If you’re like me, there’s still PLENTY to do in your business pre Xmas but you’re really looking forward to taking a break. The good news is Mercury Retrograde have us covered!! Here’s why.....
MERCURY IS TURNING RETROGRADE IN DECEMBER 2017
The planet Mercury is the fastest moving planet in the solar system and rules communication, computers, travel, learning, the written word and cars. 3-4 times a year, it retrogrades and appears to move backwards in the sky. When this happens, it can cause miscommunication, technical issues and delays to travel. All of which can cause major frustration as you’re forced to stop, wait, review and fix or replace things!!
Since I started educating clients, friends and family about mercury retrograde 10 years ago, people have shared many examples of their MR stories with me such as phones drowning in pools or toilets, computers showing up the blue-screen of death and huge travel delays at airports and in traffic.
However, whilst Mercury retrograde has the potential to create unpredictability in certain areas of life, it brings a fantastic opportunity to review our current course of action at work and home, prioritise what’s important (and what's not) and make plans.
Mercury Retrograde starts 3 December, 2017 at 6.26pm (AEST) and ends when it turns direct on 23 December, 2017 at 12.50pm (AEST). The riskiest times for decision making, negotiations, communication and transport are the few days either side of the exact retrograde and direct stations. For this period they are Dec 1-6 and Dec 20 – 26.
USE THE ENERGY TO REVIEW YOUR BUSINESS, CAREER AND PERSONAL LIFE
To help you make the most of this energy in your business, career and personal life, below is a list of what TO DO and what to AVOID.
SATURN WILL BRING CRITICAL THINKING INTO VIEW
During this retrograde period, Mercury is conjunct (next to) Saturn in the sky. As a result the hard-working, restrictive and goal oriented nature of Saturn will have an influence on the energy. It will bring an opportunity to apply critical thinking to challenging mental work. However, be mindful to look for productive outlets for your intellect. Sometimes when Saturn is involved, the mind can dwell on the negatives and harsh words can come up causing problems in relationships.
But please don’t be alarmed, the level of impact and the opportunity that December’s Mercury Retrograde is likely to have on your life and/or business and is determined by where it falls in your birth chart. And of course it will also be about how much you try and work against it!!
