You might remember that a few weeks ago I mentioned this retrograde period might not be so easy.
Why? Because Mercury in Pisces alone can make us fuzzy-headed and foggy. Mercury retrograde in Pisces can make it even more of a struggle to get your thinking straight.
But maybe that’s the point.
Our society is so concerned with getting from A to B. With making the rules and enforcing them. The demands for absolute perfection are unrealistic. And often misguided.
And when things don’t go the way we think they are supposed to – when someone says that something we don’t expect, or don’t like; when something run late; when a commitment or contract isn’t honoured; when deadlines are missed or meetings go totally off track – it’s so easy to get thrown off by it.
But maybe that the lesson that the universe keeps trying to teach us, but we’re not getting it: There is no schedule. There is no structure. Yet we keep trying to create architecture out of time, love and energy.
And the rules? They don’t matter as much as you think.
Now, I’m not saying that this means we should run wild and wreak havoc. (Well, maybe a little bit of wildness can be fun). I’m saying that it doesn’t hurt to look at where we are being too rigid, too hard on ourselves, or on others, and ask:
“Why do I have this expectation, anyway?”
There are always different ways of doing things and seeing things. And there are so many different ways to be.
Like the tarot’s Hierophant, we can hold tight to rules and traditions, but we have to remember that what we see is not all there is. We must consciously work to unlock deeper understandings of our lives and our worlds so that we can lift the veil on our purposes.
“I am building trust in life’s uncertainties.”
