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