September 2015 - Oracle Card Reading September 1, 2015 12:00 1 Comment
September has always been one of my favorite months. It's often a time when we set new goals for ourselves and start projects that will lead us into the Winter holidays. There is a little spark of excitement in the air as the kids go back to school and the long, warm days of Summer fade into shorter days and cooler nights..
As we start the month of September 2015, we embrace thoughts of Autumn and a season of change. It's a busy time for many and it is easy to burn yourself out. Just because Summer is coming to a close, it doesn't mean that you can't incorporate some of those lazy days of Summer into the Fall. In fact, it's a must! You must make time to give yourself a little TLC. If you get run down, you won't be as productive as you need to be and your energy vibrations will lower, attracting more of the same – negative energy. Self nurture isn't a luxury, it's a necessity and the sooner you embrace that the happier not only you, but everyone around you will be.
As we approach Mercury retrograde this month, it is important that you release old fears, heartache, anger, guilt and all other negative emotions. They won't serve you now and will hinder your ability to move forward. Now is the time to make revisions. Re-decorate, re-organize, re-write...re-negotiate, re-do...take a close look at the projects you have been working on and goals you are trying to accomplish and see where you can make some changes. With a few slight alterations you will start to see things come together in the way that you had hoped.
Mercury will go into retrograde on Sept 17th and will stay there until Oct 9th. Mercury rules communication, clear thinking, truth and travel. When the planet goes retrograde (which in a nutshell means it looks like it's going backwards in the sky), all of those things go backwards as well. It is very important that you communicate clearly during this time and if you are unclear about anything you need to ask for confirmation. It will be very easy to take things out of context so keep that in mind when dealing with other people. You may find travel delays or challenges, misunderstandings and general confusion during this time. Electronics might go a little haywire and you might feel as though you are having a bit of bad luck. Mercury in retrograde however, is nothing to fear. Take everything in stride and know that in a few weeks everything will be back to normal.
It is unwise to start any new projects during retrograde. You will find that things don't go as smoothly as planned and in the end you will have to go back and do extra work. Use this time for planning and just keep things moving along at a steady pace. It will be over before you know it and then you can proceed as usual.
May the month ahead be full of light, love and laughter,
