Mercury On The Removing The Veil Degree: Virgo 12
Mercury is on Virgo 12: A BRIDE WITH HER VEIL SNATCHED AWAY
This can be quite a mystical, mysterious and revealing degree Symbol. This is the Sun degree of Elsie Wheeler, the spiritualist medium who gave birth to the Sabian Symbols. She never married, but she had a marriage of sorts to spirit. It has been said in the Gospels that one has to become a ‘bride’ to ‘remove one’s veil’ in order to enter into a relationship with god. Whether that is true or not is not the point – we do have to remove our ‘veils’ in order to see more clearly, to pierce the veil we can remove the greased lens that we may see the world through. By removing our ‘veils’, we can have a much closer, more authentic, relationship with ourselves as well as others.
A BRIDE WITH HER VEIL SNATCHED AWAY – Virgo 12: There may be a feeling that somebody is not quite ready to give themselves completely to the situation, but they do not really have much choice. If one doesn’t go willingly, then they’ll be pushed forward – finally taking the plunge. There can be an unveiling of one’s true identity. Proving oneself with no excuses and no presence.
Time to break down any walls that are keeping people from relating on a deep level.
Secret motives revealed. Unveiling and exposing. The desire for privacy.
The Caution: Stubbornly refusing to accept new directions in life. Failing to commit. Not coming up with what one promised.
