I’m back to write a little more on the clarity that I seem to be achieving, especially since Mercury went retrograde.
Speaking about that, I just want to say that even though many people dread when Mercury goes retrograde I’m specially fond of those times. They are really good for going within to revise situations and things that have been bothering you. I see it as an opportunity for rethinking, for gaining yet another perspective in whatever matter you’ve been thinking of. Mercury retrograde is good for introverted kinds of activities, which is probably why it is so misunderstood.
Anyways, Mercury went retrograde while I was at that festival near Brighton. And yes I started having a few insights into myself, the self that I am becoming, and things to let go of.
My vision seems to be becoming clearer and clearer.
The first synchronicity happened with the girl that went to pick me up at the train station, right in the beginning.
When I was just about to get in the car I spotted a bag from the same yoga school I just came back from in Thailand. The place where I had a boom of purification and purging. It turned out that she also just came back, (she remembered seen me at the library!), and from a powerful transformative experience as well. I haven’t seen her astrological chart, but she told me about having a stellium in Libra and about how much heavy transformation she’s been going through in the last few years.
That was a magical way to start the festival.
Then right after meeting yet another Libra, a girl started putting up her tent besides mine. She was from Portugal and as we were talking we found out that she lives in a community near the forest of Dean where I was living last summer. That girl knows pretty much all the people that I got to work and share very especial moments last year.
That was it, another one, just like that.
I was amazed to be hit by two strong synchronicities like those in such a short period of time.
It felt like a confirmation, like a big yes from the universe.
I was right about going there on my own. I was right.
I did meet many interesting people and felt very different from last year’s experience. It was like a very subtle feeling of belonging. The beginning of what seems to be a massive change of lifestyle for me.
I’m not entirely sure about where I’m heading, but seeing all of those beautiful colorful people just felt right. Engaging with them in creative and unique ways just felt right. Being able to be myself without struggle, without feeling the looks of criticism or puzzles from others was amazing. It was like being part of a circus, but in a good way.
(I somehow have always fantasised about belonging to a family in a circus, always traveling and performing)
I felt like being part of a conscious community where people care about each other and at the same time give space for each other to just be.
So many smiles and hugs. So much truthfulness. (And it was a drug and alcohol free festival!)
The message that I want to give with this post is a reminder. No matter how much struggle, confusion, destruction and death you are going through while having an important transit from any of the outer planets (by that I mean Uranus, Neptune and Pluto), don’t forget that clarity takes its time.
But when it hits you, during or after those times, no words to describe, it’s a bit like divine light.
It is powerfully mysterious and yet easy to recognise..
