angels3Imagine having the perspective of the angels and invisible teachers that watch over our world for a moment. The insight, clarity and understanding from this vantage point would be astonishing. Being able to experience the mental, emotional and energetic states of all beings as they truly are in each moment would be an amazing perspective to behold. Believe it or not, there are groups of non-physical beings who watch over us individually and our planet as a whole. Each of us has a strong and intimate relationship with these beings that extends beyond our physical reality. They are with us at this very moment, if we can only just be still enough to feel their presence. Usually thought of as angels, guides, teachers and our spiritual family, they assist us by providing intuitive guidance, inspired thought, creative insight and a multitude of other ingenious forms of divine assistance that we cannot fully comprehend right now.

To appreciate and experience this relationship firsthand, it helps to develop stillness of mind through conscious breathing and regular meditation practice. Being receptive is key. Call on your guides in a genuine manner and be open to receiving unexpected forms of assistance. These teachers are found by focusing your attention inward; they are not “out there” somewhere. Even if we deny their existence, their help is still ongoing and available to us, especially in times of great need or danger, where we often act in inexplicable ways without fully realizing why.

Why are these Angels here with us? Part of the reason is to remind us where we really come from and of our true purpose for being in the world. We each have very specific reasons for being in these bodies at this time, which will make full use of the gifts we bring from beyond the physical realm. No matter how wealthy, successful or stimulated we are, until we work towards actualizing this greater purpose, we will always feel unfulfilled and uneasy deep down. It is important that we understand this. We are each here to activate the deeper spiritual Knowledge within ourselves–our true connection to God–which goes far beyond the intellectual mind and is the source of all power and love in the universe.

“Knowledge is the deeper spiritual mind that the Creator has given to each person. It is the source of all meaningful action, contribution and relationships. It is our natural inner guidance system. Its reality is mysterious, but its presence can be directly experienced. Knowledge is remarkably wise and effective in guiding each person in finding his or her right relationships, work and contribution. It is equally effective in preparing one to recognize the many pitfalls and deceptions that exist along the way. It is the basis for seeing, knowing and acting with certainty and strength. It is the foundation of life.” — via Steps to Knowledge

SoH3I would like to share with you a powerful new book called Secrets of Heaven, the latest release from the New Message from God world teachings. The book contains 300 short mystery teachings that have the potential to inspire you at a deep and genuine level. It is a great book that you can pick up at any page and find piercing insights to contemplate and motivate you back on track. I find it incredible that reading just a few short sentences can move me at the level of spirit like some of these passages do.

The hidden truths and wisdom found within these pages were first revealed to messenger Marshall Vian Summers in a series of mysterious angelic encounters starting in 1983 in the deserts of the American Southwest. For the past 30 years, Summers has continued to receive these profound communications, which are now digitally recorded as they are originally received and then transcribed. Listening to the voice that comes through Summers is very unique; it is unlike any human voice I have ever heard and is truly a powerful presence to behold. My inner knowing confirms to me that the Angelic Assembly is speaking through Summers as one voice and this continues to inspire me to be of service while I am here in this body.

“From the depths of Mystery come the Secrets of Heaven. They have come to take you deeper into the experience of mystery and purpose that surrounds your presence in the world. The Angels of Heaven seek to share with you what has long been forgotten in the world. Miraculously, as if whispered across time and space, these secrets have now come to you. You have found them.

At a time of great change in the world, Heaven seeks to reveal to you the long-forgotten truths that once guided the prophets, poets, messengers and mystics throughout the ages. Here the ancient memory and awareness that dwells within you can be rekindled, revealing your greater gifts and purpose in the world. The Secrets of Heaven hold the power to unlock these gifts, deep at the heart of humanity. With these gifts, there is new hope for the world.

Heaven asks you to receive its secrets. Each secret is a window into a greater reality. Each secret is an opportunity to peer through the looking glass, and see ourselves as we are seen from above. Now we are looking through the eyes of Heaven to see ourselves, others and the world as never before.” — from the book cover

The New Message is the most profound and direct set of teachings that I have come across in my life. Why is it so powerful? Because it provides a fresh and universal perspective from the Creator when we need it most. It is not based on any existing world religion and is meant for all regardless of background, religion, culture or creed. It helps us to understand how we fit into a universe that is filled with intelligent life at all levels of evolution — including those beings that do not have our best interests at heart. It has helped me move beyond just a human perspective of all things, beginning with the development of a universal identity and awareness, which allows me to appreciate that we are part of an even bigger panorama of life. It acknowledges the grave challenges that we face now and in the future: surviving the Great Waves of Change and facing extraterrestrial intervention and competition from beyond the world. I find that the New Message addresses these vital issues with piercing clarity and honesty, written in a way that even a 10 year old child could understand it.

