Mercury Retrograde March 22nd – April 15th

This is the time people start going into melt down mode thinking Mercury Retrograde is going to create so many issues and set themselves into a tail spin… Yet don’t be discouraged… Mercury Retrograde it is also a time of clearing out the shadows/doubts & fears of yours and not being caught up in those of others either… 

Mercury is the planet that rules communication, travel, technology and how we connect…  So, when Mercury is retrograde, its important to remain flexible, allow time for extra travel, and avoid signing contracts… Review projects and plans at these times, but wait until Mercury is direct again to make any final decisions…

​​Some people blame Mercury retrograde for “bad” things that happen in their lives… Instead, take this time also to slow down so you can review where you put your energy in your life…For example, if family and health are important to you, are you putting your energies there or just overextended in other areas? Take a moment to reflect…

>>> Here Are #5 Tips To Help Navigate Through Mercury Retrograde:

#1 Slow Down
You’ll experience delays getting anywhere transportation wise, so utilise this time to simply slow down and reflect on your world… That quiet contemplative time where you can consider all your options… Also a moment to physically slow down too… Some people may become more sleepy at this time so take the time to self care…​

#2 ​​Review & Back Up All Your Work… 
Over this period it is easy for information on your computer to disappear into thin air… So become mindful and backup your work to safe guard this happening… 
Review your work in detail or read the finer print of information also as we tend to oversee the smaller details and its in the details that we can come undone… ​

#3 Miscommunication & Over Sensitivity
Please Please Please think before you speak in this time… It is a moment that everyones emotions are highly sensitive and misinterpretations​​​ are so easily taken on board… Remember words have the potential to heal or harm – well this moment is never more important to bring awareness to this statement… 

Throughout these few weeks is when arguments can a so easily erupt out of completely nowhere… Miscommunication and others taking things in the wrong way is big when Mercury Retrograde happens… So this is where it becomes interesting… 

This could be the ideal situation where you decide enough is enough with certain people and cut final ties with them or you’ll forgive having higher awareness that everyone is experiencing an over sensitivity of emotions and sometimes words just come out the wrong way and if you’re not feeling awesome it could be you taking it in the wrong manner… 

So either cut the ties or let it go… Don’t go into your head and over think shit… The only person who that destroys is YOU… ​​​​

#4 ​​​​Check Your Calendar…
OMG Have you ever had that moment you agree to something only to discover that you’re also committed somewhere else already and its too late because you’ve said yes to both… And someone, including YOU will become disappointed…
So check your schedule before saying yes to anything and also check it too so that you don’t forget appointments either… 

#5 Don’t Get Caught Up In Other Peoples Dramas… ​​​ ​
Now this can be a biggie for some… With angrier people & miscommunication occurring its so easy for people to want to share or offload their problems onto you… Be mindful that you are sensitive too as this time also and you may not always want to be caught up in the drama of other peoples lives right now… 
​​
​​​ 
You can’t stop your life, but plan ahead, have back-up plans, and be prepared… Mercury Retrograde is not here to destroy you or make you life a living hell, because once you know something you cant unknow it… 

​​Just be mindful and remember there is always a flip side of this time as well as we also see into out shadows & fears effortlessly and apply the concept of cut the ties or let it go…

Much Love
