Free Candle Spells | The Three Mercury Retrogrades in 2021

Free Candle Spells | The Three Mercury Retrogrades in 2021     Mercury Retrogrades occur three times a year, throwing havoc in our lives as communication goes haywire and it feels like we should curl up under the blankets for three weeks until it is over. While this is not feasible for us to do, here are the times to plan and look forward to guarding yourself to minimize Mercury’s effect on our lives.   January 30th, 2021 (Aquarius) – February 19th, 2021 (Pisces) May 31st, 2021 (Gemini) – June 21st, 2021 (Gemini) September 28th, 2021 (Libra) – October 16th, 2021 (Libra)   First Mercury Retrograde – January 30th through February 19, 2021 In this first Retrograde period, Mercury begins in the astrological sign of Aquarius, the Water Bearer and finishes the retrograde in Pisces, the Fish. Since Mercury is the planet of Communication, in addition to affecting those born under the signs of Gemini and Virgo, and anyone whose birthday is in the timeline of mid-January to mid-February will also be affected a little more than others. Mercury Retrograde in Aquarius could affect the free speech of the Common Man, and the idea of Brotherhood could feel like a stretch at this time. Better to use your powers of silent meditation to bring together different factions of the World. Not only that, it affects Valentine’s Day on February 14th, so speak clearly the Language of Love, or else some sweet nothing might be misconstrued by your partner. When Mercury moves into Pisces, mental images and intuition may play some tricks on you, since the messages you may receive from the Universe may seem unclear and vague or conflicted. Use your powers of discernment and maybe a little divination to ask the Universe exactly what it means.   Second Mercury Retrograde – May 31st through June 21, 2021 This second Mercury Retrograde is in the astrological sign of Gemini, the Twins and stays in the sign of Gemini the entire time. Mercury already rules Gemini, so a double whammy on you, since messages could be bollocks up and the things you says might not come out of your mouth the way you wanted them to and may get misconstrued. Ah, talkative and social Gemini, take care when imbibing at the Happy Hour with co-workers, as you might spill the beans that weren’t meant for spillin’! After that, we have to endure the planet going Direct on the Summer solstice of June 21st – the longest day of the Year.  Bite your tongue as you bite that burger at the family barbecue, or else you’ll have a legion of family correcting your behavior.   Third Mercury Retrograde – September 28th through October 16, 2021 The last of three Mercury Retrogrades, misses the second family-oriented ‘fun’ holiday, Halloween, so things will go smoothly by the time the ghosts and goblins come out. This Retrograde time affects Libra, the Scales, whose “keeping things in balance”nature could really, really be challenging during this time. Libra, with their meaning to only see the best in everyone, is known for matter of factual truth and honesty, and if you are sensitive, you might not receive their words well. Understand that Libra rules fairly for a reason – they want all to be the best they can be. They will just be fair and balanced and may not take your side in events. Cry, then get over it. It is only three weeks that you have to work with this Air sign. Then things will return to some sort of normalcy for you. The best kept practices to weather a Mercury Retrograde is to slow down all aspects of your life. In this time, we are considered...

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,...
