All Retrograde are good reviews times, I know it’s hard to keep track of the days and time now. Old conversations may come up again, people you were texting or connecting up with on the net, dating sites etc. may pop back up. All Retrogrades are considered to be karmic in nature.
We need to communicate with each other much more and relate in more direct ways.Mercury Retrograde takes us backtracking through old relationships, old conversations, the same old thinking patterns, the same rebalancing act, and helps us to rewrite the mental patterns and habits.

It’s LEO time as theSUN GOD APOLLO enters fiery passionate proud Leo July 22 @ 7:26 am PDT/ 10:26 am EDT/ 2:26 am GMT.
The Sun God, Apollo, rides his golden chariot into his own HOME sign, where he is happiest to shine the brightest. The Sun is a Star.
“Every man and every woman is a Star. “-Aleister Crowley from the Book of the Law 1904. We need to realise our own star stuff in the cosmic circle.
LEO is the 5th sign, the KING and Queen of BEASTS. Female Lions really rule their prides. LEO rules the HEART, love affairs, children, creative self- expression, will power, pride, courage, EGO, DRAMA, actors, leaders, the ROYALS, luxury, gold and red, orange, yellow, excess, strength, Bohemians, Damascus, Syria, the stage, heart attacks, brokers, movie theatres, government, the spine, bright yellow stones citrine, yellow diamonds, sapphires.
While the Sun is in LEO it is a very good time for love and romance.
July 22/23 SUN inconjuncts JUPITER on AQUARIUS FULL MOON
August 1 SUN MERCURY CONJUNCTION at 9 LEO
Aug. 1/2 SUN OPPOSES SATURN, 10 degrees AQUARIUS-karmic tests
Aug. 4 SUN trine CHIRON in ARIES at 12 degrees -wounded healer
Aug. 6 SUN square URANUS in TAURUS at 14 degrees-chaotic
Aug, 14/15 SUN inconjunct NEPTUNE in PISCES at 22 degrees-tough
Aug, 17 Sun inconjunct PLUTO at 24 LEO- tough
Aug. 19 SUN opposes JUPITER at 27 degrees – a very positive aspect
The 5th sign is akin to the ancient 5th element which is SPIRIT, always symbolized by the SUN. Ancient Egyptians and many indigenous cultures, the Inka in Peru, still worship the Sun God as Inti.
For the Leo month 10 things to ROAR about.
1. SHINE YOUR LIGHT. You are the source, shine your light for all to see. You are the main player, the director and the star of your own life. Be Proud of who you are.
2. DRAMA: Be aware of all the dramas you create or allow into your life. Why do you need them? What does it feed in you? You have the will to change it.
3. BE THE STAR. Act like you are someone you admire and want to be like. Get your courage up and really GO FOR IT. Take charge of your life. You have the will.
4. HEART CENTERED: Stay in your heart, be in love with the world, and with yourself. POSITIVE SELF-ESTEEM. Treat yourself well, healthy pride based on positive self- esteem is good.
5. EGO: It is important to have a healthy ego. The banishing, torturing and negating the ego in many spiritual and Christian teachings is a twisted Patriarchal shadow. We need our egos as they are our identity but they must not be what we identify with, or all ow the ego to run our consciousness. The ego is really the little, fearful, mortal ” I” acting like he is a king. The Emperorer’s New Clothes is a fairytale teaching story about not letting your ego control you. Keep you ego in check like you would a stubborn dog. In an Age of vanity and superficial Selfies you need to be aware of how your Higher Self, your Soul Star is your real identity. The more selfless the healthier. The more you give to others, the happier you will be.
6. PLAY – your inner child needs to play all the time. When is the last time your did finger-painting, or made sand castles? I know the world is pretty heavy, but you can still take it lightly.
7. CHILDREN: Do something nice for an underprivileged child, so many are denied the most basic of life’s necessities while we mainly live like King’s and Queen’s here in the West. Good time to focus on the question, Do i want to have a child? Be a parent? Why yes or no?
8. GET CREATIVE- It’s our natural state. Our ancestors always painted, danced, sang. Be Happy.
9. STAY POSITIVE, Practice positive thoughts and affirmations. Banish negative thoughts. Bring down the Light. You have the power in your response to everything that is thrown at you.
