Another Mercury Key Ring Tale

Filed in Horoscopes

Dear Mystic,

It is now 14 years that I discovered your horoscopes when travelling Australia, being a 21-year old backpacker at that time. Since then I read your blog regularly and have been a subscriber for quite a while.

It is hard to summarize my thoughts and feelings, but let’s put it this way: it feels like you are a companion in my life, although we never met personally.

The Mercurial key ring arrived abut ten days ago and it seems to have worked instantly. While it was still on its way to my doorstep (but according to the tracking already in Germany) one of my dearest friends (we know each other for over 20 years now) sent a message saying she’ll visit and invited me for a concert. The day the key ring arrived at my mailbox I received the final chunk of a film funding, that we desperately needed to get the project wrapped. (It was also Jupiter into Scorpio – which I have natally). The first day the key ring was by my side, two friends simultaneously messaged me. One of them living in Belgrade, both of them I haven’t seen or heard of in ages.

Carrying it with me I realize I feel less uncomfortable talking to strangers. I know that might sound weird, but I had a hell of a year. Pluto Square ASC and Saturn Square sun. Brought out family secrets (we’re handling them well and it showed me how wonderful my parents are – life goals.). But also, the mentioned project I was working on involved a horrible state-of-the-art Qi-vampire. A director-dictator, basically, who has mastered the art of narcissism and manipulation to an extend he could probably destroy people completely. He almost destroyed me, and that is a tough job. So, I was in a sort of survival mode and totally lost my trust in others.

Mercury by my side (and after all I’m a Virgo Sun & Venus, so quite mutable), suddenly shifted my energy and I started to watch myself smile and talk again to people I don’t know but who came to sit at the same table in a restaurant or walk the same path in the woods.

Mystic, I want to thank you for creating this wonderful piece of magic. I am looking forward to hold the Wealth Wallet in my hands- which I could order only after the key ring arrived, so I apologize for the two times packing and mailing.

I would love to share more on my Journey through the chasms of a super destructive narcissist’s psyche in order to help others with Qi vampires. But that is a book. Maybe this: Do never lose faith in yourself, when you know you’re a good person (= not stealing from or hurting others, not abusing others – but instead trying to do the right, social, kind thing, which does occasionally involve mistakes, but a good person has a good intention). Anyone who tries to take away your love and dedication to the planet, people, actions aren’t worth to be bothered with. Do not stick around, no matter what. When you realize for the 20th or so time that someone is trying to destroy you and blame you for it: RUN!

In previous posts I called myself nebulous Virgo (Sun-Neptune Square). Doesn’t seem to fit anymore.

I work out regularly, have healthy smoothies for breakfast, a silver candle on a silk patch at my favourite place of my home. Have my substance abuse issues monitored and am sober for at least 4 days a week (compared to none in the last years). Journal next to bed, Sage and Mugwort always at hand for smudging.

Mercury rules my Sun- my Libra Mercury is conjunct DC, Saturn & Pluto, I guess that is a Stellium?
Mars, ruler of my Aries ASC is in Scorpio – could this make me a Plutonic Virgo?

I certainly feel like one.

PS: thought a lot about the 6th house recently (my Moon, Venus & Sun are in the 6th) came across this: Rituals versus Routines, the 6th as a house of alchemy & transformation. What do you think?

Sending love!

Virgo, not so nebulous anymore.

PPS: I thought about taking a photo with the mercurial key ring and my funky dog, but decided to send you an autumn image I took in my garden in the woods a little north of the city I live in.

Dear Not So Nebulous Virgo,

I love this…AND yes the key-ring does seem to have that sort of effect. Also, Mercury is the ruler of the 6th House btw. And okay, there IS a post or two on the Astro School about the 6th house but i love this description.

Your description of the Qi Vampire director or whatever they were is SO apt. I think that you know you are dealing with a person of that ilk – as opposed to a normal person having a stressful time of it or a short-fused person who is essentially still good – when you realize the vast amount of energy they put into ensuring that you are wearing all the blame. Shaking off that aura of shame is the spiritual work of recovery from any sort of abuse. You can cognitively know something was not your fault, that the other person was in the wrong and violating your boundaries/betraying the social contract but still there is that little demon lodged in your energy field.

