Mercury Retrograde

June 17th 2020 - July 11th 2020

Most people assume that the world works in a logical , linear , and somewhat predictable way-but that's not always the case. Expecting that on any given day, everything will go as planned actually helps perpetuate this illusion. During this time frame, these assumptions severely compromised. The "regular,"logical flows of events will appear to be disrupted. This may be a familiar feeling based on global events and circumstances, but right now you may notice even more examples of it. As a result, the world won't operate in the way you expect. Instead, what seemed objective becomes subjective; left-brain becomes right-brain; and connections will be missed - both with people and, interestingly, with technology and machines. Schedules, rules,routines, plans, messages, or emails - anything requiring rational functioning or communication - might not work as they usually do.

These energies may or may not affect everyone the same way - they probably won't feel as strong as any personal cycles that you're having. But if you know what's happening, you can set intentions or take advantage of these energies - and not feel overwhelmed if things feel out of control. This might be easier for you if you already operate outside of the mainstream - like if you work a nontraditional or creative job. However, if you may feel especially challenged right now. These disruptions and confusions can be annoying, but if you're able to overlook them, this time frame can offer special possibilities. See this moment as an opportunity to move past linear thinking and let your mind go beyond conventional wisdom and expectations. This can be a great few weeks for inner work, meditation, and reflection. Often, artistic endeavors or anything that uses your right brain or intuition can really thrive. Even duties that require reason can succeed, with a little patience - and the realization that other people are probably a little unclear and inconsistent as well. But without taking these hiccups into account, you could easily experience confusion, frustration, and exasperation during this time.

The purpose of this cycle is to alter assumptions that life will always proceed logically. Along with the rest of humanity, you're being given an experience where your perception, cognition, and communication are being altered. It's also a good opportunity to let go of any strong attachment or stubbornness you might have around what's "normal" in terms of your everyday routines and habits. In any case, this isn't an ideal time to launch an ambitious or significant project. Don't worry if you can't avoid it - just be open to the possibility that everything may not proceed as smoothly as you'd like. The exception is if you're very clear about your intention. If you know without out a doubt what you're doing and why, then it shouldn't be a problem. However, if there are doubts, they'll likely be amplified now and the effects could linger for quite some time, even if they don't show up right away. If you have the option, wait until this cycle has passed.

This is not necessarily a time to "do" anything, but it's important to notice your inner experience. Your thoughts and words could take on a more sensitive quality, and feel more open and vulnerable than usual.Try to pay attention to your feelings and be aware of what's happening around you- ad with others. But remember, there is nothing to fix or change right now. You don't need to become overly concerned with others; it's also important to assess your own need for being appreciated and treated with sensitivity. This timeframe lasts until July 11th.
