Mercury Retrograde is upon us from September 17 - October 9, 2015 with the element it resides in being air in the sign of Libra.
Those who don't 'believe in astrology' need read no further. This is definitely not a blog for you. Mind you, it really couldn't hurt to read on. Who knows, you might learn something.
I haven't always understood Mercury Retrograde and when I did begin to understand this time and what it offers, I haven't always appreciated it. Now that I am in a place of comprehension of this time and it's ways I find myself realizing that just because I might be more comfortable working in these energies for what they offer, some are not where I am in this understanding.
That being said there was a large miscommunication during this cycle which has brought about some pain to me, adding insults to injury.
My only way to heal is through prose.
My heart is broken but the lessons are not lost on me.
The Severed Plank
A moment of silence and pause to reflect
Should never be considered a hardship to give.
True care and love is not measured by time.
But by the fruits of this life that we live.
Not one who loves will push you to see
A hardship not yours to take on
None would allow the pain to break through
From something detached and not touched upon.
None would take words made from love and care
And twist them and taint them to suit.
None would destroy the poets reprise,
Nor spoil and rotten the fruits.
One would take care to hear what was said
When beckoned to understand something strained
One with the claim of love and kinship would pause
To see that all of the trust and safety remained.
One would not point and accuse the weak
That's heart had dropped out to the floor
One would not harm a wounded creature
Forcing slamming and locking of doors.
Shown a path of safety, a connection o'er the stream
Incomplete so the travelers cannot cross.
A blockade or a hole in the foundation not there
A place where there's instability and loss.
Some take from the tree and never plant a seed
Some take from the shelters of the meek.
Some come to a place where the well offers love.
And pour toxins onto the kinship they seek.
Weep not for the days where the lights went out
Weep not for the days of being misunderstood.
Sort the house and the life where you live and love in.
There's no time to prove outward who's good.
