On March 19, 12:24 AM ET, Mercury will leave Pisces and enter Aries, where it will remain until April 3. This shift will quicken the pace of our thinking, increase our desire to take action on our ideas, and motivate us to be assertive, speak our minds, and make bold decisions.
Mercury’s ingress into Aries marks the beginning of a strong energetic shift that will propel us into Aries season and the New Astrological year. In the next two days, we will experience both the Sun’s ingress into Aries and a New Moon at 0º of the sign of the Warrior, just within a few hours of each other. These events are introducing an energy of renewal and renovation, inviting us to move forward and be courageous in our decision-making.
While this transit will impact everyone, Mercury’s ingress into Aries will be particularly relevant for those born with natal placements in Cardinal signs Aries, Cancer, Libra, Capricorn. These individuals are likely to experience significant changes in their perception of reality and thinking patterns, feel more inclined to take action towards their goals, and feel drawn to express themselves in a more assertive and direct manner.
Mercury enters Aries: Courageous Thinking and Bold Decision-Making
Mercury, the planet named after the mythological Messenger, describes our communication style and logical thinking patterns. In Astrology, it rules over our learning style, problem-solving skills, and what we find intellectually stimulating.
The first sign of the Zodiac, Aries is all about new beginnings, fresh starts, and renewal. This sign represents our drive to initiate things and go after what we want, as well as the process of opening new paths and taking new directions. It embodies a warrior spirit and a forward-moving energy that is essentially instinctual, masculine, and bold.
With Mercury in Aries, we can expect a bolder and more decisive approach to problem-solving, as well as a greater willingness and desire to take initiative. This transit supports our decision-making processes and encourages us to speak our minds more passionately and directly. However, it’s important to be aware that confrontations and discussions can happen more frequently and be more heated during this time.
While Mercury is in Aries, we gravitate towards saying it like it is, we speak first and think later. We may find ourselves expressing uncomfortable opinions with more ease than usual, and worrying less about what others may think or say about us.
Mercury in Aspect to Pluto, Jupiter, and Chiron
Currently, Mercury is in a sextile aspect to Pluto at 29º Capricorn. When Mercury and Pluto are in a sextile aspect, we experience a powerful and intense mental focus, and our perceptions and communications tend to be more direct, penetrating, and precise. This alignment indicates increased chances to experience a deeper understanding of complex issues, uncover secrets and hidden truths, and gain new insights into our and others’ psychology.
During its transit through Aries, between March 26 and March 28, Mercury is going to join Jupiter and Chiron in Aries. This triple conjunction indicates opportunities to learn, gain new understanding of ourselves and life, and get new insights about our healing process. Jupiter’s influence will inspire us to explore areas of knowledge we are passionate about, think positively, be optimistic, and see the higher lesson behind any experience.
The activation of Chiron could bring possibilities to face old wounds connected to communication, assertiveness, and getting our point across. In particular, we may have opportunities to work on triggers linked to feelings of rejection, not being able to express ourselves clearly, and being often misunderstood and misinterpreted by others. The Jupiter, Mercury, Chiron conjunction increases the potential for healing conversations and transformative exchanges that can significantly alter our perception of reality and the way we approach communication.
Mercury enters Aries: Speaking our Truth
Mercury in Aries inspires us to be brave and courageous in our thoughts, words, and actions. This combination of energies encourages us to pursue what we desire with courage and determination, without overthinking or second-guessing ourselves. It’s an opportunity to embrace an experimental mindset, take risks, and try new things.
It’s important to be mindful of our communication style during this transit. The strong Aries energy may inspire us to be more assertive and direct, and it can also indicate a degree of insensitivity and a lack of consideration for others. During the upcoming days and weeks, the invitation is to balance our focus on our own needs and desires with empathy and respect for those around us.
Overall, Mercury in Aries is a time to work on healthy assertiveness and commit to speaking authentically. It’s an opportunity to set boundaries and standards that allow us to support ourselves and our desires. This transit has the potential to be an empowering and inspiring experience that can motivate us to practice speaking our truth without hesitation.
