Mercury in Retrograde. Three words that strike terror in so many. It doesn’t have to, if you want to look at it in a different way. What if you looked at it as a way to review what has happened in the last few months, regroup and refocus your upcoming moves in life? Because ever since I have done that, Mercury in Retrograde is not so terrible.
It is a time for Reflection — Not Panic!
I actually look forward to it and do just that. As Mercury in Retrograde approaches I take time and do the following:
- Backup my computers
- Clear out my cell phone of any unnecessary data
- Make sure that any normal maintenance is done on any vehicles (oil change, etc)
- Ensure that I am not going to purchase any electronics in the near future
- Make sure all my correspondence is up to date
- Remember that there can be a shadow period before and after each retrograde, keep calm if something goes awry
During Mercury in Retrograde I make sure:
- That I double proof read anything that I write
- If I can delay any travel plans, electronic or auto purchases. If it is absolutely necessary, I double check every detail as possible.
- I show extra patience with others as communication can be difficult
- I review things that I have been learning — I have found that major jumps in my mediumship happen as a result
- Take a deep breath before I react to something that upsets me.
Take this upcoming retrograde to reevaluate things that are going on in your life. Last year I did just that and looked deeply at a friendship of mine and saw it was something more beautiful than I could have ever imagined. Today we are married and settling into our new home. Sometimes reviewing things brings things clear and starts you on a path that is wonderful….