While the New Message may be rejected and opposed by many, there is an important message that it aims to make clear: If we do not successfully recognize and navigate the crucial challenges ahead, humanity will face a grave and precipitous decline in the future, leading to tremendous loss and untold suffering. Our world system is very vulnerable in many ways and a great shakeup or collapse in its functioning would change everything. I believe that accepting failure as a possibility is not a negative viewpoint, it is simply recognizing what is possible. What is up ahead is not set in stone, as we are all active contributors to its unfolding, but continuing to sow the seeds of our demise as a collective is not a wise decision.

Right now, we are vastly underestimating the misuse and abuse of our planet and its resources and what this will mean for our future. It is also becoming increasingly evident that we are being visited by an increasing number of extraterrestrial forces both in our skies and underground. In many cases these are beings who are here to deceive us and capitalize on our weaknesses, committing serious violations and abuses to humans worldwide almost totally in secret. I feel that we cannot afford to keep burying our heads in the sand on these issues. Human greed, arrogance and ignorance are some of our biggest vices and they must be overcome if we are to have any chance at becoming a free and self-sufficient interplanetary race. It is up to us to individually reclaim our ability to serve as vehicles for Spirit and Knowledge to express itself through us, for humanity needs strong, dedicated and effective individuals now and in the challenging times ahead.

The fate of humanity will be determined in the next 20 years—the condition of the world, the condition of the human family, the fate and the future of human civilization. You are no longer alone in the world or even in the universe. Of course. You do not know what is occurring and what is coming over the horizon because you are too afraid to see and too arrogant, assuming that you know. That is why the Revelation must be given to show you what you cannot see and do not know. beyond human speculation and estimation. This is embedded in all of the Teachings of the New Message.” — from The Recitation, Apr. 9, 2011

I do not share this with you to incite fear. Rather, I share this with you to inspire your courage and willingness to be of service to a world and race that is truly in need. Your contribution is needed and this is why you came here — to help and serve during this time of difficult transition. So I invite you to consider the following secrets deeply and with your full attention, taking a moment to be with them and allowing them to resonate at a deeper level. There are so many that I would like to share with you, but for brevity’s sake, I have included 45 in this article for you to consider and take from them what you will.

The Angelic Presence

#1: We are above the surface of your world, and yet your environment is as transparent to us as a shallow pond with fish. Even more so, since we have lived in that pond so many times ourselves. How much more we know. If the fish could but listen to the thoughts of its observers who stand over its domain, it could learn of everything else—of the trees and the sky, the flowers, the source of the water that feeds its pond and the destiny of the water that is drained from its pond. It is the same for you. You could learn what lies beyond your domain, for like the fish, you live within a whole universe, not within a little pond. Though the fish may live its entire life in such a small place, it swims in the whole universe, with the sky and the stars above it and below it as well. Is this not also true with you?

#2: We make ourselves public so that you may know our presence and know that there is a Master Plan. It is this Plan that you must now become aware of, for until you do, your life will be aimless, without certain purpose, with only your errors to teach you.

#3: We wish for you all to receive the joy that awaits you. In our world, there is joy. There are very few in this world who can contain the joy that we feel. We are not bound by what cannot succeed. We are not hopeless. We are not alone.

#48: We know how to resolve the difficulties that the world faces because we have resolved them for ourselves.

#133: Many of you will wonder who we are. We are what you will become.

#120: Our names are not known in the world. It is because our charge is not this world alone. There are many Teachers who attend to the world singularly. It is their purpose to do so. And yet our charge is to unite this world and prepare it for the Greater Community.

#231: We are bound to the physical by our obligations and desire to serve, which are the same. We have access to a Greater Reality, yet we exist here. We are nourished by this Greater Reality, and that is why we can exist in our capacity without misery. We serve our Spiritual Family, whom we love. We know our limits. We take full advantage of our strengths. We follow our Teachers, whom you cannot hear. We represent them as they represent those beyond them.

#169: It is not important whether you believe in our presence or not. This can only be known, and belief adds little testimony to it.

The Role of God

#5: God must enter a world where God is not welcome, in ways that do not generate fear and panic amongst those who believe the world is their only reality. It is for this reason that the Will of God manifests itself in subtle and ingenious ways in this world.

#10: God answers through the Teachers. They are God’s answer. They can translate the Will of God into an experience that you can accept, recognize and appreciate. It is through these relationships that the Will of God will become ever present to you.

#285: You need a larger perspective to comprehend the work of God. God is not human. God does not think like a human. God is not made in your image. God has no image. The Source of all life accounts for all life.

