Remember the last time Mercury went retrograde and we turned to Sarah for guidance? Well, she’s on the job again. And her level-headed “making sense of chaos” manner brings even more wonderfulness to our doorstep.
Like this passage:
“The time of Mercury retrograde is always a time of truth, even when communications seem disrupted and misunderstandings are rife, because misunderstandings themselves are part of the truth of being human. When Mercury is retrograde we’re given a chance to address them and correct the course of events, rather than sweeping them under the carpet, ready to trip us up another day…… ”
When we strive to live in Truth, and with lovingkindness, we take that “next step” into being our best possible self. Approaching any astrological event with this attitude can only make good sense.
In my ADDITIONAL HELPFUL REMINDERS sidebar over <—– there, you can see how very many backwards planets we’ve got spinning right now. Should we be worried? Nope. We should be positive and hopeful, just like always.
When I woke up this afternoon (not quite as early as I’ve been aiming for, but not bad either), my message was a bit slow to arrive. Then it just made me laugh.
And now, back to me;
in caring for others we might neglect ourselves, but must not.
Self-Care is our key to walking this path with Joy.
So far? Truth and Joy. Gotcha. All combined, our regular rotation draw, the astrological conditions, and this message, well. What an intriguing dispatch from the Universe!
“Slowing Down ~ Knight of Rainbows ~ Mastery of the Physical (r)
Meditation is a kind of medicine …..
The Knight of Rainbows is a reminder that, just like the tortoise we carry our home with us wherever we go. There is no need to hurry, no need to seek shelter elsewhere. Even as we move into the depths of the emotional waters, we can remain self-contained and free from attachments.
It is a time when you are ready to let go of any expectations you have had about yourself or other people, and to take responsibility for any illusions you might have been carrying. There is no need to do anything but rest in the fullness of who you are right now. If desires and hopes and dreams are fading away, so much the better.
Their disappearance is making space for a new quality of stillness and acceptance of what is, and you are able to welcome this development in a way you have never been able to before. Savor this quality of slowing down, of coming to rest, and recognizing that you are already at home.”
And the Contrary version? Yeah, where it says “… you are ready to let go …” in the middle there? Right. We aren’t. We’d LIKE to, but we simply ain’t there yet.
This doesn’t mean that the Knight’s message is invalid, it just tells us that we have to approach this situation with more honesty, and more diligence. We might be holding back, and retaining a wee bit of that old mind-set.
This (multiple planet) retrograde phase is the PERFECT time to figure it out, though. So, whew!
