Mercury On The Sightseeing Bus (And Retrograde): Scorpio 1
Mercury is retrograde on Scorpio 1: A SIGHT-SEEING BUS FILLED WITH TOURISTS
Mercury here can add to the feeling of the Symbol for the Sun today (The Retired Sea Captain – see post below) – it can have us taking time out of our lives to observe what’s going on – to see what we may have been missing, to take a journey into new parts of ourselves, to see what souvenirs we have collected and still have from the past.
This Symbol speaks of taking in the world through the senses; seeing, tasting, observing and getting in amongst what’s going on. There can be a feeling of knowing one’s destination, having a map or guide, but not always knowing what it is truly like. One feels guided and cocooned on the journey, but there can be feelings of being an observer and, sometimes, of being observed. You could, at times, feel like you’re separate from what’s going on. Pictures and souvenirs of your life (your journey) are likely to be collected. The trick with this degree is to throw your self into life, reach out for all sorts of adventures and, most of all, enjoy the journey!
Observing life. Foreign territories. Seeing how other people live. Timing, being on time. Watching from afar. The untried and untrodden or the same old road. UFOS and aliens.
The Caution: Feelings of naivety and gullibility. Feeling like an alien even in familiar surroundings. Getting out of one’s depth. Separation anxiety. Inability to concentrate.
