He’s Back..Mercury Retrograde Dec 10-Jan 11

The trickster is back! The Ghost period of Mercury retrograde has already begun in Capricorn/Sagittarius on November 22, 2010.  The magnification of Mercury will be at its strongest December 9, 2010 to December 31, 2010 and it will continue its travel through the ghost period again December 31, 2010 until it is exact position on January 18, 2011.

Many Vedic and some western astrologers consider that a planet that retrogrades commence its period about 2 to 3 weeks before retrograde position.  Especially in the Vedic wisdom, meaning prepare now for the obstacles for tomorrow and you will regress any issues due to planetary pressure. Therefore, I would consider that many of you may start the effects as early as 22nd of November.  This phase may be considered outline of what is yet to come.

Though mercury is retrograde at 5 degrees in Capricorn, there is no doubt that it will affect Cardinal signs (Aries, Cancer, Libra and Capricorn).  But it will also affect later signs of Sagittarius as well as early signs of Capricorn.  Since mercury is a very slow moving planet we have to consider the affects of mercury as a vehicle without gas.  Though it can move it is not accelerated until the engine has gasoline and right now the gas stations are closing one by one and they will reopen after the first of the year.  In addition, if you are not a cardinal sign you will not get away from this effect these issues will be intense for mutable signs such as Sagittarius, Pisces, Virgo, Gemini’s until December 21, 2010, then it moves into Capricorn magnify cardinal signs such as Aries, Cancer, Capricorn and Libras, starting as early as 22nd of December 2010 and it wont ease until 5th of January 2011.   Unfortunately mercury returns back into Capricorn at 9 degrees on January 18, 2011 when it stations it self.  Trust me when I say Mercury Retrograde takes everyone as a prisoner.

Mercury in Capricorn produces an intelligence that is traditional, systematic, determined, sensible, perceptive, enduring and well prepared.  This period many of you may become strict and lack laughter or humor at times, this is because understanding is being forced into learning and learning that bestow upon monetary security or our placement in society or work principles.

Since Mercury already rules Gemini and Virgo, it will affect our communication and practical skills.  However the disadvantage is often through Pisces who control our spirituality and emotions and Sagittarius controls how well we accept the truth and knowledge.  This means almost everyone will be affected.

Love affairs will be fickle and inconsistent due to ego centric approach.  All areas of communication are upsetting, especially matters relating to relatives, business, particularly anyone who is doing home business, travel, relationships, and estate purchases or sell of. Documents can go misplaced. Be sure to carry a journal and refer to it frequently.  Gossip regarding associates, partner and colleague should be discounted or taken for a grain of salt especially if sex or money are involved and the plot will thicken with innuendos which leads up to December 31, 2010, which is when mercury begins to move forward.

There is little choice but to re-examine our individual vision and attitude about existence. There is, however, an opportunity to expand insight into our own self-image. When mercury is retrograding in the signs of Gemini it creates a lucid and communicative focus and causes us to climb into something new and unique and you may even want to get away to a place you may have never gone before.  The information that is received by the cosmos during the retrograde period is coming at you to re-examine your past.  Thus, history may haunt you or give you a better insight into your psyche, which will be based upon the truth.  This may cause you to revert into expansion through fear that may intern cause you to dread the future or through acceptance to change. These tendency will to be prone to confusion, indecision, fickle minded, and frustrations.  Often times there are predisposition that you must do what ever you can not to become hateful towards criticism and not to take it personally.

This period can also damage any business transactions, legal issues especially matters of interactions which may be blocked in some way, and writers may have a block of some kind.  It is a time for a break if you can.  Recognize mercury is about the needs of both when it comes to romance. Since relationships are based upon needs of two there may be a choice between past relationships and the present.  It will be a time where people from the past may return in you life and it may be during this time where you may have to decide if you want to move forwards in the relationship or re-consider to have a new beginnings in your life.  Any unfinished business from the past will be re-examined at this time.  The energy of Mercury gives you the opportunity to know exactly what you are doing especially to consider closing doors or re-open them.  Many relationships that do not have a solid foundation could break up during Mercury Retrograde because mis-communication or that through re-examination it has run its course.

If there is a needed desire to keep a relationship solid, then it is advisable to consider every relationship with kid gloves, because it is bound end. Additionally if there is an ending the communication may not straighten out until January 18, 2011 and waiting too long may be a subject to little to late. However, relationships are not the only subject of concern during retrograde period.

