Preparing For Mercury Retrograde

Whoa, the last few days have gone by in a virtual whirlwind of activity. My youngest son took a tumble during his scrimmage Friday and got a mild concussion. Earlier that day my 13-year-old grandson was punched in the face at school and retaliated, self defense fighting resulting in a three day suspension from middle school, and my 16-year-old grandson is doing online school this year only and so all three grands have been spending a great deal of time at my house.

And I managed to do a couple massages and make it through Hatha yoga class Thursday night. I was quite a bit more wobbly than last time. But I am much better, still waiting to see the specialist (my primary care clinic gave me a referral to the wrong doctor, and apparently it takes 5-10 days to make corrections like that and fax them over).

I am also going to be getting an epidural steroid injection for my low back the end of September. So please think positive thoughts, say prayers, good energy my way. I know yoga, meditation, good food, positive thoughts and being around kids, cats and plants plus a few very sweet friends is helping me to become stronger all the time. Maybe my doctor will only want to start me on some hormones.

Time to start the Rosemary Gladstar remedies and maybe that will handle things. Sorry if that’s TMI, but all women will reach this age or have already gone through it, and it’s just another transformation we go through as women, as human beings.

The astrological concurrence is usually the Chiron Returns period, when we are transmuted. This is a time of finally feeling comfortable in our own skin. Of pulling the spiritual into the physical, and grounding that. Embracing the wisdom of the elders as the doorway to further growing and loving when graciously presented rather than resisted and feared. There is nothing to fear about growing older we are simply thankful for this opportunity to be alive each given day.

The three most important major astrological transitions begin at about 28-32, when Saturn Returns to the position it was in at the time of your birth, you come into your own. Realizing who you are is a profound part of this learning and growing experience.

Then at 38-43 there is the Uranus Opposition Transition. My Uranus is in Leo and the only way I can ever tell the story of my own UOT is through some outlandish science fiction, lol. Anyway, Uranus being the planet of transformation and electricity. I was attuned to many levels of Reiki, unofficially, in the physical and long distance for several months. I divorced during my UOT. Many people think they are having heart attacks as their kundalini rises from the base of the spine on up, opening each chakra as it rises. This is commonly known at the midlife crisis or midlife clearing. People often go through a second adolescence at that point for awhile. I certainly did. My kids helped pull me out of that.

Barbara Hand Clow writes extensively about this topic.

Anyways, friends, the stars are lining up and Mercury is going retrograde again Tuesday. It’s very important to get plenty of sleep, drink lots of water, be kind to one another, remember to breathe. Be mindful and give extra time for travel.

Always a good time for journaling, for delving within our inner psyches. But remember to not over think! Balance giving to others with caring for self. Find time for a hot bath. A massage. A walk in the park. Smelling the roses.

Have a nice week, my friends. The Moon will be in Leo while Mercury goes retro,.so at least that. Leo is so playful and heart centered.

Om Shanti. Om Shanti. Om Shanti.
