Careful what you think about when Mercury is Rx. Have you ever thought about a project and just kept putting off doing it? Well this story may make you want to rethink what you think about.
I have a walk in closet in my office with built in shelves which has turned out to be the collect all and save all area of my life. Does anyone else have one of those areas? It is filled to the brim with everything from stationary that I may or may not need some day to picture frames and Christmas paper. I have had it on my mind for quite some time to reorganize and get rid of the excess non- essentials in that area of my life.
When Mercury was getting ready to go retrograde in March of 2012 I had in mind that I would take advantage of that time period to tackle that project. Well low and behold, if we didn’t discover that there was a water leak from the unit above us on the morning of March 10th , only two days before Mercury went retrograde.
Not only did my catch all walk in closet have to be totally cleaned out, but my entire office had to be dismantled, book cases and all. I certainly had to chuckle to myself as I was rethinking how I had been thinking about cleaning out that closet for some time.
I know that Mercury retrograde is the perfect time to clean out clutter in your life, but did I have to do it so abruptly and all at one time? I could have kept thinking about that project for years to come.
So you may want to be careful about what you think about, especially when Mercury is going retrograde.
And now a few days before Mercury is going retrograde we are having new double pain windows installed in our condo. This will require moving a book shelf in my office which I have been wanting to reorganize. Although this is not a project that I would willing undertake, I’m feeling that this is a good use of Mercury Rx.
Remember that Mercury’s retrograde periods can cause our plans to go awry. However, this is an excellent time to reflect on the past. Intuition is high during these periods, and coincidences can be extraordinary.
