The trials and tribulations of Mercury retrograde are ending today. Oh yes, it seems as if it causes nothing but trouble, that when Hermes retraces his steps, Communications, Technology, Relationships…All Life seems to get turned upside down/inside out. But really, this is not the case at all!
Yes, it appears that this is so, but appearances are deceiving. Mercury is not “causing” these things. Remember, you are the “Actor” down here, and these energies that are moving through and around you, are not there to frustrate or harm you. You just need to understand and work with them.
For the past three weeks everyone was, whether they realized it or not, everyone was more Introspective/Contemplative. So outward activities and communications were more challenging. Either through a failure to approach the matter attentively, or to receive the message or action attentively. From either one side or both, errors would enter in.
But this was from a failure to appreciate this shift in the Song of Spirit that flows through and around you.
What Mercury retrograde offers you is a gift…But life does go on.
So you just have to learn to be even more…
Humble, Thoughtful and Attentive.
Whenever these Winds of the Spirit swirl…Listen for these shifts in the Song of Spirit, so that you may align yourself with the Greater Self, within which you truly abide.
I wrote of this turning in my General Forecast for 2014:
Mercury Direct (October 25 until February 6, 2015)
Mercury goes direct until February of 2016. You have completed three rounds of Water/Air retrogrades of Mercury. This three-fold dance that showed you the linkage between your Feelings and Thoughts ends with this reminder that for you to experience the passion of a more perfect Union depends upon your Consciousness being guided by true Justice and shared Principles, that you must ever be guided by tolerance and understanding for one another.
Time to turn again…
To consider more what is “out there”,
To show how more adept you have become, as
You move with a new-found Grace,
Into that Space between I and Thou.
Your Inner wanderings, first by Water and now by Air,
Revealing more truly your relationship to yourself,
Were to review/revise your assumptions and patterns,
Which you forge as your “half” of any relationship you are in.
But now you must take this Gift of Contemplation,
Hermes’s Pensive Pause,
You must turn with Mercury now and build a better bridge of Understanding,
Between yourself and one another.
The Vita Contemplative must give way to this “Time of Praxis”,
For you are here to build with one another a far more Intelligent Social Space.
That only in your Mutual understanding and support for one another,
Only in this do you fulfill your true heart’s desire,
To Love and be Loved.
To know that you cannot see, you cannot know,
Without the Light of Understanding that you shine,
For one another.
The Light of Understanding,
That is formed and framed,
