“Okay, so… what am I doing?”
[Sees man running]
“Oh I’m chasing this guy”
[Runs after man.
Man pulls a gun out and shoots at him.]
“Oh no… he’s chasing me!”
This is one of my favorite scenes in the 90’s cult classic film Memento starring Guy Pearce. It’s about a guy on a quest to find the man who killed his wife.
Only one slight problem. He has no short-term memory and can’t remember one moment to the text. His solution? He tattoos his entire body with notes on who his looking for a new the clues he’s found. The problem was, the more he tried to control an impossible situation, the deeper a hole he dug himself in.
But it was actually pretty funny!
This is kind of like the astrology of right now. Lots going on to confuse our minds. And if we don’t write it down, it’s as good as gone.
Or maybe it wasn’t meant to get done anyway?
I feel like I’m gliding through life lately with a million things to do, but no destination in sight. As soon as I follow one thread, another one seems to need attention.
Oh and not to mention those crazy vivid dreams…
On Thursday we have two major alignments happening in our skies, Mercury stations retrograde in Libra and Jupiter opposes Neptune.
By now, many of us are familiar with the gist of what it means when Mercury is retrograde. We become anxious and rushed for no reason. We’re confused, lose things and ~ worst of all in this age of technology ~ our electronic devices rebel against us.
“What did I do to deserve such defiance from you, dear laptop?!” Oh yes, begging, cursing and crying over our electronics often comes with the territory.
This Mercury retrograde is in the sign of Libra who seeks balance, pleasant relationships and peace. We may find ourselves confused with someone’s intentions or words. Are we naturally trusting or are we overly suspicious? When words fail you, drop in the the heart and listen to what’s really going on beyond the words.
Add to this turbulence is Jupiter opposing Neptune. Confusion and delusion are the realm of watery Neptune. As it opposes Jupiter this bewilderment expands and for some of us it’s as if we’re washed out to sea.
That’s why is’t important to swim in the general direction of where you want to go. Relax your need to be there on time or get there in a straight line.
Compassion, laughter and poise are your guardian angels right now.
Now, where was I going, again? Oh yes, intuition!
The beauty of our mental capacity being switched “off” is that our intuition is turned “on”. Like turbo on. So make the most of your manifestation rituals, your creativity and your allowing for miracles. This is an enchanted time.
As for those crazy dreams… write them down! As soon as you wake up. No matter how strange, disturbing or non-sensical they may seem. It’s gets it out of your head and on to the page – like a psyche dump – and in time you may find some gems of wisdom there.
My guest for next Monday’s Eclipse Unity Circle call will be mystic writer and shamanic dream guide Kate Temple-West who’ll be speaking to our group on deciphering prophetic dreams. She’ll be doing an invocation and a dreamwork game… intrigued? The Circle closes on Thursday, Join us!
