Mercury retrograde is not a cosmic event that we should fear, it is a great opportunity to expand our consciousness and be in contact with the inner compass that we guide the next steps of our journey and even more by having it retrograde in an Air sign as it is Libra. Self observation is essential during this period as we cannot serve two different vibrations, we cannot say that we are ascending Souls, and at the same time serve the vibration of fear when Mercury is retrograde, oscillating between two different worlds/frequencies. When we become authentic and responsible beings, we know that we are the only ones who can control our lives and that no outer event can really cause any harm in our unique life experiences but our own selves through the illusion we choose to experience, and this is what ascending Souls do, release old patterns of thoughts and fears by stepping into the powerful creators and Divine Beings that we all are.
During the time that Mercury will be retrograde in Libra, we are being asked to evaluate all aspects of our lives, remember that in the house that Mercury resides in your chart will be specially important for you at this time to focus your intention, although in any case, Mercury will invite all of us to examine how we treat ourselves and if we truly honor and respect who we are, as it is only according to the love that we feel for our own being that we can really love and treat others with true kindness and integrity.
Mercury suggests us that it is a wonderful time to ask ourselves: Are we maintaing balanced realtionships based on unconditional love and authenticity? Or are we still repeating old patterns that lead us to attachments and dependency? Are we communicating from a place of total integrity and freedom? Or are we in need of obtaining validation from others? It is essential that before judging ourselves or the situation that we are dealing with, we take the time to visualize and observe our own behavior in our relationships, as it is always about ourselves, never about others. If you realize that some of these old patterns are coming back into your life and if you are totally honest with yourself, you will clearly see that everything that arise comes from what we expect from others.
This used to be a constant in the old, and some of you may be still holding back this pattern, all is well as it Is, remember that old feelings come back for you to acknowlegde and embrace them so you can realize what you still have to unify, not to punish yourself for feeling them. So when you recognize these emerging feelings from your past, be grateful, as it is your inner being letting your know that the moment of letting them go has come as they are not serving your highest purpose anymore.
When we expect from our partners, families and friends to fulfill our needs or even to fill the voids we feel within, we are not only becoming dependant beings but making them responsible for our own happiness. The Truth is that we are always whole, independent and powerful beings capable of creating our own abundance and other resources in the physical, we do not need anyone to respond in a certain way for us to be happy or not.
Unconditional love is all about being and sharing the love that we are with our partners and life companions without expecting anything from them. Sometimes it is only when we experience this lack of self love or other similar feelings that we finally awake to the truth that no one else or outer thing can truly make us feel whole and in our natural satte of bliss but our own selves. We have the opporutnity with Mercury in Libra to observe this pattern in the relationships we maintain with others as well as to start cultivating within all we expect from them. We are a spark of the Divine and within it all we can possibly imagine resides, we no longer need from others what we alaready have within, we no longer experience codependency becuaswe we now feel all within Creation is inside our own selves as we are One with it all.
When Mercury is retrograde, we can actually experience some of the old situations and/or relationships back and that we thought concluded, but this is always an opportunity for us to truly assess the emotions and thoughts that are still hidden within our core and that should be released and healed in order to embrace the next phase of our journey by being renewed and purified of the past. Libra will assist us to balance those feelings of hesitation and sadness, as always by embracing it instead of denying our human emotions, and by focusing on what is real and authentic, so we can manifest the realtionships that are aligned with our souls instead of the ones that foment separation.
Remember that separation does not exist as we are all One to begin with and that no matter what occurs in our reunions with others, we are constantly letting them go as we are shifting at every moment and what resonates with us at this time may not in the next moment and in order to experience the proper evolution that our souls are ready to embrace in this new cycle, getting attached to the same relationships is not what will give us a major and better growth.
As conscious Souls, we know that at the moment it is not time to act without the proper discerment, as Mercury retrograde is sending us the cosmic message that it is a better time to slow down and balance some important aspects of our lives before continuing with our unique path by being totally focused and secure of what we desire to create next, knowing that our desires always come from a place of integrity and total alignment with our soul, not from egoic impulses. It does not mean that we should just stop acting, remember thay we never stop doing so as we are always giving birth to something new from an energetic Plane, but simply remain in an inner place of awareness, holding a clearer vision of what is really happening within so we can start opening the inner portals required to dissolve what is in the past and start building new pathways that will guide us to our "future" creations that are One with our Highest Will.
When we give up to all inner fights, surrender to the Divine and take the time to see if our lives are going into the direction of what our souls desire to achieve, we are moving forward, even if we think we are “doing nothing”, because by doing what is best for us in every single moment, is enough, as we are being responsible of our own selves and know that it is not time to push things or situations simply because it is not the right moment to do so. When we finally leave our old perspective of how things are or should be behind, is when everything in our reality begins to manifest in its natural form, just as they are meant to happen and not as we want them to be and this is what we could master at this time - the art of creating the perfect balance within so it can be also reflected into our tangible reality and relationships.
As we flow without resistant to change, we liberate ourselves from fears, old attachments and from everything that is not who we truly are and it is then that we start living peaceful lives, creating the outcomes that are going to assist the self and All in this endless journey. But in the moment we want things now, even if the whole universe is telling us that it is not the right moment to manifest our desires, in the moment that we force and go against our natural stream of joy, things simply do not work out for us, because we are not dancing at the rhythm of the universe but trying to manipulate it in our favor, and it can never work out, becuase we are again acting from en egoic place by thinking that we know best and that we can control the conditions, and only the Forces of Light of the Universe can know what is best for All beings within Creation.
I wish you all a wonderful Mercury retrograde filled with balance, joy and Divine reunions that truly serve your highest purpose and with the awareness enough to conquer the inner shadows that impede you to see all the gifts beyond human illusions.
In love and light,
