Yes, Mercury Is Direct But…

Yes, Mercury is Direct but…it’s square Saturn. AKA less glitches, more velocity but the gnarly angle between Mercury and Time God Saturn could be materially confronting. With Mercury and Saturn in Fixed signs, it’s not so much reality bites as reality gnaws.

And while Mercury square anything would usually whiz by at warp speed, the Magician planet is yet to gain full momentum so the Merc-Saturn square is an extended play version. It’s in effect till Tuesday!

If you’re having a merde time with it, one or more of these five succinct tips could help:

(1) Work with the materials at hand – this is weighty energy so you can’t juggle or conjure with it. Think more ‘build’ or ‘craft.’

(2) Gloom-mongering won’t help but turning your concerns into equations and running some calculations or analytics will.

(3) This particular alignment can generate the sensation that situations or dynamics won’t change – that you or it are stuck: it’s an illusion. There is a strong chance that the scenario bugging you the most is about to change and drastically so. It’s already begun.

(4) Recall the essential Saturn Crap management protocol: Make a plan – any plan, so long as it’s objective and methodical. This alone goes a long way to alleviating the pressure.

(5) Mercury is also sextile Neptune until Tuesday – this means that once you’ve devised Operation Rut-Fuqer, you can enjoy some snazzy Merc-Nepune nebulosity – think indigo disco mist, psychedelic dreaming, visionary concepts, aura enhancement and more nuanced intimacy.

This scenario is expanded, with more granular dates and sign-specific info in the recent Horoscopes and Daily Mystic Updates. The April 22-24 D.M. is the most comprehensive for Merc Retro shadow dates and micro-timing your relationships and other ventures.

The Daily Mystics are members-only BUT I have opened this one from the archives up to everyone in case it can help with Vibe Control during this tricky transit.

I tested positive for covid today. Consequence of all the social interactions I’ve been enjoying lately. Have pink eye too. So obviously I need to rest. Yeah it’s weird but also beautiful and healing. I’m quietly relieved to have a totally legitimate excuse to swerve the emotional intensity of the daily fellowship meetings and veg out for a while. Learning to process emotions and relate to other people in an entirely new way is a lot. I have been going too far with my gratitude lists and sharing them in a WhatsApp group. Today I was so high from the… Read more »

Hi dearest Invicta, I hope you are reading this from bed, wearing comfy socks, eating delicious soup and sipping hot tea, and being good and kind to your beautiful self. Baby steps, one at a time. You have done so much already, time to rest a bit. Sending *love.* XOO

Invicta

Thanks Earthstar.
im triple vaccinated so I was quite surprised by the breakthrough infection and also how ill I felt. I’m almost over it now though. The muscle aches, fever, sore throat and coughing have about 75% disappeared but they were rough. So yeah, on the mend. Thank you. Xx

Earthstar

Heya Invicta 💗💗 as long as you take care of you.. Yes, am triple vaccinated here too, but it has been all over the news here in Oz how Omicron gets through, anyway – just not as severely. In my home state our state gov’t kept (domestic, in addition to the international) borders closed until a 70%double//50%triple..? vaccination rate in our local population, but we have still been through a Covid “wave” after borders opened in March, that’s only tempering now (we are now over 85% triple vaccinated).

Report back on tip no 4 it was just perfect. I made a plan and stuck to it (imperfectly) and was given so much grace and guidance. I’m still bumbling along making a complete mess of things but it’s okay. I’m becoming more aware of my narcissistic thoughts and the lies my ego tells me. I wrote down the train of angry thoughts this morning and followed them as far as they went. A few pages in I was laughing out loud. Until now I’ve been believing that rubbish without examining any of it. I’ve been buying into the emotional… Read more »

You’re so sweet sharing your neural process with us all! I guess that with Neptune in the 12th your subconscious/ conscious mind could be subject to high levels of illusion….you’re doing great sifting through it all in a Saturnine way! When I first started my healing journey over a decade ago now, some of the best pieces of advice I was given was two fold…. 1. If the voice in your head was a real life person, how long would it take for you to tell them to shut up? lol and 2. For one day, (since I was getting… Read more »

its exactly like that. The inner critters need to stfu. They’ve been getting away with this devious crap for too long. I’m not sharing out of sweetness. Pfff. If only I was that nice.

