You have had your three weeks of wondering,
Of questioning, re-examining and self-reflecting.
It was your precious pause, a space-time for inward contemplation and meditation,
For making your way closer, towards Peace of Mind.
Now Mercury’s looping from Water to Air and back continues,
And it is time for you to move forward too,
Guided by your refreshed Thought-Forms, and
Inspired by your renewal of Feeling-Forms.
The Dance of Hermes shifts, and your Avatar of Mind moves forward once again. He calls to you, and you need to bend your attention outwards once again. Here is what I wrote about this shift in my General Forecast for 2014:
Mercury Direct (July 1 until October 4)
It is time to apply those lessons and discoveries about your Feelings/Thoughts that you have made over the past three weeks. Knowing better how they wonderfully influence one another, you can take with you that more nuanced blend of mind/feeling now as you move outwardly to bring this understanding into your conduct and communications.
Mercury’s weaving of your senses and sensibilities creates the thought-formed matrix that integrally links your outer and inner worlds, of what is “out there” with your reflecting mirror of that “in here”. This particular series of Mercury retrogrades, of Water to Air and back to Water, is helping you to better understand the true nature of you and your mind.
For though it is commonly accepted that there is some sort of divide between your “thinking” self and your “feeling” or emotional self, this is really not true in your real nature, in your life and the world around you, for really they and you are all together as one. The Truth is you are a whole, a constellation of Energy-Forms.
All of these so called “parts” of you cannot be separated from one another, nor can they function at all without each of them being as they are and will always be, as being whole and part of one another too. They are the many ones of you their greater One, and as such they are all held together and guided by your Higher Self. That Higher Self is your One, who gathers and holds all of these many parts of you, who lovingly forms your Presence of Oneness as your spark of the Divine.
You Think and you Feel, and much of how and what you know as your Knowledge or Knowing is because you have fused and melded your Rational-Objective Mind with your Intuitive-Feeling Mind. You can only perceive and understand so much with the present-day development of your senses and reasoning powers. But with your Intuitional nature, and guided by your Higher Self in the end, you are able to stretch beyond those limits and reach deeper and higher than reason alone can ever bring you.
Your Mind and your Feelings are not at odds with one another, they are companions in your journey, each necessary and supportive to one another and to you. They are constantly engaged in a beautiful Dance of Meaning whereby you "Reason-Intuit-Reason-Intuit..." in a virtual spiral of meaning, as you constantly expand into an ever more encompassing experience of yourself and your world.
Mercury moves forward…
And so shall you.
You have Clearer Thoughts, Finer Feelings,
The Integral Path your only Way,
To Live in Light and by Love,
To be One.
