Mercury Retrograde Starts Tomorrow!
Here are some tips and a special offering to help you get through it.
It happens three times a year, and our next Mercury Retrograde is happening tomorrow until October 1.
Chances are you’ve already been feeling the effects of this during the shadow phase.
Contrary to popular belief, when a planet is in retrograde, it isn’t actually moving backwards like some may have been told. In astronomy, it’s an illusion that the planet is moving backwards.
In astrology, we use this time to go within and to reflect, to think back on our choices, decisions and behaviors, to see what may need to change in order to move forward in alignment. This is also a notorious time for exes to come back in the picture. Proceed with caution.
And, of course, being that Mercury is the planet of the intellect, memories, travel, news and communication, all of these things become affected as well. You may experience frequent delays, plot twists, miscommunications, misunderstandings and irritable circumstances.
That’s why I wanted to offer some distant Reiki for those who would be interested in additional energy work to help ground during this time.
This is remote energy work (meaning you don’t have to be present or physically do anything to receive it).
The intention is to focus on grounding, stability, communication and clarity. If you’re unfamiliar with Reiki work, you can learn more here.
The energy exchange for this service is $4. Yup, only $4. I specifically chose the number 4 because the energy of four is all about stability, productivity, foundation and feeling rooted.
If you’re interested in receiving this offering, today’s your last chance to sign up. I’ll be closing the offering at 5 pm PST, so hit the button below.
