Mercury in Scorpio – Don’t Be Cruel

RisaThe Sun and Mercury join forces in Scorpio Thursday - Hermes, the messenger (Mercury) sending information about Scorpio’s Nine Tests to humanity via the Sun.  With Mercury in Scorpio we all become resourceful, determined, fearless, intuitive, quite witty, investigative, profound and filled with desires, however secretly and with great mystery. We may go into hiding, display suspicion and skepticism, stubbornness, determination and be emotionally on edge. Scorpio presents an interesting mix of depth-psychology behaviors. Research is best during Mercury in Scorpio. We’ll all be deeply searching for something seeking the heart of all matters. When we find what we’re searching for we’ll “capture” it and make it our own. Our intelligence becomes highly instinctive, and we’ll learn how to strategize. There is a warning with Mercury in Scorpio. That we do not harshly criticize and judge, opinionate or insinuate for Mercury’s communication while in Scorpio could destroy due to its power, force, passion and intensity. Mercury in Scorpio can also be vindictive. Intrigue, hidden motives, and mysteries may appear. We must ask if they are real or mental illusions. We will challenge others and be challenged in return. Everyone may begin to wear black and sales of sunglasses will skyrocket. We are to remember Elvis’ (Jupiter in Scorpio) song “Don’t be Cruel.”

Friday is the feast day of St. Nicholas. Saturday is Richard Stockton’s comedy show, Planet Cruz, 8:00, Kuumbwa www.planetcruz.org/).

Wednesday is Veterans or Remembrance Day. We honor those who served our country and our planet. We pray for them in gratitude. (More on Mercury esoterically www.nightlightnews.com)

ARIES (March 21-April 20) Everything in the introduction applies to you because Mercury in Scorpio is presently moving through your natural Scorpio house. I suggest you read it carefully, underline what’s curious and make intentions to observe your life within this context. One could say you’ve become a Scorpio for a while. This is actually good for you. Scorpio gives you needed depth.

TAURUS
(April 21-May 21) You move into full strategic mode, seeking all ways to transform and reorient both yourself and others. Resources are assessed and you wisely use, disperse and then multiply them over and over. Saturn in Libra has just moved into your house of health and service. We already know you’re serving. It’s your health you must be concerned with. Water, sleep, vitamins, green drinks, sunshine, prayer.

GEMINI
(May 22-June 20)Now is the time to share with others your early life, its ups and down and the vicissitudes of family life. I will assume there was much chaos creating within you how to self balance and understanding life in the midst of disorder. What were the good messages and what were the not-so-good? Understand early lives condition adult lives till we reorient and transform ourselves. This is our job and everyone’s task. Speaking up now.

CANCER
(June 21-July 20) Are you nurturing others and in turn nurturing self? Where do you belong and what is the present state of where you live? What is your creative outlet? Do you have one and is that being nurtured? Many in-depth questions must be asked so you don’t become unsettled psychologically, emotionally, physically or mentally. As you seek a sense of purpose, have the intention to become organized in all areas of your life. This leads to creativity.

LEO (July 21-Aug. 22) You will recognize how deeply your mind is held by emotional patterns created when just a child leading you into developing a great imagination, intuition and a depository of knowledge unequalled by most. This is good until you fall into introversion (and at times gloom) not allowing you exit. Here you dream and built castles in the air. You’re like Persephone but you eat apples instead of pomegranites. Invite others to eat apples with you.

VIRGO
(Aug. 23-Sept. 22) There is such a great aspiration to fix things, to help and to heal others, to serve, to offer assistance and to provide necessary information when things go awry. All thoughts in the coming month may turn inward. You may create a secret room or sanctuary, dream of a secret garden with a secret door. It would be good to actually begin to manifest this, making it a goal for the coming year. What would it look like? What would it hold?

LIBRA
(Sept. 23-Oct. 22) Participation in various arts would elevate concentration and stimulate imagination. Socialibility, friendship and affection should be linked to your spirituality, music, the arts. Actually as leader among your friends, inviting them to participate with you in these endeavors would enliven their minds, open their hearts, and expand their vision and futures. The practical and financial aren’t far behind either in terms of your material success. Try to not
be irritable.

SCORPIO
(Oct. 23-Nov. 21) In the weeks to come you will shift and change, becoming quick-witted and decisive, outgoing, talkative, group and idea oriented. This lasts for just a bit of time so take advantage of it entering groups that inspire like Transition Town, sustainability, food, gardening and permaculture groups. You may travel having energy to explore realities not often available. You’ll bring home what you learned. Share it with everyone. Then begin to build.

SAGITTARIUS
(Nov. 22-Dec. 20) The days find you very sensitive, intuitive, imaginative. Self confidence slips into hiding. You find and feel your way into different realms that don’t include simply reasoning out reality. Your internal self is very powerful, calling you to music, art and poetry. Not necessarily to your usual skills but to others so you may learn more and prepare for later more expansive and unrestrained creations. You’re being retrained in hidden areas. Remain in seclusion.

CAPRICORN
(Dec. 21-Jan. 20) Maintain your directness of communication and truth-telling. Know that what you seek is what everyone needs but you must bring it into form and matter. You’re the builder. Perhaps you are not aware of your position of authority. The climbing of that ladder occurred due to you intellectual capacities along with your ability to observe, assess and to, most importantly, love. Your chosen field is yet to find you. Carry on wherever you are with poise.

AQUARIUS
(Jan. 21-Feb. 18) The next weeks will reveal to you different abilities than experienced before. You will become methodical and practical, organized, reasoned and, surprisingly patient. Most important for you is learning something new or traveling which creates a new reality where learning happens. You will think of the many ways and paths toward success. You might need to some stronger shoes for that endeavor.

PISCES
(Feb.19-March 20) You will seek honesty in the coming weeks and will experience perhaps a bit of shock when the opposite appears. Notice that you will change a lot, studying multiple subjects yet not staying too long with one. You will speak the truth and find a neutral tone in which to convey difficult information. This is a sign of authority, rightly placed, where the mind and heart are balanced. Whatever you choose there is success. You must call in strength, though, to withstand.

We Hold These Truths to Be Self-Evident

Saturday, July 4, is the 239th birthday of the United States, commemorating the signing of the Declaration of Independence (the U.S. astrology chart has Aquarius moon—freedom for its people, by its people). Cancer, a liberating and initiating sign, is the “gate” where Spirit enters matter. Cancer receives and distributes Ray 3 (Divine Intelligence) and Ray 7 (new rules, new rhythms, new free nation under God). Cancer represents an intelligent freethinking humanity that can and must create right economics for the world. This means a policy of sharing, an opportunity for the U.S. when Venus (money, resources, possessions, etc.) retrogrades July and August in Leo (the heart of the matter). The United States has a unique spiritual task for the world: to lead humanity within and toward the light, accomplished by its people who must first awaken to this task, learn discrimination and be directed by the soul to assume the Herculean task of spiritual world leadership. Let us review the first words of our Constitution: “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect Union, establish justice, ensure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.” Let us form that union together. The following is a review of the spiritual tasks for each sign. Read all the signs. They all apply to everyone.
