Mercury Moves


On December 10, mischievous Mercury makes yet another semi-annual retrograde journey, and just in time to potentially add a little extra stress to your holidays.

But have no fear! The key word here is “potentially.” As with any astrological event, the final result rests in your hands. There are plenty of tricks and tips that will help Mercury’s backwards motion work in your favor. Plus, Mercury will add a pleasant little boost to its activities on the 10th by moving into a positive aspect with romantic Venus.

The key to dealing with Mercury is understanding that the messenger planet is something of a prankster, it is in no way malicious. Mercury likes to keep you on your toes, reminding you that even the best-laid plans can go awry. However, it’s by learning to deal with these little setbacks that we become more successful at tackling some of life’s bigger problems.

In this particular case, Mercury will travel through Capricorn, which means it will carry a more practical message: Keep an eye on your spending! This is a wise — if not enthusiastically embraced — reminder around the holidays. Still, take a little extra time to go over your budget in detail and try not to overspend. In fact, given the tendencies of retrograde Mercury, it would be smart to set a bit of extra money set aside if possible, just in case.

In general, if it seems like little things are somewhat problematic — electronics are on the fritz, communications keep going afoul or delays seem interminable — remember to take a step back, breathe deeply and let your mind wander. These things are bound to happen from time to time. Instead of allowing stress to build up, use the time to rejuvenate yourself with a bit of quiet meditation or introspection.

And don’t forget, the 10th will also see some extra romance once Mercury and Venus take a turn around the dance floor in Scorpio. This combination of communication (Mercury), romance (Venus) and sexy seduction (Scorpio) is sure to help turn up the heat on these cold winter nights!

A bit of introspection can work wonders to help pull you out of a rut or keep your mind clear during more trying times. But how well do you really know yourself? Are you prepared to fully use your strengths (and even your weaknesses) to your favor? The alignment of the planets at the time of your birth plays a critical role in your personal development.

Venus into Leo: Express Your Feelings!

The cosmos is busy with planetary activity as Venus gets ready to move out of emotionally self-protective Cancer into openly entertaining and fun-loving Leo on June 14 to stay there until July 9.

Leo is the sign of the burning heart and with affectionate, sociable Venus in place it will be a time for romance, fun, frivolity and flamboyant parties. Venus in a Fire sign is never backwards about coming forward to express feelings or fancies. So whatever reservations or shyness has been holding you back will now be swept to one side. There might be a greater willingness for some of us to express our affections more openly as well as take risks in matters of the heart. This transit may also find you in a very generous mood.

Flirtatious Uranus which dislikes restraints of any variety is in an easy trine (120 degrees) to Venus on June 14 as well so who knows what may happen? You certainly won’t feel held back by considerations of what anyone else thinks. In long-term relationships there will be a chance to explore new activities and let a breath of fresh air blow through what has become stale.

Venus then is in trine to Jupiter on June 15, which is sugary sweet and amiable. You’ll want to gloss over difficulties, smooth off rough edges and be positive. by

Uranus Is On The Move

I love these updates by the team, they are so helpful. Some people believe that knowing too much about the activities in the cosmos and the energies traveling through our lives is not only not a good idea but is not helpful at all. Personally, I think the opposite, knowing what’s going on around us helps us prepare ourselves in the journey. We must have strength of will and discipline to not be consumed by it, but instead use the information to make better choices for ourselves and create the life we want. …the tools to build our lives.

This astrology update is very good, it clearly describes the end of an era and the coming into a new one…to me ^_^ I hope you have as much fun reading it as I did.

The seventh planet from the Sun is blue-green in colour with bright clouds, multiple rings and strange moons.
The third largest planet in the Solar System, Uranus is named after the Greek god of the heavens and was the first planet to be discovered through a telescope.
Uranus has a total of 13 rings and 27 known moons, all named after characters in works by William Shakespeare and Alexander Pope. A day on the planet lasts 17 hours while a year on Uranus is equivalent to 84 Earth years.

Uranus in Aries: Promote Your Uniqueness!

Uranus is the planet of rebellion. It brings with it a new way of looking at things and its approach is best met with an expanded consciousness. Originality, inventions, computers, cutting-edge technologies and future events are all ruled by this planet. Uranus sees no need for the status quo, preferring instead to break with tradition and create a new mold. It takes Uranus 84 years to complete its trip around the zodiac and it changes signs every seven years or so.

On May 26-27, Uranus will dip its first toe-in-the-water into Aries, a planet it has not been in for 84 years. However, this is for a brief sojourn, since it will retrograde back into Pisces on August 14, and will get into proper forward gear in Aries only in March 2011.

