Mercury In Retrograde!

Yup. Mercury is in Retrograde.  Every time I turn around, planets are going backwards.  {Mercury in Retrograde occurs when the planet appears to be moving backwards—it typically lasts about 20 days, 3 or 4 times a year.}  What does this mean? Well, its not all bad. Yes your electronics are wack, your phone drops calls, your internet is slow, or your son accidentally knocks your phone out of your hand and its the worst screen shatter of all time…All of these things push us to re-think what we need and do everyday.

Its a great time to step outside your box and figure out a new way to solve problems. If you are not as direct in handling situations, maybe this will be your time to use that skill.  If you are more direct in confronting things head on, maybe this is your time to let someone else help you for a change.

It is a great time to be a mentor, and mentor others. With all the things you learn in your life every day, someone is always needing some advice from you.  Even if you don’t think you have any to give, this can be a magic time to give and take advice. Remember the saying “When the student is ready, the teacher appears.”?

Tell yourself you are loved, and listen to your intuition. When you take care of yourself your intuition becomes more clear.  This is the best time to start listening to your intuition, especially if you find it hard to do. The energy of the planet moving backwards, helps with tuning in to what we know best.  This is why people during this time feel off center, or out of control – most people that feel this way are not in touch with their intuition on a daily basis.  Mercury in Retrograde forces you to take a hard look at what you feel, by intensifying emotions. These feelings that come up will help you start the process of what you need to release and let go.

Meditation, yoga, finding a mantra, receiving reiki, thinking positive, finding solutions, and not focusing on the negative can help you smooth sail through this retrograde (which ends May 22nd).  Take a moment to reflect. You will have two more retrogrades this year:

  • August 30 to September 22
  • December 19 to 31

Find the message that this retrograde is sending you, because there is one. You just have to be open to receiving it.


much love,
