WHAT THE MECURY RETROGRADE TAUGHT ME
Any Mercury Retrograde cycle is THE time to re-think, re-do, re-define, re-organize, re-assess, re-orient, and/or re-plan without taking dramatic action on the “new plan” until after Mercury Retrograde ends.
It's literally feels so good finally coming out of a "depression"/ deep sadness. When shit hits the fence I typically fill up my planner with activities and people to keep myself busy until I'm no longer sad. In reality though, what is happening is, my sad thoughts and/or situation is only pushed to my subconscious to a point where I genuinely convince myself that I'm good. However, if the memory resurfaces or is triggered by anything similar, I'd blow up and realize no, this shit still makes me upset, and I still am effected. This month I decided to dwell in my sadness versus the usual "do everything it takes to not be sad" method. Decided to tell myself Annie, you're sad. And it's okay. Take this time to be sad and understand how you feel and how to take steps to figuring everything out.
And I'm glad I did. I got through it. All 3 weeks.
Just... Wait. It can't hurt to wait it out.
The happiness I feel now feels so much more deep rooted and freeing. Very excited to see what September holds.
