Retrograde Magic

Hello beautiful readers,

This week has seen the introduction of another Mercury Retrograde from the 7th July up until 31st July. I can’t pretend I know what this means in astrological terms with what planets are aligned or not aligned. I only know from previous Mercury Retrogrades that it can turn life topsy turvy and for the people around me. It can be a trying time where things which are not working comes up to test us and see if we’ve really grown or learned our lessons. I don’t know about you but when I know another Mercury Retrograde is coming I think to myself what on Earth has the Universe got in store for me this time. Communications can get disrupted and it’s usually not a good time to start something new.

However, despite some of the negative concepts that come out of a Mercury Retrograde when you read about it, there is also a positive spin and light at the end of the tunnel. This month is a good time for reflection and meditation. It is in those moments we can reach into our soul and find the answers. It can give clues to what we need to be working on or letting go of this month. It is also important during this time to surround yourself with positivity and positive people as you go through it.

I am working on finishing projects which is taking up a lot of my free time and this seems to be making this particular Mercury Retrograde a smoother ride. I am a bit of a procrastinator and it sometimes takes up so much energy. All the times I think about doing something (or rather not doing it), it could be time well spent to actually do something. Can you relate? I made it a commitment this month to finish what I need to finish and it’s going well so far.

When you commit and stick with it, I find that the Universe also steps in to meet you halfway. When you do what you know you need to do it makes room for new things and gives way to new energy. This is the magic of commitment and being true to yourself. It is the beauty that can come out of this Retrograde.

May you find your magic this month and dance with life.

New Moon in Gemini 2019

Hello beautiful readers! This week has been the start of a new moon cycle with the New Moon in Gemini. I love the beginning of a new moon cycle because it gives an opportunity for a fresh start and re-assess our goals, needs and desires. It is an opportunity to affect change and look at what we wish to manifest and bring into our lives. What a gift we have been given and it costs nothing! It’s all about energy and thoughts and coming into being. I like to come back to that place and see what arises with every new cycle.

I took a big break from blogging so that I could do this for a long period of time. When I first started this blog about four years ago I was travelling a lot on what I like to call my ‘soul adventures’ and visiting or trekking places in the world that would call me. After my last ‘soul adventure’, I started an adventure of a different kind in which I continued my study of metaphysics and made a decision to follow my heart (and the food) to start studying Naturopathic Nutrition from last year onwards. As I was making these changes and decisions I didn’t feel the call to write again through the blog until now so here I am.

Writing has been a big part of my life whether I have been sharing it publicly or not. I think it’s always a brave thing to share what is stirring in your soul whether it’s through writing, painting or any other creative avenues but I am hoping by putting myself out there again it may inspire others to also follow their art and calling of the soul.

With the New Moon in Gemini the themes that are coming up for me are: Connection, Communication and Self-expression. These themes are perfect for the month ahead as we are in a season where everything around us in nature is alive and with that we can also come alive. As we work with the cycles of nature in creative ways we can absolutely manifest our dreams.

Stay tuned for more adventures!
