Yep, it’s that time again! Mercury Retrograde is here!! yay.
Mercury Retrograde is an astrological event that comes 3 to 4 times a year, like once every quarter even thought my husband insists its constant.
This fall we are in Mercury Retrograde from Sept 27th to Oct 17th, 2021….and it’s not the only planet in retrograde. There are like 5 more right now, so it happens often. Fun, right?!!
So, What does it mean for you? Mercury retrograde actually means the planet slows down to the point it feels like it is moving backwards. All the planets go retrograde at certain times of the year. Even now I think there are 5 in retrograde.
Since Mercury is the communication planet, it governs anything communication like contracts, technology, transportation + travel.
You might have heard there are some things you shouldn’t do during Mercury Retrograde like sign contracts, do big pitches, or really start anything but I simply don’t agree. I feel this is more of an awareness challenge.
This is how I approach it; The more you slow down and are aware of what is going on around you, with a bit of extra care, there is no reason everything shouldn’t flow smoothly.
So, how can you move through the next few weeks with less stress + delays?
1. Know your strategy + follow it ~ this is the basics of Human design where you are learning how to use your energy in your own natural way. Following it will put you in the right place at the right time. So much better than pushing or forcing things to happen bc we’re anxious to get results only to NOT get the results we wanted. Find out your strategy here from your HD chart (free BTW).
3. Be patient ~Yep, this can be super challenging especially if you are an MG who moves super fast through the world. Slowing down is hard to do when you’re used to going mock 10 all the time, but it is necessary especially during retrograde. So before you freak out over something not moving as fast as you want it to, pause. Take a deep breath, and remind yourself “with grace+ ease”. It helps. try it.
