Mercury Stationary, Turning Direct

In traditional astrology, Mercury is our mind. It is how we think, remember, and communicate. It is also our reality construct: what we believe reality to be. In Shamanic Egyptian Astrology, Mercury is allied with Thoth, the creator of language, writing, and time. Thoth created this dimensional reality. As we move through this time of rapid change, Thoth is busily whipping up a different dimensional reality for us to experience.


This Mercury Retrograde period began on April 1 and has been in Aries. Mercury has retrograded back through a conjunction to Eris (Goddess of Strife and Discord), Chiron (The Wounded Healer), and The North Node (Dharma). Over the last three weeks the Sun (Ego) and Venus (Values) have moved through conjunctions to these astrological elements.


Aries is the first sign of the Zodiac. In Egyptian myth, Aries is allied with Kephera, the Sun at the dawn of a new day. Something new – a new reality construct - is coming into form.


Central to our recent experience has been an increasing awareness of a shattering of consensus reality. We’ve all had the shocking experience of realizing that people we thought shared our perspective do not see the same things we see. This has happened so many times that many of us no longer assume that we are all on the same page. Simply put, we are not operating in the same reality.


This Mercury retrograde period has helped us to see the ways our personal and collective Warriors (Aries is the sign of the Warrior) are responding to this shattering of our shared reality. Many are questioning, where do we go from here? If we do not experience reality the same, how can we move on without doing damage to each other and ourselves? These are good questions to ask.


Mercury/Thoth turns direct on April 25 at 8:54 am EDT.
