CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Use These Crystals To Help You Through The Upcoming Mercury Retrograde”

Summer is almost here! But this summer does not mean good news for everyone. For those who have been living under a rock, Mercury has influence over communication and technology.

So, when it goes to retrograde, it starts affecting all these sectors of our lives. Mercury retrogrades are common — going 3 to 4 times every year. This time, the retrograde takes place July 7 – July 31. This means there will be a lot of chances in passion and problematic responses.

Keep a check on yourself. And if you really want to stay protected, go for these crystals:

1. Amethyst

With the feminine energy of Amethyst, you can activate your creative forces. You can finally communicate your needs and start activating your passionate side. Writing and painting will become your way of dealing with the retrograde. Express yourself through your art.

Using it: Start with your creative projects. Meditate with an amethyst crystal in order to open up your third eye. Write down all your themes. Start planning.

2. Danburite

Mercury retrogrades bring a lot of stress. After all, technology and communication are important parts of our life and when these take a hit, we invite more stress. But Danburite makes it all so easy for us. It relieves our mind from this tendency to speed up in this fast-paced world and controls your worries.

Using it: It acts like the deep breathing remedy when you have a panic attack. It cancels out any misunderstanding and the vibration levels will bring peace in our mind. Let peace fall over you during this period with this crystal.

3. Smoky Quartz

Summertime is great for vacations but the retrograde just had to come during this time! Smoky quartz brings you luck and safety, generally which is associated with travelling. It can also help by grounding you — something necessary during Mercury Retrograde.

Using It: Keep it like a pendant when you are going somewhere for travelling. Use it for grounding purposes too.

4. Amazonite

Communication will get really difficult during this retrograde. How to get a cure? Well, you can bring in your stronger game in communication with the Amazonite stone. It will clear up your mental processes and help you express things better. It will also help you improvise when you are having discussions.

CONSCIOUS REMINDER: “Buckle Up! It’s Going To Be A Crazy Summer With 6 Planets Going Retrograde”

The planets within our solar system are in a constant motion as they revolve around our Sun.

When we gaze into the night sky, our planets move to the East relative to the stars. However, there are times where it appears that a planet is moving in the opposite direction, to the West, and that is when a planet is referred to as moving retrograde.

Retrograde motion is when a planet appears, when observed from Earth, in reverse direction. The reason why this happens is that of an optical illusion caused by differences in orbit. In the realm of astrology, the retrograde motion has severe negative connotations.

As Mercury is the planet said to rule communication, those who are astrologically inclined expect frequent misunderstandings, scheduling problems and disagreements with friends during this period. It enters apparent retrograde motion between three and four times a year, for about three weeks at a time.

This is because Mercury is the fastest revolving planet in our Solar System. Seven out of the nine planetary energies go retrograde. The two luminaries, the Sun and the Moon, can never go retrograde.

1. Pluto in Retrograde

The planet Pluto will continue retrograding till the 30th of September and it showers a real sense of direction on people while retrograding. It helps you to get over all your pains, sufferings and difficulties in life by making you more determined. It increases your ability to self-heal and recover from the wounds by increasing your willpower.

2. Saturn in Retrograde

Saturn has been retrograding for a while now and it will keep on doing so till the 6thof September. The revolving motion of the planet Saturn in an opposite directed has a direct connection with karma. While Saturn is in retrograde, people’s past will confront them and they will have to right the wrongs if they want to move forward with their lives.

3. Jupiter in Retrograde

Jupiter will continue to be in retrograde for some time and it comes out of retrograde on the 10th of July, which is a lot sooner than Pluto and Saturn. Although the energies coming out of Jupiter is not as valuable as the ones from Pluto and Saturn. But it is still very imperative.

4. Neptune in Retrograde

Neptune is yet to be in retrograde. Neptune will start revolving backward from the 18th of June and will stop on the 24th of November. It is a plant of life and positive energies but is also brings back people’s past and if they don’t confront their past, it may cause karmic repercussions.

