2017 Mercury Retrograde in Sagittarius


You may have heard friends say, "Oh, no! Mercury is about to retrograde again." If you don’t know astrology, you may have wondered what they were talking about. Of all planetary aspects, this one seems to garner the most attention from clients, and it certainly generates the most mail.

The reason for their interest is clear – this phenomenon is one of the few that affects everyone in a fairly uniform way, and its effects are always obvious.  Once you begin to pay attention to how events in your life change during these phases, you will soon see how important it is to take note of them.

Keeping track of Mercury retrograde periods can allow you to increase your productivity and avoid at least some of the frustration they can bring about.

Does Mercury really move backwards?

Mercury doesn’t actually move backward. If you do a bit of stargazing, you will see that Mercury appears to move backwards, just as the ancient astrologers perceived thousands of years ago. After a while – in Mercury’s case, a three-and-a-half-week period – the planet will reverse itself and move “forward” again.

Because Mercury is the planet situated closest to the Sun, its orbit is much shorter than Earth’s. About three or four times a year, Mercury speeds past Earth, and that is when we experience a Mercury retrograde period. If you were in a car and another car passed you, you could tell it was going faster than you.

But if it slowed down and you then passed it, it would appear that that car was actually going backward. Then when the other car speeds up and passes you again, it kicks up all of the dust in the road. As Mercury speeds by, it is like a train flying past, creating a powerful, turbulent gust of “wind” in its wake. The turbulence and disruption Mercury creates when it retrogrades can affect what we feel on Earth in our everyday lives.

In astrology, we always believe the following rule is true: “As above, so too below.” By that we mean there is a fractal relationship between the orbits in the heavens and human activity down here on Earth. This idea pervades all of astrology and is a very good concept to keep in mind.

Areas of life Mercury rules

Mercury rules all types of communication, including listening, speaking, learning, reading, editing, researching, negotiating, selling, and buying. Mercury also rules all formal contracts and agreements, as well as important documents such as book manuscripts or term papers, agreements, deeds, contracts, leases, wills, and so forth.

Included under this planet’s domain are all types of code, including computer codes, as well as transportation, shipping, and travel. When this planet retrogrades, these areas tend to get scrambled or spin out of control.

Why does this happen? When a planet retrogrades, astrologically it is in a resting or sleeping state. Therefore, while Mercury naps, the activities that it governs don’t have the benefit of a well-functioning, wide-awake planet to supervise them. Expect a certain degree of pandemonium to ensue!

What you should – and should not – do during a Mercury Retrograde

Don’t make any important moves when Mercury is retrograde. Nothing will be settled successfully for the future during these periods anyway – you will find it nearly impossible to nail down a plan. During a retrograde period, it is hard to get decisions from others. Even if a decision is made, it will be subject to change, either just after Mercury turns to direct motion or much later.

Mercury retrograde periods would not be good times to do anything involving communications, such as launch a magazine, website, or an advertising or publicity campaign.

These phases are also considered poor times to launch any new endeavors, even if they are not related to the communications industries.

Similarly, a retrograde period is not a good time to sign any contracts or even to shake hands on any new agreements. Do not close on a house during this time nor sign a lease. Verbal agreements are considered the same as written ones. The environment will be quite fluid and changeable, no matter what you are told or what you think.

It’s not that the people you are dealing with are necessarily duplicitous. It’s just that nobody can fully predict what conditions will be like later. If you start a new job, it won’t necessarily be the position you thought it was when you accepted it.

If you are a manager, you will have difficulty choosing the right candidate for the job, so, if you can, hold off hiring anyone. If you buy a house, problems could crop up later that were completely unanticipated.

Do not plan elective surgery when Mercury, Venus, or Mars are retrograde

Of course, if you have an emergency, you must have surgery. At other times in life, we do have a choice about when to schedule an operation or procedure. In those cases, such as having plastic surgery, it is best to avoid Mercury retrograde periods. These are periods where mistakes are more prone to happen than at other times, or when judgment is off. Your surgeon is under the same conditions as you, so I would suggest waiting.

I would also strongly suggest that you avoid plastic surgery when Venus retrogrades, because Venus rules beauty, and the whole purpose of the surgery is to improve your looks.

Mars rules the whole area of surgery, so you would ideally want Mars to be in the best possible form, too. It is said not to have an operation on the part of the body that the sign Mars is moving through rules. For example, if Mars happens to be in Capricorn, it would not be the best time for a knee operation because Capricorn rules the knees. It is said that Mars will increase pain and swelling. A full moon at the time of the surgery will increase bleeding. We do the best we can.

Again, let me reiterate, if you have an emergency, don’t worry about any of these rules – have your surgery. I had to have very serious surgery, triggered by a new moon solar eclipse, on the wrong part of the body (because Mars was in the sign ruling the part of the body that was being affected by the surgery). Admittedly, it was a tough surgery, but it was highly successful. If you need surgery, have it!

