What is it? It is when it appears as though planets are moving backwards through the zodiac, then it is called “retrograde motion,” according to Almanac.com. Mercury does this three to four times a year. According to those who study astrology, when this happens people can experience confusion, frustration and delay. In the past, I used to be fearful of this energy. I am not any more. I have learned to ride the wave, slowing down, being mindful, breathing and being grateful.
Mercury Retrograde can affect communication, travel and your electronics.
These are some tips I have now to get myself through this amazing energetic time.
1. communicate clearly
2. take time to recharge, reflect, rest, relax, reflect, review, retreat.
3. be kind, loving, patient, tolerant, compassionate.
4. protect your energy.
5. ground to mother earth.
6. get fresh air
7. Eat well
8. drink your water
9. be grateful for your blessings
10. connect to God.
