Have you heard the term ‘Mercury in Retrograde’? It’s probably only about six months ago when I first saw the term being bounced around on Twitter. What does that mean I thought? I started looking into it but not in a massive way. My favourite ‘moon’ lady author and astrologer, Yasmin Boland has just published a book with a fellow astrologer all about Mercury in Retrograde. https://www.moonology.com/ In the interests of my blog readers I bought it and now understand a bit better what it means. Before I share this with you, I just want to say how interesting I found it as it makes complete sense to how my last week has been!
Last Friday morning both my children were at school. Great I thought, I can get on and finish my crystal online course I have been working on. However, once I had dropped the kids off I thought, I don’t really feel like going home and working by myself. Instead I decided to go to a local wellbeing networking event because I felt as if I wanted to be around people. I was in Newcastle on Saturday at my nieces birthday party, then yesterday I gave myself the day off to go and ‘birth’ a drum. More on this in another blog! Today I felt like decluttering my wardrobe, which I have done, got a bag for charity together, put all the washing away then sat down to read Yasmins book.
Mercury goes Retrograde
On Friday, Mercury went into retrograde into Sagittarius. I didn’t know that until today. Mercury going into retrograde happens four times a year. Basically, Mercury is going backwards. It affects everyone but if it is in your birth sign it can affect you more strongly than others. When Mercury goes retrograde there are certain things to be aware of. This is a great time to deal with unfinished business. So finish those projects you have started. Note to self, finish my online crystal course! It’s not a great time to start new projects as these may need to be redone once the retrograde has finished. Communication is massive during this time. Don’t sign any documents without reading the small print. Don’t make any HUGE decisions. Back up your laptop and mobile phone. Check your car for oil and water before you travel, and petrol too! Expect delays when travelling so always leave extra time for journeys. Get together with old friends and don’t go on a first date.
Mercury in Sagittarius
Specifically for Mercury in Sagittarius it encourages you to enjoy the lighter side of life by learning to play again! I was in the soft play with my kids on Saturday going down slides and enjoying myself rather than sitting on the side with a cuppa. Allow the fire within you to come out. Think about how you can develop your creative side and find your true passion.
I’ve found this so interesting learning over 2018 how we tick and how the planets impact on our thoughts, our feelings and our work. I’d love to know if you use planetary influences in your lives, personal or work. Just comment below.
