Hello again! Good Morning, afternoon or evening, wherever you are in the world. It is still a busy Monday over here.
I am enjoying a 15 minute salad-sparklingwater-coffee break. People are queuing to schedule their appointments still with the promotion for personal numerologies and Feng Shui Q & A … last day is March 28. 2018.
But, even on such a busy day, I won’t miss posting and sticking to my goal. I am really enjoying being here around with you and especially writing for my #12dailypostchallenge.
The coffee is almost ready and since a while I am scribbling here in my golden notebook… Did I tell you already, that the planet Mercury is traveling retrograde through brash #Aries from March 22-April 15, 2018.
This trickster planet could mix up our messages, emails, whatsapp’s and not to mention your verbal communications. Without any doubt this is as fine a time, as any, to familiarize with our communication styles! We already had some bumps with words early this morning…. happily we could rescue the incident. But you better watch your words, as somethimes there is simply no plan B,C orD to rescue.
Doing some brainstorming on this subject, there is an interesting aspect for love to consider. The slow motion of this planet reflects in different ways on our daily life. Out of sudden putting the prefix “re” to most of the verbs is an excellent deal. Let’ s see:
Fear vs Love |Day 5 (#12dailypostchallenge)
“Hang on! Don’t seal it with a kiss, a handshake or a hastily dashed deal memo. Especially not, when you are in the middle of any Mercury-Retrograde-phase. You could regret your impulsive decision, once Mercury is back on track.
But for any other moment, go ahead”. That generally is the special tip, I give my clients in love-romance-relationship matters. And, together with this, I normally hand them over a small copy with the Mercury-retrograde-phases of the current year.
Here a sticky note just for you:
Mercury Retrograde | 2018
March 22nd – April 15th
July 26th – August 19th
November 16th – December 6th
For the record we are now still in 2018. Working on this chapter, it is the first of three retrograde phases this year. Happily, Mercury will be turning direct just in time for the company’s anniversary and my birthday.
There is so much information in internet available on this particular subject. It is astonishing. From backing up your data, double-checking your travel arrangements, avoiding the signing off for any new project, calculating a lot of extra time to transfer to your appointments and not to mention to the airport. That is all fine! Don’t ignore those tips.
But what happens with love and your relationships during this period?
The other day I re-listened to an audio I posted in facebook about 3 years ago. It has a long list with different kind of tips, but what most caught my attention are the relationship “does & dont´s” , which are absolutely timeless.
Love is a complicated subject and relationships are staying right behind on that list. I remember last year, December 2017. This was the last of a very “inconvenient-Mercury-retrograde” phase, which ended just 2 days before Christmas. Everybody was super stressed. Christmas shopping was hell and many forget gifts and had to find last minute “solutions”.
At that time Ana Karen came to see me at my office. She was desperate. Her communication system apparently failed completely (devices and verbal communication). Also, the day of our appointment her car didn’t start and she came in Uber. She literally said: ” My whole life is like a huge cable salad. Plus in case you thought this is not enough, Miguel just proposed to me. Look at the ring. I am afraid. I don´t know what to do. We have been discussing so much and know he shows up with this surprise.”.
I was very happy for her and explained that getting a marriage proposal during any Mercury-retrograde-phase is a good thing. You have then at least three weeks to re-analyse the feelings for this person, re-define your common goals, re-structure future plans and of course to re-thing, if this engagement is what you really desire. So, to all of you, if right now you are in a similar situation. Enjoy! In general the dynamic is slow during these weeks and invites to check out all the necessary angles of any situation.
On the other hand, if you and your special someone (by the way applies also for friends and family) had trouble or decided to live separated for some time, I have good news for you. Mercury retrograde is also the invitation to practice forgiveness and re-connect. So don´t be surprised, if out of sudden you feel ready to meet with this person.
Keep your pride at home. Do the first step and give that person a call. A long talk can do miracles!
In Ana Karen´s case I suggested, that she should enjoy every moment with her partner. There is no reason for fear. Actually, I consider fear in a relationship the absolute killer. She agreed to do the exercise of paper and pen. Writing down what are your feeling for the person in question, is an excellent exercise. Writing clears your mind and gives you a wider vision.
Time is over, my clients are waiting… in one of the next chapters, I will talk also about the “Ex´s” during Mercury-Retrograde.
For now, I send you all a big hug. Thanks for stopping by and I´d love to read your comments. Talk you to you tomorrow.
