The Quest-Mercury Retrograde




The Quest – Mercury Retrograde and the Solar Eclipse

October 4 ~October 23 2014



 This September- October 2014, you might feel like you are in a re-run of last fall 2013.  Mercury retrogrades introduce a theme or a new idea. It comes as a thought that might keep popping up into our minds.  I take them as  important assignments when I notice a new notion to do something, or learn something, or take care of something. This fall 2014, Mercury retrograde is moving into a similar position in Scorpio as it was last Fall 2013, especially when it came out of retrograde and went direct at 2* Scorpio….it is a variation of last years’ assignment or theme.

I would like to name this theme of Fall 2014 the Quest.

It is times like these when we need assistance or a little reminder here and there, why we are here. So, I’m here to remind you, that you have a quest to walk, and it could be “the big one”  or it could be several smaller ones that are congruent with your one theme in this life.  It is your one desire you want to experience at this time.  I hope this article gets you inspired once again to get in touch with that memory vividly, and bring it out again into the fresh air. Lets’ shake it out and bring it to life!  For many, this theme, and last fall’s theme had to do with taking care of ourselves in a way that removes compromises.  Any events or circumstances which diminish our value, our worth and standard in one way or another, needs to be changed. For some, it looks like a cutting off of situations, which was what happened last fall 2013.  Some it is a deeper negotiation or agreement that will be made in order to protect one’s standards and value of a way of life, but in a more gentler supportive manner.

That is what is happening this fall 2014. Both requires Scorpio Vision of who you are, where you are going, and why you want it.


Last years’ theme was moving towards this vision restored, however, It was also ridden with frustration, difficulty with work, people, circumstances, health or close relationship set backs. It wasn’t easy. Much of the hardship was coming from Saturn’s conjunction to Mercury and the Solar Eclipse ( the Mercury Retrograde last year, was October 21, at 18* Scorpio, then went direct at 2* Scorpio November 10, 2013. Saturn conjoined Mercury. Saturn conjoin the Solar Eclipse November 3 at 11* Scorpio conjoin Saturn at 11* Scorpio. )

By the time the Solar Eclipse came November 3 2013 in the same zodiac sign of Scorpio as we are having this fall 2014,  we were deep into our new decision, our new path we had taken and we were beginning to walk it, not just think it. It was a Shift. An Epiphany. It was a new step and not an easy one because for many, it meant making a difficult decision to proceed with your life.

Emerging from that hard cycle now brings us to sort of a seasoned knighthood where it is clearly understood, what becomes of our life, is up to us, what becomes of your nation is up to us, what becomes of our Earth, is truly only up to us. Harsh lessons in 2014 I must say. If there was ever a time to master Scorpio Vision and Powers from above, pouring down daily into our magical world, it is right now. The Quest may involve many pieces or steps. Pieces that blend into each other, and sometimes must be dealt with separately. Invoke vision.
The light of the body is the eye: “If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.” Mathew 6:22.  Single eyed one pointed clarity on your immediate goal is crucial.  We can also call for purity in our vision.

Both events, with Saturn involved, last year, made it seem severe.  During the period of October/November 2013, many experienced an epiphany or shift and an accountability to uphold a promise to use every urge of strength and love within ones’ being rushed up to our awareness, and a new being was born.  It was suppose to shake us into surrendering the old pattern and to free up congested energy to pour into your quest.

So, the decision created a shield for you. The shields were necessary in order to battle the Dragons. Trust in this shield, regardless of everything that has transpired since fall 2013  Scorpio is demanding. It required a surrendering of some old self and the new emerged, with shields so you could move forward and succeed, but that step was just step one.

How I see it is that we have advanced into higher training. The Dragons desired to destroy your vision as soon as you discovered your shift. Within your interior vision is your reason you are here. If they take your vision, you perish. If they destroy your vision, you are ever so less effective. If there have been obstacles, set backs, mistakes during this accelerated training period, we get to do it again this fall. Only this time, it is going to be with more understanding.

