Mercury Is Entering Aquarius—Here’s What This Means for Your Zodiac Sign

Mercury retrograde is just around the corner.

Mercury will be in Aquarius from January 8th to March 15th. Normally this is a placement and a sign that the planet of communication loves to be in, because it allows for a neutral standpoint in analyzing matters and making decisions—until this year. Mercury will turn retrograde from January 30th to February 20th/21st in Aquarius. Therefore, you have a long journey ahead.

Along the way, Mercury will aspect the sun and nearly every planet (Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and the lunar Nodes of Destiny). There will be declarations of love, arguments, shakeups, communication breakdowns, and fated connections along the way. Fasten your seatbelts, folks; it’s gonna be a bumpy ride!

Below is your Mercury in Aquarius horoscope. Make sure to read your rising sign, too.


You’re in the mood to connect with your pals. However, you may discover that they have changed since you last spoke and the vibe is off. Before you get angry or huff and puff about the matter—which you normally do—give the relationships some time to readjust.


You are known to put the glamour on when it comes to how the public perceives you. This month, you are taking a more bare-bones and direct approach to what you post on social media. Your honesty and candidness will help you gain a loyal following and more respect.


Although it’s hard for you sometimes, you have to start looking at the bigger scope of matters. Don’t get too caught up in the minutiae of things and relationships. Keep an open mind to gain perspective. This will help you avoid making snap judgments and being extra gossipy with others.


If there ever was a time for you to put on your detective hat, now would be it. Use your intuition to help you find and uncover truths that have been hidden for some time. By doing this, you can totally gain a deeper and better understanding of matters and relationships.


A friendly debate with those in your social circle will leave you thirsting for more excitement. Before you go full throttle into creating more drama for fun, think about what you are trying to prove to others—even to yourself. Listen to what others are saying now before reacting right away.


It’s time for you to embrace your quirky sentiments. If you don’t, then you will become anxious over the mundane details of life. Stop trying to hide the fact that you like rigidity and organization. Be open about these needs. You don’t have to hide the truth about yourself now.


Your words can be a form of art if you use them to creatively express your innermost sentiments. Use poetry or art to let people know how you feel. This will be a form of healing or therapy for you and an amazing experience for others to take part in.


There’s a lot of drama, for lack of a better word, brewing in your family life. Before you argue your points with them, take a moment away from the situation to understand if it’s worth the effort and frustration. Dipping out of the arguments is the best thing to do.


Your communication is more concise and cutting than usual, which will create hurt feelings with others. Words of advice: Think carefully before you respond to emails and texts. You can be direct but expressive in a nice way. You don’t have to make a splash to get your points known.


Your confidence is radiating high at the moment, pushing you to defend yourself when people criticize you. To be real, you aren’t wrong to assert your voice as a way of standing up for yourself against the haters. In fact, you’re 100% right. Anyone who tells you otherwise is wrong.


Right now, your discerning eye is allowing you to see matters from a million miles away. Letting yourself figure out situations from a distance will help you find clarity. Use this time to sort out how you feel about situations and want to take action regarding such matters.


Verbal communication won’t be your strong suit over the next few weeks, as you’re leaning into your intuition. The caveat is that people can’t read your mind, so you’ll have to find a way to let your sentiments be known without expecting others to know instinctively what you’re thinking.
