Mercury on Libra 17: A Retired Sea Captain Watching Ships Entering And Leaving
Mercury is on Libra 17: A RETIRED SEA CAPTAIN WATCHES SHIPS ENTERING AND LEAVING THE HARBOR –
Mercury was on the Boat Landing Washed Away yesterday and we might be feeling like not only do we have nowhere to dock (our emotions, our lives, our responses, our relationships or whatever), but, we might also have run out of energy to even try to participate… more interesting and very challenging degrees are coming in the coming few days. It pays to take it easy and see what lessons have been learned from this last Mercury retrograde period.[Thank goodness, or something, that the hurricane that hit Mexico did not cause more damage than it did. I feel that the collective prayers probably helped with it – at least it’s nice to imagine that they did. 🙂 ]
This Symbol speaks of the necessity in life of finding time for quiet recollection. You may feel that the stormy, unpredictable, emotional life is something you can, or need to, leave behind; to opt out. But like the sea captain, there will always be the frustration in the desire to return and get back amongst it. An objective and calm understanding of life’s experiences is available, but know when to rest and when to be active and work as merely looking out at the world from a confined perspective and feeling like you have no choice but to sit and watch is unlikely to bring the world to you.
Memories and peaceful contemplation. Writing memoirs. Being a spectator rather than a participant. Disconnection from the past. Nostalgia. Safe ports or harbors. Retiring.
The Caution: Copping-out, escaping from reality. Relying on past experiences. Refusing to join in. Staring at lost opportunities and times gone by. Frustration. Boredom.
