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.
