If you’re a Spirited Woman who’s had difficulty over the past two and a half weeks with your computer, cell phone, television (or other technological/electronic equipment)—not to mention issues around travel delays, missing tickets, or scheduling snafus—rest assured that your troubles will soon abate.
I myself traveled cross-country last week and upon arrival at my destination (after six hours on an airplane), discovered my computer had crashed. You can’t get much more Mercury retrograde than that!
However, there is an end in sight…
On Monday, January 25, Mercury the messenger god will begin to appear to stop moving in the sky—this is called a “station”—and slowly appear to pick up speed once again over the next week or so.
Unreturned phone calls, unanswered emails, and Facebook messages that you’d begun to assume never reached their destination will slowly but surely be returned, answered, and received. In short, communication will resume its pre-Mercury retrograde pace.
Now that the first Mercury retrograde period of 2016 is almost over, it pays to take a look again at how during this time you may have experienced the subtle exchange of information between your conscious brain and subconscious.
As I mentioned last week, this current Mercury retrograde cycle is occurring in the sign of Capricorn--representative of the type of concrete tangible manifestation that’s connected with our ego’s definition of “success.”
You may want to look back at this period—when all is said and done—and conduct a Mercury retrograde review. In this way you may begin to attempt to discover where tangible concrete progress toward discerning whether your ego’s definition of “success” is in alignment with what your soul needs to be truly happy and fulfilled.
As our world begins to slowly return to normal, let us start to connect the dots of Mercury retrogrades’ true purpose: to allow the integration of our conscious thoughts and desires with that of our deeply rooted unconscious needs.
Your attitude toward your finances and material possessions may be ripe for scrutiny now. Any changes necessary to shore up your sense of security—be it financial or spiritual—should be contemplated during Mercury’s retrograde cycle through an earth sign.
Becoming aware of the connection between the deeper value of the Spirited Woman’s resources--in both their physical form of material goods and money, and in the more spiritual and esoteric guise of soul growth—is strongly recommended.
