Hi, I hope this finds you well and in good health. Congratulations! You have survived elcipse season. Now you may continue your regularly scheduled program until November 29, 2020, when we will have another eclipse.  In the meantime, breathe and relax!

Now let’s start with the 3 Astro Highlights of the week from of July 6, 2020  to July 12, 2020.

First Astro Highlight.

Aquarius Quote

The first Astro Highlight of the week is on Monday, July 6, 2020, when the moon enter Aquarius. When the moon is in Aquarius, we tend to favor the intellectual over the emotional. We want to be intellectually stimulated especially in the areas of innovation, technology, and humanity.  It is a great day to socialize online, or support a charity. It’s not a good day spend time alone doing the same routine.

Second Astro Highlight.

The second Astro Highlight is on Wednesday, July 8, 2020, when Mercury retrograde in Cance sextile Uranus in Taurus. This transit brings exciting news and conversations among people.  Daily routines may take an unexpected turn or a sudden change. Also, you have flashes of insight almost like intuition or psychic like ability or dreams bring new and different solutions to problems. It’s a good time to explore new and creative ideas.

Third Astro Highlight.

The third Astro Highlight is on Sunday, July 12, 2020, when Mercury goes direct in Cancer. When Mercury goes direct, it’s like waking up from a dream. Finally! No more challenges, mix up or delays in the areas of information, communication,  technology, and travel. No more delays. But wait! Not so fast.  We are still in the retrograde shadow peiod, which means we have another fourteen (14) days to properly have things go back to normal. The energy is less challenging at this time.  I would still check and re-check dates, appointments, travel times, text messages, and emails. Also, I would wait until July 26 to buy new appliances and electronics.

I hope this information is helpful and useful. Have an excellent week!


3 Astro Highlights of the Week: June 29, 2020 – July 5, 2020

Hi, I hope this finds you well and in good health!

Before starting on the 3 Astro Highlights of the Week, I would like to take this opportunity to say Happy Birthday to USA, which is celebrating a birthday on July 4, 2020.

USA Solar Return.

USA Solar Return

The solar return chart of the United States show that we will have a year concentrated on taxes, sex and sex abuse, financial support, insurance, the occult, aliens, and secrets coming to light. As to the job market, there will be unexpected changes with more technology usage. Maybe jobs will feel less of servitude and more of providing good quality service.

The healthcare system will go through a radical change as well. Lastly, we will all be driven to work hard and reach success. It will be a year filled with a lot of twists and turns with a little bit of surprises.

3 Astro Highlights.

Now let’s start with the 3 Astro Highlights of the week starting from June 29, 2020 to July 5, 2020.

First Astro Highlight.

Jupiter conjunct Pluto

The first Astro Highlight of the week is on Tuesday, June 30, 2020, when Jupiter in Capricorn conjunct Pluto in Capricor for a second time. The third time these two (2) planets meet again will be on November 12, 2020. Please note that both planets are retrograde. We may see more talks about government aid, revisiting stay home orders, and certain businesses closing again since the virus on the rise. The key to all of this is to transform the negative into positive in this new world. We are invited to transform and grow a new vision that works for all of us during these uncertain times. We must strengthen our faith and know that fear is only an illusion.

Second Astro Highlight.

Saturn Retrograde in Capricorn

The second Astro Highlight is on Wednesday, July 1, 2020, when Saturn retrogrades back into Capricorn. This is a reminder that we still have some unfinished business having to do with structure, responsibility, displicine, and karma. We have to reevaluate our commitments and see what we wish to invest our time in.

Third Astro Highlight.

Full Moon, Lunar Eclipse in Capricorn

The third Astro Highlight of the week is on Sunday, July 5, 2020. We have a full moon, lunar eclipse at 13 degrees of Capricorn. This lunar eclipse opposes Mercury retrograde and trines Uranus in Taurus. This opposition with Mercury retrograde indicates that communication is important but it may be distorted and unclear making it difficult to resolve issues.

