Mercury Direct!

Here's a little story about Mercury going direct and my recent astrological "Aha!" moment.

Yesterday I discovered the meaning of my north node in the 3rd house, and it clicked to me when I read this by North Node Astrology:

"Having a Ninth house South Node implies that you sought after Truth in the caught the view from the mountain-top, and didn’t understand the view from the valley or marketplace.... Give up needing to know all the answers. What you need now is to open up to new information and insights gained as you see the multiplicity of life and “truths” as revealed to you in the messiness of life in the “marketplace” or within family life, not the mountaintop."

It made so much sense to me. I understand the "truth", whatever it means to me or someone else on the other side of the world, even if I can't verbalize it or really express it. I know and I feel it. Now I need to stop searching for answers that I already know and start understanding what's concrete and what surrounds me. It just makes so much sense to me now.

I had to recognize each piece, before I could really grasp the place I am exploring.
