Mercury in Aquarius
Updated: Apr 3, 2021
Nothing excites Mercury in Aquarius more than a stimulating conversation about a visionary project, be it scientific, technological, or spiritual in nature. And if there are multiple individuals involved in the conversation with innovative ideas bouncing off the walls – even better!
Aquarius is the point in the Zodiac Wheel where the collective is formed. Mercury is the mind – communication, thoughts, concepts, memories, and the expression of ideas. The minds of Mercury in Aquarius natives are one step into the future, which can make conversing with ordinary Earthlings somewhat challenging. These individuals are not interested in the mundane, but visions of the future are absolutely sublime!
In the language of Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Mercury is allied with the original visionary: Thoth, creator of language, writing, and time. Aquarius is aligned with Ptah, creator of Heaven and Earth. Ptah creates the world through the words that he speaks; his tongue is connected to his heart. Everything we envision, think, or speak needs to be created with love.
Aquarius is known for emotional detachment. This is useful when traversing the visionary realms but can be hurtful when directed at ordinary humans. During this journey of Thoth through the emanation of Ptah, Mercury will turn retrograde in Aquarius, spending over two months in this air sign. New and creative ideas will flow fast and free. It will be important to remember that words can cut as deeply as a knife. Pass everything you think and say through your heart so all your creations come from a place of love.
Mercury/Thoth will remain in the emanation of Aquarius/Ptah from January 8 until March 15. Mercury will be retrograde from January 30 until February 20.
