We have the moon, Mars and Jupiter in Scorpio right now and when I saw this I knew I had to share it!
Think about it: Scorpio is right! Silence IS better than bullshit! And the lesson we all learned but too few of us follow: "if you don't have anything nice to say don't say anything at all" also applies.
Is there something in your life that you can be more silent about? Are you cultivating bullshit? I'm not making any accusations ... I am just asking us all (myself included) to consider this.
Even if we don't have any planets in Scorpio this current energy still affects us. Use it to be more mysterious. We appear wiser when we keep our thoughts to ourselves.
What are your thoughts on staying silent?
There is a nice change of energy this weekend. Mars entered Scorpio this morning and this shift will really help in terms of increased focus. Mars loves to have a goal or a mission and the placement in the sign of Scorpio helps make that happen!
Some questions to ask yourself:
How can I increase my focus at this time?
What do I truly want to focus on?
What is truly important in my life?
Is the way that I am utilizing my energy adding value to my life overall?
When we put our priorities in alignment with our true inner guidance it makes our lives so much simpler and easier. When we are free of worry, anxiety, clutter in our minds and in our physical space we feel a sense of sweet relief in our lives in general.
If you are working on aligning more with your inner guide practice can help, as can this new energy right now. If you would like help in your own journey I am here for you too.

Can you imagine a life of freedom? Can you envision a life without any anxiety, worry or stress? What would that look like to you?
When we align with our internal guidance and get into alignment with our inner wisdom so many of these outer complications fall away. We may still have to deal with jobs and kids and relationships and all of that but when we are true to ourselves it is just so much easier!
I teach alignment. I teach how to tune into your inner wisdom. I have clients who come to me and ask me to do if for them ... align my chakras, tell me what my spirit guides want me to know ... and I can do this, but it is much more valuable for me to teach how to do it instead of just doing it for someone.
Freedom is going to mean something different to everyone. To some it will mean freedom to travel the world. To others it means freedom from the pain of anxiety and worry. And to some others it may mean freedom from unhealthy relationships and the ability to fly solo. But whatever freedom means to you I am here to say that you deserve it and you can have it, too!
What freedom are you cultivating in your life right now?

Energetically there is a lot going on this weekend. First we have Mercury station retrograde. Normally I don’t put a lot of emphasis on Mercury retrograde but this station is conjunct Saturn which means we are definitely going to feel it a lot more strongly than normal. We are also going to feel it in the classic ways of obstacles, blockages, communication problems, technology problems and internally we may struggle with negative thinking more than usual. I say these things so you can prepare and counter them if you notice them happening in your life. For example, you run into a traffic snafu. You can yell and shout and clench your fists or you can just know that this is a symptom of the Mercury retrograde energy and patiently wait for the traffic to clear. Either way you will get out of the traffic mess in the same amount of time, but one experience is much more pleasant than the other for you and for any passengers you may be carrying to your destination.
Mercury retrograde lasts for several weeks and the best way to use this energy is to review where you are and where you have been recently and to make any needed adjustments to your course. This process can involve editing, reworking, releasing things that might not be working, and perhaps most importantly reconnecting to your true internal vision. Remind yourself of your true purpose and recalibrate your life to reflect that purpose more authentically.
The truth is that people just don’t like having to deal with recurring issues and I think that is really why Mercury retrograde gets such a bad rap in pop culture. But remember that by reviewing and re-aligning you are doing yourself a great service and look at this time as just that opportunity to be of service to yourself and to your larger goals.
The other big thing that is happening this weekend is the full moon in Gemini and since the sign of Gemini is ruled by Mercury you can bet this is also enhancing the Mercury retrograde vibe. The Sabian Symbol for the degree of this full moon is “A Negro Girl Fights For Her Independence In The City”. To be honest I usually love Sabian Symbols and the images they invoke but this one is certainly dated and now seems a racist stereotype. But if we can accept that as time moves forward our old ideas become outdated and even offensive I think we can learn a lot about this symbol too. We are ready to release and let go of stereotypes that are keeping us oppressed and we are ready to embrace the freedom we see after shedding these bonds. So we ask some questions with this symbol in mind:
Where are you feeling oppressed in your life?
Are you fighting for freedom from that oppression?
How can you let go of old ideas in order to create a more evolved and more independent life?
I would love to hear the answers to some of these questions either here or in a message. For myself there is so much going on lately I am truly grateful for the opportunity to sit back and ponder these questions over the next few weeks. Happy Full Moon! And try to enjoy Mercury retrograde! Since it’s unavoidable we might as well enjoy it!