The second chance is for remembering how important the first awakening was, and be stronger with the shields to protect our purpose. Many experienced a realization of their total  accountability for what they have allowed, or created, and what they have not yet accomplished.

  From Fall of 2013 to the present, a new accountability has been embraced,leading a huge step toward becoming a master of your world. It is beyond Maturing, it is adeptship. The very step you have taken to grow and expand has been noted by those who have everything to lose by your growth.  Because once you allow full accountability, they know, soon after, you will figure out how to proceed with an increased determination to get what you want for your personal life and for the planet.  When we quit waiting for others, even subconsciously to provide these “things” for us, and realize no one is coming to just hand it to us, (as the New Moon in Gemini summer 2014 revealed) we then, take charge and discover an ingenuity within that will find a way to make it happen.   This shift into more accountability and ingenuity last fall 2013, lasted a few months, then was manipulated by certain dark factions, knowing we as a large group of people all over the globe, were changing. They noticed.  We were going to muster up the power and courage to lay out the plan and transform our life, thereby, indirectly or directly changing the world, one by one. These forces, whatever you know them as, began to interfere and set us off course a bit, causing this or that false flag drama globally and personally. As of July 2014, when Mars finally left Libra, we shook ourselves off and now we need to get back in our saddle.

Whatever setback seemed to happen to you in 2014 so far, pick yourself back up and remember your original goal, but this time, this fall, add a new layer of enthusiasm to your path, not only because of how darn smart you have become this time, because last time the shift was trusting in that knee jerk impulse and almost had to happen.  It was because of Saturn’s involvement. Saturn contributes a severity to the situaiton. Venus last time was not buffering or softening the situation, but it is, this time.

Venus is contributing an elegant spherical intelligence and refinement to this cycle of pouring energy into your path, your strategy mapping out your Quest. This is such a blessing this time around compared to 1 year ago. More courage, confidence, experience, love, companionship, support and progress.

This fall 2014 Mercury retro theme compels you to not only get in touch again with that conviction you tried to embrace last year which was to protect and value your self with common sense and implement a stronger business, love, relationship, security or financial freedom, but this time, this fall of 2014, do it in a way that might not be with such a sense of urgency or severity tied to it. There is more pragmatic planning and more support from others.

This time, with Venus, you have grown, you are smarter, and the situation seems manageable. Venus is magnetically bringing confidence and acceptance of your mastery back into your life. It is bringing a similar situation back to you but with an alteration to the plan that is better.  It is to perfect the idea, the project, the business, design, etc…and to do it with strength, conviction, but more coming from deep love, and so much surety.


You are doing it with the awareness of loving self, loving the project, loving your people, loving others. Believing in the dream and knowing now exactly what you want and what you don’t want.   The barrier which separates the higher dimensions, the heaven world is thinning. This can personally be occurring the same time the world is escalating in its madness. Maybe this is why it is escalating Maybe it’s because we are transcending and we are finally becoming congruent with our inner competence and maturity…and the ones that can not transcend, at least at this epic of time, for whatever reason, are not responding with much grace.

With your vision restored you have millions just like you saying NO to the insanity they want to unleashed. You are the one, one by one by one. Reach up and call down this Vision. Call it down, pray for it. It is everything, and that is exactly what Mercury needs you to do now. The Solar Eclipse in October 23 for 5 months will take over and guide you magnetically into action, to strategize for you steps that will rapidly transform yourself, our countries, villages and the world.

You will have 5 months to practice this new courage and standard of being in so many new ways of thinking. It is a new attitude. The bar of living has been raised, it’s happening right now!

The Scorpio theme brings us a deeper vision. Are you finding yourself becoming impatient sometimes throughout your day, because you expect more from yourself in a 10-13 hour period?  Some are experience this, and others who have lived this way all their lives, are moving towards an internal patience.

