Astrology of Now: Poison Pen
Yesterday evening my daughter told me that her friend has been receiving nasty anonymous notes. These have been left in her desk for about a week.
It is a recrudescence of previous bullying but in a new form. I thought it was a perfect example of astrology in action. Mercury, the planet of communications, is in Scorpio, a sign we associate with poison, but also with lancing a boil. Until the weekend, Mercury was going backwards.
The school takes no prisoners when it comes to bullying, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens now that Mercury has moved forward. It’s upsetting the whole class.
On a different note, but still on the subject of poison. Here’s some pretty straightforward astrology for you. Yasser Arafat, the Palestinian leader, died in 2004, under a nice Jupiter transit to his angle of endings. That was on November 11 with the Sun at 18° Scorpio.
Mercury stationed direct yesterday, when he was exhumed to check for poisoning, at 18° Scorpio.
Oh and Mercury is an actual poison, of course.
