Tattoos, piercings, and body modification account for a nearly one-billion-dollar industry. But are these practices being adopted by mainstream society as a bold form of self-expression or could it be motivated by a profound link to our ancestors? By studying these human hieroglyphs, might we uncover extraordinary secrets?
Mercury Retrograde, beginning October 31st, 2019 and ending on
November 20th, 2019 be a little more intense than the other
retrogrades of Mercury we experienced earlier in the year? Well, for one, it comes at a very auspicious
time in the Wheel of the Year, Samhain.
the greater sabbat of the dead. Samhain, also known as Halloween, is considered
by most Pagans and Wiccans to be the most important of the four greater
sabbats. It is generally observed on October 31st in the Northern Hemisphere,
starting at sundown. The old Sun King is dead, and the Crone Goddess mourns him
greatly during the next six weeks. While the veil between the worlds is
thinnest, those who have died in the past year and those who are to be
reincarnated pass through. This is a time to celebrate the lives of those who
have passed on. It is seen as a festival of darkness, which is balanced at the
opposite point of the wheel by the spring festival of Beltane.
keep in mind that Mercury is the planet the rules over communication, contracts,
messages, electrical things, and travel. We often overlook our LARGEST, MOST
INTRICATET electrical component which is our own energy field. Yes, my
friend, this particular retrograde will set your own intuition and ESP on fire.
You seem to just know things, sense who will do what next, and experience lucid
dreams where messages from the other side come in loud and clear. This
retrograde exposes secrets and digs for the truth.
The shadow phase
of this particular retrograde began on October 11th,2019 and the retreating
shadow finally ends on December 7, 2019 therefore giving us plenty of time to
be truth seekers. Mercury going retrograde through Scorpio, which is the sign
closest to the underworld, creates the perfect storm to sense what lies in the
shadows and also your own shadow side. This is the time to purge people, situations,
jobs, habits, and old patterns that keep you from moving forward.
Scorpio digs through the hidden layers of reality and knows things on an
instinctive, nonverbal level. Your detective-like mind will see through phony people,
hidden clauses in contracts, and illusionary reality. You may be operating
through your shadow side and be more cynical, dark and unflinchingly honest which
is sure to shock others during this retrograde.
Below is how
each sign may experience this particular retrograde and if you know your rising
sign it will prove to be a more accurate assessment of what lurks in the
shadows during the last phase of the Wheel of the Year.
Aries-Mercury retrograding through your 8th
house will bring issues with debts, money owed, taxes, and sex to light. Check
all figures carefully before making any payments and look over terms for all of
your insurance policies. Read the small print. Careful with risky
relationships-cheaters will get caught. Are you sure you want to post that
picture on Facebook or Instagram? If you have a feeling it will cause trouble
you are most likely correct.
Taurus-Your 7th house of
partnerships, friendships, lawyers, marriage, and yes, open enemies are the
focus. Careful not to get caught up in a web of gossip because a friend can
quickly become a major frenemy. Read all text before sending because
someone may get a message meant for another. You like your privacy but you may
not have as much of it as you like over the next few weeks.
Gemini-Your analytical mind, day to day, activities
health, public servants, old loves and pets are all areas that are touched by
Mercury going through your 6th house. You have a quick mind since
you are ruled by the day side of Mercury which also makes you a little too
curious. Resist the urge to show your hand to a sneaky individual. You’ll have
your moment of truth.Let
old lovers go. Focus on revisiting your
diet and health regime. Pay your parking tickets, take your pet for a vet
check, and check all messages before you hit “send.”
Cancer-Romance, love affairs, entertainment, children, and the gambles
that you take all come into focus during this Mercury retrograde in your 5th
house. An old flame from the past may look you up but ask yourself, “What do
they want? What’s their agenda? Fleeting romances are just that-fleeting.
Manipulative ways of both yours and others are now easily detected. If
you deal with children you may find them to be more secretive and hidden. Use
creative persuasion instead of harsh judgement when seeking the truth in all matters.
Intuition is high.
Leo- What the hell is going on at home?
Mercury retrograde in Scorpio, your 4th house of home, family, and
the end of the matter, gives you the intuition to get to the root of the
problem. Your outspoken nature will pull the curtain back on what has been
hidden. Self-care is important now so keep your boundaries. Know where you stop
and others begin. If you are getting necessary repairs done in the home get
written guarantees or wait until after December 7th to get work done.
