What does Mercury in Aries mean? It means that the intelligent, witty, communicative, talented, strategic, analytical planet of merchants Mercury combines with the fiery, adventurous, independent, valorous, enterprising, motivated, dynamic, cardinal fire sign Aries.
Mercury is neutral towards Mars, the ruler of Aries. Hence, it is considered an average combination. That means that Mercury is not significantly strengthened or weakened.
It also means that the final outcomes of this combination are highly dependent on the positioning and strength of Mars in the birth chart. The better the placement of Mars, the better the results of Mercury in this sign.
Depending on the condition of Mars in the natal birth chart, this combination can be very gainful as Mercury in this sign is in 11th from its own sign Gemini. Hereby the 11th signifies fulfillment of wishes, desires, and aspirations.
On the other hand, this combination brings a lot of depth and darkness to this placement of Mercury as it is in 8th from its other sign Virgo. The 8th is a malefic house of darkness denoting sudden tragedies, events, and disruptions. On the positive side, it signifies sudden gains and events that transform the native into a better version of oneself.
Accordingly, all will depend on Mars, the dispositor of Aries Mercury, whether this combination extracts positive results from the above-mentioned significances or not.

Fiery & Valorous Communicator
Mercury is the planet of communication while Aries is the fiery and straightforward sign.
Hence, this combination influences the style of communication of individuals with this combination. Accordingly, they have a very straightforward speech and a fiery way of responding to others, especially when provoked. The tenderness of speech is not their cup of tea.
Fact that both Mercury and Mars are planets of swiftness and agility, indicates that these natives speak very quickly and have the special skill of generating strong arguments rapidly and efficiently.
Mercury signifies intellect, debates, and communication. Hence, Mercury in Aries reflects a person who channels their intelligence and communication in a fiery way. Hence, they are always fond of involving in verbal battles with others.
Whether this trait is strengthened and brings benefits to the native is determined by the guide of Mercury in Aries, which is Mars.
Accordingly, if Mars is dignified or forms a very strong combination of mutual exchange with Mercury by being in Gemini, these natives are blessed with a very powerful speech.
A strong Mars endows them with dynamism as well as courage to speak up whenever necessary. Their unshakable courage enhances their style of communication by making it extremely influential.
Most importantly, no one has the capacity to make them quiet. In fact, any opposition makes them stand even stronger and fight for truth using the intellect of Mercury.
On the contrary, if an undignified Mars ill-guides Mercury it indicates using the fiery and straightforward speech ineffectively and unethically.
To be specific, natives with this combination are vicious and inclined towards initiating disputes and battles.
As their arguments are backed by their motivation to win the debate, with undignified Mars they may sometimes modify the truth for their benefit. In other words, they have a tendency to become negatively secretive and hypocritical.
Speaking of communication, the 11th disposition increases the desire to connect and socialize with various people in communities.
Mercury also being a communicative planet adds energies to the socially outgoing character.
A strong and dignified Mars adds courage, drive, and valor to this combination. With these energies, they are able to function in large groups extremely effectively mainly due to their exceptionally sociable nature.
With their words and messages, they are able to guide and connect people effectively together to strive towards a common vision, goal, or aspiration.
Strong Intuition & Strategic Thinking
The 8th disposition formed by Mercury from its own sign Virgo endows them with greatly increased intuition along with complex strategic thinking.
That is because the 8th house signifies everything that is underneath the surface and hidden. In fact, most of the wisdom and information is deep and forms the largest part of the iceberg while the tip is the smallest portion of it.
Accordingly, this disposition combined with Mercury as the planet of intelligence gives the ability to discover all the deep aspects of life and any topic. This ability to dive deep and research blesses them to possess a massive about of knowledge of various topics, especially those related to righteousness and dignity (Aries).
As a result of this combination, these natives have the ability to dive deep into various matters to learn more and by doing that enhance their intellect and strategic thinking.
When a dignified and strong Mars support, their intellect becomes further amplified and supported by courage.
They become critically strategic and super competitive thinkers. The reason for that is the fact that Mars is the natural ruler of the 8th zodiac sign Scorpio, and therefore signifies intuition and in-depth knowledge.
The energies of the 8th disposition are actually very difficult to handle as they are complex and frightening. That is why most people are afraid to face the truth and rather be settled with mainstream information.
However, a strong Mars supports Mercury in Aries by providing abundant valor and courage to face fears and discover the truth of life including the hidden and mysterious part of it.
Facing truths requires diving deep into the unknown ocean to examine the massive bottom of the iceberg. It also requires diving into uncertainty and darkness, where the most information of life is hidden.
As this information is hidden, it cannot be seen, but only felt with the energies of the 8th disposition and strong Mars as the planet of intuition.
However, if an undignified Mars guides Mercury, these natives are also prone to manipulate the truth or make up stories for their own benefit.
That is because the 8th disposition negatively signifies secrets, lies, and conspiracies.
In other words, they are using their intelligence of wisdom to create conspiracies, if these benefit the native.
Gainful & Profitable
Mercury is the planet of merchants, which also carries the capacity to provide wealth or resources as per sidereal Vedic astrology.
Mercury owns two signs, Gemini and Virgo. Firstly, Mercury in Aries is in 11th from its own sign Gemini, which indicates gains and profits through the topics of the Gemini zodiac sign, which are communication, risking, entrepreneurship, publishing, writing, sports, etc.
