Mercury, the planet of communication, will go retrograde on October 21st. Introspection and self-examination are requirements of this Mercury retrograde in the sign of Scorpio. Do use this opportunity to consciously clear up and re-direct your thoughts and energies to what your soul and heart really want you to be and do. As with all Mercury Retrogrades, plans and communications will take you on an Alice in Wonderland journey. This being a very passionate, emotional one, please remember to remain centered and grounded, no matter what. 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 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) Do slow your pace—you’ll make more progress if you’ll just focus on the task at hand. You’re doing all you can do to make a success of yourself and your projects, so keep your eyes on the prize, and trust God to guide your pace and your footsteps. By your birthday, you’ll be the recipient of a blessing from an unexpected source.
THE EMPRESS (April 21 – May 20) This is a very prolific time for you. The steps you take on this part of your journey lead to a very productive phase in your life. You’re clearing away the rubble of the past and opening a wide path that leads you straight to the fulfillment of your hopes, wishes and dreams. During this journey, it’s important to pay attention to the wisdom of the elders of your ‘tribe’ because their insights are blessed with Divine Assistance. You will receive important information—use it wisely.
THE LOVERS (May 21 – June 20) The adage, “Know Thyself,” has timeless value. From this simply worded fountain of wisdom, all other forms of wealth and possibility spring. As you more deeply know and appreciate who you are and what makes you tick, you’ll also allow yourself to embrace what works and to effortlessly release what doesn’t.
THE CHARIOT (June 21 – July 20) Notice what’s going on around you. Are others comfortable with the trauma-drama swirling around them? Now ask yourself, “Am I in some way a reflection of them as they dance to potentially self-destructive tunes?” If your answer is yes, be the hero of your own life, put your Chariot in motion and take a different route—you’ll be a winner if you do!
THE SUN (July 21 – August 22) If you feel like sliding into complacent stagnation—DON’T! Despite how things may appear, this is the time to take decisive action that will shift the position you hold in life. Do re-assess yourself and your goals on every level. Then, do what is required to manifest your new vision. Find a Life Coach who will help guide you through this life altering time.
THE HERMIT (August 23 – September 22) Mercury is your ruling planet and with it going retrograde, this is a good time to sort through your belief system in order to discover what is yours and what was given to you by others because it was what they had come to believe about life. By so doing, you’ll clearly see and be able to create based on your own personal truth.
JUSTICE (September 23 – October 22) The opportunities to advance yourself in your world have never been stronger. Observe what’s going on around you and evaluate the information by asking yourself, “What is my ‘gut’ feeling about this person, project or situation?” Let your intuition answer and listen to it! Trust and go with your feelings—you’ll be happy with the results!
THE MAGICIAN (October 23 – November 21) It’s time to stop and reflect. Re-examine with your heart and mind, your goals, your efforts to bring them to fruition, what’s worked and what hasn’t so far and where you’ve been honest (as well as dishonest!) with yourself. What you’ll discover will clear the energetic debris and enable you to powerfully focus your energy and achieve the success that is your natural birthright.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (November 22 – December 21) You’ve heard the old saying, “You can’t have your cake and eat it, too.” There are only two responses to that—“Get real, why bother to get the cake if I can’t eat it!?” and “Who do you think you are to talk to me that way?” Remember, you worked for it, it’s your cake—enjoy it!
THE WORLD (December 22 – January 19) Sit back and reflect on what you’ve just experienced and triumphed over. Enjoy the rest as you acknowledge and congratulate yourself for coming through an intense time and for being true to your inner vision. Continue believing in yourself and following your inner guidance—you’re discovering and claiming rich, new personal territory.
THE STAR (January 20 – February 19) Analyzing your situation, weighing your options and living in theory will no longer serve you. You’re between a rock and a hard place now and you can’t go back to the past or divert your energy and attention with distractions—you must take action and move on! The only obstacles are the limitations you impose on yourself.
THE MOON (February 20 – March 20) Behind each current challenge is the opportunity to consciously experience that you are not powerless and undeserving of living from your birthright of rich spiritual, emotional, mental and physical health and wealth. You must ignore the nay-sayers and allow yourself to continue on your path. By next Spring, you’ll have something wonderful to cheer about!
