Mercury Direct at 1 Degree of Aquarius

“If you have insight you use your inner eye, your inner ear, to pierce to the heart of things, and have no need of intellectual knowledge.” Chuang- Tsu

Mercury stationed direct on Wed 2/11 although it may not feel like it is out of its retrograde phase until it picks up speed next week. Always a time that is ripe for revelations through a process of review an revision, this Mercury retrograde period was no exception. The Sabian symbol associated with the 1 degree Aquarius station is, “An unexpected thunderstorm.” Lynda Hill, author of a book on the symbols writes, “Thunderstorms are powerhouses of energy and can often unleash incredible levels of tension and release. Thunderstorms often clear the air after an extreme buildup of energy.”

When re thinking the meaning of this retrograde period for you it is wise to heed ideas or intuitions which although perhaps unexpected or unanticipated- symbolize a similar trajectory – a build up of tension, then release followed by clarity and a sense of relief.
