Well I wrote most of my blog Saturday, tweaked it last night and this morning it was just gone! Yes its retrograde Mercury in full force making things frustrating or slow or just annoying. Ugh.
Mercury is in Scorpio, but on Friday it moves back into Libra, which will makes things less contentious but don't expect to excel on your Lumosity tests right now, because your brain is begging you for a vacation.
My plate is full of "to do's" as I am sure everyone's is....but you have to pace yourself or your brain will just crash on you and you won't bounce back after a nights sleep, and will let you down until the 25th until it goes direct again. Get rest. Sleep. Naps (I can tell you as a person who NEVER napped, but as an old Lady now, I am getting naps in now and again and they are great. No guilt allowed. If you're tired your body is telling you something, so listen!). Clean up, clear up, rest, but don't start anything big right now. It's for finishing up, not for starting. it's also the perfect time to do inward work. Be still and listen. Turn off the TV, the radio, the CD's and DVD and go about your day or evening in blessed silence. It is SOOTHING. Cut out all the noise and find your inner voice. It's sitting there waiting for you to acknowledge it.
October 8th is a Lunar eclipse, in Full Moon Aries. Eclipses are triggers and full moons are full of emotion and Aries represents NEW. So here we go again with new popping up, and the eclipse is gonna shoot the moon out of a cannon and spread moonlight, and the desire for new, and an emotional determination to do something that involves changing your life. If things fall away, its to make room for new. I know loss is a bitch, but now its all about filling in the blanks with NEW. So release, and know something better is coming if you allow it.
Last April I spoke of the 4 blood moons coming. These 4 full blood moons foretell of amazing change in the world, and within ourselves if we have a clue about changing. there is a lot going on out there, and its only the beginning. This day its also trining Jupiter in Leo and Mars in Sagittarius.....a grand fire trine. If you are a fire sign, expect to be flying by the seat of your pants from one adventure to another, and the rest of us, espectially air signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius will be flying high too with amazing ideas and the desire to bring them to fruition. Water signs Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces will be 'FEELING IT" and should go deep into their emotions and review, experience, revel and release these feelings out into the universal pool for us all. Our earthy signs Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn may be the hardest hit, because they are not so good at embracing change. Be sure to walk slowly vs not walking at all. It's time for things to shift. Go with the flow and you'll be happier about it in the long run. All these energies are in full play for about 2 weeks, and the effect of the eclipse carries on until next April when the 3rd eclipse emerges. I'm telling you now, that if you think 2014 has been mind boggling, just remember it's a preview for the astonishing changes coming next year.
Meanwhile the desire to go forth into the world will be powerful, and just as quickly you can be pulled back into yourself with the need to look within and learn from this grand fire trine, to absorb its message of action on BOTH WORLDS of the inner spirit and the outer realm.
Like always these days its another crazy week. enjoy!
