Last Mercury Retrograde of 2012 – On Election Day!

It happened in 2000 (remember those "hanging chads"?) and it happens again on Tuesday, November 6. Mercury goes “backward” on the day we vote. This is the planet of communication, travel, manual skills, fact gathering and analysis – things that have to do with being with people, places and things. When Retrograde, the possibilities for confusion, frustration, impatience are heightened. However, we can prepare ourselves so that fallout is reduced. We just need to be careful and pay attention. It can be done!...more

What is Mercury in Retrograde and How Does it Affect You?

Mercury in retrograde gets blamed for all sorts of things, but is it really as bad as it has been made out to be?  What does it mean when the planet Mercury is in retrograde and how can you ride the wave instead of getting dumped out in the ocean with your head (and everything else) wet?...more

Hang On To Your Hats! Mercury Is In Retrograde!

Heads Up !  – As of Saturday at 10:16PM (EST) Mercury will be in its notorious Retrograde cycle.  Mercury, the planet of communication, transportation, manual dexterity, appears to move backward in the sky 3 times a year in different signs. This time, Mercury will be Retrograde in fiery, flirtatious, fun seeking Leo, the 5th sign of the Zodiac until August 7/8, 2012.  This sign’s typical charming, “look at me scenarios” can turn to high melodrama as a result of misunderstandings/ miscommunication, etc. Be careful with what you say or write. Cement plans, confirm directions, back up files, make sure all those little electronic gadgets are working, to cut down on any possible confusion or hurt feelings....more
Yes, I agree! Mercury is one of the hardest working planets in a chart. we just need to pick up ...more

Its Pisces Time!

Sun moves into the 12th and final sign of the Zodiac – imaginative, impressionable, intuitive Pisces. Since it is a Water sign ruled by Neptune, pay attention to your dreams (keep pen and paper next to your bed to take notes ) but stay grounded and connected. Over sensitivity to adverse energy or vibrations is no excuse to drift or try to escape. Be steady, be productive, be creative – which can be great for anyone associated with the arts. Ideas for new music, new choreography, new writing might bubble to the surface faster than usual. Pisces Sun on February 18, 2012, 10:18pm Pacific / February 19, 2012, 1:18am Eastern....more

Things to Be Thankful For: Final Mercury Retrograde of 2011!

Yesterday, the last Mercury Retrograde of the year occured in the jolly Fire of sign Sagittarius. The Sun already bounced into this 9th sign of the Zodiac on 11/22, so all its traits of learning, travel, education, adventure and risk taking are pushed to the forefront. Mercury is all about communication, transportation, movement, how we deal with variety and since this planet’s “backward” motion can often cause confusion, misunderstandings, snafus – my suggestion is check all lists, big plans and directions twice.  ...more
@astrosandy Oh! Man! I hope it doesn't snow ;)more

Astrology: Earthy Virgo Sun Arrives on August 23, 2011

The Virgo Sun spreads its influence on Tuesday 8/23 regardless of whether it’s your Astrological sign or not. We will all be a little more grounded, practical, efficient and responsible. This Mercury ruled Earth sign (of health, hard work and service) also lets us know that it really is all about the details, details, details.  Make plans and aim for better diet and fitness. If you want to work better or want better work, put together the little building blocks needed to create something substantial. We all deserve that and while the Sun heats up this 6thsign of the Zodiac, now is the perfect time to get it done (whatever “it” is). ...more
Yes, getting it done, accomplishment, keeping promises, but also taking care of yourself! ...more

Astrology: Mercury Retrograde, Its Baaack! August 2nd

Tuesday 8/2/11 began the second Mercury Retrograde for the year. The communication planet last went backward in March and you may recall how you waded through whatever snafus or confusion resulted. You can do it again!  Be alert, nail down exactly when that bus/train/plane is scheduled to leave. Make sure your PC/iPhone/iPad/Mobile, etc. is in top form and kept charged. Also, if your gas gauge shows “E”, believe it. Mercury Retrograde, which started 11:50Pm Eastern / 8:50PM Pacific, is not the time to test your luck. Instead of Margo Channing’s classic line, “Fasten your seatbelt. Its’ going to be a bumpy night”, it’s actually going to be a “bumpy” 26 days.  (btw: the quote is from the movie All About Eve.  It was on TV a few weeks ago – love it.)  ...more
That could work - just remember to watch where you're running (and make sure your cell/mobile is ...more

But to answer your question= regardless ...more
