Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius

November 16December 6, 2018

Dedicated to the people of Paradise and Thousand Oaks, CA

Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius,

The global situation’s precarious.

Remember the map’s not the territory,

Rerouting nomadic flights of fantasy.


Rethinking one-way tickets to Mars, anyone?


Re: Life’s a marathon, not just a 100 yard-sprint;

Retrospective inaction: we’ll get Mercury’s hints.


Remember philosophic Aristotle, Plato& Socrates?

Received wisdom, recycled armchair philosophy.

Reintegrating the feminine: good, badass and the fugly.

Ready for new Sheroes and Sheagles on AstroTV?


Reappraise Paradise Lost, perhaps a misspent youth;

Reclaim manipulated versions of your authentic Truth.

Remarkable archer Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves;

Rediscovering Atlantis & Lemuria, Memphis & Thebes.


Retrograde Mercury’s brief dalliance in mysterious Scorpio;

Retrieving Cupid’s arrows, restringing Stradivarius’ violin bow.


Then ready for resurgent hope & optimism? Joyful brio?

Rejoice! Shelosophers Tali & Ophi command it so!
