According to astrologer (and colleague) Julie Simmons, in her pst about the upcoming August 2 2011 Mercury retrograde, this present position of the retrograde ‘brings out a theme that has been strong since the eclipse of the last winter solstice – the end of the end and not quite the beginning of the beginning. Chaos, change and revolution.’
I have been noticing examples of the pattern everywhere lately ..
– political parties like the Canadian federal Liberals or the USA Republicans (I know – in the same sentence) are kinda over as we have know them. Their best days seem to be gone and fresh new ideas of governance relevant to the people have not quite arrived. I am reminded of the recent New York Times columnist David Brooks (the Mother of All No Brainers) writing about his own disappointment in the Republicans calling the party no longer normal. Here are some other examples:
– the World News publication is over, really over but saying sorry and exposing the truth has not launched a hoped for rebirth.
– on a different scale, in my apartment block ignoring a crumbling balcony situation has given way to a last minute spring time decision made during the last Mercury retrograde to have them repaired on two large buildings. The construction disrupting many households including mine, won’t be over until October. The result will be safety.
– Our city of Toronto is gutting long held ‘have to have’ decisions such as the Jarvis street bike lane (gone next year) 50,000 city jobs gone, privatization of many services, planned graffiti programs eliminated… has the revolution gone too far? We are likely not arrived at the true new beginning enough to know.
For this August 2, examine the chaos, change and revolution in your life. What do you resonate with and what ‘entrenched thought patterns’ do you need to let go of? What plans will you make to manage the your own inner revolution?
