May 11 Mars in GEMINI until June 24 MENTAL CHATTER
Mars’s in the Twin sign draws us into the mental planes, the airy elemental realms, into thinking, a lot. We will be able to have the eloquence of the tongue, and fluidity of the mind in duality.
We will have our brains flamed. The Passion will be mind centred, and after all, it’s all in the mind, anyway. Mercury is consciousness. Everything IS consciousness. There will be endless talking, and questioning, being curious; mucho mental flexibility and changes of mind.
Don’t expect commitments during this time. it is more an enquiry or a debate into what we want/don’t want.
We’re in for about six weeks of Mercurial Androgynous psychopomp guidance.
Mercury is also in Gemini now. Mercury will go Retrograde May 18 @ 6:40 pm PDT/ 9:40 pm EDT/ May 19 @ 1:40 am GMT.Mercury is Retrograde until June 10th.
Mercury’s Retrograde motion will also have effect on Mars while it is in Gemini.
GEMINI is a much more complex sign that is usually thought of these days. Mercury was originally a psychopomp or guide of souls from this world to the next.
Vision of Hermes Trimestigus by Johfra Bosschart,
What is a psychopomp? They are creatures, spirits, angels or deities in many religions whose responsibility is to escort newly deceased souls into the afterlife. They do not judge, they are there to provide safe passage. They are also associated with birds, whip-poor-wills, horses, ravens, stags, dogs, crows, owls, sparrows, and cuckoos.
In Jungian Psychology the psychopomp mediates between the unconscious and conscious realms. In dreams, the psychopomp is w wise man or woman, or sometimes a helpful animal. shamans are also psychopomp and they also help initiate souls from the spirit into the physical world at birth.
ANUBIS the jackal headed God,first greeted dead Egyptians. The Egyptian Goddess Hathor, the Milky Way is her sacred breast-milk. Hekate the Crone Goddess at the crossroads, Azrael, the Angel of Death in Jewish and Christian mythology is a psychopomp in Islamic Mythology. The Angel Gabriel. The Morrigan, a Celtic shape-shifting Goddess of transitions is known to appear as ravens and crows. The horse Goddess Epona. The Valkyries in Norse myth were also psychopomp’s. Kalma is a Finnish Goddess of the dead.
Mercury is androgynous, and androgyny is in the news. Androgyny was classically shown as a human with both sexes and it does occur rarely in nature. People born this way were considered to be very powerful psychic beings and revered.
Bruce Jenner’s sex-change means he is becoming an androgyne.. He will be both male and female even if he identifies as female because his body, mind, spirit,DNA and history are still mainly masculine. If Bruce had been born into Native Indigenous cultures when they were intact, he would have been called a twin-spirit and allowed to wear women’s clothes and to do women’s type of chores. He would be considered to be a shaman.
I wish people would use the androgyne term rather thank transgendered which is a description but not an explanation. Do you know what I mean?
We all have both masculine and feminine aspects in us anyways. All Males begin life as females and testosterone make them turn into males. The range of more masculine females or more feminine males is purely chemistry, it’s our hormones. The Age of Aquarius which we are entering is an air sign and more androgynous. If one believes in past lives then we may have been a man in a past life and in this one, we are female but the past life memory may make it easier for these women to naturally be stronger, more independent, more masculine.
Androgyny is important in the alchemical work of being whole. Androgyny helps us to incorporate the Beloved within ourselves. This is the true sacred marriage within which attracts the outer beloved.
We will be able to enter the underworld of Hades, the Underworld more easily with Mars in Gemini during the retrograde phase, so set your sites on digging for diamonds in the soul mine.
It’s very important for all of us to go on the shadow journey now and attempt to marry ourselves. Saturn will soon re-enter Scorpio and I predict the 3 month period from mid-June to mid-September to be a time of some of the most intense deepest inner work revelations there will be for a while.
You will likely feel more jittery, stressed and your mind will be racing. You will need to remember to breathe. GEMINI is the lungs. Remember to BREATHE, CONSCIOUSNESS AND THE BREATH ARE ONE.
TIRIEL is the Angel of Mercury. You can call on him to help guide you.
