Snap Judgments

While Mercury is in Aries, and depending on how it influences you personally, your mind could be functioning at top speed and in short bursts of activity. You might not have a lot of patience to focus on one idea for too long, instead burning through one thought quickly and moving on to the next. Instead of weighing all the pros and cons of a situation, you may tend to make snap judgments based more on instinct than logic.

New Ideas

You may find yourself on fire with one brilliant idea after another. This is a time for generating creative new ideas, though you might not necessarily see how to follow through on them. Your busy brain could even keep you up at night with its high-speed activity. Keep a notebook on the night stand to jot down your late-night inspirations.


Honesty and directness come easily in communication — possibly too easily. Words erupt from your mouth quickly and abruptly, sometimes surprising even yourself with what comes out. You might need to make an effort to be tactful and diplomatic to avoid hurting others’ feelings.

Arguing for Fun

Word games can be fun — especially if they don’t last too long. You might also enjoy debating ideas and even arguing, just for the sake of it. Writing an opinionated letter to the editor on a topic you feel passionate or outraged about could be extremely satisfying.
