People with this skeptical and quite objective Mercury come to their ideas and opinions independently. They may listen to the views of others but won’t swallow these wholesale. In the world at large, they tend to question political spin and advertising jargon. Mercury in Aquarius individuals are interested in the truth as the see it and when being told something, often the first question they ask themselves is: “Is this true?” Many Mercury Aquarius are interested in human nature and in the natural world. Knowledgeable, with wide interests, this combination can also give rise to infuriatingly opinionated know-it-all. It can describe people with strong convictions who are not frightened of contradicting others, whether or not it is appropriate to do so. The typical Mercury in Aquarius person is not scared to call a brick a brick. Equally, you know that if they tell you “You look wonderful” they mean it. Sincerity is a watch word here. There can be open mindedness but once the mind is made up, it will not be easily changed.
Friendships and communicating with friends is very important for them and they will be there for the long run! They can have friends from any walks of life, there is no social snobbery in them when it comes to friends because they find the value in the individual.
