Mercury Retrograde – How Will It Affect You?
April 9th 2017 – May 3rd 2017 in Aries, then Taurus
Mercury is the ruling planet of all communications, speech, verbal, written, typed and texted.
Including business partnerships, creative projects, friendships, romance, it’s pretty much everything that revolves around communication.
It means things can go awry more than usual, and there are lessons to be learned during these phases.
Astrologers recommend easing off on certain aspects in our life, like starting new projects, signing contracts, completing important tasks.
Also if you’re planning on travelling then add extra time for delays or mishaps.
In generally, try to make space for heightened miscommunications among the people you interact with on a daily basis. Take time to centre yourself, be calm, and reflect.
When Mercury goes ‘retrograde’ or reverses its forward movement around the Sun, we feel it in the form of delays, hassles, misunderstandings.
Many of us are sighing, not again! Now I won’t get anything done!” While there will no doubt be delays and misgivings until Mercury turns direct, there is another side of this period that you may come to appreciate.
Mercury Retrograde is also a cosmic start over, If you want to try again at a relationship, a project, or business idea, then you get a second chance with Mercury, who stops, backs up, and gives you another shot.
Mercury Retrograde can also bring communication from old relationships and you may be revisited by people who have been out of your life for, months, or even years.
If you’ve been chasing the future in full steam ahead mode and stressing yourself out Mercury Retrograde says let go and trust in the divine because you can’t control everything.
Just remember to breathe, and take things slowly. And never take anything personal during Mercury Retrograde!
Try to find some comfort in knowing that sometimes two steps back can in the end propel you 10 steps forward.
