    Mercury will station direct at 11°01’ Aquarius (antiscion 18°59’ Scorpio), Moon in Gemini will be in a trine aspect to Mercury for most of the day, what kind of news might we expect? Could be only pure gossip with Gemini involved but sometimes gossip is half-truth anyway and the need to talk may be overwhelming!

    These last twenty days have certainly provided an opportunity to rethink future plans and now is the time to put those plans in action.

    In Aquarius, a sign co-ruled by Saturn (traditional) and Uranus (modern), Mercury is even more thirsty for knowledge, always in search of new ideas and technologies but ready to reject or even abandon them as soon as new (Uranus) becomes normal (Saturn).

    Mercury in Aquarius will give us new visions, make us aware of new possibilities, allow us to envision an ideal world or society, which might be great as a theory, but much less so as a practicality.

    Aquarius is a fixed Air sign so here Mercury is at home in the mind and intellect but less so on a basic gut feeling level and could get very stubborn once a decision has been made.

    The Sabian symbol for 12° Aquarius: “On a vast staircase stand people of different types, graduated upwards.” Indicating the necessity of recognising differences of types and levels of development wherever human beings work and live together.

    For the antiscion at 19° Scorpio: “A parrot repeats a conversation he has overheard.” Indicating the capacity to transmit transcendental knowledge.

    “A fool is made more of a fool, when their mouth is more open than their mind.” Anthony Liccione
