Mercury turns Direct out of Retrograde!!
Mercury has finally left its Retrograde cycle! Can I get a HOORAY!! Heavy Deep Sigh and Exhale, Haha! This has been one wild ride!
Mentally strong Mercury, the planet that rules over our way of thinking, communication, and forward movement is finally turning direct this morning, after being in its Retrograde (backward) cycle since March 22nd. Over the coming weeks ahead, the problems we’ve been experiencing with communication, decision-making, and glitchy electronics will start to improve. Slowly, over the next few weeks will be able to make decisions once again. But be patient folks, as this energy doesn’t change over night, it actually takes some time to get back to normal. Just be thankful that we’re on the right track again.
Any plans or projects you couldn’t get finished over the last few months can at least slowly get started with some potential for success. But we must start out very cautiously and take baby steps, because we actually can be flooded with too much information and it can be overwhelming. This can make matters even more confusing and difficult to make sense of. Actually, it’s just good practice to wait before making any important decisions for the time being, as our thinking isn’t quite clear and there still can be major consequences for jumping ahead.
During the Mercury in Retrograde Shadow period we should take all necessary precautions, moving ahead slowly and not committing to anything long-term just yet! Make sure to back up computers and phones, get your passwords organized (if that’s possible, ha!) Make sure your Cloud Storage is working correctly and backed up. Keep up with your bills and make sure everything is organized and paid on time. These are just a few ways to ensure you won’t have to deal with some of the glitchy aftermath that the Shadow Period can cause.
In fact, this after “Shadow Phase” of Mercury Retrograde coupled along with all the other energies and the powerful New Moon can simply be too much energy to handle and very distracting. The clarity we seek isn’t readily available under this changeable energy. This Shadow period is about processing what we have learned during the actual Retrograde Cycle. Mercury’s Retrograde cycle might have thrown you completely off balance, but the question is what lessons did you learn? What challenges or changes did Mercury Retrograde bring up? Take advantage of this Shadow period, until Mercury turns completely direct around May 3rd.
For example, maybe you realized your judgemental BFF or friend was just reacting to how you have been slowly, or passive aggressively been critiquing or criticizing their lives! Oops! The second half of the Shadow Phase is when you really can start participating in a new more kind way of expressing how you feel to your friend. So take some time to explain how their actions are bugging you and why. This can be what fixes the friendship enough to keep it together.
Try to wait out making any sudden moves if at all possible, and if you’re needing to make any major changes just try to wait until after May 3rd, when the after Shadow phase of Mercury’s Retrograde cycle is over and done until next time. Enjoy!!
