Oh Yes! Mercury retrograde is back again! This time is it starts August 30 until September 22, 2016.
About three or four times a year there comes a time when Mercury is in retrograde for about three weeks and many of us are aware of the effects when Mercury goes into retrograde, we all try to get everything done that involves, contracts, business or legal transactions, and most of all avoiding buying any type of new electronic or communication gadgets, (if your looking to buy the new galaxy note 7, wait until October).
Every time it happens, we have an understanding that something spiritually is happening in the universe and having an effect in our lives that we feel a sudden shift, either it’s negative or positive.
So we all hope for the best with every retrograde, but it does not have to be this way.
For three weeks that we have the opportunity to recognize areas in our lives that needs patience and correction.
It’s when our personal life is being reviewed in a sense with reflection and renewal from our past and having a better understanding on taking it to a different direction.
It’s not that this is the time when we should dread trying to avoid it but accepting it and using it your advantage, (yes it can be a very good time for many of us).
Most importantly being aware can actually help you prepare and get through certain delays, undelivered email messages that won’t go through and not to mention miscommunication with soulmates or our love ones.
With this Mercury retrograde it’s not ideal to start a new job or make a new career change unless you have been waiting for a certain position or a business transaction to go through.
Actually the retrograde is great for many who have been waiting for a certain career position or a business transaction to go through. Mercury retrograde can benefit legal matters, paperwork, and business transactions that have been at a standstill for so long, that can actually come to an end and move forward during Mercury retrograde.
This is why marking it on your calendar and always backing up all your files and data especially phones, iPads tablets, computers and making sure that you making your appointments are made, before the retrograde begins.
There is also shadow phase. Two weeks prior and two weeks after the actual retrograde happens, I call this a little reminder, most of you like myself will notice things start going a little haywire not to mention delays, so this is time you will see mercury retrograde is around the corner.
Many relationship couples can go through a break up during Mercury retrograde, it happens because of miscommunication, energy shifts happening, it will feel like an emotional volcano if you allow it to get that far. I highly recommend to be aware and avoid deep discussions of the future, especially during this retrograde.
This can be a plus for previous relationships that were broken apart prior to Mercury retrograde can actually come together during Mercury retrograde especially when it is in Virgo.
This is a time when many soulmates find themselves back together, reuniting or start communication after a separation during Mercury retrograde.
It’s a very spiritual time when it comes to soulmates and Mercury retrograde, with my experience people have been reuniting more during this time than any other time of the year.
Also rekindling and getting back together with old friends is another thing that can happen with the Mercury retrograde in Virgo.
Virgo is rule by the planet Mercury which is about communication and with this combination, represents health family organization and reality.
Maybe thinking a lot about organizing your life, ideas with career getting more in tuned with your health, nature, animals and more importantly spirituality.
Now is a great time to start focusing on healthy clean eating and changing up your diet and eating more organic foods that are non-GMO, also starting a new fitness plan getting back into shape, and making goals for the future with health.
This Mercury retrograde is a time to refresh and balance your where you thinking.
Start focusing on meditation and spiritually getting more in tuned with your inner spirit and raise your vibrational level.
A lot can happen with connecting with family and love ones, always remember not to allow negativity hold you down or overwhelm you, especially when it comes to a relationship with love.
This retrograde does affect all of us focusing on the Earth sign energy, especially Mercury rule sun signs Gemini or Virgo, they will have a bigger influence of the retrograde, If you are one of the signs be prepared things may not be the way you planned, but try your best not to allow it to overwhelm you.
This is a good time to reconnect with old friends, previous relationships and most importantly love ones were currently in your life at the moment especially if you have children.
Embrace everything in your life that may not be exactly what you want but giving gratitude in every area during Mercury retrograde will help attract positive new beginnings into your life.
Try to get old projects completed, I have a list of all projects that I save until Mercury is in retrograde, also backing up crucial data, cleaning out files, documents and looking through old photos is one of my favorite activities during the retrograde, It brings back memories from the past that are cherished for a lifetime.
