Many of you already know about the astrological phenomenon known as Mercury Retrograde. If you don’t, there’s some quick info on it in my Top 10 Mercury Retrograde Survival Tips. Mercury officially went retrograde March 30, 2011 and will turn direct on April 23, 2011.
I’m noticing the usual Mercury Retro type action this time around: verbal misunderstandings, computer issues, my phone charger stopped working, old friends have shown up, many things have been dropped or spilled, etc. etc.. All very typical. I try to just laugh. Ha ha ha, good one, Mercury! (Later edit: Also, in the middle of writing this, I got sidetracked by deciding to add Facebook comments to my blog. While I was doing that (a minor ordeal), my son came in after having pulled out his second tooth. And then my lamp wouldn’t work. Needless to say, this has been challenging to write. More typical Mercury Retro.)
But I’m also noticing something special this time around, just by paying attention to what is going on around me and with my friends and clients. I’m going to switch here from talking astrologically to speaking more intuitively. I might be able to make sense of it astrologically as well, but I’m not sure that’s super relevant right now.
It seems that this time around, Mercury Retrograde is challenging many of us with THE issue. What is THE issue? Well, it’s probably different for all of us. For many of us, it’s love or money. I’ve also seen some people working on things related to their home or protection of their children. It’s whatever BIG THING has been on YOUR mind over the past year or so. Maybe longer. I’m making generalizations. And perhaps it’s not happening for everyone. Perhaps it’s where the retro falls in your chart that makes the difference. I’ll be curious to hear what others’ are experiencing.
The thing is that THE issue has the stamp of Mercury Retro on it because the people I know dealing with THE issue had been really close to having put THE issue behind them. (Myself included.) THE issue was just about solved, it seemed. But Mercury Retro wants us to have another look at it. Look at it AGAIN (retro). It feels like we are being given the opportunity to re-align ourselves with our highest good related to whatever Big Issue we’ve been experiencing.
We had so much slow down and inner work to do in the last part of 2010. Then we began to move forward again in 2011. And with the newness of Uranus in Aries and Neptune in Pisces, we all got a jolt of fresh air in the past month. We began to see our new lives taking shape. It finally Made Sense. (Cue choirs of angels singing.)
And now this. It’s back in our faces. Whatever IT is. We THOUGHT we had conquered IT. I think we mostly have. I think this is one final hurrah to make sure whatever THIS is, we are really and truly letting go of whatever doesn’t serve us. Let go of the old. Re-examine whatever baggage you still have: physical, mental, emotional, or spiritual. Let it go. Because as a species, we are on the precipice of a huge awakening. We have grander new lives to lead and the universe is just sweetly making sure we have fully put our consciousness into them. The universe is sweetly making sure we are truly ready to move on. What a sweet and loving universe!
Are you ready?
I’d love to hear your comments regarding whether or not you are having this BIG ISSUE experience. And hey, I have Facebook comments set up now. (Which was a re-visit of an old to-do item itself!) Woo hoo. Isn’t that cool? Please FB comment me. Let’s have some FUN letting go of our old limitations and insecurities and stepping into glorious new versions of the lives we choose.
I ask again…
Are you ready?
And, if you’re truly brave, tell us…
What are YOU letting go of?
or better yet…
What YOU creating?
