Presumptuous priest, this place commands my patience,
Or thou shouldst find thou hast dishonor’d me.
Gloucester in Shakespeare’s
Henry VI, part 1 (III.i.8-9)
Mercury turns retrograde, Mars 22, 2018. (Stays RX until April 15, funny, huh.)
Horoscopes starting 3.22.2018
It’s called, “Escaping the whirlwind.” According to one buddy of mine, the biggest problems in the current era is that we get swept up in the moment — staying in the moment is important — but then we all get swept up within the whirlwind. We get pulled in, sucked up, and suddenly, it’s the items on our phone, or social media feed, or e-mail, messages. Something. That becomes the focal point. We get sucked into the whirlwind. Easy enough to see the happening and around your birthday, there’s usually a deluge of incoming material about this, right?
To avoid being sucked into the whirlwind, the maelstrom’s vortex, in order to avoid that? Use the off switch. Most electric devices have one. Unplug, turn it off, leave it alone, let the battery die. That disconnects your fine Aries self from that sucking vortex that can eat away at time otherwise better spent, better spent doing….
There’s a single image that should go with this, with roots that predate current events, that’s for sure. It’s the image of whirling vortex of ferocious energy, and then, off to one side, there’s the the calm. Be the calm by removing yourself from the whirlwind.
“But I go to check my email, first.”
No, no you don’t. It can wait.
Wait. Step side, Remove yourself from the whirlwind.
How to prepare for the unexpected? If it is unexpected, then there is no way to expect it? Tired of my inane tautology? The Sun, Mercury (retrograde), Venus, and Uranus are all in Aries. To add to that weird flavor, the tautology I was referring to? At the very end of this scope, while Mercury is still in apparent retrograde motion, Uranus and Venus make a disquieting conjunction. Venus is the main planet for Taurus; Uranus, not so much.