10. BE CONSCIOUS of everything you do. The LIGHT symbolizes clarity of consciousness. We were all originally made from LIGHT, we are the LIGHT. You are the source of your life. No one has any real authority or power over you. Spread your light. This BIG LIGHT Of mine, I’m gonna let it shine.
LEO is the Card of STRENGTH in the TAROT #11 or #8
The card of STRENGTH traditionally has a woman opening the jaws of a lion. She has a LEMNISCATE or INFINITY symbol hovering over her head. There are thousands of variations on this symbol. Sometimes it is #8 or #11. Too complicated to get into now.
The Card symbolizes the will over the beastial, lower animal nature, greed, survival, vanity, jealousy, and everything which LOWERS one’s consciousness.
That ability of the Feminine- the Soul, LOVE to control the lower animal nature is a mind/heart/spirit focus which is called KUNDALINI energy.
The highest SOLAR consciousness is available to us at this time. The SOLAR LOGOS as Theososphist Alice Bailey referred to it, is the highest Light Master teachings available the same as Buddha, Christ etc.

Big week ahead June 14- as restricting planet SATURN Squares URANUS planet of freedom for the 2nd of 3 squares in 2021 the last one was on February 17th.
Horoscopes for all Signs under this conservative versus radical square. We can see the pulls and the face offs going on between these two powerful planets.
Saturn represent the limits of physical reality and was the last of the classical seven planets visible by the naked eye. Then Uranus was the first planet to be discovered through a telescope by astronomer William Herschel on March 13, 1781. That discovery changed the world view. Uranus became known as the planet related to technology because of the way it was discovered and a planet of higher consciousness taking us beyond the former boundaries described by Saturn.

Inside the belly of the beast a modern Jonah and the whale Story. Lobster diver Michael Packard,56, was accidentally swallowed by a humpback whale off of Provincetown an incredibly super rare occurrence and is spit out and survives with minor injuries. A whale of a tale.
More Neptune in Pisces amazing archetypal storieswhich mirror our collective spiritual condition. Being in the belly of the beast yah that’s exactly where we are now
Michael was born in 1965 when Uranus and Pluto were conjunct in Virgo, Neptune was in Scorpio place of death and rebirth, and Saturn in Pisces sign of endings, karma. Transiting Neptune is Trine to Neptune and opposed to Uranus and Pluto in Virgo. It was inevitable that this archetypal Jonah story would happen
Mercury Turns Retrograde May 29 at 3:33 pm PDT/6:33 pm EDT 11:33 pm GMT at 24 Gemini. And it will make your life a living hell for a few weeks. Especially in Gemini.
Do not fear or dread Mercury Retrograde. I was just kidding. This popular nonsense about Mercury Retrograde being hellish, horrible and time to lock yourself away until it’s all over is all misguided and overwrought. It would be good to do a social media break though.
Mercury is also known as Hermes the Olympian messenger god of commerce, thieves, travelers, sports, athletes, and border crossings, fish, wits, gamblers, and guide to the Underworld. He is the only God who is allowed to travel into the Upper Worlds of Heaven and the Lower Worlds of Hades or Hell. He is also a hermaphrodite, a dual sexed symbol of our brain itself which has a right and left hemisphere. Mercury is considered to be The TRICKSTER, a shape-shifter, and shaman. Mercury is based on the ancient Egyptian God Anubis who also carries a serpent wand.Mercury is THOTH the scribe.
Think of Mercury Retrogrades as beauty naps for the brain.
MERCURY in the TAROT is the #1 Card of The Magician
This is a good time to meditate and detach from the mental chatter and learn to watch the mind endlessly create its stories.
You know what to do, back up computers, cell phone etc. Don’t start new projects but do review go over old communications, conversations, etc.

