Mercury On Gemini 16: A Woman Activist Dramatizing Her Cause
Mercury is on Gemini 16: A WOMAN ACTIVIST ON A PLATFORM, IN AN EMOTIONAL SPEECH, DRAMATIZING HER CAUSE
This is yet another Gemini degree of ‘protest’ – social or personal, she has something she needs to get off her chest. The situation may not even be her gripe; it could be something that’s happening in the world that she’s had enough of. Of course, it could be that she (or he – we don’t have to stick with the genders with the Sabian Symbols) feels the urge to speak out about something that bothers her personally.
On the other hand, this could be a situation of conservatives threatening to set themselves on fire if gay marriage goes through.
This Symbol shows the periodic need to be able to voice one’s needs, frustrations or demands without fear of being reprimanded. Sometimes, you may feel misunderstood and disadvantaged simply because of who you are or the position you hold. Even when you stand up for what you feel, you may strike resistance, partly due to others’ ignorance. You must press your case or the status quo will remain. If the cause is just and your communications are clear, you will be heard by those who understand or resonate with what you are saying and your influence will spread.
Stating one’s case. Revealing social passions. Being a mouthpiece for personal or social causes. Wanting people to listen and care. Taking it to the streets. Having a platform.
The Caution: Aggressively pressing opinions on the unwilling and disinterested. Rational or political structures overriding one’s life. Throwing tantrums and yelling. Soapboxes.