Preparation for Great Changes Ahead

#11: Now the old age draws to an end. Difficult will its ending be and turbulent. And yet you are preparing for the advent of this change and the beginning of a new order. The turmoil that you have felt in your individual lives is an indication that you are in preparation for a world in change.

#147: Your world is in a predictable stage of evolution. Think not it is unique, for all civilizations pass through these difficult transition periods. Many of them fail. Humanity is in the process of entering a more mature state.

#220: In this period of time, because you all sense imminent change, you react according to your personal inclinations. Some seek to revitalize old traditions and to establish old roots, while others seek to break all traditions and roots. Some attempt to reach God and escape being in the world, while others fall into despair. These are but different responses to the same basic feeling.

#173: The events to come will require a shift in reality of the Earth’s inhabitants. They must change or struggle against what they now experience. It is but this alone that they anticipate in their attempts to revive the old religions, systems and values, many of which have served a valuable purpose, yet in essence are long past. Are not the preparations of this century with its revivals, its new understandings, its outbreaks of conflict and its technological development but a preparation for what lies beyond in the new centuries to come? Has not all of this been building so rapidly towards a major turning point, as if racing to a finish that is in itself but a new beginning?

Walking The Path

#56: There is a great emphasis placed on those who respond to an inner calling. They have such importance. We gather around them. They hold the promise of renewal and rejuvenation for your world.

#100: Everyone wants to know the answer without making the journey. It is the journey that is the answer.

#158: Your heart will direct you. It is this we have spoken of before. Listen to your heart. It is not your emotions that we speak of, but your Knowledge.

#137: To be set on the path of good does not always look good. To learn of God does not always seem holy. To learn of Wisdom is certainly beyond human logic.

#12: When the mind is joined with Spirit, it is in its true role. It recognizes its function and is capable of fulfilling it perfectly.

#142: Many have attempted to reach God according to their own concepts and have become estranged from life as a result.

Divine Assistance

#241: Inner Guidance is simply the re-establishment of an established relationship. This is its true meaning. Though it seems remarkable to the one who receives it, it is simply a re-establishment of an old bond, as if an old friend has re-entered your life for a specific purpose.

#127: Contact with the Teachers is an exercise in remembering your true mind and your true relationships. The purpose inherent in this is to call you into service.

#128: You are guardians of a treasure unknowingly. Your treasure is your lineage, the accrued learning of all of your activities here and abroad.

#154: If you are to recall your lineage and with it the knowledge of your mission here, you must be able to expand beyond your human identity and affairs and yet bring all that you discover back to serve them.

Higher Purpose

#99: If you have purpose, you will teach it. If you do not have purpose, you must seek it.

#134: Your life has two possibilities. You will find your purpose and fulfill it, or you will not. It is only your success in this matter that you will reflect upon once you leave. For upon leaving the world, you will leave all the world’s preoccupations, leaving you with your one purpose, fulfilled or not.

#179: Inner Knowledge, true purpose, the presence of the Teachers—all sound an inner calling that must grow in strength and scope as it is attended to and utilized, recognized and applied. All that is in contradiction to this at some point will be recognized and relinquished as unwanted, as merely hindering that natural return of the heart.

#83: Knowledge brings responsibility, and purpose always has a calling. Indeed, the function of purpose is the response to a calling. You cannot understand your purpose without acting upon it. This action will call for perhaps a greater participation and understanding than you have ever known.

Learning Beyond The World

#65: Think not there will be an end to learning after you have left the world. This world is only a beginning.

#68: Being within a body in the world necessitates a certain level of ignorance. Accept this. Do not strive for total awareness, or you will neglect what can actually be done here.

#72: Your work now is within the world. You cannot leave here until your work is done. If you destroy your learning vehicle, you will simply have to wait and return again. Indeed, you will be anxious to return, for as you wait, you will recognize the opportunities that you missed. Recognizing your errors, you will be anxious to return.

#145: Your learning predicaments here are the same as they are everywhere. You must be sensible in this matter, for you see, your world will be visited in very visible ways by races in the Greater Community, and you will be all excited because you may think it is the arrival of enlightened ones who possess great technological advancements that will free your people. Do not be foolish.

Emerging into the Greater Community of Intelligent Life

#88: It is essential that the world undergo its transition into the Greater Community. It is the end of childhood, and with it many things will pass. Do not be concerned with complete destruction, for that is not the way of things. Be concerned instead with supporting the world through this state of transition.

#171: The values of this world will be so affected by your emergence into the Greater Community. There has never been an impact so great upon the consciousness of those who dwell here nor one of such grave consequences. Religion, art, philosophy, culture, the foundations of government, law and ethics—all will be greatly affected.