Cecemesee and Invicta are so fuqing real, so much gold among the daily drosss around us that it really does make me proud to be on this site among people such as yourselves.

This site is definitely a great place to discover the extraordinary that lives in us all, and I’m so grateful to be apart of it! 🥹🥰 Daily dross is right lol, REAL conversations is such a very welcomed change to mind numbing small talk.

Invicta

I’m grateful to be able to share honestly here about this stuff.
Transits I’m currently seeing in iCal are Jupiter square my Jupiter, Saturn trine my Saturn, Jupiter opposite my Pluto, Jupiter trine my Neptune and Neptune opposite my Sun.
I mean 🤷‍♀️ If I had any doubts about the accuracy of the seven years ahead astrological report that kinda blew them out the water mate.

Invicta

Putting the big transits into my phone as all day events and having an astrological calendar is a great visual aid when trying to reconcile feelings and make decisions about them.

Invicta

Mustering the willpower to apply tip no 4
My exact Saturn issue and how it affects my relationships with people and feeling I belong is being triggered. By my behaviour I should say. I’m deeply uncomfortable about it and having all sorts of feelings. Feelings are irrelevant when dealing with Saturn however and it’s a relief not to have to wallow in them. A basic plan and it’s execution are what is required. Not navel gazing. Okay I’m willing to learn new things. Here goes.

Calcifer

Thank you for this. Mystic. Especially for what you write about the feeling of being stuck. I have been stuck with a verbally abusive neighbor for the past 7 months, since I arrived in my new house. He has a longstanding conflict with the association of owners of the road that we live on, and of which my life partner is the chairman. My neighbor is not paying for his membership and doesn’t want to. He’s a Leo Sun square Saturn in Taurus. He has Venus in Gemini square Pluto in Virgo. On the day of the New Moon he… Read more »

Cecemesee

Oh wow this sounds awful 😞…. you know Mystic has mentioned to protect yourself and threshold of your house to place a line of salt crystals across your front door. It should be on her House Witchery older blogs (I think!)… or google, but definitely anywhere you feel his presence, front and back of the house. It does seem you need someone to intervene and diffuse this situation…
Hoping he gets some much needed therapy or moves away suddenly lol

Calcifer

Thank you Cecemesee, so kind of you to respond! I feel comforted and strengthened by being able to share here.
I have already put salt on the doorstep facing his house, and it’s good to hear that you would also recommend it. On a more concrete level I am building a dossier, by filing police complaints against my neighbor.
And after I posted here – which already made me feel better – I decided to visited some of my other new neighbors and shared my concerns with them. It is so helpful to be able to talk to other people.

Cecemesee

My pleasure! Thinking about you feeling trapped in your own home definitely struck a familiar nerve for me, so I wanted to offer you my thoughts & strength (over Wi-Fi lol). Safety in numbers is a great way to protect yourself and you’ve definitely done the right thing to alert your neighbors and the authorities! Victims quite often suffer in silence, so voicing your concerns is exactly what is necessary in this situation. I would also be writing very strongly worded intentions or release using the power of the next full moon 🌕….. sometimes simply writing your thoughts down &… Read more »

Thanks again Cecemesee, also for the tip to write some strong intentions using the power of the next full moon. Your words of support are much appreciated!

Anytimes ❣️

I like the idea of putting up one of those chinese red feng shui bagua mirror on your front door. It reflects the negativity away from you.

isa

oh no, this is horrible, calcifer. I don’t have legal advice for you, but for me in the past burning incense in their direction has worked with awful, very aggro neighbours. to the relief of the entire condo, they ‘suddenly’ moved after about 15 years of being a major pain in the arse for all. doesn’t have to be an expensive one or your favourite one if you’re a bit tight with money; I imagine the principle is to repel their energy and protect yours (there surely exist special incense or herbs blends for this purpose). just see if you… Read more »

Calcifer

Thank you isa, it is really nice to get your feedback! I love incense and believe in its potential to cleanse energy. I will start burning some incense every night where I am closest to him. Maybe not my favorite Japanse kind, but something like sage maybe 🌿

isa

yes, that’s precisely what I meant, calcifer, not the super special one you love the most (that’s your treat to yourself <3). I would say something you can afford to use for a longish time. hope this works out soon <3

