Mercury, Venus And Jupiter Lining Up For A New Dawn?
Mercury is on Leo 27 – After the ‘rainbow’ comes DAYBREAK – THE LUMINESCENCE OF DAWN IN THE EASTERN SKY
Prepare for go-stop, stop-go, oh heck, which way to go…expansion or contraction? With Mercury preparing to meet up with Venus and Jupiter of the next few days, with both of those planets AND Mercury squaring Saturn, we can find ourselves staring at a brick wall right when we want to be expanding our horizons, stepping up and out, taking on the world, making plans and dreaming of big, beautiful things.
But, it’s not at all bad. Saturn just wants his pound of flesh. And, with Saturn on Scorpio 29: AN INDIAN WOMAN PLEADING TO THE CHIEF FOR THE LIVES OF HER CHILDREN, we are being asked to look after youngsters, our inner child, animals, living beings in general, the planet, etc. We are in a place of wanting to (or needing to) stand up for ourselves or others, especially those who feel that they are not in a safe and secure place. Perhaps it’s because others don’t have a voice to speak up for themselves. We ‘plead to the chief’ when we appeal to higher powers to intercede and bring about release, mercy and relief from judgement.
With Saturn here, though, we may feel tired and weary of running the same old stories. We can become weary of complaining, of hearing our own complaints, or the complaints of others.
Saturn is no doubt going to reward us if we take life by the horns and decide to get organised. To remove the clutter from all parts of our lives. To clean out all of our closets of the outworn, outdated or useless time and space-wasting stuff. What stories do you continually tell yourself?
So, here is Mercury for the next several hours – THE LUMINESCENCE OF DAWN IN THE EASTERN SKY.
This Symbol implies the gradual feeling that darkness is dispersing and that a new day is right on the horizon. Often in your life, you may feel there is a chance for new beginnings. Things along the way have been sacrificed and there may be a certain emptiness, but you will see the light of day and move forward again. This Symbol speaks of transition times of letting go of operating in the dark and moving into a new day with new plans and fresh solutions. New ideas, new opportunities, new perspectives and new realizations are emerging. Getting up at dawn and watching the Sun rise can be a wonderful meditation for this degree.
Gradual realizations of opportunities. New cycles beginning. Leaving the past behind. Dawn meditations. Yoga. Scenes of awe and amazement. Light from the east. Trusting in life.
The Caution: Being fearful and distrusting of new experiences or situations OR thinking that everything will be OK ‘tomorrow’, but not today. Feeling asleep and not waking up.usting of new experiences or situations OR thinking that everything will be OK ‘tomorrow’, but not today. Feeling asleep and not waking up.
It’s extraordinary that the Sabian Symbols came through Elsie Wheeler ‘randomly’ i.e. in a double blind experiment. It is amazing that they were not linearly birthed… and yet The Dawn degree of Leo 27 is followed by Leo 28: MANY LITTLE BIRDS ON A LIMB OF A LARGE TREE – these the voices of the many… it is so representative of social media…. Mercury will be on the ‘birds’ degree next…
Meanwhile, we have to distinguish between what is possible and what is desirable and vice versa. By getting our priorities right, we can find the equitable balance that we seek. Hopefully!
