They say that during Mercury Retrograde it’s not a good time to make any new BIG decisions or purchases of any kind.
It’s not a good time to start new relationships.
It’s not a good time to make any big plans for the future.
It’s not a good idea to spend BIG amounts of money.
It’s not a good idea to travel, communicate big issues with loved ones, date new people… BASICALLY it’s a time that we are suppose to say “HOLD UP”
And stop our lives … right ?
Well this is a BIG reason why many people fear this time.
Why everyone freaks out and wonders what will happen.
I have been one of those people 🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️🙋🏽♀️
BUT NOT THIS TIME!
Now there’s a good chance that could be because of the way it was hitting me personally in my birth chart, and maybe because of what I needed to RE look at. BUT… I DID EVERYTHING YOU ARE NOT SUPPOSE TO DO during a Mercury Retrograde… and I lived to tell the tale.
So naturally- it has become a blog post to share with all of you.
I SIGNED A LEASE to my own place!
Yup! Did probably the number 1 thing that everyone advises you not to do during this time. That being said…. I’m about to move into my place in 2 days. I Have no furniture, no idea how I’m financially going to pull this off on my own BUT it happened effortlessly. It was total flow. I was picked for this place for a reason. It feels right.
My intuition lead me here. My soul agrees it’s right. My mind doesn’t know the how and that’s scary AF. But this is what’s in front of me. This is what is next in my journey.
I MET SOMEONE NEW
Although I want to spill all the details… I’m not going to. BECAUSE it’s not the time and some things are better left a mystery ya know 💁🏽♀️ That being said…. they say that during mercury retrograde exes tend to return or “old loves”. This did NOT happen to me- although I thought it would. It didn’t. But I did meet someone who caught me by surprise. Mercury rules conversations and how we talk with one another. This time around for me so far has brought me deeper spiritual conversations and connections. Only time will tell what this means being it was during a Mercury Rx and all! 🤷🏽♀️
I SPENT A LOT OF MONEY on damage deposits, car/ driving etc. Aka BIG PURCHASES
Again… what not to do during Mercury Rx. Spend a ton of money that you don’t have. Here’s the thing… LIFE HAPPENS!
And sometimes ya gotta seize the moments that come up and live your life. If that means you need to spend some money because it’s setting you up for a massive change in your life and it feels right THEN DO IT! I wasn’t blowing money on clothes, shoes, extra things ( although I did buy a cute new bathing suite) I used that money to help build my new foundation that I’m determined to grow on. SO its okay!
I TRAVELED to new places
Said yes to new adventures that came up and that gave me more life. They literally came to me. I felt so joyful after and calm. I also felt filled up again after going to these little adventures.
Maybe Mercury was like “GURL, do yourself the favour and go calm your nervous system in these lavish places with people you love.”… I’ll take it !
LEFT A JOB
This one was a bit hard.
Why? Well because I didn’t have my normal income coming in.
I didn’t have security knowing that I’ll be okay financially. BUT my mental health was literally suffering. My body was freaking out (and I was terrified of getting shingles again). My soul was telling me it was time to rest. To take care of me. It may have appeared selfish. But I had to do this for me. I had to say no to things that’s literally didn’t light me up anymore. I needed to take care of me so I could pour that out into the rest of the world.. eventually.
BUT GUESS WHAT…
I’m still here. I’m still here to tell the tale that even though I did all of these things I’m okay… so far.
Today Mercury goes direct. We have a new moon – second one of the month, and we’re straight outta eclipse season.
So here I am navigating just like you all.
If you believe in this or not it’s up to you.
But the lesson here is that YES even though I believe in this… I still believe that I need to follow the flow of what’s in front of me and live my life.
So everyone who thinks people who stop their lives because of this… I’m not going to say you’re wrong BUTTTT maybe take a bit more of a look into their lives first 😉
Full speed ahead everyone.
Trust that what came up is for the taking. Mercury leaves us with big lessons and even bigger breakthroughs. So take what you’ve learned and use it!
That’s what Mercury Retrograde is truly all about.
GOODBYE MERCURY RX 👋🏼👋🏼👋🏼
….Until we meet again.
