“Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier.”Charles Kettering
Mercury has entered Sagittarius, where She’ll remain for roughly three weeks… and all I hear is –
Open. Your. Mind.
Mercury is the planet of communication, learning, and perception. In Sagittarius, the sign of the Archer, She is ever ready to aim Her arrows higher and farther, for the purposes of both expanding, and deepening, Her world view and understanding. In Mutable Fire, She calls for adaptability, versatility, and a willingness to risk pushing on the boundaries of our experience…
Qualities we could use right about now, because we’re living in unprecedented times – times that call for alternative solutions and flexible ways of approaching our world.
For many of us, the circumference of our physical world has… well… shrunk.. or, perhaps drastically changed – and we find ourselves reaching out AND reaching in, in ways we had not considered before.
During these times, it is important for us to remember that “expansion” and “growth” can wear several costumes… and some of those costumes may look like you staying close to home with a mind-blowing book, learning an alternative practice, expanding a new-found vocation or avocation, or exploring the frontiers of your most personal relationships through good old conversation.
Whatever the costume… I think it looks like – OPENING YOUR MIND – because, with both the Sun and Mercury in Jupiter’s sign, we’re being asked to open ourselves up to a broader understanding that moves us beyond the limits of our current belief systems and philosophies.
So… stay true to you, but consider stepping outside of your comfort zone in order to expose yourself to the new and the untried. Say it with me:
“Today, I open. Today, I open. Today, I open.”