Communications of all sorts whether it be personal, business, legal, political and even governmental will have their issues. Due to scattered energies and frustrations, there is a over all theme of quarrels, delays, minor mistakes, delayed communications, getting lost, missed appointments, mechanical outage, computer issues and most of all accidents.

To see how this retrograde will affect you especially for those who hold the any planets in Cardinal sign, Sagittarius, Pisces especially Gemini, I would suggest to contact my suggested astrologers for remedies.  Their contact information can be found here. Please note that if you want understand the past you might want to look at how mercury affected you December 26, 2009 through February 04, 2010 when mercury was in Capricorn

This conventional concept arises in the illusory planetary motion created by the orbital rotation of the earth, with relation to other planets in our solar system. Planets are never actually retrograde or stationary, they just seem that way, due to this ocular false impression.  Retrograde periods, are often problematic since human nature does not want to go back but to only move forwards, hence can not often handle change. Each planet retrogrades, except the Sun and Moon. Mercury, much like the winged messenger of the gods, comes in on feather-light wings and commands us to articulate. Communication, understanding and consciousness are all within Mercury’s sphere, as are reason and analysis, our manner of philosophy, and how we create and express our thought progression.

A mercurial nature brings to mind agitation and activity. Rat-a-tat-tat — things happen fast here. Mercury is about a quick wit, quick thinking, potential, attitude, analysis and the capability to rationalize things. Mercurial energy can be good or bad, but it will certainly be stimulating! This Planet also prompts us to move from one thing to the next and to get rejoin on both an objective and psychosomatic level. Further, Mercury’s energy is both skillful and sensitive. Mercury is about short distance travel, visiting with old friends and neighbors, and getting away for the weekend.  It also emphasizes close friends and relatives.  Mercury will also allow you to speak, write and learn.  Express your self as often and well with kindness and objectivity and anything less will not be appreciated or accepted by mercury energy.

Through mercury energy you will be taught how to communicate and if the communication is not well articulated it will be challenges.  Transportation and communication are the most influenced during mercury retrograde. Dialogs will be difficult to interpret where what is meant to be said and what is being said may confuse the simple negotiations.  This why signing contracts and being involved in legal issues may not be advisable. Hence, with a little caution and being careful in your communication with steady and slow communication the point that is made may be embraced

Have an alternative or back up route while traveling.  There may be a chance that flights may get cancelled or problem with a vehicle while you are traveling, during this time remain clam because as always have a back up plan. When you do have a back up plan perhaps if you are single you might meet someone new or if you are attached it might be a chance to get a little romantic. Use this time to do activities that start with “re”: renovate, revamp, review, renegotiate, and research…

In general, Mercury rules philosophy and insight, dispensation and distribute information and all means of messages, trade and transport. By addition, Mercury rules people who work in these areas, especially people who work with their minds or their intellect: writers and orators, commentator and columnist, scandal and spin doctors, tricksters and thieves.  Mercury retrograde gives rise to personal misapprehension; defective, dislocate, or delayed communications, talks and trade; glitches and breakdown of phones, computers, cars, buses, and trains. And all of these problems usually arise because some critical piece of information, or section, has gone lost, or wrong.  When Mercury is retrograde, everyone’s thinking is more pensive and we tend to think about topics and concern that relate to the sign involved.  Artistic inclinations including crafts, music, art or design tend to be blocked by conditions beyond one’s control. Legal matters will proceed bit by bit and unpredicted barriers tend to appear.

Mercury retrograde tends to lack depth of insight and has no tolerance for detailed scrutiny. Process and incentive for knowledge, communication and transportation are subject to obscurity under this aspect. It brings travel snafus and missed appointments of all kinds.

The good things to do when Mercury is Retrograde: contemplate, study, amend the book/poem/song/essay you’ve been writing, clean house, talk to your pet, listen to music, paint, go for a walk, learn yoga, exercise and most of all catch up on sleep!  Since, mercury is a very sluggish moving planet affecting almost every sign with no discrimination. It is my suggestion that you buy a yellow candle and shape your name through the wick.  Smear the candle with Inspiration oil or Eucalyptus oil and chant the psalm 70 every single night.  This period will last for 6 weeks (2 weeks prior 2 weeks retrograde and 2 weeks moving) and it will be hard on all of us.

These minor suggestions will allow friendly interactions as well as compassionate in circumstances. You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until January 18, 2010. Remember that with all functions of psalms and mantras achieving the desired consequences is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying relationships, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear perceptive of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to voice for many but it is a powerful foundation of energy.  I have chosen three mantras for this period. The mantra for Mercury energy is

“Om Budhaya Namaha”

(Om Bood-han-yah Nahm-ah-ha)

“Om and salutations to Buddha, presiding spirit of planet mercury” This should be recited November 22, 2010 through January 18, 2011.

