The Sun in Aquarius is joined by the communication planet, Mercury today. The exact position is 10 degrees, so pay attention if you have any important planets around this angle. And the same can be said for those with an affinity with the other air signs, Libra and Gemini.
This aspect means today’s astrological influence will be especially exacerbated.
Generally when the Sun makes an exact conjunction with Mercury, it increases the strength of the planet – which means we might be extremely active intellectually and expect to have some great ideas.
At the same time we might be overthinking things today, because of Mercury’s activity.
Astrologer Marina from MarStars believes ideas might be constantly bubbling up in your mind or you may be overanalysing certain issues today.
Marina said: “Today will present astrological challenges but overall the aspect is great for intellectual activities, communicating with others and having new, exciting and original ideas.
“Bear in mind today the considerable strength of Mercury in Aquarius as this is the sign of exultation for Mercury, which is now of the best possible positions.
“The typical characteristic of Mercury in Aquarius relates to new, revolutionary ideas.
“You will most likely avoid routine, stereotypical and tired thoughts and projects.
“Instead, attempt to focus on something more original, try to experiment and materialise your ideas.”
Mercury will make another aspect today, a semi-square with the planet Venus.
This is a minor, challenging aspect which has the potential to bring a dynamic between the head and the heart.
We may today be overly emotional when it comes to maters requiring a more analytical and logical approach.
And the opposite case is just as likely to happen; matters concerning our feelings may be rationalised too much.
Astrologer Marina said: “We may try to find explanations in matters of the heart and it is simply impossible to explain these affairs.
“Keep in mind people may be taking things too personally when you are communicating with them.
“People may react a little more emotionally than usual or take offence easily today.
“So this is a minor challenging aspect between positive planets, meaning we should not expect any aggression or miscommunication today.”
The other great news today is the transit Moon in the star sign of Sagittarius.
Sagittarius is one of the most positive and optimistic signs.
Sagittarius is a fire sign, so today is a time for action, expanding your mind and being receptive to new ideas.
So generally there should be a lot of lightness today and we might more positive and optimistic than usual.
