Approach: Began 17 August
Shadow: Ends 14 October
As always, we are here to tell you this is no time to panic, Dear Stars!
Think of it like an extended summer vacation of sorts… there is now time allotted by the Universe to tie up lose ends, reassess given situations, and still take plenty of time to RELAX -one of the best things we can do under Mercury Retrograde. These passages ultimately are times of REFLECTION. With awareness, no one has to get caught up in what is known as the Messenger’s “tricks” over his approximate 3-week rearrangement fest.
Awareness always starts from within. Check that 06-degree Libra to 21 degree Virgo slice of your astrological birth chart. Definitely handy to know where in YOUR life you should be on the look out for Mercury’s changes. Equally this will be the place to ultimately engage in reassessment of how communication and movement is working in your life. This area WILL see adjustments occur- so responding verses reacting to them makes life easier under Mercury Retrograde. Any soul is able to learn a great deal when it adheres to following the requests that are being asked of it.
TO DO or NOT TO DO under Mercury REtrograde…
Expect CHANGE: in travel, routines, schedules to occur suddenly
Give yourself extra time to get where you’re going
Spend time in the RE’s: Relax, Revisit, Reflect, Redo, REcharge!
Gravitate to REsponding vs. REacting!
“Freak out” when changes come up
Rush: speaking, driving, doing anything!
Sign important documents
Initiate anything new
While our Messenger backtracks through Libra, taking a rational and well-ordered approach in our routines and communications is advised. Beware of being easily distracted, and that feeling of indecision to be heightened. REmember, anything of long-term importance shouldn’t be decided upon until Mercury returns to forward motion.
Mercury backtracks into Virgo upon 17 September, and for the remainder of the retrograde period we are ultimately challenged to practice diligence and subtlety in our routines and communications. Applying these virtues will aide immensely until 09 October when Mercury re-enters Libra moving forward. Even within the shadow (his retracing of the recent retrograde degrees) of this passage that ends 14 October, you will see the opportunities for final adjustments that need to be made from all action occurring within the retrograde period.
Some final tips for remaining calm, cool, and collected under the Messenger’s “tricks.” Another star secret that looks within words or names, is also readily available to provide further advice. The title MERCURY RETROGRADE is no exception to the insight of Lexigrams lends to us all, as it oddly reveals how to make the most of Mercury’s urge for reflection over the next few weeks. When we apply these valuable messages to our personal places requiring readjustment: VOILA! We become an important part of the collective’s needed solution.
