Welcome to Cosmic Rhythm Week
Here’s the replay from our Free Live Teaching with Kathleen Whalen on Wednesday, Nov 10. This teaching augments what was in today’s email (see below).
Mercury and the Second Chakra
Today we learned about Mercury.
Which Chakra is Mercury’s? Find out in the replay video (above).
For the next three days, I will guide you on the planets that are associated with creating Green Days and help you understand each planet’s connection with the Chakras – Mercury, Jupiter and Venus.
Right now, in November, we are integrating the changes from the Mercury retrograde that just finished its cycle on November 2. Are you upgrading tech, planning travel or focusing on caring for your nervous system? Use this week to finish up those plans, then take a short break after Nov 17 for at least 5 days because the Lunar Eclipse is around the corner. You’ll want to put big decisions on hold around the Lunar Eclipse late next week. (You’ll get more eclipse guidance next Monday).
The color Green supports Mercury functions in your mind and body. Here’s why: The gemstone associated with Mercury is Green. Mercury controls the health of the lungs and nervous system. What do the lungs need? Oxygen! And trees and plants give us Oxygen. The Green of the planet give us Oxygen. Trees give us life, they exhale oxygen for us to breathe. It’s just one of the reasons Mercury’s healing color is Green. Wear Green to balance Mercury in your consciousness and body.
Today we’ll take a look at one of the universe’s most misunderstood astrological phenomenon:
Many people have heard about Mercury retrograde – but Jupiter, Saturn, Mars and Venus all appear to retrograde at different times in their orbit around the Sun.
Thankfully, ALL planets are direct right now.
For thousands of years in Asia, it was the job of ancient astronomers who were also astrologers to connect the planetary movements with social change and give counsel to kings and great leaders.
In Vedic astrology, a retrograde planet first and foremost turns the qualities of the planet inward so you deeply embody the change, shift mind-set, internally first and receive internal upgrades. Then you can use the new found understanding or talent in the world, after integration.
A retrograde planet affects the results of actions taken at the time of the retrograde; bringing deeper lessons and improved skill sets, if you repeat and steadfastly apply yourself during a retro time.
Otherwise, we find in Vedic astrology that one time is not enough to get ‘er done and truly learn the lesson or skill set associated with the lesson the planet brings. It’s an opportunity to uplevel your abilities by going deep first.
Venus Retrograde Dec 2021
Some questions to ponder during Venus retrograde next month:* How do you let those in your family know you love them? * How do you love yourself while still showing up in the way you want to with friends and family?
This is a time to find new ways to communicate how you feel – but do not expect any big changes in relationships around the holidays in December until the end of January 2022.
Just enjoy each other’s company without any expectations and let the LOVE flow. This will be a healing over the holidays, to show your love by being of service and building relationships in new ways. Plus there are a ton of Green Days in December which will help the holidays feel extra cheerful.
See how you can show people you care by what you DO for them, in the little acts of service. With family this holiday, do the dishes, help clean or help organize or carry the groceries from the car. Help fix things at a friend’s house. See how someone needs you and show up. This is because Venus is retrograding with Saturn the planet of service during the holidays in December.
With Mercury Retrogrades, in general:
LEARN something new, especially positive psychology principles, and improve your happiness habits, even if you are 99!
And if you’re curious – here’s what happens astronomically during retrogrades…
When we look up at the path of the Sun, Moon and planets across our sky (called the ecliptic), all the objects appear to ‘travel’ and rise from the Eastern horizon and set on the western horizon.
A planet appears to retrograde when it ‘goes backwards’ from its regular path across the sky.
The image below helps you see what this really means:
See how Mercury appears to go retrograde? (This is an image of Mars, but it is used to illustrate the concept of Retrograde.) The planet is still orbiting the Sun in a straight path, but it appears to go backwards from our point of view from Earth. That’s a retrograde!
We are intrinsically linked with the Sun and Moon whether we look out the window or not ~ you are always connected with the forces of our solar system and its pulsing influences can be guided and understood.
You deserve ALL the internal upgrades and epiphanies that happen when you start aligning your life with the Sun, Moon and even the retrogrades.
That’s why I’ve included a handy Mercury Report as a bonus in the Annual Conscious Calendars subscription package.
This report will give you a wealth of extremely specific – but also practical & easy to follow – steps for prospering throughout the next Mercury retrograde cycle in 2022.
Tomorrow I will post a video in the blog for Jupiter’s activation instead of a LIVE experience. It will help your brain and ability to express yourself! Just go to the blog each day if you miss any live experiences.
Sending you waves of appreciation,
Kathleen M. Whalen
