Mercury goes retrograde today!!! That makes 6 planets retrograde total. Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. Retrogrades are the ultimate inner reveal, an opportunity to feel see into what is NOT working. Oftentimes we will inherently know/gno what does not feel right through an emotional reaction like frustration/irritation/a strong NO coming through, or even a physical reaction in the body!

These times are intense and are made for compassion. Hold yourself, slow down, be tender. Cry or throw a private tantrum if you need to, if you feel that energy rising up to explode out, the catalysts for life changes. Allow yourself to feel and to regress privately for a moment if it comes up. It’s all temporary, let it flow through and out to purge. Retrogrades specialize in a soul dredge of old shit. For me this is happening literally with our plumbing at home! My friend mirrored to me the new metaphoric plumbing within me requires an external plumbing outgrade. You just gotta laugh at this stuff, we can’t make this shift up.

With the retrograde energies is the massive opportunity to witness what arises and “re” all of it. This is our Master Builder codes quantum construction hat coming online for us to wear with glee. Rebuild it, rethink it, re-align it, renew it, regrid it! All the structures in our lives require updates to match us and our new frequency of being. Everything in our daily lives is an extension of us, like our cars, tools, computers, homes and so forth. This is the initiation to blueprint and then build the seeds which pattern the global cultural renaissance being birthed right now through each of us.

Mercury is also retrograde in Libra, which emphasizes our relation to our creation. What is your relationship to everything? Self, other, food, lifestyle etc.

Yes, it feels like a lot and it is, BUT this is a cosmic invitation from our planetary allies to revolutionize our entire lives, to build new foundations from the ground up. These are divine dispensations, gifts to step into a whole new level of being as a conscious creator. Thoreau said it best:


“If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be. Now put the foundations under them.”

― Henry David Thoreau, Walden



Blessings in building all new, stronger, sustainable and more beautiful foundations!


In loving service,
