Stitch in Trine — Mercury’s Story Arc

Please visit our fantastic new website by clicking this link!

Beginning today, and straight on till Monday, Mercury will stitch the zodiac’s earthy bits with a measure of water as if to weave a story. The tale will be told from the fixed earth of Taurus, where Mercury is making good time. The story’s arc will begin today with Mercury sextile to Pisces’ own Neptune and conclude on Monday with the same aspect to Neptune’s piscine neighbor, Chiron. In between, Mercury will thread a sequential grand earth trine to a Mars long of Virgo and a Pluto even longer of Capricorn. For the next several days, you may even find some of the same elements woven into your own story.

Astrology by Len Wallick

Fire, earth, air and water — the elements of ancient natural science, are integral to the story of western astrology. Indeed, those elements, arranged in a wheel, provided the scaffold upon which the sky’s patterns and cycles were made intelligible and relevant to life on Earth.

As the planet that most closely corresponds to your mind and its matters, Mercury’s annual trip through Taurus is always an occasion to be mindful of earthly life. That is especially so this year. Mercury’s occupation of Taurus, only a day old, is its first visit to an earth sign since January. That’s a long time for an object that usually moves from one elemental energy field to another every few weeks. Now that the innermost planet has finally come to ground, it’s a favorable opportunity to possess its potential.

Possession is fundamental to what Taurus is. When you are aware of your body as yours, or get a sense of what your body needs, and have the occasion to both comprehend and apprehend the world physically, that’s Taurus talking. With Mercury having attained Taurus, it’s a good time to both attain and express a coherent story that begins and ends with what happens when elemental water supports elemental earth.

Mentally, emotionally and visually stimulating, yet so simply bridging a divide. I will be studying this one for a while! Thank you-

    so appropriate. finishing a book about storytellers (the Hakawati) that’s taken me awhile to get through and today was pondering how to release a story very deep in my heart that’s related. then did a card reading this afternoon about earth and water and the outcome was the Bard, reminding me how he appears “to help you stay in tune with All-That-Is. You are music, your story is sung in the heavens”! thank you kind sir, for being the bard that you are. ♥☮♫

    Len, I am glad to be part of system, and part of our Story. In part because of Be’s note yesterday (that the Universe has compassion for us though-we-would-undo-her) I find myself today able to sink into your weaving like a child into a warm blanket at nightfall.

    Add to this Tarot lesson about remembering to look to the dark side for tell-tale hearts (well, it’s about 8 of cups, but you know – a little flexibility) and I am brought into full-story wherein my personal (natal chart) part is surely connected to the bigger picture are we are indeed All One.

    Garbled, but brain is elsewhere. Heart is totally here however!

    Wow, what a story Len! Astrology is a perfect language for storytellers if they have the vision to pull the threads together. This story is simple and straightforward, yet woven ever so cleverly with just one thread so as to be almost invisible. Yet you have picked out that thread and followed it to reveal the continuity of pattern; embellished it with a world-wide and historical perspective; made it one-size-fits-all, yet tailored to each of us. You show-off! The combination of water and earth, not in the sense of chaos but as complimentary elements that provide “mutual support”, and starting with a punch of Neptune creativity allows us to make it our own unique story.

    I had seen these aspects when focusing on Venus and Saturn’s almost-perfect trine and wove a picture story that included the earth trinity in a somewhat supportive role for Venus. You have provided us, through the power of your intuition, a picture story that stands on its own. You prove that astrology is an art and you are an artist. Ever grateful.
