Not Your Average Mercury Retrograde

Earhthotcold

All those regular Mercury Retrograde “RE” rules that proclaim honor reflection, renewal, review, redo, and retreat are about to be up close and personal once again for the second time in 2015 from 18 May to 11 June.

This cycle of reflection occurs in the Zodiac sign of Gemini, where our intellectual awareness and synthesis of spirit calls to be closely examined under the recharge microscope. While Mercury is going to reverse it’s direction in a sign it has natural rulership over, this passage is riddled with extra energetic intensities across the board.

Courage or Conflict?
Mars, our planet of taking action, motivation, desires and drawing upon conclusions will be energetically in the mix as Mercury ask us to review. As Mars equally is transiting within Gemini for the entire cycle, this flavors it with sharpness as well as conflicting action concerning the changes that call within reflection, review & release.

Peace of Mind or Delusion?
Neptune, our planet of the subconscious, mysticism, spirituality, solitude, the inner process, delusions and addictions will be in a tense conversation with Mercury as he is doing his review and redo show. Neptune now currently transits in Pisces, which creates a strong “squaring off” energy to this entire Mercury Retrograde (MRx) cycle, as well as to Mars as they both journey in Gemini.

Squares are known to bring about tense, stagnant, and blocked energies. However, they ultimately create future foundation and strength when worked with properly. As Neptune gets involved in the MRx conversation, it is equally wise to watch for further mishaps the cycle tends to naturally create all upon it’s own, such as:

~Absentmindedness & mental disorganization
~Challenges with getting the details straight
~Feeling repressed emotions  
~Forgetfulness
~Communication problems
~Errors concerning anything that moves

This energy promotes the unconscious mind to play “tricks” upon the conscious one. We always say under Mercury Rx, use the “carpenter’s rule.” This advice under this not your average mercury retrograde is heightened times 10!!!

Extra Mindfulness & Awareness required 24 to 31 May
While Mercury backtracks, he will meet up with Mars moving fwd at 10 degrees Gemini upon 27 May. The days leading up to and after this exact conjunction of two celestial bodies “bumping into one  another” will cast an extra “boost” of the regular “RE” rules, as Mars will absolutely amplify the natural tendencies of the retrograde cycle.

Mars naturally channels the potentials of aggression, anger, conflict & penetration. Equally, it’s pioneering and warrior presence is able to shine with courage and motivation wherever it is journeying by mindful choice of the free will.

Within the Mercury Rx mix, it will be the aggressive side of Mars that will need to be carefully monitored as well. Heated & competitive arguments may surface, (especially in the political arenas or any area that lends itself to controversy & debate) that simply can be avoided with slowing down our pace and choosing to listen more, especially where Gemini energy lives within our lives. Watch for a complete “field day” in the media to say the very least!

As Mars and Mercury conjunct in Gemini, they will directly square Neptune in Pisces, kicking up those unconscious “tricks” even more so. MRx always promotes retreat and review, yet this cycle is fueled with the following potentials to emerge:

~Skeletons from the past absolutely saying BOO!
~Secrets easily being exposed
~Anxieties and nervousness are heightened and “lit up”
~Returning to unhealed addictions and spinning out of control.
~Believing self-deception when one is not fully aware of their truth and motivation
~Relationships existing within duality becoming exposed.

Mastering Mercury Retrograde
The brilliance of this cycle will be wonderful and wise for those who take their time to quiet their minds, think before speaking, and allow the sharp and abundant mental energy to flow with the true cleverness, intuition and genius it can provide.  Creatively, it is a godsend channel of energy to embrace for those willing to listen carefully to it.

Whatever truly needs to be reviewed, redone, and reassessed from the Gemini area of the life, amazing information can be gathered through investigation and honoring decisions made in reflection. Once the shadow passage comes into play 11 to 27 June, taking acting concerning these decisions will be ever powerful for the future.

Mercury Retrograde & Your Timing in 2016: 5 Things You Need To Know

MRXlexigramsSStar“As far back as I can remember, I’ve always been a strong believer in the importance of cycles. You’d better try to understand them, because all of your timing and often your luck is tied up in them.” ~Former Chrysler CEO Lee Iacocca

There are regular periodic cycles that astrology always promises will change our times, so aligning peace of mind is absolutely necessary to better understand the benefits that can be brought to our lives. One such cycle is Mercury Retrograde, the astrological offering for review, reflection, redo and release.

Who is Mercury anyway and what does “Retrograde” mean?

Mercury -also known as The Messenger as our closest inner planet from above- is in charge of our movement, electricity, communications, thinking, mentality, along with any and all exchanges of information down here below.

Approximately 3 times each year, he retraces his measured degrees within his current zodiac transit for about 3 weeks.

Think of a person -or in this case a mass of a planet in our Universal energy field- placing a blindfold on and then walking backwards. Now you get the basic gist of “retrograde” and it’s effects. Is it starting to make sense our actions and events just might become ultimately disarrayed as a result of this cycle?

What’s Really in a Word? Meditation

MEDITATIONlexigrams“Meditation clears the cosmic mist as the descended consciousness of the soul starts ascending to its lost higher planes of existence.” ~Paramahansa Yogananda

If you are a regular follower of our monthly Word Ponder, you’ll have innately grasped from May how self-realization is truly an act of uniting in intuition, allowing you to enjoy the affirmations that you have plenty to celebrate in the realms of achievement during June. So now we wonder as we think about where to ponder next, perhaps you just might already be one of those people that deeply understand -to now maintain your peace of mind- engaging in the practice of MEDITATION will take you to an even higher plane of existence.

