Recharging for Psychic Types


Recharging & Renewing Your Energy

(for the naturally psychic)  


June 1st, 2018  By Rev. Dr. Cynthia Killion (Psychic Cynthia)




         Dear Friends, hi there!  I hope that you had a fantastic Memorial Day weekend and that this week has gone well for you too.  I spent the morning (and part of the afternoon too) working out in my Fairy Garden, thinning out morning glories, planting more sunflowers, and putting tiny flowers in the ground that I grew in my greenhouse.  (Hello Cosmos!)  


        Thursdays (and Mondays) are sometimes my gardening days, since I often work quite a bit doing readings & meeting with psychic mentorship students on the weekends.  I have found that on days when I am meeting with people, it is hard to get much done in the garden, especially if I don’t get it done BEFORE hand.  


Like many naturally psychic people (and especially like most natural empaths), I can enjoy my time with people (at least, when the people are enjoyable, smile).  But I do have to spend time re-charging myself after I am done socializing or just being around people.  It’s not that the people that I am around most of the time are “bad” or have anything amiss about their energies—in fact, it’s usually quite the opposite, in that most of the people I mentor or do readings for (or even just hang out with) have quite wonderful energies indeed!  


Nonetheless, when I connect with people (whether it is in-person, on FB, or via telephone), I REALLY connect, and I put a lot of myself into it.  I make the effort to be fully PRESENT with whoever I am with in the moment.

I say I make “the effort”, but truly, it’s just something that has always come naturally to me, something that I do automatically.  I have also observed other naturally psychic people responding the same way in their social interactions (giving of themselves fully & completely in the moment when they are with others).  So I know it’s not just me!  Actually, I’ve had to work hard to train myself to hold just a little back if I can, because if I don’t make the effort to keep a bit of my energy for me (and holding back really IS an effort for me), well then, I will just give it all out and have nothing left for me.


Sound familiar? (smile)  I bet that at least a few of you reading this newsletter-blog can relate to what I am saying here!  For I know that MANY of you readers are natural born psychics yourselves, and are touched with a bit of the gift, whether you consciously know it or not.  At the very least, you probably at least KNOW someone with this tendencies I am describing.  (And if so, perhaps you can help them along in life by helping to remind them to take good care of themselves too.)

Interestingly enough, although I do definitely require time alone after being with people to get re-charged and re-energized, I also find interacting with people to be quite ENERGIZING in its own way.  (Especially when I am interacting in a spiritual psychic or astrological capacity.)  There is nothing that can pump me up and excite me the same as being with a client or a group and helping them connect with the spiritual psychic realm. (Even if I do have to rest for a few hours afterwards—sometimes even DAYS if it is really intense.) 

And truly, I would not trade my life for anyone else’s.  I love what I do and I love the connections that I get to make in my life as a spiritual psychic.  And yes, when I say “connections” here, I am referring both to people here on this plane AND the angels, guides, ancestors and passed-on loved ones who I regularly get to connect with through my work.  There is something inherently satisfying & rewarding about being able to connect in this way!



Still, no matter how much one loves connecting, it is important to take time to re-charge and re-connect with ONE’S SELF.  (This is especially true for those of us who are naturally psychically or empathically inclined.)


Of course, this is sometimes easier said than done, as my experience with the general psychic personality (and many spiritual people too) is that we don’t always know when to quit or step back, especially when it involves saying “no” or stepping back from our social or professional interactions for a little while to re-charge.  In fact, the famed trance medium and medical clairvoyant Edgar Cayce is said to have died because he was doing too many readings a day and just wouldn’t stop. 

Edgar’s scenario was probably a bit more extreme than most (since after all, he was one of the most famous trance mediums of all time and did THOUSANDS of readings in his life).  But the point still stands for the rest of us that we need to listen to our guides (and our own inner guidance system) and know when to actively engage in the world and with other people, and when to pull back and re-charge and replenish ourselves.


I actually find that the more time I spend recharging and replenishing, the easier it is for me to connect with others, and the more harmonious these interactions flow.  I also find that whenever I start to feel cranky, impatient or short with others, it usually is a sign that I need to step back and take some time to be alone and replenish myself for a while.  Once I have refilled my cup (spiritually speaking) and spent some time getting relaxed and replenished, I can usually return back to my outer world interactions with a much more calm & cheerful demeanor.   