What other specific things should you watch out for during a Mercury Retrograde?

Since Mercury rules the mail and the conveyance of information, be extra careful when sending important documents. If you send faxes, be sure to call the people at the other end to let them know your documents are waiting for them. Otherwise, they may never see it. If you work in an office and have to photocopy an important document, be sure to retrieve the original. Be equally careful about whom you send email to – you don’t want to send a private email to the wrong person or have a sensitive email forwarded to others.

Work: Your client may suddenly change direction on a project you have been working on and give you new instructions, which may require you to discard some of the work you did. Miscommunications abound, so during these periods keep summarizing what you think the other person has just told you. Go the extra mile – you will be glad you did!

Financial/Purchases: Mercury also rules trade and commerce, so don’t buy or sell anything expensive during its retrograde phases. Often you will find that the item you want is out of stock. If you do buy something expensive, such as a car, computer, or jewelry, for example, you may regret your purchase later. If you are buying or selling a house, expect problems, errors, delays, and setbacks to arise. The only times you can buy something expensive during a retrograde period are if you are returning something you already bought.

Technology: Computers, high tech items, appliances, automobiles, and other machines and electronics are highly susceptible to Mercury in a retrograde period.

Mercury retrograde periods are notorious for causing computers to crash and for machines, appliances, and other electronic devices to show signs of wear, requiring urgent repair. Backup your computer in advance of any Mercury retrograde period. If you had planned to install new software on your personal computer (or, if you work in IT, on your network), wait until the retrograde period is over to do so.

Mercury rules moving parts, so that can be one reason. Yet, other things happen. You buy an air conditioner and 30 days later discover it has gone on sale for much less than what you paid. Or you by an expensive smartphone during a retrograde only to drop it (and crack its screen) or lose it soon afterward. It really does pay to wait to buy electronics.

Transportation: If you are driving any significant distance during a period where Mercury is retrograde, bring extra maps (or make sure your GPS is up to date), make sure you have enough gas, and verify that you have the correct address and clear driving instructions. If your car is making strange sounds, have it inspected before you leave; you don’t want a problem to emerge when you are on the road.

Travel/Flying: If you are flying, check with your airline to make sure your flight is going to take off on time. Have your luggage well marked so that it won’t get lost or sent to the wrong airport, and bring your iPod and a good book to the airport, as there could be lots of delays.

Some people do not travel when Mercury is retrograde, and perhaps that might be wise if your trip is business-oriented. However, if you are returning to see a former client you’ve worked with in the past, traveling during the retrograde is fine. Sales people know that business is always most likely from former clients. If you are in sales, earmark all your former clients for special attention during these phases.

You can take a trip for pleasure during these periods. Actually, this could be a perfect time to go, for you get away from it all, and everyone back at the office will “feel” the retrograde – they will miss your quick problem-solving ability and advice while you are away! During a retrograde phase, you might want to travel to a place from your childhood that you loved but haven’t seen in a long time. It could be lots of fun because going back to places you knew is favored.

Forgetfulness can be a problem during these phases. You are more likely to leave your airline ticket or passport on your desk rather than put it in your pocket; leave your cell phone, sunglasses, or gloves in the back seat of a cab; or lock yourself out of your car or house. I always advise that you tape your business card on the back of your computer or smartphone case, and slip your card into your case holding your eyeglasses in case one of these treasures is lost.

I also suggest that if you buy a gift card for someone, you photocopy the card’s serial number so that if you or your recipient loses the card, you can get it replaced quickly by the retailer. (Of course, keep your receipt stapled to the photocopy. Some retailers can give you a gift receipt with the serial number on the receipt, so you don’t have to go through the trouble of having the card photocopied.

Even so, keep a copy in your records too, for your recipient may lose everything!) Tell your recipient that you are taking precautions, in case they do lose your gift and are too shy to tell you that they did! Often there is a comedy of errors surrounding Mercury retrograde!

Love & Relationships: Romance tends to go haywire, too, during Mercury retrograde periods. Couples tend to create miscommunications that in turn can cause a domino effect of errors. Try not to jump to conclusions, and keep striving for clarity. Your sweetheart or spouse could also have a sudden change of mind.

For example, if your boyfriend or girlfriend says, “I want to break up,” he or she could say later, “No, let’s not! I didn’t really mean it!” That’s because people aren’t always thinking straight during these phases. Mercury retrograde is notorious for creating confusion.

Keep in mind that Mercury retrogrades in three different signs of the zodiac during the year. If it retrogrades in your sign, delays and frustrations will become even more pronounced than usual. In this case, try to be even more vigilant and double-check proposals, ideas, creative efforts, and other plans to root out flaws or incorrect assumptions. Always go the extra mile to find errors during a retrograde. These periods demand a slow and deliberate approach.

