Mercury retrograde comes around about 3 times a year with it starting again on December 19 and ending January 8, 2017. So what does it all mean? Are we doomed, is everything going to break or can we expect small disturbances?
According to astrologyanswers.com, “Mercury retrogrades aren’t a great time to start anything new. Rather, they’re a time for ‘10 Rs’- reflection, retrospection, review, rethink, remorse, recant, react, reconnect, reacquaint, and readjust. It’s also a time when you need to err on the side of caution. It’s not a period for making commitments and if you do have to engage in contracts and obligations during this time, be absolutely sure you aren’t acting on impulse. It would be wise to get a second opinion on any papers that you have to sign. Double check all meetings and travel plans, and never hesitate to ask someone to repeat details, or even put it in writing, to avoid confusion later on.”
Instead of focusing on the disaster most of us associate with Mercury Retrograde, focus inward. Focus on your thoughts, reflect on your life and think about what you truly want out of life and prepare for it! Now’s the time to prepare for the new beginning when Mercury goes direct so you’ll be in the perfect position to propel your life forward in the wonderful new year.
At this Christmas time, rejoice in the anticipation of a new life you can create with your thoughts alone!
