As usual under Mercury Retrograde, sometimes you think or say something...then after awhile, another idea or insight pops up that needs including to give more clarity to the first thoughts or words. Well, since sending out my Cosmic Weather Update late last night, I had a few nudges to add some to it. Here goes...
"What are Core Values?" - That which you feel is instinctually 'right' versus what you've acquired via others, whether by education, parental/social indoctrination or genetic downloads as the way you are supposed to be or behave. In other words, you have a conscience...embrace it.
"How do I discover my 'core values'?" Ahhh, many fine astrologers have noted that this Merc retrograde in Pisces/Aquarius is a great time to get clear about your 'ideals' or visions. It's like a vision quest, but a bit confusing in that Hall of Mirrors known as your subconscious. So, the usual methods still suffice: meditation, journals, walks in the wood or by the sea, psychosynthesis counseling or transpersonal psychotherapy, breathwork, hobbies or gardening in which you temporarily 'lose your self', talking to your Soul, talking to the Cosmic Mother, listening well, checking in with your body, etc., etc.,etc. I'd avoid using affirmations and trying to push things this way or that. That's unhealed ego trying to hijack the whole shebang. If you need any recommendations of practitioners, just message or email me. I do coaching in this regard as well.
By the way, the other secret ingredient in this time, and the Cardinal Grand Cross on March 1st, is Saturn at 23 degrees of Scorpio. He's trining Black Moon in Lilith at 28 deg. of Cancer, and you couldn't imagine two more antagonistic energies in the cosmos. Saturn as Jehovah,, and Lilith...sitting down and having tea together? Not gonna happen! This is beginning to become less of a factor over the next few weeks.
Next Update will focus on this amazing Mars in Libra cycle, prior to the beginning of the retrograde phase, which begins, you guessed it, March 1st.
Much love, Isaac George
