Today is the start of Mercury Retrograde in Libra season. I like this combination of energy. Mercury gets picked on a lot, and you’ll hear a lot of fear stories around the season. It would help if you always went with what feels suitable for you. I like MR; it has a purpose, or it wouldn’t show up three times this year. In-Universe there are reasons why everything happens. If you wish to see these periods as hard AF and want them over, please roll with that.
However, I am here to share my thoughts and how I work with MR, not against it.
Let’s start with Libra season, which is all about harmony. The scales of balance represent Libra. They are bringing everything back together to remember the one wholeness within us all. Libra loves all things that radiate beauty and not just the conditioned stereotype of beauty; look beyond that. The simple, beautiful things. Each one of us will have different takes on what is beautiful, which is brilliant. Then all things will get loved.
There is an indulgent side to Libra too. Again, all about bringing harmony to nourish the Soul. Indulgence doesn’t have to be expensive or lavish. Taking ten minutes to read your book in the middle of the day may fall into this category.
What about Mercury?
Mercury is the planet of communication and self-expression. It invites us to take a long hard look at what our truth is. Are you aligned with your values? MR is a time to take things slow, to go inward and communicate with your Self. If something is off, then how can you find harmony again?
Living your truth does get confused as an excuse to project your views right, left and centre. The more you connect inwardly, the less you may need to express outwardly. I love the message from Mercury to ‘go quietly.’ Doing your work is personal, private, and a special experience unique to you. Sitting quietly in your heart space is where you find your truth. It’s an unspoken ‘feeling’ that words may not be able to express. Truth is a knowing, a way of living that will radiate from you without a loudspeaker or soapbox.
Mercury creates an opportunity to unearth what has not been resolved inside. That is when you might perceive MR as ‘rough.’ Again, the Universe is not against you; it’s gently guiding you. Blame is a way of bypassing what you don’t want to see. If you aren’t ready and push it back down, know it will come up again. Give it a go now, even if you chip a little away of what needs to be done. Then next time it won’t be as big.
What can you do?
Journaling is a great tool to get things’ out’ and clear energy. Dump all that needs to be seen onto paper. It’s amazing what starts to flow when you do.
Make sure you back up your technology. Sometimes these things go a bit squiffy at these times.
Also, Mercury can affect our travel plans or plans in general. It reminds us to be flexible, and things are open to change. Nothing is every set inset-in-stone. Learn to be fluid.
I hope this post helps to soothe any fears around MR that may be present. Go quietly and mindfully for the next three weeks.
Until next time,