Just how does one go about spiritually and psychically re-charging and replenishing oneself?  Truly, there are as many different ways to get psychically replenished and recharged as there are people.  Each person has her (or his) own way of recharging through the activities that are energizing for her.  Generally speaking, when you want to get spiritually and psychically recharged, it is helpful to unplug from outside communications for a little while if you can, and just be alone with yourself and your own thoughts.  (You may also find it helpful to spend quiet time alone with just one special friend or family member.) 


When you are replenishing, the idea is to give yourself some time and space to just be, and also give your aura some space to breathe and re-calibrate without too many outside influences. 


Many people do find getting outside in nature to be spiritually nurturing and psychically replenishing.  (This is why there is such a long tradition of mystical gardeners and nature explorers.)  Others find that they are refueled by meditating quietly inside or listening to beautiful music, chanting or singing or even taking a relaxing bath. 

Although you might not think of it as being particularly “spiritual”, watching a favorite TV show or reading a novel can also help you to replenish and rejuvenate your energies, provided that the show you are watching (or the novel you are reading) is not too intense and helps you to feel lighter and freer inside.


Whatever YOUR own personal path is for getting psychically recharged and renewed, I do hope that you will remember to take good care of yourself and frequently replenish your energies.  Bright Blessings!

Continued Effects of Feb 15 Solar Eclipse





Wed Feb 28th 2018


by Rev. Dr. Cynthia Killion (Psychic Cynthia)


Dear Friends, hello there!  I hope your week is going well.  I am mainly writing today because I want to share with you that with the solar eclipse in Aquarius having occurred back on February 15th, the energies have been pretty rough lately. 

Pretty rough, meaning, I’ve noticed that there has been a flair up in health problems and relationship difficulties for many, as well as emotional insecurities and old issues being retriggered (especially around the areas of feeling loved or like you belong, or feeling the need to break free and be more of an individual for some).


Issues around body, health, money and feeling safe, secure, or worthy are being activated right now BIG TIME for many.  It’s a bit TENSE right now for some for sure.  Even though this eclipse was about two weeks ago, we are STILL feeling its effect.  And I must say, even though I wrote an entire Cosmic Newsletter about it back on Feb 14th (hope you received that!), I think that I entirely underestimated just how POWERFUL these eclipse was going to be in terms of its effects upon humanity and its ability to bring up old stuff from the shadows.


  Hopefully, the last few weeks have just been peachy and rosy for all of you, and hopefully, NONE of this applies to any of you.   It is my sincere desire for each of you to have peace in your heart and love, joy, health and abundance in your life.  But darn it!  I also know that conflict and struggle happen in this 3-D reality we are living in.  So if things have been pretty tough for you lately, well, hang in there.  It will get better soon (at least, the part that is being triggered by this last eclipse). 


Even though eclipses often have effect for at least 6 months after they hit exact, the hardest time is usually in the first month or so afterwards, especially the first 2-3 weeks after.  That means that for most of us at least, we will be out of the worst of it by or around March 15th. 

(Even if outer situations don’t improve by then, our INNER state will have improved.  In other words, we will have calmed the heck down and will be better equipped to deal with whatever is before us!)


I know that I personally am looking forward to the intensity of the energies letting up just a bit.  Even though many things are going well for me, it has been rough for me since the eclipse, since I tend to experience & feel the energies of cosmic shifts in my body, and this most recent shift has left me with a rather uncomfortable case of appendicitis.  I don’t know if you have ever had appendicitis before, but if you haven’t, suffice it to say that it is one of the most painful conditions one can experience.  Usually, it ends with having the appendix cut out, but I am hoping to avoid that! 


Believe it or not, I cured myself once of appendicitis before using a combination of fasting with positive affirmations, healing visualizations, and herbal teas and home remedies.  I am hoping that I will be successful again.   We’ll see.  It’s been about a week now and I haven’t died or collapsed, so I am taking that as a good sign.


  (By the way, I’m not necessarily saying that you should try to cure yourself of appendicitis using these things, but only that this is what I myself am doing.  You do have to really know what you are doing to self-treat something like this.  It helps if you have had lots of experience & practice with these kinds of alternative healing systems BEFORE you are faced with something serious like appendicitis.  Also, most people don’t have the kind of discipline it takes to fast for a week or more and follow the regiment necessary to get the appendix back to full health using natural methods.  So if you happen to have this particular problem too, or anything else serious, you would probably be better off going to a medical doctor and letting them help you take care of it.  Unless of course you are like me and are a die-hard naturalist!  Lol.)


