Speedy Mercury transits the Cardinal Fire Sign Aries ruled by Mars the Warrior Planet. On the 2nd of April Mercury started an unusually long transit in Aries, as on the 28th it will start it’s Retrograde Cycle still in this Cardinal Fire Sign. We can expect a lot of movement, a lot of changes and a lot of energy during this transit, as Mars, the ruler of Aries is in a very strong position in Scorpio its own Sign, giving its full support to planets both in Scorpio and Aries. Mercury is a bit too flighty and changeable to feel really comfortable in the focused and aggressive Mars enclosure, but these two different energies need not be necessarily bad together.
The Cardinal nature of Aries will allow Mercury, freshly emerging from its Debilitation in Pisces, to experience some much needed action, and at least until the retrograde motion sets in, we can enjoy a time of energetic financial flow, increased and direct communication and vigorous exchanges of ideas. Pay attention to the risk of becoming too aggressive, demanding and inflexible in interpersonal communication, and don’t allow Mercury’s energies to disregard the need for focus in business affairs.
This transit of Mercury in Aries can be a bad time if we are not conscious of the potential dangers, but with a bit of awareness, it can be extremely fruitful financially and also in private life. This short time until the 28th is beautifully supported for investment, and daring and high risk business decisions, as long as we keep the balance of Mars and Mercury energies. Advertising, marketing, and IT businesses will especially benefit from this transit. As Venus is in Exaltation in the Mutable Water Sign Pisces, people working in the fields of entertainment, fashion and beauty will also likely to see increased cash flow and business opportunities.
Because Aries is the 1st sign of the Zodiac, this is the best time for new starts. Opening new shops, starting new businesses will receive the initiative and competitive energies from Mercury supported by strong Mars. In legal and contractual matters Mercury in Aries could be successful, however there is a strong possibility of aggression and hotheadedness causing some problems. For anyone in business, wearing the Planetary Gems of Mercury, Emerald, Peridot, Tsavorite or Demantoid Garnet will enhance these wonderful energies bringing money and ease in communication
