Happy Wednesday Everyone!
It’s midweek, and I am finally getting this post out! I have been having some technical difficulties-thank you Mercury Retrograde 😉
I meant to get this out Saturday, and then Monday, then yesterday, but alas….I finally got it.
Hope you all are staying sane throughout this cosmic craziness!
The energy is wild right now, and this Mercury Retrograde is primed to be a surprising and wacky one.
Mercury turned retrograde this past Saturday, the 12th, and stays this way for 23 days- stationing direct again on 9/5.
The effects of the retrograde are felt a bit longer as there are what we call ‘shadow’ days before and after the actual retrograde.
As long as you are aware (this is key) of the energy and how it affects us ‘down here’, I truly feel it can take you to your most authentic place.
Let’s break this down a little further.
Mercury rules the mind. The Sun rules the essence, the soul.
Mercury is the closest planet to the Sun when it’s direct- when it stations retrograde, it gets even closer to the Sun.
Mercury and the Sun have a very close relationship.
The way we talk to ourselves, the truths that live in our mind (Mercury) become our reality (Sun) under the retrograde period! Use your words and your thoughts wisely and keep them positive.
What we think is what we become.
Mind over matter.
As I always say, use the Retrograde time to Reassess, Release, and Realign.
This is key- and expect the unexpected!
Pay attention to how and what you are communicating. Slow down.
Keep in mind, Mercury is retrograde along with Saturn, Uranus, Pluto and Neptune. That is five planets backwards at the same time! Five! This is really slowing things down so have patience, this is key.
Let’s not forget the intense energy from the Solar Eclipse that passed on 8/7 and the Total Solar Eclipse that is to occur on 8/21. We are right in between two very energetic and rare energetic flares, plus all of these retrogrades at the same time!
As above so below. We feel this, make no mistake.
Important to mention- because Mercury is an inner Planet, (along with Saturn as well ) we feel the affects on a more conscious level, more deeply. As inner planets they move quickly and create quite a stir.
With Uranus, Neptune and Pluto, these are outer planets that move very slowly throughout the sky.
The effects of the outer planets are much more subtle. They are still felt, but on a much more subconscious level.
Please watch the video below for more insight for the coming few days. (I recorded this on Monday).
