While Mercury is in Aquarius, and depending on how this transit affects your natal chart, your brain could be buzzing with inventive ideas. You may find yourself thinking outside the box, with sudden flashes of inspiration that open your mind to unusual and unexpected possibilities. You might even have trouble sleeping at night as the mental gears tirelessly turn.
Objectivity and rationality can help you get a higher perspective on everyday situations, and you could find an innovative solution to an old problem. You tend to make decisions based purely on logic now, detached from your emotions. While you’re more open to creative thinking under this transit, you might also have a tendency to get overly attached to your own opinions. Once you latch onto a certain idea, you could be very stubborn and are unlikely to change your mind.
You might be drawn to computers, electronics and science, as you tend to take a methodical approach to learning and thinking now. Social media and internet marketing could also appeal to you now, and this is an auspicious time to expand your circle of friends and extend your influence in the world.
Idealism is high and your mind could turn toward humanitarian and progressive goals. Group brainstorming sessions on how to make a positive difference in the world could be very productive now.

If you have Mercury in Aquarius as a natal influence:
Your mind is tireless. The gears in there are always turning, and you may have some difficulty turning off your brain at night in order to get some sleep. You see the world in a very unusual and interesting way, turning ideas and concepts around in order to see facets and angles that no one else has considered before. Learning in a methodical and organized method works fine for you but don’t overlook those ‘ah-ha!’ moments, because flashes of inspiration can deliver some profound ideas and concepts.
Mentally, you’re opinionated and rather stubborn, though quite innovative; once you make up your mind on something it is very difficult to change your mind. You’re a deep and serious thinker but your thoughts may be disconnected from your emotions, so you can arrive at conclusions that are quite shocking to those who are more compassionate and less cerebral than you.
Subjects such as computer science, technology, and the physical sciences may appeal to you, but you can also be drawn to more progressive subjects, particularly fields in which great progress can be made in the coming years. You prefer to be on the cutting edge instead of bringing up the rear.
