Mercury is about to go direct and with that, a lot of tension is going to be dying down. While we will still be influenced by these energies and others for a little while, they’re not going to be anywhere near as intense.
You see, Mercury is the planet that rules over communication and other things of the sort. When it is retrograding we are thrown out of whack and forced to really work hard to keep misunderstandings from happening. While the one we’ve been facing for the past few weeks hasn’t been as intense and has overall been more positive than most it’s not been amazing by any means.
As this planet goes direct we are offered a chance to really relax and set ourselves free. The more we allow these energies to shift the easier things will overall become. When this planet goes direct we are able to do more and really be ourselves in ways we otherwise would not be capable of.
This planet is in Cancer and thus brings Cancer energies forth. Cancer energies when going through a retrograde can be hard to handle but when moving properly gives us the chance to be more reasonable and truly express ourselves as we want to. We become more reliant on ourselves but also more willing to help others.
With this planet finally moving as it should and the energies surrounding it getting back to normal we should all expect to be less emotional. While the retrograde of Mercury brings out our emotional sides when it’s paired with Cancer energies things get hectic, to say the least. The more aware we are of all of this the better we can work through it.
Tarot.com wrote as follows on Mercury going direct:
It won’t be until Mercury reaches the degree where it originally turned retrograde and then passes it that you’ll know Mercury truly has its full strength back. That tends to take a couple of weeks. But don’t stress — this time frame is nothing at all like the Mercury Retrograde cycle.
In fact, now you’ll be ready to apply whatever it is you’ve learned during the retrograde period into your current reality. It only takes a few days of Mercury being back on track for you to notice the difference. From here on out the planet will get stronger every day!
What’s interesting is that while Mercury will need time to regulate its orbit, the very day of its stationing direct can be a potent time. It’s like Merc will be jolted awake for a short time (remember Mom screaming at you to wake up or you’ll be late for school?). During this day or even the next, it’s likely you’ll experience incredible clarity about whatever issues you’ve been grappling with during Mercury Retrograde.
Be patient, though … it will take just a little more time before you’re ready to execute your newfound lucidity with success.
In the meantime, now that Mercury is direct, over the next few days you are free to sign contracts, schedule vital meetings, have a significant conversation and make important decisions or purchases. Remain confident as you push ahead with anything that requires cerebral muscle.
Mercury finally has its mojo back!
Great things are coming, don’t be too stressed right now. Work to clear things out of your mind and move through things you see fit. While this planet going direct might feel a bit rocky at first, things will mellow out properly. These energies are finicky and once things are as they should be everything will fall into place.
