Mercury On The Striking Workers Degree: Gemini 8
Well, here it is again…. the going on strike energies are still with us! Mercury is on Gemini 8: AROUSED STRIKERS SURROUND A FACTORY
This last month has seen a massive amount of this type of energy as the Sun, Mars and Mercury traversed some of the ‘going on strike’ degrees in Gemini (it’s quite extraordinary how many of them there are). It’s terrible and curious how we had so much emphasis on Gemini 12: A Black Slave Girl Demands Her Rights Of Her Mistress and there was the massacre in South Carolina – and the issue of race in amongst the goings on. Soon, we will have Mercury go over that degree again. It has been around quite a lot…
This Symbol shows the need, or the desire, to be able to call a halt or go on strike when one feels hard done by or taken advantage of. You may need to stand up for your rights, or perhaps those of others. You have some support from compatriots, but you can become separated from the general situation and may have difficulty finding creative solutions that satisfy everyone. It may help to consider what negotiations can be made to bring things back to a feeling of equilibrium. By withdrawing your energies for a while you will see how important you really are in the situation.
Bargaining to find more equitable solutions. Demanding better rights and conditions. Comradeship. Taking action or refusing to act. Knowing when to say no. Sweat shops.
The Caution: Being obsessed with what is wanted. Refusing compromises. Protesting about everything. Not noticing one’s rewards. Being left out in the cold. Greedy behavior.
