Astro Vibrational Tapestry Report

Today is a quiet day that may just feel like it drags on forever! But at least we have a nice Leo moon to enjoy for the day! Leo moon is a bit extravagant and likes to have a little fun, too.
The moon makes a trine to Mars in Sagittarius which peaks at 3:51 AM. Since most of us are sleeping during this time but if we are up we will feel motivated! We may want to clean the house or paint a room or make something creative!
The big news of the day is Mercury's station retrograde at 9:04 AM. Mercury retrograde gets a bad rap because it messes with things like technology and communication. Our computers don't work. Our phones crash. Traffic is snarled. But these things are all symptoms of a larger issue. When Mercury retrograde happens the real issue is that something went wrong in the past and now it is time to go back and fix it. Humans hate going back and fixing things. They hate getting things wrong and so having to fix something is having to admit you were wrong. Often we got things wrong through no fault of our own but because of something outside of our control. New information comes to light and we feel we must act on it. This is one reason why so many of us hear from exes during Mercury Rx because there may be new information about why our past relationship failed and the ex wants to explain it, talk about it, or try again. But the best philosophy to have during Mercury retrograde is that is you can fix it, do fix it (not just talking about relationships here but about anything and everything). But if it can't be fixed let it go. And either way, be patient! Patience is always the best tool to use during Mercury Rx!
A great stone to work with today is chrysoprase which helps to increase patience. If you start feeling overwhelmed or frustrated take the crystal and hold it in your hands for a few minutes while taking a few deep breaths.
The recommended essential oil for today is patchouli which also aligns us with a sense of calm and patience and allows us to deal with the things we encounter from a spiritual perspective.
All times are in Eastern US Time.
Namaste & until tomorrow!
