Mercury Retrograde In Gemini: Adjusting The Way We Think & Communicate

Published

on

The planet Mercury started its retrograde phase on May 18th/19th which will last until June 11th/12th. This is an astrological phenomena that occurs roughly every four months for over a three week period. From an Earth based perspective, it looks as if Mercury is going backwards, but this is not the case. It only appears that way due to the relationship between both Earth’s and Mercury’s orbit around the Sun. Accordingly, astrologers observe it differently than when it appears to be forward moving.

How Does Mercury Affect Us?

Mercury rules over communication as well as communication technology. It also rules the intellect, transportation, learning, news, and information. It rules over the the analytical mind as well as how we mind the details of life which require thinking. Materially, it rules over anything with moving parts such as cars and appliances, as well as phones, computers, and devices. When Mercury goes retrograde there are noticeable miscalculations, misunderstandings, mistakes, disruptions, confusion, breakdowns, and sometimes chaos in these areas.

glyph_planets_mercuryIt is commonly known that this is not a good time to make an important decision and not a good time to sign any contracts. If you do absolutely need to sign a contract or feel intuitively to do so, then understand that it might get revised later or there might be something about it that you are not seeing clearly yet. At least make sure to check the fine print and get clear with everything as much as you can. It is also not a good time for making important purchases, especially for electronic items or vehicles. I would advise keeping all receipts acquired during this period and even in the 2.5 weeks leading up to it. Starting something new is not recommended unless it is something that was first thought of in the past or first attempted then, and is now being worked or reworked somehow.

This is generally a good time to reconnect with old friends, finish up old projects, revisit anything work related, or finish a book you started reading a while back.  Other types of revisitation are also advisable.

Mercury Retrograde & Personal Growth: Re-think, Re-do, Re-orientate, Re-calibrate, Re-connect

Mercury Retrograde is about making adjustments in our lives. These adjustments can be instigated by some of the themes mentioned above. The adjustments that are being made (or need to be made) are different during every Mercury retrograde that occurs. This depends on what sign Mercury is in, combined with the connections with other planets. The positioning of Mercury on the zodiac also influences each of the 12 Sun signs differently. For example, all Leos (or any other sign) will experience its effects in similar areas of their lives. However, the most accurate and specific way to see how Mercury retrograde (or any other planetary influence) is affecting an individual is to see how it correlates with a person’s natal birth chart. This will show you how the effects are unique to that person due to their specific birth date, time, and location. This is something that can be done by a professional astrologer.

gemini-glyph-tweaked-againMercury Is Retrograde In Its Own Sign

Mercury is the ruler of Gemini, therefore going retrograde in its own sign will amplify its regular effects.  Like Mercury, Gemini is associated with communication, information, and the mind. In medical astrology they both rule the brain, the hands, and the nervous system. Gemini is also associated with friends (especially from childhood), neighbours and neighbourhood, siblings, and in some cases, cousins. Gemini is about your social connections in your immediate environment and from childhood, and with Mercury retrograde in this sign, you may find yourself reconnecting with certain people in those categories. Short distance travel is also associated with both Mercury and Gemini, and many people can experience complications with their vehicles, bikes, and transit. In more extreme cases, potential problems with walking are a risk. However, this can also be a time where we need to make adjustments in how we make our commutes, and any related problems that occur during this period can help reveal what changes need to be made.

Another theme is the re-calibration of how we use our mind and how we communicate. If there is a certain way of thinking that you have, and if it needs to be adjusted, this can be a time to reflect on that. You may feel blocked or there could be other complications that push you to change. The same goes with how you communicate or write. The way we use language and grammar may need to adjusted. Gemini is associated with the twins, and a potential shadow that can manifest with Mercury is double-speak – when we say one thing to one person and another thing to someone else. If we have been gossipy or dishonest in our communications, then this can be a time where issues flare up.

