Are you suffering symptoms of Mercury Retrograde?

Yes , we are in a Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde is great at helping bring to our attention those shadow parts of us, parts we may of felt that didn’t need healing. Mercury retrograde is great at highlighting where the healing lies and the truth can be found. In Mercury Retrograde communication, travel, technology, equipment, travel and contracts can be upside down, backwards, misinterpreted, breakdowns and unnecessary disagreements occur.

At work, you can find yourself frustrated even though you’re sure that you’ve explained yourself clearly, people around you do the opposite and your fail-proof computer crashes. You experience equipment and mechanical breakdowns of all types even at home, when out and your car!

Mercury does rule the mind, mental clarity, talking, self-expression so all these over this period can become  unreliable, filled with misinformation where important data is missing or misunderstood. During this period we should watch for too hasty communications as Mercury rules our communications and thought process and well in Aires we can become very direct ,assertive and self-centered. Say what must be said but try to remember to do so with kindness and compassion.

Mercury Retrograde in Aires gives us the courage to take action on something you have struggled with over the past few weeks. What curve balls have you been dealing with over the past month? What repetitive issues seem to be surfacing? Career, a friendship, your living circumstance, a draining relationship?

If you  have found yourself or parts of yourself being exposed, and in order to work on yourself you are stressed you must remember that you also need to love yourself unconditionally. When there is a lot going on give yourself some space, as much as the mind wants order, you will find when too much is going on we get agitated and stressed. When there is times of stress you must remember you are feeling a lot of things, so give yourself some space. Give yourself permission to experience those emotions instead of categorising it, organising it. Just let what needs to be revealed,happen. In these topsy upside and can be dark days of stress and frustration use your energy and see the small joys and blessing in your day. Even though you may be suffering and want to go on strike, see the small happy moments in the day and the lesson in the bad situations! Don’t stuff your feelings away,

The discomfort  and madness we are going through and experience on any level in Mercury Retrograde or not there is a choice to choose love and happiness! You can love someone and be mad, you can be frustrated but still caring, go with the flow, be present to everything that’s going on during this period, and don’t disqualify it because there is discomfort!! It often takes deep courage to admit to your mistakes and it is likely that is a necessary part of the conversation you must have. We all make mistakes, take responsibility and move forward with determination and love.

MERCURY RETROGRADE in Aires! 22/03/2018

MERCURY RETROGRADE in Aires!

The Moon is in Gemini.

By the time you wake up this morning, the Moon has entered inquisitive, ambitious, intellectual and restless Gemini. While the Moon makes her way through Gemini, you will find that not only yourself but others  tend to be more light-hearted, social and talkative.Gemini in is an Air sign so thoughts and communications come into play today. Curiosity and being alert of your surrounds and the conversations being had will spark your interest,  also you will be more aware and more alert of others intentions. However, today being Mercury Retrograde  don’t be surprised if your communications or you normally quick ways if thinking somehow fall flat.

Mercury, the communication and mental realm planet that rules Gemini turns Retrograde This may leave you feeling somehow stuck in your communications in the way you think, your travel plans, business plans, home  loans and contracts.

During this period we may struggle or have some difficulties saying what we want to say, or saying things that leave you wondering” Why the hell did I just say that, i didn’t mean it in that context” well that’s if you can even manage to get the words out.

Keys to remember during this Mercury Retrograde…

  • It is best not to start new projects, but it is a great time to reconsidering an initiative venture or project. It’s great for coming up with new ideas and adventures, but remember do not pursue them yet!!! Dream, draw up plans, make list get the all the  information together first and review review review! It’s also strong time for returning, revisiting and rethinking an old project or pursuit you have left on the back burner.We can gain new clarity during  this upside down period!
  • The shortness of  Aries communications is magnified making it necessary to be especially careful with our choice of topics and wording. The chances of sharp or  harsh comments can do some damage in the long run.
  • Mercury rules information, communication, reasoning, our manner of thinking, travel, technology, logic and how we express all of these! Its our thought processes and all Mercury related things right now can be off-center. It may feel difficult to say what you want to say, and you can leave conversations  wondering if you were understood. Communications are scrambled. Expected the unexpected and clarify all that you do, travel plans, communication , instructions, save and back up your work and even get people to relay what you have just said to them to avoid mishaps. And if you don’t get whats being said relay it back! everyone is experience this Mercury Retrograde!
  • As I mention Mercury is related to technology so for the next month if you can avoid it, it is not the best time to buy a phone, new computer or tv.
  • Signing your life away for a new home, a lease, car or any contracts BE CARE read all the information, as not all the information is not in yet or could be missing. Human error, computer error and Mercury error is in play and we do not want to regret doing anything later.

