Mercury in Leo – Express Yourself

Standard

Astro Alert
Mercury in Leo
Express Yourself

For All Zodiac Signs:
Mercury enters the sign of proud and expressive Leo today! This transit will be in this sign until September 5th, which is longer than usual due to Mercury going Retrograde, from July 25 through August 18, which is usually a challenging time. But this blog is about Mercury’s time in the sign of Leo, which affects all of us!

With Mercury in the sign of Leo our thinking is very strong, so we can feel more confident and tend to demand respect, and can get quite upset if we feel someone is talking down to us or is not listening to what we are saying. One thing we should be careful of especially once the Sun Enters Leo around July 22nd is just how aggressive, pushy, and over bearing we can get. There will be a whole lot of Leo energy swirling around and this means some folks won’t know how to handle this fiery energy, so be mindful and if you feel like your going to Roar take a break and get space!

It’s a good time to focus on your goals, and the more magnificent the goal, the better. This cycle can help you organize your thoughts to concentrate for long periods of time, which can help you meet your goals. Our minds our full of energy and our will power is strong, we are full of perseverance, and have a stronger sense of purpose.

Our minds may just naturally go to the positive, so we can be more kind, easy-going, and cheerful, even though on occasion we can be quite opinionating, stubborn, arrogant, and to forceful.

The little actions we take do really matter in this energy, but the details aren’t as important because we want to get to the point and have some fun. We are much more expressive and a little dramatic, and can do well when we get an opportunity to express ourselves, so giving speeches or telling stories can go quite well.

We also can be very charming, convincing, and persuasive because we are full of confidence and pride, especially when we speak or write. Therefore, we should be mindful to listen to people to hear them and not just to reply, because we might want to chat a lot more then usual. Also watch for gossip, it is all too easy to start talking about other folks during this time, and we can get wrapped up in what we’re talking about and end up over sharing with the wrong people.

With the planet Mercury ruling our thoughts and how we express ourselves in the sign of Leo, we may be particularly concerned with our looks and how we present ourselves, under this energy people feel more like dressing up as we are on the grand stage of life and everyone else is the audience. This doesn’t necessarily mean we will want attention from everyone however, we can be very picky and choosy about who we draw to us and be actually more closed off or even shy emotionally about our deeper truths.

It is NOT a good time to starve yourself, it doesn’t mean you shouldn’t diet or eat healthier, but make sure to eat several small meals throughout the day to keep your blood sugar level. Depriving yourself will not go well and can make you feel rather aggressive and moody! You might just crave extra saucy, fatty food, so don’t go overboard.

After working hard we also will feel more like playing just as hard, so set time aside to allow your inner child to explore and have some fun, this is a very natural way of being under this Leo energy and if we choose to ignore it and not allow ourselves some time to relax and enjoy something we love we can become quite irritated and lonely.

Mars In Retrograde – “A Slow Down”

Standard

Rubys Astro Alert
Mars Retrograde in Aquarius
“A Slow Down”
Well here we are folks, yet another planet is going into Retrograde! This time it’s Mars. Unlike when Mercury goes Retrograde, and the world’s electronics tend to go wonky, we will need to pay extra attention to our “actions” because Mars rules over our passions, drive, motivation, and physical movement!
With Mars in Retrograde moving in any direction can be difficult. This is a time when we seem to struggle with getting tasks done or we leave things incomplete. Instead of moving around physically, we tend to travel more mentally. It’s a good time to redo, renovate, and repair things instead of pushing to move forward and taking on new projects!
~Mars will be in its Retrograde cycle from June 26th through August 27th!
The planet Mars moves fast so it only goes Retrograde every two years! It’s probably a good idea to think first before starting anything and when taking certain actions, because this cycle tends to lower our energy levels and can cause frustrations as obstacles come up around whatever we make an effort to get done. Most Astrologers agree that during Mars Retrograde we should be extra cautious and if at all possible avoid activities that are considered to be risky or demanding. Lots of folks end up in minor accidents or fail to judge a situation correctly during this time.
Even during this Planetary cycle, life goes on!
For 11 weeks while Mars is Retrograde, we will have to make important decisions even though it’s not the best time. So for example, if you’re unemployed, you’re going to want to accept a new job offer. During Mars Retro you probably will feel the same lack of energy or vitality in any part of your life your take on. So for this reason alone, it’s not the best time to start anything brand new, whether it’s a job, relationship, (sexual or otherwise) or even an argument. If you’ve already started something before this cycle began, it is time to slow down, cool yourself off, and reassess what you want and desire for now before taking any further action.
It’s also not a great time to enter a sexual relationship, committed or not. But most of us don’t want to be celibate, so you probably won’t be. But if you’re planning any important events make sure to pick a time when the planetary influences are working to your advantage, and for some, the Retrogrades are a better time, but let me point out that it’s rare!! But if you pay attention to the planets or have an Astrologer on hand you’ll learn how different planetary cycles affect you.
The bottom line is while Mars is Retrograde its energy is lacking, and this is the planet of Physical Energy, so this is why starting any “new” sexual relationships are seen as being an issue. It’s doubtful once this cycle is over your desire for someone new will continue, or they might feel differently and you can end up breaking off entirely or worse being “ghosted” by your new lover.
However, it’s actually a good time to figure out what you do want around the parts of our lives that Mars rules over such as what makes you feel passionate, driven, sexual, or angry! Even if you have to wait until after this cycle is over to go after it! This is a highly intense energy, which means it’s a good time to wait things out because most anything you start during this cycle will be short-lived. The Universe might grab your attention and lead you towards someone, but this doesn’t mean you should act on it immediately! Take a step back from starting anything brand-new or making any permanent plans until the end of August when Mars is back on track heading in the right direction once again.
This change in energy isn’t to reach a final destination point, it’s not something that lasts, so we shouldn’t change course or stray too far from our normal routines. This includes starting new jobs or relationships! Even though at first it may seem amazing, later on once Mars is back to normal things can happen. It’s important not to jump or to be impulsive just to be with someone new or start up something completely different. We should take into consideration all the planets that are currently in their Retrograde cycles and how this affects us and our lives.
Timing is important even if you work very hard and feel like you’re prepared to go after what you want to accomplish, but if your timing is off you may not get things done or succeed. So for most of us, it’s best to wait until after Mars goes direct on August 27, and start new things at that time.
It just might be a time that when we must work on adjusting our expectations and calmly moving through our frustrations that get in the way of what it is we really want to accomplish. Therefore, if you have activities you want to start, take a step back and re-consider them first. Take this time to pause and reflect on your life and what your next moves will be, then once Mars is back direct you’ll be ready to go!