Mercury Interacting With Other Planets

For each interpretation below, I put 2-3 dates. The early dates are more for those in the Western part of the world, like the Americas, Western Europe, and Africa. The later dates are for those in Eastern parts of the world, such as Eastern Europe, Asia, and Oceania.

Mercury Conjunct Mars in Gemini (May 26th – 27th) – The first planet in the path of Mercury is Mars. Mars is the planet of assertion and will, but having Gemini’s ruler Mercury going backwards on Mars until June 11th can result in different potential effects. It could thwart our will, or it can anger us by bringing up things from the past, perhaps related to poor communication or gossip. Some people who have had some sort of action planned out for this period will need to stop to make adjustments after finding out previously unknown information. When Mercury and Mars join on May 26th/27th, these effects will be strongest, and it could make some people nervous. Verbal arguments are also a possibility in many cases during this period, and what is happening is that Mercury is bringing something to your attention that needs to be adjusted.

Mercury Square Neptune in Pisces (May 28th – 29th) – This can be a mentally challenging time and if you are able, it is best to try to avoid any heavy mental work. Problems with communication getting lost (like emails) or details getting overlooked are heightened during this period. For some people, this can also be a period where they find out that they have been deceived in the past. Or someone else’s words could possibly be deceiving on this day, so be aware. This period can also bring into awareness where you have been delusional in your thinking and/or when making decisions. This is a better time to go inward, meditate, relax, or do anything that gives your mind a break and helps you to reflect and be more open to your intuition.

Mercury Conjunct Sun in Gemini (May 29th – 31st) – Whenever Mercury retrograde joins the Sun, the effects are at their peak. Neptune is also still involved here, and therefore the themes mentioned in the above interpretation could still play out. This period is powerful for bringing anything to your awareness. This could be the most insightful time of this Mercury retrograde. It can help you look at things from a different perspective. It is best to let go on this day. You may experience issues with miscommunications, miscalculations, and lack of attention to detail. Don’t push too hard and try to be as reflective as possible.

Mercury Trine North Node in Libra (May 30th – June 1st)  – Communications, new awareness, or adjustments made on this day can be positive for helping to achieve a new sense of harmony and balance. This period is strong for connecting with relationships of the past and making adjustments within those relationships to achieve harmony. Communications could come up to help us to be more considerate if we have been inconsiderate.

Mercury Sextile Venus in Leo (June 9th – 10th ) – This is a good time to do something fun or to finish a creative activity that you started in the past. It could also be related to performing and writing. If you are in a relationship, this day can facilitate helpful and insightful communications that could benefit your love life. For some people it could be related to individual needs and commitments, as the Moon in Aries, with Saturn in aspect, gets in on the action for a brief period.

Mercury Goes Stationary Direct (June 11th – 12th) – This is when Mercury appears to stop and slowly starts to progress forward. The issues that have come up in your life over last 3 weeks will start to resolve themselves, and over the next 2.5 weeks things will become more clear and a new perspective will help you move forward.

Things To Do For This Period

This retrograde period is from May 18th until June 11th/12th. Firstly, it is best to be as reflective as possible and to avoid making any important decisions. During this period, the Universe is showing you something which can influence your decisions and/or help you to make adjustments in your life. If you have any books or podcasts (or other source of information) that you have started and haven’t finished, this is a great time to see those through to completion. This is especially the case if these projects will help you develop Gemini traits such as communication skills or the use of the mind and brain.

Look for ways to help improve and sharpen your mental acuity. There are different modalities to help with this. Brain exercises are useful, and for some people, meditation can also be of great value during this period. Also, the last New Moon was in Taurus (which is associated with food and supplements), so you may want to consider consuming foods and supplements that boost brain power such as AFA Blue-Green Algae or Brain On. Most importantly, remember to be adaptable during this period and minimize your expectations.

The Wake Up Call We All Need To Hear About Politics

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    We exist in a time, especially with the US in the midst of another election cycle, where we must face the reality that personal transformation and identifying the REAL workings of our world is crucial to creating change.

