Tips for handling Mercury retrograde, which runs until August 8

Mercury retrograde from Astrology for Time Management video
Mercury has been retrograde in Leo since July 14, giving us a dramatic experience of fuzzy thinking, miscommunication, technology breakdowns, lost items, and obstacles to creative expression. The retrograde lasts until August 8 (CDT), although it may require a few days after that to sort out your experiences during the retrograde before you can move forward.

Whenever Mercury is retrograde (generally three times a year for about three weeks each time), we have an opportunity to re-think areas represented by the sign it occupies. With Mercury in Leo during the Sun's journey through its own sign, we have a stronger than usual opportunity to consider Leo's themes of spirituality, the heart's desire, creative self-expression, and childlike joy. Take this opportunity to slow down, go within, and review anything in your life that has brought challenges, delays, or frustrations.

Here are several resources about Mercury retrograde, including some of Anne's blog posts on how to make the most of these slowed down periods:

The arts provide a powerful way to connect with our inner selves because—at their best—they communicate in the symbolic language of the soul.

Journey Within’s haunting arrangement consists of variations on a 17th century French melody called Picardy, which later was used in the hymn Let All Mortal Flesh Keep Silent. Let this music draw you in to enter the gate of your heart. Let the paintings help you make the Journey Within.

Music created and produced by Anne Nordhaus-Bike. Paintings by Anne Nordhaus-Bike: Sophie's Rose, oil on canvas; Heart, watercolor on paper.
