Mercury in Aries brings forth an active observation and intellect as well as a bit of impatience. The planet of communication in Aries can exhibit a youthful enthusiasm, and can be a bit self-focused, if not childish. You may enjoy intellectual stimulation, and learning new things. Reactions are lightning-fast, and the thought processes are instinctual and more rapid than any other sign. Communication skills are normally not well thought out; there is a tendency toward sudden ideas, anything new and different grabs the attention. Innovative and impulsive, the mind is swift and easily bored; often the details are left to others. When this planet is retrograde, there is a reversal of normal tendencies, or a need to be more considerate and cooperative in discussions.