When Mercury Retrograde is in Aries, our mind and thoughts are going at a thousand miles an hour! Everything is GO GO GO, we may get frustrated if people are not thinking or doing as quick as we are. Aries energy when communicating is magnified.. EEk making it necessary to be especially careful with our choice of words, tones and topics.There will be a chances that we may become sharp, blunt or unemotional when making comments and this can do damage. If you feel like you can’t get out of your head and its building up to a point of frustration and you want to explode take a breath, go for a walk, exercise and take some time to reign your thoughts! Do not let your temper, stubborn, impulsive mind take over your mind and how we communicate to others. Aires Mercury Retrograde has the ability to make us feel as what we say and feel is the right way, and have the arrogance to ignore the facts, When people who question our logic and reasoning we can act impulsively and aggressively! As my mother also told me ” Andy THINK before you speak or act ”

 

Some say this will be a time of tension, however, we need to remember the positive side of  Mercury in Aries. Mercury in Aires wants progress, answers, no more procrastination. Its time to push our self to make those positive steps to benefit our self in the long run. Get through obstacles, push our own boundaries, be selfish for once.We have the courage to get the message across and speak up for our self when normally we would sit in silence. When Mercury is in Aires especially when its stationed retrograde we have a great opportunity  to taker a step back and have a deeper look at our past decisions, patterns, behaviors and ideas from a new and possibly enlightening  perspective. Change is highly possible!

Please ,carefully consider how to manage the turbulent energy of Aires this Mercury Retrograde which continues until April 15th. Remember, Mercury retrograde is a powerful time for accomplishment if you plan and prepare accordingly. Something I really need to take note on!

Happy Mercury Retrograde gang!

The New Moon is ion Pisces.

This morning, Mercury reaches the point of yesterdays New Moon and Eclipse. Can you recall yesterdays conversations or aha moments? Was there a possibility of something being  revealed? Something that has been previously foggy and unclear. You may be surprised when the unanticipated is reveled.

The Moon has entered super sensitive and intuitive Pisces. This is a day to get lost in day dreaming, meditation, spiritual journeys, art and music. When the Moon is in Pisces we develop a heightened sense of intuition, self  and spiritual awareness. Taping into this awareness will be easy under the Pisces influence, it’s a good time to get dreaming and write your New Moon wishes. Get creative, tap into your hidden talents use this New Moon Pisces energy to create the beauty you wish to see in the world. Today some may want to be introverted and shy away from conflict and people who is OK unless you find yourself getting too deep in your own inner suffering and emotions! Search for more positive outlooks and experiences and turn your attention to the people, places and the beauty that is all around you.

With the New Moon Solar Eclipse happening yesterday did you have the chance to make some wishes or set your intentions for the month ahead?

 

Happy Friday

The Capricorn New Moon! Ambition and Progress! 16/01/2018.

 Capricorn New Moon!

The New Moon occurs in the cardinal earth sign of Capricorns at 26 degrees. This is exciting as this New Moon is commencing a new lunar cycle. This First New Moon and lunar cycle of the year will focus on the constructive traits of grounded Capricorn. It’s a time for us to focus on Capricorn’s positive traits such as being goal orientated, practicality, reliable, disciplined, to focus on our work and career and the foundations and structures in our daily lives.