If  you have not done the Jessica Snow Pluto meditation from the other day, please do it. Whenever i neglect this aspect of my life – the dream-work, meditations like Pluto, energy field clearing, house witching – i save time but i become depleted. And then, when you do it, you feel your power and clarity flooding back in, like cosmic pure vibe that you can suddenly access again, no blocks. And you don’t need a million hour retreat in the Himalayas or a super fancy series of treatments. Not only can you D.I.Y. this stuff, it is more powerful that way.  I am totally doing an Audio Book on House Witching in 2018, i have decided. All this is giving me concepts.

Happy Autumn wandering in the woods with your funky dog and may Mercury bring you ever more fantastic synchronicity!

And another story … key chain and wallet just arrived and in same mail delivery, a bill (hundreds of dollars) with a polite note pencilled onto it saying ‘Invoice paid as your account was in credit.’ LOL needless to say this has never happened before! Have looked and looked at my netbank transactions and can’t work it out. Even if it turns around and i get a ‘haha only joking’ message later, it’s got Mercury all over it.

That is a lovely tale! I just received my key chain, and it is so perfect—the size (smaller than I expected) with a lovely tactile heaviness. However I might need to reprogram my intention with it, because I think I have been anticipating the more “trickster” aspects of Mercury rather than the “protection” factor. Yesterday evening my partner and I went out for a walk in our nearby park. It was the first time I went on my regular route holding the keychain in my hand (which is unusual, I normally have pockets for my keys). On our way back… Read more »

Crazy update on incoming Wealth Wallet and Mercury Key Ring! I got an official letter from the council at 3.30pm this afternoon – which in itself is weird because the post arrives just before 9am and I checked it at 10am, and again 12.30. Anyway paraphrasing again but the gist of it was like “are you sure you want to come to court tomorrow? I mean, you can if you want but why not just pay us and give us a call, yeah? Otherwise, like, see you in court tommy xxx the gov and I was like huh? is that… Read more »

I can’t decide which to order first – key ring or wallet.

Was going with the red wallet for my first house scorp and work/worth issues until I just read mercury is lord of my 6th house- and current major transits

My north node is in the 6th house (in Cancer but the house is ruled by Gemini so I multitask my housework like a fiend haha) and I really like the idea of “rituals versus routines” and “alchemy and transformation”. I think even if I could afford it I prefer to do my own laundry, clean my toilets, do my dishes, etc.. My grandmother was a cleaner in the 50’s to support herself and I think there’s a lot of dignity in that daily work that keeps households running and people healthy, to me it’s not lowly work, I feel… Read more »

I agree about cleaning being zen and seriously magical After writing the thank you note on this site and before checking the mail today I opened the front of the washing machine and cleaned the filter which I discovered was all gunked up with stodgy fabric softener and congealed once was washing liquid turned jelly goo is now solidified soap stone stuff. Since I moved in here that machine has never cleaned my clothes but actually made them look like they’ve been used by a munchkin tribe of bicycle mechanics who operate their invisible munchkin bike repair shop from inside… Read more »

My keyring should be arriving any day now. Cannot wait! Mercury is my chart ruler. I have Gemini rising, and a whopping stellium in Virgo – Jupiter, Mars as well as Saturn! I’m also a writer by profession, and am currently trying to finish my novel.This should help me. I will report back with testimonial!

Yasssssssssssss

Am also feeling a bit battered, at loss for words – Jupiter in Scorpio has done amazing things for my drive but it also has left me feeling adrift. My whole landscape is changing + Toro doesn’t do change well. Hoping my Mercury key ring will bring back my focus + intention.

TBH I avoided the Pluto meditation (too much to do, etc) but today I’m going to do it. Will do cow back with additional thoughts.

oh wow, I just read the post above wasn’t sure I’d have the luxury of doing so before.. some things really hit home this will sound bonkers AF but hey the last time I saw my therapist – every time feels like it could be the last although we have worked out a ridiculously low fee for her time, she doesn’t want to just drop me and I can’t afford food let alone therapy so.. I was describing my experience of being alive, how it feels to be me, just sitting in a chair, being seen and or heard, how… Read more »

Hey people So I got an email this morning from Mystic which unusually for this stage of my life, I was able to read. So bear with me please because I’m going to paraphrase horribly now since I daren’t risk losing my current internet connection through the pedantic vanity that copying and pasting would risk. I need to say this. Thank you. Thank you Starbabies for gifting me a Wealth Wallet. I am still wiping tears and reeling, for lots of reasons. Thank you Mystic for gifting me a Mercury Key Ring. And for posting it, and for emailing me… Read more »

