Many of you have heard of the Mercury Retrograde. Nervous anxiety. Unable to concentrate. A moment in time and space that temporarily turns lives upside down. This energy, of sorts can play havoc with your thoughts, communications, with friends or co-workers and become weird and uncomfortable. Upheavals with travels and or electronics. Mercury Retrograde, maybe even a somewhat dreaded but regular house guest of which we all can relate to….and when we do, well…we kick ourselves because we do not or cannot grasp how to properly deal with these types of intensities. So, what do we do? We do what we do best, blame it on someone or something…. or in this case, Mercury’s Retrograde.
But what if we stop to think. … about it all, in the grand scheme of our very own lives. What is our truth, really?? How can we catch up with our real selves…?? Our true desires? Is it possible for us to form a new vision, a more positive and productive outlook on this life? Can we change course and become propelled towards a new vision of hope because of the pain we may experience in this instance? By truly understanding what Mercury retrograde manifests can it help to bring clarity and empowerment into your experience? I believe so…and what better time to explore, when life becomes a bit, rough or tough with our Afro puffs? (heeeyyyy!)
But seriously….. think about it. The potential of it all. Our progressive, collective minds creating, bringing to light innovative ideas, new thought… which can assist in uplifting the collective consciousness of the planet. Now, is a great time to experiment with out of the box ideas that can help to radically shift perceptions.
- Food for thought — during a Mercury retrograde: Don’t take things too personal. Take extra care with your words and try not to react too quickly in any arguments or if provoked. Take some time out if you start to feel overwhelmed by the hectic pace, and double-check all of your emails, posts on Facebook, Twitter, etc… before hitting the send buttons. Most importantly, if you havent yet realized, many of the aspects in the Mercury retrograde can be extremely challenging. They can exacerbate the negative influences of life itself, and turn the theme of the day to annoyance or even to extreme danger, even violence. So take a step back or forward and breathe, exhale and know that there is something good and right that we can all walk away with/from, if only we look deep within ourselves…and transmute the darkness into light. <3 This is what I know, to be truth….and this is not the ego writing, thinking. We must reconnect with integrity, strength, patience, love for all…everyone and every thing…. connecting once again with Mother Earth and our Father in Heaven… on a mental level…reconnecting with our most purest state.

“In the new age, spiritual and astrological community, mercury retrogrades have a bad reputation. Mercury retrogrades are famous for effecting electronic equipment, causing travel delays and cancellations, influencing breakdowns in communication such as things getting lost in translation, pieces of information going missing, the inability to finish sentences, arguments arising out of nowhere with seemingly no provocation, the inability to form a coherent thought.” — Click here to be redirected to Teal Swans Youtube.