This Capricorn New Moon occurs tonight at 9:18 PM EST. New Moons are occur when  the Sun and Moon join together, blending their energies. Causing the Moon to be in compete darkness as it joins the Sun and recharges its batteries,as one would say for the next lunar cycle.. This New Moon will be at  27° Capricorn. New Moon traditionally are a time for planting seeds of intention, to manifest your dreams, ambitions, goals and projects. It’s also a time to be looking at the future and setting goals. It’s a time to go inward as we the skies are pitch black, it’s about taking an inventory and taking charge of your life. Figuring out what needs tweaking or what you want to achieve in the future. It’s truly a time to set aside a moment or two, to reflect and have a serious contemplation on your life, that will hopefully bring you to an understanding of what focus of growth you want to begin in the upcoming lunar phase and most importantly how you go about reaching these goals.

Capricorn being at 26 degrees, in numerology breaks down to eight. Two plus six equals eight. Eight in numerology is about power in its self, it’s about leadership, business, construction, building and finding a balance. Eight is a Karmic number… You shall reap what you’ve sewn. The eight balances the material and immaterial worlds.  This means this is going to be a very powerful and strong New Moon, that will really give us a push to make positive change.

The New Moon that is happening in the earth sign of Capricorn, the sign of the head strong goat, resistant to external change, to stressful situations and circumstances that would bring others to their knees. Capricorn is associated with those born in January, it’s a time to work hard, making do with what you have. It’s a New Year and a time for all to start fresh.  It’s a time to get back to work and get serious.

One of  Capricorn many talents is that they can get back into the swing of things easily, Capricorn’s are great at focusing on getting back to work, to school and into routine with ease. Capricorn’s are calm, reliable and safe. Capricorn’s are all about doing the right thing, training yourself to deal with hardships and difficulties as they come, it’s about training yourself to do the right thing, to live by the rules, to just get on with things without complaining. Capricorn’s are wonderful at being  grateful along with having  gratitude for what they have. Capricorn’s energy is about applying yourself, using resources and education to get ahead. The energy is also very grounded, reasonable and very practical. Capricorn is not one to complain and defiantly do not tolerate those who feel they have a sense of entitlement. It’s all is far in Love and War!

On the shadow side of Capricorn is, it can be frustrating with there over dedication to stoicism. No self-pity for earthy Capricorn which sometimes is a downfall as being to emotional cut off and over dedicated can be very harsh and cold. It’s about finding the balance and taking on the positive qualities of this sign to set achievable goals this month and for the year ahead.

One of Capricorn’s “lessons” is that we should take on board is acceptance, responsibility, boundaries and that setting goals for ourselves can allow us to focus on what really matters, that rules can actually offer us freedom by eliminating worry and fear.

This New Moon is about releasing worn-out beliefs in mind. Releasing what must happen before you can move ahead. Making room for the new. A new beginning is upon those who choose to make room for change. This New Moon is about becoming more practical and making long-term commitments, goals and change. We have the chance to create some serious order in our lives. The Capricorn energy forces us to recognize our responsibilities, and realistically nurture our dreams and ambitions.

This New Moon aligns with lovely Venus. Than forms a square to Uranus, and sextiles Mars. If there wasn’t a better time for us to realize that we need to break away from old, outdated patterns of thinking and doing so that we can move forward authentically and for our highest best good. Because Venus is involved (like she is in all 3 lunations this month with the Full Moon we had on the 1st, New Moon today and Full Moon Eclipse on 31st). Love, money and relationships (Love, Business and financial partnerships) will be a major  focus for us, especially in regards to transformation and positive change. Venus will also advocate that diplomacy and kindness is the way to move forward with our goals and desires. However Uranus in Aries may not appreciate this softness and feels less comfortable with this idea as it squares the New Moon. This means some of us may tend to lean towards being impulsive and restlessness whilst others are overly focused on security and safety. This New Moon, we may need to master and push past whatever is our particular blockage, whatever makes us feel vulnerable, to gain an edge on our own growth. With wild, unpredictable Uranus in the mix, you may find yourself wanting to move forward but feeling held back by some restrictive outside or inner force. Not to fear, Mars will assist you in finding the will and drive to push through these hurdles and to take action!

Impulsion, empowerment and Healing is the Name of the Game! 14/12/2017

Thursday, December 14, 2017.

The Moon is in Scorpio.

Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius semisextiles Pluto in Capricorn.

The Moon is in deeply, private intense Scorpio today. This Scorpio Moon than forms personal relationships to Mercury , Jupiter and Neptune today. Today will be a mixed bag of expansion, healing and dreamy emotions.

