Mercury Retrograde Help! Jan 5th-25th It’s that time of year again & this proves to be a challenge right out of the new year gate... considering Communication is one of my 2016 Intentions. And it's going to happen on our 1st new & full moon of the year!
What is mercury retrograde you ask? Or maybe, why is everything so complicated right now?
Mercury rules communication! Retrograde, or the appearance that the planet is moving backwards in the universe, makes everything feel like it's upside down. Many hiccups occur during this time involving interpersonal or technological communication.
Travel, speaking your truth, understanding others clearly, keeping focused & general technology are influenced during this time.
Let's try a new approach when communication glitches arise.
1) Walk into another room, location or different setting.
2) Take a deep breath.
3) Look into a mirror & ask “What is the root of this problem?”
4) Visualize this beautiful image. A cosmic dance of physical & virtual interaction
5) If it’s human interaction… consider a virtual solution. Examples: Email your thoughts. Talk to an internet friend. Research before continuing the conversation.
If it’s a technical problem… reflect on a past lesson learned from a human regarding this or a similar issue. Examples: Who is the 1st person that comes to mind? Can they offer advice/help?
The point is to continue communication but utilize other methods. This is an opportunity to expand our communication horizons. People, places & things are not meant to be in our lives forever - some revolve quickly through our orbit & others remain deeply intrenched in our lives. Reflections & Interactions.
Let's keep that Throat Chakra activated during this time!
