MERCURY RETROGRADE –August 12 ends September 5th
This is about money and love.
It is a time to think on your feet and be prepared to adapt to whatever comes your way.
Mercury retrogrades are suitable for all the ‘re′ words: rethinking, reflecting, revising, and redoing. Don′t start anything new but revisit existing plans and make sure they hold water. The eclipse will give an energy charge making it possible for you to move forward with clarity once all the planetary pandemonium has passed
Mercury retrograde vibrates the energy that highlights the areas that need correction. It brings forth changes and outcomes that are for the highest good and it also brings challenges. This Mercury Retrograde is happening during the energy between the two eclipses making the energy particularly powerful.
There is a death and rebirth of sorts. Read more about that on the Solar Eclipse post that was previously sent.
This energy can bring endings and beginnings in relationships. This will allow for a new one or it has the ability to strengthen a current relationship for a solid future. It all depends on what the relationship foundation is built on.
This cycle starts in Virgo and ends in Leo which tells us this will bring significant changes in finances and or love life.
I don’t prefer to point out negatives but if we look at this like electrical wiring there are both negative and positive areas. Both have a key role for the flow of energy.
Challenges can be: areas of fear, insecurity, suspicion, lying, deception, fraud, and adultery just to name a few. This energy helps us to correct all that is out of alignment and to create a new life. There are times that no amount of love in a relationship can be corrected. This is especially true if it carries deceit, suspicion and mistrust and will make for an impossible reconciliation. If there is fraud it will be revealed. These challenges bring forward strength and opportunities to improve your relationships in love and finances.
If you are single or in a relationship you can expect to be talking about trust and matters of the heart. You may commit to a relationship or see if one works. You may also may choose to end one. Remember each relationship is important for the time being and not all are forever. It is to see the lessons you gained with that relationship, even out of negative situations, which allows you to grow and apply the wisdom into your life.
Mercury retrograde can always prove to be a gremlin and play havoc with communication, travel, electronics, and mind thoughts. Double check all details in your communication in emails and social media before hitting the send button…oh and make sure you are sending it to the right person. Remember what you say, good and bad, can be revealed for others to see.
Mercury brings a delay in contracts and financial payments coming your way. Business negotiations will be in a phase of flux so avoid signing contracts at all costs if for a new venture. If it is one you have been working on for some time then you should be ok. Just double check all details before signing on the dotted line.
When Mercury goes retrograde it is not the time to do any surgical beautification procedures. Do not go “under the knife,” including Botox or other injections. The outcome can bring a disappointment.
Remember there is a shadow period of Mercury Retrograde so you can expect to feel the energy starting today!
How to best utilize this energy:
Always have caution with your words for they become alive creating your future. What you speak today creates your tomorrow. Speak positive with others in all you do. Double-check all facts, numbers, contracts, trains, planes and automobiles when traveling. Prepare to take what you need during times of delays. Inform others of potential delays, to disarm any negative perceptions
Positive: There is a protection in this energy. It can make you see that an investment may not be as good as it looked and allow time to do more research and to correct any area that could save you money. It can allow time to have communication in a relationship or to correct or change any reckless actions that could sabotage it. It can allow you to eliminate old habits for a better you. Look within and be aware of any negative thoughts that are playing in your mind and immediately change that negative belief with a positive one breaking any repetitive patterns. Negative thoughts are chains and shackles holding you back from your greatness.
Its time to break any negative habits. Mercury retrograde is like boot camp for correcting any areas that have discord to make us stronger. Embrace it and know it is making you stronger for your future in business and love.
