When Mercury is retrograde but you're magical - Yasmin Boland

I loved this meme because that’s exactly how I feel.

Yes, Mercury’s retrograde but remember this; you are creating your own reality.

So even though there is this energy around, remember that you are able to use it!

That means no diving under the duvet and wishing it all away!

Rather see this cycle as a chance to redo, rethink, revise and revisit anything and everything in your life that needs it.

Remember that Mercury retrograde brings second chances.

I co-authored a whole book about this. See http://www.mercuryretrogradebook.com for info. In fact, the info is from the book.

What you need to know about this retrograde…

The Upside of Mercury Retrograde in Libra

The plus side of Mercury retrograde is definitely that old loves can come back into your life, if that’s what you’re pining for. This can be for reconciliation… or for closure.

By the same token, if you really want to revive an old love affair, don’t wait for a chance meeting. If Mercury is retrograde in Libra, the skies totally support you in getting back in touch. That said, there are no guarantees!

Libra is the sign most associated with fairness and justice. When Mercury is retrograde here, you may get a chance to right wrongs or perhaps get things done equitably to start with.

Also, old grievances and general relationship issues can come to the surface at this time, too. This can be positive, however, as it allows you to address problems you’ve been refusing to acknowledge and sort them out.

It’s very likely going to be easier and more productive to have that difficult discussion, rather than avoid it. In fact, the discussion might not be necessary if you listen to what your loved one has to say. By resolving differences and mending ties, you can strengthen your relationships.


Five things to do when Mercury is retrograde in Libra

◗◗ Address old problems with your loved ones/be extra patient!
◗◗ Look up your ex or a friend or relative you fell out with and make peace.
◗◗ Forgive yourself for your past mistakes, especially those related to love or money.
◗◗ Renegotiate the terms of a personal or professional partnership.
◗◗ Nip relationship problems in the bud.

Watch out for…

* A general sense that the world is out of balance leads to misunderstandings and communication going wrong – especially in close relationships. It might be a misinterpretation of a few words or a disagreement about a larger issue, but somehow you don’t see eye to eye. A little patience can make all the difference.

* Don’t become heavily invested in decision‑making. If you feel your input isn’t being heard or valued, remember
that the scales will likely dip in your favour before all the weighing is done.

* Trying to keep the peace can push you into going along with whoever is around you – whether you think they
are right or not – which can lead others to mistrust your judgement.

* Try to see things from their perspective and you’ll find it much easier to make the right decisions.

* People are likely to dither more than usual, including you, but perhaps some decisions don’t need to be made
immediately. If a relationship needs an overhaul, this is a great time for it. Tempting though it may be to go it
alone, you’ll feel much more fulfilled if you join forces with another.
