Evening all hope your all well sorry I’ve not blogged in a few days I’ve been busy with work and trying to relax on the evenings.
It’s that dreaded time of year again were mercury is in retrograde and everything you have progressed forwards try’s to reverse all your hard work back a few months.
It makes you think….
So what’s a mercury retrograde?
Mercury’s backward tour through the sky becomes a convenient scapegoat whenever a flight is delayed, laptop glitchy, or email goes astray. But the actual meaning of Mercury retrograde isn’t just some run of bad luck. It’s astrology’s way of forcing us to review, recheck and revisit.
In our technology-focused society where emails, texts, and reliable WiFi are everything, the planet of communication has a big job. And when Mercury goes haywire during its retrograde phase, its effects hit us where it hurts. After all, you’re reading this on your phone between Snaps, texts, booking flights and mapping your route to the restaurant you made an online reservation for, right? Understandably, if your phone suddenly shuts down, a message gets lost, or travel is delayed, you’re majorly inconvenienced.
What exactly is the science behind Mercury retrograde?
First off, the name is deceptive. It’s not as if the planet actually reverses its orbit. Simply explained, Mercury retrograde describes an optical illusion which makes it look as if the planet is moving backwards from our viewpoint on earth. During this perceived backwards motion, anything to do with communication, technology or contracts can get majorly screwed up.
Mercury is associated with communication, information, electronics, travel, and even clear thinking, so when it’s retrograde we have to be ready for a slowdown in all of those areas. Things break. Projects stall. We lose things. Breakups happen. Schedules are thrown off, we get frustrated, we lash out and more breakdowns in communications follow. The effects of Mercury retrograde aren’t all in your imagination – but it isn’t all bad news either.
Mercury retrograde may feel like it’s shaking up your entire world, and it’s true. This aspect affects health, and career moves, but it also means different issues for each sign. Knowing what to do and what to expect is one of the best ways to handle Mercury retrograde.
As Mercury’s final backspin of the year kicks off on Oct. 31, it’ll plunge us into a particularly intense retrograde period in the water sign Scorpio, which will make for an emotional ride. “Mercury retrograde will be in extra emotional and intuitive “We will want to forgive others, but not [be] able to forget which may cause issues in moving forward with others.”
If I’m completely honest it feels like I’ve been in retrograde last nine months I’m pushing forwards to find myself going backwards.
I’ve been in the no communication band now for at least seven months and sometimes the silence is what’s needed to move on but I’m a massive believer that you put out what you get back in life and I know I am very harsh with my words at times but what I say is out of anger I am very feisty in nature but when I love I love hard and I always care even if I say I don’t.
Being a virgo its kind of hard not to care.
I’m hoping when this retrograde is over 2020 will be a clearer start to the year I’ve made lots of plans already to keep me busy so I’m trying to keep postive and upbeat.
I think sometimes we all need a shake up at times so if retrograde is what we need we need make way for the new and all that.
If retrograde makes me re think and re look over the past year I would say its been pretty painful and messy but going over old ground won’t change this past or the outcome.
We can’t force anyone to come back to us or for changes to happen without working on situations.
I just wish I would of been able to go back and change situations but now I feel it maybe to late.
You love and you loose you live and let go.
So if the next few weeks you feel like your being taken back a few months….
I’m sure you will all survive just hold on tight.
I hope you have a great Friday Im happy it’s nearly the weekend.
Love to you all 😊
