Free Candle Spells | Full Moon in Sagittarius – Mercury’s in Retrograde to Boot!

Free Candle Spells | Full Moon in Sagittarius – Mercury’s in Retrograde to Boot! The Full Moon occurs on June 2, 2015 at 11:19 am E.S.T in the astrological sign of Sagittarius, the Archer. Mercury is in Retrograde at this time, affecting all of us but those especially under the signs of Gemini and Virgo. Despite the tendency of a Mercury Retrograde to wreck havoc with all types of communication form the spoken word to technology, there is a tendency to be curt in response and have a sharp tone to the voice during this time, as Mars joins in the planetary mix to give words “a little heat”. The Full Moon is traditionally held as a time when you use the energies of the waning Moon to reduce, reverse, diffuse, and reject the very issues you are facing. Burning “Reversible” or “Block Buster” candles are effective at this time. The energy of the Full Moon in Sagittarius is a “Mutable” Fire sign, meaning that the energy is creative and aggressive, and fluctuates between optimistic and pessimistic viewpoints. During this time, there may be an over-abundance of e-mails and phone calls, so it is crucial that you ‘say what you mean and mean what you say’ Other planetary aspects include Pluto being in quincunx with Mars, making passions run high. there may be issues with gender equality in the news as well as women’s rights issues. Concerns on the home front take the lead as home and hearth is the thrust of the issue right now. Keep calm when speaking with others when your security is threatened. Burning blue candles anointed with “Peaceful Home” and “House Blessing” oils is suggested at this time. The next New Moon occurs on June 16,...

Free Candle Spells | Mercury Retrograde Coming This Week!

Free Candle Spells | Mercury Retrograde Coming This Week!   The second of three Mercury Retrograde times will occur May 18th and last until June 11, 2015. As in past articles, Mercury, the plant of Communication that rules the astrological signs of Gemini and Virgo, will slow down, stop, then appear to move backwards, or retrograde, across the sky. This is an optical illusion, In reality, the movement of “moving backwards” is not true; it is simply banking a curve in its orbit and appears to be moving backwards to the human eye. These times are called “retrogrades” and they occur with Mercury three times in a year as we know it. When Mercury is moving forward, negotiations succeed, contracts are signed, travel is easy and clarity in communications with others are easy. During the three Mercury Retrograde times, e-mails are sent into cyber-space, letters get “lost” in the mail, documents should not be signed, and agreements and major decisions should be delayed, as many of these contractual decisions might need to be “re-worked” after Mercury goes direct, or once again returns to a forward movement position in the sky. Other things to consider delaying in the event of a Mercury Retrograde: * Making car repairs (unless necessary) * Purchasing major appliances * Purchasing cars (might buy a ‘lemon’) * Signing a mortgage or other legal documents * Making serious life changing decisions * Initiate new businesses or new programs for success Things to do to ride out a Mercury Retrograde: * Send in payments early; double check that they were received * Delay any medical or dental procedure, if possible * Back up computer to hard drive, save all important documents * Make sure computer system is on a power strip or surge blocking device * Make sure you allow plenty of time to travel any distance * Do not commit to a relationship or a change in a relationship * Do not sign contract (if possible) * Download newest security software to computer and cell phone The time during a Mercury Retrograde can successfully be use to spend in quiet and journal and reviewing what has occurred in the past three month, so that you can see objectively the successes and roadblocks you have experienced. It is also a time to write down specific goals for the next three months. With is particular Mercury Retrograde being in the sign of Gemini (which is the signs Mercury rules – as well as Virgo) be extra, EX-tra, EXTRA careful on what you say. Things might get totally misconstrued and then you’ll have a lot of explaining to do. Take it easy, take it slow. Say nothing, and let things work themselves out....

