What does Mercury Retrograde mean? This is when the planet Mercury slows down, and appears to stop (station) and move backward (retrograde). It’s an optical illusion, since there is forward movement, like speeding by a slow-moving train, as it recedes, it appears to go backward. It’s fun to read up on stuff and feel what is right and true to you. Observe and be aware. People fear it and dread it. Here’s how I see it:
You must be patient. Miscommunication with technology and with people. Error messages and glitches may occur. Posts, emails, anything related to computers can go. . .POOF! Hey, that’s life. It’s not the end of the world. It’s not a time to fear, resolve old stuff. Tie up loose ends and finish projects. Declutter. Delete emails. Check stuff off your year long to-do lists. It is advised not to start new projects or sign agreements, but I’m a live on the wild side girl, I say go with your gut. The way I see it is that if you’re doing anything that the “idea” was even talked about before then you’re cool. Create your own magic anyway, lovies.
Remember, we can see from our perspective and will not all be on the same page. No one can make you argue. Drama blinds you. Stand in your truth with love. Know your intention. Forgive. Cut cords. Send blessings to those you have a grievance with. Everyone is going through their own stuff, whether they realize it or not. When you energy dips lower, find a way to pray, chant, dance, laugh, cry, or meditate your way to higher ground. From a higher/broader viewpoint, your Higher Self takes the High road energetically. This astrologically can feel messy, like when you clean out your closet. Recognize when you are having an interaction that feels like old stuff. It is. Love that place that s triggered. Every negative bump in your road can serve you. Treat it as a gift to unwrap. It’s a chance to know who you are. Collectively we may all feel/sense the same things, but radiate your Light and broadcast your own frequency because this is YOUR life. No one else defines it or you. Power struggles rile the ego, which in your spiritual quest, you may vilify. No need. We’re all people…with egos and spirits, which much up our beautiful beings You are not who you were yesterday and neither am I or anyone else.
I personally will always give people second chances and will meet them with fresh eyes and open heart, no matter what others have chirped in my ear about them. I bless all my interactions and relationships also. When I veer from this intention, I know. Standing in my truth, I root in love, and then I act, without regards to whether this looks pretty. Truth and integrity is beautiful.
Center yourself in the space between your thoughts. Stop. Take a deep breath. In that space is a connection to peace. It’s always there. Get in touch with the deeper you. Blessings to all.
