While 2020 promises to be more than an innovative and shock factor year, we have plenty of Awakening the Unexpected that accompanies how we will witness this amplified and surprising time in our history unfold. As we look to our regular Mercury Retrograde (MRx) passages (which always occur about three times during any given year) we have additional timeframes to be acutely aware of due to other inner planet cycles of reflection that will intertwine along with them.
Understanding Mercury Retrograde and what it actually is meant to positively do for anyone is wise timing is everything wisdom to always take into consideration for our planning and scheduling needs. These recurring astrological cycles are mistakenly overly associated with fear and frustration, which absolutely is not the reaction we are ever meant to have with them.
Mercury Retrograde is always first and foremost: A Cycle of Reflection.
Read that last statement again.
The only reasons Mercury Retrogrades “trip up” anyone is that, one: most people are unaware it is in effect because they have never been introduced to the value of astrology, and naively choose to make initiations for intended long term success during them; Two: those who are aware of it are fooled into believing they should fear it every time it comes back around because they are simply misinformed.
If you know what not to do, and most importantly, what you absolutely can do under these reflective, recharging, reassessment and ultimate “time out” periods: you will always be in the energetic flow of Mastering Mercury Retrograde.