Om Gurve Namaha

(Om Gur ve Nahm-ah-ha)

Should be recited November 22, 2010 until December 21, 2010

Om Shri Shanishwaraya Namaha

(Om Shri Shani-sha-war-ya Nah ah-ha)

Should be recited from December 22 through December 31, 2010.

This mantra is used to achieve mental lucidity, to shun and conquer confusion and keep welcoming interactions flowing.

It is my suggestion that you re-visit areas of your life that needs the up-most attention which is all about you.  In this life even though people in our lives do play a great role, we must take into consideration how we act towards them.  We must also take into consideration if our reaction or actions create unnecessary conflicts. All humans are given an ego and through our ego’s we can create a sublime bliss in our relationship or create chaos.  It is my suggestion to set up an in-depth reading for your self through Vedic philosophies or reach out to your Astrologers.

For those who follow my shows on December 03, 2010, at 9pm Eastern standard time.  I will be hosting Eastern Serendipity with Leslie Hale who will expand on this period and perhaps, you can get a free reading done to find out how these aspects will affect your life for 6 weeks period of time.

New Moon in Sagittarius

Oak Moon:

New Moon in Sagittarius


Maharani Rutan

On December 05, 2010 at 12:36 pm EST and 9:36 pm PST we will have a New moon in Sagittarius.  This wonderful transformation will enter Sagittarius at 13 degrees.  Many native lords named the first new moon in December as the Oak moon.  Named after the old myth this was based upon the concept that during November we grieve for what we lost and during December we are ready to face a new path.  Though it may be a be a bit early for the Oak moon the cold moon during Sagittarius moon sounds so dim, it is almost to say a new beginning occurs during the new moon instead.

Those who have been following the voids of the moon will recognize the pattern which I have been discussing since early September 2010.  Since the first moon in Aries on September 23, 2010, the pattern of the full moon and new moon have had a cluster.  The Full moon in Aires began at the early degrees of Aries and thereafter, every new moon has been between 0 to 14 degrees in the sign it magnified, as well as every full moon has been transiting in the later signs.  The full moon in October in Aries was at the latest degrees which was 29, Full moon in November was also later degrees in Taurus and the next Full moon will also be in a later degrees of Gemini.  Sequentially, the New moon in October, November and now December are all falling between 10 to 14 degrees.  This can only mean that Sagittarius’s are to have a new beginning now.

The new moon will affect early degrees of Sagittarius meaning December 2nd to December 11 babies as well as impact Sun signs in Sagittarius and progressed charts.  But it could also affect mutable signs since Sagittarius is a mutable sign (Gemini, Virgo and Pisces).  To have an exact understanding on how this moon will affect you please consult my recommend Astrologers.

The moon transits are as equality important as the lunar and solar eclipses for example the new moon will kick in my progressed chart another degree. This could mean that I will begin to take the traits of a Sagittarius even more so now than ever before even though I am a 0 degree Scorpio. If  you wish to find out more about where your progressed chart is positioned on this moon than speaking to Rex Estell is great opportunity to do so.  However, at the same time transiting charts are even equality important to understand the here and now.  For example, the new moon will trigger my Saturn which is sextiles  my Mars and Venus.  Saturn sextile my mars that Mars I will work hard and be objective to everything I do and I will accept limitations imposed on me.  At same time Saturn sextile my Venus is all about relationships, in easier terms all relationships will have stability but if the relationship is not solid and does not involve the world as a whole it will ultimately end.  The focus is to have “real” relationships which are based on the truth and objectivity.  This means that transits are a solid ground to the future.  To find out about your transiting charts and how it is affected by the new moon I would suggest you speak to Lee Stillwaters . Both of these astrologers can be found on my link page. Ask your astrologer what this moon represents for you.

New Moon is about beginning something through energy and enlightenment. You will be given the opportunity and the energy needed to look at your life in a whole new prospective.  You may even change the way you dress or as simple as the road you take to work or home.  There is definite energy to act from the spirit and following your instincts.  Living in the moment to make things happen in your life is also a part of the new moon process.  Asking your self what you want to have and how you are able to acquire this will be the theme for all.

But the best part of this moon is that it is in Sagittarius.  It means that its time to play, socialize.  It is also about music, art and finer things in life.  It’s about manifesting what you want with the all the truth behind it.  There is a greater need to approach conflicts in a calm and steady manner to over come adversaries. However, as Sagittarius searches for the truth there is a tendency of stubbornness when the argument is in your favor and it may become defensive.  At the same time Sagittarius wants peace but in their terms. So why not make music or draw art instead of making war.