A handy truth about Mercury Retrograde: Things are in flux, but you don’t know they are – YET

When Mercury retrogrades, think of it as an instant signal that the wind is changing direction. Something is in flux up on the road ahead, but the problem is, everything looks the same and unchanging. What makes these periods so difficult is that you cannot see yet that they are about to change, often radically.

Let’s say you take a new position while Mercury is retrograde. After you start, the company starts extreme cost-cutting procedures, and you suddenly discover you will lose some of the people who report to you. On top of that, your title changes – not in a way you like. In this typical example, you had no idea these procedures were being planned, and had you known, you would have never taken the job. Things like this happen all the time when Mercury is out of phase. Do not take a job when Mercury is retrograde, and don’t start one during a retrograde, either.

A key to the solution to Any Mercury Retrograde problem lies in the Element Mercury is found in: Fire, Earth, Air, or Water

Fire: Each year, Mercury will favor one element over another. This 2017 December Mercury will retrograde in a fire sign, so that tells us we need to apply completely new, visionary, and innovative solutions to the problem that comes up. Fire signs are highly creative and also brave and pioneering – don’t be shy about suggesting a very unusual solution. Fire signs also think on a big, broad scale, so you should think that way when attacking the problem, too.

Earth: If Mercury retrogrades in an earth sign, be very practical about finding a solution, and strictly adhere to limits of time or budget. Money often plays a big part of both the problem and the answer when Mercury is retrograde. You would probably do best by not suggesting a blue-sky idea, which would have worked with Mercury in a fire sign.

Air: If Mercury retrogrades in an air sign, lots of discussion will need to take place, as air signs are highly communicative. Talk to a lot of people and poll their responses. Do a great deal of research, too. Air signs are analytical and modern – you may hear of a solution that is so new, you may not even have known it was possible. Use the answer that seems best for you after going through this process, and make sure you are objective and not emotional in choosing your answer.

Water: If Mercury retrogrades in a water sign, use your intuition. Research can be driven by the way questions are asked, so if your research says to go a certain way, but your intuition tells you to reject the research, follow your gut. Intellect can only get us so far; often our emotional intelligence is more accurate. If Mercury retrogrades in a water sign, it’s an instant signal to start listening to that small voice within.

What if you can’t put off a decision until a later date?

What if you can’t wait a few weeks? In that case, you may have to proceed anyway. Do so knowing that the conditions around the situation will probably change, so plan to be flexible. For example, if you are looking at a great apartment, you may have to sign the lease or risk losing it. However, before you do, ask lots of questions.

If you are buying a house, hire a top engineer to check it out, or get two engineers’ opinions. Be ready for something to come up. Do all you can to extend the process: Say your lawyer is out of town or in court. Say you will be in Paris during that time!

Are there any exceptions to the rules?

“Don’t Plan Big Actions During a Retrograde”? Yes!

Indeed, despite what I have just said, there are situations where you can move forward, gingerly, during Mercury retrograde. The main time you can is if you are going back to the past, either to correct something or do more with a person you know and admire.

If your editor gives you an assignment that was put on the back burner a year ago, and it has jumped to life again, proceed!

Here is another example: Let’s say you are out of work and looking for a new job. Your old boss (whom you enjoyed working with on a previous job) invites you to join the company he is at now, as a member of the team. In this case, you will be going back to a former professional relationship that you actually started a long time ago, and this is simply an ongoing situation. In this case, you CAN take the job.

Clients ask, “Well, I started interviewing for a new job before the retrograde, but the offer for the new job was made after Mercury retrograde. Technically, I knew the interviewer for a few weeks before the retrograde, so can’t I take the job?” Actually no. In this case, you have had no real history with this interviewer or company. Sorry, this does not apply.

However, if you are desperate and badly need to find a job, take it, but realize it will not be a long-term solution. You may be out looking again soon, possibly because you don’t like anything about that new job. That may be fine with you, for at least you will have income for a short time, which is better than no income at all. Also, it is said to be easier to find a new job after you have one, so in that sense, it may be helpful to take a short-term, stopgap job.

What if you gave a bid on a house you loved and wanted but that was rejected. Can you go back and put in a new bid on that same house during the retrograde, even months later (assuming the house is not yet sold)? Yes. In this case, you have a history with the house, the people who live there, and your broker. This would actually be a good time to “redo” your bid and send it in again. When it comes to exceptions, if you have a history with the person or situation, you can proceed carefully during the Mercury retrograde period.

What if you were born under a Mercury Retrograde?

It has been said by some astrologers that people who were born under Mercury retrograde are immune from much of the mayhem of this phase, but I do not agree that this is true. (I was born while Mercury was in retrograde, and I always find these periods quite difficult)

You can find out if you were born under these phases by checking your natal horoscope wheel. The planet Mercury’s symbol will have a small “R” under it on the horoscope wheel.

