I have exciting news!  Harper Collins bought my first astrology book! It will come out Sept 13, 2016. The Harper Collins team is fantastic and I feel very fortunate. They are already getting me out there, as you can see from this July 24th live interview on the San Diego Living show.  Let me know what you think!

News Flash!  In case you haven’t noticed, this Mercury Retrograde period seems more pesky than usual. That is because Mercury Retrograde is doing a somewhat bothersome dance routine with Mars opposite Uranus. I heard a great quote about awkward dancing:  “A vertical frustration born to a horizontal desire.”  When you take the planet of aggressive energy (Mars), and put it against the planet of unexpected events (Uranus), it feels like two opposing forces fighting to take the lead. Think of this Mars/Uranus opposition as if you are the guy on the back of this unusual bicycle.   And the Mercury Retrograde adds to this feeling of going in reverse. Just hold onto your handlebars. Try to enjoy the scenery, because you don’t have that much control. Fortunately, with Mercury Retrograde it is usually just annoying delays and communication problems. It’s all over when we get to July.  Let me know if this Mercury Retrograde feels more intense for you!

I have had some requests from clients regarding what I REALLY think about Mercury retrograde periods. Several times a year, the planet Mercury appears to be going backwards. The key word here is “appears”.  We are in one of those times right now.  It started on Oct 21 and ends on Nov 10th. When folks talk about how everything goes wrong during a Mercury retrograde period, they are somewhat correct.  Think about what happens when you walk backwards.  It’s healthy to move the muscles in new ways, and by walking backwards you get a new viewpoint.  This isn’t a negative thing.  But you might bump into something, if you are not looking over your shoulder.  So my advice, during Mercury retrograde is to be extra on guard.   Be alert and make sure everything is as right as it can be.  Some of us were born during a Mercury retrograde period.  I am one of those people. During these times, it’s as if I am finally moving with the crowd….in a backward sort of way.  So things actually work out for me, since I am going with the overall flow.  As soon as it goes direct, I actually feel the way most of the world does when it is retrograde.   I think I am so used to this energetic reversal, that I don’t really worry about it one way or another. However for those of you born during a Mercury direct (going forward) period, you might feel these retrograde times in a more pointed way.  Hope this makes sense!  Let me know what your experiences have been!  The only way to understand Astrology is by personally experiencing it.
