Mercury Retrograde in Libra: Influences and Gifts

Mercury Retrograde

Mercury Retrograde in Libra began on September 17 and goes until October 9th but we began feeling the effects of the retrograde since August 28th.

Slow downs, delays, miscommunications, missed appointments, technology break downs or having to go back and re-do completed projects. All due to the influences of Mercury Retrograde.

There are few astrological events that put more fear and angst into the lives of the metaphysical community than the mere mention that  Mercury is about to enter (or is in) it’s retrograde phase.

The real beauty of Mercury Retrograde are the gifts we receive. Yes, there are things to be aware of during this phase but the ‘influences’ don’t have to control our lives. Each of us has the free will to transcend and use the time and influences to our advantage.

Mercury Retrograde periods can cause our plans to go awry so be sure to check and double-check your schedule. Awareness and a bit of extra communication will certainly go a long way. Intuition is high during these periods, and coincidences and synchronicity can be extraordinary.

Mercury is known as the trickster so you’ll want to be more mindful. Mercury RX has a way of tricking us into seeing or hearing things differently than how they are but ONLY if we are not aware. Another gift is that Mercury will surely show us those places we could use some awareness.

If you must sign a contract, make sure the “i”s are dotted and “t”s are crossed. Your life isn’t going to stop and more often than not, in the slow down you will catch mistakes that were already there. This is yet another one of the gifts we receive!

Although it seems as if mistakes seem to show up more during the retrograde cycle it is our heightened awareness that guides us to see what we might have missed. Of course take precautions but find your amusement if you need to go back and tweak something.

This is truly a time to embrace patience and really open your eyes to the spiritual gifts of reflect and review. One of the greatest gifts of Mercury Retrograde is to shine a light on those things from our past we either didn’t want to look at or weren’t ready to release until now.

Many times we are conflicted and simply want to stuff our pain into the deepest parts of our psyche. When we allow it to come forth we are finally able to forgive and release. With Mercury Retrograde in Libra we have to opportunity to really clear out some deep-set beliefs, fear and pain.

The Gift of Mercury Retrograde in Libra will become very clear as we re-establish balance and harmony in our relationships and in our lives. Libra is all about the scales of justice and instead of judging from one side or the other, helps us to move back to center.

Libra, symbolized by the scales, is always weighing two ideals and finding balance between opposing viewpoints. When we find balance, the mid-point, we become neutral and see both sides. Our neutrality allows us to release without resistance.

Ever the diplomat, Libra is going to bring up those places you’ve felt wronged or that justice wasn’t served. As you reflect and review you’re going to finally uncover the truth behind misunderstandings thus allowing you to forgive those who have maligned you. Libra may also allow you to see with a different perspective those things you may have questioned in the past.

Libra’s ruling planet is Venus so although at times the truth hurts, you will finally see the beauty in the lesson. This cycle is about heightened awareness, finding neutral and, of course, balance and harmony; As long as you don’t resist or push away what you are being shown, Venus will help you move through this ginormous growth period with grace and ease.

All in all this will be an interesting Retrograde cycle. We are going to be shown all those places we’re out of balance. Consider the gifts you are receiving from the Universe as you RE-flect, RE-visit, RE-view and RE-lease anything and everything that’s kept you out of balance.

Slow down and use this opportunity to receive your gifts of added insight, truth, peace and harmony. The gifts are there and who doesn’t like presents?~Shine Your Light Debbie

Healing Spirit: Coming Together as One

shattered_lifeEvery morning I jump out of bed and step on a landmine. The landmine is me. After the explosion, I spent the rest of the day putting the pieces together.”~Ray Bradbury

There are times in life when we feel like we are, or about to, shatter into a million little pieces. Everything is falling apart and the overwhelm is a mountain that seems impossible to climb.

Believe it or not, this is a time to rejoice because when everything is falling apart, we are in the midst of a great spiritual healing; A reorganization of all that is. The explosion happens not because we are being punished but because we are more interested in the truth than the illusion.

While it is true it may take us time to put the pieces back together, more than likely we will put them together differently. Once shattered, we are able to see beyond the illusion. We are able to see beyond what we thought was there. We see the truth of who we are with greater clarity and are able to move forward with our creative design with more certainty.

Reinventing YourselfWhat if the shattering isn’t about something coming apart as much as it’s about revealing something more? What if the shattering is the healing? What if the “landmines” you step on are more about blowing up the lies and those pieces you get to put back together create a stronger foundation because they are built on truth? What if the shattering is about becoming more?

Shifting, changing and healing causes major disruption and often feels like we are shattering into a million little pieces. It takes us out of our comfort zone, brings up fear and causes us to re-evaluate everything. Once shattered we may experience feeling raw and vulnerable BUT we also feel more like ourselves.

The beauty of things falling apart is each of us has the ability to create something completely different with the pieces. The shattering is, in effect, a personal renewal. A time to re-invent ourselves. A time to shine. When we shatter it is a time of reflection as we decide how to put the pieces back together.

We are the artist and we choose how we want to put the pieces back into place yet instead of a puzzle where all the pieces must fit together in a specific way, there are infinite possibilities. We can add color, depth and hue.

At one time or another each of us will wake up in the morning and step on a landmine which has been the illusion of truth. We change how we see ourselves and recognize that maybe we ARE who we think we are instead of who others tell us we are. We will pick up the pieces and re-organize our lives. We will organize around our own self.

We shatter, we look at the pieces, we begin the process of putting them back together in a new way. We integrate all that we are as we become more of who we are. We will heal our spirit and come together as one within so we may become one with the all.~Shine Your Light Debbie