In any case, my point here is that we ALL have our stuff to deal with when intense energies like this are activated.  For me, I am experiencing these energies as a temporary blockage in the digestive system and a healing crisis of the physical sort.   For you, the energies may activate or express in different ways. 


In fact, you might even find some kind of tension & breakthrough happening in MULTIPLE areas of life during the next few weeks.  (For example, come to think of it, there have been some rather interesting family issues come up lately for my husband and I.)


Wherever the energies are being activated, there will most likely be tension, struggle or challenge.  But this isn’t without its silver lining, for in many cases, it is by going through our struggles and facing our challenges that we grow the most effectively.  Every challenge has a blessing, every struggle has a potential benefit. 


I know for me that the blessing of being down and out with a sore appendix is having to take time to rest and take care of myself, and having to momentarily say no to any demands except the most necessary.  And when I say “having”, I do mean really HAVING to do something—as in, now I MUST do these things or else. 


That’s the way powerful energies like these operate—they come in and stir things up and put you in a situation that gives you the opportunity and strong impetus to do what needs to be done.  Basically, it looks and feels like there is a force outside of yourself that is pressuring you to do or see things differently, a power that is nudging you along towards a course-correction and saying, “no, not that way—THIS way.” 

I’m not so sure that this intervening force or power is really outside of us, but maybe it is more like It is part of us and we are part of It. 


In any case, whatever It is, thank the Universe for this force of nature that is activated during major energy shifts.  And thank goodness for Its ability to always find the weak link within our lives and to bring up all the old stuff that needs to be dealt with and cleared out so that we can move on to higher levels of growth and joy. 


Is it always fun?  Absolutely not.  But then again, won’t it be just WONDERFUL when you come out the other side of whatever it is you are struggling with or challenged by today?  Trust me, it will be!  And yes, you WILL come out the other side, one way or the other.  Thanks for reading this update--may you find comfort, peace and joy in the days ahead!   


P.S.  Happy (almost) full moon in Virgo!  For more updates on that one, follow me on Facebook, and subscribe to my Cosmic Newsletter/Psychic Newsletter here on this site for the most in-depth updates.  Bright Blessings!

Power of Blessing--How to Have the Best Year Possible

How to Have the Best New Year Possible

(The Psychic Super-Power of Blessing)


By Rev. Dr. Cynthia Killion

www.cynthiakillion.com  January 11th 2018






Wondering how to have the best New Year possible?  Bless it, and bless it with love and joy! 



Your blessing is one of the most powerful tools you have available at your disposal.  In fact, your blessing is actually one of the main psychic super-powers that is part of your natural psychic birthright. 



Many people in modern society frequently use their consciousness to curse and complain (which believe it or not, is another kind of psychic super-power, but more like in a black-magic, dark cloud kind of way).  In fact, it’s become pretty mainstream these days to feel continually outraged or wronged and constantly complain.  On the other hand, very few of us nowadays are aware of how powerful our BLESSING can be to positively transform a situation. (And even fewer of us invoke this psychic super-power of blessing.)



As a professional psychic, one of the questions that I am asked frequently during this time of year is “What do you see in store for me for the New Year?”


Whenever I am asked this question, the thought that comes to me automatically is to ask the person speaking, “What is it that you would like to see and CREATE for yourself in this New Year?”





For so much of what happens in our lives is created by our own consciousness—both through the intentions we set, and what we focus on thinking about and acting upon in our daily lives.  Generally, the more positive your consciousness and the better your attitude, the better your experience will be in the year ahead.  This is true even when unpleasant things happen to you, for when you have a positive and hopeful attitude, you are able to make tasty lemonade out of any lemons that life hands you! 



One of the easiest (and most effective) ways to ensure that you have the best year possible is to use your positive consciousness & constructive psychic power to literally BLESS your year ahead.  



It’s simply really—all you need to do to employ this psychic superpower is to take a moment each day (preferably in the morning, shortly after awakening—or the night before), and say something such as:



“I bless this year with love & joy!  2018 (or whatever year it is), I am grateful for all the blessings and gifts you are bringing me.”



You can also increase the power of your blessing by adding on a blessing for the day and/or month ahead:



“I bless this day (or month) with love & joy, and am open to all the gifts and blessings it holds for me!