The lunar eclipse trines Uranus in Taurus bring sudden confirmation of emotions. You are able to express emotions without getting upset. It may be an opportunity to recognize your feelings for a bad situation and be able to heal and move on. Sudden insight of oneself can lead to self awareness.

Lastly, this is not a good time to do intentions, moonwater, rituals, etc. since the energy is strong, forceful, and conflicting. Also, this energy can last up to 6 months.

I hope this information is helpful and useful. Have an excellent week!


3 Astro Highlights of the week: June 22 – June 28

Astro Podcast – 3 Astro Highlights of the week: June 22 – June 28

Hi! I hope you are well and healthy. Here are the 3 Astro Highlights of the week from of June 22 to June 28.

First Astro Highlight.

Neptune Retrograde in Pisces

The first Astro Highlight of the week is on Monday, June 22, when the Neptune retrograde in Pisces at 20°57′ until November 28, 2020, at 18°09′ of Pisces, making this the 6th planet in retrograde. Neptune rules self-sacrifice, victimization, false accusation, scandal, and slander. Neptune retrograde makes us see the truth of our reality and is often quite painful, especially if you have used drugs, alcohol, gambling, or porn to escape.

When Neptune retrogrades, the veil of illusions and fantasies come down and we are forced to face our fears and anxieties. The further you are from your truth, the bigger the shock. Neptune retrograde can show the source of the pain from which you seek to escape. You may then feel humiliated, betrayed, scared, anxious, or guilty. Neptune retrograde is the ideal time for spiritual self-development. Tools that are helpful during this period are: self-help books, counseling meditation, Yoga, Tarot, astrology, swimming, and a healthy diet.

Second Astro Highlight.

The second Astro Highlight is on Thursday, June 25, 2020,  when Venus goes direct at 5 degress of Gemini. Problems with love and money may become unfrozen. We move out of miscommunications to communicating in a clear and concise matter. In 2 weeks, you may resume your beauty regimes and buying clothes and luxury items.

Third Astro Highlight.

Mars in Aries

The third Astro Highlight of the week is on Sunday, June 28, when Mars enters Aries. Mars, the planet of energy and drive, has come home to the sign it rules, Aries. Mars will remain in Aries until January 2021. The next 6 months will be filled with action and stimulation. You will have a lot of desire and passion to initiative in your love life, passion projects, and other areas of your life. For example, if Mars in Aries is transiting your 5th house, you want to express yourself creatively, start a new romanace or go on dates, if single. If attached,  insert more more passion into your relationship.

Mars in Aries is about the desire to take physical chances, high energy drive, being brave and bold, thriving on obstacles and challenges and quick to take the initiative. However, weaknesses seen in Mars in Aries are aggressive, bad-tempered, headstrong, can’t take orders; rash and impetuous; careless and accident-prone; prone to premature burn-out; can’t finish things, and overly competitive. The area of your life described by the house or houses Aries occupies is where you can take action in:

  • fight for yourself or someone else
  • pursue a passion project/hobby
  • launch your project/job search/exercise regime

For example, if you have Aries in the first house of your natal chart, you can now take action into a good work out routine to improve your physical body and health.

I hope this information is helpful and useful. Have an excellent week!


3 Astro Highlights: June 15, 2020 to June 21, 2020

Hi! I hope you are well and healthy. Here are the 3 Astro Highlights of the week from of June 15, 2020, to June 21, 2020.

First Astro Highlight.

Aries Moon Quote
Aries Moon

The first Astro Highlight of the week is on Monday, June 15, 2020, when the moon is in Aries. Aries is the leader of the pack and is always the first in line to get things going. Aries is the initiator.

It is a good day to start a new project, play sports or exercise, and for solving problems. Dental visits are not recommended on this day.

Second Astro Highlight.

