You may have only heard about Mercury through the dreaded “Mercury retrograde” – that time every few months when everyone on Facebook and Twitter is freaking out because “everything is breaking” and “no one can communicate.” The usual advice is to just sit tight, try not to do anything if you can help it – especially not anything technical, financial, or legal! – and just hide out for three weeks until it’s over.
Nothing annoys Mercury more than this – he symbolizes the energy of curiosity, invention, flexible perception, and play! He invites us to see differently, to experiment, to try things and find out what happens. To approach everything we experience with raw, unformed curiosity, and play with that experience. To drop our expectations and just look at everything as if it’s totally brand new.
The reason Mercury retrograde seems so scary to so many of us is not because there’s anything inherently “wrong” during this time – it’s because we’re fighting the flow!
Every few months, Mercury gives us a gift – the gift of seeing differently. We get to turn things upside down and see what the world looks like from that vantage point. We get the chance to re-consider, re-view, re-orient, re-awaken, re-balance – but in order to receive these gifts we have to STOP trying to keep going in the direction we were headed and try being curious, playful, silly, and unafraid to change things around.
These gifts only feel like curses when we resist and keep trying to press forward.
The next Mercury Retrograde period starts September 17 and ends Oct 9.
Instead of being afraid of it, or confused by it, or just trying to ignore it – why not come and play with it? See what you can learn and discover if you stop pressing ahead and let things get a little silly for awhile?
Do you like fun stories, creative exercises, and thought-provoking conversation?
Are you willing (or maybe even a little excited, shhhh!) to see things in a totally new way?
This is a beautiful way to go deeply into the energy of this time and find out what’s there for you!
This level of the class is limited to 10 people, 2 per call, and in addition to full participation in the class and the recordings, you get to bring your own personal relationship challenge, question, or issue and we’ll use the Mercury framework to illuminate it. Click below to join us and let your personal experience help illuminate this tricky and creative energy for the group!
This is the “wide open” level of the class, where anyone can join in, follow along, ask questions, and get the recordings to re-listen (yes, another “re” word). I will have a Q&A session at the end of each class, and anyone on the call is welcome to contribute insights, questions, or comments. All participants will receive each week’s written material and recordings. Click below to add your energy to the group and join us on this mercurial journey!
