Mercury On Libra 8: The Blazing Fireplace In The Deserted Home Degree

 In Lunar Stories by Lynda Hill


This can be a rather lonely Symbol, one that asks that we provide the encouragement and joy that many receive from  family and friends for ourselves, especially if we are living alone and not feeling supported by the external world. It may be up to you to provide warmth and shelter for others who aren’t feeling very included or appreciated.

It is Father’s Day in Australia and those without fathers, or whose fathers have passed on, may be feeling a bit sad. Perhaps lighting a candle will bring a sense of light and joy into your home.

At times during your life you will need to remember that even in times of real loneliness, when you feel separated from your ‘center’, there is a constant, unseen, sustaining energy always ready to welcome you home: whether it be the fire of your own spiritual center, the warmth and familiarity of family and kin, or a knowing that one is sustained by humanity at large. You may need this reassurance yourself or you may be the one to help others in their hour of need.

Security and comfort left behind. Wood for burning and heating. Gas and electricity. Holiday homes. Homes rarely visited or inhabited. Homes filled with love, if not people or possessions. The warmth of the heart or the hearth. Fertility issues. Sweat lodges.

The Caution: Isolation, separation, abandonment or bitterness. Sabotage by or of loved ones. Being forced out, possibly for social reasons. Divorce. Latchkey children.
