Mercury retrograde can be a frustrating time. This time is is famous for everything from computer and car breakdowns to interpersonal miscommunications. There’s a reason why, for the astrologically minded, Mercury retrograde is a time to be cautious. It’s a trying time that calls for an extra dose of attention and mindfulness to make sure you don’t fall into chaos.
Here’s a few things not to do during Mercury retrograde in order to avoid undue turmoil.
What Not to Do During Mercury Retrograde
1. Don’t take things too seriously or personally. During Mercury retrograde, you’re liable to have missed calls, dropped connections, misinterpreted e-mails, and all manner of related communications breakdowns. It’s important to factor in the astrological weather and not take any of this personally. If you have a communications breakdown with somebody, stay patient and don’t automatically assume it’s the other person’s fault.
2. Don’t start new business ventures. It’s too rocky of a time to take big business risks. Keep your plans under your hat until Mercury retrograde passes. Then, and only then, should you start signing contracts, making legal agreements or going on big business pushes (or making any major decisions involving money).
3. Don’t overtax your electronics or vehicles. This is a major time for electronic breakage. Be very careful with handling items—stay very mindful of how you’re interacting with your environment. Bear in mind that if you’re not extra careful with your stuff, you may end up with broken gear on your hands.
4. Don’t lean on the details. If you schedule meetings, they’re likely to hit snags. If you try to get things in writing and nail down the details, you’re likely to get frustrated. Navigating Mercury retrograde is a process of learning to surf chaos and, similarly, learning to let go of everything you can’t control. This is a powerful lesson to take from this time: Stop trying to control everything, and let the Universe handle things.
5. Don’t make major purchases or pay for major repairs. Since things are in an extreme state of flux, you’re liable to end up making bad purchases, ending up with broken stuff, or otherwise ending up with things going against the plan. Save up your impulse buys, and if you can put off that repair, do so. There shouldn’t be a need to rush into huge decisions anyway—embrace patience.
6. Don’t stay complacent. Just because it’s Mercury retrograde doesn’t give you an excuse to hide under the covers. Take this time to go within and seriously consider your plans, directions, and overall path in life. That self-awareness will pay off in boosted clarity when Mercury goes direct and you push your plans out into the world.
Something You Can Do During Mercury Retrograde
One thing you can do to help ease yourself through Mercury retrograde is to build a crystal grid. Crystal grids are powerful spiritual tools that help enhance manifestation and desire. A crystal grid built specifically for Mercury retrograde, using crystals and gemstones traditionally connected with Mercury or the things that the retrograde negatively effects, can help to counteract some of issues commonly experienced during the retrograde period.
All you need is a grid, which you can find online, or create your own from your imagination, and a selection of powerful crystals that you have imbued with your intentions and manifestations. Watch the video below to see how it’s done:
Mercury Retrograde Can be a Gift
Though Mercury retrograde can be a trying time, it also brings an abundance of lessons: take the chance to gain a bit of self-awareness, patience, and clarity about what you’re doing. Ceasing to rush around and learning to sit down and think about where you’re going can be Mercury retrograde’s greatest gift. Take advantage of it, and get ready for better results when Mercury goes direct!
