A Note From Dr. Beverly Nelson, Director
Did you experience the effects of Mercury retrograde this past week? If so, you probably already know that this kind of astrological event can immerse us in a state of total confusion, disbelief and even despair. Who wouldn’t feel frustrated?
However, and just like everything else in life, any series of misunderstandings and any string of awkward events can be used to our advantage. Maybe the trouble you’re going through is a clear message from the universe to pay attention.
For example: why not re-arrange the furniture in your house to prevent future accidents that may be worse than that sore toe with which you bumped the leg of the couch the other day? Or, if your credit card got declined, maybe it’s a reminder that you really don’t use it that much – why not just cancel it? It’s not a matter of minimizing the mishaps that are causing us stress: we just need to learn how to deal with them more effectively and learn the lessons they are trying to teach us.
The same applies for any sort of difficulty you might face in your life, whether it’s Mercury retrograde or not. Let the unpleasant be more than a bother: let it be a lesson to be happier in the near future.
Do you agree? Have you had similar experiences during Mercury retrograde? I’d love to hear from you!
