Bang Bang! He is Here

It’s a double bang today ! Greeting you on this third full day of Mercury Retrograde, 2. Season.

Before I dive in … I really like to share with you that since yesterday I am doubting, if I really should write “again” about Mercury, Mercury Retrograde and all my super super Tips…. literally I am now sitting at the coffee shop and taking my early morning infusión …. and well it happened again.

I couldn’t resist the temptation to share some tips as actually each Mercury Retrograde season is different. Of course there are general “timeless” tips, but there is also more.

… so, please grab your favorite beverage and let’s dive into some interesting suggestion and observations .

I will start talking about “love”, as this is beside “money” one of the hottest areas. The other day I checked the hashtag #love in Instagram … wow, it has been used 1.6B.

So, mental Mercury does the backstroke and for some of us probably in the 1st House of Self.

What does this mean ?

Well, this will defenitly show you the value of holding on to peace and integrity in matters of the heart…even when there are hiccups in your romantic world.

Continue to shine your light in a positive way because that’s a surefire way to bring back harmony into your love life right now. Isn’t that good news?

Next tip: When it comes to your passionate, hungry heart now, your assignment is to care for it with “velvet” gloves ( that’s for everybody).

As for some of us retrograde Mercury might happen in your 5th House of Spontaneity… it certainly could inspire you to be more independent in your romantic world. 

What does this also mean?

Well, for example, if you are in a long-term partnership, you no longer feel needy and you’re ready to live and love on your own terms.

You’re already aware that self sufficiency and personal inner work will help you feel more confident in matters of love right now and taking responsibility for your passionate joy is a driving force for you at this time.

On the other handOnce you re- invest ( remember to add the syllabi “re-” to almost every verb ) your time and effort into your love life, you’re unlikely to give up on it without a fight.

You’re especially energized as you re-view your most passionate priorities and re-focus your energies on the direction you want a romantic connection to go in at this time.

GREAT, I absolutely love this!

It’s the perfect moment to re-allocate your re-sources to where they can do the most good. Think twice and save time as you find ways to take action and energize matters of the heart right now.

Voilà !

So, now let’s see other aspects of life and some basics:

Mercury Retrograde is really an optical illusion, but the effect it has on our lives is very real. This is because when Mercury is so close to the Sun its powers are magnified in the areas it rules.

Planet Mercury rules communication, travel and technology, so all of these things are often disrupted during Mercury Retrograde. People get stressed out and have misunderstandings and arguments. And technology and machinery breaks down, including everything from cars to computers.

Life slows down during Mercury Retrograde — it has no choice but to slow down because the universe is blocking our forward momentum. We start reflecting and looking back instead of moving forward, and that’s why Astrology dictates Mercury Retrograde is a bad time to start new projects, go on first dates, get married, travel, sign important papers or legal documents, or make big purchases.

Are you ready for one of my secrets? Pssst, do tell anybody, b u t, I love this season … As it can be your “top-notch useful time” to rest and think and plan for the future.

That’s all for the moment i am heading home for my breakfast.

If you also speak Spanish … last Friday’s and yesterday’s live transmission audios have a lot of exciting insights.

5 Eclipse-Pampering Tips

Summer breezes are feeling nice, b u t the winds of change are blowing, too,… thanks to it being eclipse season, on one hand….

…and on the other hand…. From July 7-31, Mercury will be retrograde, stimulating this desire for all those happy #TB – throwback moments.

The eclipses (this month we have two of them), however, promise magnificent shifts in your home and family dynamic as well as in your professional world, so you can count on July being a month when all of your security buttons will be pushed. Oh yeah, babe!!

What I like very much about this upcoming Eclipse is the surrounding environment. It is such a refreshing and optimistic energy.

Actually, the Solar Eclipse on July 2 in Cancer will be at a supportive angle to Uranus, the planet of sudden happenings. 