#126: Be prepared, then, for the visitation of those from the Greater Community. Yet you must be counseled. They are not all of good intention. A young adolescent entering the world of adults will discover the world through exposure. Many ideals and hopes perhaps will be lost encountering the real nature and state of those who are met. Thus it is with the emergence of this world into the Greater Community. Why is this relevant to you? It is relevant because it represents the time in history during which you have entered the world. It is your responsibility to serve this history, fulfilling your rightful place and thus completing your mission here.

True Service in the World

#39: The world will need you, and you must commit yourself to it. It is not a world of casual choices but a world of great demands, and the demands that it will make will show you your own greatness.

#260: You must successfully negotiate this world and use your physical abilities. You see, the Plan calls for the use of all your self-created abilities for a greater purpose. That is how everything is brought back into wholeness.

#291: Human beings are not sent here to achieve ultimate reality. That is not your purpose. Your purpose in being here is to complete being here.

#207: You are not needed where everything is wonderful. You are needed where everything is not wonderful. When this life is over, everything can be wonderful. You went to great pains to come into this world, to be where things are not wonderful. In this world, things are not wonderful. Do you understand? Do not lie about this, or you shall reach the epitome of ignorance. You know things are not wonderful.

Taking The Next Step In Life

#214: Do not attempt to reach the highest point, or you will miss the step that is in front of you, the step that has been awaiting you for so long.

#238: All this self-growth, what can it do for you? You either have Knowledge or you do not.

#95: You think your enlightenment occurs within you alone. All progress is the result of relationship. Your enlightenment is the recognition of complete relationship.

#165: We give personal relationships the greatest priority, for they have the greatest potential for strengthening or weakening those who participate.

#229: For some, the realization of Knowledge is devastating in that it discounts so many of their personal beliefs. Knowledge may not appear to be like God at all. It is sober. It is clear. It does not take positions. It directs actions on its own accord without any reference to outside influences.

#226: If you wish to experience the Teachers of God who surround you, call them Angels or whatever you wish, you must have a place within yourself that is open for this. Therefore, empty your mind of grand thoughts. Then you may enter the present, which is the beginning of the experience of Knowledge.

Mercury Retrograde Is Sick Of Being Blamed For Your Problems

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    Poor Mercury retrograde, it gets blamed for so many of the problems that people feel come up during the cycle. But the truth is, what gets triggered in us is no one's 'fault' but our own.

  • Reflect On:

    Is it better to look outward for why we feel a specific way? Or to perhaps look inwards and explore what may be triggering us within?

This isn’t meant to offend anyone, it’s simply here to spark a meaningful reflection. I have long said this, as we do have astrology content posted on CE a couple times per month–astrology can help you with reflections, but it is not meant to be a crutch or meant to explain away your challenges as something you don’t have to take any responsibility for or action on.

Think about it. You wake up late, you speak poorly to someone, someone speaks poorly to you, you have a bad day, something doesn’t go right… in these moments people will become wonky, triggered or upset. Then, they may blame Mercury retrograde, or maybe the full moon, or maybe something else for why they are feeling this way. And while there can be truth to cosmic cycles having an impact on humanity’s consciousness, this doesn’t explain how we react. It’s also true that as we deal with that which triggers us, these energies don’t affect us in the same way any longer. I covered this in significant detail in my favorite documentary I’ve made called CE3: The Shift, which you can watch on CETV here.

Things happen in our lives, someone says something, we see something, or something occurs in our day, if we have a trigger within us that gets struck by these events, that external event is merely acting as a mirror for you to reflect on that particular trigger you have. We often feel that “someone else’s” or “something else’s” stuff or energy is always imposing on us and making us feel bad and thus there is nothing we can do, except of course just wait for the Mercury retrograde cycle to end or block the person that is triggering us.

But let’s think for a moment, is blaming how we feel on Mercury Retrograde, any other astrological cycle, or someone else really going to get us to a point where we are empowered and have moved past the habits, patterns, beliefs and limiting blocks we have in our lives? Or might we be better off seeing what might be coming up in our lives in a given moment, writing it out, taking some time to reflect on how we truly feel about it and seeing what changes we can make? After all, don’t we sometimes use beliefs about something to explain why we feel a certain way? Is it really true that we never have ‘problems’ outside of these cycles or triggers?

Image of a cute animal, appearing sad, with text over top to help prove my point.

