It’s that time again, that many spiritualists dread: the Mercury retrograde. But, before you start gathering your crystals, saying your chants, and cleansing your home, you may want to hear me out first.
While many will warn you to not travel, sign contracts, or touch electronics during this time frame, Mercury retrogrades last around eight weeks and happen 3-4 times a year. Realistically, if we put our lives on hold each time a retrograde occurred, we could end up living the majority of our year in a spiritual bubble, and who has time for that?
Mercury is a planet that governs our communication and thoughts which can explain many of the issues we encounter during its retrograde…
Beginning July 26th at 1:02 a.m. ET, Mercury will begin its descent into Leo. Oftentimes, when a retrograde begins, we will see electronic glitches, past emotions come to light and other issues. But that isn’t all we should expect during this time.
On the contrary, there are many amazing factors that can come into play as well. Especially with Mercury moving into Leo. Because of Mercury’s movement into Leo, we will have more confidence than ever, showing through our communication, expression and more. We may even have more freedom of thought.
Don’t get me wrong, we may encounter some issues along the way, however, if we focus all of our attention on the things that can go wrong, we will completely miss the positive aspects of the upcoming retrograde. And that would be a shame…
