HELL AND BACK…
By Laurie Naughtin www.sublunar.co.za
Hell on earth hath no fury when Mercury is retrograde, especially when this occurs together with the Eclipses in the same sign of Leo.
This explains why so many of us are experiencing so many extreme challenges, shifts, illness, accidents; when Mercury is retrograde is bad enough but when it retrogrades with the eclipses in the same sign we can expect this retrograde period to be absolutely awful, bad Mercury on steroids….shudder!!!!
When Mercury retrogrades in the other signs we will face many types of communication wobbles and upsets, but this Mercury has created situations of shock and turmoil.
But in Leo with an added dose of eclipse we have no option other than to give up our need to control as the universe is driving the forces of nature and our lives. We have no option other than to obey the universal message rather than control it.
As of today Mercury slows and moves into his station, the pause button is on, things slow down. Life become quiet and vulnerability can set in, many of us are feeling shocked, sad, broken and lost.
During this station period we can reflect on the ills that have changed our life path, lick our wounded egos or heal our damaged bodies and souls. This will get us ready to fix what has broken, mourn what has been lost, change our attitude and turn life into a new and creative adventure.
Many of us dodged the bullets, but have observed the pain of others, some of us may carry the shadow of offensive behaviour from others…be still and find a way to heal and take the time to help heal others. Forgive but never forget, walk forward and away from the destruction that has been left.
Move forward carrying with you lessons learnt from this period, every life event is a lesson we can use in the future, be the event good or bad, remember when events are devastating we can take life lessons from them which in the long run give us strength.
Try not let this past energy drain you to the point of no return…there are always options for those with the courage to pick up the pieces of life that are positive and strong, and leave the pieces that may never mend behind.
What’s more, while other signs will have myriad communication kerfuffles, you’ll be exempt from this particular Mercury retrograde turmoil. Additionally, if you have unfinished projects that you’ve just been too busy to deal with, Mercury retrograde is going to effectively pause the madness so you can get that stuff off of your plate. Take advantage of this because you might not get another window of free time for the rest of the year.
