Mercury retrograde


FYI, Mercury turned Retrograde April 1! The New Moon in Aries with a Solar Eclipse is near, April 8th, 2024                                                                                           


HEY NOW, Al Manning would say, ILLIGITIMI NON CARBORUNDUM, which was his pet phony Latin Phrase for “Don’t let the bastards grind you down.” Al’s humor makes me smile! This has become one of my favorite phrases, as I like to encourage myself to keep going. We must persevere, in spite of whatever comes our way. Though it ain’t easy, we still have to do our best to transcend all the __________, if our intent is to survive on our way to thriving. So let us be bathed in the LIGHT & GRACE of SPIRIT which will uplift us above the obstacles.


The Great Wheel of Time is always turning, moving into seasons, always with something new and something old… like the ebb and flow of the tides… like the waning and the waxing of the moon… like the rising and the setting of the sun. Winter changes to spring and life is renewed with green fire. Earth blocks the moon from the sun and the night skies are dark with a lunar eclipse. The moon covers the sun with a solar eclipse and the primal man within feels disconnected from the life/light source. And yet the sun comes up in the morning and we have a chance to start our new day, again.


When conditions appear extra challenging, (like today)– I tell myself to shield my heart, guard my mind, and be centered in the GRACE of SPIRIT. With LOVE & PEACE, I retreat into my fortress of inner strength!


Here is this Spring’s Mercury Retrograde Survival Plan… first, it is important for me to pray more, meditate more, and strive for a transcendent spiritual center during unsettling times. If you know what you are up against, you have a better chance to get through it. I will strive to focus on what must be done as I put one foot in front of the other. I will seek to avoid social complications and, as much as possible– wait for a better time! Stay the course… these influences will pass! In the meantime, if the task is urgent then the time is always now.

Mercury Retro Survival Plan:

1) please don’t panic.

2) say less not more,  and strive to be patient with all communications.

3) stay in your spiritual center and know that while the mind is on vacation the spiritual self can soar!

4) prune all unnecessary activity – especially travel plans and new projects.

5) avoid new purchases – especially computers, automobiles, and electronic devices– these can prove unfavorable.

6) know that this aspect has a beginning, a middle, and an end… keep plodding through it.

7) don’t quit your job, change your friends, or your location – save this for better times. Frustration can be high!

8) emphasize the “better” aspects of Mercury retro: Plan a future, see old friends, work on stalled projects, clean out closets, emphasize spirituality– and look towards a better future!

9) Focus on the ORANGE LIGHT—around your head– to help promote mental clarity.

10) Consider things that bring happiness! Count your blessings! Know life is a miracle!


This spring I relish the fruit trees that are about to bloom in my yard. As I experience the pear trees flowering the smell of pears fills me with delight! Seeing grapes begin to grow and roses start to bud and bloom does make me smile. My lilac hedge blooming and sharing perfumed scents adds to the Glory of Nature. Each one of these is a miracle of life, a blessing. Count your blessings and you can never count them all! As you count, miracles multiply. Thank you for the privilege of sharing the LIGHT!
