Mercury On Virgo 25 Yesterday: A Flag At Half Mast

 In Lunar Stories by Lynda Hill

Sailors Lowering An Old Flag and Raising a New OneJust sitting here contemplating how my dear aunty died yesterday. She was my sister Jo and my only auntie. She died too soon, but the peace of death takes us when it will. Curiously, Mercury was on Virgo 25: A FLAG AT HALF MAST IN FRONT OF A PUBLIC BUILDING

Is there something that you are mourning? Is there something you perhaps should be letting go of? Is there something or someone who has been taken from you lately? Perhaps by lowering the ‘flag’ and acknowledging the loss,you can continue to move forward.

This pictures a situation of carrying a task through to completion. It is a time for recognition of what’s been accomplished. A life may have been lost, or it may be about a project that is finished. This can produce a feeling like something has passed from your life. Grieving may be a necessary part of the process, but it is also a time for assimilating what it took to get you where you are, and for moving forward into the future.

Public tribute and recognition. The desire to leave a legacy to society. Signs for all to see.

The Caution: Feeling an obligation to carry on without taking time to mourn loss. Denying yourself a life in order to fulfill some social function.
