“Let the river rock you like a cradle
Climb to the treetops, child, if you’re able
Let your hands tie a knot across the table.
Come and touch the things you cannot feel.
Close your fingertips and fly where I can’t hold you
Let the sun- rain fall and let the dewy clouds enfold you
And maybe you can sing to me the words that I just told you
If all the things you feel ain’t what they seem.
Then don’t mind me ’cause I ain’t nothin’ but a dream.” Jerry Merrick
“Strength needs to be redefined not as power-over but as power with.” Matthew Fox
Mercury , the mercurial god of commerce and communication is now opposing Neptune, the planet of dreams and illusions. This can make linear thinking and communications a bit cloudy. Best to double check the details. It does provide an excellent time for creative work, meditation and spiritual studies. This will be an influence through the 22nd or so.
Mars is preparing to enter the busy sign of Gemini on the 21st. Mars has a retrograde transit every two years and will station retrograde at 25 degrees of Gemini on 10/30/22 and retrograde down to 8 degrees Gemini where it will station direct on January 12, 2023.
This transit will provide good timing to look at our use of personal power and to carve a better path forward if desired.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A prophet bringing down a new law from the mountain.”
