Mercury has gone retrograde and there’s nothing you can do about it but ride it out! Communication is off, thoughts are unclear, and our internal navigation system seems to have its head in the clouds – that’s because mercury rules communication and words and has a precision energy. But instead of dwelling on all the chaos Mercury retrograde brings us, why not focus on using it to our advantage…


Slow down.

Delays happen a lot during this time, and there’s nothing you can do about it. So, allow it to happen, and use the extra time you have found yourself with, to your benefit. Journal, work on that project you’ve been sidling for months, spend some time with your family- the options are endless. Just try not to spend the time being frustrated, that’s not ideal.


Process your emotions

Mercury retrograde can bring up a lot of feelings, especially since this one is in Pisces. Emotions might be flying everywhere during the next few weeks, instead of jumping to conclusions and reacting, set some time aside to write down what’s coming up, and then deal with it when mercury goes direct. Use this time to journal once a day, this will get everything off your chest so you’re less likely to just blurt things out!


Practice Patience

Ah a trait that can test us hugely. Like we said above, lots of emotions and technological faults happen around this time, so the best thing to do is be patient. Allow whatever it is that is happening in your world to happen, and try not to let it anger or frustrate you. Try not to get heated in the event, that will probably only cause you to say things you don’t mean. Stay calm, process your thoughts, and where you can, put things aside and handle them when mercury is direct.


Mercury goes direct March 28th 2019, try not let Mercury Retrograde get in your way!
