Oh No…Retrograde?!

Published December 19, 2016 by Tarot By Elizabeth



Today Mercury turns retrograde until January 8th, I can almost hear the gasps! 

But, never fear, there’s no reason to think the sky is falling and communication as we know it is out the proverbial window, here are some tips to make the next three weeks bearable:


1. Back up your data and any electronics.  This “ruler of communication” planet can get a little funny with your devices. In today’s world, it is hard to not communicate via texting, Facebook post, email, or even an archaic phone call. That being said, be careful and mindful of your devices. Could you really go three weeks, let alone a day, without your phone?

2. Don’t buy any big ticket items or sign any contracts.   During this time it’s almost necessary to check, re-check and double check any agreements or large purchases that could possibley come back to haunt you in the new year! As my grandmother said “Measure twice, cut once!”


3. Communication AggravationMercury is the planet of messages and communication, and when in retrograde, folks can seem confusing, ornery and downright cranky!

 Even I can fall victim to these sneaky snaffu’s being an Air sign, but no need to fear, just take a little more time understanding each other during this time and cut yourself and all you come into contact with, a little slack…after all, wouldn’t you like to same consideration yourself?

4. Revamp not Initiate.  Think of the retrograde as a periodic review, a chance to pause and finish what you’ve started. Where are the areas in you daily life that could use a little TLC? 

Make this a period of solidifying your foundations rather than establishing new ones! 
Perhaps this can be a great opportunity to reconnect with your roots or core beliefs, go for a stroll down memory lane and really focus on your blessings.

Most of all, RELAX! Try not to get yourself cornered into an anxiety nightmare where you develop negative tunnel vision. Use this time wisely and before you know it, it will be a hazy memory!
