Mercury Retrograde + Timing of the Electors

“The chess game continues between the 1% and the 99%. We, the People, are not pawns in this game but a force of Change…”

It’s time for our beloved mental Self to take a reflective journey through the domain of Capricorn ~ rules, structures, foundations as Mercury turns retrograde December 19, 2016 through January 8, 2017. Mercury is in close alignment with Pluto, the transformative wrecking ball, who has been uprooting and blowing up our foundations throughout 2016. Mercury’s journey into the Underworld trips the burglar alarm for the tight T-square tension between Pluto, Uranus and Jupiter. 

Things are About to get Interesting:

For the next three weeks, Mercury invites us to stop, look and listen. As we travel through the sign of Capricorn, we seek to understand what we are building in our lives as well as what we are building as a collective culture. Does this foundation still fit our purpose moving forward? Or have we achieved goals only to find their summit dull and uninspiring? (For a deeper personal look, find the house in your Natal chart that Capricorn rules).

The T-square action during this retrograde period says to look at the following two angles. The first angle is Jupiter in Libra. Jupiter wants to know about your relationships both personal and professional. Are they in balance? Are they equal, fair and working to expand the truth? The second angle is Uranus, Eris and Ceres in Aries. Uranus wants to know who you are at the core of your spiritual identity? Are you revolutionizing your world? Or are you staying within your comfort zone afraid to be seen, heard and known? Eris, the ultimate Feminine Warrior archetype, is pointing to the extra large pink (or orange) elephant in the room demanding to know the truth of who it is. Ceres, great-grandmother awareness helps us to answer these questions with the wisdom of our ancestors. How will this serve the next seven generations from now?

The Timing of the Electors:

It is not random that the Electors are gathering on the first day of Mercury Retrograde. They will be reviewing the eligibility of the next president-elect. With the news of Russia’s involvement in the election, it would be wise for the Electors to postpone the vote to review the CIA and FBI findings. This bold action will be in perfect alignment with Mercury Retrograde in Capricorn: stop, look, listen, think, reflect and review. Capricorn is all about rules, foundations, positive contributions to society and authority.

As Mercury completes its journey, Mercury revisits Sagittarius to have one more look around at justice, law, big picture, higher mind, global connections and spirituality. Sagittarius lets us know that we have to go here before we can grow.

Pluto is uprooting the United States political foundations and showing us its dark emotional side and its secrets. Mercury’s job is to review all the secrets and darkness that Pluto is digging up to transform it for the better. The Electors have to be brave and courageous to vote their conscience and put into action what our forefathers saw as a potential threat to the sanctity of the foundations of this country. Pray for them. Pray for our country. Pray that Peace will prevail. Pray we can move forward united with renewed spiritual strength that this government was originally founded upon to guarantee life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness for everyone. Pray.
