What is in Store for July's Blood Moon? July 25 2018

July 27, 2018 - The Longest Lunar Eclipse This Century

This coming Friday, July 27, 2018 marks yet another memorable event...in the skies.

Not only is it a lunar eclipse, but is targeted to BE the longest lunar eclipse this century. This also coincides with the Full Blood Moon AND it happens the day after Mercury does its backward dance; it goes retrograde.

It's not what it seems this Mercury in Retrograde Dance

Before you head to your bed and are tempted to pull the covers up over your head in fear of the sky falling, read on:

Mercury is not the only planet retrograde at the moment. Oh NO! In fact other planets are retrograding and most are considered masculine in their energy and traits:

Mars - goes Direct on August 27, 2018
Saturn - goes Direct on September 6, 2018
Pluto - goes Direct on September 30, 2018

 

Mercury is like the tofu of the solar system; it emits the traits of the other planets that are in retrograde at that time. This meaning that the energy we are now entering is going backward in masculinity. Think about that...the masculine is going backwards in energy.

As a side note, the only feminine planet in retrograde at the moment is Neptune. Her traits include inspiration, magical ways that BEcome enchanting and the subsconscious. Her energy is sweet, sublime and cannot tolerate coarseness. Isn't that a beautiful analogy of what we at large are experiencing in the world right now? 

Coarseness. No wonder she went into hiding!

If you are curious, she goes direct on November 24, 2018. 

Assimilate the Energies of This Mercury in Retrograde

Sit back a moment, think about it. If many of the masculine planets are in retrograde and the softest energy feminine planet is also in hiding, how does this reflect and affect you now?

I pondered this greatly last night and this morning and asked not only The Gang, aka the Angels, but Mary Magdalene, who apparently is one of my newest besties. 

Here is what they had to say:

As we return to purity

As we return to LOVE

The masculine must take a proverbial backset in order for the feminine,

The Divine Feminine to come forward and BE

To BE

Balanced with the Masculine

(this is not a battle of who is stronger)

but a union for both to shine

It is a time of reflection

It is a time to soften

It is a time to go within and BE strong

in your Softness

BE strong 

in your Love

BE strong

in your Joy

It is a time to honor both, but first the masculine must soften its grip and the feminine must feel her own divinity and know she is worthy to meet the masculine. The masculine must loosen his grip on control and allow the feminine to BE his partner. 

It is time.

It is this Blood Moon that Sangreal comes to mind, doesn't it?

The Royal Blood or as many call it the Holy Grail.

Without getting into specifics, many hold the energy of Sangreal within themselves. For they are the Divine and are exude the purity that is needed at this time. 

 

You Have Time

Mercury and all the planets listed above are in retrograde until August 19, 2018, this being when Mercury goes direct. Take advantage of this moment, this profound moment in our history is the time to embrace your feminine side; your intuition. Create your own magic. Dream and take no prisoners for this is your dream, your reality, and your life. As John Lennon sang, Imagine all the people living in a world of peace.

If turmoil settles in, step back. Reflect. Ponder. Chat with your soul by placing your hands over your heart and asking what is the next best thing for you to BE at this moment. 

The last thing you need to do is join the fray of turmoil and fear. That defeats everything you desire. That will keep you on that blasted gerbil wheel for the remainder of your life. Take the leap off that wheel and honor you and your needs and most importantly your dreams. 

I know I am.

Will you join me? 

 


How Mercury in Retrograde affects us according to Raphael March 30 2018

It's that time again, Mercury is doing is figuratively dance backwards in retrograde. 

While often times all things electronic can go haywire, it can also greatly contribute to miscommunications with others.

Let's take it a step further in this Year of Love (2018); miscommunication with self. 

How often do you tell yourself little white lies?

