How Mercury Retrograde Affects Your Zodiac Sign

Posted by Jade Marvin on 10/7/21 4:00 PM

If you are unfamiliar with Astro-terminology, Mercury in Retrograde, or more commonly known as Mercury Retrograde, is when the planet Mercury seems to be moving backward - from west to east. The areas of life that Mercury tends to rule are disrupted and can affect each of us differently. Mercury is the planet that rules communication, travel, and technology, and when in retrograde - life can seem a bit out of control. Mercury Retrograde is a time for channeling energy inward, reflecting, re-assessing, and rethinking our lives. We’ve already survived two retrogrades in the year 2021, and now- we are right in the middle of one! This final retrograde of 2021 started on September 27 and is lasting through October 18. Here’s what you need to do to make it through the rest of retrograde with ease, based on your zodiac sign (according to AstroTwins from Mindbodygreen).

Posted by Jade Marvin on 9/2/21 4:00 PM

Acknowledging the good that you already have in your life is the foundation for all abundance.” - Eckhart Tolle

Starting your day in a positive mood, energized, and ready to take on the world could be a normal morning for you if you start your daily routine with a gratitude journal. Overthinking is a common enemy for many, constantly replaying scenarios that have not even happened yet. Or comparing yourself to others and constantly wanting what you don’t have can take a heavy toll on your mental health. On a subconscious level, journaling helps counteract our Negativity bias.

Posted by Jade Marvin on 8/26/21 4:00 PM

Whenever you find yourself doubting how far you can go, just remember how far you have come. Remember everything you have faced, all the battles you have won, and all the fears you have overcome.” - N.R. Walker

When Michelle Runnion, Great Graduate of the Integrative Healing Arts Practitioner Program, decided to overcome her fears and tribulations, her healing journey truly began and the spark of passion for healing others ignited. Michelle asserts, “I have struggled with anxiety and agoraphobia for the majority of my life. When I decided that I wanted to heal myself so that I have a better life and heal others is when I felt reborn. I have pushed myself to do things that once were too scary to do. In the process, I realized that I am a Light Warrior. The two choices were to get sucked in by the darkness or to live through love and light. Here I am, shining bright and ready to share my love for my passions with others.
