Now that Mercury is in Aries we are all going to be a little more impatient than usual. While Mercury being in Aries is a great means for us to become more encouraging and working a bit harder in life but only if we put the right energies to work.

According to CafeAstrology, when Mercury is in Aries we are much more willing to think things through and focus on learning in general. Aries people are overall very charming, but they take criticism a bit too serious. While Mercury is present in this sign, you may feel a bit more excited about life and more willing to adopt new means of getting things done. wrote as follows on the topic:

We’ll all get straight to the point when mental Mercury is in assertive Aries! Aries waits for no one, so this transit is a time when our minds may grow a little (or a lot) more restless and impatient. We won’t stand still or replay the tape in our minds over and over again — we’ll want to charge ahead and move onto the next thing.

Mercury in Aries is also great for opening the lines of communication and giving us the encouragement we need to say exactly what we think and feel. Since Aries is the sign of “me,” we’ll have the confidence to speak our minds. However, our desire to say exactly what we’re thinking could become a problem when cooperation, compromise, and sensitivity are required.

Our thoughts and speech may become more courageous and innovative when Mercury and Aries get together. Flashes of insight make it easier for us to think of fresh solutions to problems that have been hanging over our heads for too long. Don’t second-guess yourself — your first thoughts are often your best ones during this transit. Catch this inspiration as fast as you can, because the Aries influence means these bursts of brilliance will disappear just as quickly as they appeared.

Allow yourself to be more expressive during this time and see where things go. Don’t hold back but do your best to be honest and kind to yourself as a whole. While it might not sound like much right now as these energies come forth, you’re going to see that in a lot of ways. If you have this celestial movement in your natal chart, the things mentioned above may end up being much more intense. While these energies are overall positive, they should still be kept in check and you should do your best to remain grounded as you move forth.
