Note: For those who like to pay attention to the forces at play in the Universe, you must take note that Mercury goes retrograde this weekend beginning February 23rd. Madeline Gerwick, our business astrologer (www.polarisbusinessguides.com) gives us information on this coming timeframe. She says:
Are you ready? Is your computer system fully backed up? Is your car fixed or in good shape? Have you noticed that things are slowing down a bit? Mercury retrograde begins this Saturday. This period is designed to give us time to catch up. We could do that too, if only we would stop trying to start something new during this period, which will last through March 17th.
These periods are also designed to help us learn something new. This occurs naturally when we discover our mistakes and correct them, which is a prevalent situation during Mercury retrograde. If only our culture had a better appreciation for the value of mistakes, we would have a much better experience with these periods. In general though, mistakes are considered a sign of incompetence and something that shouldn't occur. Yet we wouldn't learn nearly as much without them! Mistakes are a sign that we're treading into new territory and learning naturally comes with that situation. It 's part of the natural creative process, and when we reframe mistakes as part of the creative learning process, we gain their true benefits.
Another way we learn during these periods is by taking workshops, classes, seminars, etc. Have you been hankering to learn something new? Perhaps a class you missed taking previously is now being re-offered? Or perhaps you'll have a chance to retake a program? This Mercury retrograde will give us another chance to take advantage of a cycle associated with planning and logistics. It's also a great time to replan a new project.
Ideally you will schedule 50/% less than normal, so you have time to catch up and learn something new. Take advantage of this cycle and you will have a much better experience of them.
Confusion – The energies and directions are now evolving around a great amount of mental activity. With a bit us coming on to Mercury going retrograde, today is a day of balancing opposite ideas and brainstorming everything and not worrying about any chaos in any situation you may encounter, and maybe continuing on a bit…Read on…
Mental conflict is really what confusion is, but it is best to remember that out of conflict comes resolution and synthesis of ideas and issues. So whatever you do with this high mental activity today, make sure you take time to breathe consciously and to think with an open mind, see the opposites and remember that everything is relative to one’s point of view.
Confusion, viewed in a positive manner, brings you great wisdom and helps keep you young and possibly detached from whatever is going on. So, if confusion is on your radar, handle it with the understanding that this is indicative of great mental revolution so when things seem like they are coming apart, simply let your mind be open and wander with flexibility and do not get caught up in the confusion. Remember, it is creative energy not necessarily a bad thing!!! When viewed positively, it can help keep you healthier too as most “colds” are caused by “confusion.”
Let your mantra for today be: I AM cutting through any confusion to see the light in it all...And So It Is!!!
