Mercury Retro And Mars On Gemini 11: Newly Open Lands – The Pioneering Degree
Mercury, which is retrograde, and Mars, are meeting up on Gemini 11. This can bring about a big impetus to push forward, to argue, to have one’s influence, thoughts or ideas felt, or to push through barriers. The Sabian Symbol is a fabulous one, although it can bring up issues that need to be dealt with… especially as Mercury and Mars are together on the same degree (and Mercury is retrograde).
It helps to remember that Mercury and Mars are squaring Neptune on Pisces 10: An Aviator In The Clouds – is what you plan to do, what you want to do, what you dream of doing, based on reality? Solidly grounded or flights of fancy? Whatever, the doors of perception can swing open now, even if you are not quite ready yet to actually be taking off. This could be more about dreaming and planning than doing – but there is a world of possibility out there, so who knows?
Mercury and Mars are getting together on Gemini 11: NEWLY OPENED LANDS OFFER THE PIONEER NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR EXPERIENCE
This Symbol shows that there’s a need to break away from old familiar ground and move out into unknown territory. Fear is often the greatest barrier to moving forward, but sometimes the familiar must be left behind for new possibilities. Taking opportunities to move on to new realms of being can lead to a whole new experiences or indeed a whole new life. You have to be prepared to leave the old behind and to step out into new experiences with an open heartand an open mind. You could be starting from scratch with little to support you, but you could find depths of experience you never thought possible.
Pioneering attitudes bringing their own rewards. Going off the beaten track. Coming up with new ideas. New spiritual realizations opening vistas of experience. Adjusting to new places.
The Caution: Clinging to the old and familiar. Restricting growth and change. Not taking new opportunities or moving on. Claiming what’s rightfully someone else’s. Running off.
