Oh no not Mercury in Retrograde again!
Yes it is that time again.
Mercury is in Retrograde and so many of you are feeling the effects. To look out for myself I have all my ‘peridot’ on, a great protector at this time, but unfortunately, I put it on too late. I was so busy I was not paying attention until I was already in it. The other thing I am trying to do is lay low and avoid potential situations. Now this is not always possible, especially when you’re a psychic and even though you can feel the situation coming, no matter what you do you find yourself in the middle of it and wondering how you can turn back time! For those of you who are not aware of what the whole ‘drama’ is with ‘mercury in retrograde’ allow me to explain the main effects.
* It messes with communication, falling out with friends, experiencing misunderstandings, emails getting lost, check the fine print on contracts,
* It makes technology more glitchy, make sure you get a warranty or put off buying ‘tech’ things until after this period.
* It can stuff up travel plans – delayed or cancelled flights, lost baggage, changes to plans
On the bright side it It encourages creativity, and it is a good time to finish off all unfinished jobs.
How can you deal with this?
I found the following on www.galadarling.com when I was researching and I hope it helps.
A QUICK AND DIRTY GUIDE TO SURVIVING MERCURY RETROGRADE!
Be sure not to take things too personally. People will often say offensive things they didn’t mean around this time, because their thinking is clouded and their communication skills are on pause! If your best friend suddenly became the most insensitive person in the world, give her the benefit of the doubt.
Back up your data!
Don’t purchase any big ticket items, because they will often have flaws or issues that you weren’t aware of! Of course, life doesn’t stop just because of wacky planetary movement, so if you absolutely have to get that car, computer or iPhone, TRIPLE-check all the paperwork, and make sure you have a warranty!
Take things with a grain of salt. Everyone is a bit confused, and people are much more inclined to change their mind once Mercury goes direct. Mercury can be a bit of a trickster — could it be that the next few weeks are a big karmic joke?!
Read the small print on any contracts. Ask lots of questions. Again, you can’t put your life on hold just because of some silly planet, but adapt your lifestyle a bit so that things run more smoothly. Communication can be a mess right now, but do your best to get as much information as you can.
Finish things you started a while ago. Home improvement projects? Wardrobe re-organisation? Short stories? Love affairs?! This is an excellent time to tie up loose ends and file things away forever.
Get together with old friends, reminisce and laugh!
Double-check any information you’re given, especially as relates to travel arrangements! During one particularly formidable Mercury retrograde, I actually caught a cab to the wrong airport! Check times, delays, baggage allowances, reservations… everything!
Allow Mercury to nudge you in unusual directions. If you seem to find yourself “back to the future”, don’t just try to wriggle out of it — look at what the universe is trying to show you. What can you learn from this situation? This is a fantastic time to re-examine, accept and move on.
Use the things you’ve discovered in the past to create a dazzling new vision so that you’re ready to blast ahead when Mercury goes direct!
Thank you to all the students that joined me on zoom for the last two weeks learning about how to do readings with both of the Modern Oracle decks. We had a blast and it was lovely to see everyone embracing the magic of the Modern Oracle. The next online development zoom classes will be in August. We will let you know.
I am off to Hong Kong this week and so looking forward to visiting the wonderful temples, look out for my posts on facebook and instagram.
Hoping you all have an amazing week and can dodge any of the negative effects of Mercury in Retrograde.
Blessings to you all
