Mercury Retrograde in Scorpio: Do you believe in magick?

I’m sure you’ve heard about Mercury Retrograde—exes come back, computers go haywire. Sure. These can actually be true but retrogrades offer insight and an extended period to focus on an intention.

Let’s start out with what Mercury represents. Mercury is thought, communication (includes technology), our thinking brain, nervous system, and how we process information. In Mercury lore, it’s said that Mercury, while retrograde, acts a psychopomp. A psychopomp guides the newly deceased to the underworld. This is a sacred job. All of Mercury’s attention is on this duty so the list above is tabled for a few weeks. This is why we perceive things as going wrong during this time. We cannot count on Mercury to do the work for us. We need to play the role of Mercury for ourselves—triple check emails, auto-save documents, etc.

Surrendering to Hades: Pluto-Moon Transits, Part Two

So here we are again at Pluto sextiling my Moon. If you haven’t read The Trials of Hades, do that first to ground into the energy I’m talking about. This is a continuation of that story.

I don’t know if it’s because I did my Pluto homework or because Pluto is retrograde, but DAYUM, this round was so much easier, dare I say, pleasant at times. Pluto’s first pass was back in January so I’ve had 7+ months of equally intense transits (Saturn Return, Saturn trine Venus, Saturn in general lol, Uranus square). During The Trials of Hades, I was living in a stressful situation and my life (my business, my purpose, etc) was stagnant. Pluto ripped me open to show me all of that. I saw how alone and unhappy I was. I honestly still do not know where I’m going but I know I’m closer than I ever have been. I know that I have myself and that is my biggest strength.

we’re entering a time of exploration, within and without us. we’re asked to see all possibilities, hold all answers, all paths. we bloom in the multi-faceted. we bloom in the holographic. there’s beauty in every thing, and now’s the time to embrace it. hold onto it. carry it close to your heart. this joy, this beauty, this love allows you to find playfulness in vulnerability. we find reflections of ourselves in others, and sometimes healing can look a lot like having fun. welcome in the light. it’s time for big belly laughs. you have access to this no matter the time, no matter the place. you carry this close to your heart, always.

The Trials of Hades: Pluto-Moon Transits

You know you’re dealing with Pluto if you feel like you’re being crushed. No matter what you do, life gets more and more intense. Do not fuck with Pluto. Close your eyes and be crushed.

I’ve consciously dealt with Pluto twice now in the past six months, and both times I mistook it for Saturn. Saturn feels like you’re being squeezed. Saturn wants structure and boundaries, so I’ll work tirelessly to create and uphold those. Nothing lets up. I’ll plead with Saturn, “I’m doing everything you want. Can’t you see it? What else could I possibly do?” And then I suddenly feel a pit in my stomach.. Oh, this is Pluto.

our heads are high up in the clouds now. we're thinking + planning + resituating. the past month was rough. we faced our shadows + found more shadows still lurking deeper. but now we feel revived! our energy is up, we feel optimistic, we're ready to take action! fire energy is raw + fast, which feels so good! we've missed this rush! but.. a message carries over from the last moon cycle: to slow, to calm, to ground. we can't wear ourselves out. we need to find balance. we need to find peace. let's also be curious, let's be magickal. how can we bring spirituality into everyday tasks? how can we live out our highest selves? let's manifest our lives into what we dream of.
