Jupiter represents where we are receiving blessings or good fortune; With Mercury, Jupiter, and Saturn all moving through the sign of Aquarius, being open to different insights and the willingness to listen to perspectives that are different from our own experiences is highly encouraged at this time.
It is important to note that there will be some opposition to the Mercury in Aquarius energy due to the tense aspects from Mars and Uranus in Taurus. Traditionally, Taurus is a pretty laid-back sign that is more interested in grounding itself into its own personal values in order to create strong foundations. However at this time, with so much energy in Aquarius, we are being propelled to reconsider our perspectives and consider something other than the norm in order to experience solid success. Taurus will not go down without a fight…especially when it feels that its personal values are being threatened. Aquarius will be seen as the outside force wanting to change Taurus against its will.
So, for as much as there are positive exchanges of new information and consciousness-expanding ideas at this time with the Mercury in Aquarius transit, we can also expect to experience push-back from outside entities that are not willing to make any adjustments out of the fear of losing personal security. Knowing that they will be push-back allows us to tap into Mercury in Aquarius’ aloofness so that we can embrace the full potential of the Aquarian energy at its fullest.
