Registration will be open shortly for my 2017 Summer Retreat to Chalice Well, England! Stay Tuned…
Not a day goes by that isn’t marked by another Light-Bridge related event. Today Mercury pulls into his retrograde station, and he begins a VERY slow backwards journey tonight at 7:14pm EDT. This station sends Mercury back to the Light Bridge, where he will station direct on May 4th. That will be the second time Mercury connects with the Light Bridge. The first time was March 25 and 26, when the mental operating underwent a transmutation of the highest order. It was so profound that every one of us became thoroughly disoriented, temporarily, while the higher Mind was rewired and activated. We have been imbued with amazing new capacities to See and to Love with the Mind ever since.
I mentioned about a week ago that Mercury is moving so slowly that he remains in a storm period for his entire retrograde journey, after 9 days of storm period going into this retrograde cycle (as of April 1). Pretty much the moment Mercury entered Taurus he also entered a storm, and though he will retrograde back into Aries, and make it all the way back to 24 Aries and the Light Bridge, he will remain in a storm period throughout his retrograde cycle including every single day of recovering his shadow. Mercury will be in a storm period from April 1 through to May 18th, just as he recovers his shadow.
A Mercury storm occurs whenever Mercury travels less than one degree a day. (He usually travels up to 1 degree 14 minutes per day. He is generally the fastest planet in our soular system (except for the Moon). When he travels more slowly than the Sun (who travels 58 – 60 minutes, or 1 degree per day), he creates all kinds of interference in the mental realm (which is reflected by the atmosphere). We call atmospheric interference stormy weather.
I have never seen such a prolonged Mercury storm. There is always a storm whenever Mercury goes retrograde, but it usually lasts from 4 – 10 days around a station, on either side of the retrograde journey. For Mercury to remain in a storm throughout his entire retrograde journey, shadow to shadow, is, as far as I know, unprecedented.
With Mercury’s bracketing connections to the Light Bridge as he entered his shadow and then as he enters his direct station, it is clear that there is a multidimensional magnificent purpose for this storm. It isn’t easy to go through, we just don’t know what happens next, ever. This is largely because Mercury has conjunctions with Uranus on both ends of his retrograde cycle. This produces unexpected events, but it also has the quality of raising the mental body to a whole new level of consciousness. (Uranus has long been considered the higher octave of Mercury).
Now it can be said that Quaoar is taking on a 5D, even higher octave of consciousness for the mental body. We are about to move into a passage (that will last and last, maybe forever), where the newly transmuted mind is capable of completely original thought. For this to be the case permanently, the masculine and feminine Self must be completely united.
Here is Ellias Lonsdale’s meditation for today’s Mercury station (and his retrograde journey). It is reprinted with the author’s permission from his book Star Sparks:
Taurus 5: Tiny porcelain figures of people.
“The inner worlds seem small when you first encounter them. They are hidden in a teacup. Yet when you enter upon their Mysteries, they prove to be bigger than the world.
Fine things, special touches, quaint sensibilities mask and clothe and embody that which is subtle, interior, both imaginative and beyond fantasy or ordinary conception. The cultivation and fostering of special set-apart worlds allows intact remembrances and suspended involvement within that which would otherwise seem useless, off to the side, antiquated and perhaps somewhat crazy.
Only when we feel safe to drop into the deeper secret place do we live the domain of this degree. The rest of the time, it will not show anything. It becomes the most extremely ordinary vibration in the world.
At night, in dreams, on vacation, in childhood, or perhaps on the inside in all respects we live a different life here. We work on inner places for the good of the planet. We explore deeply what is collectively assumed to be long ago or not yet. We become at one with everything which keeps the balance. For we are the ones who know these things, who feel these ways, who cannot deny what the voices whisper.
It is hard to live this way in certain times and places. It is strange to be into what others least suspect. Yet it is not inwardly felt to be something painful or off the beaten track. We are pursuing avidly another track, one which leads us everywhere we need to go.
Inwardly defined not by everything outside of it, but by it’s own patterns and meanings. Protected substantially. Able to keep the flame burning on the deep inside. And perhaps also tapping the pulse of the future children, of that which will magic the world to a whole new place.”
The Guest House
This being human is a guest house.
Every morning a new arrival.
A joy, a depression, a meanness,
some momentary awareness comes
as an unexpected visitor.
Welcome and entertain them all!
Even if they’re a crowd of sorrows,
who violently sweep your house
empty of its furniture,
still, treat each guest honorably.
He may be clearing you out
for some new delight.
The dark thought, the shame, the malice,
meet them at the door laughing,
and invite them in.
Be grateful for whoever comes,
because each has been sent
as a guide from beyond.
