Mercury Retrograde (MRx)
A planetary cycle from above that asks us to respect the actions of change, rest, reflection and review anywhere you may live on earth.
All matters concerning communications, movement, traveling, mechanics, electronics, and circulation of energy anywhere on the earth are all affected under this “backtracking cycle.”
The key to navigating Mercury Retrograde is allowing all changes to occur and respond to them without resistance nor reacting in frustration. How can we find outlets and tools to help us align our peace of mind in these changing times?
Get Ready. Set. Let’s Journal!
Mercury Retrograde takes us all to the power of the “RE” vocabulary. Engaging in the REconnect, REWork, REvise, REroute, REdo, REnew, REtreat and especially RElax are all great to do whenever it is MRx.
With REflection being our key “RE” action word throughout this cycle, if you do not already journal, now is the perfect time to start receiving your benefits with this mindful grounding tool.
1. Each morning, meditate within your own practice sprinkling in this intention:
“Whatever changes may show up in my day today, I easily embrace and accept them into my now.”
2. Take note of what you have planned for the day in your calendar planner.
3. Each evening or following morning, record how your original plans may have changed or altered.
4. As the close of Mercury Retrograde arrives, you will more than likely have very interesting evidence about the power of unexpected changes that show up under this cycle more so than any other time of the year.
5. REmember: The Approach (approximate 2 week period preceding MRx) to Mercury Retrograde allows us to receive the “preview of coming MRx attractions.” Starting to journal under The Approach is also highly favored!
The Shadow (approximate 2 week period that follows after MRx) connects the dots the all the recent Retrograde changes. This time frame is great to profoundly notice the ironing out and rewards that finally being able to move forward will then bring as we review our journaling journey.
GO DEEPER BONUS. Always check in with your Sun Sign’s reflection requests for any given MRx. What specific areas of life are you being ask to “dive deep” and return to the space of silence in retreat and get busy with healing, clearing and cleansing? See how you resonate with the reflective changes. Any Mercury Rx round profoundly asks you to reflect and do the necessary soul work from wherever it channels next in your natal chart.
Remember Mercury Retrograde supports returning to what already exists and is established, not making any kind of initiation intended for future success.

Thanks for this helpful exercise; I linked to this in my post on the subject.
Hi Sharita, Happy Monday, July 1, 2019!
I really liked this exercise so I have my new notebook in my hand and will write each day. It may not always be in the morning but I will get it done. Being a Gemini, I will try to be more mindful of the RX.
Thanks, Ann Godfrey
PS Will let you know how it goes in August.
Awesome Anne, and remember there are no rules as to when you need to write accordingly to your schedule, as long as the commitment to it is adhered to. Most people enjoy it in the morning as this is a the best time of our day to set our intentions. Hope you have already been receiving powerful insight for yourself! Looking forward to hearing the full progress come August! =)
