The New Year is about letting go of the old, bringing in the new. Often times this requires making room for the new. This can be new ideas, new people in our lives, new things in our home, or new activities. We can use this time to really stop and think about what has served us well in the past and what has not. Be willing to let go of that which has not served you well.
There is a metaphysical natural law of the universe that nature abhors a void. Whenever something is removed from your life, something else will always take its place. There are no voids in life. For example, if you remove your hand from a bucket of water, there is no hole left in the water. There is no void in the space.
You may want to stop and use this retrograde cycle to think about what you want to let go of and what you want to attract into your life to take its place. Have you ever noticed that when you clean out a closet or drawer and throw things away, it doesn’t take long for other items to take its place?
Mercury will be retrograde until January 25th. In addition to cleaning out the cluttered areas of your life, this is a great time to re-read, re-write, re- evaluate, re-think and re-define your goals for the coming year. This is not a particularly favorable time to initiate something new. It is a much better time for completion and making plans.
Traveling is another area that is affected by the Mercury Rx cycle. If you are taking a trip it is better if it is a return visit to perhaps one of your favorite places. Make sure that you check and double check your reservations. Pack your essentials in your carry-on bag, as flights or luggage may be delayed.
People who were born with Mercury Rx usually find this cycle to be very comfortable and productive while the rest of us use this time to regroup and make adjustments.
There is another thought about the “laws of nature” that I would like to share with you during this Mercury retrograde cycle:
“Remember that your dominating thoughts attract,
through a definite law of nature, by the shortest and most
convenient route, their physical counterpart. Be careful what
your thoughts dwell upon.”

This is a great time to think about scheduling your annual update to help you plan and prepare for the coming year and/or deal with any stressful cycles in your life that you may be coping with. I would love to hear from you!
