Source: New Moon & Mercury in Capricorn
Good morning everyone 🙂
I wanted to take some time and write to you this morning about Mercury Rx and the upcoming certification of the electoral college votes for President. This post is a little long, but I hope you’ll read through 🙂
I’m not sure that a Mercury Retrograde is what we really needed on the day of the certification – especially with the contentiousness that has characterized this election. But here we go into an interesting time …
Mercury is retrograde in Capricorn – a sign of form, structure, karma, business, the military and government. Ordinarily I would predict that this was going to indicate a reversal of some kind – in this case a reversal in the Electoral College since that is something of note on the same day as the retrograde.
But, it isn’t as easy as all that because Pluto is also in Capricorn, and he is lending extraordinary power at the moment to Government & Big Business (ie Corporations). There is a reason why Pluto is the root of the word Plutocracy which is what many people say that the United States is rather than a Democracy. What is a Plutocracy?
* government by the wealthy.
* a country or society governed by the wealthy.
* an elite or ruling class of people whose power derives from their wealth.
And, who did we invite into the White House? A Plutocrat disguised as a reformer of government! We can tell by the people he is electing to be in his Cabinet, that reform is not really on his mind. Instead of Politicians (bad enough, right?) we get Plutocrats & Military Generals! It’s incredible that this is happening, but all is well and is Divine right order.
Let’s say that the election is certified on Monday, December 19th as it is supposed to (even with a retrograde in place). What can we expect from the stars? Well, not long after the election is certified, Jupiter & Uranus will meet in an opposition across the Love & War axis (Libra & Aries)…in fact this occurs on December 26. Revolution is in the air, and with these two planets meeting in opposition two more times in 2017, the story is far from over! What we have is a Cosmic Wake Up Call!!
We can almost see the backlash forming as there are investigations into the Russian hacking problem, which seems to suggest that Trump himself had knowledge that the Russians were interfering with the election – a big, bad Karmic No-No! There are videos out now of delegates of the Electoral College pushing for a change in votes. People are noticing that Trump, the businessman, is having trouble keeping clear just what his priorities are as President with many conflicts of interest being pointed out everyday!
My guess is that as Pluto furthers its journey into Capricorn what we will see is that “We the People” take back our power and demand a return to our original Values of a Democracy – Equality, Life, Liberty & the Pursuit of Happiness. But Revolutions take time… take energy on the part of the participants…take WILL … and in no small measure LOVE of our commonality, our Unity as a country, and as citizens of the World.
Pluto remains in Capricorn until 2023 – I know that sounds like it’s a long way off, but like I said, Revolutions take time! We are already seeing the handwriting on the wall – and what is transforming you might say, is the return of the vision of what this country was all about (and even, the return of a Golden Age).
By the time Pluto enters Aquarius in 2023 we will have the heart, the will and the power to turn this country great again – but not on the old, outdated values that we are trying to enact right now. Instead, we will be pursuing enlightened ways of being in the World, demanding equality and support of our weakest links (whoever they may be at that time), and returning our lives to a more caring, loving, humanitarian energy enjoyed by all. The years 2023-2043 will be extraordinary!
I’m not done yet 🙂 Let’s go back to Mercury Rx for a second and what it looks like from a Human Design perspective.
Mercury, as of today, sits at Gate 38 – the Fighter. Perfect, yes? The energy of fight in this gate is all about the struggle for purpose, meaning and knowing what is worth fighting for.
On the day Mercury Retrogrades, just for one brief moment, Mercury gets back to Gate 54 – Ambition, which is where Pluto is sitting right now. Gate 54 is a Gate that is leading us into Enlightenment via the Big Dream, Hopes and Aspirations that we have as a PEOPLE. It’s almost as if Mercury is saying to us, “don’t despair, we ARE moving in the right direction even if it doesn’t look like it yet.”
Mercury will return to Gate 54 on January 28, 2017. At that time Pluto and he will meet up with Pluto at the 4th line of Gate 54 which signifies this, “Illuminating: Acknowledging that Existence has Her plans for us.” (from the book, “The Book of Lines” by Chetan Parkyn).
All is not lost, but as I told my Cosmology & the Tree of Life class last weekend, “it is now up to us to create love, unity, oneness.” It is only by consciously choosing to resonate with these frequencies that we will be headed for a Golden Age of Peace, Love, and Harmony.
Let’s get that party started 🙂