This suggests that a “surprise development” or “unconventional fresh start” in your family life. This will bring probably for  you exactly what you need, when you need it most. I think this will be music in the ears of many of us. 

So, under this aspect , I think that you are determined to turn a / the page in your life this month. The change can happen in different areas of your life… here a couple of ideas what might be happening……

e.g.

relationship make-over, that needs urgently to rekindle; Others might invest in real estate; or a the profound desire to change in your professional life, what’s not working anymore. 

Actually, business and money will play an important role during the whole month of July… you’re not going to waste time on anything, that isn’t helping you achieve your ultimate “boss goals”.

Stay with me, as I still have more!

Here are some keywords, that I earlier this morning wrote done for you: transition, moving, career ending, authority, businesslike, ambitious, sex, fun, pleasure, identity shift, NEW YOU, romantic pressure, serious relationship, love burden, letting go, financial risk, creative entrepreneur… oh my God….

I like to say, that you might also consider radical ways to transform your professional approach. Ironically, the more you’re willing to lean out of your “comfort zone”, the more encouraged you’ll feel by your career choices.

As this is not just a New Moon, but an Eclipse the results will be manifesting during the next six month. 

So, a turn of events in your personal and professional life is likely to happen after July 7, when Mercury, the planet of communications,  turns retrograde in romantic Leo. 

It’s possible that you’ll experience a shift in perception about matters of the heart. Those can lead you to take bold, but stumbling action. This isn’t about the right or wrong choice in love, for example. It’s more about having the courage to make mistakes as you strive to love.

I will be preparing more details about the relationship aspect…. As soon as we are heading to the 2. Eclipse in Capricorn. 

For now, come and join me for my 5 Eclipse – Pampering-Tips:

a.) For this Monday and Tuesday I like to invite you to start the day with a breathing exercise  Something as easy as it sounds, but actually it can be hard to practice properly. 

Make yourself comfortable in a sitting or standing position, inhale and exhale 8 times.

Consciously!

With each in- and exhalation feel how the noise around you is vanishing. Cancer is a water sign…. And yes, it can be quite moody. The essential oil of roses is a beautiful mood booster. Put 8 drops of rose essential oil in your bottle of body- or hand cream. The cream will then have a soothing and uplifting effect.

By the way, you can add a couple of drops of rose essential oil to your bath 😉

b.) Now, you are ready to focus on your professional life, business and financial aspects. For Cancer, financial security is indeed a strong subject. You know, its never too late to start your piggy bank. If saving isn’t your strength, well here is the opportunity to look for some orientation. 

c.) As emotions might be driving on the roller-coaster…. it could also be on the menu to have an emotional detox. If this means that you will set an appointment with your shrink or if you will have your very private “crying-moment” .. it doesn’t matter. Just choose what suits you best and make the most of this powerful “healing” energy. 

d.) Cancer is the zodiac sign of home and family… now with the eclipse, you get the invitation to re-connect with who is important in your life. 

The mother figure plays an important role. If you still have your mother or you are a mom, it could be a lovely idea to pamper your family, friend, your partner and kids with a home-cooked meal. 

e.) With the moon in Cancer there is a strong tendency to focus on everything related with your home… Repairs and decor included. 

So, it might not be surprising that under these family – heart –  emotion –  memory vibes your will get your DIY Kit.

But also, you probably feel inspired to dress the table with your grandmothers tablecloth and antique tableware. I think everybody will enjoy this moment… as it doesn’t happen very often. And this could be a very fine moment to share some anecdote with everybody invited. 

Thank you for being here and reading me. Please feel free to share and like my tips. 

Wishing you a very successful week beginning and a joyful Solar Eclipse.

Leave that Stubbornness behind

You’re probably drawn to repair frayed threads in a relationship that’s important to you. I absolutely support the idea

My tip: Mindfully enter into the reconciliation gently as you both might be entrenched in your separate positions.

Acknowledge that your blind spot is making it difficult to see your own #stubbornness .

