Hello Lovely People,
As today is the start of Mercury Retrograde, I wanted to draw some additional cards to do a general guidance reading for all of us. There are many articles and posts written about what Mercury Retrograde (MR) is all about and so I won’t be concentrating on that bit on this post. Please feel free to look up google or check out articles by other lovely readers and astrologers who have tons of insights on this phase. All you need to know in a nutshell is that this is not a very auspicious phase to start anything new and it is extremely important to back up important data as electronic gadgets start acting funny most times during MR. Also, review the documents you sign and focus on improving existing situations before you dive into giving birth to new ones. This retrograde cycle will last till the 5th of September.
Now, where do we begin? Ah, the Ten of Pentacles. A card that lays much emphasis on home, family, security, and finances. This card is telling me that your home and loved ones could be the center of attention at this time. Situations that involve moving, renovation, family inheritance, security, insurance, pets, children, and anything related to your home could be of much importance right now and perhaps all throughout the MR phase. Pay attention to topics related to your home. Do plenty of research before you make big decisions such as purchasing a new home, property, buying life or health insurance, redoing your space, and so on. Also, watch out for communication problems that may arise within the family. Be as clear as you can and try to avoid misunderstandings. Mercury, the planet of expression and communication, when retrograde can affect our verbal and non-verbal expression.
The Fairies are making their presence felt strongly in this reading and I can hear them whisper that the natural world will bring us much comfort and support at this time. Grounding will be extremely important for all of us. It may become very common for us to forget things and go off into a daydreaming state. Chances are you may lose touch with reality if you do this often and end up feeling a lot clumsier and forgetful. Keep your attention focused. Be in the ‘here and now’. You can go with the classic way of grounding yourself which is to imagine roots growing out of the soles of your feet and your base chakra and reaching the core of mother earth. And/Or, you can also complement this practice with including more earthy and rooty veggies and fruits into your diet, working with colors such as red, black, and browns, and engaging in physical exercise to keep your body healthy and active. Crystals can offer you support as well and some of my favorite go-to crystals and stones for grounding are Black Tourmaline, Boji Stones (in pair), Smoky Quartz, and Hematite.
The Green Woman may have a spark of mischief in her eyes but she is also here to share with us that this period will offer us all a significant opportunity to grow and manifest. Our manifestation power is at its peak right now which means we need to be careful of what we sow as it is what we will reap. Whatever you give your energy and thought to will come into being, rapidly. Now that we are all growing awareness of the law of the attraction and how we manifest, it is important to choose wisely what we are willing to give our energy to.
At the same time, do not be disappointing if situations are not going as per your plans. Want to change a situation? Here’s what can help. Focus your energy and thoughts on what you do want and not on your fears. A ripple effect will burst out into the Universe and your hopes, wishes, and affirmations will open doors and opportunities for you that will lead to your desired outcome. Bear in mind that every thought and action will be an investment of what you want to attract into your life. Make wise choices.
The Angels have sent us the Crown Chakra card which is to say that plenty of new ideas and inspiration will come to us. But don’t be in a hurry to rush into decisions. Lay out a blueprint of your plans for now and do some contemplation. Don’t worry! You won’t finish last. Some of these ideas will bring you solutions that you can apply right-away while some will offer you a step-by-step approach to something bigger and brighter.
Most of us doubt our own ideas and guidance. We feel this is our imagination at work. But like they say – If you can imagine it, you can create it.
One last tip – since the Fairies are willing to help us during this phase (and Fairies are excellent at helping you manifest as they work so closely with the planet), be kind to mama earth and your natural environment. Do whatever little or more you can to help this planet, the trees, the animals. Let us work towards creating a safer, healthier, and flourishing place for us to live in.
Sending you much love and prayers that you have a smooth period of MR.
