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
