planet mercury nasa

Deep Intense Inner Work

I don't know about you guys but I have had SUCH a hard time with Mars and Mercury being retrograde this last month. Mars was in a very extended retrograde and at the same time mercury went into retrograde. Luckily they are now coming out and we should see things start to move forward. 

Mars is our motivation and drive. It is what we do and how we do it and normally I do notice a lag in my energy when it goes retrograde but the one we have just been through seemed to be even harder than normal. I had zero motivation. I would think of doing something and right away think "naaaaahhh I think Ill just sit here" Very against my nature! Normally I am the get things done kind of girl and I am always getting something done, even when Mars is retrograde but this one was very different. I pretty much didn't want to move!

Mercury is the planet of communication goes retrograde 3-4 times a year and it usually isn't a really big deal, just mildly annoying but this one, with mars also retrograde, my thoughts were non existent most of the time, I would start to say something and completely forget what I was talking about or the point I wanted to make. At times I couldn't pronounce words or I would put a word that did fit into the sentence. Computer problems have been plenty and worst of all I broke my camera and after wait, what seems like forever, I still don't have the repair done! 

The good news is that Mars turned direct this last week and Mercury is turning direct today. After the shadow phase which is about 3 days we will be moving forward and the stuck, heavy, frustrating feeling will be going away and as each day passes we will feel lighter and lighter. We will probably have a "healing" of whatever the theme has been for each of us during these retrogrades. 

 

To explain that a bit further there are 3 points to a retrograde. Planet is traveling forward, hits a point and an issue shows up in our life needing to be dealt with. The planet turns retrograde at some point and comes back over that point again but this time there is a bit of working through or a healing, it passes the point and at some point it goes direct again and when it passes that point for the last time, this is when the resolution or complete healing happens. This is where we are now. 

If there has been an issue happening in our life for a couple months, just know that it is about to become a solved issue or a healing very soon and you will be able to move forward without the baggage of the past. 

On January 20th the sun enters Aquarius and on Jan 21st there is a new moon in Aquarius and the following day, Jan 22nd Uranus (ruler of Aquarius) turns direct. This to me feels like the beginning of the Age of Aquarius!

More on this later, just know the heaviness is passing and we are entering a new phase. It will be a wild ride for sure as this is a LOT of Aquarius energy and a lot of direct motion from the planets. Things could get crazy!

My advice: Eat clean, meditate, get some exercise (yoga would be great) take naps when you feel tired and have a cup of green tea a day and dont over complicate anything and try not to emotionally react to anything!
