Starting Another Ghost Journey

So, I’m obsessed with metaphysical things once again. It’s actually something that kind of always sticks with me, but I go through phases where it’s a bit more of a serious obsession. Like this time, I went all out. I bought an digital voice recorder and a ghost scanner. I tried them each once and that was it.

I’ve been watching the Dead Files and some other shows all the time. I’m looking into different apps, but I’m reading a lot about how they aren’t very reliable. I’m considering a FLIR or maybe a REM Pod, but I’m just not sure yet. I should be good then I think. Maybe.

Then I did some google searching. I asked how to communicate with the dead. I clicked on the WikiHow result, which was last updated recently in 2021. They got into the basics, so I didn’t learn very much, besides maybe how to fine tune a few things. It explains how to use a mirror, a flashlight, and more.

I then ventured to Encyclopedia.com, updated possibly early 2000’s. I learned that “Before the ties were severed to psychics in 1996, the CIA and various U.S. Defense Department intelligence agencies spent $20 million in an effort to turn psychics into spy satellites.”

After that, I wandered over to The Library of Congress and read “Communicating with the Dead: Can the Unknown be Regulated?”. It’s an article about different Acts in the UK against communicating with the dead. The first one was in 1517, which said that anyone engaging in witchcraft would be punished by death.

While it was a bit interesting, none of this is what I needed. I’ll try the DVR and SBox again and see what happens.


Mercury Retrograde 2021

Every year I check the Old Farmers Almanac for the upcoming Mercury Retrograde dates. I make a note of them, then keep it somewhere I can easily reference. I don’t focus on it or stress over it. I’m not obsessed, and I don’t blame everything that goes wonky on the Retrograde. Please don’t think that.

But when things do seem to be a little too out of sorts, I check the dates. Most of the time, it’s Mercury Retrograde time. When I first started writing this post a month ago, it was just to chat about it in general. Today, I felt an urgent need to pull up the draft and finish my post. I checked my dates, and sure enough….

2021:
January 30 – February 19
May 29 – June 21
September 27 – October 17

If you’re not aware of what I’m referring to, you’re far from alone in this. A lot of people just don’t know, don’t understand, and many don’t care to. It’s in the realm of Astrology. For some reason, that still seems a bit taboo. I’m not great at explaining it, but the Almanac has a great start.

It’s really rare for me to discuss the retrograde with anyone. I often notice when others are affected by it, but I keep it to myself. I like to help any way I can, but usually it’s met with ridicule and jokes. Instead, I just use it to my own advantage to avoid any issues I can. When the retrograde is going on, I know that I need to be extremely careful with things regarding communication and transportation.

I hope to buckle down and get a lot done over the next couple of weeks. I lined up a few projects for me to focus on. I’m excited for this.

Back in the day (maybe 20 years ago), when I used to frequent the book store, Astrology was located in the tiny Metaphysical/Occult section of the book stores. I’ve read several books from that section, on all sorts of subjects back then. I was the one goth chic awkwardly standing there. I could literally feel the judgement oozing from onlookers. I could hear them in my head, assuming I’m an evil witch worshipping the devil. I’ve had a lot of panic attacks over just trying to get some books lol.