Mercury Retrograde

The second Astro Highlight is on June 18, 2020, when Mercury starts retrograding in Cancer, making it the fifth planet retrograding. But don’t panic. We have survive the pandemic, murder hornets, and other things so we most certainly can survive 5 planets retrograding. The retrogrades are all about reviewing and changing the obsolete. 

But the way to use this energy for your benefit is by: reviewing, reconnecting, realigning, reorganize, and refocus on the areas of life that need your attention. More on Mercury Retrograde, what to do during Mercury Retrograde, and what not to do during Mercury Retrograde, on the blog.

Third Astro Highlight.

Solar Eclipse in Cancer

The third Astro Highlight of the week is on June 21, 2020, when there is a New Moon in Cancer, solar eclipse at 0 degrees.  A solar eclipse is just like a regular new moon. However, a solar eclipse is more powerful because the Moon darkens the Sun. This is the great time to make a fresh start. Search for new and inventive ways to make progress in your behaviors and habits. 

Also, this eclipse comes with Saturn which means it comes with a lot of responsibilities versus family life. Other areas that are brought to light are: emotional security, home, mother, wounds, and roots. This is not a good time to do intentions and rituals since the energy is strong, forceful, and conflicting. Also, this energy can last up to 6 months.

I hope this information is helpful and useful. Have an excellent week!


La Casa De Papel and the Zodiac Signs

Money Heist, also known as Casa de Papel in Spanish, is one of the biggest drama series on Netflix. If you haven’t watched this series yet, you need to watch it right now!

In my humble opinion, I think the story line and the actors are phenomenal! I truly enjoy watching all the twists and turns that keep me at the edge of my seat. The writers of the series have done such a great job developing the characters that I think I am able to shed some light on each of the character’s zodiac signs (their sun signs). Be warned, there may be some spoiler alerts from Season 3 below.

The Zodiac Signs of the Characters of Casa De Papel.  

The Professor / Sergio Marquina.

The Professor

The Professor, in the first and second season, we see him go over plans with the crew. Although the idea to rob the Royal Mint of Spain came from his father, he reviews, revises, and sets in motion the heist. He was meticulous with every single aspect of the robbery. He had a backup plan to the backup plan. He already knew what people’s reactions would be in different situations. His attention to detail and accuracy to the probability of outcome was impeccable. For these reasons, I assigned the zodiac sign of Virgo to the Professor.  He is shy and detail oriented. He is clean and neat and doesn’t like people touching his stuff.

There is a scene with Tokyo and The Professor at the Toledo house, where Tokyo makes fun of The Professor’s pjs and touches his origami birds. The moment she touches his origami birds you can immediately see that he is uncomfortable. This Virgo likes organization, neatness, and cleanliness.

Tokyo.

When I hear her says “Jarana” (War), I immediately think of Aries. Aries is about war and fighting. Tokyo was born a warrior. She joins the heist because she has nothing to lose. She is passionate and short-fused. Many of her decisions come from impulse and how she is feeling at that precise moment. Her impulsiveness leads her to be irresponsible. She only sees the consequences of her actions when its too late. It appears that she only cares about herself. She loves intensely, passionately, and doesn’t hold back.           

In Season 3, she’s on a beautiful secluded island with her lover, Rio, enjoying life. However, her restlessness starts to show when she invites people from a boat to party with them. She has a fire within her and she knows cannot be contained. Rio knows it too. That’s why she decides to leave Rio and let loose her wildness. It’s not that she doesn’t love him, she simply bores easily. Again, she is only thinks of herself and doesn’t realize how much she is hurting Rio.

Berlin.

Andrés de Fonollosa Gonzalvez a/k/a Berlin is a jewel robber who lives an extremely expensive lifestyle. We see in Season 3 that Berlin was staying at a monastery and had acquired some lavish paintings. I associate Berlin with Gemini since Geminis are known to be duplicitous, liars, and smooth talkers. Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury. Mercury, also known as Hermes, was known to be a cunning trickster, stealing things from the other gods and hiding them. Not that Berlin steals and hides things but he is a robber.

