Mercury Conjunct Chiron at the end of the Zodiac is a real piece of work. The Memo? Some things have gone, and they’re not coming back. At least not in this world. People too. Some situations cannot be fixed without poignant feeling, no matter how intelligent or resourceful you are.
Scar tissue – bound up and thickened in protection – is psychic as well as physical. It is the sort of week where you can soften and mobilize it but not without pain.
“Melancholy is sadness that has taken on lightness.”
― Italo Calvino

May 2010 until May 2011 is currently the It-Zone being memory-triggered – that was when Uranus and Chiron changed signs, just as they are getting ready to do now.

Remorse is the wise, more classy cousin of Guilt, which is generally a blowhard layabout. Mercury conjunct Chiron means you pick up on every timbre of voice tone and sound hollow should you utter an out-of-era or inauthentic sentiment.
Remember that Mercury, apart from ruling words, writers, tricks, games, shipping and thought speed, is also the God of Currency, in all the meanings of that word.
