Astrology is an ancient language that provides the capacity to see the wisdom and depth of the ages in each moment. It is a means to understand the nature and the cycles of the human experience. It is part teacher, part guide and part comedian. I've created 'Mercury Speaks' in the hope that this information may inspire you to find and hone your own very special lights. As we all need to find ways to be more loving, may we discover the art of living and what it means to truly be.

5th New Moon In Virgo at 4:36 am
4:36 am PDT - September 5, New Moon in Virgo at 13 degrees 04 minute. This is a time for recognizing patterns and knowing the interrelatedness of the wholeality. Change is the essence of Perfection. We change to become more ourselves. Love as a way of doing, is loving what you do. What isn’t sacred? It is all sacred; it is all for naught. It is what it is, no matter what you think. There is only one place to be, and that is to be.
Love being who you are!
4:13 pm PDT - September 19, Full Moon in Pisces at 26 degrees 40 min. To listen to the inner silence is the clearest way to Divinity at one’s deepest core. If there is no outside, nor inside, then what, who, and where is One? To be in one place is to be everywhere. To be everywhere is to be in one place. There is only one place to be and that is where you are. We are swimming with a sea of magic as the world is overwhelmed with ignorance.
The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac
(Both your Sun and Ascendant are Significant)
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) Happy Birthday! After 13.8 billion years, you show up on earth, and here you are! Wow, I think that is amazing, that you find yourself here after all that time from the big bang! You are a miracle and a mystery in the making. If you knew you could have whatever you want, and be whoever you want to be, then what would you be doing? It is not necessary to come up with an answer right away, but it's something you may want to consider. You're learning how to communicate in a different way and it could be more complex, but it can be more satisfying. Forms of transformation can come suddenly and unexpectedly. Balance is always an outcome of strength, and often they come together.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) Some of you may be starting a new relationship this summer, and others are finding their current relationship may be having difficulties. The next several years could be a time of caution when it comes to financial decisions; this would be the prudent approach when Saturn moves through the Second House of money, property, and resources. Some of you may have moved this year or you're planning on relocating to a new house or state. Expanding your vocation could be an excellent adventure. You'll receive great insights from a friend or a new acquaintance. Find balance and you will have the strength that will see you through any circumstance. A new point of view can help make you see that the present is the only place to be.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) You are starting a new cycle for the next 14 years. Keep to the simple for the best results. Learning to listen with an open heart and a quiet mind will open up your inner wisdom. Opportunities are going to be available for your consideration. You may find your health in question as Uranus moves through the Sixth House of health and work. The next few years you are going to be recognized by others for your efforts. You find yourself looking deep within to your essence. Work will be hard and rewarding for those who have the inclination to grow. Someone from the past may appear, and you are reminded of who you are and who you used to be. A friend will bring you a surprise that you didn't expect.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) In the coming years, you will either have a great windfall, or you will lose everything. If you're One with everything, then afterwards you will have everything that belongs to you. If you lose your connection with your divine nature, then there is nothing worth having. The most valuable thing you'll ever own is what you do and nothing more. Things come and go, but your life is sacred and a loving life is the eternal expression of what you are, what you have been, and what you do now. The past will make itself known and all you have to do is be true to yourself, as there is no one else to be. Traveling is a good way for you to keep in touch with your nature.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) Relationships are going to be expanded across the horizon. Jupiter's in your Seventh House of relationships and this always expands your casual and intimate connections. Furthermore, Jupiter in Cancer speaks for the idea of nurturing your nature naturally, to naturally reveal your essence. Relationships are limiting, and that's what makes them work. For a moment, look beyond the limits that you place on yourself and allow yourself to expand your limitations. You and no one else should determine your limits! Don't give away the most precious gift you have, and that is your responsibility for feeling the way you do at any given time. An encounter along one of your long journeys can excite the soul, warm the heart, and provide the hope you are looking for. To be one with your silence is to be one with creation, which is Divine.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) The area of work and health will benefit you the most for the time being. The past can bring forth wisdom that can be informative and provide you with information that can be useful for your awareness. You will be recognized in the next few years for your work efforts that you have already demonstrated in the past. The nature of your work may change, and you find yourself enjoying every day with each actively as it brings you closer to who you are. Insights from some unlikely places can bring you into a new mental and spiritual space compared to the rest of the year. This month, dreams can be helpful for guiding you to a better understanding in what you attempt to do. Changes this year reach toward the future.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20) Currently your intuition is strong and clear,and it would be wise for you to listen and follow the inner dialogue of your spirit. Romance should be quite exciting and fun, and if you're single this could be an opportunity to meet someone who could become significant. If you're in a relationship this is a wonderful time for growth. Education and travel are also on your agenda for this month. Education isn't just acquiring a degree, sometimes it's taking a class or seminar or learning simply for the sake of learning. Often if the nature of a Pisces individual is confused or is not clear about something happening to his or her life, they will play the victim. This would be unwise for it is a pattern, that you must start to recognize and end.
ARIES (Mar. 21-April 19) This is a year for the unexpected, especially the next two years for those are ready for the fate that awaits them. Taking care of your physical body is equal to taking care of your spiritual essence. Transformation is constantly in play and is always an important part of everybody's life. These two next years are going to change your life more-so than ever before. Keep to the simple, for the complex is bound to arrive. Many of you will be recognized for your abilities, especially for the past few years of your efforts. Your intuition is strong so it is important to listen with your heart. If you're single, then you may meet somebody who will catch your fancy. Romance is certainly on the menu, and this could be a fun and meaningful liaison.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Blogging, writing, and communication are many areas that demand your attention. No matter what relationships you are involved in at this time, you will find this to be a trying time. You may find that education in one manner or another is going to affect your life in the next few years. Keep to the simple and allow flexibility to the main stay for smoother sailing in the unknown waters that are bound to arrive in any life. It may seem that some friends may not be so friendly, and those who are not so familiar maybe your support system. Fortune smiles on your House of money, property and resources. You are in a creative period for the rest of this year so make the best of it for inspiration.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Fortune smiles on your House, and if you are able to listen with your heart and not equivocate with doubt, then support from a friend can elevate you to a new position. Health and work are two areas that are challenging, but with Jupiter in your Second House, this provides a conscious awakening that is important for your growth. If you're looking for work, you find it with effort. Transformation is also a major theme that will be occurring throughout the next several years. Some of you may find that you are in a position where you have to make a choice between the past or the future, and all you have to do is listen and choose. Don't think twice, it's right for your present.
CANCER (June 22-July 22) New beginnings come in surprising packages, especially in the field of relationship, romance, and personal interests. This is a year for fresh beginnings and solving some old patterns with fresh solutions. Relationships are changing, and that is first step for personal growth. Vocational interest can have an important imprint concerning your direction. Keep to the simple, and let the joy of doing create a happy way of living. Live for a living, and consider the idea of not 7working for a living. What would you do now, if you could be doing whatever you wished to be doing in the present? If it is not what you are doing on a daily basis, then maybe you'll want to think upon it. Life is the greatest gift you have-embrace it and love it with the same passion of doing what you love to do.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) The planet Mars is in your sign of Leo and you're going to be having a wonderful month ahead. However, you will want to consider finding balance between the pursuit of too much pleasure and not sufficient work. Conversely how much work verses how much fun? You may visit someone at a hospital who needs your attention due to illness. Also, you should be aware of your own health and if you feel something is not quite right, make sure you follow-up with a checkup. A sudden trip or the decision to go back to school could surprise you. Change is in the air and you're ripe for change. Some of you may have already moved or you are considering changing locations for where you live.