You may be dealing with a lot of endings but on the bright side there is an
open pathway for new beginnings.
Virgo-You are ruled by the night side of
Mercury, the side that usually sees the glass as half empty. This Mercury
retrograde will touch your 3rd house of siblings, communication,
social activities and neighbors. Don’t be surprised if you hear a voice from
the past and find out a long-hidden secret. Check your junk folder because you
don’t want to miss an important message from someone who has been thinking of
you. Don’t over analyze everything like you usually do but rather go with your
gut instincts. Watch your communications and don’t play mind games or you may
Libra-Your 2nd house of money, possessions,
and things you value are touched by Mercury retrograding through Scorpio. Did
you misplace something of value or did someone take it? Careful when making
large purchases because the worth of the item my be grossly overstated. Lenders
attract borrower so during this retrograde choose to be neither. Remember to
lock your doors and car during this time because Mercury retrograde in Scorpio
operates in the shadows. Loss through theft is possible. Check all information
before getting in that Uber or Lyft.
Scorpio-Time to call out those who have
stabbed you in the back. You knew it all along but in true Scorpio manner you were
waiting for the opportune time to sting. Apologies are worthless if they aren’t
sincere. The truth flows from your mouth and you let others know that you aren’t
easily manipulated nor do you forget a slight. You mind is intense and what you
project hits the bullseye so retreat into the bowls of your private nature and
reframe your actions before throwing the final blow. Reconnect with those who
truly know you and leave the sludge by the side. You get the last laugh.
Sagittarius- Did you get caught with your foot
in your mouth? Careful that you don’t repeat something said in confidence
because it will come back to haunt you. Time to give closure to who or what
hurts you. Memories of departed loved ones are very
strong as Mercury retrogrades through your 12th house so don’t be surprised
when you get a message from someone on the other side. Pay attention, the
Universe has a message for you. Your dreams are lucid.
Capricorn-Mercury retrograding through your 11th
house puts focus on the groups you are affiliated with, social awareness, and the
immediate results that come from your career. Use your intuition when evaluating
your hopes and dreams. You want change but also need the security of structure.
Rethink your main objectives and reconnect with influential people or
influencers who can help further you along in achieving your desired results.
Be careful not to cut off those who have always had your back. Time to release
that person who is like a ball and chain and keeps you from achieving your
goals. You clearly see through them during this retrograde.
Aquarius -Your career, long term goals,
reputation, and status are the focus during Mercury retrograding though your 10th
house. You have made a name for yourself and don’t be surprised if a former
employer wants you back. You love gadgets and technology but as we know, Mercury
retrogrades play havoc with such things and frustration can set in when they
get temporarily zapped while Mercury skips backwards through Scorpio. You can
lose your shit especially if you have a work project due. Triple check all
plans, reservations, and commitments. Careful of a parent, boss, or snotty
client who attempts to stir the pot. You sense a trouble maker before they even
open their mouth.
Pisces-You are a natural generator for
anything spiritual. Mercury retrograding through your 9th house
fires up your higher mind. Now is the time to reflect on your philosophies
about life, past lives, and your purpose in life. You may feel compelled to
start journaling again or revisit a manuscript you have been kicking around. The
9th house also brings in-laws into focus and Mercury retrograding in
Scorpio will let you delve deeper into those relationships. Some Pisces may
have dealings with people in foreign places. Has one of your posts, blogs, or
other media endeavors reached far and beyond your home base? You are in
manifestation mode so be mindful of your thoughts.
there have been a rash of tourist deaths at Dominican Republic resorts,
immediately following resort stays —all within the past year. The media
attention to the deaths of these visitors led me to look at the astrological
chart of the Dominican Republic. What current astrological transits and
indicators point the way and give insight to these sudden deaths and to the
numerous others who fell dangerously ill while vacationing at the island’s
the years people have died or got sick while on vacation in the Dominican
Republic but currently the media attention is tightly focused on this island.
There are many unanswered questions such as why some visitors to the Dominican
dodged death but instead fell dangerously ill. Some vacationers reported a
weird “chemical smell” and others reported that they became ill after having a
drink from the hotel room’s minibar.
federal US authorities are investigating these numerous rash deaths to see if
they can figure out what is going on. Maybe astrology can help figure it out.
Many questions need to be answered such as, do US citizens mostly fall victim,
are visitors from countries other than the US, getting sick or dying, and who
or what are perpetrating this unfortunate situation for the Dominican Republic,
an island who depends on tourism.
tourist can die while on vacation but I particularly wanted to see what aspects
are currently putting the Dominican Republic in the public eye.