People born under this phase are said to have philosophical and reflective natures that help them think through complex concepts quite creatively. Never worry about having a baby during one of these retrograde periods – it is always a good time to have a child!

Mercury’s Impending Shadow Period

As Mercury approaches its “switch point” (the day it actually turns retrograde), it will progress along a path that it will later retrace in the sky over the next few weeks. The two- or three-week period prior to Mercury retrograde is called the “impending shadow period.” If you initiate anything important during that shadow period – that is, in the time before Mercury begins to retrograde – you still may encounter problems.

If you have a choice whether to sign papers or initiate an action prior to Mercury retrograde or just after it is finished retrograding, there is no question that I suggest you wait and act afterward. Try to secure a little breathing space (a few days or even better, two weeks) from the date Mercury goes direct, for safety. It doesn’t pay to rush to do things before Mercury retrogrades. Waiting is always the wiser option.

Here is another vital point to keep in mind: Mercury is more powerful on the onset and finish dates of its retrograde. I call them the “bookend” dates of the retrograde, and static and dust seem to fill the air more noticeably than any other time.

This point deserves reiteration: Always allow two days, minimum, after Mercury moves ahead to normal direct speed before you start initiating projects or making big purchases. The more time you can allow after this planet goes direct, the better. If you can wait two weeks, all the better.

Is Mercury Retrograde all bad?

Although these Mercury retrograde periods can be frustrating, they are often useful too, for they allow us to reassess, revisit, readdress, redo, and redesign our plans. Sometimes we rush along in life without fully considering our basic assumptions or actions. Mercury retrograde allows us to stop, look, listen, and redirect our energies more productively. Mercury also helps us find closure to certain situations.

Reconnecting with old pals and relatives is very common during retrograde periods, and that can be one of the most positive and fun sides of this planet’s retrograde orbit. If you hear from an old friend or colleague during Mercury retrograde, I feel there is a potent reason for it. It seems to me that there is something that the two of you are meant to do or plan together.

We can all benefit from taking a closer look at situations with greater depth, which happens when Mercury retrogrades. Mercury retrograde periods are like walking through glue, so they do tend to make us slow down, which at times can be a blessing.

Here are some examples of ways Mercury retrograde can help you:

  • Perhaps you have been working on a project that seems to have gone down the wrong path. When Mercury retrogrades, it could become evident that the project needs to be altered slightly or redirected. Even if you did not get your way originally, if you argue your case persuasively, things might go your way now.
  • You stall on accepting a job offer, and lo and behold, a better one comes your way in the meantime.
  • You refrain from buying a certain big-ticket item, and within a few weeks, the coveted item goes on sale and you will be glad you waited.
  • If a meeting is postponed or cancelled, you have more time to gather additional information that probably will come in quite handy.
  • If you are in sales, go back to old customers and clients. You may do better by asking for more business from people who have always trusted you than by trying to extend your reach into new sales territory. Former customers like being contacted, and under Mercury retrograde, you will have the time to do so.
  • Missing objects are likely to be found. That beautiful bracelet wasn’t lost after all – it was on your bookshelf, behind your favorite book!

What else should you do during Mercury Retrograde periods?

It would be a great time to reorganize your files or closets. Pack up clothes you haven’t worn in a while and give them to charity. Polish your shoes and decide which ones need repair, and while you are at it, decide which appliances need to be taken in for repair as well. Oddly, as busy as we are, during these phases we always seem to find more time to get things done. When you clean your closets, you will find treasures you thought you lost or had completely forgotten about, always a bonus of going through things you have not seen in a while.

Mercury rules anything that begins with “re”: redo, reassess, repair, repeat, redesign, or revisit. It’s always human nature to want to hear that new opportunities are coming our way, but we really do need to focus on the quality of our work and improve it to the best it can be. Often this is a better use of our time than continually chasing the newest idea. Mercury retrograde allows you to be thorough and to perfect your performance.

Don’t assume everything goes wrong during Mercury retrograde – sometimes things work in your favor. People reconsider their stance when Mercury is retrograde, and in some cases, conditions turn out to be more favorable to you than they might have been before.

If you’re like me, this time of year reminds you of all the transformations and breakthroughs that you want to manifest in the year to come. As much as this might stimulate an excitement for change, it can also bring on a wave of anxiety as you ponder, how can I make this all happen?

Over this next week, I'll be taking you on a crystal journey leading up to the Holidays.. so make sure you're subscribed this Blog + checking your emails for a surprise at the end!

Crystals can help you to transform that stress into clear and confident intentions for the future. That’s why I’m always saying that crystals guide you to breakthrough to the real you. Beneath the concerns and distractions about whatever else is going on in your life, lies the real you who’s full of potential.  

Before I had my first crystal breakthrough over 20 years ago, I had a lot of trouble visualizing where I wanted my life to go. I was in my early 20s, I had a great job, a house by the beach and a wonderful community of friends and family. But something deep inside of me was discontent with this seemingly picture perfect life.