Remember too that if something challenging or difficult happens for you in this year/season/month/week or day ahead, you still have the power to make the best of things and turn it around for the positive by invoking the gift of your own blessing.  



For life isn’t so much about what happens to you but rather what you DO with what happens and whether you use it to help you become a bigger or a smaller person.  For me personally, some of the most devastating and traumatic experiences of my life also ended up blessing me in the greatest way—for as I focused on blessing the situation and opening myself up to the possibility that good could come out of it, I did indeed receive a great deal of good from the situation (even as I continued to deal with the not-so-fun parts).



For this reason, whatever happens, I suggest meeting it with a blessing.  This is ESPECIALLY useful when you receive difficult news or feel devastated by something that happens.  When you encounter a down-in-the-dumps kind of situation like that, instead of meeting it only with despair, instead choose to muster your psychic super-power of blessing, and say,



“I bless this situation with love!  I affirm that somehow, somewhere, GOOD will come out of this for me and my family.”



When you do this, at first you might still feel that the situation mostly stinks, but you will immediately begin to feel a glimmer of hope light up within you, and a sense of lightness will begin to come into your aura.  And the MORE you keep blessing the situation, and the deeper you open your heart to receive the good it has to offer, the lighter you will become, and the more blessed you will truly be!

Season of the Heart Chakra


by Rev. Dr. Cynthia Killion 

(excerpted from materials for students in the Psychic Mentorship program)





      December is a gateway month, the end that soon gives way to the new beginning.  As we are in the holiday season, we glow with the joy and light of spiritual hope that infuses this time of year.  A general vibe of festivity fills the air—there are gatherings with friends, family, and co-workers.  Even when we have no special gatherings to attend, there is a sense of collective connectedness and generosity that tends to bring people closer together than at any other time of the year—for the holidays know no stranger.


            Can you feel it?  Can you feel the cord of unconditional love connecting us all together?  As a natural born psychic person, you most likely are already filled with a sense of love for your fellow human beings.  But can you feel how the collective holiday energy STRENGTHENS and AMPLIFIES your own sense of love, generosity and compassion? 


Whatever holiday it is that you celebrate during this season of winter celebrations, know that it is truly helping to bring out the best in you—the joy, the hope, and the pure light and love.  The holiday season is the season of the heart chakra….indeed, it is easier at this time of year than any other to step into the vibration of pure, cosmic unconditional love and joy, and to just KNOW and feel at the deepest level that you are never alone, for you walk in the company of angels, masters, guides and your passed on loved ones. 


And as you step into this sense of joy & connectedness, you also step into greater clarity and INTUITION, for it is easier to see more clearly when you are connected with the positive oneness energy of the heart chakra.  Have you ever noticed how much easier it is to make contact with your angels & guides and sense your passed-on loved ones when you are filled with the light of unconditional love?  


And yet, the heart has both its lightness and heaviness. 


As your heart chakra opens during this holiday season (or at any other time), it may bring up feelings of loneliness, despair, and isolation.  In fact, instead of sensing and feeling your oneness with humanity and the Universe, there may be times during this holiday season when you feel very alone indeed.  This is normal and natural, especially for a spiritual psychic person such as yourself who feels so deeply.  For when the heart chakra opens, it doesn’t just open to the joys and positivity of life, but it also opens to release ALL human emotions and experiences, including the experience and memories of despair or feeling alone, alienated or abandoned.  


When your heart opens during this holiday season, you may also find that there is a deep GRIEF that comes flooding out.  This grief can arise at the most unexpected times, even at the times when you had just been feeling joyful and hopeful a few minutes before.  The grief can be because you are thinking about and missing someone who has passed into spirit, perhaps wishing that this person could physically be present with during the holiday season. 



Of course, as a person on the path of spiritual psychic awareness, you know that your loved ones in spirit are still here with you, and may even sense them somehow.  But still—when the heart chakra opens around the holiday season, there can be grief for what was lost in their passing.



The grief that sometimes comes pouring out of the heart during the holiday season can also relate to events of the past—

a replaying of times when you felt hurt, alone or afraid.  Often, the holidays bring forth BOTH our best memories and our worst memories.  Of course, the terms “best” and “worst” used here are purely subjective and relative, and relate to how we see things from the human viewpoint.  (For from the cosmic viewpoint, there is no better than or worse than, only experiences that give us the opportunity to learn and grow.)  