Uranus wakes things up and rattles the bars of the cage you’ve constructed around one area of your life. You’ll suddenly find out where you’ve been compromising too much, trying to fit yourself into a square hole to suit others when really you’re a round peg. Uranus wants you to exert your independence and promote your uniqueness. Be yourself no matter who you startle or shock. Admittedly it isn’t always co-operative and can be downright rebellious but it will trail blaze you into the future. Uranus is the torchbearer who leads the way into the unknown or into what you haven’t previously experienced. It may feel initially unsettling but the end result will be to liberate you if you accept the challenge.

Aries is the first sign of the zodiac, fiery, full of initiative and energy. The combination of Uranus and Aries will be revitalizing, a kick start to get you moving faster. It’ll clear your head of cobwebs and odd delusions which have been fostered by Uranus in Pisces. You’ll be moving straight ahead without a moment to waste.

Just three hours before Uranus shifts sign there is a Full Moon in Sagittarius. Cancer and the other two Water signs, Scorpio and Pisces may be hyper-sensitive since they tend to react to the mood swings of the Moon on the opposite side of the zodiac from the Sun. But, this is one of the less emotional Full Moons of the year so they won’t be edgy for long.

Festive December

I Believe God Wants You To KNow

..that the opposite of a correct statement is a false statement. But the opposite of a profound truth may well be another profound truth.

Niels Bohr said that, and he was right. In fact, there have been few statements in the history of statement-making that were more accurate than that one. So be aware and stay awake! The Law of Opposites sometimes leads you to a Divine Dichotomy.

Two opposing truths can exist simultaneously in the same space. Do not therefore assume that That Which Opposes You is That Which Is Not Good For You. It may be just the reverse.

Neale Donald Walsch

Let’s welcome the festive month of December and celebrate the season!

December is a hectic month for most of us, and the cosmos seems to match the frenzied pace as 2008 comes to a close!

This is a month when planets are forming squares. A square is a major astrological aspect and is present when two planets are 90 degrees from each other. The essence of a square is friction. Things happen, and they’re no small matter. The energy surrounding a square is forceful, intense and powerful.

On December 4, Mercury squares Uranus and your mind will be buzzing with ideas. On the 5th, the Sun conjuncts Mars and they will be within an orb of eight degrees to each other. The sheer energy of the duo can become unbelievably productive or very explosive. This is a good time to avoid ego battles. On the 6th, Mercury squares Saturn and you will need to defend your point of view. The Sun squares Uranus on the 10th, and the challenge is to break free from old self-definitions. On the 11th, Mars squares Uranus creating a rebellious combination — be ready for a challenge, yoo-hoo! On the 12th, the Sun squares Saturn and self-assessment is emphasized. Also, on the 12th, Mercury enters Capricorn stabilizing your thinking — it’s a good time to plan! And on the 15th, Mars squares Saturn and you will find yourself suddenly stopped in your tracks. Delays normally mark this period, and plans and projects will get stalled for some time. On the 22nd the Sun conjuncts Pluto — conjunctions mark new beginnings, and this particular one is powerful and it requires you to be clear about where you direct your energy — otherwise someone else is likely to take charge. Finally, on December 28, Mars conjuncts Pluto — use the strength and power of this energy to direct it toward something you want to achieve.

December 12 also brings an emotional full Moon with the Saturn-Uranus opposition squaring the full Moon and with Mars sitting next to the Sun. This is a good time to keep your cool. The corresponding new Moon in Capricorn, on the 27th, is the last new Moon of the year, and is fitting as we reflect upon this past year and plan for the new one.

On December 21, the Sun enters Capricorn and we celebrate the Winter Solstice. This is a great time to reflect upon the past and make plans for your future as the Sun illumines a pathway toward the achievement of your goals. And finally Saturn turns retrograde on the last day of 2008. The planet of karma and discipline goes retrograde once a year for about four-and-a-half months. This planet in retrograde is a taskmaster, making us work with extra effort or making us think deeply and contemplate our actions or the world around us. Take this opportunity to breathe and to do things the right way the first time around. Courtesy of

Let the Divine Energy flow through you this month and engulf in its joyful vibe. Pay extra attention to your thoughts, as you revise your “check-off list” for the coming year of 2009, of the Gregorian calendar. I hope you enjoy yourself this month and allow the approaching days of celebration to inspire you to vibrate Happy Energy. And don’t forget, there are always reasons to engage in joyful celebration. The more celebratory energy you “produce” the more you send off into the air, spreading it throughout the world. This is how we heal the planet, and reduce the negative energies that dwell over it’s green and watery surface. Remember that whatever you celebrate make sure you do exactly that … celebrate! Bring happiness into your life, let the joyful energy surround you, blessing your home, your path, and every choice you make.

Divine Blessings, and very Merry Holidays!!!
