Mercury in Aquarius Personality

The mind of a Mercury in Aquarius dwells in some indistinct era in the next millennium. These natives are true innovators for whom the present is the past and the future their playground. They live in pursuit of some idealized version of existence where humanity is better.

Positive Traits

Those with their Mercury in Aquarius have grand ideas with the laser focus to see them out. Opinionated and off-the-wall, these folks will not be silenced, regardless of how their thoughts are perceived. They aspire to profundity, not agreeability, though they often achieve the latter in spite of themselves.