If you like the rest of us; fairly often. We all do things such as:

  • You brush your feelings aside when you are hurt.
  • You say it's OK, when it really isn't
  • You keep going even when you are exhausted at the expense of your health. Why? Because it needs to get done.
  • You can get those flurries in the solar plexus chakra when challenged and quickly back down; saying you'll address this later and later never shows up.
  • Eat on the run; knowing that nothing eaten on the run is healthy either the food itself or for your digestive ease.

And so on.

Why do we do these things?

Bottom line, we wished to be liked, honored and most importantly loved. Even if that means we dis-honor ourselves. It's that innate craving that all humans desire; love. We even tell ourselves things such as 'If I wear this or that, I'm popular.' or 'If I make this kind of salary, I'll be honored and respected.' or ' If I'm thin, .... blah blah blah.' Well you can see where this is going. We've all done it and may still do to varying degrees. 

It's time to stop that practice. It's not healthy for you or any other relationship you are in; love, social, health, food, etc. By telling yourself these little white lies, you attract things you don't really desire; unfaithful relationships, a body that you don't like being in, beautiful clothes purchased but left hanging in the closet. 

Thank you Mercury!

We've got some really great energies going on at this moment; Mercury doing its dance and the last Blue Moon until 2020.

Take advantage of this very, very special time and chat with yourself. What are some of things that pop up in your heart (Raphael's chakra designation) that are not a true reflection of you?

Perhaps it is time to go through your closet with a fine eye and discerning hand. 

Perhaps it is time to go through the pantry and be rid of those foods that are dulling your energy vs. fueling your power.

Perhaps it is time to go through your various relationships and admit the ones that are draining you. In other words toxic. All relationships, in general fuel each person involved in it. Each relationship wavers as to who is 'leading', but in general it is a 50/50 blend of love; no matter if a friend, social media friend, family and most importantly your beloved.

In fact, a very dear friend and I have reconnected after ten years! Ten Years! We couldn't be happier. Who knows why we lost touch. That is immaterial. But she reached out and we haven't stopped chatting since. She is a friend of the highest caliber; she likes - no loves me for me - not what I may or may not do for her (that is under the toxic relationship arena).

Take Stock

The list and categories in your life can be longer than your arm. So this assignment via Raphael is not meant to overwhelm, but perhaps entice you to see what pops up that is ready to move on. This assignment is designed to empower you via letting go of something you don't desire thus allowing you to love yourself more.

The Result?

A more empowering YOU. A soul who is beginning to understand the power of Love Towards Self. A soul who is more confidently walking their talk with their head held high. 

You can now thank Mercury.

 

 

 


Mercury is revving up its last dance for 2017 November 29 2017

While Mercury does not officially go 'backwards' (retrograde) until December 3, it appears it is already affecting many via their energy levels, sensitivities and oh so much more.

Me too.

While I can certainly lay the tiredness completely at my feet with the crazy schedule we took on this past fall, but that is just not it completely. Otherwise I would be the only one doing the Weary Dance.

Many may lay claim to the vast amount of richer food eaten over the holiday weekend...Guilty here too. We love the holidays in our home; playing games, nibbling, laughing, cavorting, yelling at football teams, drinking and more. 

However, that is not the only culprit either.

Oh, so is Mercury doing its dance a bit early? Think so. Before you start panicking and desiring to put the pillow over your head until December 22, think of it this way. 

Mercury in Retrograde is a gift.

Yes you read correctly, a gift.

You see, when Mercury does go retrograde, it is a golden moment to ponder, reflect and learn. We've ALL done stuff we aren't proud of. It's part of the Human Dance. Now is the time to reflect on how you may address a similar situation. Perhaps you would be a bit more non-judgmental. Perhaps you would be a bit more loving (especially towards self) Perhaps...

