Planet Mercury goes retrograde October 4-25 2014. This is when the planet of Mercury appears to be moving backwards around the Sun. Making everything seem more difficult. Difficulties with digital and electronic devices, relationships, communication, travel…
Being a Virgo it feels awful for me. Virgo’s ruling planet is Mercury. Mercury is associated with communication, emotions, intellect, travel, transportation,short trips, air.
I don’t feel like doing anything. When I do, it seems like it doesn’t turn out well.
October Mercury Retrograde began on October 4th 2014. I hit a deer the very next morning on the way to work. *lol* At the time I didn’t know we were in Mercury Retrograde again already. I actually did not look at my witch calendar until a few days later. After thing after thing after thing seemed to be going badly.
The graphic below has an old date on it. Maybe from last year. But it still helps educate us on what is happening during a Mercury Retrograde.
I really like this little graphic. It really made me stop and think today. After I hit that deer. (The 2nd one in four months mind you). I was asking myself what is the Universe telling me? What message am I suppose to be getting from this? Today I saw this Mercury Retrograde graphic.
Reconsider. Repair. Reflect. Reconnect. WELL. That certainly speaks volumes! I didn’t even know what the word retrograde meant. NOW it all makes perfect sense.
I’m on my way to a job that makes me feel down, unappreciated, that they think I’m a machine, a robot, unhuman. Just an object that can not think for itself and just does what its told to do.
Very underpaid for the amount of physical, mental and emotional stress and strain C.N.A.s endure every day. I have not been a very spiritual being lately. I do not feel very connected to nature lately. I am so exhausted I barely feel alive anymore at all! I feel very out of sorts, disconnected, out of balance and unaligned. Hmmm… Retrograde… Reconsider? – Reconsider – where am I going. Is it someplace I want to be going? No.
Repair? What do I need to repair. Myself. My spirit. My wellbeing.
Reflect? What do I reflect on at the end of the day? Is it something positive that happened throughout my day? No. How can I change that? – Reconnect!
Reconnect with a higher spiritual being. Reconnect with nature. Reconnect through meditation and ritual. Reconnect by reading, learning, doing…
To Know, To Will, To Dare, To Keep Secret.
Copied from PaganWiccanAbout.com
The phrase refers to four important reminders about the practice of Wicca. Although the interpretations may vary, in general, you can follow these explanations as beginning guidelines:
To Know refers to the idea that the spiritual journey is one of knowledge -- and that knowledge is never-ending. If we are indeed "to know," then we must constantly be learning, questioning, and expanding our horizons. Also, we must know ourselves before we can know our true paths.
To Dare can be interpreted as to have the courage we need to grow. By daring ourselves to step out of our comfort zone, to be something that people see as "other," we are in fact fulfilling our own need "to dare." We are facing that which is unknown, moving into a realm that is far outside what we're used to.
To Will means to have determination and perseverance. Nothing of any value comes with ease, and spiritual growth is no exception. Want to be a competent practitioner of magic? Then you better study, and work at it. If you make the choice to evolve and grow spiritually, then you will be able to do so -- but it is, in fact, a choice we make. Our will guides us, and will lead us to success. Without it, we are stagnant.
To Keep Silent seems like it should be an obvious one, but it's a bit more complex than it appears on the surface. To be certain, "keeping silent" means that we need to make sure we never out other members of the Pagan community without their permission, and to some extent, it means we need to keep our practices private. However, it also means that we need to learn the value of inner silence. It is a rare person indeed who recognizes that sometimes the unspoken is more important than the words we utter.

But it feels as though it is time for me to expand. To experience other new things...
I am also looking for others in the same field to network with.

I've never worn natural makeup before. I was very surprised and impressed.
I also bought the Glorious Primer. Which is a primer for under your make up. OMG! Feels like velvet!
I'm hooked!! I hope my party is a hit so I can earn rewards to buy more goodies.
The eye pigments (eye shadow) can be used so many different ways. It can be used wet or dry. It can be added to hair as a temporary hair color streaks, added to fingernail polish to create a new color, or added to your fingernail to create a soft glittered or ombre style. It can be applied to lips as a lip color. So it is possible to create a completely matched look with my eyes and lips! Wooohoo!!!

I am so excited!! Ever since I learned about Absinthe 3 years ago, I have wanted to experience it. It is from the 1900's. It is very potent. Made with herbs and Vodka (no less than 100 proof). It is outlawed in the United States. It originates from France. Nick named the Green Fairy. La Fee Verte means The Green Fairy.
So my obsession and curiosity with Absinthe is in full swing with all my Absinthe tools ordered from e-bay. I love my glasses and can not wait to hold one in my hand!
Authentic La Rochere Pontarlier Absinthe Glass
La Rochere Pontarlier Absinthe glasses have a reservoir to measure the proper amount of Absinthe to pour in.

