Mercury is the “Messenger of the Gods”. Mercury was the only god who could both ASCEND to Mount Olympus and DESCEND into Hades. These mythological metaphors symbolize that this planet ties together the Self-Conscious (Middle Self) with our Super-Conscious (High Self) and Sub-Conscious (Low Self). When all aspects of our being are united then there is UNLIMITED POTENTIAL!

Mercury is the key to ACTUALIZING INTENTIONS. In the Tarot, Mercury is THE MAGICIAN!


Astrology is an excellent tool for timing magical intentions and increasing the chances of them manifesting.

Mercury STATIONS RETROGRADE on January 5, 2016. This is an excellent time to turn inward and REVIEW.

There are three SIMPLE and EASY processes that can be utilized.

The FIRST PROCESS involves checking in with your NEEDS:
1) Create four columns on a piece of paper, or your computer.
3) List your feelings in the first column. Feelings come from needs being met, or not being met.
4) List your needs in the second column. Make sure they are your needs and not your expectations of others.
5) Group the needs together, if any are related.
6) Imagine what it would be like if these needs were being met. What is your HEART’S DESIRE? Access your INSPIRATION! Use your IMAGINATION!

We will come back to the third and fourth columns later.


The Sun and Pluto meet up the same day the Mercury retrograde begins. The Sun is our LIFE EXPRESSION and CREATIVITY. Pluto is the power of TRANSFORMATION. Pluto is also WILL-POWER. Inspiration leads to ASPIRATION. Imagination leads to MOTIVATION.

The SECOND PROCESS involves SELF-EVALUATION and generating energy to CREATE CHANGE. On a separate piece of paper, or page on your computer, write out these four simple questions:
1) What do I WANT?
This is the WATER ELEMENT. This picture comes out of the first process outlined above. State what you want aloud.

2) What am I DOING to get what I want?
This is the EARTH ELEMENT. If I only have control over my own thoughts, words, and actions, then how am I utilizing these resources? State what you are currently doing with your thoughts, words, and actions aloud.

3) Is what I am doing to get what I want WORKING?
This is the AIR ELEMENT. How do I measure progress, or lack thereof? How long am I willing to wait? If things do not change, how long am I willing to tolerate it? State whether or not what you are currently doing is working aloud.

4) If what I am doing to get what I want is not working, then what am I WILLING TO CHANGE?
This is the element of FIRE. The idea is to create energy for change (Fire). This then feeds back into the first question of what you want (water). State your intent to change aloud. Create passion!

Cycle through these questions as many times as necessary in order to gain clear answers.