Also, Berlin is unable to empathize with other people although, he also has a compulsive need to please others especially when he interacts with the hostages. I have noticed that air signs like to please people in some way, shape or form. 

Berlin’s behavior is ever changing. He is courteous only when people follow his orders. You don’t know when he will be happy or sad or act normal especially since he has a terminal illness. As a Gemini, he was flexible and is able to change and adhere to situation at hand with a drop of the hat.

Nairobi.

Nairobi was a counterfeiter after her boyfriend left her pregnant and abandoned her. Her end goal is to be with her son. Throughout the seasons, we see that Nairobi is detail-oriented like a Virgo. In Season 2, the elderly worker helping produce the money states that she has been the best boss that he has every had. 

Also, Nariobi possesses the Virgo quality of helping others. She is always willing to help others in need. In Season 1, she sees that the Ambassador’s daughter is being bullied by her classmates. Nariobi talks to her and empowers her to stand up for herself. In true Virgo form, Nariobi has a good understanding of situations and provides an effective solutions to problems.

Rio.

What sign is able to comprehend and even tame a wild Arian? A Libra. These two, Rio and Tokoyo, are able to keep each other in check. Rio is the epitome of a Libra. He’s handsome, intelligent, and a people pleaser. Don’t let his good looks fool you since he is a hacker/ child prodigy who learned to program at age 6. He’s probably too intelligent for his own good.

As to him being a people pleaser, there is a scene where he’s in the bathroom with Tokyo and they are getting ready to complete the heist. She tells him that no matter what that she is ready to go to war and he said that he is too and wouldn’t leave her side. I took at that as him saying that as a way to please her because he’s in love with her. And like most Librans, he needs to be in a relationship with her.

Denver.

Scorpios are the zodiac sign that has it the hardest in life. These people go through a lot in life and if they’re not careful can be susceptible to drugs. Denver is not born with a silver spoon in his mouth. In fact, he’s born to a drug addict mother and an average hard working father. His life has not been easy and that is why he become a thug. Eventually, he turns to drugs as a way of coping with his insecurities and inadequacies.

Despite all these hardships, he meets and falls in love with Monica. Like a true Scorpio in love, he immerses and loses himself to the point of being transformed by love. Monica brought out in him that gentle, protective, and loyal side that is Scorpio. He also displays extreme romantic behavior like getting married to Monica in Bali with all the elephants and rituals.

Helsinki.

Helsinki

He is one brute that doesn’t say much but lets his actions do the talking. He’s a tank on the outside and a big old teddy bear on the inside. Some of his qualities are the same as a Taurus. He is patient, strong, devoted, and stubborn. Taurus love passionately, similar to a Scorpio, but they love with the intention of possessing you. They treat the ones they love like possession. Their possession over someone is the way they show love, protection, and devotion. Love to them has to be tangible since they connected with physical bodies. 

Season 3, we see Helsinki have a strong and physical connection to Palermo. However, Helsinki knows that he can’t possess Palermo for various reasons. One of the reasons is that Helsinki is old-fashioned, loyal, and persistent and Palermo is none of those things. Palermo is also quick to say that he doesn’t want those things but we all know deep down inside he wanted all that with Berlin.

Raquel Murillo “Lisboa”.

Inspector Murillo was one of  the most competent and respectful people in her industry. She embodies a lot of the qualities of a Capricorn. She may have been a battered woman but she’s not ashamed of it and certainly doesn’t let that stop her from reaching her goals. Some her qualities are realistic, relentless, practical, good leader, and ambitious. She never gave up on the pursuit of catching The Professor. She was determined to catch The Professor and this quality helped her find his hide out. Once a Capricorn puts a goal in his or her mind, nothing will stop them from attaining that goal. They always reach their goals through hard work, persistence, and determination.

