Disruptions in travel throughout Mexico, social and government disruptions in the middle east with potential impacts on gas prices, various issues with the Internet and telecommunications, a botched terrorist event, which caused massive interruptions of personal plans-all of these “mega-events” involve some kind of communication issue. And, as many of us who follow the stars and planets know, are all part and parcel of the effects of one of the most challenging Mercury Retrograde periods in recent memory.
Mercury Retrogrades impact communications of all types. Obviously, travelling from point A to point B is a type of physical communication; planning to attend an event involves other types of communications-reservations, tickets, etc. Problems with the Internet and phone services are another example. It goes without saying that this Retrograde cycle has been one of the most disruptive in the last few years. With nearly three weeks left in this cycle, (Mercury goes direct on August 26th) you are probably wondering, and with good reason “What Next??” and how do I survive it.
First and foremost, accept the fact that there are going to be interruptions, misunderstandings, botched messages, etc. on all levels. Calls won’t get returned, emails go unanswered, interpersonal communications become confused, argumentative, or worse. Communication devices fail at improbable moments; travel plans hit snafus, and so on. Allowing yourself to be “hooked” into making impulsive or rash decisions or responses to these events will only succeed to add to your frustration and, in fact, can make bad situations even worse.
Knowing that the events you are dealing with are symptomatic of the Retrograde cycle, try to take a breath (or two, or three) and avoid making knee-jerk responses. As hard as it may seem, actions (or reactions) during this time should be made with deliberation and not trying to force the issue. Sometimes, the best response to a Mercury Retrograde crisis is to take that step back and view the situation from as dispassionate a view as you can. In doing this, you might actually see elements that you had overlooked and can appreciate the full ramifications of course of action. In this sense, the communication disruption can also be a positive event.
Second, take stock of your upcoming short term plans and truly ask yourself if anything can be rescheduled or pushed back. If so, I would recommend trying to do this; although, the rescheduling in and of itself may also be impacted by the effects of Mercury. If there are items or activities which you were planning to schedule during the Retrograde time, holding off on those events will reduce the stress level and ultimately may lead you to reassess your plans and, again, perhaps discovering things that you had overlooked or hadn’t considered before.
Third, looking to the future, learn when the next Retrograde cycle is supposed to occur and see if there are plans or activities that may be impacted. Forewarned is forearmed and in the case of Mercury Retrogrades, no truer phrase could be uttered. Admittedly, this will not remedy all of the potential chaos that a Retrograde can bring with it (especially of the “mega-event” variety), but on a personal level, if you can reduce the areas where you might be affected, it will make the time far less stressful and, ultimately, will take less energy to endure.
Remember the full effects of a Mercury Retrograde can often take up to two weeks to dissipate after Mercury goes direct. The effects of this astrological event will vary from person to person. Seeking competent advice from trained astrologers, psychics and tarot readers can help you through these trying times.
