Free Candle Spells | The Six Stages of a Mercury Retrograde

Free Candle Spells | The Six Stages of a Mercury Retrograde     Mercury, our friendly planet of communication and all things Gemini and Virgo, has just turned from its second of three retrograde station to direct on July 12th, but the linger effects of this retrograde cycle will be with us for about another 7-10 days before things really turn back to the ‘normal’ normal. Remember that Mercury is the planet that rules communication and information, so one of the lessons learned during each Retrograde is about your powers of understanding and expression. Most of the time, people worry about the actual Retrograde beginning and end days without considering events that lead up to that point. Let’s learn about all the different stages that makes up a Mercury Retrograde cycle. Pre-Retrograde Shadow ************************** This before-the-party time is considered the Retroshade time – a cosmic sounding word that describes when Mercury moves over the degrees positioning in the sky that they will be later going into Retrograde. it is like looking at the speedometer of the car and noticing that you are going 45 to 60 miles an hour, and then, once coming to that full stop, going in 45 – 60 mph again – but in reverse. This is the time that you gasp, puff out your chest and say, “Oh its ON!” The air is static with the electricity of uncertainty and this prelude to the big event can sometimes be more confusing and intense than the actual retrgrade. Subjects to be attended to and people will appear now and then will re-appear during the next three weeks that will make you do a double take with them. Mercury Stations Retrograde ******************************* This is the time when the tires has hit the tarmac and the pilot is applying full brakes to the plane. It pushes you back into the seat, bracing for either impact or a smooth slowing down. Communication is halted as everyone collects their minds to figure out what to do next. They are all waiting for the seat belt sign to turn off. Expect disorientation and the hustle and bustle of everyone trying to get off the plane at the same time.     Mercury Retrograde ********************** You have finally deplaned and are walking through the airport of chaos. It is like you are doing the moonwalk and no one is speaking a language you can understand. Expect travel delays and misunderstood communication. People from your past show up and you may have inadvertently encouraged them by trolling in their Instagram. Like your ex. The wobble of the Mercury sky reminds us of how our days are going – disconnected and slow. No one can understand you and its all Jabberwocky anyway, so the less said the better. Mercury Retrograde Conjuncts the Sun ****************************************** During a Retrograde, Mercury will do-si-do with whatever Sun is appearing in the cosmic sky. When they do, Mercury gets all jazzed like he just drank a Red Bull and increases his hi-jinks and buffoonery in order to make sure you get the full effect of his carnival ride. No slowing down for this one, you’ll be given clues to mysterious conversations and secret insights and clarity to what the heck has been going on. It gives you hope you can finish in one piece. Mercury Stations Direct ************************** Your next plane is paging you to board. You get into your seat, adjust the seat belt and look for the exit route. While listening to the overhead oxygen instructions, you start to contemplate this journey you have been on. This is the time that lessons are learned and patterns established will be implemented – or not. Outcomes from the trip are...

Free Candle Spells | First Mercury Retrograde Feb.17 – Mar. 10, 2020 – If It Quacks Like a Duck!

Free Candle Spells | First Mercury Retrograde Feb.17 – Mar. 10, 2020 – If It Quacks Like a Duck!   First Mercury Retrograde – February 17 through March 10, 2020 The first of three Mercury Retrogrades occurs on February 17, 2020 in the astrological sign of Aquarius, the Water Bearer. Even though it is in this sign for three days before changing to Pisces, there are pre-retrograde energy that precedes each Mercury Retrograde period that can also be affected by it. Aquarius rules the kinship of Man, and in a retrograde time, this Air sign can put relationships and friendships at risk. There could be the possibility of family squabbles, misunderstandings, and communication breakdowns. This will be short as the astrological sign changes as the Sun moves into Piscean territory less than two days later. On Feb. 19th, the astrological signs will change and the end of this retrograde cycle will be under the planetary influence of the planet Neptune, ruling planet of Pisces, the fish. This planet represents the concept of being One with all Beings. Neptune’s influences accent the character traits of compassion, imagination, and idealism that Pisces possesses. Negative aspects of Neptune is that those ruled my this planet can be easily influenced by media and fantasy situations, and the self-undoing effects of drugs. When Mercury is in the astrological sign of Pisces, the energy is considered to be already as if in retrograde. This is called being in its own determent. When you consider that Pisces – the dreamy, ethereal, untouchable daydreamer, is being challenged by analytical and communicative Mercury, then you have a stand-off between fact and fantasy. Mercury, an Air element planet, represents the mind and intellect and Pisces, a Water element planet, creates F-O-G, and that might be what you feel when attempting to conduct business or relationship connections during this time – you are in a FOG over what is really going on or what is being revealed to you. Do not entertain using products that can cause you to not discern fact from fantasy. This is a time that you need clear and explicit information and instructions in order to proceed forward with clarity in making decisions and plans. Do not allow others to send you over the edge with the “what if’s” and other imaginations and flights of fantasy. If it looks like a duck… The next Mercury Retrograde will occur June 18 – July 12, 2020....

