It has been a long, long time...and you are ready for a change.
Your Avatar of Mind has been experiencing an extended modulation of meaning as he swept back and forth through the swirling Waters of Scorpio.
You too should have felt something of this, as you benefited from a heightened state of mental acuity and passion, an offering and a gift of Insight that forged a deeper sense and sensibility about yourself and your world since the end of September.
Though your own Birth Chart or Natal position of Mercury must and will form the predominant and prevailing influence in your life as regards your faculty of Intelligent Perception (as well as indicate the means and manner of how you will connect with your world), you should know that your life experiences will be informed and circumscribed by the "Chart of the Present"...
The ever-unfolding dance of the planets moving through the signs of the Zodiac, as well as their alignment with one another as they form intricate patterns of meaning, this is the Living Chart of the Now which is the ever-present Pleroma of the Living Spirit, the Song and Dance of the Spiritual energies that inform, inspire and guide all life here upon your Earth.
As much as you are rightly told that your true path to Wisdom and Peace is "To Know Thyself", it is equally true that you need to be able to understand these worlds around you too. To be able to read the signs and portents of what is happening all around you or "out there" is the complimentary and integral part of this wondrous Journey by which you become.
You will realize that, in the end, all is truly One and whether you go inwards to understand or prefer to go outwards in order to come back in again, you will find these paths are but the one Path, and they will bring you back to your Source and lead you to your Destiny.
So as you walk upon this Earth, surrounded and immersed in this veritable Sea of Spiritual Resonances, you will sense these alternating patterns of energies which intersect and influence your own native dispositional nature. These shifting energies of signs and alignments can often be very subtle, and so they may pass unnoticed by many who have become enamored by the fascinations of this material plane.
These Gifts of the Spirit may be dismissed as wisps and whispers, for they will come upon you like the kiss of a gentle breeze or the brush of a feather...and so only the attentive and wise may discern these shifting winds of your Cosmos that can guide you here below...But it is also true, that sometimes all will take notice, as much larger forces will have their way, and the clamor and noise will awe and humble, bearing witness to the truth, "that even gods wrestle with the Mystery, the Great Unknown".
So if you wish to quicken your pace of progress, it would wise to develop your attentiveness and listen to these whispers and songs from above...to hearken, learn and align your still awakening self to these greater realms as they sing and dance, offering their Signs and Portents and Loving guidance for you striving here below.
As Mercury sails into Sagittarius for the next three weeks or so, allow your awareness to shift as you ponder this influence that can help to lift and focus your sensibilities for a while. You have need of a greater encompassing now, to make sense and harvest the meanings to the challenges you have just been through. You have need of this because Greater decisions and Responsibilities are almost upon you, and you need this time to consider from where you have come, what you have learned and to what you must now attend.
Look around your world, to other cultures and beliefs, and to other times in your histories too. For in this you will gain that special place, that Archimedean vantage point of a less biased, more inclusive and lovingly humble View...
The search for Truth and Meaning cannot be or lead to a destination.
For this is your never-ending journey of becoming...
Filled with Stories and Tales that have yet to be told.
You have come far, yet have much further still to go.
Dreaming, Loving, Creating and Becoming...
As you make your way homewards,
As you reach for the Stars.
