During the week of September 22nd, many rejoiced, looked to the sky, and screamed, “Mercury Retrograde is finally over! Finally!” Now, while we love a good celebration session and all, we have to admit that were weren’t exactly jumping for joy during that time.
That’s because – brace yourselves – Mercury Retrograde wasn’t actually over.
Yes, the retrograde period may have ended on September 22nd, but that totally excluded the fact that Mercury’s shadow was still thriving. According to Adams, Mercury Retrograde begins and ends with a shadow. For instance, during this particular cycle, the first shadow started on August 10th and the final shadow will bring it all to a close on October 7th.
We know, this may be shocking – but it also makes a lot of sense. That’s because, according to Adams, the planet Mercury rules communication. So, when it seems to move backwards, that can cause some communication-based chaos. Specifically, in modern times, it can easily affect computers and telephones.
Fortunately, this will all end today once Mercury’s shadow dissipates. What this means for us mere mortals is that there will be a sense of completion in our lives.
In other words: This is some pretty great news. Especially since it means that, once this period is over, it’s going to be the perfect time to organize your life, get everything in place, and sign on the dotted line. Adams, in fact, recommends that you work to get everything in writing, so you are surrounding yourself with finality as you enter this new stage.
Ultimately, Adams explains that Mercury Retrograde provides us all with the perfect time to review all that’s before us and to prepare accordingly.
Now, let’s show Mercury what we’re made of.
