Mercury's transit through Aries (starting March 30th) will be a distinct change of pace from Mercury in Pisces' quiet realizations.
Mercury in Aries is blunt. The pace of information will accelerate; raw and uncut facts, thrown directly at you. This could be too much for some folks, because Mercury in Aries tells it like it is. Mercury in Pisces hinted, but Mercury in Aries hammers the point home.
The downside to these "truths" is they are not always rational. Aries is extremely subjective, so information will be coming from a place of wilful assertion, passion or anger. People may push the facts at you, rather than presenting the facts. If someone needs to speak up or launch a passionate defence, this can work out well. But it will be easy to lose sight of the objective picture.
Fortunately, Mercury starts out with a grounding trine to Saturn Rx (at 4 degrees Sagittarius) from March 30th to April 2nd. Saturn's retrograde revisions/questions will force Mercury to slow down and think, even as the information comes busting out. So it's a safe bet that for these few days, what you hear/say will be rational and focused.
The Sun will be crossing the South Node (at 10 degrees Aries) on March 30th, as well. A Sun/South Node conjunction is brief, but it may nudge some of you to wrap up an Aries issue in your chart (the transiting South Node is about issues that need to be completed). If you've been waffling, or waiting for a sign, Mercury's Aries ingress may be just what you need to decide the matter. Watch for unavoidable information that "shouts" at you. You'll only feel the South Node conjunction if you have anything from 9 to 11 degrees of the Cardinal signs.
Here are the aspects Mercury in Aries will be making:
- April 2nd: trine Saturn Rx at 4 degrees Sag
- April 5th: conjunct South Node at 10 degrees Aries
- April 6th: trine Jupiter Rx at 12 degrees Leo
- April 7th: square Pluto at 15 degrees Capricorn
- April 8th: conjunct Uranus at 16 degrees Aries
- April 9th: conjunct the Sun at 19 degrees Aries
- April 14th: enters Taurus
