Mercury in Aries

Mercury in Aries communicators make quick decisions–so quick that you might think they don’t much like thinking things over. The truth is, Aries communicators don’t have a lot of patience for mulling. Their decisions are often driven by the need for instant gratification. Mercury in Aries men and women are generally quick and to the point in their communications. They are direct and candid, and some may even think their style is crude at times. At times, they can come across as downright aggressive, but that usually happens when they encounter opposition to their opinions and ideas. It is generally a result of frustration, because Mercury in Aries almost childishly assumes that others will accept their opinions smoothly. There is a sensitivity and defensiveness to Aries, and when Mercury is placed in the sign, natives tend to be quite personally attached to their ideas. These people have a tendency towards streamlined learning. They prefer not to get bogged down in details, and are adept at dismissing what they feel are irrelevant details. There’s a certain innocent charm to Aries communicators. Many will appreciate this sign’s utilitarian approach. You can pretty much count on them being straight with you, even if their Sun Sign is the more indirect Pisces. This Mercury position favours starting new things. Aries is not attached to outdated ideas, and generally adopts an enthusiastic style. Criticism or negative feedback can be taken personally. Still, they are not afraid of a fight or a challenge, on a mental level. They have a visionary intelligence that is sometimes on the idealistic side.New projects and ideas are taken on with an unmatched enthusiasm with this position of Mercury. However, because there is no shortage of new ideas in life, Mercury in Aries natives can be quick to dump one mental pursuit, way of thinking, or opinion for something fresher and more exciting. Mercury in Aries people are often excellent at promoting their new ideas. When they’re excited about something, their style of communication can be so motivating and fun, the enthusiasm is downright infectious. Aries is a leader, quick to adopt absolutely new and innovative methods–they get a rise out of leading too.

Born with Mercury in Aries you are not one to mince your words! A strong and direct communication style is a tell-tale sign for those of you born with your Mercury in Aries. Your mouth fires as rapidly as your mind -- you simply don’t have the time or energy to beat around the bush. This can rub some people the wrong way, but others will appreciate that you’ll always be straightforward with them. If anyone needs a decision to be made, you’re the person they call, Aries. While other people may get caught up in an endless cycle of mulling over every possibility, you focus on the bigger picture. To you, getting hung up on trivial details only slows you down on the trail you’re blazing. Because your Mercury is in Aries, you’re a pioneer, someone who is often coming up with new ideas and innovative ways of thinking about things. If your perspective is met with resistance, you have an animated communication style that often encourages people to adopt your point of view. Procrastination? You don’t know the meaning of that word! You embody a "full steam ahead" mentality, quickly ploughing through anything you’re working on. A take-charge attitude and ability to inspire others with your words is why you may eventually land a leadership role of some kind.

Mercury in Aries

People with Mercury in Aries tend to be fast-thinking, quick-witted and very mentally agile. However, they lack the capacity for considered, thorough, in-depth intellectual analysis and possess a much shorter than average concentration span. Their thought processes are spontaneous and highly subjective, giving them a talent for original, inspired, and sometimes ingenious thinking. But because they’re so single-minded and only see things from their own standpoint, they have difficulty appreciating alternative perspectives. This is an intellectually competitive mind that requires constant stimulation and enjoys vigorously challenging – and arguing against – others’ ideas and opinions. Mercury in Aries individuals quickly become impatient with dull-witted types who are unable to keep up with their own speed of thought. They are known for their ability to make quick, firm decisions, but because they rarely take the time to think things through properly, many of their judgments can be rash and ill advised. The Mercury in Aries communicative style is forthright, direct and assertive. These types can be relied upon for their verbal honesty and willingness to ‘tell it like it is’, no matter who they might upset or offend. Fearless advocates of truth, they simply aren’t interested in telling others only what they want to hear. Mercury in Aries people excel at quick-fire, spontaneous responses and clever come-backs and always want to be first in coming up with a new idea or expressing a controversial opinion. They’re very good at striking up conversations, but due to their tendency to flit from one topic to another are poor at sustaining a line of thought. They talk in a heated, impassioned and excitable manner that inspires enthusiasm – but sometimes also irritation – in listeners. Fierce opponents in arguments and debates, they can be very verbally aggressive, and perhaps quite crude, at times. They also have a troublesome tendency to blurt out the very first thing that comes into their heads without reflecting on the likely consequences.