The truth is, social media is rife with posts about “no bad vibes allowed,” “cut out anyone who is not right for you,” or posts blaming astrological cycles for everything we feel. There is this ‘pop spirituality’ culture of seeming spiritual in our lifestyle as a trend, but perhaps not truly living authentically to the teachings or reflections we’re trying to represent. This often keeps people remaining as a victim and in blame mode when it comes to what gets triggered within us. In many ways, we’d rather run away from or block the things that bother us than face them head on and ask, “why does this bother me to begin with?”

A great summation of the pop culture I’m referring to.

Sure, that’s not always a comfortable question, and no I’m not saying simply let an ‘abuser’ continue to abuse without getting out of the way, I’m simply saying there is a difference between an abuser and someone who has a different opinion than us that we can’t seem to handle and triggers our emotional state. What better definition of slavery is there than to be allowing other people to control our emotional state and send us off into rollercoasters because we don’t want to focus on asking why we are so bothered by something?

advertisement - learn more

The truth is, if we block that person or run from that person, we will be met with someone else who will once again trigger that same pattern in us because on a deeper level, don’t we want to be free? Doesn’t it make sense for that trigger to be struck once again so we can deal with it this time?

The point here is in self responsibility and taking action on being different. Perhaps many of the challenges we experience during something like Mercury retrograde are actually always there, we just pay closer attention to them during this time because we’re clearer on who to blame for it.

Accidents happen.
Computers break.
People forget things.
We feel emotional.
And people can be mean or inappropriate.

… regardless of Mercury retrograde or any other cycle.

The only questions we really have to ask ourselves are: what life do we wish to live, and what state of being do we wish to be in? One where we are empowered and working through patterns that hold us back or create unnecessary suffering? Or one where we sit back, point to external cycles as a reason for why we feel the way we do, only to repeat that cycle once again shortly thereafter?

The Takeaway

Personally, things can sometimes come up in my life as a challenge, whether it’s Mercury retrograde or not. Do I have more during Mercury retrograde? I can’t honestly say that’s true. What I can say is that if I’m struggling with something in particular and not making the time to address it, I can come up with all sorts of reasons as to why I feel the way I do and why things happen, most of which all point outwards.

But I know deep down that it’s me that can do the work to free myself, and so I’ve always been one to swiftly do the inner work instead of waiting around and making excuses or blaming outside forces.

If something triggers how you feel during the next Mercury retrograde, or anytime for that matter, set 30 undistracted minutes aside for yourself and write out how you are feeling and why. Push yourself to go deep and ask yourself the tough questions. What is truly bothering me about this? What belief system is being triggered? Did someone really do something wrong to me? Who says it’s wrong? Can I put myself in their shoes and understand their position? Am I repeating a pattern of negative self talk or self-imposed limitations? What stories am I telling myself?

Do this, and the next thing you know the worst thing that may happen during a Mercury retrograde is you may have to restart your computer–if you even notice Mercury retrograde at all.

Full Moon In Taurus: Growth & Perseverance

Published

on

We are having a Full Moon in Taurus on November 12th at 1:34pm Universal Time. It will appear the fullest on the night of the 11th in the Americas and on the night of the 12th elsewhere.

This is the peak of the Lunar cycle that began two weeks prior with a New Moon in Scorpio. The energies of a Full Moon build up as the Moon increases its light and are strongest in the days before and after. However, it will still be a part of the backdrop over the following two weeks.

Mercury is also currently retrograde in Scorpio which you can read more about here. In the day leading up to this Full Moon, Mercury was conjunct the Sun in what is known as the ‘inferior conjunction’ and is still playing out during the Full Moon.

Generally this is an important phase of every Mercury retrograde, however, this one has even more significance because Mercury was exactly aligned with, and visibly in front of, the Sun. This is not the case for every ‘inferior conjunction.’ This is called an ‘Occultation’ and also referred to as a ‘Transit of Mercury’ by astronomers. The last time it occurred was May 2016 and the next time will be in November 2032.

This can be a period of increased insights and the themes of this retrograde may get amplified. However, typical retrograde complications can also be stronger at this time depending on your circumstances or how you are applying your energy. In some cases, this may also be a period of ridding yourself of certain thoughts, ideas, perceptions, old interests, expectations, or other things that are not serving you to make way for new ones to be seeded either at this time or in the coming months.

Full Moon In Taurus Opposite Sun and Mercury in Scorpio

Full Moon’s are a period in which we feel a push-pull between two opposing signs, in this case being the Moon in Taurus and Sun in Scorpio. It can play out as either a conflict, integration, or some sort of dynamic playing out between the energies of both signs.

We can feel this opposition happening individually within us and/or we can also experience it play out around us with some people (or circumstances) expressing the Scorpio side and others expressing the Taurus side. In some cases, Full Moon’s can also reflect/trigger some sort of release or change which may apply more so in this case when considering Mercury’s conjunction with the Sun in Scorpio.

