Fixed Fire Mercury turns Direct
It’s funny to think that you can appear to be functioning so well, to be so reasonable and engage in daily rituals that enables others to sleep soundly, safe in the knowledge that the Sun will rise once again in the morning, when in fact your hunger and focus, your passion and spirit lie elsewhere. Utterly bored of anything mundane and trivial, barely interested in horizontal conversation, deeply immersed in a world alive with serendipity and prayer (focused thought), it has been increasingly apparent over this past five weeks, that you cannot live a life devoid of magic, drained of inspiration, greying with the banal. Drawing on your listening-imagination, you have truly heard the gentle voice within the heart of your life, a voice that is clearer, deeper and more relevant than that critical voice of anxiety, judgement and disappointment, a voice that creates from knowing and not from analysis or visualisation of some future utopia, a voice that comes from who you are and not from who you can become. That quiet voice may have been lost within the maelstrom of recent family and professional dramas, heightened emotional interactions, and the hunger to discover what ‘home’ truly means, but it is there. A constant beacon of light, shining true and clear, for those whose sight is seen by those who look out from the one and not two…
As you have been truly listened, planting that seed ten days ago, the enchanting veils of illusion that have become the standard bearer have been pierced. Reality as it was, is no longer. Squandering yourself on foods, people and situations that deplete your essence no longer feels apt, relevant or even meaningful as the hooks that bind you to those unkind situations have been released. Today, as clarity of your heart abounds; today, as your mind is filled with insight to move forward; today, as you can see what you have always known in your heart to be true; today, you can ‘feel’ past the pain of regret, you are landing with steady feet on the earth, a safe haven within this mental and heartfelt tumult. Be gentle, my friend, for there were no mistakes, just deep learning; be compassionate towards all that you have experienced, they were just that, experiences; be kind, because those agents are on their own path and may not realise what they have done; be thankful, as the emotional bonds that trap you are released; be jOyfilled as a new energy and passion awakens within you; and just be, as your mind turns out from in.
