As I mentioned last week, we are in the pre-shadow period of the upcoming Mercury retrograde that begins on October 4th, and when Mercury, the trickster, is having fun causing glitches and delays, he is really doing it for a reason. Personally, it is usually during these pre-shadow periods that I experience the tricks of silly Merc, and the actual retrograde period is when I return, re-do, and resume any disruptions.
All retrogrades create slow-downs and disruptions for a reason. All you can do is see what is really being presented or opened up for you and go with the flow! For me, during my week+ of no internet, I saw that I was presented with the opportunity to do some book reading and studying that I had not done in a while. It also gave me more time for more in-depth self-study and meditation that has actually been very helpful and insightful for one of my upcoming books. And it has helped me to bring computer time into more balance. Never before the last year and a half had I been on the computer so much. A majority of that time I couldn’t do much else because I was watching/caring for my mother. Now, however, I have the opportunity to balance out my computer time with other activities.
By releasing, not resisting, and going with the flow, all has gone quite smoothly and harmoniously! This upcoming week’s Weekly Oracle Card Reading fits in with this so well! Check it out below, or subscribe to my YouTube channel here.
