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...
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...
Whenever you think about your health, what's the first concern that comes to mind? Do you think about your physical health first, and then your psychological and emotional health comes next? Or should your mental and emotional well-being come first?
Balance is the key to successfully living a good life. You need to make sure that you're taking care of all aspects of your being. A balanced mind allows you to make wise decisions, while a physically healthy body enables you to engage in activities that will help you both enjoy and learn. And then there are activities that you can do to keep your emotional well-being in good condition.
Your life is a blessing to you and everyone around you. Taking care of yourself is one of the best ways you can give back to those who gave you life.
Our minds and our body are interconnected, and they affect each other's health too. If you take care of one, but neglect...
When was the last time you did something for leisure? It has become all too difficult to set aside some time for yourself to indulge in an activity that you enjoy. Whether it be because you are working full time or studying full time, it simply has become harder to relax.
But did you know that keeping a hobby is good for your mental fitness? While you may not have some spare time to engage in activities that you like, experts say you must find time to incorporate such activities into your daily routine.
Experts in their health and wellness tips suggest a wide range of activities that you can try. It can be something artistic like painting, sculpting, or maybe even sewing. It could be something related to music, like playing an instrument or taking up voice lessons.
Reading, photography and a new sport could all be possible hobbies you can start. Spending time doing activities you enjoy can help...
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...
Whenever people express their interest in buying their first deck of tarot cards, the first question is always this: which deck should I choose?
There are a significant number of tarot cards out there, each style more interesting than the last. It is natural to feel a bit confused in the beginning. With all the exciting choices available, it is pretty standard for people to get confused and perhaps a bit overwhelmed.
Every tarot card deck is different. While there is absolutely no rule as to how you should pick the tarot card to get, the qualities of the cards are very much reflective of your zodiac sign.
The most important thing to remember when buying a deck for yourself is that it should resonate with you. The more drawn you are to the imagery and information of unique tarot decks, the more likely it is meant for you.
Trust your intuition and believe in the connection that you are able to build with a specific...
How many diet programs have you tried? How much weight have you lost since you enrolled yourself at the gym six months ago? Whenever people talk about losing weight, they always turn to two of the most critical factors that come into play: diet and exercise.
While it is normal for people to think of grueling workout routines and eating only healthy foods, experts believe that people should turn to a more holistic approach to weight loss. Deepak Chopra suggests meditation to help people through their weight loss struggle.
Pranayama for weight loss is not something new, and yet only a few people know about it. While meditation is often associated with the need for a positive reinforcement psychologically, the positive change it brings about affects everything else.
Through mindfulness meditation, a person can rewire their body to help them modify some of the systems that it follows. In...
Every dog owner claims that their dogs love them. But how true is this puppy love? Or are dogs just clever enough to trick their owners for some dog treats? It seems as if science has taken an interest in proving that a dog's love is unconditional.
Humans and canines have a long history together. Some scientists argue that our relationship only goes back up to 10,000 years ago when humans learned how to domesticate dogs. Before that, these creatures were roaming the earth free.
However, research studies show that the two species—humans and dogs—evolved together, finding how to adapt to each other's lives. It is those adaptations that have helped both the dogs and their human companions get along just fine.
How much do you love pets? Dogs might be the first on your list, and you can tell how incredibly important they are in your life. Seldom do people wonder why their dogs are so friendly because most people...
