This week, Kabbalistically, we are in the portion of the Torah called ‘mishpatim’. This is one of the most predominant weekly portions amongst Kabbalistic scholars because the lesson is about slavery and the laws of cause and effect. The word ‘mishpatim’ means ordinances. In essence, it is about the laws that govern the universe. The insight of this particular portion is the realization that there are two realities – one reality being slavery to the material world and our emotions and the other reality being spirituality and our connection to the light. So, we are given an opportunity this week to choose whether we are slaves or spiritually free.
Yesterday, I wrote at length about aspects weaving into one another. Our current set of aspects began with the Venus – Mars square that occurred earlier in the month and has continued until we finally arrived at today’s aspect which is Mercury square Saturn. Venus – Mars brought to the surface problem areas in our relationships, Mercury sextile Uranus and Mercury trine Mars provided us with the insight to change our situation combined with the action to resolve our difficulties. However, Mercury square Saturn can often lead us to slipping back into our old behavioral patterns (often without realizing it) because they are familiar and easy.
How many times have you begun a new course or decided to behave in a different way or decided that a particular way someone was behaving was unacceptable? How many times have you created boundaries in your life only to slip back into old patterns a few days later? Although it may feel easier at the time, usually we feel guilty when the same problems begin to occur again in our lives. Mercury square Saturn is a test of whether or not we have the courage of our convictions. This is a very challenging aspect because Mercury rules the mind and Saturn rules limitations, and when the two get together one can often feel depressed, at odds with themselves, deeply conflicted, and can have great difficulty expressing themselves to others. This can lead us to seek solace of our past behavior patterns. This can be extremely problematic and can often lead us from a place of “freedom” back into the fettered clutches of slavery.
