On June 18th, Mercury started its retrograde motion, joining retro group of planets: Saturn, Venus and Jupiter. Reminder: all this is layering over the Corridor of Eclipses.
So, what do we have as a result? “A hot mess,” some might call it. Others might say its the worst time of their lives. I call it a beautiful transformational opportunity.
You probably already know what Mercury Retrograde means. In case you don’t, here is a brief write up.
- Mercury goes retro about 3 times a year
- Expect telecommunications and technology in general to falter and be extremely glitchy
- Misunderstanding, miscommunication, sent the wrong text to the wrong person type of scenarios will be occurring
- Things from the past might surface up that you will need to re-visit. Think any RE-action: revise, recheck, resend, redo, reorganize, restructure, replenish, refill, restore, refresh
Add karmic cleansing of the Corridor of Eclipses that is happening right now, expect to be tested. So be diligent, don’t fall into the trap of anger, frustration, inability to see the light in the end of the tunnel. Trust that this too shall end and the going might even get easier if you approach this time with consciousness of being present in the moment. Being present with whatever it is that you are dealing with right now.
It is sooooo important to give ourselves space during this time to feel, all the emotions that come up, good or bad, they all have a place to be.
Mercury retro might present a situation or emotion that you will need to re-visit, which gives us an opportunity to improve our reaction. So a chance for growth is here if you are willing to recognize and take it.
Do not get frustrated if things are not going your way.
Go outside more.
Be patient with others around you, especially those who are affected just like the rest of us but don’t know it.