Finding the magick in each day may not always be an easy task. But is something worth looking for. Sometimes I miss the simple signs. Do you ever do that? Get caught up in the everyday stresses and complications. It can be as easy as enjoying the sound and scent of a fresh rain. Watching a bird.
For the past week or so on my way to work. (It’s dark – 5:00 a.m.) A light – towards the East keeps catching my eye. A bright star and a smaller star. It’s been puzzling me. Are they always there and I don’t notice. Are they new? Is it a planet or something? Aliens?… Have I been watching a little too much Ancient Aliens?
Then today I was looking at my sky map iphone app searching for where Moon is located at the moment. Odd… There are two planets just above our waning moon. Jupiter. Which looks like it is very large, compared to the planet Venus to the left of it. Right where I’ve been seeing those stars!
Are we always able to see certain planets with the naked eye? I would not think so. Otherwise what use would there be for telescopes… It is all so fascinating and mysterious to me.
Interesting! Planets ARE visible during certain times… I love it!

I don't believe in blood offerings. And I do not believe in a single parent God or Goddess. I do not believe that we should be controlled by religious fear or that there is a dark demon waiting until we die to punish us. I believe in sacred promises, physical natural offerings such as flowers, milk, honey, seeds. I believe in many Gods and Goddesses. I believe in Karma. That the Universe gives you what you put out there.

I have never made my own insect repellent. I've never even used anything like that before. Because every living creature has a purpose. Right!?
But I have put too much hard work and love and caring into my plants for the grasshoppers to just come and eat them all up! My sunflowers are going down fast. And they have not even gotten to bloom yet. So, I searched on the internet of a 'natural' repellent. I found recipes containing garlic and onion and molasses. None of which I happened to have on hand that day. But for some reason I checked the ingredients of worchestire sauce. (thank you Goddess for that nudge) And worchestire sauce contains molasses, garlic, and onion!
Worked like a charm!!! Try to eat my sunflowers! I do not think so!...

But these are not the only things that I am thankful for. To list all the things in this life that I am grateful for would be completely impossible. I have the most amazing family. I am not great at showing my love and gratitude. I forget to call on anniversaries. I don't get gifts mailed off in time. But I am grateful that I have the kind of family that those things don't really matter. We know how much we love one another...
Without the family I have, and was raised in. I do not think I could have love and gratitude for all of the other things...

Today I was faced with a big decision. I have a Passion Party tomorrow night that is out of town. Out of state actually! I live 2 hours away from Billings Montana in Greybull, Wyoming. This was originally a very very exciting and happy thing to have happen to me. But through the couple of weeks since this party was booked with me. My husband and I are not doing so well. He makes a habit of coming home drunk, saying mean things to me. Then pretends like it never happened. Well the latest is that my gasoline card is being cut off that I use to go back and forth and I'm suppose to just 'figure it out'. So here lies the dilemma. I have $200.00 in my checking account. Do I go do this party, use most of my gasoline money (that is suppose to get me back and forth to work - I live an hour away from work). Take the chance of not having money to get to work and back home the next day?.. What if there are no sales at all.
But today after thinking all week long, do I go do this party or not. Will I get any money out of it? How will I go back and forth to work?.. I suddenly realized. Just maybe this party is what I need. Maybe the God & Goddess are giving me exactly what I need. So after trying to talk myself out of it all week long. I am happy that I am going to go do this party for my friend and do a good job.
If there are not any sales, then there are just not any sales. It's that simple. But on the other hand, by me going and doing a Passion Party I will get out of town for a while, which will feel good. I get out side my comfort zone. So I also get personal growth. I get my name/business out there more. I get to make some ladies laugh, have fun. Maybe I even get to make a new friend of two. I am making new connections. I get to make the decision to not take the easy way out. Taking the easy way out would actually only make me feel worse.
Of course I'm scared and nervous to find someone's house I've never been to in a huge city. But we do have Google Maps in this day and age *giggles* AND I AM A WITCH! I am powerful! I am strong! I got this!!
I believe the Goddess has aligned this opportunity for me for a reason. This party will be with women who are in beauty and nail tech school. Oddly enough thats what I'm wanting to learn too. I've wanted to be a cosmetologist since I was a little girl. I want to get out of nursing so very very desperately (i'm a C.N.A.) and would love to go to school for nail tech and have a hugely successful Passion Parties business!!
