Ready? (You know you are, really you are ready)...Then Pivot!
That's right, Hermes has finished his inner peregrinations, his pilgrimage within your mind...exploring...questioning...reexamining...your beliefs, principles and truths has run its course and you are moving forward now...You are clearer, wiser...and more humble, that's for sure. All those activities and projects, all those missing messages (and packages), all those functions or activities that seemed to stall or slow down, well now it is time to forge ahead!
The last 3 weeks have provided numerous upsets, annoyances and exasperations along the lines of "who let the gremlins out, again?!"; and that's what we usually notice about Mercury's retro-motion...but it is only the outward manifestation of a change of energies that you are supposed to take note of and then use. You need times like these with its re-directionality to go inside, to ponder, to reflect and re-consider the themes and challenges of the sign Mercury is moving through. But, of course, life goes on and so those minor (and sometimes major) annoyances accompany his backward gambol.
But now, now you go forward with Mercury in Sagittarius till January 8. He's been in Sagittarius as I noted since November 2, and that is a very long time for Mercury to be in one sign! It is a wonderful, extended opportunity, now deepened and revised by Mercury's circumambulation, to seek to understand yourself and one another better by expanding, exploring and sharing your discoveries, your beliefs and your points of view. You have become wiser and so more humble as you rooted out some of your outworn assumptions, outlooks and beliefs. Your truth became refined and hopefully more nuanced as you move to that greater understanding that the process of revelation is and will always be never-ending as you journey in Life-Consciousness-Spirit.
Remember now, with Mercury in Sagittarius you are positioned to be bold and direct, to speak with enthusiasm and confidence, because you are energized with the notion that you've got "truth" on your side...and so you do, you always do...relatively speaking. But so does that other person you are trying to persuade. And, of course, both of you are incapable of being all-knowing and without error so you had better wrap that truth in a little humility. For if your inner journey the last 3 weeks has taught you anything it is that truth is relative...relative to your development and capacity for understanding yourself and your world...and what you hold to be true today is just a stepping stone to a greater awareness that awaits you.
So yes, speak your truth...but look and listen too! For you do not know what you do not know...
Your true and loving middle path is to be found in that balanced blending of mutually increasing self-confidence and humility.
Be wise as a serpent, and gentle as a dove!