Mercury enters retrograde zone/shadow on May 14, 2021, at 16° Gemini 08′
Mercury stations and turns retrograde on May 29, 2021, at 24° Gemini 43′ Rx
Mercury stations and turns direct on June 22, 2021, at 16° Gemini 08′
Mercury leaves retrograde zone/shadow on July 7, 2021, at 24° Gemini 43′
TODAY MAY 29
family tension levels will be high May 29 with a scrappy Capricorn Moon opposing Mars in Cancer. Your tummy will be topsy-turvy from stress, don’t eat to soothe it, remember to breathe. Mercury turns Retrograde today you may have to eat whatever words you spit out in anger.
The Main thing to do when Mercury is Retrograde is RELAX.
Yes, the rule is not to start anything new because we time and communication are in a regressive moving backwards, review phase. Everyone needs time to pause, reset, renew, review, repair, rewind, rescind, regard, regress, relent, etc. etc.
Just chill. Expect that communications will go awry and redouble your efforts to manage this. Yes, even Amazon packages may get lost. Many things will get lost in translation. Expect communications snafus and you won’t be disappointed. But it’s not the end of the world. Do take this Mercury Retrograde as a chance to give your overwrought mind a rest. It desperately needs it.
Mercury moves Retrograde on average about 1/3 of the year. We need to sleep 8 hours a day which is also 1/3 of our entire lives. Nature always does everything in balance. Even though Mercury Retrograde is an apparent illusion, it appears real and the planets are also symbolic indicators for us to take our cues from. Mercury Retrograde is a natural time to rest whenever it occurs. All you drilled in non-stop worker drones need to chill.
Make Mercury Retrograde work for you by playing by the rules of doing everything that has the prefix Re. Mercury Retrograde’s symbol is Rx it is good medicine.
GEMINI and VIRGO HEADS UP. Your ruling planet is about to nap.We can make mental leaps and bounds during this time too.
ALL AIR SIGNS GEMINI LIBRA AQUARIUS
You get the easier supportive trine this time.
ALL FIRE SIGNS ARIES LEO SAGITTARIUS
Aries and Leo gets a sextile a nice easy aspect to work with.
SAGITTARIUS gets the opposition you may feel pulled in two directions but if you work with it you can get good results. Really dig in and get a lot of writing accomplished which will last in the long run.
WATER SIGNS CANCER SCOROIO PISCES
Cancer is untouched. Just swim, watch your dreams.
Scorpio gets inconjunct which can make things a bit knotty, Try to let go of the conversation which you didn’t get to finish now. You don’t need to keep carrying around that baggage anymore.
Pisces is squared by GEMINI. This puts pressure on you to get your words and communications refined. Early PISCES is swimming with Jupiter, late Pisces are experiencing the Retrograde more directly. Your Mental health issues need to faced and dealt with. This is a great time to seek help. Listen to your dreams and do a lot of reflecting on them. There is a wealth of material to work with. Manage your stress by mindfull breathing
EARTH SIGNS TAURUS VIRGO CAPRICORN
Taurus is untouched. Just chill, Go over old books, reflect on beauty in your life.
Virgo is squared and affected more because Mercury is your ruling planet too. DO inventory rewrite, reflect, reread things. Change up your diet too.
Capricornis in the quincunx with Mercury and it affects PLUTO. This can be a heavy mental time for you, shadow material can well up and make you feel rather infuriated.
Mercury in Gemini again May 3 until JULY 11. Thats over 2 months of rapid fire communications. BUt the communicator planet it will turn RETROGRADE May 29 to June 22 from 24 degrees 41′ Gemini to 16 degrees 16′ Gemini.
This means Mercury Shadow period starts when Mercury hits 16 degrees on the 14th of May. But mercury Retrogrades can be used to review, rewrite, renegotiate all communications and social media things.
It is GEMINI appreciation time.
HEADS UP! there are two more Mercury Retrogrades this year and also September 27 to October 17 in LIBRA – 25 degrees 28′ to 10 degrees 10′ of the social network sign for those who love to plan ahead. Virgo this means you ruled by Mercury too.
Mercury rules Gemini, and every time Mercury returns to his daytime sign the planet/ God is incredibly happy. Mercury governs two signs Gemini and Virgo.
