Mercury Retrograde Aug. 12 - Sept. 5

Guess what in addition to the powerful Eclipse Gateway energies we're feeling we are about to go through Mercury Retrograde! That's right; the infamous Mercury Retrograde period is right smack dab in the middle of this Eclipse Gateway.

Now before you lock yourself in a closet understand that Mercury Retrograde is not all bad. Although these Mercury retrograde periods can be frustrating, they are often useful too, for they allow us to reassess, revisit, readdress, redo, and redesign our plans. Sometimes we rush along in life without fully considering our basic assumptions or actions. Mercury retrograde allows us to stop, look, listen, and redirect our energies more productively. Mercury also helps us find closure to certain situations.

This is a wonderful time to clean out closets and cupboards.  Think of how these things could be useful to someone else and donate them to charity.  Pack up clothes that you no longer need and donate them to charity. When you clean your closets, you will find treasures you thought you lost or had completely forgotten about, always a bonus of going through things you have not seen in a while.

Mercury rules anything that begins with "re": redo, reassess, repair, repeat, redesign, or revisit.  So this is a wonderful opportunity to look at what needs to be repaired in your life and take the time to do so.

It's always human nature to want to hear that new opportunities are coming our way, but we really do need to focus on the quality of our work and improve it to the best it can be. Often this is a better use of our time than continually chasing the newest idea. Mercury retrograde allows you to be thorough and to perfect your life.

Stay open and adaptable if this proves true for you and remember that sometimes detours turn out to have blessings and hidden benefits that are even better than you could have planned!
