Double Whammy – Recession + Retrograde!
May 30th, 2008
Ok, so don’t get too nervous…this too shall pass. In the last week, we experienced some difficult energy. You may have felt a lot of forward motion in early May only to feel a sudden halt on or near the week of the 26th. Well, you’re not alone. With the economy issues and Mercury going into retrograde on the 26th, you’re bound to feel a little shaken.
Don’t be surprised if you’re feeling stuck or even a bit depressed. If you have job issues or own a business, you could worried a bit more than usual. Watch your thoughts! Remember that thoughts can manifest into material form. Luckily, the rusty wheel has started to make a shift today, but slowly (so don’t get too excited.) You still have to watch contracts during this time, and make sure to double check everything!
If you are new to the term Mercury Retrograde, click here to check out a good site. This astrological aspect happens three times a year for three weeks at a time. This is not a good time to sign contracts or for anything new. Yes, this means buying a new car, new home, getting married, or meeting a new romantic partner. If you are reading this, and you’re thinking, “Oh no! I just did one of these things! Am I doomed??”
No! This is not a time of doom for you. It is rather a time of miscommuncation, misunderstandings, and confusion. You must DOUBLE CHECK everything, because the mind is a little clouded. The planet Mercury itself does not spin on a reverse axis, it just appears that way.
Now, let’s look at the bright side. Mercury Rx is very good for a number of things including:
- Getting in touch with old friends
- Anything “re’s” Redo, Remodel, Replace, Revise
- Great time to finish up old projects or “tie up loose ends”
- Great time to research past lives
- Listening to old music
- Discuss memories with friends and family
- RELAX and REJUVENATE!
- One of my favorites: watch some old 80’s flicks like Back To The Future
This aspect will continue until June 19th, and of course there is the Mercury Rx shadow a few days before and after! It’s always good to know you’re not alone
