Mercury will work its way through the last half of Aries in the next ten days. That pace is not unusual. What’s truly remarkable is that the innermost planet first entered the domain of cardinal fire two full months ago. The recently concluded Mercury retrograde cycle, which took up most of March and April, accounts for the paradox. Now that the swiftest planet is accelerating through territory long deferred, it may account for your itch to do a little exploring.
The sky implies a desire to explore right now. Since Mercury corresponds to mind and its means, your itch has probably become an idea. Current astrology says your strategy should be to thoughtfully expand upon that idea rather than immediately scratch the itch and inflame it.
The potential for inflammation is the first thing you should be aware of as you make plans to explore. Mercury in late Aries will have its hands full with more than a handful of centaur planets this week and next. Encounters with centaur energy are always best approached consciously and carefully because they often coincide with latent or potential irritation. Therefore, if you go on a day hike, wear an extra pair of socks and apply arnica or moleskin before you need it. If you will be meeting new people, lay off the alcohol so you can be cool and real.
If your itch is more intellectual than physical or social, start slow and humble so as not to overwhelm yourself. A small measure of anticipation is better than a massive amount of regret. Besides preparing for the anticipated, another part of exploring is being open to the unexpected. That’s where Uranus, another current occupant of Aries, comes in.
