Mercury On Aquarius 3: The Freedom Vs Compromise Degree
After what seems to be forever, Mercury is now making it’s journey forward over the Aquarian degrees it has traversed twice already….
Mercury is on Aquarius 3 – the Sabian Symbol for which is A DESERTER FROM THE NAVY STANDS SUDDENLY AWARE OF A DAWNING TRUTH: FREEDOM IS NEVER THE RESULT OF COMPROMISE
What do you need to walk away from? Where are you compromising your life because you can’t, or won’t, say no? How can you arrange it so you’re more true to your objectives? Do you stay because you don’t know if it will be worse, harder, lonelier, too difficult, etc, to go? Have you signed up for something that has proven to be too rigorous, too time consuming, too much of a compromise?
I so love this quote from this Symbol: Freedom Is Never The Result Of Compromise.
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to listen to one’s conscience, to know when to do one’s duty, step up to the mark, or, when it’s time to leave, say enough is enough and ‘I am not doing this anymore.’ You may be finding that rigorous restraints and rules are no longer bearable. A decision to opt out may be a moral one or to maintain a free spirit. One shouldn’t have to “Compromise” themselves in order to be safe, secure, employed, or have a purpose in life. However, there are consequences for “Deserting” – not playing the game. Are you prepared for them? It can also show being taken away from home and family for reasons not of one’s choosing.
Rebellion. Leaving although allegiance was pledged. Jumping ship. Wrestling with one’s conscience. Going AWOL. Packing up and leaving. Sudden realizations. Opting out.
The Caution: Not being prepared to play by the rules. Withdrawing when one should be involved in a physical, mental or emotional way. Refusal. Rats deserting the sinking ship.
