It’s that time of the year again that we all love and look forward to. Spring is in the air, or for those of us who live in Florida, summer is already upon us and the days are getting longer every day.
The sun rises long before I wake up and there’s still plenty of time for those evening walks on the beach before it sets. We can continue to enjoy the extended sunshine hours through June 21st, which is the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year. So lets take advantage of these long sunny days and beautiful weather.
This is also that time of year when Mercury is retrograde again. It is when we have permission to STOP, regroup, rethink, reorganize and re-evaluate. Take a break. Take a breather. Use this time to FINISH that which you have already started.
Since Mercury is the messenger of the zodiac and is currently retrograde in Gemini, its ruling sign, it will have a more obvious effect on our communications and thought process. The minor irritations that arise most frequently during this particular Mercury Rx cycle are missed appointments, lost documents, faulty communication devices, broken promises and well-intended but misleading information. This is a great time to go back and reread or recheck your documents.
Best to avoid initiating anything new until after the June 16th new moon. Although Mercury will station direct the evening of June 11th, the moon will still be in its waning phase, which is not a great time to start something new.
This is not a favorable time to purchase a new car, computer, television, phone, answering machine or anything that is connected with communications or transportation. If you are planning a trip during this time, be sure check and double check all of your reservations. Be sure to take a carry on with your necessities, as luggage does tend to get lost during this time.
You may want to avoid signing contractual agreements during this period. This cycle is best used for clearing the clutter from your life. I usually clean the closet in my office, but this time I am only tackling a storage dresser. God only knows what I will find in there. It has been a while. Should be fun.
What clutter are you going to clean out of your life during this Rx cycle?
