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….
