This!

This #mercuryretrograde is in #virgo . SMACK. BANG. IN. THE. MIDDLE. OF. ECLIPSE. SEASON. Virgo rules digestion. It governs the assimilation, dissection & processing of information. It’s an earth sign that wants to materialise, manifest & produce something from what it assimilates. .
This means that we’re dealing with our own shit. The #eclipse is highlighting aspects of ourselves, our society, our communities that are hard to look at. What’s being exposed can be hard to digest…both personally & publicly…& yet sitting in our own shit is the only way out of it.
.
This white supremacist dialogue is not in an American vacuum. Not growing up in America & not being American I am all too aware of the dominant American agenda & rhetoric. But this is more than that. This time, these events, these revelations, this exposure can be utilised for the benefit of everyone. .
This eclipse is traveling across the US, highlighting the shit, giving us all opportunity to see how complicit we are, wherever we are.
.
Virgo has amazing powers of discernment that are best used in service to others. It’s no coincident that this is all happening right now. Holding on to your shit is toxic, & anyone who’s healed anything knows that you have to dive deep before you can reemerge. Mercury Rx is a time to reevaluate, reassess, relearn. Take the time to thoroughly digest what is coming up & make use of what you learn.

This is as true of our spiritual journey as it is of our sacred activism and dismantling systems of oppression.

Critics of my open letter to spiritual white women on white supremacy have accused me of fueling hatred, shame, division and reverse racism (!) through the points I have made in my letter. However I know that at no point did I say anything to the effect of ‘I hate white women’ or ‘white women should be ashamed of themselves’. As I mentioned at the beginning of the letter, the vast majority of the women I serve through my business happen to be white women. I wrote this letter not as an accusation, but as an invitation…Please read full post @wildmysticwoman ~ #fuckwhitesupremacy#thisisourshit

This puts me in a very odd but unique position to speak on some of today’s issues to my particular audience.

Following what happened over at the weekend in Charlottesville USA, I was compelled to write. I had no idea what would come forth but here’s part one.

Mercury Retrograde in Virgo

Mercury is retrograde & the view behind is just as busted as the mirror itself.
.
Every Retrograde cycle gives us opportunity to review the past, to get so irritated with complications that we change things…& this cycle, being in hard working #virgo wants us to get real…to put our feet on the ground & put those busy-Virgo-brain thoughts into action.
.

Mercury has close ties with Neptune this time around, prompting us to work meticulously through the smoke & mirrors to see what our dreams are really made of…who’s back are they built on…& what lies behind the reality of dream building. Every colonised country has a nationalistic dream that encourages us to not look backward, to not question the foundations underfoot & to defend that dream that is rightfully yours.
.
🛑 Stop. Go back.
.
This Mercury Rx ends its journey at a #leointersection with #Mars. All of this plays into the narrative now. Intersections are where we find the most violence, both politically & physically (on the road). Contrary energies converge at one point & in times of our greatest challenges, all lights are green. 🚦
.
#leoseason is often loud & unavoidable, & this particular season has the dial turned up to 10 so you don’t miss the memo! If your dream is built on white supremacy, peace-out-blinkers, yolo moments of self importance, living & supporting the colonial dream, you know your foundation blocks are wobbling right now.
.
All over the planet POC are reminded on the daily that they are not safe in their home, on their homelands, while under protection of the law & under white law. Nothing on the news right now is new, it’s been conveniently hidden behind the obnoxious noise of #systemicracism & the white dream. #youvebeenliedto
.
There’s no avoiding responsibility – both personally & politically…& when this Rx cycle ends you will need to know which way your sword faces & to what lengths you’ll go to defend the side of history you’re standing on. ⚔️ #fuckwhitesupremacy#blacklivesmatter #whichsideareyouon#alloppressionisviolence #justiceforelijah#nojisticenopeace #eclipseseason#mercuryretrograde ⚖️