Chance this #negativeattitude … Speak more about the “positive aspects” of the relationship than dwelling on the injustices.

Once you settle into a comfortable rapport, you can unpack and resolve your differences.

Keep in mind, softening your heart inspires others to do the same.

This could be a page turning Moment under today’s numerology : nine

Just for your information we will have the next Mercury Retrograde season from July 7 to 31… time to do some back up of your devices.

Wishing you a very peace-and joyful Thursday

Thanks for being here and reading me . XO Kikis


Thursday Espresso

Coming from the Full Moon in Sagittarius and heading to the Summer Solstice, this Friday June 21, the first day of the Cancer season … You highly value now your independence and self-sufficiency.

Nevertheless no person is an island!

Under today’s numerology “two” here my tip: You are in a much better position, if you join the team or build the team …each of us is in a give-and-take dynamic with the cosmos + your community — so simple …to love and to be loved, is to feel the Sun from both sides.

Thanks for being here and reading me . XO Kikis

Luna Monday

Hello and good morning on this Full Moon Monday… over here it just happening at 3:30 a.m A bright moon in the fire sign Sagittarius, under today’s numerology “eight”

There is also a video version available: https://www.instagram.com/tv/By0IJCVHdPg/?igshid=13txn9npkosb5

Join me with your coffee for more exciting news… you know, this is all happening just a couple of days before the Solstice…, also it is a pushy week (oh yeah!) …very probably with power struggles for all the Zodiac Signs ( mark Tuesday and Wednesday in your calendars ); be mindful as you’re carving your path and profile.

So, now under this full moon… your heart is yearning for serious adventure? But it’s hard to decide, whether you want to go far and wide or stick closer to home… ?

I would say, if time and finances fit together, then get your suitcase ready for an interesting trip. In case that is totally out of options… and

you want to keep things simple, a jaunt to a restaurant with international cuisine or someplace that emphasizes a foreign culture can temporarily satisfy your cravings.

On the other hand, mingle multiculturally and don’t forget to check out the cultural activities like theatre, movies, expositions …

Then, by the end of the week we have the Solstice in the water sign Cancer. This Friday, June 21st, it’s the longest and lightest day of this year. There is so much inspiration and creativity in the air. It’s a very inviting moment to re-connect with who is important in your life. Leave the grinch aside and do the first step an enjoy.

My final tip for today…Feel things out with your intuition and then roll with the adventure. Your passion is your strength.

Wishing you all a very joyful week beginning.

Thanks for being here and reading me.

The Angry soon-to-be Ex-Wife {Guest Post}

This is the premiere of “Guest Posts” here at my site .

A very dear client asked me, if she could share her story (real story!) She is a beginner writer. A warm welcome here in my blog.

It’s a pleasure to have you here, Valentina … let’s read your 1. Post:

Today I decided to be Brave

The Angry Soon-to-Be Ex-Wife

By Valentina Wang

It’s late. I am sitting in front of my laptop. Just opened a blank page of Word.

I have no clue, how long I am sitting here already, staring on the screen. It’s now dark outside. If time is measurable in glasses of red wine, then I would say, I am sitting here and starring on thatscreen for the length of two glasses of Merlot. 

The other thing I know right now is, that I am actually not quite sure, what I am going to do next.

My office cellphone just rang and a very dear client called me crying, that she needs urgently a place to stay…. If I am still offering in my office house… Airbnb?

What an irony! 

Probably, this would have been a good moment to tell her, that she is not alone and that I am also having a very bad moment. But no, I couldn’t do that, somehow, I am still too pride to reveal so easily my pain. 

So, I also need a place to stay. I need to get out of this house as soon as possible. Now, that I decided to be brave. 

By now, I catch myself talking loud, alone here in my “west wing” of my still-husband’s house. And I am writing… All you are reading at this very moment. 

Well, actually I could move to my office, I have in a small house. 

