Mars, our planet of desire, energy, vitality and passion went retrograde Monday, January 23rd, 2012 (Retrograde dates: January 23, 2012 – April 13, 2012). What does this mean for you? Lets explore the energy of Mars.
Mars is our planet of power, strength, courage and aggression. Mars measures our ability to project force, passion and personal will into our lives. A strong Mars is necessary to give us the independence, self-confidence and motivation we need to carry out our unique ideas into the world. On the negative side, Mars can bring out agression, competition, arguments and conflict. On this note, Mars has always been known as the God of War.
Mars is the planetary energy connected to action. Yet, it is not just action for actions sake, it is goal-oriented action. Without Mars, we would just never get anything done. Continue Reading

Three things cannot be long hidden;
The sun, the moon, and the truth.
What is an Eclipse?
An eclipse is an astronomical event that occurs when a planet or a celestial object moves into the shadow of another celestial object. The word “eclipse” has its origin from the ancient Greek word ekleipsis, which means, “I cease to exist,” or “I am absent.” This term is used to describe either a Solar Eclipse (when the Moon’s shadow crosses the Earth’s surface) or a Lunar Eclipse, (the Moon moves into the shadow of the Earth).
In the early days Eclipses were considered a very powerful phenomenon. They were seen as highly threatening and ominous. People were simply terrified of a Solar Eclipse. Can you imagine the “Light of the Sun fading to darkness in the middle of the day” when you did not know what an Eclipse was? Yikes!! Now we are more educated about what is really happening.

The problem with communication…
Is the illusion that it has been accomplished
~George Bernard Shaw
Our fastest moving planet Mercury, is going Retrograde Wednesday, May 6th in the Sign of Gemini until May 30th, 2009. Mercury is our planet associated with communication, everyday mental activity and movement. Mercury goes Retrograde about 3 times a year. It will also move back into the sign of Taurus on May 13th giving us two planetary energies to experience.
A retrograde planet is one that (when viewed from the earth) “appears” to have stopped and is moving backward through the sky. After some time the planet then goes “direct” and is back on it’s normal cyclic path. Every planet retrogrades except the Sun and the Moon. Continue Reading
