It’s that time again—Mercury retrograde! From August 2 to August 27, Mercury, will be retrograde. Since Mercury rules communication, transportation and contracts, when it’s retrograde, all manner of mistakes and misunderstandings can occur. If you can, hold off on buying (or leasing) any big ticket items. It’s also a good idea to triple check any and all plans you make. This is an excellent time for introspection and research, as those things that are usually hidden from view, show themselves more easily during a Mercury Retrograde period. Wait until Mercury goes direct before making any big decisions.
THE EMPEROR (March 21 – April 20) You are an adventurer and the Universe has an important message for you—it’s time to broaden your horizons. Take stock of your current situation and make plans to introduce yourself to new, interesting people, places and experiences. Enhance your journey by talking with your fellow adventurers and sharing your new-found perceptions with each other.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) With your ruling planet, Venus, in the sign that governs self-esteem, it’s time to ask yourself how you’re teaching others to treat you. If you’re feeling loved, cherished and respected by those around you—others are reflecting the great value you place in yourself. However, if you’re feeling taken for granted or worse—then it’s time for you to take honest stock of how and why you’re not valuing yourself and make the necessary inner changes that will reflect a more honored you.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) It’s that time again—Mercury retrograde! >From August 2 to August 27, your ruling planet, Mercury, will be retrograde and as such—operating as a discerning, introspective guide, leading you to a greater and more expansive fount of self-knowledge and wisdom. The best actions for you to take during this period are sorting through and reviewing your plans for your future. Save your big decisions until after September1. THE
CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Oh sensitive one, you’re ready to take some giant steps and move beyond your natural inclination to stay in your shell. Good! Show the world (and yourself) that you’ve got a firm grasp of your power by courageously “grabbing the bull by the horns” and at long last, putting an old emotional issue to rest. As you clear up this old issue, you’ll discover that you have much more strength and support than you previously thought.
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) Your financial future promises to shine as brightly as your ruling planet, the Sun. Through your direct experience of relating to the principals of finance, time and energy management of your own resources, you’ll more clearly understand the concept of profitable manifestation. Create a point system for the way you use your energy and attach a monetary value to the points. As the points add up, you’ll have a conscious understanding of how you need and want to invest in yourself in order to create the kind of life that reflects your brilliance.
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Your ruling planet is Mercury, too, and your message is the same as THE LOVERS. Mercury is retrograde from August 2 to August 27 and as such, it will be acting as a discerning, introspective guide, leading you to a greater and more expansive fount of self-knowledge and wisdom. The best actions for you to take during this period are sorting through and reviewing your plans for your future. Save your big decisions until after September1.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) Every action creates and attracts a reaction of equal power. Pay attention to the little things that happen now. Learn to truly appreciate and value their contributions to your life and you will put yourself in a powerful position of authority in your life and affairs. What you create, attract and learn to handle wisely will always be rewarding to you. THE
MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) What the world needs now is— you. The truth of the matter is, you really do know how to run your world! You just have to do it with a healthy dollop of tolerance, flexibility and grace. I encourage you to listen to and trust your intuition. As you do so, your other great natural gift—charisma—will open doors for you.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) Your message is similar to THE EMPEROR. Life is an adventure and can be very exciting and a lot of fun. The Universe is telling you that it’s time to broaden your horizons. Be spontaneous—do something different like take an art or salsa class. Introduce yourself to new, interesting people, places and experiences. Enhance your journey by talking with your fellow adventurers and sharing your new-found perceptions with each other.
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) OK—you’ve made it this far and you ’re wondering, “What’s next?” Well, “What’s next” is it’s time for you to relax and trust that as long as you keep putting one foot in front of the other, you’re on the right track and will arrive at the proper destination on time and fully prepared. Be aware, though—traveling your path in this way could lead to your experiencing unusual feelings of contentment and confidence. Although it’s been a long time coming—you have finally found a priceless treasure within yourself. Don’t try to analyze it—just enjoy it.
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Be the center of your Universe. There is so much going on around you now and many of those occurrences are blessings. Pay close attention, relax your mind and see your life from all perspectives and you’ll learn what is of real importance to your process. In this receptive, enlightened space, you’ll meet the people who are to assist you in achieving one of your most cherished goals.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Those born during the time of THE SUN aren’t the only ones who get a little dramatic—you’re pretty good at it, too. Because you’re an empath, you naturally soak up the vibrations of whatever space you’re in. When you’re aware of doing that, you’re in charge of your energy and emotions; when you’re unconsciously doing it, your energy and emotions can take you to some pretty gnarly places. Please be especially mindful of your emotions during this Mercury retrograde period.
