I don’t usually use the same post on Neithnet as here but this image was so perfect for the current state of affairs in the sky, it seemed like the thing to do.
Between Mercury stationing direct today, Chiron stationing retrograde, Neptune stationing retrograde yesterday and Saturn, while now direct, still barely moving, I’m stuck in neutral along with lots of other people. Maybe this is affecting me more because it’s a third house/Mercury event in my chart. Neptune and Chiron are both in my third house and Mercury is opposing my natal Mercury from the sixth house.
The Sun is in Gemini revving everyone up to talk, talk, talk but nothing is coming out! Well, maybe a whole lot of nothing. :::grin::: Personally I’m getting all these wonderful ideas that whip across the front of my mind and disappear into smoke. Oh, sometimes I’m making a note here and there but will have to review this info at a later date when the fog lifts.
This photo of a hummingbird at the feeder illustrates this well – going a gazillion miles an hour and going nowhere. Getting a good shot here and there is actually a pretty good use of Neptune in the third.
Let’s see if next week will be better than this last one.

Nice picture. Much more elegant image of the day than the one I used on a friend — I said I felt like a hamster in a wheel in slow mo… LOL :)
Have a good weekend, all.
Thanks! This has been on the odder Mercury Rx periods for me. I’ve been very busy but not in a particularly coordinated way. Writing has been almost impossible to do in a sustained way, mostly because many interruptions have prevented good concentration. My Mercury is on the 12th house side of my ASC so without quiet & solitude, I’m pretty much screwed! :-)
There is something I did in the past decade, something rather (ok: very) unusual. Along the way, a lot of people have said to me: “Jane, you’ve got to write the book.”
I’ve sloughed it off all along, always thinking: “There is nothing to write, nothing to say. It would be a one-liner.”
Two people in particular have been adamant about “We’re waiting for the book.” It so happens one of them called me a few days ago, and in the course of our conversation (about something else), reiterated how he tells all his friends (and strangers) about me and how I Must Write The Book. Last night, the other friend dropped by for what I thought was gonna be a minute, but ended up being a stay-for-tea hour long visit. And yes, you guessed it. He TOO reiterated that “they” (he and HIS crowd) are all Waiting For The Book. (My two fellas don’t know each other, or that others are making the same suggestion.)
After these two last incidents, within days of each other, by two friends who live a continent apart and are not in touch with each other, I decided the time had come to HEED THE MESSENGER (Mercury).
I’ve already jotted down notes for The Book (in bed, last night and this morning). They (the notes) are “coming to me” from lord knows what source.
Apparently “they” (throngs of people out there!) want a book. The Book. I’ll see what I can do to give it to them. Who am I to turn away a clamoring audience? :-D
P.S. — The astrology of this decision is so thick and complex I didn’t bother delineating it. Let’s just say I have a number of key transits feeding this…