Taurus is an Earth sign ruled by Venus. It is associated with values, worth, the material world, sensuality, money, food/substances, security, beauty, art, and nature. It is physically oriented, practical, and realistic. Taurus is thorough and also likes stability and routine. It is like a rock; slow, grounded, and solid. Negatively, Taurus energy can be too rigid, lazy, habitual, greedy, possessive, stubborn, materialistic, overly self-indulgent, and very slow.

Scorpio is a Water sign traditionally ruled by Mars and associated with Pluto. It is about power, transformation, intensity, sexuality, passion, regeneration, hidden matters, depth, as well as shared or owed resources and money. It is emotionally oriented, intuitive, primal, complex, calculated, mysterious, and is associated with shadows and the unconscious. Negatively Scorpio energy can be vengeful, manipulative, compulsive, obsessive, and fearful. (Learn more here about how Scorpio energy can play out during this period)

Full Moon Trine Pluto, Mercury Retrograde Aspecting Saturn Sextile Neptune

This Full Moon is moving towards a trine with Pluto which can be beneficial in supporting the Mercury Retrograde process in Scorpio. This can be good for getting to the bottom of things, making positive changes, evolutionary growth, empowerment, and resourcefulness.

This Pluto energy combined with the post ‘inferior conjunction’ and waning Moon is supportive of releasing aspects of our lives that are not serving us. The previous Full Moon in Aries was also in a configuration with Pluto so for some people these themes may have began around then and could still be playing out now.

This month, Saturn in Capricorn is in its final sextile to Neptune in Pisces. This aspect began earlier in the year but may be more apparent now as it is concluding with both the Full Moon and Mercury Retrograde triggering it. This can reflect developments, thoughts, or ideas around efforts or ambitions pertaining to our ideals, creativity, inspirations, spirituality, or imagination. This can also be good for commitments associated with selflessness, compassion, healing, or spiritual practices.

Mars Sextile Jupiter, Venus Square Neptune

Mars is in Libra aligned with the benefic star Spica while in a sextile with Jupiter in Sagittarius. Considering that Mars is the traditional ruler of Scorpio where Mercury Retrograde is, this helps to bring a more pleasant, optimistic, and perhaps even fortunate energy to the retrograde experience at this time and in the following weeks.

This is in stark contrast to the previous few weeks in this same Lunar cycle that had more challenging configurations which could have reflected obstacles, limitations, delays, intense feelings, and perhaps even destructiveness.

In comparison, the energy now is more expansive, explorative, and growth oriented. We can feel more confident or perhaps even be presented with opportunities. We may want to take action in a big way or towards things connected to education, media, marketing, travel, beliefs, or ideals.

However, considering the retrograde and depending on what it is, it may not be the best time to make final decisions, or solidifying/initiating something major. However, use your judgement. Not every big decision made during a retrograde gets derailed by problems, sometimes it can just be annoying glitches or challenges can playing out in different ways that are still manageable.

Venus in Sagittarius, the ruler of this Full Moon, is moving towards a square with Neptune which is strongest on November 14th. This can play out as confusion, disappointments, and uncertainties which may be connected to relationships, values, finances, worth, or perhaps something to do with aesthetics, pleasures, or material things. We may not see things for what they really are.

Issues around boundaries, self-sacrifice, escapism, intoxication, or sensitivities may also be a theme. Alternatively, this can be good for creativity as well as social situations revolved around spirituality or art. In some cases it can also be magical and romantic.

Things To Consider During This Period

Pay attention to what comes up now or in the days before and after this Full Moon. Circumstances, developments, conversations, thoughts, feelings, or other things that catch your attention may help to provide important realizations or helpful insights. You may better understand something connected to the past and/or whatever occurs now may also be planting a seed for the future.

What aspects of your life need an adjustment, revisitation, or even transformation? Do you have ideas, thoughts, or behaviours that need to be purged? Have you had experiences, feelings, or exposure to anything connected to personal shadows or trauma? Regardless if you did or not, be open to anything that comes up now which can help you or others towards healing and achieving wholeness.

Is there anything coming up regarding financial matters or values, and if so, what changes do you need to make? What do you need to do to be constructive with your inspirations, ideals, compassion, spirituality, or creativity? Do you feel like you should be incorporating a new spiritual practice or ambition in your life? What actions can you take that are empowered or expansive?

These are just some examples of what could come up during this period; however, there may be other variations of this energy playing out. If you wish to do any sort of intentional release connected to what has come up it is best to do so anytime after the peak of the Full Moon or as it is waning over the following two weeks. The exact moment of of it will be on November 12th at 1:34pm Universal Time. You can click here to see what that is in your time zone.