Meditation is defined as: “the emptying of the mind of thoughts, or concentration of the mind on just one thing, in order to aid mental or spiritual development, contemplation, or relaxation.”  We decided to ponder this word because the very question, what’s really in a word? will clarify that indeed, the energy within and surrounding what it takes to meditate is able to reward us in a multitude of ways. If you acknowledge when you are experiencing achievement- you may already be very tuned into this concept of emptying your mind or finding ways to concentrate on one thing makes a huge difference in what you find yourself achieving. As the wonders, mysteries and changes of everyday life come to you in your now, what happens when you schedule meditation into your regular routine?

To recognize our self-realization and achievements, meditation is a path that sharpens our inner saw so we can be more aware of them, resulting in the deepening of our spiritual experiences. Once viewed as a more “new age” kind of approach to life, meditation is quickly becoming more mainstream, even within our modern day business and corporate environments.  One of the most recent revelations this past Spring was aired on ABC about this growing “trend” as Anchor Dan Harris segmented the power of meditation -being so astounded by his results- he wrote an entire book about his own journey of practicing it, 10% Happier. Aside from what is changing within our common culture, equally, it is interesting to discover how Chaldean Numerology and Lexigrams view meditation.

What does it take to enjoy a routine practice of meditation? It takes a rhythm that is attuned to a vibration. Every sound we utter contains an unseen channel of energy, and thus, when we speak our names and engage within the action of our words, there is an underlying current, this guided force that connects that vibration into it’s own individual expression.

When we examine the Name Expression of MEDITATION -which is the numerological energy that is always behind it through the values of the letters that compose it- we find it has, as numbers always will provide, the very key points to know what exactly to do within the action of it. One should not be surprised it is guided by the Chaldean’s understanding of the 36, which is one of the compound numbers they considered to be extremely fortunate. Adding 3 + 6 together, we find the 9, whose singular energy is ruled by Mars- who governs over our courage, penetration, pioneering pursuits and attitude towards anger. Ask anyone who already enjoys a routine practice of meditation, and they will probably share with you that they feel more courageous, grounded, calm, and are clear about where they point their outward actions. Most people who choose to meditate, find their lives become not only more fulfilled, but equally more efficient.

Within the 36’s Chaldean Karmic Mystery, which is the same meaning of the 27s’ understanding of The Sceptre, we find very interesting concepts to consider. “This is an excellent, harmonious and fortunate number of courage and power, with a touch of enchantment. It blesses the person or entity it represents with a promise of authority and command. It guarantees that great rewards will come from the productive labors, the intellect, and the imagination. All of these creative faculties have sown good seeds which are to reap a rich harvest. People or entities represented by the 36 should always carry out their own original plans and ideas, and not be intimidated or influenced by the diverse opinions or opposition of others. 36 is a number of karmic reward, earned in more than one previous incarnation.” ~Linda Goodman’s Star Signs

Makes you want to get thee to practicing meditation right away doesn’t it? Within the action of emptying our minds or choosing a focus that allows us to enhance our connection to soul, what spiritual rewards are then to follow! Who wouldn’t choose meditation to reap a richer harvest, be in command of their mindset, feel more empowered, all on the good side of truly enjoying the gratifying side of what karma can reflect.

When we take the 3 and 6 -and look at them individually- there is even more goodness associated within the act of meditation. As Jupiter guides the 3, we find the channel of optimism, higher education, philosophy, spiritual joy and the true seeking of aligning the body, mind and spirit. Coupled with the 6, guided by Venus, oh what harmony and balance is here to innately embrace, as this number strives completely to seek to understand, then be understood. Both Jupiter and Venus are known as benefic planets, where ease, joy, and pleasantries are their influences if one is not abusing their natural privileges.

As we engage in the practice of meditation, another point to note is what the singular 9 guidance does here for anyone through the motivation of Mars. 9 is known as The Finalizer, in where conclusions and endings mark the actions that this number brings. Regular meditation always will bring us to a constant state of closure within our minds, in where, as we settle our busy thoughts and empty it -or choose a primary focus- we ultimately release and let go of the energy that does not serve us. This is how the rewards of the higher vibration of the 36 come shining through. For as we regularly conclude thought patterns that are not producing the results we wish to see unfold, the very act of meditation ends the pattern. Every time a form of meditation is practiced, the clean slate of a fresh, clear and ready to go mind is what we take away to move forward with.

Whether once chooses to meditate by emptying the mind, this practice can be also enjoyed through the simple act of taking a walk, chanting, yoga, music, art, tai chi, and plenty of other avenues. One of the easiest ways to enjoy these benefits -however you may choose to meditate- is to remember to  focus upon the breath. No matter what might show up in one’s mind, the return to the breath is the fundamental rule of meditation. What pleasure it really is to deeply BREATHE, so we BEAT THE HATE, BATHE THE HEART RATE, BE THE EARTH EAR.

The mysteries of Lexigrams have more evidence to support the meaning within MEDITATION, and what it is simply able to do for any of us. By taking the anagrams we can derive from this word, and spiral them into poetic phrases, the Lexigram process brings one more piece of the puzzle to place into our mastery of life about what’s really hiding within it in truth. The reality that relates to how to best reap the rewards this word wishes for us all to assimilate into our human experiences, is as always, ready to be spelled out from the very letters that compose it.
