Mercury Retrograde

(This is something a friend of mine sent me to my email address and I thought I'd share parts of it with the JPG community.)

Mercury retrograde is a maintenance period, perfect for revisiting everything one has not gotten to in the last several months. The planet Mercury is associated with the god mercury/ Hermes who is the 'god of the unexpected' and divine coincidences. Hermes/Mercury is the creator of new and sacred spaces.

Mercury retrograde is inevitable regardless of our best-laid plans; we might just get a taste of unexpected luck in a serendipitous coyote medicine type of way. Mercury makes us go to the picnic in the pouring rain and have a great time. It asks us to be fluid in our day and remain flexible, having as many backup plans as it takes. Whenever things seem 'stuck,' Mercury/Hermes introduces fluid movement laced with little chunks of surprise. Mercury retro is all about getting unstuck in thought deed and dreams forgotten.

Mercury in retrograde can be a deep healer of the soul. It asks you to look at what you do not want to address, what you do not want to clear up, what you do not want to heal. The winged messenger sits pondering what he should be doing, what he could be doing, what he was supposed to do. Mercury retrograde is a magical time of slowing down, being made to stop and smell the flowers. It asks you to pay special attention to detail to pay special attention to what is small and minute.

It asks you to address everything that you are afraid of remembering, of becoming, of doing. Call those that you haven't talked to in months or years or decades. Look backwards in time but don't lick your wounds.

Get ready to plant new seeds in your soul. Time beckons you to walk through the past, picture by picture, memory by memory. Having No regrets about who you were or what you did. Allow this mercury retrograde to youth you, to take you back to when you were a child of wonder. Recapture your youth through your memories and then shift those memories into fairy dust and sprinkle it on your life. See the kid in everyone around you and play like your life depends upon it.


Mercury retrograde asks you to look at what you do not want to address, what you do not want to clear up, what you do not want to heal. The winged messenger Mercury has a small limp at this time, as he sits upon a stone beckoning the sacred waters from the healing well to run across his stress lines. He sits there pondering what he should be doing, what he could be doing, what he was supposed to do. The strain upon his winged feet demands he slow in energy, in walk, in thought.

Mercury retrograde is a magical time of slowing down, or being made to stop, to smell the flowers of your life. It asks you to pay special attention to detail to pay special attention to what is small and minute.

Time beckons you to her side as she walks through the past, picture by picture, memory by memory, thought by thought. The spirit of Time takes you past the fine lines of scrutiny. No bah hum bugs about who you were, what you were, or what you did.
Every thread of you is woven into the beautiful tapestry you are now and even if you do not see the beauty reflected in your own eyes, it truly comes as a mirror from Source. Let those around you reflect that beauty with their kindness.
