This is only a period of slowing down.
Mercury is about communication and expression. Mercury is also the messenger. He speaks to the truth. His action is to take things apart and put them back together. When Mercury goes Retrograde, it signals a time to look deep into your life, and see what needs to be taken apart, what needs to be kept and what needs to be released. It’s a time to speak truth to yourself about something you haven’t been honest about. What is being spoken to you in your internal and external dialogue? What are those thoughts and beliefs that hold you back from manifesting prosperity?
Work on healing that which comes up to be seen. Practice self-love, and self-care. Finish those projects you started but set aside, or those things you just keep putting off. Clean up all of your environment, both inward and outward. Go through your home, and remove that which you don’t need. Go through your thought processes, and remove that which doesn’t serve. Make room for new, better possibilities. Take time to dance, paint, and sing. Journal. Create and set goals and intentions for the life you want, along with steps to get there. Rest and ready yourself for when the time comes to act.
Mercury, the truth teller, is related to the throat chakra. Most discomfort during Mercury Retrograde comes from poor communication or expression of self. Practice extra self-care in this area. Speak your truth but don’t fall into judgment. Carry blue chalcedony, blue tiger’s eye, or blue lace agate to help with calm, clear expression. Chrysocolla and amazonite will help with communicating directly from the heart. Start your morning humming. Wear blue. Repeat positive affirmations throughout your day. Meditate to communicate with your higher self.
Go inward and root to your truth, ground in love, and then just ride the waves
