ain associated with speaking, writing or other forms of communication. Extreme sensitivity to communication – what people say, how they say it, and when they say it. Words most definitely can hurt you. Learning how to use voice, thoughts and language for healing purposes. Feeling pain from not having your voice heard. Using words and language to heal yourself. Using storytelling as a way to heal yourself and others. The journey of getting in touch with your unique voice. Learning to open up and talk about your problems. The need to talk about your “pain point.” Talking is painful. Expressing your thoughts through words is painful.

He (Mercury) loves to see pride come before a fall, and is a natural antidote to the self-importance, pretensions and inflations encountered in the quest for consciousness and integration. The more we endeavor to reach our highest, to become godlike, to actualize our potential, the more this figure constellates quietly underneath ready to trip us up at any point should we dare to forget the chaotic origins of our hard-won sense of order, personal integration and consciousness.
― Melanie Reinhart, Chiron and the Healing Journey

Guiding others with your words and thoughts. Playing with language. Tricksters. Court jesters. Deliverers of messages that others may not want to hear. You act as an antidote to self-importance – your own and others’. Puncturing egos with words. Facility with non-rational logic. Maverick communications. Sticking your foot in your mouth. The ability to embrace paradox. The ability to synthesize conflicting information and perceptions. The ability to reconcile opposites. No need to choose either/or.

Siblings with disabilities or illness. The need to heal relationships with siblings. Pain associated with siblings. Feeling wounded by a sibling. Pain experienced by being the brother or sister of someone else. Flawed education. Feeling that your education was missing something. Needing more non-rational learning opportunities. Synthesizing all information in a learning environment. The ability to present information in a variety of formats. Seeing no conflict in differing learning styles. Letting your way of learning take you on a journey. Embarking on a self-healing journey through words and language. Telling a story of pain. A healing journey through information and learning. Embracing a self-informed learning style. Self-taught. Taking responsibility for your own education. Creating the information that you need. Realizing that there are gaps in the available information, or in the way it is presented. Taking it upon yourself to fill in gaps in learning and education. Searching for the missing links and connections to make information come together. A sudden epiphany – and then you get it.

It is the most delightful thing that ever happens to me, when I hear something coming out of my guitar and out of my mouth that wasn’t there before. I believe musicians have a duty, a responsibility to reach out, to share your love or pain with others.

― James Taylor

Synchronized timing with remarks and jokes. Saying the right thing at the right time. Saying the exact wrong thing at the wrong time. Subtle communication powers. The ability to pay attention to information that others miss. Learning by tripping yourself up. Having a knack for sticking your foot in your mouth. Being forced to think differently about the affairs of Mercury and Chiron’s house. Non-verbal assimilation of information. Knowing that a piece of the puzzle is missing. The ability to find a loophole in any logical thought pattern. The ability to learn through multiple channels. The way you think is somehow flawed according to convention. Your mental processes are not “normal.” You have the ability to open doorways of thinking that others would never have considered. You have unique perception. You have a way of putting information together that is wholly your own. You find opportunities in misses and near misses.

It makes me believe in fate. In most cases, the readings where I’ve been really bad have usually been the ones where I got the part.
― Robin Wright Penn

The fragmented mind. Sectioning and compartmentalizing experience and perceptions. Lack of awareness of the greater whole. Learning to heal your fragmented perception of the world. Learning to bring all of your thoughts together. Bringing your various learning experiences together into a cohesive whole. Creating new learning disciplines and paradigms. Reclaiming missing memories. Extreme nervous energy and over-sensitivity to what people say. Inability to get over upsetting thoughts and concepts. The key to healing is reconciling your differing perceptions. The key to healing is reclaiming missing and fragmented observations, memories and connections. The key to healing is talking about what gives you pain. The key to healing is finding an outlet for nervous mental energy. The key to healing is learning how to relax your mind. The key to healing is resisting the urge to cut off from unwanted observations and thoughts. The key to healing is to recognizing and accepting all of your thoughts as part you. The key to healing is practicing mindfulness.
