Those of us whose sun signs are ruled by Mercury have already felt the turmoil of the impending retrograde. I’ve been reading about this bonus feature called The Shadow Effect. And how we not only get the hell that is seemingly endless weeks of bad communication, but we get extra days on either end of the cycle. From what I have found, it started on November 22. No shit. We noticed, but thanks for the added info.
The actual beginning of backwards appearance time is the 10th of this month through the 29th. But that Shadow Shit keeps going until January 17. (Fokker? You reading along today? Care to add your two cents worth to this topic? We could use the help here.) Another thing I just saw was that this particular retrograde mimics, with signs and degrees, the one we (that being the Royal We) went through in 1932. Again, wow. Thanks for telling us something not at all helpful but validating just the same.
Here’s the Oddity Du Jour, we came back around to Doreen’s Archangel deck in our card tour. And remember the other day when we got Sandalphon and Lora made fun of him? Well, he’s back. Only this time with a less disturbing illustration (sort of). (Hey, maybe angels are hard for some people to draw okay?!) Like our double salmon message this seemed beyond the usual chance, statistically speaking anyway. Seriously, we need to be grabbing up those lottery tickets kids.
“Victory! Archangel Sandalphon: Your prayers have been heard and answered. Have faith.
You deserve this time of victory. Your unwavering focus and dedication have resulted in blissful manifestation. Peace and pleasant feelings are yours right now. Let your focus be on this present moment, savor each feeling and experience fully. Know that the future is taken care of in a positive and loving way, as you allow yourself to enjoy the present moment in joy. Feel good about who you are, and know that your success benefits All.”
I looked around, after I saw that this one came up twice, and found this, where she talks about working with particular archangels:
“Sandalphon is one of two archangels who were mortal men, who lived such remarkable lives that they ascended into archangeldom (the other one is Metatron). Sandalphon can help your life be a masterpiece as well. Ask him to help you live in integrity, with your spiritual gifts of prophecy, healing, and manifestation, fully awakened. He can help you speak your truth openly, in a way that benefits everyone. He will also help you appreciate all the miracles and victories, of every size and level, in your life.”
This doesn’t go along with what Sylvia says exactly, in that, she doesn’t believe archangels have names, or ever incarnate (start in human form). But, we have enough of an open mind and heart here in JulieLand, that we have no problem allowing for differences of opinions and beliefs. So go with what feels right to you. I think that as long as we walk out there in our lives, with angels or fairies or spirits, as our Ally’s, and with joy, we can’t go wrong.
