Mercury, the winged-foot messenger of the Gods,
Links the Supernal realms above,
With these lesser realms below.
His Caduceus of Consciousness,
Twin Serpents climb the rod.
Revealing and Concealing, for it is
A mystic symbol, of Ancient Truths.
It is the Promise of your Awakening,
For your Self-Becoming was foretold.
Today your Servant of the Light, the Lord Mercury, aligns with the Fourth and final corner of the Grand Cardinal Cross. You have already received his three previous gifts:
From Jupiter, you were reminded that you will find your Centered Space within the Ancient Truths that have always held you to your true Path and Destiny; from Uranus, you were reminded that you have the Jewel of Self-Transcendence within your own Higher Mind; and from Pluto you were reminded that you are to use your Will in order to form your own Sacred Center as you also protect all of Sacred Space.
From Jupiter you touched the Roots of Truth, from Uranus you touched the Wisdom within, and from Pluto you touched your Power to Become...and now there remains but one guardian, one last blessing on this Cardinal Cross of Consciousness, now it is time to listen to Mars.
Mars is your Avatar of Action and Intention. He moves with you through Time & Space as you stir the Waters of Life, as you Create these worlds with your Heart and Mind. He is the Passionate Planet, he is your source of becoming, he is your Desire.
For in "the beginning" there is and will always be the One, unmanifest, THAT, pure potential "waiting" outside of Time and Space...and then, the Desire to become stirs, the One becomes Manifest, and the One becomes the many, and this Cosmos comes into being, again.
You are a most important part of that becoming, of that Journey of Spirit and Life. And in your heart of hearts, in the Spark of the Divine that is your inmost, that same Desire to be, that same insistent drive to become is there...For you are here for one reason, you are driven by one purpose as is all of this marvelous Creation...You are here quite simply for this, you are here To Grow.
Today your Avatar of Mind stands opposite to your Avatar of Desire, and you need to consider them as they are and are meant to be. You are to hold them together for they are necessary to each other. You need to understand how they each are integral to one another as you journey on this pathway of Light.
For you will find in your many forms, experiences and lives, that Action without Thoughtful guidance will lead to pain and suffering for yourself and others. But equally you will find that Knowledge and Understanding for themselves are not enough, for you are here to become, you are here to Create and so you must Act too.
The Integral relationship of Mercury and Mars is how you learn to Master a most basic part of how you make and remake yourself and your worlds. That it is from Right Thinking that you will bring about Right Action...But it is equally true, that it is by Right Action that you lift yourself and your Mind from these realms below to the Starry realms above.
It is a most delicate balance,
To master your Mind and your Desires too.
But you are here to learn,
Through the one Law, Karma, Cause and Effect.
You will learn by thoughtful actions,
To make your world and yourself,
Into your Heart's Desire.
