Mercury goes retrograde in Gemini today and I’m here to remind you that you can do ANYTHING during Mercury retrograde that you would do otherwise.
Metaphysics 101: Your mind is powerful. You will tend to create and reinforce what you believe. If you believe in the gloom and doom messages of Mercury retrograde you are more likely to have problems.
Here’s how I embrace it and advise clients.
💫 Be more open to personal reflection.
💫 Be more thoughtful about the power of your words.
💫 Be more intentional with your communications.
💫 Listen more. Be attentive.
💫 Listen to your soul.
💫 Evaluate lingering ongoing projects, finish them or intentionally take them off your current to do list so you stop giving them mental energy. You can revisit them at another time in life.
💫 You can absolutely sign contracts, mortgages, leases, etc. It’s best to ALWAYS read them carefully, regardless of a retrograde. Live your life and trust yourself. If this is the right time for you to do something, do it.
Astrology can be a powerful tool for getting into cosmic alignment. It’s still just a tool. There is no more powerful method for cosmic alignment than listening to your own soul. Please be wary of anyone that directs you to override that by telling you with certainty what you should do or not do something, especially when they cite a metaphysical tool to rationalize it.
In fact, here’s another great Mercury retrograde opportunity. Be open to seeng how you rationalize NOT listening to your soul.
We’ve all been there. We want to do something or not do something, and so we start rationalizing. If you are into metaphysics, you whip out your cards, pendulums, magic eight ball … anything to get the answer you want.
During Mercury retrograde, own what you deeply know rather than using your mind to rationalize what you want.
The universe is not cruel. It’s always teaching and supporting us, even during Mercury retrograde.
Remember, retrogrades are the illusion of backward motion, so know that you can keep moving forward, albeit maybe a bit more thoughtfully.
