Mercury in Retrograde – How to Be Productive
by Rubys Readings

Have you noticed your electronics breaking down or glitching out? Are you struggling with misunderstandings or having communication issues with people? Has your Wifi, computer, smartphone, and anything associated with technology been acting strangely? Are you forgetting words and sentences? Are emails and messages online randomly glitching out or disappearing altogether? Then there’s a very good chance you have been experiencing the side effects of “Mercury in Retrograde.”

Mercury is the plant that governs over communication, travel, our thought process, and often electronics. When it’s in a Retrograde cycle or appears to be moving backward, things can go a little haywire here on planet Earth from its influence.

Throughout this post, I will be referring to Mercury in Retrograde as Mercury Rx. Rx is the actual symbol used in Astrology for “Retrograde,” and it helps me shorten this…

Time to Stop Talking by Esther Nelson

I totally agree.

One of my Facebook friends—someone I’m quite fond of—posted the following remarks given by her pastor, Dr. Jim Somerville, First Baptist Church, Richmond, Virginia, to the congregation on July 15, 2018:

It was Thanksgiving 2016, and my brothers and I were headed toward a family reunion of sorts in Franklin, West Virginia, where my mother now lives. Four of us were carpooling together and one of us asked another one of us, ‘Can you please help me understand why you voted for Donald Trump?’ And we all listened. And my brother who was asked the question explained his position in a very clear way, in a very gentle way, in a very loving way, so that his brother could understand his reasons. And when he was finished he said, ‘Maybe you could tell me why you voted for Hillary Clinton?’ And my brother responded in the same gentle, kind, and…

Vikings Invade Heysham

This looks like one hell of a good time!

Sun in Gemini

Every July, for the past few years, the lovely and ancient Lancashire seaside town of Heysham (He-sham) has been invaded by Vikings…

They come in their hundreds, bearing their weapons, tents and tools… and with their families. They sweep in from the ‘sea’ and set up camp on the grassy hollows of the playing fields, where their fires soon fill the summer air with the aroma of meals cooking.

Their children, polite and beautifully dressed, dance around the merry hordes, and strange and magical things happen, like a lady carrying a lost kitten, needing a home…

Some of the things they bring are comically-fearsome; but only because our minds do not know their inner history, written in the ancient legends.

Their elders are wise, regaling all who will listen with stories, history and good humour. But they are ever protective of their own, and their children, in whom they sow…

Speak the Truth about Conflict, Pain, and Suffering: It Is Not All Love and Light by Carol P. Christ

One of my favorite writers.

Nurture life.

Walk in love and beauty.

Trust the knowledge that comes through the body.

Speak the truth about conflict, pain, and suffering.

Take only what you need.

Think about the consequences of your actions for seven generations.

Approach the taking of life with great restraint.

Practice great generosity.

Repair the web

In Rebirth of the Goddess, I offered Nine Touchstones of Goddess Spirituality as an alternative to the Ten Commandments. The Nine Touchstones are intended to inform all our relationships, whether personal, communal, social, or political.

Ours is a broken world. We must speak the truth. Spirituality is not only about “love and light.” Goddess Spirituality, which I often call Goddess feminism, grew out of the feminist movement, which was born in the recognition that all is not well in the world. A central insight of Goddess feminism is that women need the Goddess because when we picture…

Cats Superpowers Protect You From Negative Forces!

Cats have superpowers! Read on …

Cherokee Billie Spiritual Advisor

CAT2

The Secret Power of Cats. Cats may have notoriety due to the various videos on the Internet showing their antics.  However their purpose on this planet is far more than being comical.  Ancient cultures have revered the cat for various reasons.  They saw the energy and power that a cat had and chose to keep that energy near them to protect them from negative forces.  I’m not talking about physical forces as much as spiritual. Cats bear a uniquely powerful aura, also known as an astral force, which works to repel negative energy. In ancient time cats were worshipped as gods. They have never forgotten this.

I never really understood cats until the year 2000.  Growing up I always wanted a cat, but my mother said I was allergic to them.  So I always had dogs and I loved each one of them.  I started drawing the back of the…

Knowing my Voice through Writing by Elise M. Edwards

Finding your voice

elise-edwardsOver the summer, I’ve been writing more than I do during the traditional academic year when other tasks consume the bulk of my workday.  I have spent more time experiencing the joy of creative discovery and production, but I’ve also had more time confronting the difficulties of creative work as I’ve wrestled with some of its unique challenges.  One of those challenges has been to refine my academic writing voice. I’ve approaches the challenge of developing my voice as both a spiritual and feminist practice and this has helped me find confidence in my work.
