Wondering why the sudden spaced-out, lucid, detached genius flow? It’s Mercury in Aquarius, the best mercurial vibe in weeks.
If you’re grabbing onto ideas that zap around like lightning bolts, wondering if they’re safe or not, you’re attuned to it.
Same if you’re in happy awe at the sped-up synchronicity and symbolism, hyped and inspired but clumsier than usual.
Mercury has been square Uranus in Taurus, with Uranus the ruler of Aquarius and aligned to Mercury. That makes practical limitations – especially home, grounding, property – more confounding, just as the mystical and inventive are more accessible.
Still, Mercury mediates consciousness, rules communication, and opens doors. Take your most pressing material or muggle concern and hit it with some electric sorcery.
Most of us have stallked the Shadow Roads since Halloween; we’re wiser but it’s hard to snap into reinvention mode. Do it anyway. Inconvenient Truth: Magic and your instincts have probably done more for you than popular opinion or “sensible” mainstream suggestions.
Apply them to the very things you think are impervious to it because they’re so leaden and dull. You can’t only be creative, inventive, or magic when the conditions are utterly brilliant.
This Mercury Aquarius energy will double back in March. It’s on the Calendar with the exact times but broadly: Mercury went into Aquarius on Thurs Evening/Friday morning and it moves into Pisces on Feb 3. Then, as Mercury goes Retro in Feb, it backs into Aquarius from March 4 to March 16.
More in your Horoscopes as this plays out, but yes, you can game the system via your spook powers.
“The winds that awakened the stars,” is from Maid Quiet, by William Butler Yeats, my favourite poet.
