Mercury Retrograde – what to expect. 

   “Mercury retrograde calls for us to pull back our energy from outside sources, and focus it within. It asks us to engage in a brief period of rest, gathering and nurturing, as we prepare for the seeds we have been sowing to spring to growth. It is the ultimate hermit scenario. The purpose of hibernation is to preserve and protect what we have from the scolding eyes of winter. We must add warmth (energy) to our investments, and not allow ourselves to be picked apart by external distractions. This is a time of planning, calculation and counsel. Those of us who previously experienced a dark night of the soul will have had so much information being downloaded, therefore self counsel is vital. Those of us transmuting darker energies and gaining access to the akashic records//DNA awakening will also require time to process this. This has been a truly accelerated time, with so many changes, shifts and new experiences being brought into awareness, that can be scary and off putting to even the most spiritual of souls! Time to sit back, relax, and take in all of the new lessons learnt and knowledge gained is paramount to applying it in future! Most advise against taking financial or romantic action during mercury retrograde, as our mind is sort of in a mental fog, but I say plan and study new approaches to old situations, even if you do not intend to implement these transactions straight away. When we come out of retrograde, we will have clearer understanding of how to handle situations that may not have served us well in the past. We will also be aware of certain packages or bondages that kept us in repetitive cycles. This can only be achieved through self reflection. Energy vampires who are less conscious of mercury’s effects may seek to tap into the energy of others for a boost during this time. For this reason again, I advise drawing inward, protecting ones own energy, and finding ways to nourish, as oppose to depleting it’s supply.                                                              Retrograde for relationships.              As retrograde comes around, we find ourselves revisiting many places and people we thought we had abandoned. This may be mentally, or May in fact be through physical contact, where we receive messages from people of significance from the past, or rather we feel the compulsion to contact others from the past. This is because retrograde is all about hermit energy, reflecting inward, introspection, experiencing nostalgia and spending some time reanalysing past events. We can find ourselves remeniscing intently during retrograde, thinking about past lovers or acquaintances. I mean it’s okay for those people to return, (even if it’s just for retrograde), they allow us to let go in many cases, and not necessarily just of them, but also of the time period they belong to in our lives, who we were then, and what we believed etc. The best thing about people from the past returning is, you get to see how very much you have changed, you fluid motioned being ✨🙏🏽 Past lovers who you still hold spiritual ties with will probably be on your mind a lot, but keep in mind the significance of the Union will also be magnified to you energetically. If there was true love there, you will long for love, if there was abuse, you will feel abused once more. To book a unique reading regarding past lovers, whether it be tarot or advice, message me via TAROTSBYMECopyRight2015           If you are enduring a twin flame separation period, retrograde will intensify your longing for them, I am sorry to inform you.. This will also include intensified dreams about them, and even sensing their energy, but fear not, it will strengthen the love on their side of the pool for you also. The less conscious twin will find this coming period extremely uncomfortable as they struggle to get you out of their mind, though you are so deeply embedded in their conscious. Every time you focus your energy on thoughts of your twin, memories with your twin, you are sending energetic stimulants directly to their heart chakra, in the form of, ‘remember me’. The less conscious twin has absolutely no idea what is happening, and will fear he is losing his grip on reality and himself entirely. Ah, but this is just in time for the ascension waves of September.. The universe has been screaming at this person, ‘hey, when are you going to identify with your truthful spiritual nature?’ And this is why you, being the more spiritual twin are so drawn to him/her at this time, you know that your spiritual energy is JUST what they need.

From a very early age, it was clear to see that my path was one paved with difference. Inspiration, intuition, and imagination gripped me long before I could find my feet. I walk the life path of 7, so I am irreversibly bound to the realm of mysticism, spiritualism, and esotericism. I do not belong to this world, for I am a 'tween', always in between worlds. I am the commander of serpents, belonging to the glorious, and forbidden 13th zodiac of ophiuchus. Hidden in secrecy, to one day return as the divine feminine awakens. Love, is my speciality, and has governed my existence. I now use a combination of intuition, natural healing ability, astrology, psychology, sociology, and numerology to bring clarity, healing, and understanding to all. With the energy of ophiuchus running through me, I could never turn away from the path of healing, nor teaching. Not only does ophiuchus represent healing, but also the crevices of the dark shadows that we must crawl through to find our path to healing, in other words, the shamanic process of death, and re-birth, which has pretty much been the summation of my existence thus far. Long gone are my days of depression, I have re-claimed my divinity, and I desire nothing more than to help you to also claim yours. Not only the seeker, I am also the lover. Part of the many trials that I have endured upon this empathic journey, are that of heart break, and abandonment consciousness. For this reason, I have become an advocate for healthy loving relationships, and the harmony between the two sexes. This has taken me on a deep quest, to uncover ancient old secrets, and deeply entrenched beliefs, about man, about woman, and what this reads about where we are to. My eternal life drive and motto revolves around this simple theory, 'Where there is an outcome, there has existed a cause'. My particular areas of interest and expertise lie with sociology, psychology, spiritualism, philosophy, and literary, and creative writing. As I have a deeply intense desire to both serve, and aid humanity, I have naturally been drawn toward topics that have provided me with a more in depth account of societal behaviour, and as it stands, human kind. My roots are as deeply rooted as they can be, stemming from Ghanaian parents, who were raised, and both skilled in the art, and knowledge of superstition, and divination wisdom, it is no surprise that the blood flowing through my veins compels me to do such work, so relentlessly. Unlike other bloggers, this work featured here is not a mere hobby, it is more than just my livelihood, it is the calling of which i cannot ignore. Another prominent focus of mine, is mental illness. Not comfortable, nor fully sold with the western idealisms of the implications of such, i seek research, personal experience, and observation to prove, that many mental illnesses hold spiritual connotation, particularly as the mind is an avid translator of spiritual energies. Follow me on this journey as i discover myself, retrace my roots, fall deeply in love with my heritage, and finally accept my awkward, unorthodox societal position.
