This week, I am pushing the envelope on Mercury retrograde sewing projects and trying to outfox the Trickster Planet.
One of my creative goals is to sew a wardrobe a season ahead. (Do not be in awe… people who know me are laughing!) I should be completing summer stuff. Instead I am still in more or less a planning stage. Planning is always good when Mercury IS retrograde (starting May 29th this time around). With my luck i will be launching projects during Mercury retrograde(not a great idea) . Instead, I would rather be in Mercury’s graces to finish up projects already started.
So this week I promised myself to at least cut out 3 or 4 garments and have them in the pile of things to work on whilst Mercury is retrograde. Hopefully this will provide some sewing novelty to my to do list, as I also tackle the long standing projects. These are the projects that are likely stuck because they were originally launched during a Mercury retrograde. So hopefully my sewing plans are synching up how energy flows with the Trickster planet lurking about.
However, the fact that I am officially in the season ahead time slot for these projects is quite satisfying. Amazing when you consider that I have fabric inventory for various seasons that have graced my closets for 5 years or more! Somehow, I believe this ‘caught-up’ status of my “To Do” list is a side benefit of doing these Aligned for Mercury retrograde sessions with Astrologer Julie Simmons every year.
Wish me luck!
With love and light
