If you have Mercury in Aries, you are outspoken and direct in speech and actions. Your thoughts are original and filled with enthusiasm and great energy. You love a good argument or debate and like to compete and strategize with your mind. You say what you mean and don’t pull any punches. You are opinionated and love to share those opinions, even if not asked to do so. You love controversy and might need to develop a little more tact in how you express your own thoughts. Your mind is restless and filled with much nervous energy. It is hard for you to sit still. You always have to be busy, especially with your hands. Mechanical ability may be present. Your thoughts and words are quick and impulsive and you may at times suffer from foot-in-mouth disease. A lack of patience and concentration in carrying out your plans may be evident. Great wit and an entertaining personality help make you popular. You don’t like to be told how to do things and want the freedom to do things your own way. There never seems to be enough time to do all the things you have on your mind. You may be quick-tempered, but hardly ever carry a grudge. You get over things quickly, then move on.
Mercury in Aries / Sun in Pisces
Jerry Lewis in the Elevator
This adds necessary decisiveness, a more positive outlook, and to a certain extent more self-assurance. The imagination will be ignited, and as a result creative potential will be expressed positively when in other cases it can lie dormant due to lack of self-confidence. The high emotional level of Pisces will be expressed, and the ability to communicate feelings enhanced.
The Sun in Pisces with Mercury in Aries gives the ability to play upon human emotions, to present ideas dramatically, and to communicate subtleties of thought. Involvement in the theater, and acting in general would be one likely avenue of success for this position.
Piscean strength of will (usually lacking) should be increased.

Quinton Tarantino – Four Rooms
The Arian need for action, and to be out in front, is spiced with extremely quick thinking processes. There is a general hastiness, with patience almost non-existent, unless the Moon or Ascendant suggest otherwise.
Directness of approach, decisiveness and positive, uncomplicated thinking are splendidly in tune with Arian characteristics, and if they can be tempered the individual will certainly make their mark on the world.
Impulsive, hasty actions with unnecessary risk-taking and selfishness due to a lack of thought should be controlled.

Speed and vivacity are added to the stable Taurean type, making one less cautious but more assertively decisive. However, the individual will also be less patient and may even show some irritation when others do not greet their ideas or suggestions in the right way.
Problems and projects are approached with realism and enthusiasm, and the Taurean need for careful planning will be enhanced by the ability to grasp a situation quickly and concisely. A spirit of enterprise blends with the Taurean business ability.
