Making Good Use of Mercury Retrograde

“New ways of thinking about familiar things can release new energies and make all manner of things possible.” Charles Handy

“Most humans are not couch potatoes or whiners. We are doers and creators. In fact humans need to “make a dent.” Francis Moore Lappe

It’s a busy time here on planet earth and Mercury retrograde periods provide an excellent time to pause, rethink and reflect with an eye towards renewal.

Over the past week on two different occasions,  people have said to me (in a friendly way) “It’s not important to think about that now.” The retrograde period in Sagittarius provides a good time to look at the way we think about things. With the fast pace of events sometimes more important things are pushed into the background.

The tendency towards fragmentation is high now with the increased pace of communications. In the early computers one of the important instructions for maintenance was to periodically “defrag the computer.” A graphic would come up of a circle with some colored pieces inside but a lot of colored fragments on the ground outside it. When you hit the defrag button all the colored pieces outside would go inside  the circle in a perfect pattern. Like restoring a sense of inner wholeness. Or peace of mind.

The Dalai Lama has written that,”We must  always be thinking about what we are thinking.”

Mercury will station retrograde on December 3 at 29 degrees of Sagittarius and continue its retrograde motion until the direct station on Dec 23 at 13 Sagittarius.
