Healthy for the Holidays!
This Mercury Retrograde is something to celebrate. It is a reminder for you to tune into your inner voice and take care of yourself.
When the fastest moving planet in our solar system heads toward its backspin, it’s the Universe’s way of getting you to slow down and re-prioritize your life.
As we head into the holiday season, you can avoid the rush of getting all your gifts now. It’s best to avoid big purchases and contract signing until after this transit is over (which is December 6th). That’s because during Mercury Retrograde, your thoughts will change about what’s right for you.
Your heart and mind are changing for the better. The timing of this transit is purely divine. Mercury, as the trickster planet goes retrograde, Venus has ended its six week retrograde and finally has gone direct.
For the past six weeks as Venus was retrograde, it has been a time of re-assessing all of your relationships and what you value, to reflect your enhanced self-esteem. I’m sure your relationships and life have changed dramatically in this short span of time.
That’s the power of retrogrades. They may be uncomfortable in the moment, yet they can dramatically change your life for the better.
Venus Retrograde has been changing how you FEEL, and Mercury Retrograde will transform how you THINK.

Many of us are going through a period of deep review around life, your choices, your relationships, the things that you are doing in the world. This process will continue strongly in November, and you may experience daydreams and flashbacks to other times, other relationships, other places in your life.
This is a life-review and life-update in progress. Part of that involves a revisiting of past experiences and life events at high speed. The opportunity is to let you see them differently now, to let you see how far you have come, or to learn something from them with the new perspective you have in the now. As we all go through these review periods we are having a clear-out. We start to lift and rearrange the emotional, psychic and psychological debris inside ourselves when we have a clear-out like this which is extraordinarily potent and a fast time of transformation.

Happy Full Moon in Taurus! Full Moons always are opposite signs of the zodiac from each other, but also invite us to work to achieve a balance between the opposing energies. The contrast between earthy, practical, peace-loving Taurus and emotional, transformative, Scorpio comes full bloom today.
The Moon in Taurus wants us to find emotional fulfillment through the simple things in life, while the Scorpio Sun draws our attention to complexities and mysteries. The Full Moon illuminates this conflict between form (Taurus) and transformation (Scorpio), and between collecting (Taurus) and sharing (Scorpio). This is a passionate and creative Full Moon, ripe with possibilities and learning experiences.

For the energies of September, some would say this is the timeline shift, where the good go in one direction, and the bad in the other. Polarization is a natural form of new creation. It gets people off the fence, making decisions, forming opinions and judgments.
Using your discernment (the less judged form of judgment) is important. You are in the physical realm to experience and choose. When you do that with less polarity and more neutrality, you are following the rules of creation that determines form. You’re writing the future.
This is the physical realm. We move through change based on rules of the physical realm. We transcend that by integrating the “higher” resonance (the subtle, unseen) of the heart love. But those 2, the physical and non-physical, are connected. It’s your light, your information connects them.
The benefit of polarity in the physical realm, is it clarifies your perspective. What couldn’t be identified when you were too close to it, becomes clear with some perspective through distance. Too often we have been entrained to focus on problems that stimulate polarizing fear. Yet progress is calling you toward neutralizing the polarity.
August showed us the power of the heart to forgive (neutralize) and create the new in Love. September teaches us to neutral-eyes and see a new future. See beyond polarization as separation and embrace the clarification that the spiral always creates.
Allow it to spin off the weak bonds of fear, pain and resentment, enlightening your load. Allow it to strengthen your strong bonds of love, compassion and creative courage, illuminating your road.
The energy of Mother Mary, representing unconditional Love and nurturing compassion has been strong recently. You may resonate with a similar energy other than Mother Mary, but that energy of nurturing Love is key to the diverging roads finding new direction.
This is where the linearity, the lines diverging, are swept into resonant spiral. Where deconstruction and reconstruction submit to the forces around them. Love is a passive force, it compels new form. It does that with a deep inner knowing that the rules of nature “right” (write) themselves through Time.
These months have called us to amplify our creative flow by owning our lives. Be the dominant flow in your own life, it is the creative gift of free will that Life has bestowed upon you by nature, not by nurture. The nurturing is your work. What are you nurturing in your life? Are you feeding your fear or feeding your Love?
September is a time of perceiving a new potential. It follows an amplification of the heart/love so that the brilliant mind is focusing on the linear path and steps that help manifest the heart’s desires. It is a powerful time of being the change you want to see in the world!
Your inner perspective is your first action, how you allow the building/amplification of a resonance to create new form. September may not feel as action-focused as you may like but go back to that powerful knowing that you are creating from a new foundation of love. Look for the clues of form building and you will find more neutrality as you connect to the new.
This equinox brings us to a new balance between 2 worlds, where we see the potential of the connection of equality enhancing life, rather than the separation of inequality dominating the landscape. How is the scene influencing your flow? Or are you influencing it? Perhaps in ways unseen, but sensed by those with eyes to see, and lived by those with the courage to be. The change.
