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.

Eclipse, Mercury Retrograde, Big Change


Yay! Summer Is here! June 21 marked the Summer Solstice of 2020. The longest day of the year, coupled with a rare Solstice solar eclipse. It is said by some Feng Shui Masters if you observed this solstice solar eclipse outside, you will have 2 years of bad luck. As if we needed any more! The yang of the sun is essentially covered by the yin of the moon during an hour where there is supposed to be light, so it is considered sha chi, or bad chi, to expose yourself to it. I stayed inside!  

Now we have Mercury Retrograde. June 17-July 12. Problems with communication, delays in travel, meetings. Don’t sign a contract or make big purchases. A great time to complete a project, or practice anything with re-Revive, reorganize, review, revisit. 

2020 will certainly be a year that we all remember, but with the Summer solstice, change is in the air (and by change I do not mean COVID) All of this planetary activity gives way to big shifts. The year is more than half over, and we have an opportunity to move in a different direction. Let’s take it, get out in the sun and begin the process of healing.