One day, I stumbled upon a little shop filled with enchanting items. While everything in the store left me in awe, it was a sparkly, violet stone on the shelf that captivated my attention. The woman who owned the store told me that it was an Amethyst crystal, and that it would open up my intuition. I had no idea what she meant by that, but what I did realize was that I felt at peace holding it. I bought the crystal and took it home. And that crystal led me down the path to where I am today.

In the beginning of my journey with crystals, there weren’t always drastic shifts. Instead, I found myself changing in subtle ways. The more I connected with these crystals, the more I was able to slow down, take in the moment, and appreciate the beauty around me. That lead me to seek out more of what could fill my spirit with peace and joy. The path I later took—one of travel, meditation, rituals, spiritual discovery and entrepreneurship—was all thanks to that first breakthrough I had with the help of that Amethyst crystal.

You can have an intuitive experience of your own by walking into a crystal shop, or taking our crystal test online, to see which stone draws you in. If you think a breakthrough can’t happen for you, you’re not alone.

Over the next few days, I’m going to be sharing some of the breakthroughs my clients have had, and how you can use crystals to create meaningful transformations. Plus stay tuned for an exciting announcement in just a few days!

Share with your friends! Take this journey together. Get ready for your breakthrough with crystals; take the first step today!

I was prompted by the “synchronic order” to prepare the article on the 11:11  phenomena. The synchronic order made itself manifest in this case as a client who asked me about the meaning of the number 11:11.

I concluded part one by saying that I was prompted by the “synchronic order” to prepare the article on the 11:11 enigma.  The synchronic order made itself manifest in this case as a client who asked me about the meaning of the number 11:11.

The synchronic order is how the Tzolkin code models reality in terms of 4 colors, 13 numbers and 20 symbols. According to Tzolkin cosmology everything, everyone and every event is a manifestation of the synchronic order.

In the same way that 4 nucleobases and 20 amino acid of the DNA code articulate and organize the realm of living organisms so does the Tzolkin code accurately model and describe the world of human events and its players.

Glimpses of the 11;11 Synchronic Order

In order to minimize confusion and information overload I am going to refer to the Tzolkin archetypal symbols by their numerical value 1 through 20 and I will not refer to the color code aspect. In the late afternoon of April, 19th 2011or on the eve of April 20th I received an email from a reader asking about the meaning of number 11:11.

Please note that I included the notation “on the eve of” and you will see that I use it often when quoting other dates in the examples listed further down. “On the eve of” is an important detail because a new Tzolkin day phases in at sundown. The world standard for date change in mechanized time is midnight and its a sharp cut off from one day to the next—not so with the Tzolkin cycle.

The qualities of one day gradually transform into the qualities of the next day. Experientially I can detect the gradual shift in the thematic content of the days events in the mid-afternoon. Enthographic data on Maya culture affirms sunset as the beginning of a new day.

On the eve of April 20th, Tzolkin date (13)17-2: kin 117 was phasing in. Kin means day in the Maya language. Kin 117 refers to the day number within the 260 day long Tzolkin cycle.

The number (13) refers to the 13th day of the 13-day tone cycle and the number 17 refers to the 17th archetype in the 20 day archetypal cycle.

The number 2 represents archetype number 2 and it’s always paired with 17 and vice versa. I am using the numerical equivalent of each archetype to more clearly reveal the synchronicities. The same numbering format will be used to describe all Tzolkin dates noted herein.

I won’t explain in this article why the two paired numbers of a Tzolkin date are always paired, because I fear this article is already too complicated for non-students of Tzolkin cosmology aka Art and Science of Synchronicity (ARTSOS).

The Tzolkin cycle is itself is a weave of 3 subcycles, the two mentioned and a 3rd known as the 4 day 4 color cycle. But for the purposes of this article I will not refer to the color cycle.

Note: Henceforth is this article I will abbreviate as noted; Tzolkin Date =TD and  kin= k.

The first synchronicity you will note is that the reader’s question was posed during the portion of the Tzolkin sequence numbered 111 through 119. The next aspect I want you to note is the number 17. The 17th archetype possesses the key attributes of evolution, synchronicity and navigation. Each of the Tzolkin’s 20 archetypes has three key attributes.

As you can see the number 11 is already present, the reader inquired about the number 111 and k-111 had passed only 5 day before. Next note the incoming presence of k117 or TD:13-17-2, the archetype of synchronicity.

A question arises; if the entire Tzolkin code represents the numerical matrix governing synchronicity then why would one of its components have that specific designation? The 17th archetype is the archetype of OVERT synchronicity. On days coded by the 17th archetype or any member of its number family one is more apt to experience synchronicities of the overt type and in greater numbers.

