Women Pushing Rock Uphill, Dupont Collection

For your consideration….

Mercury is in retrograde from now until December 22nd. We often feel frustrated during Mercury Retrograde. We want to push and feel we are held back. Mercury Retrograde forces us to slow down to reflect, reconnect, make adjustments, get rid of what no longer serves us and then go forth renewed.

Consider this example we are given. We push and push a rock uphill despite several obstacles that are put in our way. We ignore them and keep pushing only to get to the top of the hill only to find that the foundation for the rock is not ready and there is nowhere to keep the rock. We will have to take it back downhill and start over later. In Mercury Retrograde, we need to pay attention to the obstacles. They are put there for a reason.

As we were reminded yesterday, we are closing out the year of new beginnings. We need to pause and reflect on our growth, what has worked and what we would like to let go or change. Consider it a forced time out and an opportunity to let our Divine Guidance grab our attention to help us tie up loose ends and plant new seeds to help us grow.

That is the HOPE. And so it is.


Bit by bit, piece by piece, HOPE by HOPE action steps anyone can take….

-Meditate/pray…ask…”What is my next step for my highest good and the highest good of all?”

-Drink lots of water.

-Get outdoors and take in at least 10 deep breaths.

-Chill out.


What made me smile yesterday….

-Laundry done.

-Almost all Christmas gifts wrapped.

-Outside lights put up.

-A beautiful warm day with a gorgeous full moon evening.


Love, Blessings and Gratitude,