Free Candle Spells | Full Moon in Sagittarius – Mercury’s in Retrograde to Boot!

Free Candle Spells | Full Moon in Sagittarius – Mercury’s in Retrograde to Boot! The Full Moon occurs on June 2, 2015 at 11:19 am E.S.T in the astrological sign of Sagittarius, the Archer. Mercury is in Retrograde at this time, affecting all of us but those especially under the signs of Gemini and Virgo. Despite the tendency of a Mercury Retrograde to wreck havoc with all types of communication form the spoken word to technology, there is a tendency to be curt in response and have a sharp tone to the voice during this time, as Mars joins in the planetary mix to give words “a little heat”. The Full Moon is traditionally held as a time when you use the energies of the waning Moon to reduce, reverse, diffuse, and reject the very issues you are facing. Burning “Reversible” or “Block Buster” candles are effective at this time. The energy of the Full Moon in Sagittarius is a “Mutable” Fire sign, meaning that the energy is creative and aggressive, and fluctuates between optimistic and pessimistic viewpoints. During this time, there may be an over-abundance of e-mails and phone calls, so it is crucial that you ‘say what you mean and mean what you say’ Other planetary aspects include Pluto being in quincunx with Mars, making passions run high. there may be issues with gender equality in the news as well as women’s rights issues. Concerns on the home front take the lead as home and hearth is the thrust of the issue right now. Keep calm when speaking with others when your security is threatened. Burning blue candles anointed with “Peaceful Home” and “House Blessing” oils is suggested at this time. The next New Moon occurs on June 16,...

Free Candle Spells | Mercury Retrograde Coming This Week!

Free Candle Spells | Mercury Retrograde Coming This Week!   The second of three Mercury Retrograde times will occur May 18th and last until June 11, 2015. As in past articles, Mercury, the plant of Communication that rules the astrological signs of Gemini and Virgo, will slow down, stop, then appear to move backwards, or retrograde, across the sky. This is an optical illusion, In reality, the movement of “moving backwards” is not true; it is simply banking a curve in its orbit and appears to be moving backwards to the human eye. These times are called “retrogrades” and they occur with Mercury three times in a year as we know it. When Mercury is moving forward, negotiations succeed, contracts are signed, travel is easy and clarity in communications with others are easy. During the three Mercury Retrograde times, e-mails are sent into cyber-space, letters get “lost” in the mail, documents should not be signed, and agreements and major decisions should be delayed, as many of these contractual decisions might need to be “re-worked” after Mercury goes direct, or once again returns to a forward movement position in the sky. Other things to consider delaying in the event of a Mercury Retrograde: * Making car repairs (unless necessary) * Purchasing major appliances * Purchasing cars (might buy a ‘lemon’) * Signing a mortgage or other legal documents * Making serious life changing decisions * Initiate new businesses or new programs for success Things to do to ride out a Mercury Retrograde: * Send in payments early; double check that they were received * Delay any medical or dental procedure, if possible * Back up computer to hard drive, save all important documents * Make sure computer system is on a power strip or surge blocking device * Make sure you allow plenty of time to travel any distance * Do not commit to a relationship or a change in a relationship * Do not sign contract (if possible) * Download newest security software to computer and cell phone The time during a Mercury Retrograde can successfully be use to spend in quiet and journal and reviewing what has occurred in the past three month, so that you can see objectively the successes and roadblocks you have experienced. It is also a time to write down specific goals for the next three months. With is particular Mercury Retrograde being in the sign of Gemini (which is the signs Mercury rules – as well as Virgo) be extra, EX-tra, EXTRA careful on what you say. Things might get totally misconstrued and then you’ll have a lot of explaining to do. Take it easy, take it slow. Say nothing, and let things work themselves out....
