Discipline and Freedom

A couple of days ago I did two Colour and Astrology readings and both people picked the same bottle from the Colour Mirrors system as their first choice in a sequence: Mercury, this green bottle number 5.

This meaning of this bottle connects to discipline and freedom and has rather an interesting resonance with the movement of both Mars and Saturn (discipline and restriction) into Aquarius (freedom) today. Green is about space and harmony, encouraging us to focus on bringing harmony into our space, rather than railing against the confinement. One could connect both Mars and Saturn with the military. The Aquarian energy could go along with some unexpected developments (f we haven’t had enough of those already!). The message of green is trust.

Green is the antidote and complementary colour to red, as reflected in the heightened, highly stressed energy of the New Moon of 24th March in Aries conjunct Chiron, planetoid of pain, health and healing.

Green is about panoramic awareness, newness, transition and springtime.

Here are Melissie Jolly’s words that go along with the green Mercury bottle.

“This bottle links to Gemini: movement, communication and versatility. It relates to those who are mercurial and quick-minded, with a sense of feeling that is swifter than logic. Begin to be the magician; the old pattern of being the trickster no longer serves you. All has to be upfront and clear in your dealings. The number five relates to issues of discipline and freedom, and the colour green signifies change and new beginnings. This bottle is about letting go of all the masks: everything you have used to hide behind has to be removed. The truth about your magnificence has to be told clearly, and if any part of you still wants to hide, it will make life quite difficult. The answer to the dilemma that this bottle presents is to be constantly aware of what makes you feel small and change that. This is your time. You can only be free by being honest with yourself.”
