“The Pueblo Indians told me that all Americans are crazy, and of course I was astonished and asked them why. They said,” Well they say they think in their heads. No sound person thinks in her head. We think in the heart.” Carl Jung
During his retrograde journey this month Mercury traverses very early Scorpio and the late degrees of Libra. Although Mercury retrograde periods are often referred to as a hassle or disruptive in terms of linear time, these time frames hold valuable information as well. It is an opportunity for a retreat of the mind in a sense – to review and revision the ways you have thought about things – particularly things related to the house or houses that Mercury is retrograding through.
With other very powerful planetary aspects now in play it is possible to get the the roots of foundational thoughts which when examined in the light of day are found to no longer be accurate. Yet when unacknowledged, these thoughts can continue to motivate behaviors and keep you stuck in an old pattern.
So do take some time to look at the houses in your chart that Mercury is now moving through to see what opportunities may lie ahead with a shift in your thinking.