5. Mars in Retrograde

Mars is yet to be in retrograde. It starts on the 26th of June and Mars will be in retrograde until the 27th of August. Mars is a very promising plant and it brings along with it a source of astonishing energy that mankind has never felt before.

6. Mercury in Retrograde

Mercury is yet to be in retrograde. It starts in the month of July and will not stop its motion before the 18th of August. The backward revolving motion of Mercury brings along with it a lot of sadness and grief. It makes people confront the things that they were hiding from, drawing them out to the light.

JAMIE PARTRIDGE: “Mercury Retrograde April 2017 — Heart or Mind”

12123503 - planet with nebulos filaments

Mercury retrograde April 2017 starts on April 9 at 4° Taurus and ends on May 3 at 24° Aries.

Mercury retrograde April 2017 will cause some confusion and indecision about very serious matters. If problems with love or money are the issue then your options will be severely restricted.

You may be subject to intense pressure to choose between your heart and your mind. Mercury retrograde from April 9 to May 3 is not a good time for final decisions so hold out if you can. Mercury direct from May 3 to 20 brings clear insight and exciting new opportunities.

Before I go into more detail about Mercury retrograde April 2017, I will talk about what it means to have Mercury retrograde in your natal chart then the general meaning of Mercury retrograde in transit.

Mercury Retrograde Meaning

Natal Mercury retrograde means there was a problem with how you thought and communicated in a previous life. Perhaps you gave someone bad advice that had critical repercussions, or were prone to making costly mistakes. Maybe you wrote slanderous material about someone in a book or newspaper, or verbally teased and abused people.

Whatever the circumstances of the previous significant incarnation, you come into this life with those bad memories etched in your soul. You probably don’t recognize them as memories but as déjà vu or unexplained guilt. Especially when young, there can be a repeating theme of challenging events related to your past.

The aim of Mercury retrograde in your birth chart is for you to perfect those areas of thought and communication which once let you down. As your communication skills improve with experience, your karmic debt will be repaid and you can get off the roundabout.

Mercury retrograde in your natal chart can show as learning difficulties, especially with reading, writing and comprehension. You may be a shy, quite person whose thoughts have turned inward. Hesitant to speak up for yourself, you may miss out on many opportunities in life. This difficulty in expressing yourself can make you feel awkward in company and lead to low self-esteem. You may experience teasing or verbal abuse, be nagged and criticized, or fall victim to slander and lies. Contracts may also cause problems and like so many things, lead to complications further down the track.

Mercury retrograde only last for about three weeks so Mercury is going to turn direct at some stage in your progressed chart (where one day equals one year). After a couple of years you will notice that your communication style improves and you can express yourself more freely. However, the opposite can also occur and someone with Mercury direct in their natal chart may experience progressed Mercury retrograde later in life. I experienced this from age 13 to 37 and it was very profound. I even stopped reading books.

If you have Mercury retrograde in your natal or progressed chart then you can expect to make more rapid progress during transits of Mercury retrograde.

Transiting Mercury retrograde is a regular cycle occurring three or four times a year for about 24 days. While this is more frequent than any other planet, Mercury is still only retrograde 19% of the time. This is far less than Jupiter outwards, but more than Venus and Mars.

The Mercury retrograde phase is just one part of the Mercury retrograde cycle. The whole cycle includes Mercury going direct, retrograde, and direct again over the same degrees, or the retrograde zone. The two direct phases are called the shadow periods.

Mercury retrograde is associated with communication and technology breakdowns, nervous anxiety, travel delays and lost items. There is a feel of a difficult Mercury–Saturn aspect about Mercury retrograde. You can also expect to dwell on things, reminisce about the past, or unexpectedly meet up with people from your past. While the Mercury retrograde period may be good for flicking through old photo albums, it is generally considered more of a nuisance than a benefit.

