MERCURY RETROGRADE
Here we go again. Mercury retrograding (and stationary) between May 18 – June 11. This time, the messenger of the gods and goddesses will be flying backward through the territorial air of Gemini, his native sign. That is actually a good thing. If swift-winged-feet Mercury needs to fly reverse, let it happen in the open air of Gemini, but for those of us who fly a lot and frequent airports, we might experience more delays, more lost or misplaced baggage and or visa issues. So take heed, you have been warned.

Who is Mercury?
Your ability to read, write, communicate, understand this email, reply to this communication, think, talk, trade, travel, mail, digitize, inform, misinform, lie and steal, as well as make magic happen is due to Mercury’s extensive network of agents and angels. The biblical word for angel (Malach - מַלְאָך ) means “messenger.” When Mercury is around, angelic action abound. 



Angels have wings that grant them the ability to travel faster that thought, and indeed, Mercury also has wings (on his feet). Not surprising that once Christianity took over the Roman empire, Mercury's temples were converted to churches dedicated to Michael, the archangel. In the Tarot, Mercury is represented by the Major Arcana card, the Magician. According to the wisdom of the Tarot, Mercury or the magician was the one who conjured the deck. That is why people “read” the cards and not “look” at them. Mercury is the ruler of the signs Gemini and Virgo and is associated with intellect, messages and communication.  



What areas are affected?

Since Gemini is also associated with siblings, neighbors and or roommates, much of the misunderstanding, miscommunication, and general confusion would somehow involve them. So please, be forgiving and ask forgiveness. The good thing about Mercury retro is that, ruling marketing and PR, even those who don’t know their zodiac sign, have heard about Mercury retro, which provides us with a celestial culprit for our mishaps and mistakes.

Gemini also rules contracts, trade, and businesses. While maybe opportunities and ideas come during Mercury retrograde, avoid signing documents if at all possible. If you must, then please run it by two or three lawyers before and read it again and again. Life shouldn't stop because of the planet’s apparent backward movement, but still, one must be careful with all things related to communication.

Since Mercury is also the ruler of Virgo, as it goes retrograde it might throw off balance certain aspects that are associated with the Virgo domain: diet, work, employees, co-workers and your schedule/routine.

Anything good about Mercury retro?
The next three weeks is a marvelous time to undo contracts you want to come out of and get rid of relationships that don’t work anymore. It is also an auspicious time to edit, revisit, and reevaluate every aspect of your life. In fact, open the dictionary, and every word that starts with the prefix “re” (report, realign, re-imagine, etc.) is recommended to REconnect with. Also, it is a great time to RElax, and REwind...



What signs are most affected?
While Mercury retro affects everyone, this cycle will influence Gemini, Virgo, and Sagittarius much more and to a lesser degree also disturb the squaring signs to Gemini: Pisces. However, Aries, Libra, Leo, and Aquarius might benefit from some of the misunderstandings. In general, Mercury retrograde quickens synchronicities and creates funny serendipities, however short lived. 

Conclusion
Avoid: buying computers or anything that demands a contracts, signing documents, beginning projects, starting new relationships or partnerships.

Focus on: selling or giving things you don't need, editing, reexamining, letting go, following synchronicities, being forgiving to people who are late, mean, or forgetful )but usually are not).

Remember: Mercury is the trickster, not the killer. He is a magician, not Mafioso. He is of the dark but carries the light. He is a storyteller, a connector. But during his retrograde motion, he focuses more on delivering messages between you and your higher-self/divine rather than between you and your human colleagues.

Wishing you constructive, illuminating and beneficial misunderstandings that open new doors to wondrous realms.

Spring and the Undoing of the Inertia of Pain
Thanks to all those who participated in the Esalen Kabbalah retreat. It was a great success and we are doing another one this August 28-30!

Happy Earth Day!
How appropriate that Earth Day is celebrated always in Taurus, the sign of Mother Nature.

On April 20th we crossed over into the realm of Taurus and will walk in their fertile land of milk and honey until May 21st. Examining what the archetype of Taurus can help us understand what we need to focus on for the next month.
  
Taurian Queendom of Pleasure…
What is special about Taurus? What is their creed, core and essence that not only differentiates them from their brothers and sisters, but also explains the reason for their existence?

The popular and enduring Taurian stereotype is that they are stubborn. What do you expect from a fixed (modality) earth (element) sign? That’s their job. As a fixed sign, their task is to serve as a support-beam. As the structural constituent of the zodiac, Taurus is capable of withstanding heavy load primarily by resisting bending. You cannot move it, and to be honest, you shouldn’t, since true to its name, it supports the roof, and in the case of the zodiac edifice, it supports the heavy load of the heavens.
In Kabbalah, Taurus is one of the four Chayot, (חַיּוֹת) creatures; guardians of the Throne of God. And in Rafael’s masterpiece “Ezekiel’s Vision” they support the chariot of God, alongside Leo the Lion.

