Aaaaaaassaah it’s election day!
Anyone else have weird dreams last night? I can’t remember the details but there were some strange alliances afoot.
The Hermit is one of my favorite cards, and here we see it with the wren. There is a commonly known passerine bird called the hermit thrush, and I did some research to see if there is also a hermit wren. Indeed:
“The hermit wood wren or Santa Marta wood wren is a species of bird in the family Troglodytidae. It is endemic to Colombia.” -Wikipedia
In California, house wrens often live side by side with people in our mailboxes, sheds, custom birdhouses and other man-made structures.
This card combo speaks to resourcefulness on the home front, and encourages to use the lingering full Taurus moon energy to navigate the next week or so as Mercury stations direct (today!).
When a planet ends its retrograde period it slowly ramps up to its usual transit speed. What Mercury leaves behind is missed connections, missing items, miscommunication, misunderstanding, etc. Things should become more clear as we progress through the month but that does not translate into easy. A lot of proverbial sh!t still has to hit the fan.
Given the sheer volume of unknown right now, it is crucial to stabilize what you can in terms of budget and business relationships. If you feel you are in an area where racial (or any kind) of unrest is a possibility you should be thinking of a safety plan. Decide where your threshold lies and be ready to firmly uphold your physical and emotional boundaries.
We are in uncharted territory and must rely on our own intuition and insight to make good decisions for ourselves, our loved ones, and the collective at large.
The Hermit holds a lantern of inner knowing, and with it illuminates the path forward. Regardless of the election results, some things will not change: the wonder of birdsong in the bush, the pleasure of seeing a sunrise, the beauty of butterflies and changing fall leaves.
Be prepared, my friends, be engaged but also be joyous. You must continue to cultivate your inner light so that is is strengthened against the winds of change.
