Mercury goes DIRECT today after a particularly mischievous retrograde period. Mercury played with me as it usually does - challenging me to question of I trust that everything is working out or do I just throw my hands up in horror and disgust and rush to the library to check out the longest Masterpiece Theatre series and park myself on the couch until the madness passes? Actually I ended up methodically following through on details of checks sent to me that bounced and collecting much-needed funds in person and in cash. It was too close a call for comfort but all worked out better than I had expected, which is often the case.
For Thanksgiving I planted 200 tulip bulbs and half as many daffodils. The hope and trust in the cycle of my garden's life always helps me to stay connected to what is real and enduring, letting finances and all the stress thinking of finances can engender, fall into the "who cares?" category - where, on Thanksgiving, it belongs.
Mercury is now moving forward over the last 12 degrees of Scorpio (the same degrees it just passed over as it was moving backwards), going over for the 3rd time this year the issues of trust, betrayal, deep emotional responses, uncovering your deepest, darkest (and oh! so fragile!) underbelly. On December 12th Mercury will re-enter Sagittarius, covering ground of big picture belief systems and confronting your own level of honesty - where do you tell yourself (and others) the truth and where do you fudge the corners of reality to fit whatever story you might need to tell yourself. I know - not easy stuff, but WORTH addressing.
Remember to look to where 18 degrees Scorpio through 29 degrees Scorpio falls in your chart to see where this Mercury Direct will be revisiting in your own life.
I know for myself I can get quite anxious and stressed out when I find myself in any type of untruth - like when I tell myself that someone knows what's better for me than I do or that perhaps I don't value myself enough to tell myself the truth of my own connection to Source, that I am guided and protected every step of the way. These types of lies can be devastating and need to be addressed as soon as they are detected. I find when I am in alignment with my Higher Self, through accessing and using my INTUITION, I am able to avoid all kinds of self-lies and function with more ease, grace and trust in the unfolding story of my life.