Secondly, Mercury in Aries is in the 8th from its other sign Virgo, indicating sudden and unexpected gains through main activities as well as gambling, lottery, inheritance, and insurance.
When considering all these facts, this combination is a potent provider of great gains and riches. When diving deeper into the significations, the intellect and wit provided by Mercury give agility to effectively function in groups, communities, and large networks all of which belong to the 11th disposition.
Not only that it gives agility, but also proficiency which ensures various gains from merchandising, communicating, and other related activities.
A strong Mars as the guide of Mercury enhances these abilities by equipping them with motivation, passion, drive, dynamism, and power to initiate tasks.
As a result of this, these individuals with this set of combinations are very active, intelligent, and eager to take action and manifest their knowledge which are basic traits that allow them to be profitable in undertakings.
The 8th disposition signifies sudden events and positively indicates the sudden improvement of life through unexpected rewards and fulfillment of desires.
On the contrary, with undignified Mars, these natives work hard, earn well, and gain suddenly, but are also prone to lose the earned wealth through gambling, bad decisions, or uncontrolled impulsiveness.
The negatively manifested 8th disposition along with weak Mars gives them the mentality of a thief which they possibly apply in an attempt to gain using tricks or frauds.
Fluctuation Of Fortune
In the classical source Saravali, it is mentioned that one can lose hard-earned wealth, fall into financial debts, and have penalties regarding the same matters.
That is because of two major indications hidden behind the 8th disposition and nature of Mercury.
Namely, the 8th house is one of the difficult houses known as Dusthana Bhava in Jyotish which negatively signifies sudden losses and uncertainty.
Now as Mercury, the planet of merchants forms this disposition, it is indicated that such natives can have fluctuations in their fortunes. That is, there can be sudden losses.
The reason can be due to their rather impulsiveness. Namely, Mercury is somewhat incompatible with Aries because it needs time to analyze before taking action while Aries needs to take action immediately.
Mercury is also adaptable which means that the mentality is flickering and changing tactics regularly which is not suitable in the environment indicated by Aries, where only direct motion is preferred.
So the mismatch can sometimes cause errors in action taking which can lead to sudden losses. However, if the guide of Aries Mercury, which is Mars, is at a favorable angle and/or dignified, it indicates that the losses are restored quickly and transformed into wisdom which leads to sudden gains soon.
Resistant But Tricky Mentality
These natives are with resistant mentality but also a highly volatile mind as stated in classical source Saravali. The mental (Mercury is mental intelligence) resistance is provided by the fiery and courageous sign Aries.
Wherein the volatility comes through the adaptable nature of Mercury. With that being said, they are friendly and supportive, but also very aggressive and prone to start quarrels.
It also means that sometimes they appear to change positions often while the other times they maintain their viewpoints and position strictly with bravery in their hearts.
If Mars is dignified, they become extremely durable, disciplined, and competitive. Hence, they have the ability to handle opposition along with the courage to confront all the issues or obstacles.
This is how a strong Mars enhances the mental intellect provided by Mercury. As a result, they become extremely cunning as well in addition to being resistant.
A Mars, which is dignified or in a favorable disposition from Mercury (improves friendship), indicates that these natives have the special ability to be strategically swift and persistent at the same time.
It is very rare as a person can usually be either very straightforward or flickery. However, natives with Aries Mercury and well-disposed Mars can be both in different environments and harness different traits in demand.
If Aries Mercury is supported by the exalted Sun in Aries, then such natives are extremely righteous and never abuse their special skill of adaptability. That is, they harness their tactics and waver from side to side for righteous purposes only.
An undignified Mars indicates that they are prone to provoke disputes and fights for their selfish and secretive motives. It also means that the flickery and wavery mindset is caused due to lack of confidence or rapidly changing selfish motives.
When considering the fact that both Mercury and Mars are quick and fast in nature, these natives tend to become restless.
Moreover, Aries which is ruled by Mars is extremely straightforward and quick in taking action leaving less time for Mercury to analyze the steps ahead.
As a result, they become restless and quick in responding to the environment. Their strong mentality and critical thinking greatly support them in generating quick yet efficient responses.
If Mars is dignified, the Mercury in Aries is endowed with great power of concentration and forward motion. Hence, their restlessness benefits them in such cases. They are eager to take action fast and also have the capacity to analyze quickly. As a result, they are able to take their necessary steps without hesitation and fear.
On the contrary, an undignified Mars causes waste of its energies because of excessive hesitation, friction, and loss of concentration power. The inability to harness these restless energies effectively results in unnecessary tension and stress.
Writing & Publishing
Mercury as the planet of information transfer also gives great ability to succeed in activities that are related to the written form of communication, writing, or publishing in general.
The fiery energy of Mars will boost their activity and endurance in activities related to writing.
If Mars is positive in the chart, their arguments are well guided and help them to achieve their desired outcomes in their activities related to publishing. Furthermore, this dominating style of communication will help these natives a lot in their profession where this trait is highly valued.
That is to say, they are self-assertive and thus capable of authorizing themselves and their arguments to the public efficiently.
In Saravali it is stated that such natives can be involved with topics that are out of this world which is also related to the deep and unknown 8th disposition.
The energies of the 8th house belong to the triangle of salvation and thus carry very deeply spiritual energies. They are capable of channeling messages from hidden or divine sources.
Moreover, they are endowed with the ability to understand the hidden energies and capture these on paper or any other platform of scripture.
