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.
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.
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!
