Mercury Retrograde for the Holidaysย 

โ€‹The next Mercury Retrograde Cycle begins tomorrow, December 19 and lasts through January 8, 2017 – and miscommunication is a seemingly inherent characteristic during nearly every Mercury Retrograde.  

It’s a good idea to carefully consider your words during the next couple of weeks,  (if not always!) in order to minimize misunderstandings, especially when it comes to the written word – otherwise your message could be lost in textlation! Keep in mind, Quick tempers + Quick tongues = Quick Karma!

It’s also important to listen carefully, and continue to summarize the things you are hearing – with your family, your partner, your besties, your employer/employees, and your clients – all of your key, or most meaningful  relationships.

Give people some slack, its the holidays after all – and Mercury Retro! Have patience; allow for not having the right words, the right tone, attitude, or perception… and ask your loved ones for the same consideration for the things you’re trying to communicate and aren’t getting across very well~

Allow others to express their truth without judgment, without shutting them down. Most of all, treat all of your relationships with compassion and kindness. 

During Mercury Retrograde this holiday season, kindness will go a long way in keeping relationships from their unnecessary demise.

There is a lot of energy flowing right now – energy for change – and it will be affecting many relationships- how it affects yours personally, could be entirely up to you~ 

If you’re armed with compassion, awareness, loving kindness, and patience – You are ready for this Retrograde Cycle!! 

Reflection is another of Mercury Retrograde’s most notable attributes. So feel free to reflect with some peace of mind and with a kind heart… Do your best to be gentle with yourself throughout your moments of reflection. As Byron Katie once said, “I am the source of my pain, but only all of it.”

Take a look back over your experiences – see what insights you’ve gained; what you wished you’d have done better or differently… the particular successes you celebrated; the difficult or painful experiences you overcame… and you are still here, living your story~ ๐Ÿ˜Š

These are but a few examples of what Mercury Retro may bring forward into your present experience… 

Just remember,  it’s absolutely fine to look at your past, just don’t stare!! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜š๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿ’™