Now, this fall of 2014, you somehow have the inner love for your soul, your inner will and vision to do it, to try it again… you realize this is going to take a lot of work, but guess what?? You are so worth it! Your dream is worth it. Your special person is so worth it. It is as if time and space are also suspended when you are locked into this creative process, and it doesn’t matter how long it is going to take, it must be done beautifully, perfectly, with great contemplation infused into it. It doesn’t matter what it is.  Art?  Music?  A business structure?  A love?  Your happiness is worth it. You are reclaiming your QUEST, your Purpose, your Mission that is so beautiful, you want to give it the biggest chance you have ever yet engaged in. You must become obsessed with your Quest!

 In the past, we might have built our dreams with bits of talent, sticks, brush, bricks and rocks here and there, and we made a home, a business, a relationship, a family, but it was partly good karma, partly winging it, partly common sense and talent.

What we are talking about now, is a realization of details that we missed all our lives, that we feel compelled to master and use in our new alchemy of love and courage this time. We are more awake now, and we know more than we did before.

 So, If Scorpio rules Vision, the inner vision, our spiritual imagery mechanism, our Pineal Gland, and the part of our spirit which can conceptualize a thing, this fall throughout 2014,we are going to need help to keep that vision of our QUEST and manifest it!

You are being made new.

Music, Beauty, Love, and the plan


I am a musician, however, I understand some do not care one way or another if they have music in their lives.  I am presenting the concept of Music, waves of magnificent sound, to increase the power of your vision. Playing it often! Have a play list.  Set up your Music Station in your home, car and office. Get the equipment you need. Go online and find your music and download it onto anything and play it for your daily inspiration.

Discover your music-Create a playlist, easy access to your files… have sound in your home, your office and/or car infusing your body and soul with uplifting incredible harmonies. The assistance of musical waves mixed with your vision and emotions to sustain accompany you on your path.

Sound and music opens our heart and infuses us with more inspiration and desire to keep joyously living. Beauty is about caring. Another Green Ray Scorpio visual imagery. Sound, Light, Color, Beauty, dress, order and powerful focuses to gaze upon throughout the day.  Become sensitive to your surroundings, your appearance and the healing Teals, Emeralds, Turquoise  and Aquas. Sound is crucial, and so is sound coming out of your voice!

 Your Higher Self joins you in this Quest.

You are embarking in a vision Quest, and your will is going to merge with this Higher Self that will help bring your quest to fruition. It is right near you in another dimension. Ask it to guide you. Affirmation:

“Beloved God, Beloved God Presence of myself with all your infinite vision, wisdom, and power to release into my world advancement, success, completion and the perfect new way of life, Beloved Higher Self, which can guide me, speak to me, teach me and shift my way of feeling about all things, I ask for you to come into my every day life and bring a richness to my every day living. Move me into that beautiful space of oneness with you. Join me in this Quest for greater love, greater success, greater satisfaction. Join me and guide me to my Holy Grail today, closer and closer each day. I thank you and accept this done , and seal it in Archangel Michael’s name, Amen.”

 Ask for vision and believe you are going to uncover or recover what your Quest is. Ask for your Higher Self to put in your hands the Music that is needed to play in your environment to help you feel the lightness and energy of having a purpose. Ask for the aroma, the Beauty, the photos, the colors you are to begin surrounding yourself with.

 Look at last year as Phase One. Now we enter Phase two. Add the affirmation. Add the music. Add the love. Call for the love to be in your life. Beauty, Call for beauty to be surrounding you. Fragrance, call for the aroma of herbs, frankincense, oils, your favorite spices to fill the air. Music, call for Music to fill your space. These are grand attractors for your journey.

 Write your prayer if you like. It could begin with “Heavenly powers, Precious God Presence, I am your servant and friend. I know you desire me to help you fulfill your highest purpose in this world also. Send me on my journey this day. I am ready and capture this day’s challenge and I know as I conquer through wisdom, through love, and expressing my power with great discernment, millions like me are doing the same and we will transform our lives one by one. We are transforming our beautiful planet. We command Peace. We Demand Prosperity and Safety. I accept this done, Amen.”


