Mercury goes direct  >>>>>>> November 26, 2012
Feeling these astral insights from the wonderful Robert Wilkinson and his Aquarius Papers:
“Mercury goes direct in motion Nov 26, 2:48 pm PST, 10:48 pm Greenwich, and speeds up for the next 10 weeks. This shows a quickening of the ability to coordinate, put things together, understand the whole and the parts, the process and the larger cycles…”
“Rudhyar says this is a degree of  ‘dependence upon inner or outer environment for the substance of understanding,’ ‘transmission of knowledge,’ and ‘channel-ship. In ‘The Astrological Mandala’ he states the keynote is ‘the capacity to transmit transcendental knowledge.'”
“He notes that this symbolizes the ability to those who live ‘in a state of ardent and sustained faith’ to become channels for higher knowledge and wisdom, where those with a quiet and attentive mind can tune into things beyond normal understanding.'”
“He says there is a possibility of ‘superhuman realizations,’ but also the need for Divine Discrimination to balance ‘the overeagerness of faith.’ As this is the fourth degree of the sequence, it represents a technique of Actional Faith in the Span of Appreciation. Birds symbolize spiritual forces, so this is a symbol of ‘the possibility of learning from Higher Intelligences,’ channeling higher knowledge.”
“…In any case, we should all start seeing, hearing, and understanding things that point the way to some Mercurial technique of how we have been and continue to be guided to our Soul. Given that it falls at 19 Scorpio, it shows us some way to find connectedness on inner and outer levels that can make us more sure in our focus, magnetism, and ability to open in faith to techniques of regeneration.”
“Here we see how to turn old defeats into new victories, old debilities into new strengths, and old losses into the magnetic space that will attract future gains.”
“…Marc Jones says 19 Scorpio is where we see ‘the raw substance of intelligence,’ where ‘conscious existence can be shaped’ according to what we desire. Here we can ‘rework reality’ toward our ideal using imagination, selecting or rejecting any part of our makeup so we can better project an image that we ourselves create…”
“So at the end of this retrograde period, we find ourselves ready to fill a void with higher knowledge, awareness, and/or realizations…”
“We should get new insights into what opportunity, truths, and futures we awakened to…This is a time to tune into a higher and deeper experience of life itself, seeing the end of one quest as an opening to begin some new form of self-exhibition.”
“As Mars and Pluto rule Mercury and they are conjunct, there will be tremendous mind power available to those who accept a discipline. Here our ability to attune to the angels, devas, and all the invisible world, from nature spirits to Masters, attracts a higher awareness or vaster experience.”
This will be an extraordinarily favorable and productive time of attunement and alignment with the entire invisible world and the life forms helping humanity that can be contacted there. Set aside glamor, desire, ego attachments and push-pull power games, and this can be a time when we really become trained to manifest something deeper and higher than we have before now.”
“We’ve now had opportunities to reshape our desires and how we deal with loss or shared resources, and should have gotten new insights into what’s ended or needs to be eliminated in our lives so we can come to a freer, wiser, calm awareness. So now that we’ve done our rehearsals, reviews, revisions, and/or research on how we can coordinate the parts of this emerging process during the past 3 weeks, it’s again time to get it on!!!”
“Here we face the future, and do what we must to weave elements of that future into our current life and affairs. We continue to eliminate attitudes and interpretations no longer appropriate to our emerging process, and can see the interconnectedness of life as we find our unique place to doing our Being in a vaster field of activity.”
“We now begin to ride the edge of extremely dynamic change, finding new forms of demonstrating the power of our magnetism…”
We’re now on the threshold of being able to know without thinking, directly experiencing communication rather than having to go through a linear evaluation of hearing and interpreting words. We can now gain higher awareness related to the old ‘skins of personality’ we’ve shed (Scorpio is known for ‘shedding skins’), as well as old ghosts from the past…”
“Open up and be receptive to higher awareness, higher knowledge, and a greater faith in your ability to know in ways you’ve never known before. This begins a deeper experiential method of weaving things together, and a deeper dedication toward integrating personality within a deeper Soul response. Purify, eliminate, regenerate your mind and ability to focus without distractions getting in the way. Concentrate to integrate, let go and leap into a new life adventure that’s already prepared for you.”
We’ve just been through a clarifying period where many things have been reviewed to see what’s over, what needs to be over, and what needs to be regenerated to bring forth the higher awareness we’re already receiving, whether we know it or not. Something has been stabilized, and we can now move forward on the basis of the insights we’ve gained these past several weeks.”
“Things will speed up considerably for the next three months, so go for a new focused power freed from old considerations and attachments. Continue to adapt with efficiency and a sense of freedom, and get ready for further sacrifices over the next few weeks that will focus and expand your spiritual effectiveness.”
“Clear out your mind of its old concepts to purify your understanding… Let go of all you no longer need while bringing forth higher knowledge and awareness, and by studying the nature of the subconscious or unconscious mind and how these work, you can come to some powerful depth realizations.”
“Strange and interesting karmic kickbacks are indicated in this cosmic Mercury direct moment. Expect a firm quickening, a need for self-sufficiency and self-reliance, and remember that humor often provides objectivity when it’s most needed. Enjoy the role you were born to play, keep attuning to your invisible helpers, and ride this incredibly productive energy through this period of ‘time out of time.'”
