Holy F, this Mercury Retrograde has chewed me up and spit me out.
I grew up with astrology. My mom hand calculated people’s charts, where now, astrologers just put dates into a computer program and abracadabra you have your whole astrological forecast at your fingertips. She would often warn us, “Mercury is Retrograde, don’t do” this or this. Her declaration would fall on deaf ears, and we would do what we wanted anyway. My first takedown of Mercury Retrograde was when I purchased my first car. It was an Oldsmobile Omega, and it was the shiny price of $700. I worked my ass off at Kmart to pay for it myself. I drove it home all proud, parked it in the driveway and never was able to drive it again. I got the typical, “I told you so!” from my Astrologer Mother.
This time it feels different. Mercury is Retrograde in Pisces, my sun sign! Ridiculous if you ask me. On top of this, the last Full Moon in February was in Virgo, my rising sun. It's some intense shit.
Let’s break down this Mercury Retrograde. Communication in any way is governed by Mercury, and when Mercury is Retrograde, it is closest to the Earth leaving it's mark in a powerful way. According to Experts things that can go wrong are ……
Miscommunication and arguments with everyone, anywhere and everywhere.
You forget shit.
Appointments are missed.
Your intuition guides you in the wrong direction.
Travel plans go way wrong.
Contracts are not clear.
Everyone is in your shit like it is nobody’s business spreading gossip like wildfire.
According to what I have been reading --> if Mercury is Retrograde in your sun sign that list above is magnified.
Boy is it ever. Everything that can go wrong has. Power outages in majorly fucked up ways….
(I am currently typing this in the dark.) Miscommunication with my job, bills, and insurance companies. My mail is not being forwarded to my new place, people saying they will take care of something and it doesn’t get taken care of. Lies. Lies. And more lies. I haven’t slept in days, my intuition is cloudy, and my emotions are all over the place with tears falling when someone looks at me the wrong way.
What I have found helpful during this time is asking for help — asking multiple people for help. Not giving up and self care!! Don't forget to take care of you.
My Higher Power has been showing up for me big time during all these life changes, chaos and interruptions of my serenity. During these misunderstandings, a more creative solution presented itself! Sometimes what you need is right in front of your face, and you don’t need to search high and low at the detriment of your inner peace.
At least my Apple technology continuesto beat along, and I haven't been fired! Keeping the focus on what’s going right, keeps my energy flowing at a high vibe rate rather than being sucked alive by mercury.
PS. Mercury goes direct on March 28th. Can't wait to kiss this Mercury Retrograde bye!
