Another Mercury Retrograde is upon us and it’s time to approach it with ease…
“Mercury Retrograde simply means things are more likely to go contrary to the normal order. So relax and go gently with the flow.”
Mercury Retrograde has been built up to be something to fear, something to cause paralysis and unease and dread…and yet, at it’s core, Mercury Retrograde is nothing more than an opportunity to pause and reflect.
A retrograde, after all, is described as something that is contrary to the normal order. And normal order at this time is not exactly something I’d cared to cling to.
There is also something rather welcoming about Mercury Retrograde in this tech-focused world. Yes, having tech problems totally sucks and can cause all kinds of havoc and chaos, but in the midst of it, one can truly take a moment to reflect on their relationship with technology.
By taking the time to ask yourself how does tech affect the day-to-day, your moods, your emotions, your well-being, you can being to take stock of how to best interact and utilize your screen-time to your best benefits.
Mercury Retrograde allows each of us a breathing space, a time to slow down and step back a bit and see how our lives are work for and against us. We, of course, have to actively choose to do this and to navigate the bumps and lumps with a nod more to the optimistic instead of the pessimistic, but when we choose to do so it empowers in amazing ways.
It’s time to stop fearing Mercury Retrograde and using it as an excuse for when bad things happen and instead use it as a time of reflection, resting, renewing, and reconnecting. Channel the gifts presented in a time that flows contrary to normal and see if maybe, just maybe, a new normal could be formed instead.