  • Reflect On:

    Why are we always baited into left/right politics? Why is so much media focused on taking left or right angles? Are we getting to any real truth by not addressing the real, proven workings of our world? Are we living in a delusion?

Back in 2009 I created a documentary that kickstarted Collective Evolution’s popularity. It focused on taking a big picture, conscious, look at the state of our world and what needs to change. This film was made on a handy cam with a budget of about $800, haha. But it was the beginning of something powerful, and played its role.

One of the key insights I wrote into this film was the idea that we must begin looking at our world and our political system from the standpoint of consciousness – how our inner belief systems and programming create the world we see in our world.

The current challenge we face is that people are not seeing the truth of our world and thus are living in a delusion, or illusion. They are being baited into identifying as either a democrat or a republican. Baited into various heated issues that also don’t address the truth of what’s happening in our world. These societal manipulations are distracting people from something that can actually create change, and this is why the mainstream media and culture in the US is so developed to keep people lost.

Because of this, we must begin to take a new approach to understanding our world that looks not just at policies and people who create ideas that governments push through, but also, and most importantly, the elephant in the room that few political candidates ever discuss in any meaningful way – the deep state.

A combination of personal transformation and viewing the truth of our world couragiously, is the way forward. I’m not stating this in a way where I’m suggesting there is only one pathway forward, I’m stating this as 2 key ingredients that must be brought together to properly understand our world and what we must do to evolve it. This is precisely why for 10 years the formula I built for Collective Evolution’s media has been focused on combining personal transformation with truth.

Currently, many are too afraid to have these honest and grounded conversations as they don’t want the label of being airy-fairy or a conspiracy theorist. Both of these labels, of course, are convenient forms of ridicule that seek not to answer ideas brought forth, but to brush them aside as something people don’t wish to look at and face.

In the video below, I address a detail that is so crucial to our understanding of our world. As the US moves yet again into another cycle of elections, this message is more important now than ever.

Are Human Beings “Extraterrestrial?” Did We Come From Somewhere Else?

Published

on

Photo by Drew Tilk on Unsplash

Are we alone in the universe? The obvious answer coming from mainstream science these days is a big no. It’s quite clear that we’re not alone, that’s the general scientific consensus. The next questions to ask are: Has advanced ‘super intelligent’ extraterrestrial life visited our planet in the past, and is extraterrestrial life visiting our planet now?

For years, if you believed that intelligent extraterrestrial life has visited our planet, you would have been put in the ‘conspiracy theorist’ category. But today, that’s not the case. Perhaps this ridicule was as a result of something specific–the very first director of the Central Intelligence Agency said that there was an “official campaign of ridicule and secrecy” when it came to the topic of UFOs.

UFOs are no longer taboo, and their existence has been disclosed thanks to millions of pages of unclassified government documents from around the world. They’ve been photographed and recorded on video as well as tracked on radars. They’ve performed maneuvers and were clocked travelling at speeds no known aircraft on Earth can travel. Furthermore, there are many witnesses, from astronauts to civilians to high ranking military personnel to academicians and more, who have been creating awareness and putting all of the evidence out there for us to see.

We are in a process of ‘disclosure,’ a slow one, and it’s a subject that leaves no aspect of humanity untouched. The implications are huge, from spiritual to technological to scientific and beyond. It really opens up pandora’s box.

The question of whether or not we are alone in the universe is one of the biggest questions in the history of mankind, along with how we got here and who created us. Perhaps they are all interrelated? We have yet to answer these questions, yet God as well as the theory of evolution seem to be heavily pushed on the population in an almost unquestionable manner, leaving humanity in a divide, constantly disagreeing with each other without ever being able to find common ground.

Did we come from outer space? I don’t watch Ancient Aliens, but I am sure many people are aware of the biblical, ancient, and indigenous lore of human beings coming from outer space. There are no shortage of stories regarding this, but it’s a perspective that we never really hear about and one that is never addressed within mainstream academia. That being said, anybody who truly has a passion for this subject is going to go down that rabbit hole.

