Did you know that you can thrive during mercury retrogrades like we have starting today? In this article I'll outline how, and why it's important to use these three weeks to anchor your dreams and heart-felt projects.
Mercury stations retrograde in the final degree of Sagittarius, reminding us that sometimes it really is worth looking back before you leap. The importance of caution is further stressed by a conjunction to Saturn, as is the role of unbridled commitment to wisdom reflected in Black Moon Lilith’s presence alongside.

Mercury is retrograde between 9th April and 3rd May 2017 (GMT). Beginning in grounded and consistent Taurus and retreating into impulsive and instinctual Aries on 20th April, it highlights where we set anchor and strive to remain when in fact we should move on through.
During Mercury Retrogrades, you often can't move forward with something no matter how much you want to particularly when it comes to signing contracts, agreements or anything involving important communications.
We've had two eclipses plus Pluto stationing and Mercury retrograde which explains some of it, but not all of it. Beyond astrology, there is the energetic fact that personally, and collectively we are continuing to go through a major evolutionary shift.
This solar eclipse highlights the adventure of living in the material world whilst embracing the unseen realms of energy and essence. This is the path of the everyday mystic who lives in communion with the divine whilst scrubbing the floor and fingernails, paying bills, earning a wage and putting out the rubbish
Major change across the planet continues to accelerate this next month, catalyzing new levels of spiritual awakening and a greater transparency of previously hidden information. The New Moon Solar Eclipse of September 1 sets the stage for some significant cycles.
Just as Mercury is about to enter the conciliatory world of Libra it’s brought up short by its retrograde station in the final degree of Virgo, reminding us there are still details we need to be clear on, facts requiring review and focused effort necessary before we can move ahead with current plans.
Heads up - Mercury Retrograde officially starts today. This can send phones, computers, electronics etc haywire so if you've been getting the nudge to back up files and photo's, you might want to get onto that now.
