Happy Anniversary my sweet home! 13 years ago today, I signed the papers and was given the key to you – my first new home! And so to my home I would like to express my gratitude and appreciation for: keeping me cool in the summer (your welcome for the new HVAC) and keeping me warm in the winter, dry when it rains or snows! For giving me a lovely place where I have experienced life and all its wonderful twists and turns, more joy than sorrow for 13 years and soon you will be paid off!! LOL Oh how time flies when you are having fun! In 2017 I have big plans for you home sweet home… update your look inside and out. But for today, just know how grateful and blessed I feel to have you…a home of my own!

Mercury in retrograde from February 23 thru March 17. During this time we can experience energy slowing down, miscommunication, electronics acting kooky and delays in travel among other things.
Mercury (Roman) or Hermes (Greek) messenger of the Gods. He has a winged hat and winged shoes which indicate or symbolize quick travel. He influences: Intelligence, Education and Truth. Travel, literature, poetry, merchants and thieves. And he can be quite a trickster and bad boy at the drop of a hat.
Did you know too that in 1782 he was the U.S. Postal Service’s first symbol and of course today we see him as a symbol for flower delivery?
Astrologically Mercury in retrograde indicates it is time to reflect, redo, revaluate. He can affect each of us differently too based on our astrological signs.
The good things about Mercury in retrograde and this is where our focus should be in order to get through smoothly during this time:
Old friends you haven’t seen in a long time resurface as you either run into them or they call you out of the blue. Interestingly, many of those who are adopted and searching for their birth parents find them during Mercury in retrograde – same for those who searching for lost siblings. Lost mail reappears and salespeople can benefit by going back over their previous sales and reconnecting with those clients for new sales rather than forging new clients. Also, those who are in therapy often have big breakthroughs during Mercury retrograde.
On that note, here are some ideas to help be calm and in the flow of life during Mercury Retrograde:
1.) Be open and flexible to life and be detached from things. Mercury is an intellectual planet and not emotional so if your friend or sweetie flies off the handle and says something mean take a moment and breathe. Don’t react too harshly – at first. Simply reevaluate what is going on and where this is coming from
2.) Slow down and make time for you and yourSelf – be creative, relax; write, journal, draw, garden, dance!
3.) Allow, Allow, Allow do not resist anything.
4.) Meditate, sit quietly alone in the silence and breathe.
5.) This is a good time to brainstorm, visualize, plan – or go over past plans and dreams and see where you can readjust to make them happen.
6.) Be Attentive while traveling, walking, driving to your surroundings and safety
7.) BE VERY CLEAR to those around you to be sure there is clear understanding between you and others when communicating. This goes for conversations, orders, emails, phone calls etc. Be sure others understand what you are saying and you understand what they are saying.
8.) Finish up projects you have had to put on the back burner so to speak
9.) Reflect on your life and where you are and listen to your heart and soul not your mind for direction or new direction
10.) This is a fun time to get of your mind and delve into non-rational experiences such as; going to a psychic fair, get a reading from a medium or psychic.
And lastly, I use this affirmation to keep me safe and all good at all times: I intend that I am guided, guarded, protected and in line with my highest good at all times. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.
Are you being bothered by someone or some situation that is causing you to hook into negativity? Being involved with people and situations where we are not experiencing peace, harmony and happiness is a good sign that we have again created a situation that is less than what we are capable of creating. Take note and responsibility and realize that since you created/attracted that to you either consciously or subconsciously through your OWN thoughts and feelings you can change recreate to a better situation. When you first resolve your own frustrations then life situations are more easily solved. Start with your feelings and thoughts about others and improve/change to better, congenial thoughts and the people in your world either start responding more haromoniously or they will move out of your life completely. They won’t be attracted to you anymore. Remember whatever and whoever you fight and criticize and resist stays attached to us through these negative emotions. As my grandmother always says “just bless them honey and move on!” and it works because I have tried it and still use it whenever I get that person or situation in my life for my lesson of “bless and release”!