Mercury retrograde can play havoc with your thoughts, communications, travels and electronics. Take extra care with your words and try not to react too quickly in any arguments or if provoked. Take some time out if you start to feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace. Double-check all of your emails and posts on Facebook before hitting the send button.

Business negotiations will be in a state of flux during Mercury retrograde so avoid signing contracts. Some important details will not yet be available, and other parties may not be reliable or honest. If going on a road trip then make sure you get your car serviced beforehand.

The riskiest times for decision-making, negotiations, communication and transport are the few days either side of the exact retrograde and direct stations. However, care should still be taken during the whole retrograde period.

Mercury Retrograde April 2017

March 27, 2017, Mercury enters shadow zone at 24°15′ Aries.

From now until when Mercury stations retrograde is called the first shadow period. During this phase you will get an idea of the thinking, communication or transport issues that may be of concern during the retrograde phase. [See Chart]

April 9, 2017, Mercury stations retrograde at 4°50′ Taurus.

Stationary Mercury retrograde at 4°50′ Taurus makes only one significant aspect as shown in the chart below. Moon quincunx Mercury is the major influence on Mercury retrograde April 2017. A weak trine to North Node and a fixed star conjunction add very little to the quincunx.

Moon quincunx Mercury creates some confusion around thinking and decision-making. The problem is knowing whether to trust your heart or your mind. Mercury is the rational mind while Moon is the emotional heart. This can show as hesitation, unreliability, confusion or disinterest.

If you feel balanced and not stressed about making a decision, you will naturally think with your head. An example of this Mercury decision-making process would be chosing between two apples to eat.

If you are emotionally attached to either option or feel pressured in some way, you are more likely to think with your heart. An example of this Moon decision-making process would be chosing a birthday present for your mother.

The trick is to take a little bit of this and a little bit of that. A balanced approach brings the best results. However, that’s easier said than done with Mercury retrograde. The chart below also reveals a number of challenging red aspects and more retrograde planets. These additional challenges reinforce the need to play it safe, especially in relationships.

Mercury Retrograde April 2017

Venus square Saturn reinforces the need to defer major decisions about your love life and finances. It can add stress to intimate relationships due to negative feelings, distance or other relationships problems. Most of these hindrances will stem from your own fears or criticisms, but you may face the same from others.

Venus retrograde means your love life enters a fated period. Giving and receiving love and affection becomes more difficult. Old friends or lovers may reappear or you may relive past life experiences in order to sort out karmic issues.

Saturn retrograde is a double dose of karma. If you have been bad in the past, then at a certain predestined time, an event will occur to teach you a lesson. If you been good in the past, then at a predestined time, an event will occur to reward you for your good deeds.

The T-Square aspect pattern involving Sun, Jupiter and Pluto indicates a lot of pressure being placed on you to make important decisions. Ego’s will be on the line leading to threats, intimidation and ruthless behavior.

Sun opposite Jupiter brings opportunities for success, good fortune and increased happiness. However, letting any good fortune go to your head can result in loss, embarrassment and a lowering of self-esteem.

Sun square Pluto increases your need to be in control, but can also lead to ego conflicts with powerful people or authority figures. A crisis or conflict makes for an intense experience or destructive behavior.

Jupiter square Pluto brings an intense drive to reach the top. Success, power and influence are all possible but without some care there will be a price to pay. Ruthless determination, greed and corruption may get you there quicker or make you richer but at what cost?

Mercury retrograde is already a risky time for making important decisions. The numerous challenges mentioned above increase the risk of making the wrong decision. Playing for extra time during Mercury retrograde April 2017 is advised. At the very least, get a second opinion on any business negotiations, contacts, plans and most especially love relationships.

May 3, 2017, Mercury stations direct at 24°15′ Aries.

This second shadow period lasts until Mercury leaves the retrograde zone on May 20. Areas of life that were a major focus during the Mercury retrograde 2017 phase can now be worked on.

