Groundhog Day & Mercury Retrograde beginning

A time to be kind to ourselves and others, as Mercury gets into its loop-de-loop.

Groundhog Day

It’s Groundhog Day!

A very funny movie with a brilliantly spiritual twist 😀

Poor old Bill Murray living the same day over and over, until he got it right.
That meant developing a lighter, kinder mind; getting a sense of consideration for others; and basically wising up before he could move on and up into a life of his dreams. Because that’s how we get there, isn’t it.

Knowing this we can avoid repeating our mistakes, while creating a better space for ourselves instead.

Sense of Consideration

Geshe Kelsang Gyatso describes a sense of consideration as:

a very special inner wealth. It makes us become spiritually rich.”
He also says “it is like beautiful clothes that cause others to be attracted to us.


Mercury Retrograde

This week is cosmically relevant as well.
Mercury is in his retrograde pre-shadow phase right now. It actually goes retrograde February 6th 2014.

Scientifically this means that the little grey planet’s trajectile loops back on itself, before continuing in a more direct fashion across the night sky.

Astrologically the effect of  Mercury’s swing backwards is all about about re-thinking, renovation, reforming… you get the picture.

The traditional advice here, is “Don’t travel, Don’t sign contracts. Don’t marry. Don’t touch electrics!” But the whole Mercury retrograde cycle actually lasts eight weeks and happens three times, sometimes even four times in a year! That’s a long time to hide under the duvet and a real waste of a truly magical time.”

Beware the Total Solar Eclipse in Australia!

The solar eclipse today / tomorrow won’t have been visible to most of the world. The only city to experience it in its entirety was the Australian city of Cairns.
It’s worth a mention though, because as the moon obscures the sun it aligns with the bright star Unuk Snake Heart.
As the name suggests, this is likely to have a somewhat unpleasant affect on all of us, wherever we are.
And of course there’s the Mercury retrograde happening the now, which makes Mercury look like it’s going backwards in the night sky. It also makes us more sensitive than usual and prone to making mistakes. It is a great time to re-do things though. It’s a good time for going back over things and checking them through. Best give things time right now. Remember ~ more haste less speed, and a stitch in time saves nine.

This alignment could prove treacherous!

It looks like it’s possibly going to be a toxic, uncomfortable eclipse. ‘Possibly’ because it’s a challenge. We can use it to our advantage!
We can take the snake’s venom and make it an antidote, suitable for use in future poisonous attacks. Or we can just go ahead and be poisoned by it.
