Mercury Retrograde in Gemini and Mindfulness

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini and Mindfulness

I run a free group on Facebook where the members are able to express themselves and ask questions in a less public space. Louise Edington’s Cosmic Connections (please join us if you are not already a member) is an active community and I get some quite deep questions in there. As we wane to the New Moon in Taurus and Mercury stations to turn retrograde in Gemini a member posted the following. “When have we not been asked to slow down and do inner work, really? I am finding that starting to cause me turmoil as I have daily work to accomplish and now I am battling my mind to be productive and do my inner work. We can’t stop tasks that drive our businesses, so help us recognize what’s a balance of slow down and still not close our doors. I am truly battling how to shift from slowing down and dealing with inner to the pace needed to consistently move forward in business. We are such complex beings and I am feeling overwhelmed with fact I’d like to work on ONE at a time.”   Of course this sparked my own inner review process and this blog post was birthed. What IS the message of this retrograde period? I have had my usual Mercury Retrograde rant about working with the energies and not fearing it in my Mercury Retrograde in Gemini post. I also say that life can’t stop for something that happens 3 and sometimes 4 times a year. No, we can’t stop doing the tasks that drives our businesses and lives. That would just be...

Mercury Retrograde in Gemini

Mercury Retrograde I barely dare utter those words as I expect the moans and groans to start. We entered the ‘shadow’ yesterday as Mercury reached 4° 33′ of Gemini which is the degree that Mercury will return to during the retrograde period. Not that the planet actually turns backwards, this is apparant backward motion from our perspective. The trickster actually stations to turn retrograde on the 18th and 19th May right after the next New Moon. I shall be talking about this on my New Moon Intention Call on Friday May 8. If you would like to join me please register here for call details and to receive the recording. The first thing I want to say is DO NOT BE AFRAID! All the planets go retrograde and Mercury goes retrograde three (and occasionally four) times a year. It’s a phenomenom to work with rather than resist and fear. It has a purpose. Mercury rules communication, motion, activity, cars/transportation and mechanics, the internet, information, contracts, writing and speaking. And siblings. All of these areas are up for review, reflection, redoing, re-organizing and rethinking. And in Gemini, which Mercury rules, this is likely to be powerful. And I mean that in a positive way! Use this time to look at things a little differently and it’s highly likely that you will receive some important inner revelations. It’s a time of heightened mental awareness, a time to go within and rethink a few things. It’s not the time to communicate the revelations outwardly perhaps, as communications are clouded. Things may be misheard. By both you and others. Slow down and pay attention...
Are You Ready For Powerful Conversations?

Are You Ready For Powerful Conversations?

I had a coach once who used to talk about powerful conversations.   Deeply authentic sharing with no attachment to outcome What does that mean? It means digging deep and sharing the feelings we usually keep hidden. It means owning up to where we have not been fully open. It means not assuming or worrying what the response or reaction will be. It means delving into the depths of your soul and being vulnerable. I had one of those conversations this morning. It’s one of the things that’s going to come up. If you are doing the work. If you are slowing down and going within with the stationing Mercury retrograde. If you are feeling the DESIRE for change that’s coming from the current Grand Trine in Fire. Seeking your truth, wanting more joy in your life, wanting to move deeper into partnership with others. If you are feeling the Full Moon Eclipse approaching. And if you are paying attention.   And that’s what’s at the depth of the building energies.   They are breaking us wide open. Exposing our hearts and souls.   Where is the ‘I’ in the ‘we’? That’s the BIG question.   It all came up for me this morning. I bared my soul to my husband. We reflected on my place in the we that is our family unit. We powerfully talked about how we see each other. How we can better move forward in PARTNERSHIP.   It feels deeper already.   And this is what I invite you to do.   Reflect on your place in the ‘we’ - whatever that means for...
The Power of Scorpio

The Power of Scorpio

We probably all know by now that we are in Mercury Retrograde. In fact I wrote about it in Mercury Retrograde and First World Problems. In Scorpio this is powerful and deep and the Scorpio energy is about to get stronger so I thought it was time to write about the power of Scorpio generally and how to manage and benefit from this energy.   Later today (22nd October 2013) the sun will move into Scorpio shining it’s light on this powerful energy. We’ll have Sun, North Node of Fate, Saturn and Mercury all in this powerful water sign. And then, on Nov 3 we also have a Solar Eclipse at 11 degrees Scorpio. Added to this, Scorpios ruler Pluto is in a powerful square with Uranus in Aries. I’ll go more into what each of these means over time in my weekly video reports that I email out to my subscribers so if you want even more information about this and other upcoming energies sign up now over on the right!   As I said in my previous post we are being asked to have some really deep, deep reflection time right now. But reflect on what?   Enough of the astrology and more about the feeling because Scorpio IS a water sign and is ALL about feeling.   Scorpio energy is about deeply bonded relationships. It’s about power and powerlessness. It’s passion and resourcefulness. It’s intensity and magnetism. It’s manipulation and obsession. It’s jealousy and loyalty. Scorpio is deeply sensitive and intuitive. Scorpio is secretive and private.   Scorpio is the realm of the deep psyche, therapy,...