I am going
to keep the analysis of the Dominican Republic’s chart simple yet very
foretelling since some readers may not be familiar with the more intricate
astrological aspects and terminology.
Below is the
birth chart for the Dominican Republic showing the planetary transits at the
time of this writing (June 29,2019) in order to get a view of the situation
currently going on.
data for the Dominican Republic is gives as August 4,1496 at 9:19 AM, Santo
Domingo, DR. The country is a Leo Sun (12 Leo 18) sign with Libra (3 Libra 6)
rising. This indicates a proud country, a beautiful island Venus ruled (Libra
rising) full with the sound is local music, and a place for romantic vacations
The Sun in
Leo is in the Eleventh house and within an orb of 7 degrees of Mars (5Leo35)
also in the sign of Leo This indicates a country that is very passionate and
also competitive. Since the Eleventh house rules group activities, it is
evident that the Dominican Republic has produced a number of outstanding
baseball players and talented people.
Mars configuration is in opposition to Uranus (12 Aquarius 3), in the Fifth
house of pleasure, vacation seekers, lovers, and creative outlets. Uranus is a
very unpredictable planet that brings surprises and unique experiences. It can
also be disruptive
at this writing, we see that Uranus, the ruler of the Dominican’s Fifth house
is transiting through Taurus, which is the Eighth house of death, and debt This
can account for the probability that quick, sudden, deaths of an unusual cause
are now plaguing pleasure seeking visitors to the Dominican more so now than
house being Taurus, is Venus ruled. Venus is all about finance, the finer
things in life and love. It also rules the Dominican’s Libra ascendant. The
visit by disruptive Uranus to this portion of the Dominican’s chart also shows
how there is most likely financial upsets due to the decrease in tourism
because of the string of highly publicized recent deaths.
house also holds Chiron, (27 Taurus 59) showing where one is wounded. Chiron is
besieged meaning that it is between Algol (26 Taurus 10) a fixed star that
often shows up in disastrous accidents with death. Situated on the other side
of Chiron is Alcyone (00 Gemini 00), a fixed star noted in astrology for its
association with deep sorrows tragedies, and bereavements. Most likely in about
four or five years, Uranus moving closer to Chiron and the fixed stars may set
off another set of misfortune especially since the eclipses on the Aries Libra
axis (ascendant/descendant) of the Dominican Republic will come into play. We
can see how Uranus transiting through the Eighth house may unsettle things
until it finally exits in 2016.
eclipse on July 2,2019 is (10 Cancer 38)
so technically in The Dominican’s Ninth
house (foreigners, travelers) and although the orb of the eclipse is roughly 7
degrees away from the Tenth house MC (reputation and how you are seen in the
world) what is more notable is that the eclipse is opposite Neptune (6
Capricorn 5)in the Dominican’s Fourth
house (the home, the grave). Neptune is
associated on the positive side with beauty, illusion, and the subtle nuances
of a dreamy life but is currently wobbled by the Solar eclipse on July 2,2019.
negative side Neptune indicates drowning, asphyxiation, gas, poisons, and
drugs. It is also associated with mysterious deaths and disappearances. Currently both Saturn and Pluto, two tough
planets are transiting The Dominican Republic’s Fourth house. This brings about
tragedy and disillusionment. Saturn represents government and also heavy
burdens. Pluto is a bully. the underworld. It is death, power, and control.
This hard-edged transit of both Saturn and Pluto to the Fourth house of the
Dominican Republic can filter into one thinking about who or what is currently
stirring the pot affecting not only tourism but also threatening the powers
the Sixth house of the Dominican Republic, Neptune (18 Pisces 43r) is currently
not only transiting this house but there is also a direct conjunction with the
Vertex (18 Pisces 27). The Vertex is a mathematical point in the chart. As an
astrological point, it is connected with karma and fate, and it functions when
triggered by planet transits and in this case, we are looking at Neptune. Since
Neptune is currently retrograde one may assume that these suspicious deaths may
not be over.
house encompasses health, sanitary conditions, civil servants, local
and inferiors. Could some group irresponsibly not be abiding by proper sanitary
measures? Remember Neptune is associated with deadly chemicals, drugs, alcohol,
and suspicious deaths. Neptune also rules hidden things and hidden enemies.
