What does Mercury Retrograde mean?
Hi guys! I hope you’re enjoying this change of season. I hope you enjoy the article about Tarot. This week I have a short entry, but very important since other than spring (or fall for those living in the southern hemisphere), specific events are going to happen. We are talking about Retrograde Mercury and the healing Energy Waves we are receiving.
So, let’s get to the point with Mercury, since, in less than a week, we’ll “dance” with it. What should you be doing and what should you avoid during mercury retrograde.
I am sure many of you are familiar with Mercury Retrograde. This event happens several times a year and, in theory, is an optical effect that gives the impression that Mercury is rotating backward. Apart from a visual illusion, there is a tremendous energetic impact during this phenomenon. There is a lot of fear on this subject and, it is understandable since there are certain things that perhaps it is better to avoid.
We have events like this every now, and then, such as here. (Besides Mercury)
I also want to mention that you do not have to be scared or lock yourself up at home. For example, I follow some guidelines to not only “avoid” problems, but also to use this energy in my favor, since it is an energy that invites you to “mentally regress” and realize things that maybe, we have been ignoring. In other words, introspection and healing are our strengths during retrograde, while energy investment and creation are the two weaknesses.
Now that I am editing and improving this entry, two years and one month later, I have to say: Mercury will be in retrograde in three weeks…
A few things to keep in mind during Mercury Retrograde.
Major money expenses.
During Mercury in Retrograde, it is better not to make substantial financial investments or buy expensive things. I try to avoid extraordinary expenses that are greater than $200 (unless I have no choice). If you do, it does not mean that something will happen, but it is true that you will have a higher chance of being defective or that this investment will not go as you originally intended.
Purchase of electronics.
It is a good one! It’s where mercury’s retrograde energy most affects. It is challenging to explain why and I do not know it on a deep level, but, anyone who is aware of this issue will tell you the same thing: NO ELECTRONICS. It is very “easy” for something to come out defective or with some problem. Your odds soar if the purchase happens during retrograde. I have lived it in my flesh, and I have seen many people that their computer “just” has broken down or that something has gone inexplicably wrong! … our hot neighbor is who is to blame!
Undertake new projects.
This sometimes cannot be chosen, but if it can be avoided, much better. I worked overtime on the Tarot course last week to precisely avoid launching it during retrograde. What is the problem? I answer you with another question: Why go against the flow? If you have no choice, launch it, but I assure you, if you do it when retrograde is over, that project will always go better. It will flow more. The project will go well because Mercury does not guarantee that it will go wrong. But when there is this energy present, it will flow more smoothly. This is very widespread and proven, and due to global consciousness awareness, it is also very influenced by it.
Do healing rituals.
Whether healing circles, regressions, meditation, shamanic rituals, or even traditional healing (Western medicine). It is good and helps during Mercury Retrograde. The energies move a lot, and it is as if everything “loses color” (the reason to avoid certain things.) But what if you want to “take the color out” from trauma, for example. These energies are in your favor for it!! Connect with your guides.
Look for moments of introspection.
Although I recommend this daily, during retrograde, it can be especially useful. I never recommend living in the past or the future but in the present. However, we have a linear perception of time, and this gives us an ace to play. There are things that, due to past decisions, we may want to change or improve. Studying these things will help us realize how to improve them. The energy of Mercury helps us. Learning from past mistakes is a good idea, as well. Study your past, without judging yourself, but with the goal of healing and growth.
It may sound like fooling around, but if you are self-employed, you will realize that you do much more than “your base job.” I do readings daily, but I also do much more than that. Many of those “extras” are counterproductive during retrograde, so it is best to try to avoid them to give more time to a well-deserved rest than perhaps we forget to take at other times. Look for different plans and add a little more leisure in your life (as long as you’re not buying electronics!) Get the most out from mercury retrograde.
These are, in summary, the main aspects that I consider during retrograde.
The World’s health is shifting to better, and so for us all!
Besides mercury retrograde, there is more. Now, I will comment on another little thing so that you are prepared. I am sure that many of you have had significant impacts in your lives (some of them may have changed it) during 2015 and 2017 and especially between April and September. It is not bad that you have not noticed anything, but it means that they have not been needed for now.
This is due to Energetic Waves that are purifying every being on this planet. In many channelings around the world, including mine, there has been talking about this. Well, we just entered the third, last, and most potent energy wave and it will last until September.
To finish, I am going to give you some advice on these energy waves:
- If there is something in your life that you see that you do not need, let it go, and it will go away quickly.
- Take advantage to eliminate any toxic relationships you have. If something is “extracted” from your life (you are fired, your relationship ends, you lose something, etc.) try to understand why, and let it go.
- Find all the aspects of your life that do not make you happy, study why to try to change what is in your hand.
- If you suffer from a healing crisis (sadness, anguish, or anger for no reason), try to heal yourself or seek help.
- And, be prepared, because everything you need to get out, will get out.

By the way, a shamanic journey can be a very powerful form of healing too.
Remember, these serve a higher purpose, and you will see progress within you on a personal, mental, and spiritual level. You must keep your feet on the ground, open your mind, and accept the criticisms and challenges that the Universe brings. And that is all! Next week will be brief, as I will be sharing some news. See you next Wednesday!
