Moving Forward with Mercury Direct

Retrograde relief is at hand

So long, Mercury Retrograde! Our good vibes will return when Mercury finally goes direct on May 22, 2016. And once mischievous Mercury starts moving forward again, it's time for YOU to move forward, too! 

Launching new projects, signing contracts, making major purchases, initiating relationships -- all the activities that were verboten during Mercury Retrograde, are now safe to pursue. 

And, now that the irritation level has subsided, you can appreciate the upside to these past three weeks. Upside? Well, yes. Those forced time-outs from business as usual actually served an important purpose: giving you an opportunity to review, reconsider and redo aspects of your life that were sorely in need of re-evaluation. Of course, you hadn't noticed the need for re-evaluation until you had to slow down, so give thanks for Mercury Retrograde!

Taking some time away from your ordinary reality helped you see situations from a fresh perspective. While your rational mind was taking a hiatus, your intuition was stronger than usual. You may have discovered innovative solutions to ongoing challenges, or a new understanding of what really matters to you.

Now it's time to take action based on these new insights. Even though your outer world might look exactly like it did three weeks ago, your inner world has shifted. Give yourself a few days after Mercury changes directions to realign your inner and outer realities, and then get going!

Gracias for this post. My communication system has been kind of out of whack these last few weeks. What with moving into a new place, exploring a new environment and re-assessing my life priorities and all. Today I feel like I am ready to 'ease into' more creative and productive ventures now that Mercury is direct. Is this simply and strictly a matter of personal consciousness?

I am not a fanatic about astrology, yet neither am I totally ignorant about how the heavens above impact on and influence events here on earth. Blessings for all to have fresh new and exciting adventures!
Namaste! @Peta_de_Aztlan

I just hope that the impact happens quickly - I've suffered from this rather badly (relationship-wise) and I am clinging on to this to see things moving forward again !

It's been a roller-coaster for me and a shock to make changes too. There is still some residue which needs to be cleaned up, but I SEE now AND see that I need (and can now) move on. The unknown is still the unknown on a mundane level, but the different path is now open.

Just get ready, your business will take off, your careers too. Your relationships, everything should have been on hold in the retrograde of Mercury, never signing legal docs.. I never do. As Pisces, it just made my thoughts slow down, too britghten my already strong intuition.
Uranus turned direct Dec. 10th midnight, (9th into the 10th midnight) I meditated half hour till 12:01 PST what great energy.
Now get ready to see all changes, good and bad happen as Uranus is in Aries for 7 years. It was direct in Pisces, my sign, 2003-2010 and a lot of changes occured so did my spiritual self grow.
Get ready for possible upheaval and quakes on a global scale, war and such, med break throughts, cures for cancer, Aids, HPV, Blindness, spinal injuries and so forth, a forward move to a green planet.
Then comes my planet, Mod-ruling planet into my sign for the next 14 years, Feb. 4th till March 2026, I no longer Am the Fish out of water, I'm in my own element.
Disillusionment, what is real before you, or is it? 14 years my friends, a truth of spiritual heighteness, consciousness. Have you awaken now, to the awareness of your consciousness??? That of NOT of the THINKING mind? Just in the knowing. Be in the knowing, your own intuitions, hone it, practice it and you will see the truth before you.

@Zahir and Angela

We now see and understand the reasons for people to have these problems or "garbage" as you call it Zahir. The truth is we are all on a journey to find ourselves and we all evolve at differing speeds. So we must be patient and help foster another's journey to find the paradise that we see here on Earth everyday!
