Do you often hear people talk about Mercury retrograde and complain about how it has dramatically affected their productivity? It often happens that those who barely know what Mercury retrograde even means have already assumed it’s all bad luck.
This astrological phenomenon happens about three times each year. As Earth moves to another retrograde period, more people will complain about it. But do you know what’s going on exactly?
A lot of people who speak of Mercury retrograde do not have all the facts about it. This has led them to develop various Mercury retrograde calendar myths that give everyone else the wrong idea of what to expect.
The Mercury retrograde is when the planet Mercury slows down in its movement around the Sun. This means that Earth revolves around the Sun faster than the planet Mercury.
All too often, when this happens, people experience a kind of...
Does it feel like you are not living to your highest potential? Do you often feel like you are stuck in doing something you don't like? Whenever it feels like you are not moving towards the goals you have set for yourself, you are probably right.
You are not the only one with this problem. No one should ever underestimate the power of having a job that you enjoy doing. Not only does it pay well, but the act of doing it won't feel like work at all.
This is where career astrology comes in very handy. Knowing which career path to take early on will save you from all the unwanted stress that may come with a job that you don't like.
Does your job make you feel proud of yourself? Do you enjoy your time at work, no matter how challenging your tasks are?
Everyone knows that they have to have a job to pay the bills, but almost everyone says that they actually want to do something else. While there is nothing wrong about...
A man comes to a master to ask how much man is independent and free. Is he free, or is there a limitation? Is there something like fate, kismet, destiny, a God who makes a limitation beyond which you cannot be free?
The mystic answered in his way – not logically but existentially. He said, “Stand up.”
The man must have felt this was a stupid kind of answer, “I am asking a simple question, and he is asking me to stand up.” But he said, “Let us see what happens.” He stood. And the mystic said, “Now, raise one of your legs.”
By this time, the man must have been thinking he had come to a madman; what has this to do with freedom, independence? But now that he has come. There must have been a crowd of disciples, and the mystic was so respected; not to follow him would be disrespectful, and there was no harm. So he lifted one of his legs from the earth, so one foot was in the air, and he was standing on one foot.
And then the...
I pause to offer guidance in the realm of lunar magick here because of how saturated and shallow it has become in what is available to study on. My hope in you reading this article is not a scientific or historical account of how or when we sat with the moon, but rather an invitation to discover the power of ceremony within your own practice.
In this article, I will detail what has worked for me over the years very practically as a woman attempting to deepen my practice.
There is nothing new or trendy about a ceremony with the moon. Trend or not, I have found myself intuitively clearing a lot of space around the new moon and weaving magical for the upcoming lunar cycle. You know EXACTLY how to be with your body (and the moon!), and you know how you like to show up within the delicious space you create. And if you aren’t feeling that confident yet I hope you will be by the end of this article.
I have changed my life many times over in the...
Is your subconscious trying to send a message? Dreams, they say, can be a compelling means of gaining insight about who you are. A dream guide will help you interpret the message your dream is trying to send.
Most of the time, people look at their dreams as a whole and try to get a message from there. However, what people fail to see is that every detail of your dream that you remember plays a significant role in the entire message.
No matter how small or seemingly insignificant the detail, as long as you remember it, a dream analyzer can tell you what it means.
There remains to be no universal translation of dreams or concrete meanings of what every dream means. However, the repetition of dream symbols over the years have become very significant in getting the message across.
How do you read into your dreams? What is it trying to say? Looking into common symbols can help you interpret your dream. They can help you...

What does your brain do for you? Every aspect of your being moves through the brain. While it may not be something you can hold in your hand, your brain needs a little taking care of too.
Intellectual health is as important as your physical and emotional well-being.
When was the last time you gave your brain any form of exercise? If you can't remember when or what you did to help boost your brain's stamina, then you are due for one quick dose.
Exercising the brain helps improve focus, memory, and daily functionality. As a person gets older, the brain also gets older; that's why it needs more help than usual. People of all ages can benefit from regular brain exercises.
Does thinking for work count as brain exercise? While it uses a massive part of your brain, stress-related activities are not brain exercises. Instead, they are brain challenges that put your mind against a problem.
There is no doubt about it. Regular brain exercises can...