The Numerical Connection between Jose Arguelles and Winter Solstice of 12/21/12

Before I get into the thick of my 11:11 experience I want to point out an amazing numerical synchronicity between, Jose Arguelles and the date he made famous, December, 21st, 2012. Jose Arguelles is the rediscoverer of the correct Tzolkin cycle and founder of the entire Mayan calendar-2012 phenomena.

Jose Arguelles was born on January 24th, 1939 or TD:(11)11-8; k11. He was also born during the first Tone Cycle (TC). The Tzolkin cycle is composed of 20 13-day cycles.

The first Tone Cycle(TC) is coded TC:1-18. His complete numerical coding is TC:1-18; TD:(11)11-8; k:11. No other Tzolkin date has more 1?s or 11?s.

Let’s call one’s numerical coding according to the Tzolkin as one’s serial number. If you make time to read deeply enough into the Art and Science of Synchronicity you will find that serial number is an appropriate and precise metaphor.

Many promoters of 11:11 mania have fudged a key fact by saying that the December 21st, 2012 winter solstice occurs at 11:11AM GMT when the official time is actually  11:12 AM GMT. The solstice point marks the end of a 5126 year cycle known as the Long Count Cycle.

All of the hoopla surrounding the “end of the Mayan calendar” has to do with the end of the Long Count Cycle which incidentally begins anew.  Arguelles referred to himself as the “closer of the cycle”.

Proponents of 11:11 mania have tweaked the time by one minute to add more mystique to their claim. Eleven-eleven could be a valid claim had they said that the Long Count cycle ends at 11:11 and 59 seconds.

It seems that solstice times are rounded off to the nearest minute, but I was not able to find any solstice resources with unrounded numbers. Update: Further down in the comments section 2 readers have clarified the timing issue by saying that the number is indeed rounded off and the unrounded number was 11:11 and x seconds.

Each reader gives a slightly different time and I have asked for a link or source on the matter, but as of this update no one has responded with a source.

Whatever the case it is a remarkable synchronicity involving what will undoubtedly be histories most famous winter solstice for a long time to come and the man responsible for bringing it to the world’s attention.

From my point of view I consider approximations to be significant indicators whose values decline in proportion to their inaccuracy.

Eleven-twelve is one minute off the magical 11:11, but in some realms “close and almost” counts for something. Synchronistic phenomena is one of those realms.

When is the Frost Moon in November? It falls on 4 November 2017 – and it’s going to be at its brightest at 6.23am. This full moon we are dealing with the Scorpio/Taurus polarity. The sun is in Scorpio and the moon is opposite it in the sign of Taurus.

This polarity reveals the tension between letting go and holding on. Taurus wants stability, and security and Scorpio must be willing to let go of her security needs to travel to the underworld and discover her warrior spirit.

The Scorpio season invites us to let go of whatever diminishes our power and vitality. We must travel to the realm of the unconscious and courageously dig deep to face our darkness. The journey then becomes one of bringing that darkness up to the light of day, to conscious awareness, so that we might transform what is in need of healing.

Super Full Moon

This full moon is called a Super Full Moon because the moon is at its closest proximity to the earth at the same time as the full moon. This means we most likely will feel its influence more powerfully. Taurus, being an earth sign, is very concerned with issues of survival and longs for comfort and security. So be aware this month of anything that arises within you that triggers your fears around your own safety and any tendency to pursue comfort at the expense of facing what needs to be let go of.

Scorpio wants to show you where you are stuck so the potential for healing can occur. You might become aware of places within you that reflect old habitual patterns that are ready to be released. Usually these patterns show up when we feel defensive or scared. With a bit of self-reflection and inquiry we can more easily understand the roots of the trigger and begin the process of letting go.

The Support We Need

Venus is in the sign of Libra and it is opposite Uranus in the sign of Aries. This aspect gives us the support we need to break free of attachments that may be unhealthy. We are still dealing with the effects of the themes of the new moon in which Uranus played a dominant role.

Uranus can bring disruption and revolution as well as accelerate our consciousness. It’s like a jolt of lightening, forcing us to look at things from a higher perspective.  Venus invites us to greater self-love and will tend to bring to light any issues of self-worth that hinder our ability to open to more aliveness and intimacy.

The Reward

How do we integrate these two powerful signs? I think it helps to see the polarity as aspects of the same cycle. We must descend into the underworld to release what is holding us back from living life more fully, but the darkness is only part of the picture.  When we emerge, we are able to see the beauty, the joy and the love that is always available to us.

What can we expect with this powerful Full Moon?

This Full Moon is especially good for Cancerians, Taureans, Virgos, Scorpios, Pisceans and Capricorns, but it’s more challenging for all the other people.

The energy is Earthy and steady. There might be some grounding work, and finding your place is finally going to feel natural to you after a very long time of not knowing where you are heading exactly.

There are some things that you are going to want to have in mind in case you are trying to connect with the full energy of the Frost Moon. You should start by asking yourself several questions to see where you need to do the most work.

