Mercury is entering Aries this week—here's what this means for your zodiac sign

Julia Look Up The Stars

When Mercury enters Aries on April 11th, your response and reasoning will abruptly change. For the past few months (throughout Mercury retrograde), you’ve been more focused on your intuition and sentimentality when making decisions and communicating with others. Now, you will be more spontaneous and impulsive with your decision making, which will make you more responsive and quick to temper. Mercury in Aries has a history of putting its foot in its mouth—so try to think before you speak and listen before expressing your passions.  

ARIES 

You’re approaching every situation with logic and practicality, which is a far cry away from your passionate vibe. Instead of impulsively responding to others, take a moment to find the right words. Understanding facts before you react is crucial and will save you a lot of energy arguing over situations.  

TAURUS

Speaking up is hard to do, especially when you’re having trouble matching the correct words to describe your inner sentiments. You don’t have to explain to others how you feel 24/7. Sometimes it’s best to keep emotions hidden while navigating through them in order to gain a grasp on them.  

GEMINI 

Your B.S. detector is on high alert, which is allowing you to suss out members of your crew who aren’t as honest as they claim to be. It’s totally fine to take a break from people who aren’t living up to your expectations, especially when they aren’t treating you kindly and with respect.  

CANCER

You’re now taking on two roles in the professional realm of your life, making you busy with work projects. The caveat is that these tasks may be of little interest to you, which may cause you to question the direction of your life. Use this time to reassess your career.  

LEO 

Your hunger for knowledge is real right now, pushing you to unmask injustices and political affairs. Make sure you fully research a topic before asserting your insights. Fact-checking is crucial to make your points come across with clarity. Don’t rely on the news for information, do your own research.  

VIRGO 

Don’t shy away from talking openly about taboo subjects. You are a natural investigator and you’re finding resolve in discussing clandestine activities and matters that push people’s buttons, especially those that go against the norm of society. People will confide in you, trusting that you won’t share their secrets.  

LIBRA 

Committing to one person may be hard at the moment, especially when you’re still flirting with another admirer behind the scenes. Be real with yourself about the outcome of this situation. No one can win as long as you’re not being 100% honest with yourself and others.

SCORPIO 

You’re on fire these days, completing every task that comes your way. The only issue is that you’re under a severe amount of pressure (most of it is brought on from yourself), which is causing you major stress. Try to take a few deep breaths and slow down.  

SAGITTARIUS 

Ever hear the expression “curiosity killed the cat?” Well, that can very well be you if you don’t stop being a busybody. Stay in your lane the next few weeks and don’t swerve into other people’s issues—even if they try to drag you into their problems.   

CAPRICORN

Your memory is now like an elephant’s: able to retain a ton of information. This will serve your instinctual nature with the insurance that you won’t allow yourself to make the same mistakes over and over again. After all, you are a once bitten, twice shy kind of sea-goat.  

AQUARIUS 

The mind is a terrible thing to waste and you’re using yours to the maximum over the next few weeks. Picking up new activities will help distract you from current global events and ease your mind by calming your thoughts. Be open to discovering hobbies and projects during this time.  

PISCES

Your mind is more focused on the material world, allowing you to find comfort in sensual activities, instead of abstract stimuli. Embrace life and find time for pleasure within your day to keep your mind agile and fluid, not restrained. This will help you to avoid emotional meltdowns and frustrations.