Mercury in Retrograde is great at triggering emotions and bringing them to the surface. You know those 'things' that we think are long forgotten, but are really just under the surface waiting for the opportunity to pop so they may heal. Through that healing we are given another opportunity to love on ourselves a bit more. This is a golden opportunity to sit quietly. Is it a real fear or imaginary fear? Certainly walking down a dark alley at night is not the best choice (legitimate fear). Compare it to feelings of lack. While that may certainly feel real, it's more of a thought pattern vs. a real threat to your existence. Can you see the difference between the two?

You don't have to find the initial time it happened in order for it to heal completely, but sit with that pattern from a non-judgmental viewing box. You will begin to realize that exists mostly in your mind which can keep you stuck and immobile. Now is the time to softly release it through your acknowledgment of it and let love flow more freely.

Remember, nobody gets a ribbon if they get to the finish line first (death). It is truly about the journey and how each turn is handled; with fear or with love.

The choice is yours.

This Mercury in Retrograde has many of the earmarks of offering all sorts of these kinds of situations.

Lovely, just what I NEED (like a hole in the head) you're thinking.

Yes, just what you need. Remember, 2017 is The Year of Transparency. This is the last hurrah to BE transparent with yourself. What do you desire? How do you truly wish to live? If you aren't truthful with yourself, how can you expect others to follow suit?

This, once more (feeling like a broken record here) sets the stage for 2018, The Year of Love. 

It is time to LOVE yourself more.

It is time for LOVE to win.

It is time for LOVE to prevail.

Thanks Mercury in Retrograde!

 


Mercury is preparing to do its thing... retrograde... are you ready? April 06 2017 2 Comments

The first backward dance of Mercury is about to happen; April 9, 2017 and goes until May 3, 2017.

When Mercury goes retrograde it may seem like all hell is breaking loose and we run for cover. If one does that, it becomes a self-fulfilled prophecy then, doesn't it? It really isn't that bad, or certainly doesn't have to be.

Why not be better prepared vs. ignoring it?

Why not acknowledge this inner gift and take advantage of this quiet time to do a bit of soul searching?

That's the gift of Mercury Retrograding. This time it hits in Taurus. While I am far from an astrology expert, I do known Taurus is the bull. The Gang is sharing that because mercury is hitting during this astrological sign, one can become more bull-headed or certainly encounter folks that are being bull headed.

IF this happens, take that literal and proverbial step back. Look at the larger picture. Why is one (including yourself) act this way? Is it out of fear? Is it out not feeling understood? Is it out of not feeling adequate? Is it...? All of these not so nice emotions can surface during a retrograde. 

Here are some of the more common hiccups that can occur during a Mercury in Retrograde, no matter your astrological sign:

  • Miscommunication
  • Electronics going haywire - best back up your computers
  • Travel mishaps - lost tickets, canceled flights, etc.
  • Crying jags

To make Mercury and its backward dance more effective for you, keep these tips in mind:

  • If possible, do not sign any contracts
  • Do not start a new endeavor (for this reason The Angel Chatter Authorization Course will not launch until early May)
  • Eat more healthily - this gives you better fuel to handle the hiccups
  • Rest
  • Journal - get out those icky thoughts
  • Allow your intuition/heart to guide you - tell the ego to go sit in the corner with a lollipop
  • Take advantage of the quiet time to do some inner reflecting. Most lifestyles are incredibly busy these days... who has time to BE? Take the time now.
  • Meditate. Light one of our sacred Angel Candles to deeper connect with The Gang and yourself

So you see, no need to run for cover! Take advantage of this blessing! Use the Askfirmation:

Why is it so easy to go with the flow?

 

And remember to allow The Gang to answer for you... NO need to find answers with Askfirmations!

So is it all doom and gloom during a retrograde? Of course not. As with all things, it greatly depends on your interpretation and reaction to any event. IF there are contracts and deals lined up to happen during retrograde, as an example, just be sure to cross those 'T'  and dot those 'I'... Read every word on every page. If you don't understand something, ask! Keep asking until you do understand. Viola, no more mis-communication.

 

 

I look forward to reading your responses below!