Top 5 questions for asking yourself in the time of the Full Moon in Taurus

  •     Have I been very obsessed with money or status symbols?
  •     Have I been lazy or excessively self-indulgent this month?
  •     Have I been doing too much comfort-eating?
  •     Have I been stubborn, possessive or jealous?
  •     Have I done sufficient exercise?


The message of the Full Frost Moon in Taurus is this: Re-energize your life.

You have to stop giving your energy away to the other people so needlessly and instead you need to start using some of it for your own purposes and for your own life. It is a good thing to help the others, but you should remember to help yourself as well. Find a balance between your feelings and with what you can practically do about your life.

In addition, the Frost moon is influenced by a strongly placed Venus, also known as the planet of love, is in the same place as the earlier new moon that happened on October 19. This is going to enhance the good fortune of the new moon and bring love, friendship and romance, but only in the occasion that you are patient, flexible and open-minded. Full Moons could be emotional times and it’s very important to work with the energies that the Full Moon is bringing up.

Note that the full moon is the time to release everything that no longer serves you!

The *trick* is to keep exploring and not bail out, even when you find out that something is not what you thought. Nothing is what we thought. Emptiness is not what we thought. Neither is mindfulness or fear. Compassion. Love. Courage. These are code words for things we don't know in our minds, but any of us could experience. These words point to what life really is when we let things fall apart and keep ourselves focused only on the present moment.

Happy All Hallows' Eve!

The week begins as we're building to the full moon on Friday. The full moon is a culmination or a wrapping up or breakthrough of what was set in motion in the last new moon, in diplomatic Libra, in direct opposition with awakening Uranus.

Opposition means a tug of war, so this was setting up the seeds to a breakthrough in relationship resistance, whether in business or personal relationships.

An unexpected relationship could show up at your doorstep or a friendship could become something more. This week will be a building of pressure, you may need to prepare for some shake ups.


Major Astrological Alignments in November

  • Full Moon in Taurus on November 4

  • Venus moves into Scorpio November 7
  • Saturn trine Uranus November 11
  • New Moon in Scorpio November 18

Mercury goes into Scorpio
which shows creative depth and scrutiny and maybe digging into conspiracies (possibly more JFK news) and paranoia.

Venus will go into Libra this week and join Jupiter and the Sun - which shows a focus on partnerships, and a little more joy with partners. Venus has been debilitated for a few weeks

The Moon travels from Aquarius to Taurus also this week.. showing a feeling of creative completion early in the week, then the themes of renewal later in the week

The Piscean energy is in pretty good flow which may make today the more desirable for celebrating the Halloween holiday.

It puts fantasy and imagination to the forefront and links to the deep, dark and crawly energy of the Sun and Jupiter in Scorpio as well as to it’s own ruler, Neptune, to bring in romantic, artistic, spiritual, or healing properties and invokes the veil between worlds.

For your regular daily activities it should be a good day for financial or intimate connections and anything you need to tackle through research or those artistic, healing, institutional, romantic, or spiritual realms.

If you were to become aware of only one mental dynamic, the most important one to know about would be the relationship between your thinking and the way you feel. It's important to realize that you are constantly thinking. Don't be fooled into believing that you are already aware of this fact. Think, for a moment, about your breathing. Until this moment, when you are reading this sentence, you had currently lost sight of the fact that you were doing it. The truth is, unless you are out of breath, you simply forget that it's occurring.

Thinking works in the same way. Because you're always doing it, it's easy to forget that it's happening, and it becomes invisible to you. Unlike breathing, however, forgetting that you are thinking can cause some serious problems in your life - unhappiness, anger, inner conflicts, stress. The reason this is true is that your thinking will always come back to you as a feeling; there is a point-to-point relationship.

Try getting angry without first having angry thoughts. Try feeling stressed out without first having stressful thoughts. Sad without sad thoughts. Jealous without thoughts of jealousy. You can't do it. It's impossible. In order to experience a feeling, you must first have a thought that produces that feeling.  In the absence of that thinking, the unhappiness, or stress, or jealousy, can't exist. There is nothing to hold your negative feelings in place other than your own thinking!

Or perhaps they’ll marvel at your insights and the depth of your spirit. Someone who will help you connect the dots, believe in yourself, and make sense of it all. Someone who will understand you, approve of you, and unhesitatingly give you a leg up so that life can pluck your ready, ripened self from the branch of magnificence. Well, I’m here to tell you, your wait is over. That someone, is you!

Need assistance with finally discovering yourself?!

Unhappiness doesn’t and can’t exist on its own. Unhappiness is the feeling that accompanies negative thinking about your life. In the absence of that thinking, the unhappiness, or stress, or jealousy, can’t exist. There is nothing to hold your negative feelings in place other than your own thinking.

