It's that time of the year again - the Mercury Retrograde is upon us, and it's time to brace ourselves for the cosmic storm. From April 1st - April 25th the planet of communication and technology will be spinning in reverse, bringing chaos, delays, and misunderstandings to our lives. This Mercury Retrograde also happens when we are all gathered with our family and prime for misunderstandings and miscommunication. Ouch! However, we can get through this and even better, we can actually use this energy to our benefit... but only if we are mindful and prepared.


First things first: what is the Mercury Retrograde, and why does it make our lives so challenging? In astrology, Mercury rules communication, transportation, and technology - all crucial aspects of our daily routines. When the planet goes into retrograde, it appears to move backward in the sky, creating an illusion of confusion and disorientation. This can manifest in different ways, from communication breakdowns and technological glitches to travel disruptions and contract delays.


To survive the Mercury Retrograde, we need to be proactive and prepared. One of the most critical things you can do is to back up your data - computers, phones, cloud storage, everything. This is not just a good practice in general, but especially crucial during the retrograde, when tech malfunctions are more likely. Make sure you have all your important files saved in multiple places, so you won't lose them if something goes wrong.


Another common theme during the Mercury Retrograde is miscommunication and misunderstandings. It's like everyone is speaking a different language, and you're not sure if you're getting through. The antidote to this is to practice active listening and nonviolent communication. Don't assume anything, and ask clarifying questions if you're unsure. Repeat back what the other person said to ensure you understand each other. And if you feel triggered or frustrated, take a deep breath and count to ten before responding.


During the Mercury Retrograde, things tend to slow down, and delays are the norm. You can't control external factors, but you can control your inner mindset and attitude. Instead of stressing out and getting impatient, try to embrace the slower pace and find ways to enjoy the moment. Maybe you can read a book, practice yoga, or take a bubble bath. Maybe you can use the time to re-evaluate your goals and priorities and make adjustments if necessary. Remember that sometimes, the universe has a plan for us that we can't see yet.


Finally, it's essential to protect your energy during the Mercury Retrograde. This period can be emotionally draining and intense, and you don't want to be caught off guard. Make sure you're getting enough rest, eating healthily, and exercising regularly. Avoid drama and toxic people if possible, and limit your exposure to news and social media. Instead, spend time in nature, meditate, and connect with your spiritual practice. Use this time to recharge your batteries and strengthen your inner resilience.
