Halloween is on the way and the mercurial trickster archetype will be freely roaming and slinking about in the dark making trouble!
Meanwhile, it’s Sept 18, 2009, and Mercury Rx is busy causing car and computer breakdowns, re-negotiations galore, and the same old same old speeches and pronouncements out of the mouths, pens, and keyboards of government officials, journalists, and bloggers.
And yes, Mercury wears many hats, from a helmet with wings to a jester’s floppy jingle-belled chapeau. But we can’t call the planet a ‘he’ because it’s androgynously neutral, or as I like to think of it: acts like tofu when blended in aspect with other planets, for fleet-footed Mercury ‘picks up’ the flavor of any contact, and acts as mouthpiece of the moment…and often as a messenger from the Collective Unconscious.
For as you know, our thinking processes, communicating abilities, and any writing and orating tendencies we may have are all mercurial pursuits and talents which make politicians’ astrological Mercuries very important planets in their horoscopes.
And since Mercury’s lightening quickness is legendary, I hope you’ll let your mercurial leanings speed you to the crossroads of this blog and the blog of astrologer Anne Whitaker in Scotland from whence she sends us pertinent messages from the Twelfth House of the Unconscious, and where my article Unruly Tricksters of the Twelfth House has been kindly published.
So here’s a message from one Mercurian to another: thanks a bunch for allowing me to join in, Anne – that’s some sexy photo of Mercury you’ve got there!
