Mercury On Aquarius 9: A Flag Turning Into An Eagle
On top of the Army Officers On Dress Parade degree (see below), we have Mercury on Aquarius 9. This seems to back up the desire to be seen, to ‘trumpet’ our thoughts, realizations, ideals, patriotism perhaps – all kinds of things.
This Symbol shows the ability, or the need, to be able to speak about your ideals and passions and to spread the message far and wide. You can have powerful messages of serious ideals, sometimes political, sometimes not. One can see a “Flag” and salute it, or not. It usually depends on what the flag is signifying. Your ideas, ideals, gifts, talents, inventions, realizations are all your “Flag”. To release these into the environment is the “Turning Into an Eagle”. It is the taking off and flying that allows the energy to be released. You may find that you are no longer just projecting an image, but true power. You could feel like you’ve been reborn – having had some amazing realization or insight.
You can ‘run things up the flagpole’ to see how they ‘take off’… see what happens when you release your creative drive as an expression of yourself.
Turning away from having to prove oneself. Rising above the commonplace. Ascension. Rebirth. Shouting joy from the treetops. Sharing with others. High flight. Visions. Flags.
The Caution: Full blown patriotism. Forcefully displaying beliefs. Bragging. Advertising and propaganda. Blowing one’s horn. Ramming one’s conviction at others. Non-stop talk.
