So, I am sure that you are going to get sick of hearing two words by the end of March – Mercury retrograde.
Of course, most people know what happens during Mercury’s retrograde status because it has seeped into pop-culture and has become part of our everyday vocabulary. For those of you that are not aware, look at this list:
- Potential communication issues
- Do not sign documents, move, or make firm decisions
- Electronics may become problematic, especially computers and cell phones.
- Possible automobile issues.
- Travel issues and concerns.
That is some list, isn’t it? But don’t fret Mercury retrograde can be used as a positive tool and with Mercury making several aspects this week, it’s a great time to work with him rather than against him.
In mythology, Mercury played several roles, but the two most important were messenger of the gods and the psychopomp that ushered the souls of the dead into the underworld. Psychologically, you could say that Mercury rules the process of the conscious mind, the process of the unconscious becoming conscious, and all the processes in between.
During this retrograde cycle pay close attention to your dreams, fantasies, and the areas where Mercury is causing chaos because it will hold the keys to the areas of your life where attention may be required. Ultimately, by actively encouraging the unconscious to become conscious, Mercury retrograde may help you level up and begin a new cycle in your life.
Now, on with the forecast…
