With Mercury, the planet of mind, in retrograde motion from June 7, and in the sign of memories and nostalgia until June 17, it’s hardly surprising if you feel the need to wallow in sweet reminiscence. All of us will feel more than usually susceptible to poetry and pictures now. Watch some old films and cry for goodness sake; it’s one of modern life’s great pleasures.
Then Mercury snaps back into fizzing Gemini and your mind may turn to stories you once read long ago. Gemini is, of course, a sign associated with childhood, with Peter Pan himself, the boy who never lost his milk teeth.
It’s tempting for all of us to retreat to the garden of childhood, real or pretend, because around us this month, there are battles raging. Mars is moving forward again and already he is reigniting the Cardinal Cross that made April rather, well, awesome for many of us. And there is nothing wrong with retreat when we cannot win in open battle.
I’ll leave you with this aphorism from Greek via Latin.
Life is short.
Art is long.
Opportunity flies by.
Experiment is perilous,
and decision difficult