This gives some clues as to what is behind the rash of tourist deaths currently
going on in the Dominican Republic.
looking at the chart for the Dominican Republic and the current planetary
transits I can’t help but wonder if there is some covert bully group out to
undermine the tourist resorts unless a price is paid. Just my thoughts.
astrological chart for either a country, person, or event holds tons on
knowledge and clues to how the potential, probabilities of planetary energy
play out. I focused in on just some very basic, obvious astrological markers so
as not to write a small book on the visitor deaths on the Dominican Republic.
As a caveat please note that the visitors who
died or fell ill while visiting the island may have had markers in their
astrological charts that indicated these unfortunate events. Without knowing
the birth data for each visitor who died or became ill an astrologer can assume
that when the birth chart of the visitor is analyzed against the astrological
chart of the Dominican, certain conditions, such as death or illness may be
indicated.Also, a relocation chart for
the visitor (basically a birth chart drawn up to describes astrological
influences of any locality based on your natal chart can be helpful when
planning vacations, visits, business traveling, or relocating.Primarily I am looking not so much into each
visitor who became seriously ill or died but rather at the Dominican Republic,
an island knows for tourism
is no denying that tattoos have a certain type of energy. They not only hint at
your daring side, but also open a portal into the dimensions of your soul.
of years ago, ancient indigenous cultures recognized a deep connection to the
cosmos, nature, and the realm of spirit as evidenced in their art, symbols,
metaphorical myths, and their use of tattoos. These venerable cultures weren’t
superstitious, they were enlightened. Their close relationship with the spirit
world wasn’t muted by religious dogma, or overshadowed by technology. It was a
true and pure authentic connection that very few cultures maintain today. They
knew there was a mystical connection in art and symbols and an even more
profound magic in creating and adorning themselves with tattoos. Images that
were put on the skin represented an embodiment that linked directly to consciousness.
Tattoos told stories, encouraged healing, empowered the wearer, and tapped into
the hidden realms of the spirit. Tattoos were and still are powerful symbols
that speak the cryptic language of the soul.
tattooing can be a vehicle for self-empowerment. When you decide to get a
tattoo, you are also taking part in a potent blood ritual that opens your inner
pathways to self-awareness. Getting a tattoo takes you well beyond just
capturing an image on your body; it also stirs up the emotional cellular memory
that lies beneath your skin. You are crossing a threshold and making a
commitment to an inked-on symbol that you not only outwardly wear but also
might be thinking it’s just a little symbol or a cool image but believe me:
your tattoo holds volumes of inner information. The symbols in themselves
represent an archetype – or possibly your shadow – that is pulled forth through
the decorative tattoo portals you place on your body. It can mean that
something deep inside of you wants to be outwardly expressed. Alternatively,
your consciousness is calling for something to be added so you can embody the
energy and power represented by the image you decide to ink.
are usually synchronized to events in your life that come from an emotional
connection to an experience, a dream, an inner urge, or a certain something or
someone. When you ink an image onto your body, you are embodying the vibration
of the symbol’s meaning, the color, the transference of energy between you and
the tattooist, and even the qualities of the ink. Combined, they’re a personal
form of alchemy. Tattooing beyond the sake of vanity can initiate your own
shamanic journey into your consciousness, to reveal what’s hidden in the matrix
of the body, mind, and spirit.
don’t have to be tattooed with sacred geometric symbols or tribal motifs in
order to tap into the mysterious meaning of tattoos. Even your silly or dark
tattoos have very profound personal meanings and hold within them a type of
magic that actively interacts with your own energy field and the areas on your
body that store emotional memory. For example, a tattoo on your neck relates to
where your thoughts and emotions come together. What tattoo image is conveying
that message for you? Tattoos on your arms and hands tap into the area on your
body that holds emotions in relation to your external world, and shows what you
embrace. Who, or what, are you holding on to? Or, what do you want to let go?
Tattoos may even wake up some past life memory that needs healing or possibly
reveal a profound message for you in this lifetime.

