The Sun And Mercury On The Third Wing On A Butterfly Degree: Libra 24

 In Lunar Stories by Lynda Hill

Butterfly framedThe Sun and Mercury are conjunct (together on the same degree) on Libra 24: A THIRD WING ON THE LEFT SIDE OF A BUTTERFLY

Keeping things in perspective can be interesting with this degree – we may find ourselves feeling a bit lopsided, disjointed or all over the place. And, with Mercury retrograding over this degree, we may feel like we’ve been in this territory before. How to regain balance and perspective?

This Symbol can show imbalances of many kinds, be they physical, mental, spiritual or emotional. Understanding and accepting fragility and differences in our self and others can give greater empathy for those who have difficulty operating efficiently in the world. When the transformation into full potential occurs, it is a wonderful thing, however, you may feel that you are unnaturally developed or somehow lopsided in the emotive, intuitive realms. Instinct may swamp logic or logic may take from your instinct or intuition. Physically, you could find that one side of your body works more efficiently or smoothly than the other. It helps to try to regain balance and equilibrium in your life. More can be achieved by finding that still space in the middle.

Creative overbalance. Oddities. Beautiful imperfections. One side being more perfect than the other. Being light and flippant. Savants. Bodily impairments and handicaps.

The Caution: Unrealistic reliance on being different. Obsession with strange things. Flapping around and not getting anywhere. Restlessness, nervousness. Lopsidedness.

    With no surprise it is, I find this Symbol helping me to see my predicament perfectly around this time. With the retrograde in place and a ‘here we go again’ on the merry-go-round – I am shaking my head, and trying to find the balance (beyond tearing my hair out from [i]both[/i] sides of my head) while trying not to rock the boat (obviously the one that washed up on shore during the past week for reconstruction) – *throws hands in air.

    Past Recent Predicament: Restructuring and balancing a contract to suit a tenant & maintenance person.
    Now Predicament: Why bother – tenant carries on as before – no heed to the new conditions agreed to.

    To begin to find an approach to the situation, let a lone a solution, I asked How is Wisdom applied without Judgement over-ruling and over balancing the situation on the Symbol?
    I looked at this portion: [i]”This Symbol can show imbalances of many kinds, be they physical, mental, spiritual or emotional. Understanding and accepting fragility and differences in our self and others can give greater empathy for those who have difficulty operating efficiently in the world.[/i]
    My wisdom voice is going ‘can you see that working balance?’ – while my judgement voice is running around the house screaming with a paper bag over its head.

    Maybe I’ll just focus on the [i]Beautiful imperfections[/i] while sitting in the corner pouting, until I ‘get it’.
