The Owl is the symbol of the relatively corporate and definitely urbane Wisdom Goddess Pallas Athene aka Minerva AND also Bitch Goddess Lilith...Nocturnal, a loner and with ludicrously strong far sight. When you dream of owls look for the message, the unseen wisdom. Along with the Raven, the Owl is probably the most popular ‘bird familiar’ in witch history AND anyway, Pallas Athene, the asteroid is currently in Leo at the same point of the Saturn-Neptune opposition in 2006/2007. In amongst all the Zap Zone/Eclipse Season schizz, anticipate an “Owl” of Wisdom re that little era.
Also, the Weekly Horoscopes from Oct 12 are now posted; it is ALL intensifying but we can still be fabulous and instigate Awesome on a daily basis, i firmly feel that. More on this (in list form!) in the Daily Mystic email for Thurs.
AND…another key dilemma du jour that is, like, running in the background of my mind when i think about ANY of the signs at the moment:
You know how in Gothic Horror stories – or any horror really – there is often a theme of NOT going back into the haunted house, ideally. Not to get your sunglasses. Not for the Necronomicon or kill one last Zombie, whatever. You should just run. But in the movie/book, there is always the insatiable desire to go back into the stupid haunted house/the ghost well in the swamp/the abandoned lunatic village where the original spell took place…
Mercury in Scorpio IS that desire, big-time. You want to lurch back to the scene of some original psych crime. Or to the land/relationship where you imagine something important took place that you must now understand. BUT the Zap Zone is all about survival and evolution.
Healthy Animals who escape being prey apparently do not sit around analyzing how and why they escaped, they don’t have guilt – they lie in the sun and stretch. Or they eat.
Acknowledge the urge to go back into the Haunted House but don’t DO it – that’s what good therapy, hardcore cardio, hot yoga, dream diaries, orgasms, banquets with easy company and cathartic gardening is for, don’t you think? Plus successful evolution is adaptation – not backwards gazing, even if the nostalgia is nuanced.
