Mercury in Retrograde - What it means and what to do about it!



Between your ex’s popping up, your computer glitching, losing your keys 1,000 times and your car breaking down…you’re probably ready for Mercury Retrograde to be over. I feel you. But there are ways you can not just survive Mercury Retrograde, but actually grow and thrive.


Get Closure


It seems like every time Mercury is in retrograde, exes, old friends and people from your past start popping up all over the place. This makes sense if you look at the word “retrograde.” The prefix of retrograde, “re,” literally means to go back, to do again.


If you have unresolved issues or business with someone, Mercury’s retrograde can actually act as a positive force, bringing that person back into your life so you can achieve closure.  If you use these awkward reunions to your advantage, you can move on to that new relationship or job with a clean slate. Instead of freaking out when people from the past pop up, take this opportunity to make sure you aren’t dragging baggage along with you to the next phase of your life.


Reconnect


Mercury’s retrograde is actually the perfect time for a trip — down memory lane. Especially to return to a place you’ve gone before, or reaching out to people from your past. Reconnect with old friends for a reunion, or go back and visit a place you love. Just be careful when making travel plans, because Mercury can create havoc with transportation!


Reflect on Yourself


As humans, we’re not perfect. We are messy, ever-changing creatures who constantly evolve. While Mercury is in retrograde, it is the perfect time to look at the themes and issues in your life that keep coming up. Take a good look in the mirror and evaluate your own unfinished emotional business. What is your life trying to tell you? Pay attention, because during this time those old issues are bound to come up.


Organize Your Space


Think about your home for a moment. Your home is the living embodiment of your past – the furniture you bought and pieces you loved enough to put in your personal space is everywhere. But this can also lead to a lot of clutter and dead energy, and might even keep you trapped in the past.


This is the perfect time to clear out the clutter in your life. If you really want to evolve yourself, clear out space where you spend the most time: Your home.
