What Is Mercury Retrograde?

What Is Mercury Retrograde?
Three times a year, the planet Mercury goes "retrograde." Of course, the planet isn't really going backwards, but this illusion can still cause our best laid plans to go awry.

Mercury is the planet that rules communication. When Mercury is retrograde, communication can fall apart. 

Since most of our modern world is ruled by technology, there can be some really annoying things that go wrong. Emails can go missing, computers can crash, phone messages can be missed and so on.

Travel is often affected as well from delays to lost documents. Contracts can be misread. Legal work may be complicated.

Some people aren't affected by Mercury at all, or might be affected differently during different retrogrades. It depends on where the planets lay in the birth chart. Some people are supercharged during a Mercury Retrograde because of their charts. 

Mercury Retrograde doesn't have to feared but if you're aware of it, you can choose to make prudent and cautious decisions during this time.

What Can You Do?
The best thing you can do is take a deep breath and find your patience. Some signs are better able to cope with frustrating situations than others. Whatever you do, don't jump to conclusions.

During a Mercury Retrograde, there are many opportunities to misinterpret events or circumstances. Don't rush into any legal binding contracts, don't buy or sell anything if you don't have to, and be sure you have all the facts before making decisions. Avoid people who are picking fights or pushing you into decisions you aren't ready to make.

There are plenty of opportunities to be irritated from blowing out your tire to waiting forever for a travel delay. Try to laugh it off and blame Mercury. What happens, happens and if you've been doing your best, than just chillax and deal with whatever needs to be done.

Don't sign contracts. Double-check documents. Don't believe quick-talking salesmen. "If it seems to good to be true, it probably is," is the quote of the hour.

Allow extra time for travel. Check everything from passports to itinerary and everything else connected with the trip. 

Avoid buying products with warranties.

Keep your car under repair. 

Cool Things About Mercury Retrograde
Instead of losing your mind during a retrograde, use these vibrations to your advantage. 

Some people become very intuitive. They are able to trust their gut instinct more and are more open to following their inner guides. 

The energy is right for self-reflection. Looking back on the past can unlock some secrets you've been hiding from yourself. 

Expect coincidences. I myself don't believe in coincidences. There's a reason for running into someone randomly even if it doesn't seem obvious at the time. There's a reason why you read a post on Facebook only to have a TV show that you have on in the background say the exact same word as you're reading it on the screen. 

The universe is all about connections and some may not be obvious. However, during a Mercury Retrograde, some of these so-called coincidences may be more frequent and may make some sort of sense in the big picture. 

There's no point in getting stressed out about things beyond your control. You can open yourself up by meditating in a quiet place. Lighting a candle and incense can help set the mood. 

Take a shower or a bath. Let the water soothe you. Imagine it's the water of your unconscious washing through you or soaking into you. Let your mind wander.

Take a yoga class. Conversely, taking a zumba class, boxing, or lifting weights may help work through some of that stress so that you can relax better later on. 

Go for a long walk. Really see your neighbourhood. Watch the clouds and find patterns. Look for faces in trees. Imagine the world from the eyes of a baby in a stroller. 

Candle Game
You can play a game with a candle which might distract you from your everyday stress. 

You may wish to burn incense while doing this as well. 

You can use any candle color you like. White is likely the best for this sort of thing.

Use the candle in an open area. You may wish to keep a cup of water handy or a bowl of sand, just in case. Watch for curtains, children, plants, shelving, papers, and flammable nearby knick-knacks.

Light a candle.

If you are in a chair, keep your feet flat on the floor to ground you. If you're sitting on the floor, keep your spine straight to keep the energy flowing.

First, close your eyes and clear your mind.

Imagine the candle in front of you and the flame. 

Open your eyes.

Imagine the flame growing higher.

Imagine the flame shrinking small. 

Imagine it flickering.

You may find that you are making the candle flame move by the energy you emit when you focus. 

If you find the candle is seemingly obeying you, try asking it simple "yes" and "no" questions.

Before you begin your question, ask the candle to "show" you a "yes."

Do the same for "no."

Ask your questions!

This sort of game can help you hone your concentration skills while getting your mind off your problems. 

Use a snuffer to douse the candles. Never blow out a candle. You can start a fire, spill wax, and worse, you blow out all of the energy you just spent all that time manifesting! 

You can show your gratitude for your candle magic experience by thanking the Universe or saying a prayer of your choice.

Be certain your candle and incense are safely extinguished when you leave the room. After all, Mercury IS Retrograde!

Tarotscopes: What Are They?

Over the past few years, Tarotpaths has presented both monthly and daily Tarotscopes videos on YouTube and Instagram.

Tarotscopes are created by pulling a card or several cards. The meaning of the card is combined with astrology to create the Tarotscope.

 I've had my Tarotscopes published in many places over the past twenty years. Some years, I've been paid for writing daily scopes for magazines and websites. Some years, I've provided unique monthly scopes. I've created general, romantic, erotic, bisexual, gay, fetish, and career scopes for numerous clients.

