“Feeling the Effects of this Retrograde”

The Mercury Retrograde officially begins the day after tomorrow, but many of us sensitive to the energies of the Earth and the Cosmos are already feeling the pull.    The pull of memories, of past hurts, of past friends or relationships that creep back upon us during these Retrogrades.

My sleep patterns shift…….usually interrupted by dreams or memories in the night that suddenly emerge from long ago.

I cleaned a drawer out today and found my old telephone/address book from decades ago.   All but a couple of relatives have now crossed into spirit.    The addresses belong to someone new; the phone numbers long ago disconnected.    I tucked it back in the drawer; I should throw it out, but just cannot.   It would be like erasing all those names, all those homes I visited as a child.   I remember my Aunts calling me, now most of my Aunts and Uncles are gone.   Retrogrades bring wistful memories to our hearts and minds.   It is easy to be influenced by past relationships and think about rekindling old flames.   Just remember the reasons you left those relationships in the past, think very clearly during this Retrograde before you take one step forward and two steps back.

Retrogrades are nothing to dread, in fact, they can bring a lot of clarity to the wounds and hurts of the past and give us opportunity to let them go and face the reality of why they went wrong.

If you haven’t been in touch with that elderly Aunt or old friend in a long while…..use the Retrograde to make that call again……….one day, the person waiting on the other end of the line will have a new name,  the person at the opposite side of the door will bear a new face……….

Go home again while you still can……….

Blessings,

Shirl