Free Candle Spells | Mercury Retrograde Stations for 2015

Free Candle Spells | Mercury Retrograde Stations for 2015   Mercury, the planet of Communication, will go in Retrograde three times this year as it always does, seemingly throwing us a proverbial “wrench” in plans. The dates for the Mercury Retrograde periods for 2015 are as follows: * January 21st to February 11, 2015 * May 18th to June 11, 2015 * September 17th to October 9, 2015 When Mercury enters it’s Retrograde station, it appears to have stopped moving across the night sky and will appear to be retreating backward, hence the word retrograde. It has been said that during this time of moving backwards, communications in all forms is troubled and difficult to work through. There has been times during a retrograde period that computers will crash, letters get stuck or lost in the mail, deadlines are not met and relationships of all kinds, both personal and professional, are strained in some cases. Many people who are aware of these effects or if they have aspects that are affected by Mercury’s Retrograde station in their astrology chart, will prepare and work with the retrograde stationing. Many are not aware that this planet is affecting us and the frustration of delays and broken promises and missed deadlines make us feel like we are being personally attacked in some way, therefore bring hurt feelings to the surface and sometimes built up slights and actions will more likely be vocalized during this time – the ‘shadow’ affect of us holding in these emotions. The release of this energy is what a Mercury Retrograde is about. When Mercury is moving backwards, it is retreating “into its shadow” and this is when those ‘shadow’ remarks, feelings and situations are revisited and may resurface. Communication during Mercury Retrograde is cloudy and more of a challenge than other times, and taking steps to work on things with introspection is a safe way to get through the three weeks of the retrograde times. Although some things are never predictable, here are some things you can do to survive a Mercury Retrograde: * If at all possible , do not sign contracts or other legally binding agreements during this time. Ask for more time to review and reflect on the agreement. * If paying bills by the postal service, plan for a couple extra days to get to their destination without the possibility of a late fee or interruption of service. * It is advisable not to make grandiose professions of love or propose marriage during this time as some verbiage may be misconstrued. Better to wait out the three weeks of the retrograde cycle. * Back up your computer to a hard drive or flash drive in the event electronic communications go haywire and your projects are frozen in cyberspace or worse. * Try to plan car maintenance repairs either before or after the retrograde cycle as you may find that you night have to have the job redone afterward. Of course, you will have to make emergency repairs and those may also need a “re-do” but the less that you spend on car repair during retrograde periods, the better it will be for your budget. * It is best not to ask for a raise or promotion at these times, but to hunker down and focus on getting your job done in an effective manner to please the employer so you can ask for the raise after the retrograde period is over. * When facing an approaching retrograde period or if you are in the throes of one, make sure that when speaking to people that you choose your words carefully as some people will tend to be more sensitive during the retrograde...

Free Candle Spells | Mercury Retrograde Ends!

Free Candle Spells | Mercury Retrograde Ends!   Mercury, the planet of communication ends it’s thrice-yearly march through our lives. Some sail through a Mercury Retrograde, depending on where the planet was at the time of their birth, but for the majority of us, it is a pain in the…ahem! We don’t have to say much more! OK, so the new clothes you bought suddenly became ugly, the car will have to have another alignment because the first one didn’t resolve the wheel wobbling. Your love life in in ruins and you suddenly think you’ve been shafted by the insurance agent for more coverage than you need. Your world went haywire and now you have to pick up the pieces and do over all what you thought you have accomplished. I was once an non-believer of Mercury Retrograde until I was the recipient of some harsh reality. Many years ago I drove a delivery vehicle for a flower shop during February. Early into the month, I casually spoke about Mercury Retrograde and how the symbol of the FTD florist was the winged god Mercury. Their cross-country flower ordering communications system was affectionately called “Merc”. A couple of days before Valentine’s Day, the Retrograde period began. The “Merc” went down and the flower shop owner had to call in a computer technician. They made attempt after attempt to get this system up and running, all the while sweating bullets because one of the largest volume floral holiday was breathing down our necks. I made a comment that it was probably Mercury Retrograde that was affecting the machinery. On February 13th, it was finally fixed. The machine printed for over an hour straight, not stopping with the exception of having more paper put in the bin, and order upon order had been “stuck” in the system. We had to work all night to make sure each and every order was filled. The owner told me, “Don’t ever tell me again when there is this Mercury Retrograde. I don’t want to hear about it!” By the way, my purse was stolen on Valentine’s Day as I was out making a delivery. Some punk broke in the van window to open the door take my purse and a dozen roses. Must have been karma for the “messenger” – me. Despite what you have experienced during this Retrograde, here are some positive actions to take to help get things back on track: * Back up computer files. Do system scan for bugs and fixes. * Change your passwords to all major accounts online. * Check your banking accounts to make sure no erroneous charges were attached to your accounts. * Go through that stack of letters on your desk, making sure that you systematically toss or file each item so that you do no miss anything. * Contact anyone who you had a disagreement with during the last three weeks in an attempt to resolve any lingering conflicts. * Reiterate your position on major decisions and go over any contracts you may have signed during this time to be sure you completely understand the terms of the document. * Detox and purge your body. Use Bach’s Rescue Remedy Flower Essence to bring you back to calm. Take Epsom Salts baths. Eat lightly and drink spring water for a couple of days. Drink dandelion tea to cleanse the blood. Take naps, if you have that luxury. More importantly, reflect on the incidents that occurred during this time and reflect on their meaning – the “whys” and “hows” of their occurrence. Re-evaluate what was going on in your life three weeks ago and make a list of how you could have handled it...