In 2015, I will continue to provide my monthly Tarotscopes for free on Youtube. I will continue to post my almost daily free Aquarius scopes on Instagram.

If you would like to order personalized Tarotscopes for your website, magazine, web-series, T.V. show, or any other media, contact: sephgiron @

If you want to order your own personal daily, monthly, or yearly Tarotscope by email, or Skype, find out more at sephgiron @

Have a blessed and safe Holiday Season.

Halloween Tarot Readings by Email

As we go through life, we have questions about what lies in store.

Sometimes a tarot reading or other form of divination can provide clues to the energies we're likely to encounter.

A tarot reading can bring clarity to a problem, providing another way of viewing the situation.

Sometimes we discover blocks within ourselves that we weren't aware of or if we were aware of them, we have new tools to break through them, navigate past them, rise above them, steer clear of them...

It can be reassuring to know that someone we thought was misusing his power really is.

It can be reassuring to discover that we have more power and intuition than we realized.

A tarot reading isn't a matter of a tarot reader solving  your problem, your life, manifesting money, or finding you a lover. 

A tarot reading is an opportunity for you to experience self-awareness, to grow and learn from  your past experiences, to understand how you can use your own life skills to tackle an obstacle life has for you.

See what the tarot says about you today!

Special Halloween reading is $25 for one question and includes a personality profile. Please include your birthdate and that of anyone else you're asking about if you know it (ie. for a love reading).

Payment is required in advance to paypal under sephgiron

Please allow 12 - 48 hours for your email reading.

If you ever have any questions about my tarot services, please email me at any time at

I've been reading tarot professionally for nearly twenty years and no question is too weird or crazy for me!

Blessed be.

Insane Asylum, College Campus, Halloween Haunt: This place has it all!

Ah Powerhouse of Terror, how well I remember you.

It was a freezing cold October night as I waited in line. Since I was alone, I had no one to share my growing anxiety with but luckily there was an outside show with magicians and such. This was very clever planning from the organizers' point of view.

I don't really remember specifically which attractions they had since I've been to so many of these types of places and I keep my eyes shut most of the time. I hate going into haunted houses, as in the amusement park variety. Even as a kid, I hated them. I always go in and do the experience, but it's not my favourite thing. 
However, aside from the gory Halloween getups, beyond that, I had that chill. The one I occasionally get that in my interpretation means that there is something electrical around me. Spirit? Fuse box?

That creeped me out more than anything. Especially in the women's washroom which was full of ladies adjusting their costumes.There's a vibe.

The lake?

The generators?

I don't know.

The other day I decided to go over to see what was going on at the Powerhouse of Terror these days. Right now, it's part of Humber college curriculum. You can see how they've transformed the old buidlings into new buidlings for teaching and living.

What's interesting about the Humber college south campus is that it is rather new. When I was in university, it was a film production house for shows such as Street Legal.

Before that, it was an insane asylum.

I decided to go right to the Powerhouse of Terror as I continue to call it, though it hasn't been one in a while, and sit on the side stairs so that I wouldn't ruin pictures of the many people who drove by to take a shot. The doors were locked so I couldn't enter the building.

Before I sat on the stairs, I noticed a toad sitting by the wall. He let me take his picture.

I sat with my K2 meter for about an hour, seeing what I could see in broad afternoon outside of the building. Mr. Toad sat near me the whole time.

This is the view sitting on the steps looking out.

These are the steps I sat on.
My findings are that there is definitely something worth investigating further.

And I will.

The building must have a special kind of mirrored glass on it. This makes for cool picture taking.

When taking a picture such as this, there is no way to know what the camera is going to pick up until after the fact. 

I'm standing outside the building taking pictures into the building. Kind of cool, eh?

I'll be going back to the campus again. I've been there a few times over the years for various employment opportunities and will likely be going back for more. In the meantime, on a nice summer day, I may pop back over again to see what the spirits have to say.

Speaking of haunted Canadian campuses, that reminds me of a great horror anthology where all the stories take place guessed it...a college campus.

My story, "Can You See the Real Me?" is set on the thirteenth floor of a residence building at York University. In real life, yes I really did live on the thirteenth floor of residence for two years.

The book, Campus Chills, is edited by Mark Leslie and can be found in print and in eBook format on most platforms.

Have you had any paranormal experiences on a university or college campus?

Live from the Lizzie Borden House July 2014

In July 2013, The Supernatural Radio Show on Blogtalk Radio and hosted by Corrine De Winter, came to the Lizzie Borden House.

On July 20, 2014, The Supernatural Radio will return to the Lizzie Borden House. Sèphera and Lisa will once again attempt to communicate with the spirits of Lizzie, Andrew, Michael, Abby, and whoever else wants to come through the portal.

Listen to last year's show. Stay tuned for this year's show information!
