October 13/14 - November 3rd
Have you seen the topic of Mercury Retrograde come up in conversation lately?
You might have heard it having something to do with feeling a little weird and out of sorts?
Let’s take a closer look…
All of the planets rule over different parts of our lives and Mercury happens to rule over communication, transportation, travel and technology.
That is why this particular time is known for travel delays, email mishaps, computer crashes, arguments and misunderstandings…
Mercury rules over how we process and receive information, especially from which point of view we are perceiving it, which means this is a great time to observe how we are communicating in our relationships.
Are you making an effort to really listen to your partner, or are you just biting your tongue until it’s your turn to speak?
Is your partner truly listening to you?
There are so many aspects of communication we can explore at this time, with how we speak to ourselves being the most important.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ During this period, we can reflect on and let go of some of the older and ineffective ways we were communicating.
Mercury retrograde urges us to go inward.
Interestingly enough, this particular retrograde is in Scorpio, and with Scorpio being the sign that is known for investigation and its connection with the underworld, it is the perfect time to shine light on what parts of us need to be healed.
It is time to:
✨Restructure outdated ways of thinking
✨Learn how to trust in and communicate better with ourselves and those around us
✨Trust that the universe is leading us in the right direction
✨Release the need to force what is not meant to be
💫After the retrograde it is time to integrate everything we learned.💫
What feelings are coming up for you during this season?
In which areas of your life would you like to see communication improve?