The Scorpio Moon gives us a great urge to dive deep into any mystery that has pulled at your sleeve as of late. We are less interested in superficial conversations or connections with others and prefer one on one deep interactions and exchanges today. Emotional connection is strong on your list today, along with passion, sexuality and anything/anyone that runs deep in your veins.

The Scorpio Moon aligns with expansive with Jupiter. This can stimulate our desire to go bigger and larger. Expanding your hand out to whomever or whatever needs you. Which however can include over indulging on the naughty things in life and a huge possibility to go over the top. This very much includes our feelings and attachment to outcomes. So watch out if you start top feel overwhelmed, irritated, irrational, and ready to act out on emotional whims and impulses. This warning does include going out and eating or drinking your emotions to drown your sorrows!!! As tomorrow the regret of what you sad and done will hit you harder than today. However you choose to spend the day, you will want to control the depth and intensity of the narrative and tone of the day and those impulses.

Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius semisextiles Pluto in Capricorn. The Lord of death and rebirth joins up with the planet that rules our thoughts and our communications. This lovely aspects helps us to link up and supports our inner journey to dive deeper into communication, thinking and contemplation. Need to get clarity or shine some light onto self truths? Today is the day to get real with yourself, is there someone you trust to talk to, call them up go for coffee? Or get writing in your journal as expression is the best way to unlock that part of us hiding away or denying the truth. With the Scorpio Moon energy emotional truths can be uplifted up for transmutation and healing.

Remember guys, any connections you make at the moment with others or with yourself will be very empowering and deep. There is a  potentially for some potent healing right now. Allow your passion, transformation and  depth, to guide you and help you to move you forward on your personal path.

 

Happy Thursday!

Its going to be Yin Or Yang! 12/12/17.

Tuesday, December 12, 2017.

Sun in Sagittarius joins Mercury Retrograde.

The Moon is in Libra.

The Moon spends the day in Libra again today, as like yesterday we’re doing a balancing act and creating harmony in our world. We draw upon our charm, charisma and our negotiation skills now. The ease of Monday’s and today’s balanced Libra Moon, gives way to more activity and the possibility of tension as the Moon makes a difficult challenging aspects to both destructive Pluto and rebellious Uranus. If you can do anything today, make sure if tension arises, especially form the past to re-engage and re focus your emotions, think before you react and see the story from all sides before you act out on emotions and thoughts.

The adventurous, fun-loving Sagittarius Sun joins with talkative Mercury. Today marks  the midway point of the current mercury retrograde journey, YAY! Mercury has the ability for us to place the focus on our thoughts and communications. Today with the Sun and Mercury interacting we gain some insights or have “aha” moments, as information or certain truths come to Light, especially truths that have been hard to come up with a conclusion or closure.

Today, with the Sagittarius and Libra energy, mixed with Mercury illuminating the skies, it is going to be a good day to interact with others. However, don’t forget for a single moment that we are still in Mercury retrograde, and that means the conversations we hear or the way we interpret the conversation or messages could be a mixed bag. Make sure you hear what is actually being said rather than what you expect to hear or want to hear. Besides the jumbling of information it will either be a great day or mingling and excitement or challenging and regretful. This alignment between Mercury and the Sun also highlights or awaken new ideas and inspiration pay attention to your thoughts.

Have a good day!

Find the light in the Darkness, 07/12/2017.

Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius semi squares Jupiter in Scorpio.

The Moon is in Leo.

Retrograde Mercury in Sagittarius forms a challenging semi squares Jupiter in Scorpio. This can cause some tension between what the mind thinks and what the truth actually is. Communication, truths and finding out what is hidden in the shadows will be tempting today but if we have strength and willingness to work within our self to uncover whats hidden within, waiting to be healed is the key today and not trying to find the dark shadow truths of others. Furthermore, watch out in the way you communicate today, as your’s and others communications can be off and misinterpreted, also watch out for speaking carelessly and pay attention to slips of the tongue! As we are in Mercury retrograde and our thoughts, reactions and communication can be misunderstood, and unexpected mishaps can happen right now! The best way to navigate through this energy is to take things slow and to give yourself time, With Mercury in Retrograde rocking the boat with Saturn still, we are still feeling its impact and rocky energy. Try to take any challenges with a grain of salt.

