The Wise Approach To Mercury Retrograde

According to astrology, our lives can be in upheaval when Mercury goes Retrograde. Its effects can be felt by anyone, regardless of your zodiac sign.

However, some signs may be more sensitive to its influence than others. This is because Mercury is the ruler of Gemini and Virgo, and people with strong placements of these signs in their birth charts may be more likely to experience disruptions in communication, technology, and transportation during a Mercury retrograde.

Although this concept is widely touted in the spiritual and metaphysical communities, I find that many people affected by it do not understand its true meaning and are not well informed on how best to deal with it.

Mercury retrograde is indeed a challenging cosmic influence. It tends to feel like we have just finished one round of it, and the next one is already looming on the horizon.

A common side effect of Mercury Retrograde for many people is unexplained nervous energy or restlessness. You feel anxious and stressed about everything, and you can’t figure out why? Sometimes you feel anxious about things that have never bothered you in the past.

You may also have a hard time concentrating on things. Retrograde energy can throw even the most calm and centered person off balance.

However, many blessings and valuable life lessons await those most affected at the end of each retrograde cycle. In the meantime, all you have to do is keep moving forward, one step at a time, one foot in front of the other, and stay fully present in the moment. The rewards and benefits of the process will come once you went through it and the chaos is over.

I was taught years ago by a special mentor that during Mercury retrograde you have to stay grounded at all times. You don’t focus on tomorrow, you just focus on today, right now, this present moment, and keep your sanity as best you can.

You do not sign any legal agreements, divorce decrees, investment contracts, or leases during this time. Also, do not start any new projects during this time, as they will not get off on the right foot to move forward in a positive and successful direction and carefully proofread every text message and email before you send it.

In general, be very careful with everything you communicate, including what you say and write. Listen to your gut before you open your mouth, because the words you want to say may come out in a way that is perceived by others as confusing, hurtful, aggressive, or even offensive.

A client once asked me during a reading why she had recently started crying for no reason. She is Taurus: a very strong, stubborn sign. But at this time, Taurus was being affected more than usual by Mercury retrograde. Moral of the story: Just because you had no problems with previous retrogrades does not mean that you will escape the emotional path of the current one. And that’s okay. Always remember that this is a learning experience and an opportunity for personal and spiritual growth. Mercury retrograde can bring some heavy emotions into these life lessons.

I once experienced all my digital devices going haywire during a retrograde. My cell phone stopped working, my Internet connection went haywire, and my computer kept shutting down by itself. What was I doing? Absolutely nothing. I just got away from it all, spent some time in nature, and went to bed early. By not focusing on these issues, I did not feed them any more negative energy, and I was able to regain the positive energy and personal power that the retrograde was disrupting.

The next time your thoughts and emotions get the better of you, or life just doesn’t seem to be going your way, always first check to see if the planet Mercury is currently retrograde. If so, take a sensible, wise approach and focus more on your daily spiritual practice. Meditate or pray and spend more time in nature. Also take care to simply love yourself. Be kind and gentle to yourself. You will find that you will move through this phase in a much more empowered way, rather than trying to avoid, resist or confront it.
