Mercury’s two-week sprint through fiery, fixed Leo begins today. Sunday, that rapid transit will gather steam with Mercury’s brief square to Saturn’s slog through watery, fixed Scorpio. In context, the square from Mercury to Saturn will correspond to evidence of your role in the cosmos as infinity’s engine. The only question is whether you are ready to see that.
If all that seems a bit far-fetched, please consider that you may have underestimated yourself. Please consider that you are neither powerless or insignificant.
If you have underestimated yourself as powerless or insignificant, please don’t beat yourself up. Doing so will just send you back into the same loop. Take solace in the fact that it’s a common condition.
It’s common for nearly every human to be superbly conditioned to think of one’s self as unworthy, inadequate and pathetic without the paternal guiding hand of authority. It’s also common for each of us to reinforce that conditioning by giving our power away to that hand.
What is common, however, is not necessarily true. In this case, the common condition hides the truth. It’s no accident that the conditioning loop exists, but it is not necessary for you to keep falling back into it. Instead, try seeing the loop as a thought structure limiting what you think you are, and what you think you can do.
Saturn is all about structure. Mercury is all about thought. Working their square for the best outcome means acting to employ the fixed quality of their respective signs and fix new thought structures into place. First, by observing how your every action has always had a consequence regardless. After grasping that tidbit, the next step is taking all further actions, no matter how small, so as to bring about the effects you want and intend to have.
It takes some practice. You have to stop before acting to evaluate probable consequences. You need to decide if the probable outcome conforms to your intent and desire. Do that enough and your life will eventually have a structure of your own choosing, originating from a thought structure that makes it possible, and that is not all. That is only the beginning.
Beyond a life with a structure of your own choosing, your actions contribute to the structure of all life on the Earth, and conceivably the structure of the universe. In order to grasp that, please consider the Sun.
Around the Sun’s gravity well, a huge number of objects orbit. The consequences of those orbital cycles is a gradual progress toward equilibrium. That’s it. No thought, no intent, no desire, no choices, no conscious acts initiating cause and effect.
The Sun also pumps out a huge amount of energy, most of which dissipates into the continuum of space-time (which is also a process towards equilibrium), but some of it is absorbed by the Earth.
The solar energy absorbed by the Earth powers other cycles. The water cycle, the seasonal cycles and the life cycles of most beings according to their nature, all have something in common with the cycles in the sky. All of them continually seek equilibrium, each in synchrony with the other, for as long as the Sun lasts.
Note that, please. The Sun is finite, as are the cycles its gravity and energy give rise to. While you are in the process of restructuring your thoughts to transcend the limits of what you think you are, and what you think you can do, please consider extending that protocol to humanity.
Almost alone among beings, humans have demonstrated a capacity to disrupt the equilibrium. Yet, here we are, demonstrably part of both the Earth, and the universe. Our every physical atom arises from the cycles we are so good at messing with, which indicates how we may be underestimating our kind, just as you may have underestimated yourself.
Please consider that our capacity to make a mess may be the indicator of a distinguishing proficiency. Just as the messes made by children at play represent the emerging talents of the adults they will become. Just as the messes you have made in structuring your life imply the ability to turn things around after first turning your perception of yourself around.
Please consider that humanity may be on the verge of realizing that our knack for disrupting the cycles from which we originate and upon which we depend, does not make us unworthy, inadequate or pathetic. Please consider us as children on the threshold of growing up to realize that our predilection for disruption may mature into a talent for transcending the finite that all cycles inherently and ultimately are.
Mercury’s impending square to Saturn is bringing you a brief glimpse of your true power and significance, and empowering you to act on that glimpse by fixing into place a new structure for your life. By the same token, the aspect is simultaneously operating on another level. That would be a level in common, revealing rather than concealing, the truth for all of us at once.
In order to see that truth, we must first see ourselves differently. If there is anything to astrology, something that happens to you this weekend will serve to do just that for you if you are prepared to see it through a restructured perception.
A restructured perception will, in turn, get you started towards both re-creating the structure of your life and contributing to a restructured understanding, a common understanding, of the reason human beings are here. We are not here by accident. We have a special job to grow into. The universe has a purpose for humanity. We are here to transcend all that which must ultimately end, and serve as infinity’s engine. Please keep your eyes, your mind, and your heart open in the days to come, and you will surely see.