Mercury Retrograde in Aries

Mercury Retrograde in Aries
By Ruby

March 22nd – April 15th

The first Mercury Retrograde for 2018 starts on March 22nd at 4 degrees in the sign of Aries. Mercury in Aries brings in a fiery mental energy, as Aries is a Cardinal and Fire Sign. We tend to feel more impatient and impulsive during this time, and we can jump without thinking about our consequences first, which can get us into some trouble very quickly, or cause some unexpected problems, as it has become notorious for missed connections, miscommunications, malfunctioning electronics, travel snafus, fender benders, and more.

When Mercury is Retrograde our thinking is thrown off, as well as our perspective. So mistakes, misunderstandings, and problems involving communication are likely. It’s not a good time to sign contracts, make new agreements, buy something new, or begin new projects. It’s an excellent time to research, revisit, plan, and prepare for something later. Remember Mercury likes to take us back literally when it’s in Retrograde, so back to old friends and lovers, and even behaviors and lessons, to learn something we didn’t the first go around.

Since Mercury is in what’s considered to be the most impatient sign of the Zodiac, Aries! This particular Mercury in Retrograde is difficult when it comes to having any kind of patience! I can’t stress this enough. People have already been experiencing the impulsivity, frustrations, and aggression out there over the last three weeks while we have been under the “Shadow Period” as it’s called to the actual Retrograde cycle!

Please be extra careful during this cycle, and watch for other people and how they react and drive, they aren’t thinking clearly under this influence. Aries energy can be prone to accidents and injuries because of the impulsive energy so we may see some accidents occurring around the world, especially involving situations where we didn’t take care of details beforehand. To think we started off this Mercury in Retrograde cycle with an 800-Ton Walkway Bridge falling in Florida because it was built in less than 9 hours! That’s just way to fast during this time, as someone forgot an important detail.

We also need to watch our tempers!
It’s way to easy to get bent all out of shape and frustrated, and enter ego-battles or arguments during this time, without even realizing how we got there! This cycle brings out more aggressive behavior due to feeling confused, and it can serve as an outlet for folks to release their pent-up emotional baggage. Stay focused on your goals and what you want to conquer during this three-week-long period, and put your attention on something positive so you can direct that extra energy into something you need or want. It also is a time to watch your mouth! Remember, Mercury rules our minds, and Aries is ruled by the planet Mars, ya know the GOD OF WAR! We can wage little battles that can turn quickly into bigger issues if we aren’t careful about what and how we say things. Just remember that losing a battle is sometimes the only way to win the war. Keep your language short and sweet on this wonderful day.

With all of that being said, I want you to know you are not doomed to fail if you make important changes or moves during Mercury in Retrograde, but it can cause more issues that you will have to go back over and get extremely detailed about which can be time-consuming. Making changes doesn’t seem to be as successful settled for the future during a Retrograde period. And it can be more difficult to make a plan stick. During a Retrograde period, it’s just more tough to get decisions made from others and even if a decision is made, it is subject to change, either just after Mercury turns direct motion or much later.

Often I find that when we have to redo things during Mercury’s backward cycle, we also get rewarded with something that we didn’t realize we could even have, for all our hard work and frustration there seems to be a pay off more often than not! I was born during a Mercury in Retrograde phase and this happens to me often, where I have to redo something I swore I was done with and even though it is extremely frustrating the rewards I can’t deny are awesome, as long as I am patient enough.

Mercury in Retrograde periods aren’t the best times for communication or clarity, because our thoughts are scattered and we tend to forget what we are talking about, but we might think we know for sure what we are seeing or saying so we can be very convincing,  but it’s a time to question everything because things just aren’t what they appear to be during this cycle. Starting anything that involves communication like a new website, turning in important papers, or making business agreements, for example, can be a big fail. It’s a confusing time to launch anything new, even if it’s not related to communication period.

The world doesn’t choose to live by Astrology influences, unfortunately, so often you will see lots of website overhauls and new systems being put in businesses, and road construction everywhere! Even though this is a challenging time to do so, it seems to work out that folks feel like making changes under the Retrograde time, so you just have no choice but to roll with it. But perhaps the changes that are made now will have been gone over again and again due to the Retrograde cycle and that helps them get it right, who knows, but look for lots of interesting new changes this time around especially as the sign of Aries is all about initiating change and starting new beginnings. Avoid it if you can, I promise you will end up going back over it soon after and having to redo something, and maybe even again and again. The environment will be quite fluid and changeable, no matter what you are told or what you think.

But all we can do is roll with this cycle folks and be patient as possible with each other, that is the most important part of this whole cycle over the next six weeks actually, is to work hard at being PATIENT! Then you can avoid major issues or breakdowns.
