If you haven’t already heard or felt the sense of chaos around you, Mercury is indeed in retrograde. Being a Virgo, which is ruled by Mercury, this can be a very stressful and emotional time for me. I find myself not being able to finish my sentences or form a coherent thought. Sounds silly, I know, but it’s actually quite frustrating. With plenty of trail and error, I’m slowly beginning to learn how to handle Mercury in retrograde as best I can.
Living in this fast paced, electronic obsessed and busy world; Mercury going backwards screams havoc. For the next twenty-six days, life will seem a little more hyper-active and chaotic. The best thing for us to do is to take a step back and reorganize, rethink, reevaluate, redo, and reboot. This is a natural and very necessary part of life that needs to be done, and what better time to do it than now! This is the perfect time to go within and consider doing some meditation/reflection. This is also a great time to revisit and hash out past issues. It is very possible to make peace with anything weighing heavy on your heart at this time and just gain new self awareness.
Somethings you may want to avoid is making any brash decisions or starting on any new projects. Chances are your project/life choice will go horribly wrong and you’ll be deeply angry at yourself once Mercury gets a hold of its rotation. As a matter a fact, avoid meetings, purchases, compromises and traveling all together. Just avoid any decision making at all costs. Trust me on this one, just stay low key and Mercury will take it easy on you. You’ll thank me later.
