Mercury Retrograde: People Are Bitches!

 

My God, whatever it is, people are just losing their minds by the looks of the last 2 weeks! We're all being so aggressive and I'm fed up of it, just like everyone else from what I've heard!

But look guys and gals, just LISTEN to what I've realised! 

There is a reason for us all going gaga lately peeps. It's called the dreaded "Mercury Retrograde". 


This is basically a transition when the planet Mercury aligns in a certain way that makes us all a little over sensitive because of the change in energies that come from this movement. The thing is, Mercury is the planet that represents our mind - Logical thinking, decision making and most importantly, it affects our communication with others.

Astrologists that write/warn about Mercury Retrograde actually advise you to try and not take things too personally when communicating with people because our communication process skills basically go on holidays for 3 weeks during this phase. It's shit but it makes a lot of sense. 


The great thing about it is it gets out any pent up anger or issues you have with others and with Mars (God of War) being an influence for us this October, that gives us the confidence to speak up about these issues and get them out of the way, but can result in others being offended or upset by our words.

And what does that mean?!?! It's a recipe for a serious bitch fest for the majority of people! 

Fun times!

To put this in more perspective, Mercury goes into Retrgrade 3 times a year, how fabulous!.....Grrrr.

I HATE when Mercury is in retrograde because it happened in January and June of this year, and I'll tell you the crap that I dealt with during those times, basically you couldn't make it up! From getting my drink spiked and going literally loopy for that entire phase in January after the trouble I caused from being in such a state, to the second time in June when there was shit happening in my relationship, but these things all happened during the Mercury Retrograde phase but were all for my own good and have worked out for the better now, I'm glad to say :)

Phases like this are really blessings in disguises. 

By this I mean, you figure out shit you probably didn't know about people in your life, have the confidence to have it out with said people and the result in the end, whether they're in your life or not, is all meant to happen in your life path. Again, it is for your best interest, so keep that in mind.



Now, for the skeptics going "Fuck this shit, you could easily just link issues at that time to Mercury retrograde and say voila, it's magic. Crap happens everyday of the week!" 

Well, no. Because over the whole year, those 2 issues personal to myself that I just mentioned were random situations that then became ongoing and both roughly lasted 2-3 weeks until they were finally resolved, conveniently after Mercury moved positions out of retrograde. And while now being in contact with my sister in Wexford, and my friends in Dublin, it's literally like reading my mind, because they're going through the exact same drastic bitching sessions that I've been experiencing the last few weeks which by the way hasn't been as intense as it is now, so it's shitville. 

On a positive note, I'm happy to say it will all tie itself up from the 25th onwards of this month, and the atmosphere in general for everybody won't be as tense, plus issues any of you need to deal with when it comes to other people will be sorted!

 To put it simply, if you've been conscious of why people you used to get on great with are suddenly eating the head off you for such a small thing, don't worry about it. It's actually not their fault, and it's not your fault for reacting to it either. It's just the energy that radiates from Mercury during this phase that makes everyone pretty moody, sensitive and unable to process any form of communication with others without it coming out wrong and offending them.

My advice is during the next Mercury Retrograd, let's all become hermits, hide in our beds with a big stash of junk food and quick access to the toilet then come out when happy vibes are back in place and everyone can live in a world of rainbows and smiles! :D


Keep an eye on these dates for next year to see if you notice any weird behaviour during these times of the year: 

2015
Phase 1:January 21st till Feb 11th
Phase 2: May 18th till June 10th
Phase 3: September 17th till October 9th

Expert advice that I've researched recommends not making any serious decisions when it comes to education, work or other vital steps that could change the outcome of your life. Wait things out for another week or 2 and once we're out of this hazy time, things could be put into better perspective for you.

On a side note, Mercury affects anything mechanical such as microwaves, computers, etc. So if you notice a pattern of these things going bust out of nowhere, blame Mercury!

3 more days and we can all breathe a sigh of relief together! 

To finish off, I hope everyone feels a bit better after reading this, I know how life can just start getting to you and people aren't great for help if they're feeling shit too. 

So go with the flow, try and keep to yourself for the next few days, and when the weekend comes, we can all let loose and get scuts while dressed up super sexy in our Halloween costumes!

Keep smiling! :)
