Happy Valentines Day
What is this? Mercury
the planet is going Retrograde on February 13th 2007!
Yes! That is what I wrote and it will be retrograde for three weeks and
end on March 7th 2007.
Please take time to read through this newsletter. I have made a list of
what you can do to ease the stress of this time when Mercury Retrograde
is in your sun sign and the dates it will be there, at the end of this
I have put together
a list of things to do and not to do when Mercury is retrograde. I have
been studying the effects of Mercury retrograde for many years and what
I know for sure is that it will and does affect all of us in some way.
Do clean out your
closet and clear the clutter during this time.
Do finish up old projects and things you have started in this time period.
Do stay focused and balanced meditate and let your higher self guide you.
Tune in and ask what
is best for me? What will happen if I do ______?
You will receive your answers if you listen to your body and how it feels.
If you have planned a trip or vacation and will be leaving during the
retrograde know that delays can happen and just prepare for it. If driving,
make sure your car is in good running order and be a little more cautious
during this time. If flying be sure to ask your Angels to protect you
and know there may be a change in flight plans.
Do not sign important
papers during a retrograde including loans, leases or business agreements.
Do not buy that new car during the retrograde including any motorized
vehicle or you may not be happy with it after Mercury goes direct.
Do not argue with anyone, let anger flow through you.
Cell phones, computers, vacuums, dishwashers and washing machines the
list is endless can all go on the blink at this time.
Things seem to break down during this time so if all possible wait till
the retrograde is over to go out and buy a new one.
Did you know that
you may feel the affects of Mercury going retrograde up to two weeks ahead
of the date it goes retrograde?
In fact I sat down
to write a newsletter last week and I turned on my laptop to get started,
to my surprise and bewilderment the computer wouldn't start up. I called
to Robert and showed him what was happening. He is pretty smart when it
comes to computers and I figured he would get it working for me. There
was hope that he could get the information off the hard drive and save
it for me. In the mean time I thought positively and figured that if it
didn't work out I would just have to start over. Then I got the bad news
the hard drive was fried there was no way I was going to have any of the
writings I have done back. I had two books in the works on the computer
and I hadn't backed them up. I also lost plenty of writings and some of
my coaching outlines. The good thing is that I had sent a good friend
a copy of my little book of magic by email so she could tell me her thoughts
on it. I am so happy I will be able to get it back. I thought to myself
this must be the start of the Mercury Retrograde and I should have practiced
what I preach every Mercury Retrograde. BACK UP YOUR COMPUTER! Now! You
can bet I will make it a ritual to do this more often.
Throughout this experience I didn't feel upset or worried. I was at peace
with the fact that I would have to start over and that I would have to
begin my book again.
The night before the hard drive fried, I asked the universe what I could
do to bring in the financial success I desire. I soon received the message
or thought in my mind that I was to finish my book and find out how to
turn it into an e-book. I was all fired up to accomplish the finishing
of this book. Now as I am thinking about this experience. I know there
are reasons for everything and I feel it must be time to start fresh and
to let go of any worry why it happened. The reason I feel so at peace
with this is because I have found that letting the negative thoughts and
feelings flow through me and not allowing them to get stuck is so much
easier that being frustrated and worried over something I do not control
