Mercury enters Capricorn tomorrow evening (6:10 p.m. CT), and we're heading into one beast of a Mercury retrograde just in time for winter solstice and the holidays.
After the ingress, Mercury will conjunct both the North Node (2 degrees) and Pluto (4 degrees) in Capricorn before stationing retrograde at 5 degrees on Friday December 10 (6:05 a.m.). Oooh, boy.
For those unaware of the current lock-step manoeuvres of the Global Governors and their corporate partners, holiday air travellers in the United States are in for a real treat (a dried-up, store-bought fruitcake sort of treat) with the choice of either a privacy-invading, rights-stomping, irradiating full body scan or a privacy-invading, rights-stomping, verging on sexual assault full body pat-down at airports across the country.
Stevie Harper and his government, always in complete compliance with the Obamanation, have also spent 11 million taxpayer dollars on 44 of these hideous things in order to outfit all major airports in Canada - Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and Halifax. This goes along with the 317 scanners installed at 65 airports across the United States.
Just as Toronto police quietly slid LRADs into mainstream policing tactics via the G20 Summit this past cardinal t-square-infused summer, Canadian airports are now sliding these rights-violating American "security" protocols in, and the sovereignty of our country continues to be eroded under the North American Union-loving types people erroneously call our leaders.
In Canada, though, only passengers bound for the United States have to go through the scanners or have a pat down and only if they have been chosen for a secondary security screening.
Nonetheless, airports are places where a bunch of multi-dimensional hi jinx goes down, where energetic vigilance is always necessary, and this makes things quite dicey, especially for those with highly sensitive systems. Let's just say there is more to these scans than meets the eye and more going on than is apparent on the physical level.
After Mercury stations retrograde December 10, it moves back to conjunct Pluto yet again, and we experience a triple conjunction of Mercury, Mars and Pluto at 4 degrees Capricorn on December 13, two degrees from the North Node. The top-down, integrated police state manoeuvres (Pluto in Capricorn) involving state intrusion on people's bodies (Mars) while travelling (Mercury) is an unfortunately textbook mix for these astro energies. If people are unable to apply a little of that Plutonic X-ray vision and awareness for themselves here as they are unceremoniously stripped of yet more personal privacy and liberty, the slide down the slippery slope continues.
It's quite interesting to follow the Plutonic roots and see who is financially benefiting from these scanners.
Michael Chertoff, former secretary of the Department of Homeland Security and co-author of the United States Patriot Act, was the vociferous member of government calling in mainstream media for these scanners at airports across the land. It turns out Chertoff's security consulting agency, The Chertoff Group, counts Rapiscan - the company that manufactures the scanners with quite a fitting name - among its clients.
This is along the lines of former Monsanto executive Michael Taylor being appointed to a high level position with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The cross-overs between business and government have gotten the point where they are, in actuality, completely Plutonically fuzed.
So don't expect the Mercurial function to be zipping along for the next couple months. We entered the retrograde shadow November 22 at 19 degrees Sagittarius, and things have already started going haywire. Expect glitches, weighty delays, time lags, very tight and pressurized communication. A lot of patience is going to be required.
We're being kept on point here in no uncertain terms and challenged to be direct, honest and on-topic.
Just as Mercury enters Capricorn, it sextiles Venus (December 1) which has just re-entered Scorpio. No one is in the mood for any crap, and those skimming by as bullshit artists can be easily unmasked under these aspects.
Venus is heading through Scorpio until January 7, and we're moving forward in relationship stripped clean of detrimental old emotional attractions and etheric connections, puncturing wounding illusions and dissipating the Neptunian way of falling for potential over reality. If any of this tail-end Piscean era stuff is clinging to your pant leg and trying to hook you back in with Venus direct, just stay with it, stay focused and keep calmly removing it and re-directing as Venus traverses Scorpio. The Venus square to Neptune-Chiron in Aquarius and trine to Jupiter-Uranus in Pisces on the January 4 Capricorn New Moon/partial lunar eclipse is the big status report that will show us just how far we've come, so long as we've done the work (Saturn in Libra).
As always with Mercury retro, there is a rewiring going on that needs its sweet time to be completed. Conjunct Pluto, it is happening in light of ever-growing collective awareness of the core Pluto in Capricorn realities unfolding on our planet and of our own personal paths through it.
There is a stripping down of mental function, communication and transit to bare necessity. The ongoing requirement for the purging and purifying of our mental environments and communication habits gets serious here. We're heading right into the heart of the Pluto in Capricorn corpo-governmental beast, and we need our mental environments to be as clear of nefarious influences as possible as we go.
