HOW CAN WE NOT TALK ABOUT THIS?
In case you have not noticed, things have been getting a bit jammed up lately. Communication is tough, people are not acting their selfs and things, well, just won't get done.....It almost seems like another force is pushing against us.......Almost like an entire planet is pushing against our energy........Ohh wait, it is. So lets talk about some ways to stay on course and run a tight ship as Mercury goes backwards.
2. Pause and breathe before speaking. (Repeat yourself if necessary!)
3. READ ALL EMAILS AND DOCUMENTS BEFORE YOU HIT SEND.
4. Insure/track important mail and packages (Mercury rules the postal system).
5. LEAVE EARLY FOR ANY TRAVEL AND APPOINTMENTS, SINCE MERCURY RX CAN DELAY FLIGHTS. CONFIRM ALL DATES, MEETINGS AUDITIONS AND APPOINTMENTS .
6. Renew your commitments instead of making new ones. Double down on your focus.
7. FOCUS ON THE PREFIX RE-, WHICH MEANS TO GO BACKWARD (RENEW, REVIEW, REVAMP, REDECORATE, ET AL.)
8. Back up your digital data (photos, contact lists, files) before the retrograde or ASAP if it’s started.
1. BUY NEW VEHICLES, ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT OR GADGETS (UNLESS THEY COME WITH A GOOD RETURN/REPAIR POLICY).
2. Sign contracts without a thorough review from your team of Sarah, Jess & Bay.
3. FLY OFF THE HANDLE OR JUMP TO CONCLUSIONS IF SOMEONE MISUNDERSTANDS YOU.
4. Put anything sketchy into an email or text (you could hit “Reply All” or send to the wrong person!).
5. LEAVE LATE FOR FLIGHTS OR APPOINTMENTS. YOU WILL NOT MAKE IT.
6. Start anything new on top before finishing what’s ahead on the to-do list. Go in order.
7. LEAD PEOPLE ON, GIVE MIXED MESSAGES OR BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU HEAR (ACTIONS SPEAK LOUDER THAN WORDS) YOU CAN LEARN EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BY WHAT PEOPLE DO, NOT SAY.
8. Spread rumors, rant on social media or share unconfirmed information. This is a good rule of thumb all year.
THE UNIVERSE IS TELLING US SOMETHING:
THE UNIVERSE IS ALWAYS TALKING TO US, BUT WE DONT ALWAYS LISTEN EVEN THOUGH ITS BEEN AROUND A WHILE AND LIKE, TOTALLY KNOW HELLA AMOUNTS OF SUPPER WICKED STUFF. MERCURY RETROGRADE IS A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO HANDLE UNFINISHED BUSINESS. MOST OF US START A MILLION THINGS THAT WE DON’T COMPLETE, NEVER REALIZING HOW MUCH PSYCHIC CLUTTER THIS CREATES. THE RETROGRADE IS LIKE A QUARTERLY REVIEW. IT’S A CHANCE TO TIE UP THOSE LOOSE ENDS AND CREATE A CLEAR VISION FOR THE FUTURE.
TAKE ADVANTAGE OF IT, AND YOU’LL EMERGE FRESH AND READY WHEN MERCURY GOES DIRECT. AS THE CLICHE GOES, WHAT YOU RESIST PERSISTS. SO THE MORE YOU CAN EMBRACE CHAOS OR A LACK OF CONTROL THE BETTER YOU’LL EMERGE AFTER THIS INTERESTING CYCLE OF CHAOS!
GO. CREATE. WIN.
