Alas we prepare ourselves for the Mercury retrograde. You know what to expect – slow downs and confusion with all Mercury-related things. That includes possible difficulties with transportation, communication, electronics, and machines. Mercury is currently in calm sign of Taurus. It will officially retrograde on 4/9/17 but some people may be starting to feel the effects already. The planet starts to lose momentum before it actually turns around. Of course the planet is not really turning around, but that’s how we experience it from our perspective here on Earth, and perspective is everything right? (more…)


Jupiter in Libra

It’s been there for a while and it will be there for a while.  It’s retrograde right now, but that’s not a huge deal.  Jupiter is a beneficent planet.  The best way to benefit from its energy right now is to make sure you create balance in your life and your interactions with others.  If you are experiencing areas of imbalance you will be presented with opportunities to correct them now and for the next few months.


Everything is energy.  Just like the moon’s energy can affect the tides of the ocean, the moon, sun, and planets can affect us. The Kindred Cosmos is about knowing that we live in a connected universe. When we understand the energies that flow through it a little bit better, we can work with them beneficially.