But, that something I don’t feel ready to decide on…. Now… I will thing about my next living space tomorrow. 

For now, I only feel this deep desire, in me, to write all my pain, my disillusion, my anger off my chest. All these emotions that Ihave accumulated during the last 11 years…. with a strong crescendo (as my piano teacher would say) in the last two and a half years.  

The ideas are swirling in my head and if you ask me, what has happened or how I feel right now. 

A lot has happened in the last 11. Years.

I am angry. 

I am pissed off, at least I think that’s how some people would call my current feeling. 

I feel hurt. 

I feel not appreciated and certainly not desired and loved since a long time, 11 years. The last point, is something, I am actually not yet feeling ready to talk about.

So, let’s recap on how I got here, now, in front of my laptop screen with this blank page of Word:

Earlier this morning I woke up and I had that epiphany, I needed to take a decision concerning my marriage or better said, what’s left of my marriage. Does this sound familiar to any of you?

In different occasions and also today, during our phone-call, my still-husband had been very clear about his feelings. 

His last birthday plays a very important role in all this and although, we still have had “good” times since that event, (we went for a vacation on my birthday, but then he ignored me on Mothers Day) he says, that this was his deciding moment… when he knew, that this relationship was over for him. 

So, did he take this decision 12 months ago? 

I remember perfectly well his birthday. During weeks we had itchy moments, quarrels about “why” he is ignoring me as his partner ( At that time that red alarm light did not reach me!), why we don’t have sex, why I never know what he does in the evening during his business trips… the list is long. 

But, come on, at that point of my life, I still was so naïve in thinking that these were peanuts and somehow, we would be able to manage these ups and down in our long-distance -relationship. 

I call it a long-distance-relationship, as we sometimes only see on weekends or in the worst case 3 or 5 days during a month. Therefor communication, in all forms, has always been the priority number one on my bucket-list…. Yeah, but not on the one of my still-husband. 

Yes, I have to admit, that I already had some very, very ugly and painful moments experienced with him. We are a couple and of course he also lived painful moments with me, too. Of course, he has his anger and disillusions. 

But we can talk about that. Not talking only makes things worse and definitely is not a good base for solution-finding.  

Finally, what couple doesn’t have strong fights and a pile or several of broken plates?

So, things got worse, after I was ignored on Mother’s Day. It hurt so much!  I spent a long time crying in my car, my office and that’s when I started to analyze the last 12 months. What did I miss? What signs didn’t I pay attention to?

I think the astrological weather gave me a helping hand, as all the pieces of the puzzle started to fit. I got one insight after the other.  

There was this red alarm light I didn’t see, when my still-husband presented his decision, he took about our relationship almost 12 months ago. 

I have been so sad, so scared… feeling so helpless in the last four and a half months. 

That’s what I remember, here and now, sitting and writing. 

So, today is the big day… I called my husband and there it was again. 

The purpose of my call was to sum up and somehow “verify”, what I finally understood …and to be sure that we are on the same line…. As I had a big news for him…, but before I could tell him that

He was preaching a g a i n: ”I have taken a decision, I am living my life, I am travelling I am bying this and that, , I am going to the movies, I am … I am… I am… I am done with this relationship…”.

Yep! Among so many “I am “ there was definitely no space for me. 

Yes Sir, without any doubt! 

Also, he made it very clear, that he was in “no hurry” to get the divorce, as he still wasn’t dating anybody ( what do you think? I love to read your comments) ….

Well, that sounds generous!

But I had big news for him. 

When he was taking a deep breath, I took my chance and just said: “I want immediately the divorce”!

So, that’s “how” I got here, now, in front of my laptop screen with this already 1130 written words in my new word file and after 3 glasses of Merlot. 

How do I feel now?

I feel lighter.

Nevertheless, the pain is immense. 

There is a big stone in my chest. 

I feel exhausted and tired. 

I don’t know what I am going to do tomorrow, next week. How am I going to live.

