Mercury On Aquarius 10: Realizations And Realities
Mercury is, again, heading over Aquarius 10 – Mercury has transited over this degree last month, then retrograded over it and now is again highlighting this issue –
Mercury is on Aquarius 10: A PERSON WHO HAD FOR A TIME BECOME THE EMBODIMENT OF AN IDEAL IS MADE TO REALIZE THAT AS A PERSON THEY ARE NOT THIS IDEAL
This can bring up issues to do with seeing ourselves in a ‘true light’ – to be seeing through the facades that society puts on us, seeing through the conditioning of how we think society says we should be…perhaps this ‘revelation’ comes after a long time of not seeing the picture of what is going on in your life very clearly at all. We can remove the projections, both from ourselves and others. There can be falls from grace where we see through the actions of those we may have trusted, revered or listened to.
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to recognize, or realize, when conditions are changing or when there’s a need to work on themselves. It can imply having the ‘scales fall from your eyes’ about someone; you may have thought the world of them and then they are not the person you thought. You could wake up realizing that you’re not who or what you said or though you were. Relationships may be left behind. The revelation can be amazing, but it requires accurately assessing what is and what isn’t the “Ideal”. Popular support does not always equate with depth of character and self-worth. Fleeting opportunities may present themselves. Be wary of committing before you understand what you’re dealing with.
The Big Awakening. Staying true. Reversals of fortune. Waking up just in time. Not truly seeing people OR scales falling from one’s eyes. Projections of personality.
The Caution: Clinging to false feelings of fame. Falling off the pedestal. Not realizing or admitting changes. Disillusionment. Disappointment. Committing to things too quickly.
