“Perhaps it would be well to say that the old conception, replaced by a later choice, is a way of seeing and then seeing again.”Lillian Hellman
“In mythology Mercury is said to travel in all dimensions and all directions and to have witnessed creation, both original and perpetual. Having seen it all, he is wise an funny, and has an infinite number of perspectives.”Caroline W. Casey
Mercury will remain in the sign of Gemini throughout the retrograde period which will end June 22 in close proximity to the Summer Solstice on June 20. These two events so closely aligned in time, speak of a time when new and significant insights can emerge.
Gemini is a mercurial sign and gifted at taking many perspectives of any given situation. Some of the keywords for Mercury retrograde periods are rethink, revisit and redo. Additionally at this time a good word to add, is resolve. We live in such fast moving, future-oriented times when bringing resolution or another level of resolution to old issues can be something that is not adequately taken into consideration.
This time frame brings a good opportunity for this process. With Gemini and Mercury prominent in the sky, synchronicity is more likely to be a guidepost along the way. In ancient Greece there were statues of Mercury at crossroads providing direction.
One of the Sabian symbols for this time is,”A young gypsy emerging from the woods gazes at far cities.”
