Mercury Rx Scorpio Detox

Mercury Retrograde cycles coincide with large numbers of people going offline for a short term reset-detox. It makes sense considering Mercury is the messenger of the cosmos, retrograde periods call us to review, revisit, reset and technology pervades most aspects of daily life.

October 30th, 2019 Mercury digs in its heels and stations at the 28th degree of Scorpio, or the 238th degree of the Zodiac. It will retrograde back to the 12th degree of Scorpio on November 19th. That’s 20 days for you to detox, to call back your inspiration, assess any unhealthy patterns and reset boundaries. The Phoenix you choose to rise as depends on how deep you want to go. It’s your call and you are your only judge.

For the duration of this Mercury Retrograde period I’ll be here offering Merc Perk detox tips, decoding the messages from the Cosmos and watching how the planetary configurations play out on the world stage. It’s a process of slowing down, being present, re-empowering ourselves and consciously composting what needs to be released.

I will continue to share updates throughout this Rx season . I hope you’ll join me on this journey into your own diamond mine reclaiming what has been lost and releasing what has expired.

The ways of water

Kootenay National Park, BC

The waters are stirring up what’s been below the surface. For some it stirs a need for connection, for some it’s time to let go.

The Sun & Moon in water signs was the perfect dynamic to gather in Calgary for the 1st of these Living Room Sessions. We talked about wtf is going on; how easy it is to feel powerless when the world is a dumpster fire & the ways we’re learning to reframe “work” & the Capricorn narrative we’ve inherited.

Today Mercury Retrograde passes through the eye of the needle. It’s like the Winter Solstice of its retrograde phase & we can now breathe out knowing the end is near! Mercury will go direct on August 2nd.

With this Venus~ Pluto playlist blaring in the background it’s not time to look away. Take some time for yourself & listen closer. Often it reveals a diamond, a crystal clear piece of the puzzle that you’ve been waiting for.

Under the current sky it might not be what you want to hear; water is subversive. If you’re noticing water damage in a relationship you know exactly where your own leak is because this didn’t start yesterday. Now is the perfect time to renegotiate boundaries & take out your own garbage. Personal responsibility wears many hats & it starts & ends with you.

Living Room Sessions

The stars & planets can feel so far away while astrologically they reflect the undeniable intensity brewing in our world right now. Living Room Sessions bring the sky back home while connecting community members in a meaningful way.

Living Room Sessions are hosted by Dru Ish in living rooms and community spaces across the country. Each session discusses astrology in relation to current world events while also exploring where these energies are manifesting in each person’s chart.

These workshop style sessions are designed to be affordable & accessible for both the novice and those who love knowing what it all means, while bridging the gap between our individualistic world and primal need for connection.

Dru Ish is a professional astrologer who has been reading the sky for over 20 years. She has a passion for being connected to community via meaningful threads and following the leads between seemingly unrelated people and events. She offers readings online and in person while touring with Jessika Fancy and their Astro Tattoo sessions. You can read more about Dru and her practice here and read blogs and follow her on IG.

Melbourne❣️
I love how you wear your heart on your red brick sleeve
It’s definitely hard to say goodbye today, but it lets me know how I feel about this land & the people who have made this hometown visit what it was.

Leaving is 💔😢 & while endings are a natural part of life, Social Media has changed our relationship to goodbyes & grief. We may say goodbye, but we see each other tomorrow when we post photos of our ongoing lives: always here.

Home, too, is often a complex topic with colonisation, borders & immigration policies adding further complexity; eternal thanks to the Bunurong people whose land I grew up on & whose land continues to be occupied. Melbourne, you have my heart. See ya when I’m lookin’ at ya! 😎✌🏼

What a Jupiter in Sagittarius gift; having my 2019 Horoscopes reach queerdo’s far and wide! I hope they continue to guide you throughout the year and remind you to offer yourself the compassion we so readily offer others.

Thanks to @them for the opportunity, as well as to the special people in my life who support me and my work in a multitude of ways. Also, the artwork by Raisa Yavneh is amazing!

Happy New Year, everyone!

2018 Astrology workshop

Working with the Astrology of 2018

 

Astro Workshop add

With Venus taking us down to the Underworld in her pentacle creating retrograde cycle, and Mercury throwing us for a loop when it retrogrades in Sagittarius & Scorpio…while the Eclipse Cycle is changing signs…

…how do we keep going forward when the planets are taking us backwards?

 

What is this workshop about?

In this workshop, Dru will walk you through the astrological events of each month remaining in 2018.

It will offer you tools for how to work with the planets via understanding of where they are kicking up dust in your own chart.

We will break down the meaning of retrograde cycles, eclipse seasons, what it means to have both Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn, and what all this intense planetary activity is building toward.

Participants who sign up will each receive a workbook tailored to their own astrological chart.
