It’s an important time to think about the work and service we’ve come to do in this physical world. And to consider the health and wellness of the body, the vessel that allows us to do the work of Spirit. Paying attention to your stress levels, mental and digestive health is a good investment of time and energy. Think about the tools you use in your work and your daily habits and rituals. Stay grounded, discerning and pragmatic, especially when your goals transcend the visible horizon. Keep your eye on the smaller details as that is what makes up the bigger picture.
You may find authority figures, teachers, preachers, politicians and other ideologues (and ideologies) coming your way. Stay out of the crossfire as debates on truth rarely yield benefit when one or more participants refuse to recognize other possibilities as equally valid. Stick to your path and recognize the others have the same right. Focus on the good you can do at the present moment, bit by bit, day by day.
Many will be triggered by their wounds, vulnerabilities and feelings of exclusion. Do your best to find the deeper insights through those experiences and the memories that arise. And then do what you need to do. Strive to find the place of clarity within no matter what is happening around you. That is how you can be of the greatest service on this planet at this time.
Look back to August 1-2 & 22-23 when Mercury went over these points, bearing in mind the influence of the Solar Eclipse on August 21. You’ll find the answers you need.
