I Thought You Said...
Here we are again, beginning another Mercury Retrograde cycle. Perhaps you remember this past July? You may have rescheduled a few appointments several times, communication with your loved ones was nothing short of misunderstandings, tears flowed like rivers, and tempers flared or you lost something important and it miraculously showed up on Labor Day. Mercury, the planet that rules communication, was Retrograde. Mercury went Retrograde on October 31st and will remain that way until November 20th of this year.
To refresh your memory, a Mercury Retrograde cycle is when the planet Mercury appears to move backward in its orbit, which creates problems with decision making and communication in general.
Mercury doesn't really shift and go in reverse, it only appears to move backward or slow down because one of the other planets speeds past it.
During a Mercury Retrograde cycle, we have trouble communicating, as I stated, getting our point across as well as having difficulty remembering and listening. We temporarily misplace items, start a list or forget where we were in a project. All the above as well as misunderstandings and schedule changes create short tempers, irritability, and a general nervousness.
Because we have trouble making decisions and because misunderstandings are so prevalent during this approximate three-week period, it is to your advantage to avoid making major purchases, signing contracts, making commitments, and shopping during a Mercury Retrograde cycle. So, hold off until after the 20th of November to start your holiday shopping!
But it's not all bad news during a Mercury Retrograde cycle, there are advantages, blessings that we may not see until after Mercury goes Direct, or November 20th this cycle. #1 As we become introverted, we search our hearts and minds for the sabotaging habits and thoughts we need to release in order to move forward. #2 We rethink or relive an experience and next come upon the truth of it, which conquers anxiety, fear or a misconception. #3 We review a goal and our plan to accomplish it. This review usually brings to mind different or additional steps we need to take in order for our goal to reach its fruition. #4 We often finish a project that, for one reason or another, we have not been able to complete.