There is so much I like to share with you. 

For now, I will try to sleep. 

Oh, and by the way, I am Valentina Wang. 

Thank you.

 


Cafe de Olla

Are you ready to ride on the unpredictable winds? It’s already the second day of June,

with the Sun and Moon traveling in Gemini plus today’s numerology #two

So much to say and the day has only 24hr. … well, … many of us might be thinking this under the current sky.

Communication is written in capital letters.

Especially, it’s all about “how” you communicate… use your words <wisely >

Here my tip: today before you leave the house, do a little double check… haven’t you forgotten something?

I know what it is, this extra dose of diplomacy. Don’t get me wrong, there is this touch of “persuasive power“ and charm, thanks to the positive influence of Pluto/Venus.

So, enjoy the talk, the coffee … Have you ever tried Café de Olla? I am having one right now here in San Miguel de Allende. So delicious! Enjoy the conversation with some delicious coffee…

But, once you have delivered you message .. let people digest it … you don’t need to be twisting arms.

Wishing you a very communicative and joyful Sunday.

Thanks for being here with me and reading me.

Monday Morning Sparkle

Hello and good morning to this fresh week . It’s Monday, May 27th, 2019 … starting the week with numerology “eight” . A strong bold number, which characteristics give us an incredible support , b u t … there is some smoke machine working this week… fogging the whole panorama.

Don’t get me wrong, as there might be a beautiful, happy energy surrounding you . Nevertheless, even if good vibes are flowing, make zero assumptions about where anyone stands.

There is more … and I invite you to grab you coffee and join me for some interesting details:

For today … Go with the flow! You could also attract a powerful alliance, either for business or romance. Does someone’s energy merge naturally with yours?

How about exploring the possibility of to join forces, ideas…

…by midweek…

On Wednesday and Thursday the air might be quiet sticky. Some casual conversation can easily open up the tremendous Pandora-Box. Do you really want this?

OMG … here my first tip … listen carefully before you react. Be prepared to guide the conversation in a proactive direction.

On Thursday, Mercury gets into its second dust-up, this time opposing retrograde Jupiter in Sagittarius and your candid ninth house. These two planets are the “big mouths” of the zodiac, but when sitting across from each other, they can muddle your message.

Here my tip: Don’t be too hasty in your actions, reactions and desicion … and also do your prep-work.

The T-square formation of Mercury, Neptune and Jupiter can rile up debate. People w i l l question you and your data, presentation, info-sheet …!

Nevertheless, this is not <!> the moment to take it personally.

Shift your attitude and understand that it’s <probably > your job to sell others on your vision.

There is no shortcut. If you don’t know how to answer something, simply say, “Let me get back to you on that.” ( but don’t forget to get really back to this)

All in all, it very important not to burn the bridges in your personal and professional relationships.

Thanks for being here and reading me. Wishing you all a very productive Monday

XO Kikis


The result orientated Groove

It’s already midweek! The Sun and Mercury are dancing Zumba in Gemini’s until June 4th, 2019 . This is definetly bringing some fresh and exiciting breeze under today’s numerology #three .

The air is filled with plenty of inspiration and creativity. But today’s number three has also another purpose. Everybody’s communications and creative expression is also under the spotlight .

As much as you like to be the driver of your most ambitious projects… the one you’re focused on today may affect your partner, colleagues, family …, so they may feel inclined to offer assistance.

Here my #numerologykikis tip:

You do need the help, even if you’re too proud to admit it. Imagine how much more satisfying reaching your destination will be, if you and the partner/team collaborate on it together.

This kind of teamwork can lead to a deeper and more satisfying relationship bond right now.

So, why waste it?

On the other hand … A significant shift in your attitude can turn what started as a chore into a pleasure. Under today’s numerology #three …You feel like you’re walking on sunshine when your motto is… « Nothing succeeds like success »

Wishing you all a very productive and joyful Wednesday!

Thanks for reading me.
