During Mercury Retrograde, the planet appears to spin backwards in our cosmos. It’s actually an optical illusion we see here on Earth - because Mercury’s shorter orbit than ours. Each time I used to hear the dreaded, “Mercury is going retrograde,” I’d laugh and tell my more cosmic friends they were creating their own chaos by believing in it.
But year after year I’d have one serious doozy of a Merc Retro (there are 304 a year) and realized the energy is real—like everything—we are part of cosmic motion, and now I do understand that this solar system pull can leave us reeling from its reversal, creating a strong “wind” that changes up our lives.
Mercury governs technology and communication – controlling both how we send out our message and receive messages from others. It’s also for me a time to Re-everything. Reconnect, Revise, Review, Rejuvenate, Reconsider, Restore, and…Redo! It’s a great time to Reconnect to your Dreams and Rest. It’s a perfect time to Rejuvenate your Body and Immune System (there are Covid cases popping up everywhere again!) It’s an ideal time to Restore your Voice—Speaking your truth and connecting to the essence of your soul in how you communicate.
It’s also a great time to Refill your cup. So, grab a cup of tea, your journal and light some incense and re-imagine a situation that might not be restorative to you on a daily basis. Organize your thoughts around how you can shift and replenish yourself and regain balance with it.
Reflecting is another way to re-imagine what could be a chaotic few weeks, instead of doing so much, allow yourself to reflect and realign with your best most clear beautiful self.
Mercury goes direct June 3rd…if you take this time to get yourself into a rested solid state of presence, you will experience a joyful rebirth of energy and clarity.
