Mercury in Aquarius gives you a mind that is very advanced, to the degree of true brilliance. It’s sort of lofty to call this a “genius” position, but it gives you the potential to be intellectually gifted, to some degree. You’ve got some accelerated, electrified brainwaves going on in there, which can manifest in ways that are very offbeat or just plain odd. The truth is that you just see the world much differently than most of us, which results in lots of sudden intellectual insights and ideas. Aquarius Mercury has the mental perspective of being on the outside looking in. There’s a desire here to advance the world around you with your insights, yet you can also be surprisingly stubborn for such an open-minded person. You’ll go as far as to rebel when your unique mind isn’t valued or tolerated.
You often communicate with people in ways that are eccentric or quirky. It might just be because you have your own idiosyncratic ways of speaking and verbalizing things. But, if you take it to extremes, people might see you as some sort of weird crank. Not that you’ll care all that much, though. In fact, as interested in other people as Aquarius Mercury is, there’s a curious detachment in the manner in which you communicate. Often times, it seems like you could be talking to anyone, maybe even yourself. You can be like that eccentric scientist or artist, wrapped up in his own brilliance, talking to himself. Yet, you are still deeply fascinated in other people, as well as the world around you. Anything that keeps you engaged with the world’s currents. With Mercury in Aquarius, it goes without saying that your sense of humor can be, well, different. But, being so left-center is often what makes you so funny.