Calcifer

Hi isa, it’s good to know that I will have to burn the incense for ‘a longish time’, will start to stock my supplies 😉

Oh I am so sorry this is happening to you. Yes I have experienced this. Due to other factors it was the worst time of my life. All I can suggest is if he enters your property tell him he is not welcome and is trespassing. Please leave or I will call the police. Say it with a stoic face. Keep a dairy of what he does. Get a outside camera for proof and audio record. . He sounds like a narcissist so don’t give him energy but give strong boundaries. Try and be patient. When he is not getting… Read more »

And I know it is easier said than done. Small steps for now. If you can’t afford the surveillance just use you phone.

You know that you have a community here that loves your kindness and wisdom.

Take refuge in this goodness.

Calcifer

Thank you so much Wish!
I think you may be right about him being a narcissist. I know the term gets used a lot, but in this case it could be appropriate. The tip about not giving him energy but putting up strong boundaries is greatly appreciated. And I am also looking into getting surveillance, it is pricey, but I see it as an investment in feeling a bit safer…\Thanks again 🙂

Wish Upon a Star

How interesting that you wrote about this and then I run into my problematic neighbor at the fruit and veg shop the next day. He was on his own and not with his pit bull of a wife. But hey I could see the big picture now. I was with a friend and I told her. We watched him. The neighbor that was on the other side of him also had problems with him. They were there for 16 years. They left to go to NZ. JUst before they left they told me that this man had bi polar. You… Read more »

What a coincidence, Wish! Yes, our neighbors – just like our siblings – can be among the biggest challenges in life. We do not choose them. I am really in favor of compassion and trying to take the human approach. Unfortunately, this person next to me seems to be so angry and closed off that there is no space for a conversation… While he was yelling right at me, at the same time I felt like he did not even see me (no real eye contact). Anyway it is great that your neighbor situation is behind you now, and that… Read more »

Thanks Calcifer. He obviously has rage if there is no eye contact.

Just be pragmatic and make yourself seen in your inner world.

Yes neighbors and siblings. I’m a Gemini Sun in the 4th house with Taurus Moon in the 3rd.

This is dreadful Calcifer. What a prick. I’m so sorry you’re having to deal with this crap right now. Ugh. Not okay

Thank you Invicta 🌝

Calcifer

Hi Mystic. It all started with a small electricity house which was planned to be placed in his garden. The municipality ordered it like this, this was not the choice or the responsibility of our association of owners. Even so, his neighbor on the other side helped him out and offered to have that small electricity house in her garden instead of his. But it is still very close to his garden, which he finds hard to accept. I guess he felt he lost face when he couldn’t force that electricity house to go elsewhere. Ever since that happened, 2… Read more »

Mystic has good advice hey?

It is hard to really know what is really going on in another persons head? But you can look after yourself with good self care.

Hang in there Calcifer.

Stella

I feel for your situation. I’ve a neighbour whose been getting into my emails, phone and computer files. I’ve tried everything to block them – including not working at home – and I’m just almost spent emotionally. Living next door to malice is complicated.

Sounds horrible. I don’t know what to say.

Wish Upon a Star

Take care of yourself Stella.

Stella

thank you Wish.

Calcifer

What a nightmare, Stella! You must feel so vulnerable. I just read – somewhere else – that the transit of Saturn through Aquarius can make us feel exposed and vulnerable in our communities. In need of boundaries and protection… I know this is certainly what I feel like since I moved in to my new house. Wishing you good energy and strength! Take care 💛

Wish Upon a Star

Interesting Calcifer. I would agree with that. My neighbors are good now but I do feel I need my boundaries and protection.

Well I’ve got a Pied Butcherbird as a new pet now. I feed him daily and he protects my little vegie garden on my back porch.

I like the Symbolism. He is a fierce protector. I call him Bazza ! LOL !

Back at you with good energy and strength.

Over and out.

Calcifer

That’s lovely, a bird as a talisman! To my European eyes the butcherbird looks like some kind of magpie. Magpies are fierce indeed, they don’t mind taking on a cat!

