An old owl up in a tree.
The issue here is detachment. What could elicit a strong response is not getting much of a rise from you. You are still your wise old self, but you are lacking the energy it takes to pursue an engagement. What are you supposed to aim at anyway? With mercury in retrograde, thoughts can get muddled and your time can suddenly be filled with too many myriad details. Yet, your spirit still wants to confront its goals. Be careful not to throw yourself away just because you want to be close to someone else. You’re tired and that’s okay. You have a wonderful acceptance for people, regardless of their ups and downs. Allow yourself to trust that others give you the same unconditional respect. If you ask people for advice this week, you will get exactly the answer you need. We are at the end of a cycle. Soon enough a beginning will occur. Be prepared for a slow development and not necessarily one big bold move that does it all. Benjamin Franklin once said, “The doorstep to the temple of wisdom is a knowledge of our own ignorance.”
