Mercury Retrograde brings gifts for you

Mercury Retrograde brings gifts for you


The past week there have been messages plastered across social media alerting us to the fact that Mercury, the Messenger planet, has gone retrograde!

It is true, Mercury is a trickster…

At this time, communications are prone to going awry, signals are more likely to get confused and it’s a good idea to back up our technical devices and be vigilant when it comes to signing important contracts and making big decisions.

But there’s good news!

When a planet is said to be in retrograde it appears to be moving in a backwards motion in the sky from the perspective of Earth. In astrology when a planet moves from a direct into retrograde motion it’s energy can influence us in the opposite manner to how it normally would.

Retrograde periods are a perfect time to engage in ‘RE’ activities – to re-evaluate, reassess, review or redefine what you are doing and how you are doing it.

This retrograde is occurring in the zodiacal sign of Libra – sign of harmony, diplomacy and relationships which means it is in an ideal time to get a fresh perspective on this area of your life.

Gifts for you

Wouldn’t it be wonderful to create more meaningful relationships, to increase your capacity to experience and express more love and compassion with others?

You are being presented with a remarkable opportunity to reflect on your relationships, and to review and revise how you communicate and relate with others.

Relationships that are unbalanced or out of alignment may get a shake up or perhaps it is time to consider whether you are ready to stop wasting energy trying to appease others or move on from a relationship that no longer serves either of you…
