Mercury in Retrograde; Getting It Together

Today was the peak of Mercury in Retrograde and instead of bringing it up this morning and getting everyone hysterical, I wanted to address it at the end of the day. I'm trusting that, the majority of you, have normal days. Maybe even good or great days! While we all have our own interpratation of how this planetary influence works in our lives it's important to note the good as well as the hang-ups. We often over look this fact in life-even when Mercury is direct. Mercury is a powerful messenger. While I know that many of my clients are harshly affected by this retrograde, I'd like to take a minute to address these moments of friction. If we know that a certain area suffers when Mercury is in retrograde, we should pay special attention to the area, preparing for it before the retrograde hits. This is Mercury's way of polishing you, making you check yourself, re-directing your focus, making you aware of things you neglect and common slip-ups. Perhaps, if we were all a little more careful, prepared and polished in our focus, these little habitual retrograde hang-ups would stop happening. Because when we prepare and address them, we have solved them. We have ended the procrastination or the sloppy work causing these little mistakes. We are then free to focus on something else. Maybe it's another area we lack in that rears it's head or maybe it's the satisfaction and pride that comes from addressing an area we lack in. Maybe, it's a beautiful balance of both. I encourage you to see the Retrograde as a time balance, a time to wake up and pay attention, a time to get your ducks in a row. After all, friction is what polishes away our jagged edges.

Let's reverse the retrograde with planning, awareness and work...and we'll find balance.
