Mercury Returns To It’s Retrograde Point – Libra 16: After A Storm, A Boat Landing Stands In Need Of Reconstruction
Mercury is just now moving onto Libra 16 – the degree that Mercury went retrograde on some weeks ago… Libra 16: AFTER A STORM, A BOAT LANDING STANDS IN NEED OF RECONSTRUCTION –
I’m thinking of Mexico, but I’m also thinking of so many people who feel like they’ve been through the mill, been through storms, and now have to try to pick up the pieces of their lives. We are being asked to ‘reconstruct’ our lives in some fashion – to put things together in a way that perhaps better than they were before ‘the storm’ came through and unearthed everything.
This Symbol shows the need to rebuild parts of our lives that get swept away in difficult situations or “Storms”. Even things built on solid foundations can be swept away by the tidal wave forces of life or the emotions. You may at times feel overpowered and that you need to pick yourself up in some way. You may have to reconstruct some usually secure part of your life, but you are wiser and will in future build something stronger. Finding tools to rebuild can create brand new opportunities on every level. A great use of this degree is to find yourself in the helping role or being a counselor for others who have difficult issues to deal with in their lives.
Temporary loss. Emotional repair. Insurance claims. The fragility of our world in the face of nature. Having ‘nowhere to dock’ one’s emotions. Putting pieces back together again.
The Caution: Making excuses instead of taking responsibility. Emotionally swamped and powerless. Feeling shot to pieces. Letting things wear down to the point of collapse.
