It's has been one of those weeks.. where nothing I plan seems to work out, where I am on edge and irritable. While there are probably a number of reasons for this the biggest culprit (aside from being a hormonal woman reaching her forties...yikes) is, I believe, Mercury Retrograde is on the way...
This is a term a lot know, some have heard of and a few of you may be googling it as you read this. It is a time of year where things can just seem to be a little "off". About 3 to 4 times a year Mercury comes close to earth and once it hits a certain spot it "appears" to go backwards leaving the earth and all of us on it to feel its effects and get thrown off track for about 3 weeks, sometimes a little longer.
I am by no means an astrologer or claiming to have an expertise in this field, all I can do is tell you my own experiences and maybe help you through the rough time that can usually accompany it. I have found it can cause electronics to go crazy, people to be high strung and all sorts of other nonsense so it is important to be prepared for it, aware of it and plan as much as possible to help you get through it.
Some of you at this point may not have a clue what I am talking about and that's okay, it doesn't affect everyone, or it could be affecting you and you are absolutely clueless. That's what this blog is about because it's something I was unaware of a good part of my life and I feel like knowing is as they say, half the battle.
The last week has been a nightmare for me and while there are other contributing factors I feel like the universe is pushing against me. This is always the biggest flashing sign to me that we are either in retrograde or it is on it's way. It's an energy that I am learning to mold with, to move through and I am grateful to at least know it exists and be able to work on it. The best advice I can give anyone is to have patience. It will be important to allow yourself extra time to get things done or get places, be a little more patient with those around you and when the world seems like it's against you remind yourself that it is all just temporary and you'll be just fine...
In 2018 the following dates we will be in Mercury Retrograde:
- March 23 to April 15
