All things great & small

Explorations into the combined retrogrades of Aquarius Mercury/Jupiter Leo.
Mercury is direct, (out of shadow March 4).
Jupiter direct at 12 Leo on April 8.

What can be gleaned from these thinking, communication retrogrades ?

Sevens are mysterious, different, intellectual and metaphysical.  Ruled by Uranus (Aquarius) seven represents freedom, change and inventive eccentricity.  Seven of pents represents contemplation of action, patience and being at a crossroads.

I am feeling this one.  No longer waiting for Bloom, it’s done.  Hallelujah !  Orli’s chart was one of my most read posts here.  I completed a major undertaking recently, was left wondering …”now what ?”  Actually I do know my next few steps, but with the giant project over, I had to re-form another big picture, brainstorm another lofty goal.

I had lost what, over time, had become my refuge, or so I thought.
This card points to re-evaluation for all of us.

Uranian/Seven rant:
No one is alone, truly alone – for we are all on this rock/boat together in a vast sea of space.  Not only are we physically (via the elements) and psychically connected, but know also other dimensions are present as well.  We have guides, angels (Uranus rules angels and Aquarius) and messenger friends in the animal world as well.  We are loved and supported though we may at times have felt abandoned, that is not the case.
This one in particular is for all you single folks out there…keep going…if I can keep going through hell, so can you – just keep going.  I’ll see you on the other side.

Now for Jupiter which is still retrograde for several weeks…
What have we to glean from this transit ?

Not growing fast enough, creative misses, skillcraft fumbles, uncontrolled waste, scattering energies.  Oh yeah…Jupiter does love to explore new vistas, and the seemingly relentless navel-gazing may be getting a bit old.  Believe me I get it, my 8th/12th solar, just call me swamp thing.

Fives are ruled by Mercury – flexible, full of surprises and opportunity.

This retrograde is here to teach us creative patience, control and stillness.  See the irony and laugh at distractions for they are great teachers.  Goats, gators, elephants and birds are totem messengers, but so are flies and mosquitoes.
All things great and small.

Quicksilver retrograde runaround:
Mercury into Aquarius Jan 4, (in shadow 6th) retrograde at 17 degrees on the 21, direct on Feb 11 at 1 degree Aquarius (out of shadow March 4)

Quicksilver was fathered by Magneto – brill, yeah ?  
Mercury is the lower octave of Uranus aka magnetics.  

Mercury retrograde in Aquarius is particularly weird because perceptions of space-time are skewed – shifting and changing like prismatic flashes in a crystal prism.  Thoughts emerge from odd spectrums.  Waves and vibrations flare – deliver clarity – then fade, for another idea has already taken its place.

Accept the intuitive leaps and inventions your synapses are firing across the chasms.
The greek root of synapse means join together. 

Track patterns, note insights !
Full Leo Moon opposite Aquarius Sun is delivering heaps of creative brainstorms with Jupiter Rx in tow.  Mercury Rx in Aquarius is ahead of its time & ahead of your time.  Messages incoming may not make sense at this moment – but do not idly dismiss them – they will make perfect sense in the future.

File your Mercury/Jupiter Retrograde (lower/higher mind) insights for analysis downstream.  Right now, just let your consciousness flow.

Peace Out

Lady of Swords reps Merc Rx, I pulled another to see what she was looking at in the past, which is Queen of Vessels.  This lady speaks/thinks with beauty and elegance – she is the silence and mystery of the High Priestess given voice.  She enlightens with cutting edge intellect in tandem with love and charm.

Artistic sensitivities focused into words, poetry, voice and inspirations are evident by this card combo.  Mercury stations retrograde while sandwiched between Aquarius Moon and Venus right after the 0 degree New Moon (conjunct Sun) in Aquarius.  Stations are filled with energy buzzing/shifting – separation from one thing and magnetic attraction to another is very likely during this time.

Mercury is exalted in Aquarius granting prime functioning and optimization of thinking and communication.  This transit will be intensive for seeing two sides of everything, see your natal Aquarius house for your specific focus.

Revise, revision, rework, re-imagine most of all – REINVENT. 
Laying new neural nets is a given.

Standard Merc Rx info: great time to edit, internal process/sort – not so great for communications by the direct route.  Save all your info, machinery can go wonky esp. computers, phones, etc..  Messages from other dimensions (influence of Uranus) your past, pets (Mercury), totems and synchronicities are more likely while Mercury goes reboot in Aquarius.

Note this – you may also get the urge to pick up an old chestnut for re-examination, particularly prior to New Moon.
Think Twice.
New Moon brings new liberating energies, use them in your favor !

The Queen of Vessels represents what Mercury Rx investigates, she is emotional water coupled with logical air.  Her sealed vessel bears a question mark, contains a mystery which can only be revealed by living this transit of Mercury.  KNOWING cracks with lightning/storm – ozone buzz.  It defies logic, it is beyond emotional feeling and earthly manifestation of proof – it just is what it is.
No need to know how you know – know anyway.

Queen reminds us that there is a destined time and place to ground unseen energies.
