Mercury Retrograde and Venus And Jupiter And The Super Galactic Center
Mercury and Venus are conjunct at the moment on Virgo 30: HAVING AN URGENT TASK TO COMPLETE, A MAN DOESN’T LOOK TO ANY DISTRACTIONS, and, Mercury is stationing retrograde which means that it’s sitting on this degree for a few days while making the transition to being retrograde. This intensifies this ‘distraction or not’ theme very strongly.
The following is my interpretation of this degree from my book The Sabian Oracle: 360 Degrees Of Wisdom –
I love deadlines. I especially like the whooshing sound they make as they go flying by. Douglas Adams
While we are postponing, life speeds by. Seneca
For all sad words of tongue and pen, the saddest are those ‘it might have been. John Greenleaf Whittier
It is not enough to be industrious; so are the ants. What are you industrious about? Henry David Thoreau
The person who says it can’t be done should not interrupt the person doing it. Chinese Proverb
Until you value yourself, you will not value your time. Until you value your time, you will not do anything with it. M. Scott Peck
There is not any memory with less satisfaction than the memory of some temptation we resisted. James Branch Cabell
Commentary: ‘Having an Urgent Task to Complete, a Man Doesn’t Look To Any Distractions’ shows the need for an undisturbed focus in application and not allowing ‘Distractions’ to interfere. The person pictured here has got something that needs to be done and completed, and he doesn’t let anything ‘Distract’ him from it.
Oracle: There is a need to pay complete attention to the job at hand as this is necessary now in order to get things done. Pushing through with the work and avoiding temptations regardless of what’s going on around you will hasten the rewards of completion. However, sometimes friends, lovers, partners or children require our assistance, and we have to drop what we’d rather be doing. If these intrusions happen time and time again, we can feel loaded down with responsibilities that aren’t ours, and can be weighed down by not getting on with what we really need to achieve. We must remember to put time and effort into what we want to accomplish, and not allow ourselves to be led astray. Alternatively, you may be allowing these intrusions as a way to solve boredom, or as an excuse to procrastinate. If this describes your situation, ask yourself how much you actually want what you are trying to do. An exercise to improve clarity is keeping a goals list. Write down everything you need to do, no matter how small, in order to realize your objectives. Every time you tick something off, you are that much closer to getting them done. On the other hand, one can become bogged down in the attempt to complete something and actually accomplish nothing. If this is so, a closer focus on what it is that you really need to achieve would help.
Keywords: Staying true to yourself and remaining on the path or on the job. One-pointedness. Meditation. Blocking out the external world in order to achieve complete focus on a situation or state of mind. Religious experiences. Maintaining one direction. Seeing something through to completion. Taking the phone off the hook. One-eyed behavior.
The Caution: Paying attention to outside influences. Letting the slightest excuse take one away from what needs to be done. Rigidity of thought or action leading to missed creative or intuitive opportunities. Obsession. Indulgences. Workaholics. Addictions and destructive behavior. Superficial distractions.
Venus will very soon, within hours of me posting this, move into Libra and traverse the Super Galactic Center (SGC). Jupiter will also follow on, highlighting the ‘distraction’ degree of Virgo 30 and then moving into Libra and crossing the SGC.
The SGC is a potent and amazing place in the zodiac that is said to contain (as with the Galactic Center of late Sagittarius) a connection with ‘The Mind Of God’… we can use the Law Of Attraction to great effect during these coming weeks, particularly with Jupiter going over the first 5-6 degrees of Libra. Further, in about a month or so, we have Mercury then going into Libra and bringing the SGC, yet again, to our attention.
The Sabian Symbols for the first 5-6 degrees of Libra are astounding in this regard. I will do an audio on this in the next few days. I just hope I don’t get distracted ! 🙂