Mercury direct joins Uranus and forms a wonderful grand trine aspect pattern. The depressing life obstacles of Mercury retrograde April 2017 can now be overcome, resolved or left behind.

Mercury conjunct Uranus stimulates your thinking and adds excitement to your daily interacts and routines. The electrifying influence on your brain makes this an ideal time for any mental or creative work requiring originality. Increased open-mindedness and intuition can lead to flashes of insight and breakthroughs.

Mercury Retrograde 2017

Moon trine Saturn gives the patience and emotional strength to handle sensitive or difficult relationship issues. Others may come to you for advice on a personal issue or just for a shoulder to cry on. Traditional values and old habits can bring solutions to new problems.

Moon trine Mercury lets you see things clearly. Your feeling, intuitive side is balanced with your rational thought processes to give acute perceptive skills. You can read others easily and quickly assess any situation. Your are in touch with your own feelings to give sound judgement and decision-making skills.

Mercury trine Saturn is good for studying and catching up on your paperwork and bills. Sustained mental work will not seem so boring at usual. Good concentration and attention to detail means you will not make mistakes. You will get things done neatly and on time.

A grand trine requires conscious effort to unlock the good fortune held within. You cannot rely on lucky breaks to solve your problems. Higher self-awareness of your thought processes is required to let go of karmic baggage. Even if you made wrong choices during Mercury retrograde 2017, you can rapidly turn your life around for the better during Mercury direct.

May 20, 2017, Mercury leaves the shadow zone at 4°50′ Taurus to complete the second cycle of Mercury retrograde 2017. [See Chart]

TIFFANY STILES: “12:21 Portal — The December 21st Diamond Grid Merkaba Activations!”

merkaba gif.gif

Dear Beautiful Souls!

Each year on the Winter Solstice a portal opens and the Diamond Merkaba Grid Activates!  This activates the diamond grid within each, connected with cosmic influences that line up on this particular day.  This portal initiates the above & the below connection; Cosmic Divine to the connection with Earth, The merging of the Divine feminine/masculine aspects, twin flame soul unions and karmic healing.  This energy portal allows you to stand in the quantum field of your diamond merkaba attached to that of Mother Earth’s Diamond Grid.  This activates the higher aspects of self, the third eye to the heart chakra creating a triangle connection of heart (higher self), body, (physical and etheric), soul (Divine Christed spark within).  Your diamond merkaba connected to your DNA Upgrades and trigger codes recalibrate within and anchor you to the grid.  This is where the magic of manifestation happens!

The Winter Solstice is a day to worship the sun’s energies and its cosmic influences in our recoding and recalibrating of the DNA Upgrades and Downloads connected to the belt of photon light energies.  And right on time, the sun lines up with a powerful coronal hole facing Earth at this precise time.  Coincidence?  No.  More so a cosmic synchronicity!

The Solar Influences In Play

A BIG CORONAL HOLE TURNS TOWARD EARTH: For the third month in a row, a large hole in the sun’s atmosphere is turning toward Earth.  This is the same coronal hole that lashed Earth’s magnetosphere with solar wind on Oct. 25-28, and again on Nov. 23-26.  It is spinning around with the sun, strobing Earth lighthouse-style every ~27 days.  The last two times we experienced its solar wind, intermittent G1-class geomagnetic storms and bright auroras were observed in the Arctic.  A repeat performance is likely when the solar wind returns on Dec. 20-22. (spaceweather.com)

Planetary Aspects In Play

Mercury also stations Retrograde on December 19th for 3 weeks going into January 2017.  Use this time to your advantage in checking and rechecking legal documents to make sure all is in line.  Make sure any contracts are correct and in order.  For this 3 weeks, partnerships and collaborations should be put on hold, as Mercury’s influence affects communication, creating misunderstandings and confusion in a lack of understanding each other’s visions.  Technical devices tend to malfunction during this period, so now is a good time to check all of your equipment, down to your vehicle to make sure all is in working order.  This is a time to step back, and reflect going into your true vision of 2017 and how you wish to manifest this year into your highest good!

