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.

May 9 - 10 at 5:29 p.m. PDT - New Moon Taurus Solar Eclipse. By letting go of the past one becomes present in the ephemeral flow of energy. Free will imply's one to be unencumbered. Think of light as space and space as the face of creation. When one is one with one, there is know more. Letting go of the past is letting go of your opinions concerning the past. Memories are not accurate. Let go of thinking of that is not relevant. Let us honor the earth and awaken to a quality of life that restores nature as our partner for living life.
May 24 at 9:26 P.M. PDT - Full Moon Sagittarius Lunar Eclipse. Many astrologers considered this as one of the most powerful Full Moon's of this year. By changing you're consciousness you will change your life. We try diets, gimmicks, tricks to be happy and to be fulfilled. There is only one thing to do in life, and that is to be yourself. It is the shortest or longest distance to one's awareness. This month, intuition is strong because of movements concerning electrical forces in the atmosphere. This force is made active by the influence of Neptune, the Sun, Moon and Mars that are broadcasting, and all you have to do is tune out and tune in.
The Twelve Signs of the Zodiac
(Both your Sun and Ascendant are Significant)
TAURUS (April 20-May 20) Make the most of the possibilities that are presented. If you are in a relationship, you are fulfilling one of the purposes in your life at this time. The people closest to you are contributing to your personal health. You may find yourself planning a search for new work or changing your employment status; to be successful, stay open to making the important adjustments that this may entail. Amidst the flux of work and money, put aside quality time to spend with the one you love. A new Moon gives you an opportunity to start afresh, especially with the relationships in your life. As an exit occurs, a door opens with new possibilities. Sometimes the most unlikely person or situation can bring the greatest joy and pleasure when you least expect it. With the Sun, Mars, and Mercury in your sign, you can sow the seeds of a new awakening for future flowering. What you are is what you have been, and what you will become is determined by what you do now!
GEMINI (May 21-June 21) Your emotions become more sensitive and unpredictable as the month unfolds. Be patient, and in due course you will reap the rewards of insightful observations. Without judgment, honesty will help you find the balance that you seek and the path of least resistance. You are heading in the right direction at the right time, and information about the purpose of your life will be revealed to you. Romance is in the wings for those who are single. The Full Moon sets the tone for some time. You will be right on target if you listen to your heart and follow your intuition. Stop equivocating with yourself and just do it! Trust yourself and stop questioning your inner voice. How can anyone trust you if you won? Trust your own essence? You are on the verge of uncovering information that will reveal itself in the next few months. Balance is a good approach if you want this to be a productive month. For inner awareness, find the time to be quiet and contemplative.
CANCER (June 22-July 22) Your emotions are riding high and low, so be ready for the roller coaster ride ahead. Pay attention to your personal needs, stay open to spending time alone, and avoid confrontational people. You experience an insightful boomerang-like moment that will be rich with meaning. But just when you thought you had rid yourself of old and useless habits, they reappear and try to pull you back in. Stay focused and alert to avoid any potential problems, and learn the lessons that come your way. If you look back at this time, you will realize that all that has happened to you has greatly contributed to your personal growth. You are starting to see yourself in a new light; and with a new sense of direction, you can begin to develop a life that has all that you want and desire. Conversely, if you surrender to what life provides you, and let go of what you desire, perhaps you will receive that which is more in keeping with what you need. Saturn in Scorpio is in your Fifth House of romance and passion is just a kiss away if you are open and willing for the next few years.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) Your words are powerful, so take care to fit the action to the word and the word to the action. Being in tune with the universe will facilitate your search for purpose in your life. You have a wonderful way of making people smile, and you can be the life of the party, so share your warmth. This is an ideal time to enjoy the peace of mind that is part of this month's lesson. You are finding your way by letting the mystery of life assist you to your destiny. Work should go smoothly for you, but if not, why not? Keep to the simple as you look for long-term prospects that will facilitate your further development. Don't force friends or acquaintances to do what they don't want to do. It is in your best interest to get better organized by spring-cleaning your house and any area of your life that could use a revamping. Just like a garden, you need to cultivate and nurture so that future blossoming can occur. Let the miracle of life show you the way to a fuller and more meaningful way of living your life.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You have so much to give and you give it freely. People know this about you and are appreciative of how supportive you are of others. You feel good about who you are and it shows! You're starting to get back in the groove, but you need to show patience toward yourself. Be aware that a power struggle with someone may result in an anger and frustration that could erupt within the next few months. Whatever happens, don't take it personally, as it is most likely about the person who is causing the upset! Know this and be happy! What do you want? What do you really want? What will make you happy? It is so amazing that very few people ever ask themselves what they want in life; and is what they want what they need? You're the best at giving to others, but it is now time to give to yourself. If you presume, you will not be open to authentic knowing! You still need to learn that there is value in not taking everything so personally. Your plate is full; work your way through accordingly! Someone cares and loves you from a distance. It is good to be loved, even at a distance.