With the Moon being in playful Leo today, the Leo energy eases up the tension in the air, as it is great for treating yourself to some fun, excitement or chase your expressive creative pursuits. Make it a priority today to do something you love. Go to the beach, see a movie, take your dog for a walk, get your energy up and active, go on a date or dance the night away. This Leo moon energy will also help break up all the intense Mercury/Saturn energy. Get in touch with your inner child, engage in the love and romance, and playfulness. Just enjoy the simple things in life today

 

 

Have an amazing Thursday.

Comfort and love is the name of the Game! 07/11/2017.

Tuesday, November 7, 2017.

The Moon enters Cancer.

Venus enters Scorpio.

Mercury in Sagittarius semisquares Pluto in Capricorn

The Moon enters nurturing, sensitive Cancer today. This will allow our general state of our emotions turn inwards. We seek comfort, familiarity, we want to nest at home and be around family and loved ones. Make your partner or best friend a home cooked meal , re arrange your home or get out and bath under the Moon tonight as Cancer is ruled by the Moon and feels at ease in her presence.

Venus enters Scorpio today, where it will transit until December 1st. Venus, the planet of love, beauty and deep personal values, enters the powerful water sign of Scorpio. Deeply passionate and determinant in relationships is the focus when Venus is in Scorpio. Venus in Scorpio can be great for intimacy, sexuality, intense interactions and taboo fantasies. Its energy and purpose is very transformational and we really want to make strong bonds and deep connections with others, Venus in Scorpio is not about a quick fling!!! When Venus is in this highly intense sign its very emotional and passionate. We look for pleasures, new passions, interests and projects. However lets not forget the shadow side of Venus in Scorpio, jealously, possessiveness and becoming very controlling. Some may also allow relationships to consume them in very unhealthy ways.
Mercury in Sagittarius semisquares Pluto in Capricorn. This aspect can cause disruption and friction between the way we think and communicate and the planet of transformation, death and rebirth. Capricorn is determined and in Pluto it will try to dig deep, it wants to discoverer any and all truths, even if they are nasty, ugly and raw. Pluto in Capricorn  has to get to the bottom truth of any matter. Mercury, however sometimes prefers to just skim over the surface and see truths from a more positive side. Today try to really watch how you speak and interact with others, also watch your thoughts! Take all gathered information in and choose to see things from a more positive aspect. Remember changing one negative thought to a positive thought causes a ripple effect in your life in such a positive way!

Happy Tuesday!

Venus forms a sextile between Saturn.

The Sun Scorpio forms a trine aspect to Neptune in Pisces

In the early morning hours this morning , lovely Venus forms a sextile aspect to mature Saturn. This harmonious aspect will help those in relationships to get real, to get deep and stabilize what you have! This time is great for understanding what your needs are, your values, loyalties and those needs of your partner. It is truly wonderful for really tuning into each other. We do have a Full Moon tomorrow which just adds to you and your partner releasing something that no longer working for you both, lack of time together, passive communication, and helping you understanding each other on the same level.This releasing can be really simple, and really doesn’t need to be hard! Listen to the messages and feelings you are getting, and hay what could be better than a nudge from the Universe to make things better between each other along with strengthening your self-love!

The Moon has entered Taurus this morning, eek so close to being at its fullest! Have you had a stressful week? All this Chiron energy, intense Scorpio energy, healing energy and Saturn energy can be a little harsh on us, so this Full Moon in Taurus will help take some of the edge off  some of the possible feelings of being weighed down, anger and frustration from the last few days. When the Moon is in Taurus we can not help but connect to nature, to yummy food and all things beautiful, it’s also encourages you to connect with your sensual physical body.

The Sun Scorpio forms a trine aspect to Neptune in Pisces. This supportive aspect with the planet of our dreams helps align our egos with our spirituality, mysticism and compassion. Be of service today, help a stranger, get creative and smile at everyone you meet today. For all the creative peeps out there get day dreaming and get lost in your new project.