tattoo on your body and it becomes a sentient image and a portal into your
In the book, Conscious Ink, you will see some very compelling examples of how tattoos
precipitated a healing, opened the doors to recognizing profound knowledge, and
symbolically represented and activated the embodiment of an intended desire. Ah
ha…that brings me to intention. Conscious Ink is about tattooing with intention. An intention behind getting a
tattoo gives you more focus and control over the hidden magic in your ink. Once
you realize that tattoos create an energy exchange with the physical and subtle
bodies, you will most likely disengage from the standard opinion that
classifies tattoos as merely body art. There is a very cool, supernatural side
to tattoos, and they are an unequivocal vehicle for transformation and
isn’t a tattoo image picture book, nor is it a tattoo history book. It is all
about looking at tattoos through the lens of consciousness, the term we loosely
call spiritual. After all, tattooing
is a sacred art, rich in symbolism, ritual, and mysticism. You will come to
understand the importance of intention, the vibration of colors, and how body
placement all mix with your subtle body energy field to create a permanent body
talisman for better or worse. They are spiritual birthmarks, or soul prints,
that are markers along your path to wholeness.
tattoo should invoke an inner need for you to wear it and make a commitment to
its permanency. This feeling of need is a sure sign that your tattoo has a
hidden message for you. Since symbols and images relate to archetypes and the
elements of creation (fire, earth, air, water, and ether), you’ll get a
fascinating understanding of how you can create the desired direction of your
tattoo’s efficacy. Tattoos can be seen as vectors for your soul’s journey and
the symbols act as the trajectories for both the input and output of energy.

consciousness that will remain from lifetime to lifetime as cellular memory.
All the more reason to be cognizant of the hidden power held within tattoos. In
this book, you will become familiar with the different types of body work and
vibrational healing modalities that help you transmute the energy from a
regrettable tattoo. You’ll also learn how to maintain the sacred space on your
body that holds your tattoo portal.
ink reflects the never-ending cyclical motif of death and rebirth. Tattoos are
imbued with a mystical, transformative energy that births new ideals and
resurrects long held memories, even some from prior lifetimes. Getting a tattoo
initiates a change that ripples throughout every layer of your being, from
spiritual to physical and vice versa Tattoos signify that you have crossed a
threshold, a personal rite of passage that brings you to a different level of
awareness. Your ink has a multidimensional, quantum, existential quality that
can’t be denied.
are still deciding on whether to get a tattoo, my guess is that you will be
making an appointment to get inked by the time you finish this book. I am
inviting you to cross the threshold into the world of body art to explore the
intimate, symbolic language of your spirit that is mysteriously veiled within tattoos.
Looking at tattoos as a way to view the emergence of your soul is a new concept that has ancient roots in man’s once-close association with the realm of spirit. Emotional energies become incarnate through tattoo symbols. Your inked images are the interpreters between the seen and unseen realms that we quantumly exist in at all times. Understanding your tattoos beyond the ink is a bit like learning a new language because nothing is what it appears to be on the surface. There is always the deeper meaning attached to some emotion or memory. Tattoos and the symbols you embody can be powerful tools for accessing self-knowledge. Your ink can initiate an inner healing, mark a transition in your life, and be a creative outlet for authentic self-expression.
Tattoo art, symbols, and even the light and dark of the colors used for shading, are actually a mirror of your inner world. Tattoos reflect your inner architecture and current mindset as you move through life. The art and symbols can best be understood if you approach them the way you would the metaphors in a poem. In poetry, symbolic language captures the deeper essence of an unspoken idea or feeling.
Tattoo images and symbols may appear to be easily defined visually. For example, say you got a tattoo of a turtle. To the eye the image of a turtle appears as an animal but this symbol connects into your consciousness and reveals a deeper message. The turtle represents patience, longevity, inner wisdom, and home. It connects to the wisdom of your inner Sage archetype. Its expression is even further realized by looking at the part of the body that carries the emotional energy expressed through this tattoo image. The turtle symbol makes you ask: Where do I have to slow down, where do I need patience? Once that part of you receives the information, shifts in your consciousness occur at a deeper level. You didn’t know that the turtle image already answered your questions. In an intuitive way, the image inspired you to begin to start considering ways to approach your problem. By realizing your connection to the energy of the image you are able to access the hidden knowledge in your consciousness. This can bring about synchronistic events where things begin to line up to provide you with much needed guidance and answers. You begin to see that everything is connected.
Tattoo images and symbols are a way to connect with your consciousness and explore the hidden yet vital knowledge of yourself that brings about wholeness. Clues come forward in your tattoos that reveal emerging sides of you, often through the images, symbols, and colors you choose to imprint on your body. They are the materialized form of what is held in the realms of consciousness. They represent your archetypes and inner guidance. Explore the adjectives that best describe your tattoos, and how these qualities may currently be active or emerging in your approach to life.
