Saturday, October 4, 2014: Today the sky gives you a quick reminder that you have more strength than you thought you did and that your personal power comes from within yourself rather than from trying to control people and situations. Take time this afternoon to contemplate that being one of the “guys”… or “gals… working hard and being patient is preferable to forcing a matter (Moon in Aquarius v/c 2:32 pm – 5:24 am tomorrow).
Yet another reason to be patient… Mercury retrograde also begins today. Mercury Rx is one of the astrological terms which has become part of modern day pop culture. Its effects are so well know that on January 07, 2010, during Mercury Rx, MSNBC commentator Rachel Maddow devoted a segment of her popular television show to the planet that is closest to the Sun. At the beginning of the segment, appropriately titled Ms. Information, Maddow first says… “perhaps this whole Mercury Rx thing is for real”, then precedes by reporting on a bizarre collection of recent security stories… ending the segment by proclaiming, “Mercury retrograde, I believe!” (watch “Stars align for weird news” here)
There’s a long list of things you can do to prepare for and avoid during any Mercury Rx cycle… they happen 3 times a year… but each Rx also has its own particular flavor. Ask yourself today if subconscious thoughts and beliefs are running your life… because this particular Mercury Rx (October 4 – 26) is about identifying them and changing them… it’s time to become mindful of the underlying context of your thoughts by looking into your heart, dusting the emotional cobwebs from all the dark corners of your mind and accepting yourself completely before throwing open the doors of your heart and mind to air things out.
Think back to mid-September. This is the touch point that opened issues that will be shifted to put you on the right path. October brings in changes, that will shift any new career and business opportunities into reality… as well as the relationships and partnerships within your new environment.
Knowing your own darkness is the best method for dealing with the darknesses of other people. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious. The most terrifying thing is to accept oneself completely. Your visions will become clear only when you can look into your own heart. Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes. ~ Carl Jung
