“I have heard the mermaids singing each to each
I do not think they will sing to me
I have seen them riding seaward on the waves
Combing the white hair of the waves blown back
When the wind blows the water white and black.
We have lingered in the chambers of the sea
By sea-girls wreathed with seaweed red and brown
‘Til human voices wake us and we drown.” TS Eliot
I recently returned from a short trip to the Dominican Republic. Due to the snafu potential with travel and communications during the current Mercury retrograde period, I had scheduled my flight out of the local airport . This involved – both on the way down and the way back – making connections elsewhere. For logistical reasons (short layovers/ going through customs/time constraints in DR ) I carried my bag on board. My bag was bulky and heavy, though and i wan’t confident about getting it in or out of the overhead bin safely. So when I would get on the plane I would look around for a kind soul who might do it for me ( the flight crew is not allowed to do it.)
I figured on the way back I would check the bag and avoid the hassell entirely but due to some Mercury retrograde snafus I ended up carrying it on both returning flights.
I was tired of this process by my final flight back and just decided to invoke help from the universe to take care of getting the bag on and off the plane with no hassell to me at all. When i arrived at the boarding gate there was an announcement that there was limited cargo space on the plane and that anyone with a carry on bag needed to leave it at the gate for valet service – they would carry it on the plane and stow it away without my having to be involved. Upon landing I would pick it up right at the gate – no need to go to the baggage claim.
It was the second bag off the plane. This was especially good news because we had landed in a northeaster and it was supposed to start icing up a short time after my arrival – shortly after our drive home.
With this particular Mercury retrograde it is a good idea to remember that when imagining the future you would like to see, it is good to have a strong intention as well as faith in its becoming a reality at the foundation of your thinking. You do not need to know all the the details of how.
The Sabian symbol for Saturday’s First Quarter Moon is, “A mountain pilgrimage” and the interpretation by Marc Edmund Jones is ” “unquestioned devotion to the worth-while task at hand,” and says it calls for “”intensification of every vision to which intelligence might aspire.”
Cosmic energies support a strong determination to carry through and to persevere despite challenges along the path – to not give up but to keep on carrying on.
As with the Kings and Queens of old, an Astrologer or Tarot Card Reader should be a trusted ally on your life’s path.
