The Phoenix rises again

Mercury retrograde is in full effect and will be through November 20th. It’s a time that scares many, a time to chalk up things to this very event saying “no wonder.” But it doesn’t always have to be bad. Maybe it can be used to raise awareness, to bring your attention to it so you can make better choices for yourself. Maybe you haven’t felt happy and are looking for an opportunity. Maybe this is such a time.

  • Confront your deepest and most private emotions
  • Communications feels like it’s written in secret codes, don’t worry you have the cypher key.
  • You’ll have a need to expose truths
  • You may feel more paranoid and suspicious than normal
  • You may feel jealousy even if it’s uncharacteristic for you
  • It’s a chance to correct mistakes from the past
  • Work on letting petty issues go
  • You’ll be more physic than normal. Trust your gut!
  • Spend extra time in meditation and grounding your energy
  • It’s a great time for your comeback story! The Phoenix rises again!
  • Makeover time! Self, home, life, or career. Reinvent yourself.


Who am I, and why I write. I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one. I am the one, holding on to the silver lining when the skies are gray. I’m a believer that nothing is coincidence, but that everything has purpose. I’ve made my mistakes, don’t we all, but I see them as growing pains and they are a part of who I am today. I have lost myself in order to find myself, and I still do from time to time, but in a good way. I’m a big child who laughs until my belly hurts when life wants to be serious. Career wise: I’ve been there, done that, and I took “The jump” off the hamster wheel in an effort to change my future. I didn’t land all that soft, but I can say that I’m still proud to have found the courage to do it. Coming full circle, I had it all, and yet I was lonely and had nothing. Today I choose to be a collector of moments and I chase memories, instead of the material stuff. Less is more, and the motto is quality over quantity. You’d be amazed at how freeing it can be. I see myself as a free spirit that believes in an unconventional lifestyle. Somehow I go against the grain most of the times, not to rebel, but because it feels right to stay true to my unique and authentic self. It takes courage, and you often stand alone, but if you dare, you soon realize that it is the only way if you don’t want to lose who you are. Just like most, my past wasn’t easy and I come from a life that didn’t always give me the opportunity to be heard. Few related and even fewer cared to take the time. But that’s the past and it’s history, the future hasn’t happened and the “NOW” is truly all we ever have. In the end we all have a story to tell, and we all seek to be understood. We all yearn to be heard and accepted and still life is hard and our path is full of stumbling blocks. If we can see the lessons in adversity we may realize that the toughest moments are often our greatest teachers. There is a reason for the saying that the stars can’t shine without darkness, and it might be darkness that will show you the light.
It took a series of (un)fortunate events, to learn to glow through the pain, to learn how to dance in the rain. I believe in Magic and wonder, and the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. As an empath this old soul often feels a little too much, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Today, I am here to tell my story because I believe that it can help others. It is my hope to bring inspiration and strengths to you, while showing you that it can be done. I know you are out there, and I know you are suffering in silence. I am here to tell you that you are not alone, and your voice is being heard loud and clear. Hang on and be strong, transformation is yours. 
In light and love....Rhapsody Bohème 💙🦋

  1. Thanks for sharing this post, Rhapsody 🙂
    My knowledge is limited about Astrology, even if I do know something. The things, as you mention here sound much like my life at the moment. All in all preparing for a new beginning, which I’m looking forward to, specially when I will be able to see more light than now.
    I hope this time will bring you clearance too, dear friend, as I can imagine, that you have much to consider about your life and future too.
    Much love and light to you ❤