Mercury Retrograde In Scorpio: Going Deep

Published

on

Mercury begins its latest retrograde process on October 31st, which will last until November 20th/21st. In the weeks (and especially days) leading up to it we start to notice its influence as Mercury slows down and comes to a stop before moving the other way. This is known as the ‘pre-shadow’ period which began on October 11th.

This entire retrograde is occurring during a Lunar cycle that began on October 27th/28th at the New Moon in the same sign. You can read that article here for further insights on this period.

If you have read my previous Mercury retrograde articles, the first two sections of this article are nearly the same and you can skip to the third section if you don’t want to re-read all the general themes associated with these periods. The other sections are more specific to this edition of it.

Mercury retrograde is known for the problematic effects it often has on communication technology, transactions, motor vehicles, anything with moving parts, and commuting in general. Some people even get headaches near the beginning of it. We could experience some challenges, misunderstandings, and errors around our communications, numbers/details, and commerce, as well as changes, cancellations, or delays in our schedules. We may also feel more challenged when we are doing excessive analytical work without using our internal guidance.

Mercury Retrograde can also be a good time to revisit or redo tasks, projects, ideas, or anything else that was initiated in the past. It can give us a different perspective or shift in thinking that can help us to approach these things in ways we wouldn’t have done so before. This may also be a period of reconnecting with old friends, family, lovers, or others you haven’t seen in a while. When we reconnect with people during a retrograde, it can help to facilitate a shift in the relationship. In some cases, issues from the past can come up which may need to be hashed out.

The Deeper Purpose of Mercury Retrograde

Ultimately, Mercury Retrograde is a time for us to recalibrate and adjust specific areas of our lives as well as how we apply our minds towards these issues. It is a period in which we may receive important insights and see things in a new light. In most cases, it can be mildly transformational, but in some cases it can facilitate more major transformations depending on how it corresponds to your personal astrological chart.

During and following the retrograde, certain areas of our lives can go through changes or shifts, or we can experience a re-orientation of some sort which influences how we proceed over the coming months or in some cases, it can have a more long-term significance. In the 2 weeks afterwards, known as the ‘post-shadow’ period, we move forward with some sort of new awareness, adjustment, as well as new ideas and thoughts that have been seeded which will develop and become more defined as time progresses.

The things that you have been doing or circumstances in the two to three weeks leading up to this period could determine how and where this energy plays out. It is also possible that there could have been changes or things that came up at that time which may go through a sorting out process. There could have been unknown variables, either positive or negative, that were either unseen or hadn’t been conceived yet, which may become apparent over the coming weeks.

The sign(s) and element(s) in which Mercury retrograde travels shows the energy we are re-orienting ourselves with. More importantly, if you are familiar with your natal astrology chart, then your house(s) or any planetary placements being affected will show more specifically what areas of life you will be experiencing its energy in. For the astrologically literate, it begins at 27’38 degrees of Scorpio and will retrograde all the way to 11’35 degrees of Scorpio, before turning forward again.

Occurring In Scorpio, Part of a Series in Water Signs

Mercury Retrograde always happens in primarily one element for 1-2 years. This is the third of a series occurring in water signs, with the final one happening in the Fall of 2020. The water element is about emotion, feelings, sensitivity, compassion, intuition, and fluidity. This period is about re-aligning ourselves with these qualities and expressing them in new or revamped ways.

With this retrograde happening in Scorpio, we may experience or process re-orientations, adjustments, developments, circumstances, or reflect on themes connected to shadows, fears, sexuality, mysteries,  obsessions, esoteric practices, use of power, alchemy, conspiracies, taboo subjects, death, suspicions, secrets, investigating, research, depth, regeneration, or the pursuit of mastery. Psychotherapy, psychology, astrology, tarot, and wicca, are examples of practices that may come up at this time.

This can be a great period to do any sort of ‘shadow work’ to help us on our path to achieving wholeness and greater self-awareness. Scorpio is about going deep which can be a key to facilitate emotional healing at this time. Sometimes we encounter crisis to help to push us towards some sort of transformation and this can be one of the ways this retrograde may be experienced.

Scorpio is also associated with debt, taxes, investments, credit, inheritance, loans, mortgages, and anything to do with shared or other people’s resources. In our relationships or other types of partnerships, themes around shared values or shared worth may also come up.

Scorpio can also be about purging and releasing. This can play out when it comes to our physical belongings or obligations. Emotionally or psychologically, it could have to do with overcoming negative patterns or attachments through deep understanding or discovering and healing the root cause. When it comes to our physical body, it could be about cleansing through dietary changes or modalities such as colon hydrotherapy, which can help with emotional healing as well.

