Sunday 05 Nov- 2.19 pm EST Mercury visits Sagittarius until Jan 10/11, 2018.
As I write this it is Monday afternoon Nov 06. Yesterday we switched to Standard Time here in Ontario. We gained an hour but the whole day felt like a Time Warp. Mercury (our thoughts and perceptions) shifted into Sagittarius at 2.19 pm EST. Perhaps that added to the feeling of confusion. Sagittarius is the Mutable Fire sign and requires adaptability, flexibility, and going with the flow. Notice how long Mercury is visiting here. At his fastest speed he usually spends about 3 weeks in a sign. But he will be retrograde (yes again) Dec 03 to 22 so that accounts for his 9+ weeks in Sagittarius.
Sagittarius is the sign of the seeker. It is associated with religion, philosophy, and ideology. Its highest expression is to raise our vibration from the limited mind to Spiritual Consciousness. It will be interesting to see how this Mercury Rx influences the collective consciousness. The collective is in need of revision and realignment. Mercury Rx will be asking all of us to “raise our vibration” from unconsciousness to Cosmic Awareness. Our Animal Totem guides for the Northern Hemisphere are Elk, strength and stamina, and Owl, the wisdom to see through deception. Owl is a very important guide at this time as secrets and lies are continuing to be exposed. Owl helps see the truth. For the Southern Hemisphere your guide for this Mercury journey is Deer, sensitivity and compassionate caring. Of course the living sky has no division so the Totems are available to us all regardless of where we are located on Earth.
Mercury’s journey through Sagittarius is guided by Jupiter in Scorpio. Healing, release, transformation, and re-birth. The Sacred Totem for Scorpio is the Phoenix, resurrection and rebirth. The Soul Centered guide is the Earth. She is currently in Taurus and asking all of us to embrace healing individually so she too may heal. This Mercury Rx is the opportunity for us all to walk through the doorway to wholeness.
Here are the important dates for this Mercury journey. We will write more as the journey continues.
Nov 14- Mercury enters his retrograde shadow. Be conscious and aware.
Dec 03- 2.34 am EST- Mercury turns retrograde at 29 degrees Sagittarius. Revision time.
Dec 22- 9.51 am EST- Mercury turns direct at 13 degrees Sagittarius. Realignment time.
Jan 10- 2018- Mercury leaves his retrograde shadow and enters Capricorn. Focus on Soul Purpose and following your vision.
Tuesday Nov 07- 6.38 am EST- Venus visits Scorpio until Dec 01- 4.14 am EST
In traditional astrology Venus is said to be in her detriment in Scorpio as she is the natural ruler of its opposite sign Taurus. (She is also considered weak in Aries and Virgo). But I have found she is powerful when visiting the sign of healing and transformation. Her Animal Totem guides are Snake, shedding the old and re-birth (Northern Hemisphere) and Beaver, clearing the clutter and building the new (Southern Hemisphere). The clutter is physical, mental, and emotional wounds that keep us stuck in limitation and restriction. Venus in Scorpio is the time for healing, release, and Transformation, especially in relationship. Mars is the Soul Centered ruler of Venus in Scorpio and they are in the new phase of their relationship cycle which began on Oct 05 in Virgo, the Rainbow Bridge of Healing into Wholeness. Before relationship can be healed, self-healing must happen. Pluto in Capricorn (transforming society) is also a guide for this Venus journey. He and Venus will open a doorway of transformation on Nov 21. Pay attention to what occurs around that time both personally and in the world. Venus in Scorpio will reveal more secrets.
So we have headed into a time of revision and deep healing. Venus and Jupiter will meet spectacularly on the morning of Nov 13 before sunrise. Venus is love and Jupiter is expansion and growth of our spiritual consciousness. Be open to the possibilities. The Phoenix will be rising.
