercury in Aquarius

Put your smarty pants on, the planet of intellect is on the move

Mercury, the planet of the intellect, is making a smart move into cerebral Aquarius on February 12, 2014. But don't forget, Mercury is still retrograde until February 28, 2014, so this transit won't be as brilliant as it usually is. 

Intelligence matters more with Mercury in Aquarius, as we can break out of our usual patterns of perception to understand the world from different angles.

Cooler heads allow us to step out of the shadows of emotion and discover new concepts. However, while friendly conversations may stimulate minds, we could be less successful at touching hearts. 

Aquarius, deceptively named the "Water-bearer," is actually an air sign (like Gemini and Libra), which brings the gift of detachment and the grace of objectivity, as well as the ability to think up complex notions. The challenge, however, is communicating them because Mercury generally prefers simplicity.

So what may happen during this time is that you find your mind is tireless. Your mental gears will always be churning, and you may have some trouble turning off your brain.

You could see the world in a very unusual and interesting way with Mercury in Aquarius, coming up with new ideas and concepts no one has considered before. Expect to have some "ah-ha" moments for sure! But watch out for being too opinionated and stubborn, because once you make up your mind on something it will be very difficult to change it.

Finally, while you may find yourself to be a deep and serious thinker during Mercury in Aquarius, your thoughts may be rather disconnected from your emotions. This may lead you to conclusions that are shocking to those who are more compassionate and less cerebral, which could create some conversational difficulties.

Try to remember to be tolerant of opposing points of view during this insensitive time when you're naturally out of touch with your feelings.

Those born with Mercury in Aquarius include the athletically gifted Michael Jordan, Julius Erving, John McEnroe and Wayne Gretsky. Comic genius is found here in the works of Jim Carrey, John Belushi, Billy Crystal, Andy Kaufman, Chris Farley, Jackie Gleason and Bill Maher. Actors with Mercury in Aquarius include Drew Barrymore, Matt Dillon, Geena Davis, Cybill Shepherd, Jennifer Aniston and Christian Bale.

High-tech Mercury in Aquarius appears in the birth charts of astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Deke Slayton and Frank Borman. Musicians Garth Brooks, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Lou Reed, Karen Carpenter, Bob Marley, Neil Diamond, Artur Rubenstein, George Harrison, Jascha Heifetz, Graham Nash, Janis Joplin, Carole King and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart reflect the brilliance of this combination.

Writers Anais Nin, Norman Mailer, Clare Boothe Luce, Jack London, Jean Auel, Gertrude Stein and Jules Verne were born with Mercury in Aquarius. Reform-minded politicians Adlai Stevenson and Thomas Paine, as well as disparate geniuses Benjamin Franklin, Luther Burbank, Bobby Fischer, Barbara Jordan, Michelangelo, Oprah Winfrey and Stanley Owsley are all members of this super-intelligent group.