Mercury Retrograde Significant Dates

Below are some of the dates and information for some of the major astrological configurations during this retrograde.

*The dates below are based on the Americas. The further East you are located, you may need to consider it as the next day.

Oct 31st Mercury begins its retrograde at 3:42pm Universal Time while separating from a conjunction with Venus. Mercury retrograde themes and complications may come up strongly at this time and in recent days. You may get more indication of some of the things that may be playing out for you over the next month based on how you feel or on what transpires.

Developments, communications, thoughts, or other things that have been occurring recently pertaining to Venus may experience a shift, a change of mind, or a change in direction. It may be connected to love, relationships, friendships, pleasures, values, aesthetics, transactions, money, or other material things in general. However, this can play out in other ways as well.

Nov 2nd-6th The traditional ruler and modern sub-ruler of Scorpio, Mars and Pluto, are in a square with each other, peaking at the first quarter Moon from Nov 4-5. It is also triggered by the Moon on Nov 2.  This can stir up deep, suppressed, dark, or perhaps even chaotic feelings. Intensity, power struggles, jealousy, and conflicts could occur. Perhaps challenges around hidden matters may play out. For some people, it can feel like a crisis. We may assert ourselves in obsessive or compulsive ways. More positively, this can also stimulate strong desires, passion, and sexual energy. It can be good for applying ourselves strategically or pursuing change, transformation, or some sort of elimination.

Nov 7th-10th Mercury Retrograde Sextile Pluto (Nov 7th, 9th, 10th). Saturn Sextile Neptune. The Mars-Pluto square (mentioned above for Nov 2nd-6th) also gets triggered by the Moon in the evening and night of the 9th. This is good for looking beneath the surface or perhaps even getting to the bottom of something. We can go deeper in our understandings, and this can be one of the more insightful periods of this retrograde. This can be a time for realizations or pursuits connected to shadows, money, power, hidden matters, what needs to be changed, or how to facilitate change. Conversations, thoughts, or activities may potentially have an empowering or profound theme. This is about being real as superficiality does not fly well during this time.

Saturn in Capricorn is making its 3rd and final sextile to Neptune in Pisces, which began in late January and occurred again in June. This conclusion of this energy started building up in late October and is present throughout this retrograde; however, it peaks this week. This can assist us in taking a committed, disciplined, structured, or realistic approach when it comes to our ideals, spirituality and spiritual practices, imagination, dreams, inspirations, creativity, or anything that involves selflessness, compassion, or healing. For some people it may be connected to career and ambitions.

Nov 11th-13th Mercury Retrograde Conjunct the Sun (Nov 11). Full Moon In Taurus opposite Sun and Mercury, all harmoniously aspecting Neptune, Saturn and Pluto. Mars sextile Jupiter.

This is the halfway point of Mercury retrograde, known as the ‘inferior conjunction,’ which is when it returns to the Sun. This one is extra potent because Mercury will eclipse a small portion of the Sun which is usually not the case. It hasn’t happened since May 2016 and will not occur again until November 2032.

This can be a period of increased insights, and the themes of this retrograde may get amplified. However, complications can also be stronger at this time depending on your circumstances or how you are applying yourself. This may also be a period of ridding yourself of certain thoughts, ideas, perceptions, old interests, expectations, or other things that are not serving you while the potential for new ones may be seeded.

The Full Moon and the Mars-Jupiter aspect reflects the potential of this period to be constructive, empowering and growth oriented, and can perhaps present opportunities. Our actions may be more explorative, expansive, or idealistic. If conflicts do occur, which is less likely in comparison to other Full Moons, it may have to do with individual needs, values, or resources being at odds with shared or relationship ones. Perhaps the need to be practical in the midst of complexity may also come up.

I will be writing a separate article on this Full Moon, and you can join my mailing list here to ensure that you receive it.

Nov 20th Mercury transitions from Retrograde to Direct. Mercury will slowly begin to move forward from November 20th onward. The areas of our lives that have been affected by this retrograde will start to become more clear and things will fall into place more easily as we progress into the coming days and weeks. As Mercury gradually picks up speed, we can move forward in the areas of life that have been affected. However, usually the first 2-3 days after it ends can still feel like it’s retrograde, as complications may occur due to Mercury’s stationary position. It’s usually best to wait until at least 3 days afterwards before finalizing decisions, agreements, etc.

Later on around January 10th and/or in the days following, there will be even more clarity around certain things that have been seeded during this retrograde. From there, things may develop further with a better perception or other circumstances may indicate that it’s not sufficient, not what was anticipated,  or something needs to change.
