The Queen, you may be aware, has had a cold. For the entire period of this Mercury Retrograde, her Majesty kept out of the public eye. She didn’t even make it to the Christmas church services — and that was for the first time in — well, forever. Yesterday, when Mercury went direct, she emerged, looking fully herself.
Of course, the Mercury Rx took place in the Queen’s 12th House of purdah.
Maybe it was the same for you, if you have Capricorn or Aquarius Rising. Anyway, it’s now time to step out of the shadows and get active. Take the tough decisions, have the hard conversations, make your voice heard, speak truth to power, and get on with it.
Yesterday, just after Mercury went direct, another kind of queen emerged from purdah. Meryl Streep made this speech. Mercury retrograded through her house of duty, and into her house of theatre, where it has turned direct. She was doing an actor’s most important job, reminding us of our shared humanity.