All of this can be normal and natural to experience at times of intense heart chakra opening, including during the holiday season, or at any other time in your life when your heart chakra is suddenly and dramatically open.


It is quite normal to have worries and fears, as this is part of the human experience.  However, when you are on the spiritual psychic path, it is best to not allow yourself to become overwhelmed with the more unpleasant or constrictive emotional energies, for in doing so, you constrict your aura and your entire chakra system, making it more difficult to receive clear psychic impulses.  


Yes, allow yourself to feel whatever comes naturally, for this is part of the heart chakra psychic awakening path.  But YOU need to be the one to stay in charge of your feelings and energy field, not to let your feelings take charge and overwhelm you— otherwise you will lose the solid footing that you need to experience psychic clarity and higher awareness.  (By the way, this solid footing and sense of groundedness in a healthy heart chakra is the same energy you need in order to have a happy & joyous holiday season, and an excellent start to the New Year!)


It is VERY easy to lose your higher perspective and sense of connection with the spiritual psychic realm when your heart chakra is overwhelmed and channeling all kinds of unsavory energies and emotions.  In fact, since the heart chakra is a portal for oneness and connection with others, when you allow your heart chakra to flood out or get overwhelmed, it is entirely possible that some of the unpleasant emotions you bring through aren’t even your own!



For these very reasons, and also just for your overall health & well-being, it is VERY important to do what you can to strengthen, balance, cleanse and uplift the heart chakra during the holiday season, AND at any other time when you are experiencing the sensation of a heart opening. 


There are MANY ways to strengthen and uplift your heart chakra, indeed, probably as many different ways as there are people.  (Plenty of the private work that I do in readings with clients often involves helping them strenghten and balance their heart chakras!)  


One of my own personal favorite methods for strengthening the heart chakra is to use my imagination to draw pure light & color into the heart.  Any color can be used, whatever comes into your mind, although the more radiant and clear and pure the color is, the better.  It also helps to add sparkles!


  (Some people like to work with the "traditional"  heart chakra color of green or even pink when doing heart chakra meditations.  That is fine if that is what calls out to you!  However, I find that your own inner psychic will also sometimes show you OTHER colors that the heart chakra needs.) 


WATER is also very soothing and healing for the heart chakra.  I have many different kinds of magical and ceremonial cleansing baths that I do that aid in strengthening the entire chakra system, including the heart.  Although soemtimes when I don't have time for a longer cleansing baths, I just do something simple with a cleansing SHOWER by annointing myself with an essential oil or two before I get in (such as rose or lavender) and taking a few drops of flower essences (on the tongue or on the skin).  And of course, before I jump into a cleansing shower (or bath) I also do a prayer stating my intention to strengthen, heal and rebalance the heart chakra!  


Here's sommething really simple & quick you can do to help soothe and re-balance an overwhelmed heart chakra--just drink a glass of cool water.  If you would like, put in a few drops of flower essence.  (My favorites for this are my own Emergency Relief & Support formula, Lady of Roses formula, or any single essence I happen to have on hand that i really resonate with at the moment).  You can also put in a teaspoon of high quality rose water to help amplify the heart chakra soothing qualities of the water.  But even without the essences or rose water, just drinking a glass of cool water can work wonders for rebalancing and uplifting your heart chakra.  (Try it and see!) 


May you have a happy holiday season, and may you meet the new year with a strong and courageous heart!  Bright Blessings!

Mercury Retrograde--Dec 2017


The most adaptable will thrive!

Dear Friends, hello there and welcome to a new month!  Whenever we cross over into a new month, we don’t just cross a line on the calendar, but we also cross an energetic ley-line in the mind of the collective unconscious.  Regardless of what is going on astrologically in the new month ahead (and sure, there is plenty for this month!), we have just crossed a psychic threshold from one month to the next—which makes this a time of RENEWAL & REBIRTH for us all.  It can also be a good time for getting started on something new or planting new seeds for a higher vision--For whenever you cross a psychic threshold of any kind, there is an opportunity for laying new ground and planting new seeds.  This crossing over from one month to the next is a time of transition when you can more easily release what is behind you and open your heart to embrace the NEW BEGINNING.


Of course, the crossing over into a new month is not the only cosmic factor at work here.  Whenever one transitions from one month to the next, and especially when one is considering planting new seeds and setting goals for the month (or season or year) ahead, one should also take into account the current and impending astrological shifts. 