Dr. Edgar Mitchell, the 6th man to walk on the moon, said he “happens to be privileged enough to be in on the fact that we are not alone on this planet” and that we have “been visited many times.” He is one of many astronauts to express this. It was while coming across his comments that I stumbled upon the comments of Al Warden, who said in a TV interview:

We are the aliens, but we just think they’re somebody else, but we’re the ones who came from somewhere else. Because somebody else had to survive, and they got in a little space craft and they came here and they landed and they started civilization here, that’s what I believe. And if you don’t believe me, go get books on the ancient Sumerians and see what they had to say about it, they’ll tell you right up front.

He seemed pretty confident in his knowing.

He’s not the only one to assert such things, Francis Crick and Maurice Wilkins were jointly awarded the 1962 Nobel Prize for Physiology for Medicine “for their discoveries concerning the molecular structure of nucleic acids and its significance for information transfer in living material,” and they also shared this belief.

In his book published in 1982, Life Itself, Crick argues that there is no possible way that the DNA molecule could have gotten its start here on Earth and that it had to have come here from somewhere else. Within the mainstream scientific community, the generally accepted theory is that we are the result of a bunch of molecules accidentally bumping into each other, creating life. However, according to Francis, we are the result of what is now known as Directed Panspermia. Crick and a British chemist, Leslie Orgel, published their paper on it in July of 1973.

Their theory explains that, “organisms were deliberately transmitted to earth by intelligent beings on another planet. We conclude that it is possible that life reached the earth in this way, but that the scientific evidence is inadequate at the present time to say anything about the probability. We draw attention to the kinds of evidence that might throw additional light on the topic.”  (source)

As far as Crick’s thoughts on the theory that we are the result of accidentally  bumping into each other, he thinks this was as likely as the assembly of a jumbo jet hit by a hurricane in a junk yard. In other words, he thought the theory held little to no credibility.

The theory of evolution is taught today as a fact, when in reality it has little backing. In fact, 500 scientists in several fields came together a few years to create “A Scientific Dissent From Darwinism.” There are countless studies being published calling into question the theory of evolution. Not long ago, we wrote about a new genetic study that did exactly that, you can read more about that here.

recent paper published by 33 scientists in the Progress in Biophysics and Molecular Biology journal suggests that the flourishing of life during the Cambrian era (Cambrian Explosion) originated from the stars. This is another example of how the theory of evolution would be thrown out of whack.

“With the rapidly increasing number of exoplanets that have been discovered in the habitable zones of long-lived red dwarf stars (Gillon et al., 2016), the prospects for genetic exchanges between life-bearing Earth-like planets cannot be ignored. ” (The study)

There is a great little blurb from Cosmos Magazine, one of the few outlets that talked about the study:

With 33 authors from a wide range of reputable universities and research institutes, the paper makes a seemingly incredible claim. A claim that if true, would have the most profound consequences for our understanding of the universe. Life, the paper argues, did not originate on the planet Earth.

The response?

Near silence.

The reasons for this are as fascinating as the evidence and claims advanced by the paper itself. Entitled Cause of the Cambrian Explosion – Terrestrial or Cosmic?, the publication revives a controversial idea concerning the origin of life, an idea stretching back to Ancient Greece, known as panspermia.

What about giants? There are several examples of evidence that exist in support of the idea that giants once roamed the Earth. For example, stored in the vaults of the medical school at WITS University, Johannesburg, there is part of an upper leg bone with a hip-joint that would have stood approximately 12 feet tall. It’s been there since the early 1960’s and was found by miners in Northern Namibia. It is one of the most precious and rare specimens available today that clearly indicates the existence of giants in Southern Africa more than 40,000 years ago.

That’s another story in and of itself, and you can read more about that here.

