Free Candle Spells | Mercury Retrograde Alert! – October 21, 2013

Free Candle Spells | Mercury Retrograde Alert! – October 21, 2013 Mercury, the ruling planet of the astrological signs of Gemini and Virgo, will go Retrograde on October 21, 2013. It will stay at this position until November 11, 2013 and this will be during the time that the Moon will be in the astrological signs of Libra until October 23rd) and Scorpio (October 24th-November 11th), so persons born under these signs may be affected a bit more in regards to delays in decisions and advancement. Mercury Retrogrades affect people in various ways, depending on where the planet Mercury is stationing at the time of their birth. Most Mercury Retrogrades will cause us to have postal mail deliveries of important documents take longer or become ‘lost in the mail’, so it is best that when a Mercury Retrograde is coming, try to mail the credit card payments in a day or two early to ward off any delays. Many times there are communication mistakes such as your e-mails go off into the Twilight Zone and are never delivered to the intended recipient or what is said to you and what you say to others can be misconstrued and taken the wrong way. Mercury is the planet of communication in all forms. This is the time to slow down, re-read, re-state your proposal or intention, and try to not make any hasty or important and life-changing decisions until after November 15th. The next few days are a great time to get all your thoughts of future projects on paper and stash it somewhere for decisive moves in three weeks because Mercury Retrogrades are also the time to rest, contemplate and plan. Cocoon in your favorite comfy clothes or blanket on the couch and journal or sort all those family photos into books and boxes. Make your holiday menus and shopping lists. File stacks of mail and bills in the cabinet or closet and re-arrange your winter and summer clothes tubs. Go through your old clothes and donate gently-used items to the thrift store and toss the worn down flip-flops. Grab a good book or use this “down-time” to meditate and spend time in prayer with the Heavens above. Nap and drink lots of tea. Given that we are also experiencing a Lunar Eclipse on the 22nd, the greater message here is: “The divide of the two opposites is so wide that each appears as if the other is a foreigner or an alien. Making your way through the middle ground of these two opposites is the best course of action for survival” NOTE: It is strongly urged that when you feel you are in ‘crisis mode’, do not use perception-altering substances such as drugs or alcohol as the pressures of this time may influence a larger quantity or dosage than normal to quiet your thoughts. Again, use sensibility and calming herbal teas, naps and relying on the power of control and Spirit to get you through. This is the last of three Mercury Retrogrades for 2013. The next Mercury Retrograde is in February 2014.

Free Candle Spells | Mercury Retrograde Alert! – June 26, 2013

Mercury turns Retrograde for its second of three blocks of time in 2013 on June 26, 2013. As Mercury, the planet of communication and the astrological sign of Gemini, the twins, takes this backwards march through out summer skies, it brings both the good and the ‘bad’ with it. Some of the beneficial aspects of a Mercury Retrograde is that is is a good time to rest and reflect. Journal about where you want to be in three months or next year at this time. Curl up with inspirational reads or common sense books and consider their ideas that you read. Quiet your soul and listen. Now for the ‘bad’ – computers may fail or frizzle out, e-mails go into cyber-Internet-space and snail mail is well…slower than usual. Be proactive and not reactive by paying your bills a day or two earlier, especially if you do electronic bill paying, and if using the postal service, make sure you hand-deliver them to the clerk. Your cell phones may have problems and other items of communication may suffer meltdowns. On the personal front, from June 26th until July 20th, try not to discuss the “heavy” issues such as the path a relationship is going or signing divorce papers. This is also not the time to sign any contracts at all, or make any life-changing big ticket purchases or deals as you may not understand the ‘fine print’ and get wrapped up into something you cannot afford. It has been said that if you get cars repaired during a Mercury Retrograde, sometimes they have to be returned to the mechanic’s shop for a ‘re-do’ because of faulty work. To prepare for a Mercury Retrograde, you should consider: * Backing up your computer * Steer clear of difficult people wo will not understand your words and twist everything you say to them into one nightmare pretzel that you will have to unravel. * Finish craft projects and other things that have been left ‘hanging’ or that have been pushed to the ‘back burner’. This means lots of filing invoices and old bills for me! * If you own a business, review your income and financial goals and readjust your end game goal for 2013. Set a new agenda to get you through until the end of the year. * If you own a physical emporium, now is the time for a deep cleaning of all clutter and stacks of papers. * If you are doing any magical work, make sure you word your petitions correctly and do not be hesitant in your candle burning spells. No ‘beating around the bush’ here – you have to have a clearly defined goal and make sure your heart is in it before beginning your candle spell. * Rest and meditate. There is nothing wrong with doing or saying….nothing! Remember, your tongue can’t ‘dig your grave’ if it isn’t in use so keep certain comments and opinions to yourself and sit quietly and reflect on where you are in this point of your life and plan, plan, plan! Our final Mercury Retrograde will occur October 21st through November 10th later this year...

Free Candle Spells | End of Mercury Retrograde – March 17, 2013

Free Candle Spells | End of Mercury Retrograde – March 17, 2013   The first of the three Mercury Retrograde periods will conclude on Sunday, March 17, 2013, however the lingering effects can last until April 6th. This is because of something astrologers call a “shadow” effect. This effect is the result of the planet ‘retracing’ it’s steps back to the original degree of station at the point of when it went retrograde. For example, when we began this Mercury retrograde, Mercury was at 20 degrees in the astrological sign of Pisces. It then went retrograde, or began it’s appearance to “march backward” in the night sky, to the point of 5 degrees Pisces on March 17th. It will then begin to appear to “move forward” again in the sky, and will reach 20 degrees Pisces again on April 6th, 2013. This time that it is regaining the ‘lost’ degrees is known as the “shadow” time. This is considered by astrologers as a time of lesser influence. Most of us will be recovering from whatever happened during the past three weeks. It has been said that people born under the zodiac signs of Gemini and Virgo are the most affected by Mercury retrogrades because Mercury is their ruling planet. Yet, some do not consider Mercury retrograde times as negative as others. Some consider that while there are heightened levels of communication and the incidences of possible problems, it is also a good time to pay attention to how you communicate and glean information during that time. Some use the energy of Mercury retrograde to slow down and read the fine print, digest what is being said to you and contemplate and use your power of introspection. The next Mercury retrograde will occurs from June 26 to July 20,...
