Now this is a fun post! This is just merely my impression of Mercury retrograde....my nemesis! Some of you may know about Mercury Retrograde and its wonderful affects!!! From April 9 – May 3, 2017 Mercury will be in Retrograde while in earth-sign Taurus, to fire-sign Aries. Now it's been in a shadow phase since March 27th. So you may have noticed a few of it's delightful signs......I have!!
Mercury rules all types of communication
Mercury also rules all formal contracts and agreements, as well as important documents such as book manuscripts or term papers, agreements, deeds, contracts, leases, wills, and so forth.
I strongly recommend you DO NOT do any of the above until after Mercury goes direct!
Since Mercury rules the mail and the conveyance of information, be extra careful when sending important documents. This also goes for email! So confirm whoever you are sending these emails too DID indeed go to the intended recipient! Last year my ENTIRE email server went down and I was unable to send or receive emails for about a week!!! Not a fun thing!!!!
You will notice miscommunication will be ALL over the place! Whether it be with your kids, family, friends, clients it's gonna happen! You are going to have to laugh it off! And just reside to the fact your life is going to go upside down. And when it does what should you do? Grab a glass of wine, beer, coffee, tea water.....Whatever your drink of choice is and just accept it!
Mercury retrograde periods are famous for causing computers to crash and for machines, appliances, and other electronic devices to show signs of wear, requiring urgent repair. Backup your computer in advance. Weird things happen during these periods.
If you are driving any long distance during a period where Mercury is retrograde, bring extra maps (or make sure your GPS is up to date), make sure you have enough gas, and check that you have the correct address and clear driving instructions. On one of my jobs that I had to go to 3 separate times during Mercury Retrograde. GPS took me 6 different ways and it wouldn't have been so bad if I had a clue as to where I was at!! I got very lost coming home one of the times and Mercury Retrograde heard some not nice words come out of my mouth!!
So my words of advice from April 9th-May 3rd hang on folks....it's gonna be a bumpy annoying ride....And from March 26-April 8 (pre-shadow) and from May 4-21 (post shadow) it may be a little off. Grab your drink of choice and enjoy the ride! And just keep in mind........after these dates, if things go wacky....it's all you!
Let me start off this blog with a little information about Venus Retrograde. "Old friends or lovers may reappear or you may relive past life experiences in order to sort out karmic issues. As Venus also rules money, it’s traditionally thought that Venus retrograde is not an ideal time for investing or buying luxury items.' -Astrology King. So with that being said let me add my twist to that.
I had a relationship that lasted 6 years. It was for the most part a good relationship. However, there were some bad times. Unfortunately, those bad times were BAD. Over the course of the last year, I have forgiven him. To the point that I saw and remembered the good times. And realized, I didn't hate him. Over the past 6 months I saw the signs that he was going to contact me, his name popped up in weird places, a name I was associated with him came up and so on and so forth. But in normal Laura fashion, I ignored them. Well, Venus retrograde struck and I received an email. Now I saw the name come up on my email and I braced myself. I thought to myself...you idiot why do you ignore the signs? So I stared at the notification for a few minutes. Knowing that it was going to be full of excuses. So curiosity got the best of me. I opened it. WOAH, not even close to what I was expecting. A very sincere apology. Outlining everything. I was shocked. And even a little relieved. I responded nicely and told him I forgave him and I didn't hate him. I had expected the emails to stop after that. Well they didn't. We went back and forth catching each other up on what we were up to and discussing the past and asking questions and receiving answers. We have spent time together and enjoyed each other and again cleared up the past. Even laughed about some of the bad times.
Now anyone in my past would think I was crazy for even "entertaining" his email. However, it has been nice. I forgive easily. I don't hold grudges. I have changed a lot, for the better. Why can't someone else? Especially when they truly want to change. I haven't completely come out and told people we were talking again and because of Venus retrograde that will probably wait until the middle of May before I truly decide what I am going to do. For the time being I am going to enjoy the time we do have together and wait and see how this plays out. According to research he showed up to teach me something or he is here for good.
My point of this blog is retrogrades are legitimate. There is a reason things come up during these time periods. Take this time to grow and learn. That is what they are there for! I am definitely paying attention what Saturn and Jupiter have in store for me as they are also in Retrograde right now :-)
Hi there! I am new to the blogging thing so bare with me. I have had a long path at life and this year I decided to change that. The Law Of Attraction right? Positive thinking brings positve action. This blog is about the research I have done on making my life better.
