“Between what is said and not meant, and what is meant and not said, most of love is lost.” ― Kahlil Gibran

by Amanda Painter

“Have you noticed anything going particularly awry, or any near misses that got your attention in the last couple days or so? I’m especially referring to anything that involves communication, travel, your electronic devices, or even interactions that have involved your body (and your responses to it).

Mercury stations retrograde in Taurus today, April 28, at about 1:20 pm EDT. It will remain in apparent retrograde motion until May 22. This means we’ve been in the ‘storm’ phase these last few days (and will be for a couple more); this is the phase of time around a planetary station when things can feel especially tricky.

Mercury Retrograde

April 28, 2016 at 10:40 am | Posted in Astrology | Comments Off on Mercury Retrograde


For anyone whom follows Astrology, even minimally, the two words ‘Mercury Retrograde’ packs a sort of negative sluggishness, and scape goat for anything that should mishap in the next few weeks. Bringing with it connotations of stalemate as well as regression, and plenty of challenges. For this particular retrograde, the universe seemed to want me to pay particular attention, and lead me to a variety of articles regarding the specific energies that will be reeking havoc until the end of May. To my lovely surprise, this Mercury Retrograde does not only seem less than terrifying, but also carries with it a powerful message of reinvention.

As today opened up, I stepped onto my yoga mat and allowed the different interpretations of this Astrological energy to penetrate my mind and hopefully gain some clarity. The two most important focal points of this Mercury Retrograde are regarding cleaning out, as well as…

Segment 2.
It really is dramatic, the way five planets are literally stoppng in their tracks, the last of which is Mercury who is stationing as I write. This does not happen very often! Not since a decade ago have we experienced such a collaborative phenomenon, and that was also by design. If you remember your state-of-being ten years ago, you may know why they did.

FEEL why,  I should say,  just to be clear. FEELING what you are experiencing will give you a lot more information than “thinking about” what you are experiencing ever will. That has always been true. NOW, however, it has become exponentially true. Fortunately, if  there ever was a “time” when the resistance that some still have to FEELING their own experience will finally be recognized as…

Share Your World ~ Retrograde Edition

As Mercury joins the rest of the retrograde party tomorrow ( 4-28-16) with Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Pluto, let’s take a pause. I enjoy Cee’s Share Your World challenges as a way to get off the merry-go-round and change-up my typical intense blogging style.

So let’s get started: public domain

When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen? 

I prefer pens to pencils because they leave a stronger mark. Pencil is great for sketching though.

What’s your choice: jigsaw, word, maze or numeric puzzles?

I lack the patience for crosswords, but will take a stab at one now and again. I do like jigsaw, but really don’t want to invest the time. A few years back I did complete a castle jigsaw and it was quite a lovely finished product. I am very fond of castles, so that was the draw. Typically I get my puzzle fix…

Mercury Retrograde in Taurus

April 27, 2016 at 10:12 pm | Posted in Astrology | Comments Off on Mercury Retrograde in Taurus

Well that dreaded tri-annual, month-long period known as Mercury Retrograde is here again: April 28th – May 22nd.

I’ve said it so many times before and many of us have heard it from countless sources by now, thanks to the ever-expanding internet. It’s that time of year when things and communications just seem to break down, go berserk, lose their juice, get mismatched, befuddled, and the list of woeful occurrences just goes on. But why is that? There is always a reason for the things that happen in life, and too few are willing to plunge into what those reasons are, because it would inevitably entail taking on a deeper level of responsibility and consciousness in how to respond to life’s curve balls.
