Mercury On Aries 26: A Person Possessed Of Many Gifts

 In Lunar Stories by Lynda Hill

The Sabian Symbol for Mercury is Aries 26: A PERSON POSSESSED OF MORE GIFTS THAN THEY CAN HOLD

A Man With More Gifts Than He Can HandleThis can have us feeling like we are juggling with too many things at once… how to get this done, how to get this thing finished, started, how to move in amongst the clutter of our lives, how to get what we want out there instead of taking up space in our hearts and minds. Juggling indeed…

This Symbol often shows someone who has more talent, more possessions, and more gifts than most other people. Perhaps too much is demanded or expected of you or you expect life to give you more and more and more. Recognize that you are surrounded by abundance, but perhaps you are unable to experience it all at once. If you don’t feel you have the ability to cope with all that life throws at you then look in your ‘storehouse’ and you could be surprised at talents you have that have never even been used.

Potentiality. Obsessions about ‘having things’ or achieving goals. Counting ones blessings. A jack of all trades. Having to drop things because you can’t contain them.

The Caution: Not focusing on one issue at a time, or ideas of real worth, and not really achieving anything. Inability to gain or contain everything. Unrestrained ambitions.

    Wow! Thank you so much Lynda.

    This symbol coupled with your interpretation of the Pisces 20 degree, Sunday evening here PST, of the 12th has me flying with tons of energy and so much potentiality starting to finally move and materialize this weekend!

    I had a encounter with a Heron today. He wad there smack dab in my path. Sending me some message. Wish I could attach a photo of this beautiful meeting.

    When I went home and read about the symbolic meaning, and the exact same mention here in the symbols intrepretation mentioning “jack of all trades”, I could not believe how this all mirrored my life’s current energy dynamic, multi leveled perception and in it’s speed learning to quickly understand how to navigate in this opening perspective.

    Here is a bit of an interesting description i found online (among others),about the Heron totom guide which I think accentuates finely, our Mercury on this Sabian degree.

    “Those with the heron as a guide or totem these people are either very skilled in a myriad of different elements, or they are branching out in various skills, and the heron is offering confidence in the process.

    Comfort in multiple elements is also symbolic of easy transitions. If you find yourself in liminal spaces, that is, if you find yourself ‘in-between’ phases, places or people in your life, the heron can give guidance on how to easily move through those ‘in-between’ moments of your life.

    Meaning of the heron deals with being comfortable in spaces that are neither here, nor there. It prefers hunting at twilight, which is a symbolic and magical time of ‘in-between’. The heron will have one foot on land, and one foot in the water – this action has been recognized by ancient cultures as a sign of liminality – of crossing into the a space that is neither here, nor there.

    Lynda would love to have your impressions continuing thoughts.