“2016 goes out with a bang! Late in the month, three connections occur between slow-moving planets.  These will be the dominating themes of 2017 and they all initiate during the holiday season.

First, on December 24th, Saturn trines Uranus. People with this alignment in their birth chart have a natural ability to change the system from within, because for them, innovation joins forces with tradition.  Wouldn’t it be wonderful if some progressive changes are integrated smoothly with “the way we’ve always done it” this year?

Following quick on the heels of that one, Jupiter opposes Uranus on December 26th. This pits faith against reason, zealotry against fact and religion against science. Turbulence ahead, folks!

And finally, on December 28th, Saturn squares Chiron, bringing the archetype of the Wounded Authority to the fore.  Will leadership harm or heal?  It remains to be seen.  December’s is the first pass of three, finishing in November and somewhat ominously perhaps, it precisely conjuncts Donald Trump’s Moon at 21º Sagittarius and closely opposes his Sun at 20º Gemini.

Other interesting stuff this month includes Mercury going retrograde on December 19th and Uranus going direct on the 29th.  Taken all together, the second half of this month will set up the “whole new ball game” that is to be 2017.” (pandoraastrology.com/monthly-forecast/)

So as you can see with the 12:21 Portal, Winter Solstice Diamond Merbaka Grid Activations, Solar & Planetary aspects in play all combine for December to go out with a bang!

Numerology and The 2017 – 1 Year

2017 which relates to a “1 year” in Numerology, also relates to the Sun & Magician Tarot Cards.  We can expect 2017 to be a pivotal year in the continuing ascension process and that of New Earth held in a higher vibrational frequency.  All that has happened prior was to place you and set you up for what comes next. 2017 will be an Action Year of Doing & Being all that relates to your authentic self and soul mission will be the primary focus.  This last Diamond Grid Merkaba Activation of the 12:21 Portal is the last push of this year to further set the stage for your 2017.

Numerology 2017 – 1 Year

In Numerology, number 1 represents being the number of ‘new’, it is the number from which all manifestation begins.  It is the energy that begins all actions and leads the way in new directions.  New ideas, new projects and the desire for expansion all allow the number 1 to go forth with courage, originality and decisiveness.

Many opportunities are presented in the year of 1 energy; one as a need to open up to the ‘new’ in all ways.  This vibration is very independent, and will prompt one to do things their own way.  A set routine or pattern is not comfortable with the 1 vibration, so spontaneity will become the norm this year and going with the flow, as you will see new ways of accomplishing tasks, analyzing data and integrating this information into your personal life and line of work.  A brand new way of thinking and doing comes about with 1 energy.

In closing, prepare for December 21st by meditating on this day.  Create an abundance alter in your sacred space.  Focus connecting your higher self, to your mind & third eye, to your soul, body and heart.  Fill up with this Diamond Merbaka energy, and anchor this into your here and now!  The heart chakra expansion energy has escalated over the past week, making you aware by palpitations of its expansion.  When your Diamond Merbaka activates your heart opens wide like a flower in unconditional love energy.  All lower densities fade away.  All worries and anxiety fade away as you become aware that you are DIVINELY on the right path, Divinely protected, and all is lining up for you in Divine Right Timing.  So be it & So it is!

Big, Positive things are on the horizon for 2017!  All of your hard work is about to pay off for you as the flood gates of Abundance open and come pouring in!  Be open to receiving!  For those who are here, 2017 will begin to show All what New Earth in a higher vibrational frequency looks like, feels like and is.  The shift has already occurred.  Now we anchor it here.

I’m so excited to see what 2017 brings, and I’m truly blessed to be able to share in this experience with all of you!  I love you all.

Much love, light and blessings to all of you on this continued journey of Magical Bliss!
