It's very true that this current time we're in can cause some confusion but we tend to see many people blaming all of their silly behavior on this time instead of taking responsibility, I used to be one of these people because basic knowledge of astrology and lack of understanding makes it easy.
Surface understanding means Mercury Retrograde is the enemy when in reality it's probably the best friend you could have asked for. And this best friend is telling you to slow down.
But here's the deal on what is really going on. Some people would rather point fingers out at the Universe, the sky or a god-head, than to look within themselves to see what exactly it is that is going on.
Sooner or later you cannot blame this time on all of our bad choices and knee-jerk reactions. Mercury Retrograde is a time to reflect, reevaluate, reexamine, refresh.
If things seem to be going crazy during Mercury retrograde, what area of our lives is this energy forcing us to examine? What needs intellectual, emotional, or spiritual time, care and attention? This is the time for deep soul-searching which can allow for inner reconciliations. And the outer stuff, well, it just doesn't matter so much. The lessons count, not the acts.
I was told today that someone was released from the bondage that they were being held in. Revisited in this time, it's no surprise. Certain situations are repeating themselves in this time, giving the ability to letting go and starting fresh. Or by all means, you could very well choose to keep revolving around in it. I'm going to have to pass though. The idea of revolving in perpetual garbage does not appeal to me, although revisiting the lessons is actually very much appreciated. The confirmation we can receive in this time can be all we need to move forward with our heads held high and our convictions stronger than ever.
I am grateful for the Retrogrades. They have been my saving grace this last year. I don't expect this current cycle to be any different. Revealing, releasing, remembering and not repeating the same mistakes we can truly move forward once we're done looking back and appreciating the lessons.
Tie up your loose ends! Tidy up your heart and mind space!
Take it all in stride and understand the value of this time. It's not to be feared but embraced
