I’m probably going to upset somebody by saying this. I probably upset a lot of people by saying things! That’s OK, I have a good reason. Mercury goes retrograde today until June 3rd, and it’s probably the most ‘potent’ Retrograde of the year. I know, I know. There is always a sigh followed by an often-unexpressed angst. We experience these Mercury Retrograde periods three times per year. Yes, sometimes there will be actual events which make us consider the benefits of this, but, in actuality, the computer can crash, or the car can have troubles anytime. We don’t need a Mercury Retrograde to have things break. On the contrary, if a Mercury Retrograde period is good for anything it is to remind us to repair those things which may be in need of maintenance, attention, or a little help. Therefore, I am actually excited about this Mercury Retrograde period. I am going to use this Mercury Retrograde to take care of some business that is long past due. I’m going to clean up some messes and organize some stuff. I’m going to finish my taxes. I’m going to work on editing my book. I’ve got drawers to clean out and a garage that needs organizing. I have shrubs which are years overdue in their pruning. I’ve got a greenhouse full of stuff needing to be taken care of. If time were to move forward in its normal way, I would feel swamped, rushed, and incredibly burdened. That’s why Mercury Retrogrades exist; to help Ryan take care of his crap! And, I reckon, I’m not the only one. So today, take stock of your life and, rather than starting something big, perhaps it is best to finish up everything we have already begun. We get our files in order and catalog our proverbial warehouse. Doesn’t that sound beautiful? No, Mercury is not going to break your toaster unless it’s just playing around and wants to keep you on your toes! Love Mercury Retrograde. It wants to see us succeed by helping clear the burdens of the past and to take care of the piling minutia which could distract us from our future. Listen to what it has to say by looking behind for clarity.
