Mercury On Cancer 17: The Planting And Nourishing Degree
Mercury is on Cancer 17: THE SEED GROWS INTO KNOWLEDGE AND LIFE
What are you planting? What are you fertilising? What are you waiting to give birth to or nurturing the growth of? What are you learning?
This Symbol implies situations that are pregnant with meaning and significance. Something starts with the seed and it grows and grows until it becomes something reliable and strong. Sometimes, you may feel that you are not growing or developing properly, maybe dissatisfied at your perceived failings. Things take time to develop and, rather than being rushed, need to be nurtured to develop in their own time. It is important to start small and grow, giving them fertilizer and water in order for them to grow and flourish. Remember that small and steady beginnings can lead to a beautiful flowering.
Warning against grabbing for the fast dollar. Pregnancy, childbirth and growing up. Embryonic cells. The giving and receiving of lessons. The Kabala. The Tree of Life.
The Caution: Trying to do things that aren’t fully developed. Rushing and missing vital parts in the situation. Aborted attempts. Arrogance about how much one knows.
