Welcome back, Mercury Retrograde

Welcome back, Mercury Retrograde


Yes, I’m a believer…

• huge uptick in dropped calls

• mishaps

• misunderstandings

• delays

• miscommunication

• inability to communicate… sound familiar?

Welcome to the latest Mercury Retrograde: May 29-June 22.


This retrograde has the added bonus of heat, COVID fatigue, increase traffic everywhere, delays for most things that are shipped. 


This is not the time to explode, or implode. Envision taking a step back, and take some time to reassess the way you manage what’s coming at you.


Avoid:

• Signing Contracts

• Buying electronics, property, vehicles-large purchases

• Time sensitive travel

• Medical procedures

• Mediation/Group Resolution/Negotiations


Good for:

• Connecting with old friends

• Revamping

• Reviving practices

• Revisiting

• Rebooting

• Decluttering

• Reorganizing

By the way, Mercury appears blue and in Bazi and Feng Shui, is associated with the element water.

Does Artwork Create a Bad Feng Shui Situation?


One of the many Feng Shui classes I’ve taken warned us about artwork creating a bad Feng Shui situation. No headless people, no single self Portraits(especially if you want a relationship) and avoid abstract art.

I’ve since learned that having art you love does not create bad Feng Shui… unless it’s artwork of you on a killing spree!

The important thing about art is to have art you really love; not putting up pieces people gave you because you feel you have to. 

Full disclosure: The art you choose to display does reveal plenty to the Feng Shui master about your personality and, subsequently, potential challenges you may face during your life. 

The exception to hanging art is to avoid putting things directly over your head where you sleep. The more active the art, the less restful sleep you may experience. Crashing waves and oceans could make for a restless night. 

The street art above is in the town of Carlisle, PA. Get your wings! 

Floyd Friday Fire Prep

It’s fire season again, so this year, we are prepping early. Tom got on the roof to blow off what seems like 30 years of pine needles. 


If you describe your current state of being as “overwhelmed,” “at the breaking point,” “under the gun,” or “under water,” you may want to check the state of your roof. It’s probably full of debris or in poor condition. 

Weight on your roof sometimes translates to weight over your head. In addition to safety, regular maintenance of your roof is helpful to the overall health of your home’s Feng Shui. 

Clearing Your Inbox


Last night, we had the pleasure of watching “Hoarders.” We’ve never seen it before and we were pretty astounded at how people literally bury themselves in meaningless garbage. 


It made me think about how the messes we create around us affect how we think, sleep, and operate. This is Feng Shui-how you feel and behave in a space. 


If you’re feeling overwhelmed, start with your inbox. I used to average 13,000+ emails in my inbox, and I’ve learned, through several business courses, to get this under control.


There is nothing about email that sparks joy, but getting it organized may be all you need, or it may be the beginning of a declutter. It’s a mindset, and conquering it feels pretty great.


You may have aspirations to be on television, but not Hoarders! Get your inbox under control.