At the end of season 2, it appears that she is taking a leap of faith to go and be with The Professor. However,  what needs to be understood is that she is a practical person. She weighed her options. In her head, she prepared a pros and cons list for stay or leaving. Obviously, leaving with The Professor was a practical decision. She knows that by staying she has so could lose her daughter and her mother. In true Capricorn form, she weighs out the outcome and does what’s best for her and her family.

Mónica Gaztambide “Stockholm”.

Monica is the secretary and mistress of the Director of the Royal Mint of Spain, Arturito. She really thought that they were in love but it was all an illusion. Her world came crashing down when she told Arturito that she was pregnant with his baby and he didn’t believe her. In fact, he told her that he would not leave his wife for her. Pisces’ tend to create fantasies to escape their reality. Their illusion is met with a hard, cold wake up call causing them to be sad and fearful. Pisces’ ruling planet is Neptune which is illusions.

Also, as a Pisces, she became a victim of Arturito’s lies and a victim of the heist. Pisces, in their act of selflessness and always wanting to help others, end up being a victim. In Season 1, she was almost killed by Berlin because Arturito asked her to steal the phone so that they could escape but she was caught. She sacrificed herself so that the other hostages could be freed.

Other qualities that a Pisces possess are non judgmental and forgiving. Monica fell in love with her captor, Denver. She saw passed his defects and saw a gentle side of him. She never judged him and forgave him for holding her hostage the moment she joined the team. She is an incorrigible romantic. She is vey loyal and generous with Denver. She is willing to stand by his side no matter what.

As for the other characters from Season 3, I will be doing a Part II after Season 4 comes out. I hope that Season 4 will delve into the characters’ backgrounds especially that of Alicia, who I think is an Aquarius. More to come after Season 4 comes out! 


Super New Moon in Leo

New Moon in Leo on July 31, 2019

I absolutely love it when the moon enters Leo since this is my moon. This moon is all about shining in the most dramatic way possible and emotions on the high  passionate scale. The moon in Leo is the “Who the eff are you?” and the “Off with your head” moon. And yes, I have said these statements once or twice in the past.

Those of us with a Leo moon are extremely creative, fiery, dramatic and passionate with our feelings. We can be considered drama kings or queens. We are a lot of fun and have a ton of friends. We must learn to follow our heart no matter what and If there is no excitement in our lives, we become unhappy. This moon needs stability, loyalty, and trustworthy relationship. Treat us like the king or queen that we are, and you will be treated the same.

July 31, 2019 Aspects of the Day

Leo the Lion

Leo Moon Conjuncts Leo Sun. – Super New Moon.

A new moon signifies that the moon and sun are in conjunction; together. Therefore the super new moon in Leo is conjunct to the Leo Sun. While the new moon is in Leo, it’s a great time to get a haircut or lavish yourself with a little bling, preferably with some gold jewelry.  You may want to dress in yellow or orange with gold jewelry. Also, this new moon provides inspiration to get creative. It is a time to be courageous, start new projects and make new plans. It’s time to come out of the darkness and into the light!

Leo Sun

New Moon in Leo conjunct Venus.

At this time, you will feel relaxed and celebrate life with friends and family. You will want to socialize, be out and shine. You may pamper yourself by buying new clothes and jewelry. You may want to beautify your home. You may have a tendency to go overboard so be mindful when shopping.

Mercury goes direct in Cancer.

FINALLY! Mercury is getting out of retrograde and moving forward. Communications and travel will start to move forward. You will see less errors now. But don’t get too excited just yet. Things don’t go back to normal quickly because we are still in the shadow period. Take time to reflect everything that went wrong during the retrograde period. You need to see what you learned during this time and make plans so that we can apply the knowledge learned to our everyday life. Remember the retrograde period showed us where we need to do work so that we can evolve.