Further Discussion/Takeaway

The point of this article is to show you that there is a lot more to the human story than what we’ve been told, yet we are still taught that there are only two acceptable possibilities. The truth is that we don’t know, and the evidence points to the fact that what we are being taught and what we are learning from a young age doesn’t hold nearly as much credibility compared to theories that don’t even get mentioned within the mainstream.

Perhaps there is much more to human history and the story of our origins than what we’re told? Perhaps intellectual authorities have been involved in concealing this information from humanity because it would completely change the collective worldview and the controlling mechanisms used to enslave humanity?

Study Shows That Horses Understand Our Emotions & Remember Us Deeply

Published

on

In Brief

  • The Facts:

    In a recent study, researchers at the universities of Sussex and Portsmouth have discovered that horses can recognize and recall human expression.

  • Reflect On:

    We are all interconnected and it is beautiful to see more studies coming up that clearly showcase just how aware and in tune animals can be and are.

The more in tune with myself I strive to become, the more drawn I am to explore how connected we all are – not solely with one another, but with everything. This, like many other deeper concepts surrounding life, begs to answer the ever-present question of ‘are there other emotionally intelligent beings out there?’

One could argue that their dogs or other galactic beings (if real) could be emotionally intelligent, but as we look at all of the research, it is clear that most living organisms actually display a very obvious intelligence. From lobsters to plants, they have all been known to display some form of intelligence. This is precisely what was revealed when a recent study explored horses and their interaction with humans.

Let’s take a step back real quick. If you have ever owned or spent a lot of time riding with one particular horse, chances are good that you’ve felt some sort of special connection with them — and wondered if horses even like humans. Maybe you’ve felt like they were actually your friend, or a small part of your family, and wanted to know if the feeling was reciprocal. Research is now confirming that that connection isn’t all in your head — and anyone who has ever had a pet before, horse or not, definitely won’t be surprised at some of these recent findings.

In a recent study, researchers at the universities of Sussex and Portsmouth showed domestic horses photographs of humans with either a happy or angry expression on their faces. Then, later on, the horses were introduced to the same people they saw in the photographs, now with neutral expressions. This new study shows that horses can actually understand and remember human emotions, which is something that makes them seem even more magical than they already did.

“Researchers watched the eye movements of horses as they met the photograph subjects in real life. The horses perceived those who had been photographed with an angry face as more threatening.” – UPI

UPI reports that previous research showed horses tend to focus on negative or threatening objects and events with their left eye, as the right hemisphere of their brain is tasked with assessing risk. In the new experiment, researchers found horses stared at subjects who had been photographed with an angry expression using their left eye.

“What we’ve found is that horses can not only read human facial expressions but they can also remember a person’s previous emotional state when they meet them later that day — and, crucially, that they adapt their behavior accordingly,” Karen McComb, a professor at the University of Sussex, said in a news release. “Essentially horses have a memory for emotion.”

Scientists have previously shown horses can recognize expressions, but the latest findings, published this week in the journal Current Biology, are the first to show the mammals can recall an expression linked with an individual’s face.

“We know that horses are socially intelligent animals, but this is the first time any mammal has been shown to have this particular ability,” Portsmouth researcher Leanne Proops said. “What’s very striking is that this happened after just briefly viewing a photograph of the person with a particular emotional expression — they did not have a strongly positive or negative experience with the person.”

This is a beautiful discovery in and of itself as stated above, outside of ourselves there had not been any recording of other mammals showing this ability.

The Takeaway

With more of us beginning to turn inward for growth, it is beautiful to see that more and more research is coming to the forefront revealing our fellow animal kingdom as being connected and in tune with us as much as their surroundings. At times when everything else seems to be chaotic, remember to be still. The real magic within us and our connectedness to everything is what oneness consciousness is all about. You are not alone in this world, let alone in the universe. It is in our awareness that we allow bonds that were seen as less than to blossom — it is in our remembrance of Self that we re-member as One with all.