Wish Upon a Star

Oh no. I love cats.

This one is gentle but fierce about his food. Like me !

Stella

Yes Calcifer, I do feel vulnerable. And angry which may be linked to that feeling of vulnerability.

Calcifer

Yes, Stella, feeling vulnerable and angry often go together, in my experience. I am trying to channel my anger into taking concrete steps to protect myself (filing complaints with police, getting surveillance installed, talking to other neighbors for support). But a big part of the struggle is internal for me, accepting that I can’t change my neighbor and that I am powerless to a certain degree… It comes and goes in waves. Wishing you all the best and as much peace of mind as possible 🕊

Heya Calcifer, I apologise for my delayed response, if you have already moved on!! So, so hope you are okay, it sounds truly awful. I thought I might share some of my old strategies for this kind of interpersonal negative energy, but please, take it or leave it – am only sharing what has ‘worked’ for me in the past – feel free to disregard!! 1) This technique came to me in a dream, and I believe I have the permission from Higher Guidance/intelligence to share it.

Hello dearest Earthstar, thank you so much for taking the time to respond to my post! Hope you still get a chance to see that I read it. I feel that your first piece of advice is very, very beautiful. Though I think it would work best with someone who you love, or once loved. In case of my neighbor it would be less suitable, as I don’t even know him though he actively wishes the worst on me, calling me names whenever he sees me. I truly feel sick at heart about it.

Hi Calcifer!!💖 oh you are absolutely correct – I think Shakyamuni Buddha’s dream advice is prob best for longer term/more invested relationships, right..? Certainly it is tricky, although paradoxically I do find it easier to feel nicer things about acquaintances, although perhaps not the really frighteningly behaved ones like your neighbour! Xoo The leaving study behind has been quite intensely painful. I imagine I am in a process of grief – I keep remembering the marvellous personalities, teachers and stories I encountered (living and ancient) and feel totally bewildered. But practically, the decision is unequivocal -it was bad for my… Read more »

*it’s on pg 198 of my copy of The Artist’s Way, and it is called “escape velocity” (not velocity drag as I imaginatively but not so inaccurately? 🤣 remembered it), and it inevitably attracts “The Test” (that keeps you stuck in same place, according to J. Cameron’s friend, who made up the theory.) Anyway – have a good day, Saggi full moon and upcoming solstice, C Xoo

Thanks for adding the expression ‘escape velocity’ to my vocabulary, Earth! Though ‘velocity drag’ expresses the principle even better, maybe. I should try the Artist’s Way again, did the writing every morning faithfully for three months, but couldn’t get started with the rest 😉😊

Calcifer

The way you explain your decision, Earthstar, it sounds like you did the best thing. Though I can imagine it must be so painful, almost as if you left a long term relationship. It’s not just what you left behind, but also a certain promise of the future which is attached to being committed you your studies. It is good that you are so aware of what you are going through, though, and are able to put words to it. Still it is grieving process and it will take time.

Calcifer, thank you soo much for listening ..!! Xoo 🙏💫 i feel it is probably perimenopause//hormones//even awakened-but-stagflating-kundalini as well as grief (i bang on and on about Tara Springett, but she has written the best stuff on hyper-sensitivity/awareness being a symptom of stirring kundalini – although her version of it is not the breathless-Hollywood version, thank goodness !!) So it is hard to share, but even harder to hold (alone). I figure the Universe knows what She is doing, so will just keep “showing up”. Blessings to you 🤗🍀💐

Calcifer

Hi Earth, yes, do keep showing up. You are a beautiful flower and the world needs you 🙂 But also take good care of yourself first, and remember to take it one day at a time. If you are in your 40s it is important to listen to your body closely as you will start to need looking for a new balance in the decade to come… Especially if you have other health challenges, as I think you referred to once or twice.

I’m inspired to try again with The Artists Way. I never officially gave up on it but the results I got from simply doing the morning pages were insane. I couldn’t get beyond the first few chapters and exercises. It’s an amazing practice. Then the artist date once per week is something I am still trying to get right. I’ve managed it a few times but there’s no routine established yet and I need to nail that down before I process with Cameron’s work. Brilliant reminder. Xx