Leo Sun conjuncts Leo New Moon Squares Uranus in Taurus.

The sun and moon will square Uranus which can cause a breakup or a breakthrough. This energy calls for a shake up or change in routine. If you encounter a lot of disruption and sudden changes, try to go with the flow. In the long run, these changes can be in your favor. There is no sense in going against this energy. Sometimes, if you can’t beat them, joining them is the best solution for this aspect.

Leo Super New Moon

Happy Super New Moon!


5 Things not to do during Mercury Retrograde

5 things not to do during mercury retrograde

The Mercury Retrograde period is a super frustrating and confusing time. But that doesn’t mean everything will end up wrong. Sometimes Mercury Retrograde can work in your favor especially if you know the proper steps to surviving Mercury Retrograde. Here are 5 Things not to do during a Mercury Retrograde.

Top 5 Things not to do During Mercury Retrograde

5 Things not to do during Mercury Retrograde.

1. Don’t buy new appliances/electronic/new cars. Should you buy a new appliance or electronic during the Mercury Retrograde period, the appliance or electronic can turn out to be a lemon. Or you may have buyer’s remorse. If you must buy a big ticket item such as a stove or car, buy it used.

2. Don’t text, call, or send smoke signals to an ex-lover/partner. Resist the urge of contacting them. They are your past for a reason. Either way, they may be contacting you. This is the season to running into old loves, friends, etc. Basically, you have a high probability of running into your past during this period.

3. Don’t plan to launch a magazine, business, website, or publish a book. There will be delays in the launch or opening of business or there will be a lot of hiccups or things happening unexpectedly. You may not get the great reception that you may have hoped for.

4. Don’t have surgery unless it is a dire emergency like a life or death situation. At this point in time, mistakes are bound to happen whether you like it or not. There is just too much room for error even with the best doctors. If you can postpone your surgery until after the Mercury Retrograde, then please do so. You don’t want to have the same surgery twice.

5. Don’t start a new job or buy/sell house. Why? If you start a new job during a Mercury Retrograde there is a big possibility that the job you interviewed for may not be what you expected or your position changes and it’s not what you had hope for. As buying or selling house, you may run into unforeseen problems like termite or roof issues or there will be delays with the closing or closing date.

Now, I’m not saying to go and hide under a rock. And this is most certainly NOT a period that you should be afraid of. The information provide above is merely a guideline to surviving this period. If you take the proper steps, you can survive Mercury Retrograde. Good luck!


5 Things to Do During Mercury Retrograde

5 things to do when Mercury is Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde starts July 7, 2019 and ends July 31, 2019. The Mercury retrograde periods are infamous for delays, tardiness, stealing, cheating, electronic crashing, breakdowns, breakups, and miscommunications. All this can be frustrating, however, this doesn’t mean you can’t survive it. You CAN survive Mercury Retrograde especially when you have the right information as to what to do during a mercury retrograde. Here are 5 things you should do when Mercury is in retrograde:

  1. Be flexible. You can expect a lot delays and tardiness when Mercury is in retrograde so you need to be flexible when scheduling a meeting, a flight, or hanging out with friends. Expect to be at places a lot longer that you originally intent to be at.
  2. Backup. Back all electronics and data such as photos, documents, files, etc. This is a time period where you can lose so much value information especially if you are not backing it up.
  3. Confirm. Check, re-check and confirm all meetings, deadlines,dates, and appointments. Some of us will miss appointments and deadlines if we don’t re-check and confirm dates and time. Plus, it doesn’t hurt to re-check and confirm.
  4. Reconnect and reminisce. Reconnect and reminisce with old friends. Plan a get together and then take a stroll down memory lane and remember all the good times that were had.
  5. Write in a Journal. During this time, there is a lot of confusion and misunderstanding which can lead to contact an ex. There is a reason why that person is an ex. Leave the ex in the past and write out all of your intense and bottled up feelings.

