hey ya’ll. happy monday – did you have a nice weekend? i had a foto shoot saturday, but relaxed all day sunday… did a little work around the tiny home, and organized some things that needed organized – that always feels great, doesn’t it?!
i promised i would write about mercury retrograde for the duration of its journey… and although i’m tired and not feeling as “wordy” as i did last week – well, i’m a woman of my word – so here we go.
last week i went on and on about how awesome it was that i discovered my mercury retrograde and how i can utilize the energies that come about when it takes a backward journey. thank you so much for reading a little about me! a whole week has now passed and i still feel a little more “normal” than normal, but i also have noticed that my overall ability to just let go of things has come with more ease…
it’s amazing how much “stuff” we carry with us – ideals adopted from our families or social groups, our schooling, our peers, and our every day interactions with things even like the internet, phones, and public places. often times, this may leave us feeling confused and wondering “who we are” or “where we belong” – because for so long we’ve just done what was expected of us, or followed the masses. all the while, those adopted patterns, beliefs, or behaviors, may not actually resonate with who we are as individuals. i’m working very diligently on changing my own personal paradigms, so that i may walk about this earth with more comfort, confidence, and grace… and ultimately, more love… for myself, and for others. sometimes this means changing behaviors or habits within, in order to aid in revealing the most authentic version of myself.
scorpio is one intense sign – and when mercury is traveling through it, who knows what can surface. scorpio isn’t afraid of the dark, and so if there are things that are hidden or “pushed down” within your consciousness, MR in scorpio will most likely bring it to your mind’s surface to expose it. maybe not, just something to consider… and if “uncomfortable” hidden things do in fact find their way into your thoughts, my advice is to listen to your gut and be open to releasing, because you could be trying to tell yourself something very important 🙂
i should mention that planets don’t “make things happen” but they do provide insight into consciousness shifts within us. and i always believe “as above, so below” … so don’t be freaked out into thinking that you have no control over the situation or that you are doomed to encounter obstacles during this time. just be aware, and for goodness’ sake, use your intuition – the animals do!
mercury retrograde is all about slowing down and being introspective… examining what comes at us, enters our minds, and effects our energy fields. during the next two weeks, mercury will continue to travel through scorpio, and our thoughts will likely be transformative. scorpio rules death and rebirth. this is an outstanding opportunity to “just let go” – of anything that doesn’t serve a purpose to you anymore. of any person, place, or thing, that doesn’t make you feel ALIVE. anything that doesn’t support you, uplift you, and assist in making your dreams come true – simply isn’t worth your energy… so let it die – this will create space for new beginnings and new blossoms of love…
at least, that’s the mentality i’m maintaining during this time.
have a great day!
