There's no running away from it. Every year the planet everyone likes to blame for things going wrong, technology malfunctions, and late flights goes retrograde. This is, of course, Mercury we are talking about. The first Mercury retrograde of the year is happening on January 31st, starting at 26 degrees of Aquarius. This retrograde will last until February 20th, when Mercury stations direct at 11 degrees of the same sign.
There is a lot to unpack with this coming retrograde. February itself is quite the astrologically eventful month. For that reason, we will skip straight to the planetary forecast. If you are not so familiar with the concept of retrogrades or would like to take a more in-depth study of this planetary condition, you can refer to the blog post on the previous retrograde, called How to Navigate the Last Mercury Retrograde of the Year. It would also be interesting to revisit the last retrograde as both are connected through the same...
How intuitive are you? This may be a shocking question to receive, not because you think you are not an intuitive person. Instead, it may catch you by surprise because you never really give your intuitive talents any serious thought.
Intuition is your gut feeling. It is that old and wise part of yourself that connects you to the invisible spirits and energies all around you. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, your intuition will hint at what’s going to happen before it occurs.
Your intellect gives you the capacity to see things as they are. Your mind interprets the information you are getting and turns them into messages. Your intellect is in charge of your daily rational and irrational decisions.
Your intuition, on the other hand, describes what your senses feel. It is in charge of interpreting what the energies around you are trying to say. It highlights the message from these energies and turns them into...

How far does the Universe go? What is beyond the farthest galaxy? Is it just vast nothingness? I know this Universe is huge, but compared to all of the possibilities I could imagine, the way we view our Universe actually seems rather limiting. Even if it were a quadrillion-trillion lightyears of galaxies, it still doesn't seem all that vast compared with what it could be. Why is the Universe not filled with flying fish? Or galactic trees? Or alternative laws of physics? I know these ideas are absurd, but it seems odd that a thing within the Universe can imagine more possibilities than what the infinite Universe possesses. Doesn't that break the laws of logic? It feels like the Universe should be too big for me to even comprehend its possibility, considering I am just a speck in size.
Suppose then the Universe is infinite. I like this concept because it feels both elegant in its simplicity yet equally...

I've been reading about gravity, and I was surprised about how much I did not know. Perhaps you will be just as surprised as I was about some of these gravity facts as I was. Some I don't completely understand, but I will share with you my basic understanding in the hopes it will inspire you to learn more from other sources.
Do you know why astronauts float around in space, like those on the International Space Station or in a rocket ship? Most people assume it is because there is no gravity in space (that's what I had thought too!), but actually, this is not the case. The space station and all the rocket launches since Apollo are still close enough to Earth that they retain 90% of their gravity. They are only 200 miles up. The reason why these astronauts can "float around" has nothing to do with them being in space; it is actually because they are orbiting Earth (rotating around it). This flying around the planet...
You've recently shown interest in learning more about your astrological age. And when you find out you were going through something experts refer to as the "Saturn Return," you begin to wonder what it means for you in the coming months and years of your life.
While Saturn's revolution might not have been your priority in the past, it has proven itself worthy of your attention this time. Luckily, there have been several articles about its return and how it could affect your life.
Most suggestions made are intended for those who are going through their Saturn Return for the first time. Although some people may have their expectations about how Saturn's power could affect them, its magic always offers something different.
There is a broad spectrum of ways to make you feel the power of Saturn in astrology, but they come in themes that are common for people to understand. How you want to look at it will affect the kind of effect that it has...

Pluto is the furthest of the three major outer planets. As it slowly goes through its 248-year cycle, it shapes the course of human history in subtle yet remarkable ways. Due to its starking distance from us, it is often difficult to fully grasp what sorts of plans the dwarf planet has prepared. Still, upon historical inspection, we see that even though its works are shrouded in mystery, the transits' outcomes are incredibly tangible. Much of that obscurity is the primary source of Pluto's astrological significations. Named after the Underworld god, Pluto rules all that is unseen, the ghosts of our present and the power of change.
Though there is much that we still do not know about the planet, slowly, we are getting glimpses of what lies in the farthest reaches of our solar system. With the New Horizon's Pluto flyby of 2015, we gained new insight into the planet's appearance. In 2020, the dwarf planet stepped into the astrological limelight with Saturn and...

Every Supermoon phenomenon is something that people look forward to. It is when the Moon orbits the Earth at its closest distance, and that's why it seems more significant to those on Earth. This close distance makes the Moon appear 20% larger than it usually does.
But that's not all the Moon's effect has on Earth as it orbits closer and closer. The same phenomenon has given birth to what people refer to as Supermoon rituals. These are spiritual rituals that harness the Moon's natural energy and use it to bring about positive effects in their lives and interactions.
The Supermoon also has substantial effects on the tides, making it seemingly impossible to travel through the waters. The waves' roughness can put any life at risk, and that's why people refrain from going through the oceans during this time.
And yet, the Supermoon is not all that bad. It brings a kind of spiritual energy that gives people the energy to celebrate and be merry....

What's the first thing that you do in the morning? How you start your day can determine the kind of day it is going to be. If you start your day with a positive morning routine, you will likely spend the rest of the day with positive vibes.
You must have a list of the things to do in the morning, and each time you try to make sure that everything is covered. However, morning ritual mastery is not just about getting things done. It is more of how these things can set the right tone for the day.
While it may seem as if you are in charge of what you want to do, your zodiac sign actually has a say on what is right for you. And the best way to maximize your potential is to create a routine for yourself that will help achieve the calmness of the mind, body, and spirit.
There are positive ways you can bring out the best in your mornings in more ways than one. Here are some things you...
