I thought it would be fun to ask the Tarot for advice on managing through Mercury Retrograde.
To keep things simple, I pulled just 1-3 cards, allowing my intuition and clairvoyance to fill in the gaps of information. In response to my inquiry, I pulled the Emperor card.
The Emperor's message focuses on regrouping, recovering, and refocusing.
Initially, regroup: take the ideas you have been contemplating during Mercury Retrograde and give them some structure. The time is finally upon us to create some action.
Next, recover: meditate and ground yourself. Do something simple that you think is fun. Refresh by experiencing joy in the present moment.
Finally, refocus: what have you learned during this time of inactivity? How does this insight combine with the trajectory you are wanting to create? This practice will help you formulate decisions based on new information helping you regain control of your life and surroundings.
Mercury Retrograde can move through our lives like a grizzly bear woken up from his afternoon nap.
However, when we become aware of the attributes of the transition and give ourselves space and act through kindness, we are practicing mindfulness and moving in balance.
This is empowerment.
Give yourself a pat on the back, you beast of awareness!