Taurus Axiom
Taurus retains the magic of transforming talents and values into wealth and prosperity. Their formula is:

Talent + Self Worth = Money.

 In the next thirty days, we all will be learning and drilling this valuable lesson. Someone around you, something in your environment, perchance a dream, or a book, a work of art, will inspire you to reconnect to talents you might have forgotten about. These talents, strengthened by an investment of faith and time metamorphose into money and abundance. The month of the bull presents the prospect of transforming inner wealth into outer wealth. No wonder the Tarot card 6 of disk is called Success and is associated with Taurus.

Matadors and Cowboys
In my early twenties, I worked as a cowboy in a Kibbutz located at the Golan Heights. Since our lands wee by the border, they were filled with old Syrian mines. Our job was to fence those mines, making sure cows and their calf don’t wonder inside those areas and find an untimley death left over by a human war (the sign before Tarurus is Aries, ruled by Mars). But every so often we had to herd them from one grazing field to another, desrupting the cow’s favorite static motion which is not moving. It takes a cowboy mounted on a big mare or a matador waving a red cape to instigate movement among the Taurus. The unfortunate side effect of the techinques listed above is that the bull’s movemnet usually ends up being an all-or-nothing occurrence. Their tendency is not to just move a bit, but to charge forward at you, accelrarting from zero to 30 mph in no time. Eventually, I realized that with Taurus (Minotaurs or humans) it is better to lure them into change and movement using one of the five senses : touch, taste, smell, sight, and hearing. It needs to be pleasurable. It is the carrot they favor, so give it to them.

This month try the carrot approach not only with yourself but the people or pets around you. The last thirty days governed by Aries were more stick than carrot style, so let’s try something different in the next four weeks.


Charging Bull, New York City
Money Money Money
The ancient association of Taurus, the bull, with money and prosperity was made popular when the term “Bull Market” was coined (18th century) to describe a rising tendency in the stock market. The bull- market, as opposed to the bear-market, indicates optimism, money flowing, and people’s talents are being rewarded with cash. The bull was chosen as a symbol for the rising market because of the way it attacks its opponents. It uses it horns and head to thrust the helpless victim upward while the bear uses its paws in a downward motion. Above you can see the famous Raging Bull sculpture by Arturo Di Modica, located in Wall Street, New York, which he installed without permission and paid for its creation out of his own pocket. He had to have the self-worth to invest in his talents $360,000, which is the amount used in the creation of the 3.2 tons bronze sculpture. Bronze is made of about 88% copper (planet of Venus ruler of Taurus) and 12% tin (ruled by Jupiter whose Tarot card is called Fortune). By the way, it is up for sale since 2004, however, there is a catch. If you buy it, you have to leave it where it is. As I said, bulls do not like to move once they found their place.
Arturo Di Modica created another version of the Raging Bull, nicknamed the Bund Bull, which he placed in Shanghai in 2010. The Bund Bull was unveiled, as it should, on May 15th, during the sign Taurus. This raging bull however looks younger and more aggressive, equipped with a menacing tail.

Bund Bull
 
Since Taurus rules art, music, and design, this is a great month to explore your creative side. Anything goes. Form using your smart phone to capture nature’s majesty to taking a long earned massage, singing in the shower (unless you are in southern California so use short songs), planting, painting, or conceiving an idea for a new project.    

Back to the Beginning…
So what is so special about Taurus?

They are the true earthlings. They are Mother Nature’s favorites. Siddhartha, a Taurus, sat for seven days and nights under a Bodhi Tree (only a Taurus can be that fixed). On the full moon in May during Taurus, he asked Mother Nature to speak on his behalf. He was confronting the last of Mara’s temptations. Siddhartha, like a true Taurus, was seeking in his deep meditation to reach the immovable point. As a fixed earth sign, he wanted to be at one with the axis of the universe. He knew that there he will find the reason and solution for human suffering. But the third temptation, called “Duty” was the hardest of them all. Mara informed him that his aging father needs him by his side to help govern the kingdom. There is no time for selfish spiritual retreats when country calls. Right before he was about to surrender to the temptation, Mother Nature opened he mouth and testified that Siddhartha is no more. She said “awaken, sitting before you, is nothing but pure light. And light has no other duty besides shining.”
Taurus have a special relation to the five senses. That is their link, their bloodline to Mother Nature. They can see the value in objects and talents in people.

Dedicate the next month to your own awakening by finding what centers you. Joseph Campbell called it “your bliss.” Pay extra attention to Buddha’s date of birth, enlightenment anniversary as well as day of death which all happened on the full moon in May. This year, it will take place May 3rd.  That day you will get your own yearly dose of Enlightenment. Maybe an aha moment, or a feeling of awakening, maybe like the Buddha you will be able to find what is the source of your suffering and find four noble truths that can help you deal with it. 

So pamper yourself, learn to enjoy what the earth offers, and find how to manifest the Taurian Axiom:
Talent + Self Worth = Prosperity
Long Live the Queen of Taurus
