A Blessing for Mercury Retrograde

As Prayer Month winds down and there's another Mercury Retro in the wind during the holiday season (December 3-22), here's a prayja vu we can all appreciate. Use your mind to make your Retro fit into your holidaze with its Rx of of taking even short breaks to slow down and breathe in the best of love and peace season.

Bless my mind
my short trips
communications devices
and all the words I exchange
in whatever form.

Bless me with the gift
of hesitation
the willingness
to shift my pace
to honor the slow dance
backward spin
the Great DJ in the Sky.

Bless me with patience
to reconsider
and renew

to discover
a slower rate
where less glitch happens
dancing to the beat
of the cosmic drum.

Let no words
Pass my lips about
the Curse of Mercury Retrograde

Let me open its gifts
and gossip about them.

It concerns us so much; The Mountain Astrologer dedicated an entire issue to it. Links to the articles below.

Radical Recommendation
Mercury Retro is great for “re” words, including recreation! If you haven’t already, consider taking a break with The Crystal Ball. It’s my mystery novel, a romp that happens at a longevity organization’s silver anniversary costume party on New Year's Eve. The theme is “come as you’ll be in the future.” You’ll see a lot of wild Mercury expressed, including some pretty crazy Geminis and Virgos.

You're welcome, Linnea. So glad you like it. I believe most of our problems with Mercury Rx happen because we won't align ourselves with the slower, reflective energy of the cycle. That leads to disaster, which literally means "against the stars."

Have a good Retro! :)