This month (Dec 2017), we are having Mercury retrograde, which in a way mitigates and slightly diminishes the “New Beginning” effect.  It’s harder to get things started when Mercury retrograde is in effect (harder, but not impossible) for its influence is one that says, “Take a step back and re-assess”.  Mercury retrograde is the OUTBREATH of the Universe, the great cosmic pause, the call to rest & renew.   It is also urges us to continue forward on paths already started, and to RE-SOLVE long standing problems and situations, and to RE-VISIT old friends and former sources of support.


If you can, in most cases it would be best to stay the course this month, going deeper with what you have already started—rather making any radical new decisions or trying to forge out on a brand new plan.  If you want to go ahead and start something new, you can, but do be prepared to be very PATIENT and know that things are most likely to unfold slowly and gradually.  Generally speaking, problems and issues don’t resolve themselves as quickly or easily as they usually do when Mercury is in retrograde—unless they are LONGSTANDING or OLD problems—then a resolution is likely to come through more quickly during Mercury Rx.  (It may not always be the resolution you want, but Mercury retrograde does bring old problems & issues up to the surface to be finally resolved & healed—sometimes in a pleasant way, sometimes not.)


          Keep reading below for exact Mercury retrograde DATES and more info about how you can survive and even THRIVE during this month’s Mercury retrograde period.


MERCURY RETROGRADE (Dec 3rd-Dec 22nd, post-storm until Dec 28th) 

  It is not the strongest of the species that survives, but rather, that which is most adaptable to change.  (Sometimes attributed to Charles Darwin)


In December 2017, we have Mercury going into retrograde pretty early on in the month.  As in, for those of us in the United States, Mercury goes retrograde on Sunday, December 3rd at 1:34 AM central time (that’s 2:34 AM Eastern time).  Of course, this is taking place in the middle of the night (at least, for those of us in the states), so basically, it is happening on SATURDAY night, since by the time we wake up on Sunday morning, it will have long since kicked in.  (And for those of you living in Europe and other parts, this retrograde will definitely be happening on Saturday proper for you.)


The important thing to keep in mind when dealing with any retrograde is that it doesn’t happen all at once, but instead happens gradually through a process that involves a couple of PRE retrograde shifts, including the pre-retrograde shadow and especially the pre-retrograde storm.  The pre-retrograde storm for this month’s Mercury retrograde already began back on Tuesday, November 28th.  In layperson’s terms, this basically means that the effects of the retrograde began to show themselves in a more obvious way then, about 4 ½ days BEFORE the retrograde technically begins.  In fact, many of you who are more sensitive to energy (or if you are just more sensitive to Mercury retrogrades) may have already been feeling the effects of Mercury retrograde since it entered its pre-retrograde SHADOW, back around November 15th.



And just what are the effects of Mercury retrograde?  Well to put it succinctly, miscommunications, delays, scheduling confusions and difficulties, travel and transportation problems, and all sorts of difficulties and snafus in the day-to-day aspects of life tend to increase significantly during Mercury retrograde.  That’s why this is a good time for slowing down, double-checking and taking your time to be EXTRA SURE that you are clear in your communications and planning.  It’s also a good idea to let go of rigid expectations and plans, and to be prepared to be extra FLEXIBLE and ADAPTABLE during the next few weeks of Mercury retrograde.  For no matter how well you plan or how prepared you are, the unexpected is likely to happen at least once or twice over the next few weeks.  So prepare to be flexible when it does!


Charles Darwin is sometimes quoted as having said, “It is not the strongest of the species that survives, but rather, that which is most adaptable to change.  Actually, Darwin probably really wasn’t the one who said this.  Nonetheless, it does summarize well the best strategy for surviving—and THRIVING—during Mercury retrograde.  In other words, how well you will do during any Mercury retrograde period, and how sane, centered, and happy you will be able to stay, has a DIRECT proportional relationship to how adaptable you can be when things change unexpectedly or don’t go the way you had hoped or planned.  Being flexible is important too.  But even more important than that, is being able to ADAPT and be decisive and make needed changes (sometimes at a moment’s notice) when chaos break out or things don’t go how you had originally anticipated.  The species that survives—and thrives—during Mercury retrograde is the species that is most adaptable to change!



(By the way, in case you are wondering about where the above original quote actually came from--the one that is usually attributed to Darwin--I have heard that the true source of this adaptability statement [or something similar to it] was a professor named Leon C. Megginson who lectured on Darwin’s work in 1963.)
