Mercury Retrograde May 27th--what does it mean?

On May 27th the planet Mercury is going retrograde, a phenomenon which signals not a good time to sign legal documents, start new projects—and you better check out all things mechanical from your air conditioner, computer and the automobile you depend on to get you from point A to B. Electricity is rules by Mercury so if you live in an ‘hotter than hell’ palazzo like I do in Sedona, tend to your air conditioner before you lose your cool. And no matter how ragged and rough Bubba or Wanda has become through your long and troubled marriage, stay put for a few weeks. Do not go to Judge Judy’s divorce court or get married in the Elvis Pressley chapel in Las Vegas under Mercury retrograde. Put off elective surgery—never rehab your house under these menacing Mercury times either.

Okay, so what can you do that can keep you out of trouble and lolling in the pink? It is a good time to review your financial red ink, do some spring cleaning—it’s okay to peruse your game plan and see where you need to plug holes or perhaps even start over. But wait for more fortuitous times to begin the make-over.

There is a cardinal rule in astrology that most of us break, but for those of you trained to live life on life’s terms—dot all i’s and cross your t’s—things begin to act like Mercury is in retrograde a week before it happens and even a week after Mercury goes direct in motion. That means you better start today to make adjustments in the areas I have mentioned above. Mercury goes direct on June 19th but you had better wait until June 26th to feel like your world is back on track and normal again.

And always remember the Gaulden Rule: Whatever you do, right or wrong, you must take responsibility for your actions. God is an equal opportunity Creator—it rains on the just and the unjust. When I am dealt lemons granny told me to make lemon meringue pies, and that I have done with the proof on my waist. But a little extra weight is better than getting resentments any day.

Ta, ta.

He is AUTHOR OF Clearing for the Millennium, �Signs and Wonders-Understanding the language of God and You're Not Who You Think You Are-A Breakthrough Guide to Discover your Authentic Self will be published by Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster in December of this year.

A member of the National Association of Transpersonal Psychology and the American Federation of Astrologers, Gaulden founded the Sedona Intensive, a personal growth and empowerment program, to help clients retrieve their authentic selves and tap into their inner power.

Gaulden coined the term astroanalysis-a combination of Jungian psychology and astrology-to describe how he helps free clients from compulsions, addictions, and unresolved issues, which keep them from living a life of peace and joy.

Albert saw things others didn't and heard what they couldn't from the age of two. When he was five he asked his mother why she seemed more like his dad and his dad more like the mother. As a pre-schooler he was tuned into the rich world of intuition and past lives even though he had no one to shepherd him through these recollections and recalls. At Birmingham-Southern he click connected with the unique psychological work and world of Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung and his take on the shadow self. Gaulden believes that all-seeing and all-knowing is born within a child and it is the false and mundane world that erases his memory of what is really true. The integration of the divided self, putting one back together through a conscious fusion with his or her shadow is the underpinning of his work in the Sedona Intensive.

Albert studied with renowned astrology Byrd Knapp, Darrell Harris and Katharine de Jersey, as well as took Awareness Classes with Lee Jones at the Spiritualist Church in Los Angeles in the 70's, and attended the Corrado Academy of Perception in 1978 which led to his meeting actor John Travolta using the tools of manifestation learned at the Academy, and selling John El Adobe de Tajiguas, a 35-acre estate that abutted Ronald Reagan's ranch near Gaviota Beach in Southern California.

Gaulden worked in 1986 with international-best selling author of The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield in Albert's innovative and one-of-a-kind personal empowerment program, the Sedona Intensive, which he founded in 1982. Albert was hired to use his gifts as an astro-intuitive to help cast Redfield's movie of The Celestine Prophecy.

Gaulden travels the world to teach and speak and finds Egypt particularly one of the most intriguing countries in the world. In December he will be returning with a tour group of clients and friends to the Land of the Nile and Pharaohs and the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Sphinx and other ancient digs and monuments in Upper and Lower Egypt.

His clients include sports figures, actors, royalty, Wall Street executives, men and women and young people from all walks of life who are eager to face those defects of character that keep them from being who they really are. He rigorously maintains the anonymity of his clients.

Additionally, Gaulden is a motivational speaker on such popular themes as "Mr. Right is Usually Mr. Wrong-Falling in Love With Make-Believe", "Take Your Power Back", "The Power of a Great Idea", the Death of Terror and the Rebirth of Bliss, �"Why Relationships Don't Work but How They Can" and many other provocative topics.
