ASTROLOGY OF THE COSMOS: Mercury, Venus Retrogrades & Full Moon
Oh boy, we have a lot going on this April and May in 2017!! You may find yourself increasingly tired and flustered by these intense energies over the coming days and weeks to come.
In a nutshell, it is a time to letting go, and of self-reflection. There is definitely nothing to fear – especially in terms of Mercury Retrograde. Many people interpret Mercury Retrograde in terms of communication issues, technical breakdowns or faults, there’s a good reason for this.
When we reach Sunday, April 9th, The Universe is advising us to slow down and relax. We are fully supported in our endeavours as we continue on our soul’s journey and life purpose. This tiny planet, Mercury in our Universe will be moving back into Taurus back into fiery Aries. This will take place on May 20th for Mercury to return back to its original spot in Taurus to resume its fullest potential.
Mercury is a messenger of the Gods, of the Divine, of the Light, and of Divine Wisdom. When Mercury goes retrograde this simply means we need to listen to our own Divine wisdom, to pay attention to signs and symbols, and to seek further knowledge of our own spiritual path. Everyone has their own truly unique journey, because everyone is different, yet we all have a special part to play in the world.
