The Blessing of Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde is done and the planet has gone direct again. I have to be honest—I'm a bit relieved. This one was a bit more challenging than the ones in the past. Why? Well, for me, I think I was in a place where I was ready to dive deep and clean house and Mercury Retrograde was more than happy to help me out in that department.

Now don't misunderstand me—I don't believe that Mercury Retrograde causes all of our problems. I don't believe it's responsible for all miscommunications or tech going wonky. I know it's a popular idea right now to blame it for everything, but personally, I don't think that's how it works. However, I do think that it brings things to the surface that need to be seen and need to be healed.

This round, the healing was taking place in my relationships, my life balance, and my work. It was a lot to process and I'm still needing time to make sense of it all, but I'm crazy grateful that I got a different perspective on things.

So as this Mercury Retrograde comes to end, I ask you to take time to go back and reflect on it. What rose to the surface for you? What area of your life felt like it all fell apart? What was Mercury Retrograde trying to show you? What gift was it bringing to your door? Make some space to think what you learned and what was being presented to you. It's during these challenging times that our soul makes the most growth.
