Lately I have been facing the after Christmas and holiday blues. I have not been sleeping well and during the day I have been feeling"off". I dismissed this as lack of activity but when I looked online I saw that mercury was in retrograde. Now what is mercury retrograde, and why would this affect us, you may ask. Mercury is the closest planet to the sun so it has a shorter orbit . It makes a rotation every so often but when it passes earth every three or four times a year, Mercury appears to be moving backwards! Now Mercury is not actually moving backwards, but the upsetting part about this phenomenon is the affect it supposedly has on us. I read that the planet Mercury rules communication, clear thinking, truth, and travel. When the planet moves backwards, all of those aspects of life seem to go awry. People claim that when the planet starts to go in retrograde they can start to feel off, get in more arguments, forget sentences and thoughts, experience technical difficulties, and a whole bunch of other crazy things. I read that re assessing your life, putting big projects on hold, and going with the flow will help you get through the retrograde. I cannot say I am a firm believer that this causes technical difficulties but I do believe that the planets orbits can affect us in different ways and Mercury could be causing some of my problems. Just remember to go with the flow everyone! Have a great new year and expect more regular blog posts!
