Control is truly an illusion, at least so far as everything outside our own reactions is concerned…
“Relax. Nothing is under control.“
Yes, it is said that when Mercury goes retrograde there are many things that seem to mess up or get mixed up. Tech in-particular is said to get a bit screwy, and messages can be lost or misconstrued easier (Mercury is the messenger after all). But it’s really okay.
Mercury Retrograde is a time of deepening, of slowing down and taking a breather from the everyday rush of things. Think about it, in this crazy, fast-paced, go-go-go world, a break often sounds like heaven. Things will always get done, and despite what we make ourselves believe, not all deadline or goals are so set in stone that we have to keep going, shoulder to the wheel, or else.
Or else what exactly? Do you ever stop to ask yourself this? Will all kinds of horror and doom fall upon you and those you love if you actually take a break to maybe eat and hydrate yourself? Will the world as you know it come to an irredeemable end if you pause and take a few minutes to center yourself and breathe? Or if you actually just relax? Probably not.
Odds are fairly good too that if you actually took a bit of time and assessed your to-do list you’d find that some of it isn’t quite as pressing as you’re thinking it is and that other things could maybe be broken down into easier pieces. There may even be things that you could simply let go of or allow to be done at some other time.
Mercury Retrograde is an ideal time to pause and reassess your current situations and relationships. It’s a time to ask yourself how you’re doing and to see what your needs and wants are and how to go about taking care of you. It’s truly a time to relax and realize that nothing is really under control nor does it need to be and that is what Mercury Retrograde is trying to get us to see.
There is nothing to fear about Mercury in Retrograde. Relax and know that everything will work out so long as you keep trying, and even then, you can still take time to breathe and take in the world around you.