The next time you’re feeling upset, notice your thinking – it will be negative. Remind yourself that it’s your thinking that is negative, not your life. This simple awareness will be the first step in putting you back on the path toward happiness. It takes practice, but you can get to the point where you treat your negative thoughts in much the same way you would treat flies at a picnic: You shoo them away and get on with your day.

Start replacing just a few of those negative thoughts with your favorite loving emotion. For me, the emotion is gratitude. I find gratitude attracts more gratitude and I speak what I’m grateful for every day in prayer. It can be anything. Your life. The trees. The air you breathe. Your sister. Your friends. The food and shelter you have. The comfort of your bed. You will start to feel love when you start thinking loving thoughts.

Many of us know the moment when a love connection is over, but few of us stop then. I’m not talking about reactive endings. I am talking about the deep intuitive knowing that it’s time to move on. Yet we are either too afraid, or too stubborn, or too concerned about the other’s feelings to make our move.

But it’s perilous to delay, both because we suffer in the wrong connection and because we hold two souls back from finding the next step on their individual paths. Whether there’s another love waiting around the next corner, or whether it’s simply time to be alone, no one benefits by staying in an outgrown union.  We have to notice the moment of ending and take it to heart. Everyone’s expansion depends on it.

Is your love connection over? Call me now and find out once and for all.

Because of all the pressure to be partnered, so many people walk around feeling badly if they are on their own, and many others stay where they don't belong for fear that they will be seen as a failure outside of relationship. Surely all of this misses the point.

What is most important is that each of us lives a life that is true to path, whatever that means to us. For some, their sacred purpose is inextricably linked to love relationship. It is there that they excavate and humanifest their deepest meaning.

Yet others are called in a different direction and find their purpose in their creative life, in their work, in their individual spiritual practice. Everyone's soul-scriptures are unique to their own journey.

The important thing in life is not whether we find the "one", but whether we find the path. Peace with path. It’s that simple. Peace with path.

Empathy is an interesting world, often mistaken for something quite different; unhealthy boundaries, and not knowing where we end and the other begins.

I think of how often I remained connected to hurtful people when I was younger (and others to me, when I was hurtful) because I imagined myself empathic. And I was! But that didn’t mean that I had to endure their madness.  Our empathic capacity can be as misdirected as any other ability. Just because you can feel where someone is coming from, doesn’t mean that you have to put yourself at risk.

When we allow 'empathy' to keep us invested in that which brings us suffering, when we confuse it with a boundary-less way of being, it becomes just another word for misplaced faith and self-hatred. It is empathy run amok. It abuses your gift. Better to not turn your compassionate nature against yourself. Empathize with humanity, but shield yourself from harm.

Are you REALLY practicing empathy in a relationship? Or, do you need help setting healthy boundaries with someone?

Why can't men talk about their feelings? Why do men become distant? Men who pay attention and think about the feelings they have, why they have them, what they mean, and how to talk about them are RARE.

Emotionally distant men don't communicate correctly until they eliminate fear. There is one major and common reason for men who hide their feelings and for why certain men get distant in a relationship that really matters to them.

This is the thing that many women seldom understand about 'emotionally armored' men. They often focus on the fact that the men aren't connecting with them. This is true, and they have every right to feel frustrated by this, but they also need to see the bigger picture. The reality is that many of those men aren't connecting with themselves either.

From the beginning, men have been cast in the role of warrior-protector and their emotional armor is fundamental to this task. They are so saturated in their warrior conditioning, so blocked by their emotional holdings, that many of them cannot open their hearts to love's mysteries with a true soulmate.

It's not that they are consciously or deliberately withholding love and  intimacy - some men simply have no idea how to open to it, and they see perpetual surrender as an unconscious threat to their duty as protector. Vigilance and surrender make strange bedfellows.

Need help communicating with an emotionally distant man? Call me today and learn how to get him to open up his true feelings once and for all!

There are two ways that we respond to hurt and resentment that we experience in our material life. We either learn not to behave in a way that causes hurt to others as we know how it feels or we become bitter and do unto others the pain we experience, in exactly or worse way after careful panning and manipulation. The former lightens our own energy field and is a step toward spiritual maturity and emotional intelligence, and that latter builds more and more layers of negativity and ignorance. The choice is always ours!

All relationships work better when there is an “equal” exchange of energy. When a relationship drains someone, for whatever reason, there is an imbalance of energy. And this can only lead to a chain of power games. When manipulation and one-upmanship rear their ugly heads, people play external games to gain external power and feel internally complete. Thus is attention diverted from the real cause of the pain and void that exists within us.

Spiritual relationships with all beings come from the place of an open heart, of love. When love is lacking, all interactions are based on ego, an exchange, an expectation for reciprocity; hence from a closed heart which is fearful. There is no depth in such relationships as they are superficial and can crumble under a slightest disappointment. Soul to soul meetings are always a free flow of love. Is your relationship on equal grounds?
