Mercury Retrograde: 10 May to 3 June
GENERAL READING: This Mercury Retrograde is all about working with the Eclipse season to help us reprogram our minds so that we are not following into scarcity and always thinking that there ISN'T a way to get to where we want to be. We are going to be taken into places where we are limiting our growth and will be waking to new value that we need to discover from within. We can’t expect others to value us if we don’t first KNOW that we are valuable! This is when we all will start walking a new plan on how we want to grow a new crop that will take our dedication to become what we dream. Something in your heart wants you to go for something and it IS NOT what you have seen before. So, we are manifesting out of the blue with ideas we would like to see expand and be what supports us. Expect to be thinking of your creative gifts and what you really, really would love to do BECAUSE it comes so natural to you. Also expect to feel like life is going way too quickly and to feel like you want to slow down and be with the Earth and trust the process more. We are learning to not be so judgmental in thinking things aren’t going our way and to find a new view that has us working without instant results as we hold a vision on where we want to be. There is this current state -- and a future you want to move into, and the steps now just need you being okay at not having things microwave fast. It wants us to learn to love the process of growing our food while being patient and positive with however long that may take.
++ MERCURY RETROGRADE 10 May to 3 June 5 degrees Gemini to 26 Taurus ++
ARIES: This is when you are to go back and write a new story about how you talk about your value and what you share with the world that deals with your creative gifts and what you most love to do. You will be going back to examine how you have been keeping quiet and following along because your beliefs were focused in a direction that was manipulated on you. It’s where you learned something and now you keep bracing for how you think things will be. It’s time to go back and understand why you say and think the things you do and HOW to upgrade this so that you are valuing your existence and positioning yourself as important and deserving of stability and love. You will be going into ways that you accept scarcity and are to plant new seeds where you are attracting those who help you share the true depth of your soul.
TAURUS: This is when you are to make changes with how you assert yourself in life where you are to accept the need for a start over and something shifting with your foundation or the ways you look at programmed expectations from others. You will be working on projects that deal with supporting yourself from your creative gifts -- and it will be from this retrograde cycle that you see what needs you letting go of scarcity or fear based ideas that keep you chasing what others want you to do. It’s about finding your voice again and deciding to assert from what feels like it will support you EVEN IF you have to draw strong boundaries and not let others keep you from doing what you want to do. You also will be determined to work on debt or to integrate new ways to generate money that will help you invest in more security. Trust where you are feeling called to lead because YOU are the one that others need to follow.
GEMINI: This is when you are going to be pulled back before you can move forward because something needs to shift with your feelings that will influence how you assert yourself in life. This can be that something reveals that is to fill you with compassion when before you were hiding your true feelings and thinking you could go forward without facing how things are REALLY making you feel. In some way, you are to speak up and make these feelings known that are guiding you to assert your truth and something that NOW does feel like it is important. You will be having many talks with others where you are to share how things are making you feel and not escape because you want to create peace and not face judgment. It’s better to keep it real and bring your feelings to the table. You will be questioned, and your job is to not back down from what IS coming up in you for good reason.
CANCER: This is when you are to do some soul searching -- but first you need to go back and get together with others so you can really shift your vibration to seeing for a solution and to valuing the process that helps you figure out what to do. You can feel that change is on the horizon, but you need to first connect and use your throat to declare your place in the world and the opportunities you want to manifest. Something needs to be talked about and with people who support the changes you are going through. Others play an important role in being a mirror to help you remember who you are and that you don’t need to judge what is broken -- and to allow that to influence you compromising too much.

There are ways that you are staying in this one track and not opening to a new path that will allow you freedom to be this other thing. People are showing up that need you handling them where you aren’t so taken by what you see as mistakes in them, and instead are responding in higher ways so that you allow them to be who they are, and you to be who you are.

Where you were judgmental and cold because you didn’t understand how to bring the peace, you will be taken back to do things better and to see that the puzzle pieces are now here for you to correct and move forward. Things will fall into place that deal with your work environment and ways to promote or beautify your business. Stay glass half full even if you don’t have all the answers yet because things are responding to the ideas you have about them. This is to get you showing up in a new role where you are doing your soul’s purpose work and expanding from the joy of seeing your work grow.
