Improving Communication and Reducing Conflict during Mercury Retrograde

Not being aware of the influence of certain energies on our thoughts, emotions, and the actions that result doesn’t mean it’s not there.

Often times, we quickly disregard influences we don’t understand or haven’t been aware of because we feel vulnerable and unsafe not being aware of them.

Becoming aware of this tendency can help us respond rather than react to our fear of the unknown.

This doesn’t mean believing or not believing in the influence but rather exploring the possibility that it does and assessing its impact on us.

When we start focusing on a previously unknown influence, we become more aware and sensitive to its effects on us. And we then become more empowered to resolve any detrimental effects.

Mercury retrograde, like other planetary retrogrades, has significant influences over us.

During the 3-4 weeks that Mercury goes into retrograde 3 to 4 times a year, we experience its effects. Knowing when, where, how, and why this happens can help us consciously navigate these retrograde periods with less stress, reactivity, conflict, and more positive outcomes in our lives.

Mercury governs communication. When it goes into retrograde, communication within oneself and with others becomes more difficult.

During this period, it becomes difficult to have clarity, feel inner peace, handle technology optimally, and avoid inner and outer conflict.

Being aware of the influence of Mercury retrograde is a great first step to preventing negative outcomes. Managing its influence is even better.

There are many ways to do that, including using the Mercury planetary karma mantra, identifying potential areas of conflict and preemptively managing them, being more gentle and patient with yourself, etc.