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23) This is a time to slow down, to regroup, and to carefully contemplate decisions about your future. You're the perfect partner when you allow others to be who they are as you pay more attention to your own needs. If you are aware and observant, you can see the light of your heart and the way of being in the reflection of your partner's eyes. This is a year that will bring you many of the more pleasant aspects that life has to offer; this will help you to recognize the wondrous gift that your life is! And to make things even better, marriage is on the horizon for some. It is a time for healing and for making your feelings known! You are in the mood for straightforward information; keep it simple and you will discover the sublime. You may find that work will provide valuable insights. With patience, you will become aware of a new way of being, a way that is nothing more than the way you used to be. Sweet thoughts come easy, but if the timing is not right, the words cannot truly express what is in your heart.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21) If you are upset with someone, look to yourself for the answers. You are most efficient and productive when you are working on a project that you enjoy. Thus, if you are not happy with your job, make whatever adjustments necessary to give you that sense of belonging. After all, satisfying work is very important to your well-being. You will hear from someone who has been somewhat elusive recently, and it is just a matter of time before you realize that you are being admired by someone from a distance. Lighten up on concerns that may appear. There is a grab bag of possibilities for what will happen this month, and anyone can make you feel the way you want to feel. Who knows? And that is part of the magic. To not know is where the fun is! Express yourself as you are, and learn to be more of who you are. If you can organize the many disparate segments of your life, you can then get back to your music and dreams. You are the mystery, so lovingly unravel the wonder that is yours to be had.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You are going through a cosmic checkup concerning your philosophy of life and the way you are living. Although you are ready to travel and want to get out and about, you have too many commitments to do so at this time. Be patient with your new relationship, and let it blossom slowly as does a garden in spring. If you are single then you may meet someone sooner than you think. People have a tendency to not be in the moment; yet this is where everything happens and where the mystery of life supports you. So open yourself to awareness of now and let it be your guide! Your life will take a new and unusual direction. Keep an open mind as you discover different ways of doing things and as you learn to see people from other points of view. You have been slowly evolving, changing from the top of your head to the bottom of your toes. You are becoming an amazing butterfly as you move closer to your way of being! Pluto is giving you a up-close lesson in rebirth! Think of life as a continuous birth that is sustained by support and love.
CAPRICORN (DEC. 22-JAN. 19) You are in the best frame of mind when you are helping those you care for; and if you are in a relationship, don't be surprised when you realize that this just might be exactly what you need to learn about. Lessons comes when you least expect them. If you are single, enjoy this time and use it to catch up on other aspects of your life that you have paid little attention to lately. And in so doing, you can learn much about yourself. Consider this a time for starting over and beginning anew, and not as just another way of doing the same old thing. You can repeat the old and tired story, or you can move into a better way of being. Let go of old patterns and begin the process of freedom that expresses itself in the present. Let life show you the path, and don't run from your growth toward understanding. Take comfort in the fact that the worst is now behind you, and yet major changes are still in store. The changes that will arrive are necessary for you to find out why you are alive.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) When unexpected problems pop-up, you have no choice but to go with the flow. If life seems to always throw you lemons, then lay low for a time until the sweet lemonade starts to flow from the residue of your bitter and experiences. A new beginning awaits you. Be open to making the money that will allow you to buy the "tools" you need to fulfill your passion. You are starting to find your proper place in life, and just in time. But be patient, as there is so much more! Don't lose sight of your dreams; just be patient, and they will arrive. It is time for contemplation, and for testing the cracking of the ice. Go where you are supported and be ready for an unexpected encounter of the romantic kind. If you are attentive to your ideas, you'll know what to do. Follow your heart by listening to how the world is guiding you. You have been presented with opportunities, and now is the time to recognize this in your life. There will always be people who misunderstand you, but do not be greatly concerned; all you can do is to be yourself.
PISCES (Feb. 19-Mar. 20) You are more in touch with the invisible world than you may realize! Be strong, and know that you will regret it if you play the victim. This is fast becoming a bad habit, and it needs to be broken immediately. Hidden information will be revealed, and you will be surprised at what it is. Don't overreact to a situation that you have no control over, or you will need to apologize later for your action or words. Stay balanced by keeping yourself busy. You may want to consider creating quality time for yourself. This is a good month to get as much work done as possible. If you make an important decision by listening to your instincts, then your world and dreams will be aligned. By paying attention, you can create what you desire; you can have what you want when your intent is focused. Love is your life. Choose carefully because you just may get what you want! Life is about doing and it is your choice to live the way you do! Neptune in your sign gives you a wonderful opportunity to listen to your spiritual nature.
ARIES (Mar. 21-April 19) Stay focused on what is important; this will keep your emotions in proper proportion. By listening to your heart and inner voice, you will benefit more than you can know. Your attitude has much to do with your judgments about your perceptions. Instead of judging, therefore, try not to over-think about thinking; you will become so in-tune with what you need that you'll wonder why you waited so long not to think. If you can experience life as the gift that it is, then you will be wealthier, healthier, and wiser, as life unfolds right before your eyes! It is all happening at once: when it rains it pours, and there is never a dull moment when it comes to the way you live your life. Relationships are the main focus for the month, but think twice before you utter a sound, as you may come to regret words errantly express ed. Work will be a good distraction. Be aware that drinking and driving will bring you headaches that you really don't want. Proceed carefully for the next several months, and consider focusing on changes that will help you to find a solid path.
