one of the ways i like to keep connection with the earth and its cycles is to turn a curious eye to any astrological events that may be occuring and messing with my status quo! i am always intrigued to find out that some strong planetary alignment has possibly (and please note the word possibly!) had an influence on what i may be experiencing that week. hell if we are so effected by the full moon (and accidents and emergencys always report an increase in walk-ins at this time of the month) then surely it is not so far fetched that some of its large bodied cousins may have say in how we are doing too?!

'energy burst'... mixed media on canvas
on december 10th, mischievous mercury goes retrograde messing up our plans, and causing potential setbacks...such a trickster is that mercury!
however the key to dealing with mercury is that it reminds us to loosen up that control part of us when things go awry...it's by learning to deal with the little setbacks that we become more successful at tackling some of life's bigger challenges.
this time mercury will travel thro capricorn, our practical earthy cautious planetary energy. a reminder not to get too carried away by big spending this season, but maybe to step back and offer from your heart instead...make some lil gifts; give your time and a friendly ear to loved ones; have the pleasure of experiences together with those folk you love.
however, if mercury's prankster energy causes appliances to stop working, that letter you were waiting for not showing up, or your train journey being delayed, remember to step back, take a deep breath and smile. can we create that space within where the world can falter a little and its not the end of the world?...unless it is the end of the world of course! but thats a different story altogether!
on a more intriguing note, the 10th will also boost a lil romance in the air, as mercury and venus (planet of love) sparkle and dance in sexy seductive passionate scorpio...turn up that heat and find alternate ways to warm those cockles folk!