Isn’t it amazing what a difference punctuation makes? The entire meaning of the alphabet coleslaw above seems lost without it but dear PIABes, you are no doubt familiar with my pseudo Joyce-esque by now. Maintaining a coherent train of thought might compensate for the structural dearth but alas, even that escapes me. The email went something like “Dear Invicta, Starbabies has gifted you a Wealth Wallet ” and then a beautiful quote about Fortune favouring the bold with the word Invicta in it. Yes, it made me tear up. Then she continued “something something remind Invicta who she is 🙂… Read more »

You are very welcome, Invicta 🙂 I also want to say thank you, to Mystic. For not only arranging to send it to Invicta on my behalf, adding another gift onto the bundle whilst stopping to ask me if I had a note for her and handling shipping of it all – but really… offering such an amazing item as a contest prize in the first place. None of this would have been possible without the first ripple of kindness from MM. I was the second ripple and it made sense to let the wave of kindness and generosity prevail… Read more »

Hi Mystic,

A bit of a side question, but speaking of magical talismans, is the vegan version of the wealth wallet still a plan?

Thanks!

My sixth house is Sag with Jupiter at the first degree. I’m not sure I can tell the difference between ritual and routine but my life has been full of both. I think turning routines into rituals is a great way to deal with 6th house stuff. Good to hear from you Nebulous x it’s so good to know just a little more about the people we chat with here. 14 years ! I think I’ve been around here for a similar time. Considering the throw away nature of our society and all the options we have to spend our… Read more »

I guess for me routine is a more habitual automatic unconscious way of being and doing stuff while ritual implies awareness and therefore opportunity to draw in extra-sensory extra-dimensional energies to the situation. It also carries for me a sense of awe in acknowledging, appreciating and inviting in what is additional to my usual (routine) way of being. Gratitude is another key (pun) component to ritual.

My car keys happened to go missing a bit ago tonight although I knew they were in the car somewhere (opened car holding too many grocery bags) I couldn’t find them. I was cold and tired and anxiety tearing my car apart about to go bananas when I remembered to hold onto the Merc key ring and clear my mind. I got message check CSA bag and lo and behold there they were underneath 10 lbs of squash and potatoes ;). Thank you everyday magic!!!!

I love that trick, when you lose something– clear your mind and call to it– be still and let it respond– it usually does! Also great for mushroom hunting. Chanterelles, in particular, love to be found!

Technical Question for @mystic (or anyone who knows this): if I buy the Mercurial Ring around early December (when Mercury Retro will be on) would this be protective or would this shake mercurial things up?
Also: Jup is Scorp is in my 3rd house for a year, so I sense that this ring would be of great help.

I am Gemini with Virgo rising, so Mercury/Mercurial vibe is kinda big deal for me.

I really love that image! I am kind of obsessed with micro nature images at the moment and this ticks all the boxes.

Congrats Virgo… so many breakthroughs and insights there.

I really like the conceptual transformation into rituals from routines, as a 6th house Sadge Neptune-r, it feels a lot better this way. If 6th house activity gets too dry and mundane / empty I just abandon it, so yes. What are these little flowers / fruit? is this hops? I’m seeing it everywhere at the moment. It’s very pretty. Much needed reminder on setting aside attitudes or circles that encourage a disconnection from self and the wider world. Misanthropy can be fun and entertaining, but as a lifestyle it’s spiritually corrosive, from where I stand at least. Mind you… Read more »

Rituals vs routines. Oh, I so needed that piece of wisdom today. Struggling to create my own peace at the moment and am feeling constantly adrift and battered by the stormy seas of my teen age son’s emotional problems. Time for some more rituals for me.

Tina

This does not relate to key rings or wealth wallets, but…… Don’t worry too much about your teenage son. If he’s a good kid, he’ll be alright. Monitor who he hangs out with and encourage him to hang on to the ones that are good to him and discourage the ones who don’t treat him so well, although they are probably teaching him resilience and character traits he knows he does not want to emulate.

I too am a recent recipient of a magical/pragmatic mercurial keyring. I appreciate the reminder that Mercury rules not only Virgo (yes and Gemini) but also the 6th house of everyday work. I grew up in the era when housewives (ie mothers) were fanatical about the cleanliness of their households, down to freakish perfection. I have Saturn (28 degrees) and south node (26 degrees) Virgo in the 7th house. And Pluto 19 Leo in 6th square Sun/Venus/Mercury 14 to 19 Scorpio in 9th. Back then in the days of the British Empire in colonial Africa (yes my Pluto in Leo… Read more »