Your Quest or Goal is like a Seed. It will grow, I promise you, if you nurture it every day. It takes time to mature like a baby in the womb.  Visualize, affirm, write down and nurture with Love and Feeling, this beautiful seed. You don’t need to know how it is going to happen, you don’t need to know every single detail mapped out. Just plant the seed.

 If you suffer from the negativity that is so permeating everywhere, it is possible, it is not a chemical imbalance. I’m not saying it isn’t, but it is very possible it is not coming from an internal origin.  Drink organic fresh carrot veggie juice.  Get your hormone levels checked by a specialist who could help you feel better if there are any missing, if you are open to going down that road. Take your nutritional supplements and eat enough raw fruits and vegetables. Get outside, walk, go near a body of water or walk in a forest. You need to change your location sometimes to get out from underneath the energy.

What is always popping up in your mind, IS YOUR QUEST.  YOUR PROBLEM IS YOUR REASON FOR BEING HERE.  Your problem on your mind, and how you are going to solve it, is your Quest.

And one more thing before we move on, human beings were created to materialize things in this dimension. Things are, anything that is a result of an ideal held in one’s mind that is positive, beneficial to self and / or others.

If we feel we are not creating, we are unhappy people. It is natural to feel depressed if we are not doing something, anything that is an expression of our individuality, but sometimes, we need help shifting out of the dulldrums.

That is why we need reminders, help, music, affirmations, friends, encouragement.

Opposing force wants to keep you down, and most of the time, it will be invisible. You won’t know it’s happening, because it is in the atmosphere, or coming from the mind of another person or thing, or tv, or something.  It is not natural to not create. If you find you are in this state, do not be frustrated at yourself, know it is just what is happening here at this time and we need the shields, and the weapons to counteract it.

Saturn in Sagittarius- December 2014

Because Saturn is swiftly moving into the Sign of Sagittarius on December 2014 for 2 1/2 years. It will bring you the structure and routine, discipline and repetitious duties that are all geared towards bringing the Christ the Higher Standard into your life, but with excitement and fire, joy and enthusiasm your vision, your Quest to fulfill this dream will come alive. For many of us a wonderful accomplishment has been achieved when Saturn finishes its movement through the Sign of Sagittarius, which will be December 2017. For many of us, that isn’t too far away of a goal end date, for what we might have in mind to accomplish, what do you think? Better get on your horse!



Sagittarius rules the adventure, the standard bearer, the athlete, the knight on the horse, the life coach, the wayshower, the astronaut, the traveler. Saturn in Sagittarius  is helping us advance our lives by actually engaging in the adventure. These are real energies, waves of a particular influences coming to you now from these planetary cycles.

Here are examples of someone’s Quest. Understand, these might not be what you had in mind; they are just examples.

Beginning tomorrow, I’ll be taking a 50 day trip in partnership with the United Nations, supported by the Secretary General’s MDG Advocacy Group. I’ll be posting portraits and stories from the trip on the blog. We’re calling it a ‘World Tour,’ because the trip will span over 25,000 miles and circumnavigate the globe. But since there are only ten countries on the itinerary, it would be rather foolish to claim that these portraits and stories somehow represent ‘the world,’ or humanity as a whole. The point of the trip is not to “say” anything about the world. But rather to visit some faraway places, and listen to as many people as possible.” Go here for more

And another example, I found this video around the same time of writing the article It seemed perfect!

These cycles can assist you on your adventure.  ( Remember, look at your life right now as the beginning point, and you are shifting your vision again, only this time, to see your life from now up until December 2017, as a Quest of great significance. Even if it appears to be a mundane life, ( that’s the point!!) it is a quest to see it in a new light of supreme importance. Don’t look for the usual Hollywood dramatic accomplishments and victories you are used to in the movies…look at it as personal etc..accomplishments and each one truly matters!)  The dates below are astrological cycles which could bring empowerment and protection to your tasks.

What do you think your Quest is? Take the time to jot it down on a special paper or notebook and look at it to remind you this is important, each morning or night.
