Mercury – the planet of communication – has gone retrograde again and will stay retrograde until August 26, 2011. The theme of this Mercury retrograde, as it always is, is reflection and…drum roll, please…communication.
Now is the time to pay attention to the important details you might otherwise overlook. Pay extra attention to synchronicities that occur in your day-to-day life. Write and then edit what you’ve written. Meditate, spend time alone. Organize your closet. Relax.
Mercury in Retrograde is a time for reflection and if you’re not doing that, then Mercury will get your attention in other ways (hence the ‘trickster’ nickname it has earned).
Astrologer Robert Ohotto says the only time he hasn’t fallen victim to any of Mercury’s tricks is when he’s spent the whole time on his meditation pillow. We can’t all do that for 3 weeks (although it might be nice!), but all of us can take some time every day for meditation and/or reflection.
These are the key words in the REtrograde period:
- Rewind: no, don’t go back in time (though that might be nice!). Just replay the events in your life and consider each of the lessons you’ve learned in the past few months since the last retrograde period
- Relax: ’nuff said. Try to get in as much time for meditation and reflection as possible
- Reconsider: are you sitting on the fence about a decision you have to make? Reconsider your options…and then make your decision after the retrograde period
- Repair: if something needs fixin’ (and that includes your heart!) this period is a perfect time to do it
- Rethink: ponder the situations in your life (both past and present) and see if you can change the way you think about them to change your reality
