The energy for all your efforts will flow more smoothly during these times if, where possible you postpone taking new initiatives, launching new projects, taking major trips, signing contracts or buying big things. Sometimes of course this is not possible in which case you want to be aware of all the details, do your research and make sure you aren’t acting out of fear or desperation. An astrologer can give you specific details of how this influence will play out in your life.
Generally, it’s a great time to take stock and put things in order. Remember, to every cycle there is a beginning middle and an end. To make a smooth transition from one period to the next it is helpful to appreciate where we have been, name our regrets, and revise our plans before moving forward. Often after a busy period of launching a new project, working extended hours, and pushing the envelope on life, our environment suffers. Your desk may be a mess, you’ve put off routine maintenance tasks or have not had time to get things fixed. A Mercury retrograde period can make for a very elegant transition period. Cleaning out closets and drawers, organizing your home and office, getting things fixed or repaired are all great Mercury retrograde activities. It’s an excellent time to edit your life.
So before starting the next year, use these dates to plot and strategically arrange important events such as major purchases and significant business initiatives. Use the retrograde periods to actively plan, evaluate, and put life back in order.
Your questions, comments and insights are welcomed.
With love and light,
