April Fool’s Day Mercury Retrograde 2024

April Fool’s Day Mercury Retrograde

Mercury retrograde has a bad rep, but this one from today,  April 1st , 2024 until the 25th , might have you experiencing accidental happenings and synergies that turn out to be lucky.  You can do something now, perhaps, that things haven’t lined up to make possible, before now. Whatever is gained now if it agrees with your nature, can stabilize quickly.

Wednesday April 3rd in the morning sports a perfect environment for wishing big, wishing deep, and allowing your heart and its desires speak to  you.  Empty your mind of other peoples’ business, and let your inner self have the floor…maybe on a walk or a meditation or a mini-vision quest – one previous message about Spring 2024 is that it was psychologically healthy to be occupied with your own well-being now. A good thing to attend to on this day!

A New Source of Guidance and Full Moon Horoscopes

Seal Stone

A New Source of Spiritual Guidance

I am pleased to introduce a new way of getting helpful messages from spirit! If the guidance for your fire, water, air, and earth signs does not seem relevant, please let me know in the comments, as this new system like all attempts at communication, is an experiment.

It came about on the full moon in Virgo this past weekend. Mercury is the ruler of Virgo, the messenger from the gods to man, and a fortuitous time for the birth of a divination system.  It’s made of five objects with symbolic significance, including the playful seal stone from the Pacific Northwest, pictured above.

As soon as I did a little ritual outdoors to activate them, they were ready to deliver, and this is what I got for each element as guidance relevant to the full moon cycle, for instance, “What is healing now for the earth signs?” February 24th-March 10th.

(For readers interested in the art of divination, messages came from doing two different things. First, by simply holding them all together while focused on one of the elements, i.e. the Air signs. Then, making a design with them with the intention of getting a message from spirit for the Air signs.)

Messages From The Five 

Aries, Leo, Sagittarius, Fire signs:  Let other people help you. This is how you can make good progress. Be kind in dealing with others, but explicit about what you need from them. You’re supposed to consider yourself strong and not so in need, but getting ready to offer. Act more and play more, it helps you be more creative. Money and money-making prospects look solid. Something new is developing and so it can feel like there’s a gap in your life, waiting to be filled. Wait ‘til August!

Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces, Water signs:  You’re unusually intuitive and in tune with your personal journey and how to make personally-important progress. Insight deepens. Dreams could be extra interesting, making it a fruitful time to keep a dream journal.   There’s something being shed now, as if you’re getting ready for an inner revolution. On the outside, life can feel quite “as usual”; it’s fine to lay low… and although nothing is different, everything is fine.

Gemini, Libra, Aquarius, Air signs: In the process of getting the Air messages, I got apprehended by the landowner whose ground I was sitting on,  and reminded I was breaking the law.  Anything that happens in the space of a divination process counts as part of it, and the message for air signs is that they have to deal with the consequences of their actions in some way. The world reacts to them. This absolutely does not mean you will experience something negative (think Gemini Donald Trump!). You could clearly see the positive consequences of your actions. Also, you’ll get important news, you’ll make discoveries …it’s a rather decisive time. However according to two objects left out and because the path is still ambiguous, it’s best to spend this time taking care of your health,  and any money issues if you have them. You might find ways to make more money.  Don’t expect to be rah-rah about life. Feel good about what you can do right now, that is all that’s required for future success.

Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn, Earth signs: What to look forward to: knowing the fullness of things, and feeling in general more emotionally fulfilled. What looks important to take care of are all kinds of material world improvements. This is a time to work : to  gain strength and be make yourself healthier and better organized. It’s not a time to initiate new things, it’s not a time to goof off, it’s a time work on your own behalf.
