A thing to remember here is that these posts are strictly meant for the particular planet position. Like, today we are looking at Mercury in Aquarius, so the description given here may change for you if your Mercury is although in the sign of Aquarius but with conjunction with or aspected by other planets.
So, lets see what Mercury can do in Aquarius without any conjunction or aspect from any other planet. 1st lets see what these 2 things represent --
Mercury represents communication skills, marketing, calculative ability, younger siblings, hobbies, skills with hands, intelligence, quick decision making, logical thinking, youthfulness etc.
Aquarius is 11th sign of zodiac belt, hence it signifies the things and energy related with 11th house of horoscope, such as Gains, Desires, Hopes and Wishes, Large Organisations, Network Circles etc. Besides this, Aquarius also represents Scientific Thinking & Research, Uplifting the Society, Higher Goals & Rewards for all. Aquarius is made of another set of 2 and half Nakshatra, i.e. Dhanishtha, Satabhisha and Purva-Bhadrapada. Aquarius Lord is Saturn & Rahu.
So, now the planet of intellect is coming into sign of Scientific Research, Higher Goals etc. These people can be interested in serving society, serving humanity and new-age technology related things. They can be very much interested in scientific and technical studies. They will try to gain more and more information in this field and serve people through its communication. But as Aquarius is ruled by Saturn & Rahu, such interests either may come up with delay in life or they may get its results with delay and perseverance. So, these people are always interested in serving humanity through their communication in scientific or technological field.
But the extent of this impact will always be as per the Nakshatra Mercury is in. In Dhanishtha Nakshatra, it will be impacted by Mars as nakshatra lord. In Satabhisha Nakshatra, Rahu will impact Mercury's functioning. In Purva-Bhadrapada, Jupiter will have its say in Mercury's role in Aquarius.
Also, as the lord of Aquarius, Saturn's & Rahu position will have highest impact on Mercury.
Tomorrow, the last one. Mercury in Pisces/Debilitated Mercury.
