Getting Our Mercury Retrograde On
My good intention was to post this several days ago, and then I lost track of time since I’ve been busy talking about the Sedona Soul Magic Retreat in June. But have no fear because Mercury Retrograde is still here!
You’ve probably read all the hype that I have, and maybe even starting twitching with worry about all the things that can go wrong. The current Mercury Retrograde period generally happens from February 17 through March 10, 2020 but we can feel the energy several days before or after.
Now, I’m a lot of things, but being an Astrologer isn’t one of them so I look to a few high quality, non-hype intuitive astrologers to help guide me through this time period.
One of them is a wonderfully down-to-earth Intuitive Healer and Channel, Ellen M. Gregg. She sends out a weekly Soul Letter email with Missives and Messages that are always fascinating to read, in addition to other emails like one of her latest talking about Mercury Retrograde.
While Mercury Retrograde is a time to re-view, re-peat, and re-visit, it can also be a time to re-new, re-vise, re-lish… Ok, that was a bit of a stretch.
Just yesterday, I was busy working with my mind fully engaged in writing, and all of a sudden, I had a random thought about my ex. I literally stopped typing in my tracks and thought, really? This was a case of ego bringing up something for me to re-visit. It gave me an opportunity to realize I may need to do more forgiveness work around it, and I see that as helpful, not hurtful.
As Ellen shares in her channeled message, there is something about the energy during this period that helps us to embrace it in a more useful way, instead of feeling attacked by it.
“We ask you for an awareness of the incapacitating frequency the ego can put forth when it feels challenged. The energy of the week we enter contains such a challenge and will perhaps put the ego on an alert that may create inhibitions. Permit that you will quell the ego’s concerns and allow yourself to fully imbibe from and inhabit the energies engaging with the planet in the week ahead.”
If nothing else, try to view things that come up in the next couple of weeks from the viewpoint of an observer. At least for me, that seems to be where the magic happens.
