TODAY a rare and spectacular cosmic event occurs when Mercury crosses the face of the Sun. This Retrograde Mercury transit of the sun occurs only rarely.
Ordinarily, Mercury is above or below the solar disc, but when Mercury transits the Sun, it can be observed as a black dot moving across the face of the sun.
This is not only an awesome sight, it strikes awe and foreboding into the hearts of many people, particularly because Mercury is Retrograde right now.
Old astrology texts dating back to Ancient Rome call this a potentially hazardous time, and speak of a SCORCHED MERCURY which impairs communications and judgment.
But in ANTINOUS MOON MAGIC, we see that very differently.
This Scorched Mercury is indeed intense, but in a positive way. Antinous/Mercury focuses the gay spiritual light of his heavenly father Ra-Herakhte right at you.
Open your spiritual heart to the light and joy and permit it to burn away all doubt and all fear and trepidation.
We are reminded of PLATO'S ALLEGORY OF THE CAVE, which says that most people live in spiritual darkness. They are like people who live in caves and are afraid of sunlight because it hurts their eyes.
But should we shun the light and stay in the cave with them? Antinous/Mercury says it's safe to open your spiritual eyes — and spiritual heart — and become accustomed to the light.
