This is going to be a fascinating Mercury Retrograde…

Mercury went retrograde at 6:05pm PDT on Tuesday. Before you go and panic or running around like your hair is on fire (I mean, yes, people are making right turns at high speeds from the far left lane, but), let me offer you a few pieces of information. Because of the ebb and flow of…

Creating a Personal Mission Statement during Mercury Retrograde

This is a continuation of ideas from Getting what you want from Mercury Retrograde… In order to use Mercury Retrograde to get where you want to go, it helps to know if the goals you think you have are actually in alignment with who you are, so you’re not working at cross purposes. A personal…

Getting what you want from Mercury Retrograde (part 1)

We are in the shadow of yet another Mercury Retrograde. Rather than rehash the same information again (you can get that here), I thought I’d talk about some of the possibilities.

Use Mercury Transit to power your changes!

On Monday (11/11), Mercury will transit (cross) the Sun’s face. On the West Coast, it will start at 4:36am, peak at 7:20am, and finish at 10:04am. The next Mercury Transit won’t be until 2032. Yes yes, that’s only 12 years off, but still. So, this event is Mercury (conscious thought, communication) stepping between us and…

Heads up: Incoming solar activity again!

A stream of solar wind escaping from the opening is expected to reach our planet during the late hours of Nov. 3rd, likely sparking minor G1-class geomagnetic storms…

Jupiter is generally expansive and is very tied to our beliefs. Scorpio is all about transformation. Also on March 8, the shadow of Mercury Retrograde in Aries began (actual…

Oh, that wacky sky energy…

Feeling edgy or anxious? We’ve got a few things going on. (1) This New Moon in Scorpio has some prickly energy associated with it. Best to do some writing, meditating, and/or general introspection. Just be prepared, it might get heavy. Better than not doing it, though. (2) This week Earth has been moving through a…

Echoes, Water, and Fire: The Full Moon in Pisces

We are approaching Autumnal Equinox, when the world hangs in perfect balance, out of time, for an instant. As October’s Full Moon is close to the Equinox, and is therefore the Harvest Moon, this is the Barley Moon, It more temperate climes, it marks the beginning of the corn harvest and when we dry herbs….
