Picture a 6 year old darting around a candy store. There's so much to take in that he can't slow down long enough to grab anything with his chubby little fingers. Then he comes across a massive chocolate cake. It's sitting on a low platform so he can reach it, no problem. With a shriek, he dives in head first.
Mercury is in Aries right now and he is definitely zipping around that candy store. Unbridled enthusiasm is the Aries signature. It's me first and why not? Mercury in Aries cannot conceive why anyone wouldn't support his ideas. So much energy needs a focus and this is difficult to come by when you blend Fire and Quicksilver. But then he meets Jupiter (chocolate cake) on March 16th. Now that's a culmination of optimism and inspiration. With Jupiter, bigger is better and the sky's the limit.
Between now and March 16th (when Mercury conjuncts Jupiter), it's an excellent time to start something that makes a splash. High energy, impressive projects are favoured as are situations where you need to put aside your worries and just act. If you can pick one or two things and not be distracted by all the other goodies, you'll be delighted by the results.