Be very careful of making war during this transit period, because Mercury retrograde on the 9th of December will make life even more complicated if things are not in place now.  At the same time Gemini’s, Virgo and Pisces need to be extra cautious to maintain patients due to the Lunar eclipse  which will be touching every aspect of Gemini which signifies our moods and communication at the end of the year. Besides Gemini, Pisces and Virgos being affected my mercury retrograde-the pivotal sign that would be effect is early born Capricorns as well as late degrees Sagittarius that will feel the effect the most.  But those who have experience retrograde we all know that even if our sun or the moon sign is not where retrograde is falling we are most defiantly affected one way or another, this is why this moon should be greatly appreciated.

During the Sagittarius moon- It’s time nurture others by making sure everyone is happy.  It is also a time of being motherly and often this type of energy makes sure that a motherly figure will be a joy to ones life.  Speaking honestly and straight to the point may be harsh but it so real.  But this moon also signifies taking responsibility in areas of family and those whom you love.  Which could mean spending more time with the ones you love, but how will you do that when you also may become very busy working? This moon is quite social able but having to tear your self between family, friends and obligation may cause you to be eccentric and rebellious. Careful of your words and be gentle the new moon will be a very calming affect.  Perhaps take a trip by the ocean or the sea or read a book instead of stretching your self too thin and make sure you take time for your self.

The Moon in Sagittarius brings a time of exciting activity looking for and wanting excitement which is spur-of-the-moment. People may feel more bold, sociable, and entertaining and affectionate. It is a good time for exploring happiness and dreams and for increase the mind. Like the Archer that represents Sagittarius, people may have an preference toward seeking out legitimacy and higher connotation and following sixth sense, as well as journey of conjure. While the desire for independence will be strong, people may want to do what they want, when they want, and be impetuous and sovereign. These inclinations can cause agitation and a strong need for freedom.

Moon in Sagittarius is very sincere with her way of thinking. She is intelligent and theoretical in disturbing situations. She treats others with reverence, compassion and a sense of funniness. She believes in telling it like it is, even if the truth hurts. Sagittarius Moon needs for others to be truthful with her as well. She is deeply offended by dishonesty. She has a talent for coaching others, and is an enthusiastic apprentice. Every touching challenge is an opportunity for her to study, and to help others with the knowledge she has gained.

Since, moon in Sagittarius is sincere, clear-cut, vigorous, confident, and intelligent and then some we must remain impartial. It is my suggestion that you purchase an Orange candle and carve your name through the wick.  Anoint the candle with sandalwood or Lavender oil and chant the psalm 17.  You may also choose to recite a mantra every morning until the next moon cycle. Remember that with all applications of psalms and mantras achieving the desired result is depended upon the quality of intention, and when it comes to finding satisfying interaction, it is of the greatest importance to begin with a clear understanding of what your goal should be. The mantras can be hard to pronounce for many but it is a powerful source of energy the mantra for Sagittarius moon is

“Om Gurave Nahmaha”

(Om Goo rah vey Nahm ah ha)

This mantra begins to awaken and activate the entire charka. It specifically prepares the charka to e able to handle the inflow of Jupiter energy that give charka is power.

With every moon rotation, remember to cross out the old affirmation even if there is a slightest change and create new ones. The perfect number for aspiration is 10.  This means to list 10 aspirations and recite them every night until the next moon cycle.  Remember never make the affirmations beginning with “I want”, it must be worded “I need to be guided..”

Please remember I am not an Astrologer nor do I claim to be, however consolation of sun and moon placement acts as a utility to gain prospective of the future of Vedic transformative information.  Vedic readings are quite unusual in many prospective and not be confused with a Vedic Astrology.  Vedic readings are specific to the future in with in a 90 day period of time.  Since the ideology prefers that how can one change the future when we are not accepting of the present as well as having the need to change today to better tomorrow since we can not change the past.  Vedic reading focuses on actions and reactions since each element is ego driven to emphasize harmony or destruction.

December is going to be very busy month also here at cosmic psychic.   Not only will there be a scheduled show on possibility 17th of December but I might be opening another slot for 21st of December to schedule a 1 hour show during the lunar eclipse.  I am also taking appointments for 6 months in-depth reading at a reduced price to all those who have joined my mailing list.  If you have not joined it may be wise for you to do so at this time.  And always there will be a weekend of free destiny readings.  Watch your emails for newsletters and events.