Gemini is the fleet-footed, and winged hatted and sandaled messenger of the Gods, he is the Ancient UPS, and a form of Amazon, the Internet, every salesperson, FTD Florists, the Mercurial trickster God. MERCURY, known as HERMES to the Greeks and THOTH to the Egyptians.
Mercury in the Tarot is the Magician #1 because Mercury symbolizes our consciousness, thinking, analysis and communications.
Mercury’s metal is Mercury or QUICKSILVER like Gemini energies MERCURY used to be in thermometers, and in dental fillings. Mercury’s properties made it hard to pin down, which describe Gemini energies perfectly. Quicksilver is a toxic poison and an Alchemical metal as well. The Quicksilver Messenger Service were a band in the 60’s.
Mercury is a PSYCHOPOMP. I love that word. It means he can travel between the three worlds. This third dimensional world he can go visit Hades/Pluto in the Land of the Dead, Hades or the Underworld and return to the land of the living. Very few Gods even had this power. Shamans have the power to travel between the worlds as well.
Mercury’s symbol is like the caduceus. Modern and ancient Medicine uses the caduceus to signify the healing profession. The caduceus was originally employed by Chiron and Asclepius as snakes were used to help heal people in Ancient Greece and snakes were used in the Oracles at DELPHI. These reptiles are magical animals of the Earth Goddess since always, two snakes entwined around the central staff or spine also symbolizes Yogic KUNDALINI sexual energy.The caduceus is an ancient symbol of DNA; the twin poles of consciousness, balance and the combining of opposites in ALCHEMY to produce something entirely new. This symbol is a deep psychological image associated with GEMINI and mental health. Which is not usually what we think is associated with this sign. This also symbolizes the power of our minds to create our health as in modern Positive thinking or intention setting. As Gemini follows the first earth sign Taurus it also symbolizes Mind over Matter. I just had an epiphany and got this while Mercury is in Gemini since yesterday!
Gemini is a dual AIR sign, and they never get old if their minds are stimulated. Mercury is the frequent flyer and chief communicator between Mount Olympus, the above, the Conscious and the below.
Unconscious, Mercury/Hermes is a mediator, a listener, an eavesdropper, a go-between. In modern days, a MERCURY ruled person, and we all are, is a compulsive twitterer or FB junkie whose iPhone never leaves their body.
Mercury in the TAROT is the # 1 symbol, THE MAGICIAN /TRICKSTER
#1 The Magian from The Muse Tarot
famous as COYOTE wisdom in Native American legends.
When your mind plays tricks on you…guess who is to blame?
HERMES is a hermaphrodite; His name means HERMES & APHRODITE Mercury is both male HERMES and a female VENUS/APHRODITE.
The sign’s ruling planet comes HOME- when a planet is at home it feels, relaxed, in its own element, STRONG. Mercury in Gemini stimulates nanosecond thinking, uber talking- hope you have a great chat plan during these Gemini times.
PETER PAN is GEMINI’s God
Peter Pan is a symbol of what Psychologists called PEUR mentality. A childlike, fun time, curious and non-committal. There may be much mental Ado about not much during Gemini times. Gemini loves to play devils’ advocate.
But ya gotta love ’em, they are very charming and move too fast for you to pin them down. Yes, social butterflies those Gemini’s are…
Their main thrust during GEMINI season is to gather information, move like the wind, gather info, be mentally stimulated, ever young, upbeat, charming as hell.
Mercury is the God of merchants, the word Mercury is contained in that word, Thieves, pirates, travelling and snake-oil salesman, Gemini’s are actors, open, changeable, quick-witted, exciting, philanderers, shysters,
VENUS is, of course, Retrograde in Gemini.
so, can’t make up your mind between Frank, Harry, or Justin? or which job to take? or which school to go to or which….or that old friend/ lover enemy, frenemy just re-entered your life again, what to do about that? or what to do…
If only they/we can get over the tendency to do one or the other ANGEL or DEVIL DUALITY is their thing, But the TWINS are not opposites but complementary pairs.
In the TAROT the symbol of GEMINI is associated with THE LOVERS
and the opposite sign of GEMINI is SAGITTARIUS which is associated with ALCHEMY again back to HERMES/ MERCURY.
There are many famous GEMINIS’s.
