Mercury symbol


YAY! Mercury turns DIRECT at 5:50pm today (1:50am GMT) in Sagittarius, 13 degrees. I don’t know about you, but this one hit me hard. I couldn’t muster up any enthusiasm for work or doing any of my many beloved projects. Yesterday, I pretty much laid around, worked on my jigsaw puzzle, and watched Christmas movies on TV—mostly insipid and uninspiring. Then watched Crown on Netflix—amazing and wonderful series.

Sensing the change coming even before I looked it up, in the evening, I suddenly had mucho energy,  rearranged the living room furniture, and watched The VOICE finale on TV. I already knew who won but enjoyed the show. CIA is so uncomfortable to watch but I love her voice. And, what’s with Pherell Williams’ red hair? And that oddly mesmerizing but truly bizarre performance by N.E.R.D?


Sound mix was all wrong for what I was hoping to be the best of the best—Chloe and Billy Idol. All we could hear were loud drums and guitars drowning out their voices. See it here: https://youtu.be/7ghv9MJHlfs. Better yet, watch one of Chloe’s best: https://youtu.be/yVKw88lmoDA.

Sorry for the diversion, but, hey, Mercury is DIRECT. Mind clearing, enthusiasm for life returning. Wanna dance, sing, create a-mazing goodies with flour and sugar!

This Mercury retrograde clouded our thinking and fuzzied our brains. Bad choices, confused time schedules, created havoc with appointments and anything purchased is likely to have to be returned, or replaced, or repaired. Christmas gifts purchased under this retrograde have a greater chance of being returned or having something wrong with them.

I once read that the majority of men do their Christmas shopping Christmas Eve. Smart move this year. Mercury is direct so that sweater you receive probably won’t unravel, the jewelry likely won’t break, and the candy most probably won’t have bug parts in it. Feel safer with gifts purchased after today.


Dreams now could be vivid and contain important messages. Meditate on The Magician Tarot Card (ruled by Mercury) for inspiration and psychic messages.

Mercury is conjuncting (at 14 Degrees Sagittarius) the astronomical anomaly called the “Great Attractor. This wild and weird place in the sky is sucking galaxies into it like a ravenous college student with a bowl of Ramen. What this means astrology-wise? Other than upping our creative ability, IDK. But, it’s still awesome.

Until January 18, 2018, we will still be somewhat under the spell of Mercury Rx. It needs to reach Sagittarius 29 before we are truly clear about our next adventure or able to actually dive into our next project, but prep starts NOW.


2017 SOLSTICE – December 21-24, aligns with the galactic center. And….??? you ask. This is a great time for ritual work, mantras ,meditations, and inner soul searching to bring our 8th house issues around our Shadow Self to the light for transformation into positive energy for our lives.

MOON IN AQUARIUS on December 22. It SQUARES Jupiter in the early morning, spurring prophetic dreams and glimpses into the spirit realms or alternate dimensions.

It SEXTILES Uranus in Aries tonight. Good time for philosophical conversations or crazy, funny banter. This is a good time for seeing UFOs, too. If you haven’t seen The Last Jedi, tonight is the night when you will get the most enjoyment from it or decipher a secret code embedded in the film.

On Christmas Eve, the PISCES MOON brings in some sentimentality, and Christmas cheer. Expect a tear or two of joy and heartfelt emotion.

ICHTHYSEver wondered why the fish is a symbol for Christianity? ICTHYS (Latin for Fish) became an acrostic that the persecuted Christians cleverly came up with as a secret symbol: Iesous Christos Theou Yios Soter (Jesus Christ, Son of God, Savior). Keep in mind, though that this didn’t happen until way after the supposed miracle man supposedly walked the earth. Originally Icthys was a Pagan symbol for fertility because it resembled female genitalia.

I know this has nothing to do with astrology, but now that my mind is back on, my ADD has kicked in full swing.

Happy Solstice to All and to All Good Tidings,
