What is Mercury Retrograde?
Mercury is the planet which rules our minds and perception. It goes retrograde 3 times per year and basically it's a time to review and renew ourselves through discovering the stories we've created and inherited which keep us in outdated patterns. It's time to look at the programming and conditioning we were born into and take responsibility for ourselves. We may have inherited a really nasty human experience, but it is ours to heal and transform. No one can do it for us. This is also an optimal time to begin to process trauma, victimization, denial, guilt and shame.
Who should take this Course?
This Course is designed to benefit all people of any race, gender, spiritual philosophy or creed. Anyone who is committed to becoming a better version of self even when it feels challenging is invited to join us. YOU are invited!
Any person who desires to examine their personal lineage and ways that your ancestors participated or contributed to the American experience is welcome. It's important to know that every American whose family has lived here for several generations has unconsciously or consciously contributed to and benefited from the oppression of black, brown and indigenous people. Now is an opportunity to discover the hard truth, uncover denial, trauma and shame to transmute and heal these conditionings. We are thankful for our mothers, yet we are not our mothers. All of us can rewrite our programming and create lives, families, communities and a nation which honors the sovereignty of all people while weaving an interconnected future for coming generations.
Mercury Retrograde Reset Cancer Edition is designed to assist each participant on the journey inside of their personal and collective family heritage as Americans. We will explore our mother's and grandmother's stories to discover how their choices, experiences and lives have impacted us.

Create a culture based and rooted in unity and honoring all people
What I think and feel impacts the collective experience. I am responsible for what I bring to the collective.
Consciously or Unconsciously we create our reality. We are creating now with our thoughts and feelings.
Today I call forth my conscious awareness to begin creating with intention and living awareness. What I do matters,
What I wish for myself, I wish for all others. I wish freedom, love and joy for all humans everywhere.
What you put into the electromagnetic field will be your reality.