If all else fails, go with the flow. Don’t try to fight this energy because this energy want you to stop and slow down enough to review things in your life. And believe me, this energy will turn your world upside down like cause an accident while you’re on the way to hospital to give birth. I believe having the right information can help you lead a better and fruitful life. Good luck!


Mercury in Gatorade

WHAT? Gatorade? No! It’s in R-E-T-R-O-G-R-A-D-E. People, let’s not freak out. It’s not the end of the world even if we already have other planets retrograding. Yes, this is a time for a lot of miscommunications, misunderstandings, disruption in technology, and confusion. There may be some cheating and stealing involved during this period, as well. But still, it’s really not that bad at all. This is a time to reflect and make better choices.

Mercury

I’ve already had friends and clients reach out to me to ask “What does Mercury Retrograde mean?” and “How is this going to affect me?” and my response is: This isn’t a time to worry about just Mercury Retrograde, instead what they should really do is look at ALL the aspects in their life and do away with things, situations, and/or people who no longer meet their values or hold a true meaning in their lives. It is really ok to leave friendships, relationships, etc. that are toxic because we all come into this world to learn and evolve. 

And if you really want to see where Mercury retrograde will affect you, look at your chart and see which house the transiting Mercury Retrograde is in. The house in your natal astrology chart will give you an indication as to where all the disruption will be. Continue reading to see how Mercury Retrograde affects each house.

Mercury Retrograde

What does Mercury Retrograde mean?

The planet Mercury rules communication, electronics, travel, contracts, and automobiles, and thieves. Mercury goes retrograde about three (3) times a year. It is said that Mercury moves in an opposite direction to planet Earth, so it gives the illusion that Mercury is moving backwards or moving in retrograde. But in reality, Mercury is just moving slower than Earth.

Honestly, Mercury in retrograde is really not a bad thing because it is an opportunity to take a pause in life and re-look at what’s going on in life to be able to review and make better choices and decisions. Yes, there are moments of confusion but it’s at those times that you need to step up and ask for clarification. At this time, you want to focus on doing the following:

  • review
  • reassess
  • re-think
  • reevaluate
  • renovate
  • renew
  • redo
  • reflect
  • realign
  • re-check
  • relearning
  • revisit
  • reconnect
  • reorganize
  • refine
  • refocus
  • release

Mercury Retrograde through the Houses.

If you know where you Mercury is in your natal chart, then you will be able to see where you will be affected. Below is my interpretation of Mercury Retrograde in the 12 houses.

Mercury Retrograde in the 1st house: Relearning and getting to know yourself again.

Mercury Retrograde in the 2nd house: Re-evaluate and reassess your values and finances.

Mercury Retrograde in the 3rd house: Relearn a language and refine your skills. Possible breakdowns in automobiles. Get your cars checked.

Mercury Retrograde in the 4th house: Reorganize your home. Re-check your alarm systems to avoid break-ins.

Mercury Retrograde in the 5th house: Reconnecting with ex-lovers whether you want to or not. Reconnect with a passion or hobby that was long forgotten.

Mercury Retrograde in the 6th house: Redo your routines and diets.

Mercury Retrograde in the 7th house: Re-evaluate your relationships with partners. A breakdown in communication can led to a breakup.

Mercury Retrograde in the 8th house: Redefine your definition of death. Possibly a time for rebirth of yourself and spirituality.

Mercury Retrograde in the 9th house: Re-check all of your flight information. Possibility of missing flights. Also, re-think how you can expand your higher consciousness.

Mercury Retrograde in the 10th house: Refocus your career goals and status.

Mercury Retrograde in the 11h house: Reconnect with friends. Revive old dreams.

Mercury Retrograde in the 12th house: Review all your fears and release it from your life, including your Karma.

All the craziness of tardiness, break downs, and miscommunications will be over once Mercury is done retrograding. In the meantime, hang in there and don’t rush to make quick decisions.
